Don’t get me wrong, I am an avid Sephora visitor and lover of makeup that I cannot afford. However, to try and save my bank account a little bit, I’ve managed to find some good steals on drugstore makeup. Who doesn’t love a good deal, right?
The first item is the Revlon Super Lustrous Lipsticks. As you’ll come to know, I wear lipstick almost everyday (the darker the better). I am a tried-an- true MAC fan, but wanted to find another option as well. These lipsticks are super pigmented and they don’t dry out my lips, because let’s be real, ain’t nobody got time for that. For around $5.00, you can’t go wrong. I just picked up Toast of New York and Black Cherry and they do not disappoint!
The second item is the Maybelline Color tattoo cream gel eyeshadow. I don’t know about you, but I am not a fan when my eyeshadow creases. This stuff works wonders. Not only does it give you a great base color that you can use alone, but you can also put regular powder eyeshadow over top and it helps it last all day and enhances the color. My two go-to’s are “too cool” and “bold gold”.
A recent find (stalking the aisles at Target) is the L’Oreal Paris Infallible 24hr Eyeshadow. I was shocked at just how pigmented these eyeshadows were. They do not have any matte shades, my obsession, but they are great when you want a little shimmer. I love combining these with the color tattoo cream shadows. My current fav combo is the maybelline bold gold with L’Oreal Amber rush on top.
The final item is one that I have been using for years. My go-to mascara will forever be CoverGirl Lashblast volume mascara. Yes, I am talking about that little orange tube that you see everywhere. This mascara is great for everyday wear, doesn’t clump, and gets my eyelashes nice and coated. If I want to use a higher end mascara, I will layer that over top of lashblast for a more dramatic effect.
For all of these items being under $10.00 each, I’d say they are a pretty good bargain. Try them out for yourself and let me know what you think!
