My favorite drug store makeup products/brands

For today’s post I wanted to talk about my favorite drug store makeup products and brands. Nothing is more frustrating than when you buy a million different drug store products hoping they work and all your left with is a drawer full of wasted money! I am here to save you time by telling you my favorite affordable brands and products that I KNOW work great because well, I’ve tried them all! Let’s start off with Revlon makeup, their foundations in particular are one of my favorites! Nothing better than a great affordable foundation because lets be real ladies…high end foundations can get REAL spendy real fast. My personal favorite is the Revlon Colorstay foundation. I find it’s nice and blendable and stays on through out the day! It lasts for up to 24 hours which is ideal for all my working mama’s out there!

Ok, lets talk eye shadows! I recently did a holiday inspired makeup look on my IG page using Milani’s Must Have Metallics palette in shade 08. And honestly I was super surprised at how easily the eye shadows applied and how pigmented the shades were. Each shade I used blended out nicely as well which is a must! I had a small issue with fallout but other than that I was super happy with the results I got when my look was complete. I have also recently used and loved their more neutral colored palette called Bare Necessities which consists of earthy looking tones for a nice everyday eye look.

Lets move on to blushes! Milani brand is another favorite of mine when it comes to drug store blushes. Again they have amazing pigmentation and glide over foundation great without any patchiness. My favorite? The Milani Baked Blush line! one of my favorite shades is Berry Amore.

Alright last but not least lets talk lips! Hands down my favorite brand for lips is NYX, they have theeee best lip products in my opinion. My go-to is their Butter Gloss! I pretty much have one in every shade. They are so creamy and the colors are perfect for when you want just a little pop of color on your lips. Their Soft Matte lipcream is also great for those of you that prefer a matte lippy! The pigmentation is sooo good and they stay put really well throughout the day. What I love about NYX brand is the high quality products you get for such a reasonable price! Cant beat that. I hope this was helpful for any of you gals wanting to switch up your makeup products but aren’t exactly sure which brands to go for! I will go ahead and link some of my favorite shades in both the Butter Gloss and Matte lipcream below.
