5 Drugstore Makeup Products I Love

drugstore makeup favorites
After trying a bunch of new products the last few months, I'm back with 5 more drugstore makeup products I love! You can see some of my other drugstore favorites here (makeup) and here (hair products).

I've been trying different drugstore foundations in an attempt to fill in for my beloved but pricey Estee Lauder Double Wear. I personally like more of a full coverage foundation, and one that is very long-wearing. Working full-time in PR I often have long work days that extend into the evenings, and often shoot blog photos after work, so I need a foundation that's going to last. This one is definitely my favorite drugstore foundation find so far! It applies smoothly, has great coverage, and lasts far longer than the average foundation. I also like that they sell a version for normal/dry skin and one for combo/oily skin (me!), and have a good range of colors for both. This seems like a small thing, but I love the built-in pump. It makes application really easy and I like that I can easily control how much product I'm using (without wasting). Most days I only need a pump and a half because it applies and blends easily, and is very buildable. I wouldn't say I love it 100% as much as Estee Lauder Double Wear, but it's a pretty darn good dupe and I've already repurchased it! If you try it out or have used it in the past definitely let me know what you think!

Shoutout to my friend Brianna for giving me this to try a few months ago because I love love love this product! I've always been a fan of highlighting pens for some quick and easy highlighting/brightening. This one is 100% as good as more expensive versions I've tried (MAC, Bare Minerals, Mary Kay). I use a little bit of this after my under-eye concealer for a bit of extra brightening (I have really really dark circles), as well as down the bridge of my nose, just under my brows, and to highlight my cupid's bow. I blend it out with my damp blending sponge, and it's the prettiest subtle highlight!

I've been using this lipliner as a dupe for the MAC "whirl" or "velvet teddy" liner and love it! I would say it doesn't last quite as long, but at a price point under $3.50, I'm really happy with it. I also have this liner in the color "all natural," which is a great darker nude.

I've been rebuying this for over a year and it really does make such a difference in the volume of your lashes! I coat the front and back, and then do a second coat on the front.

I just bought my third tube of this mascara because it's so good! Once it's on, it seriously stays put (no weird smudges on your eyelid!), it keeps the lashes from clumping, and the curved wand definitely helps to curl your lashes. It's under $10, so definitely worth giving a try!
