Although I spend a lot of money on higher end makeup, there’s nothing like going to the drugstore and picking up some drugstore goodies. So, for today’s beauty chat, I want to know what are your favorite drugstore makeup products?

My favorite powder eyeshadow is the L’oreal Infallible eyeshadow in Amber Rush, which is a GORGEOUS rose gold eyeshadow. This is so pigmented and smooth. It’s one of my favorite powder eye shadows ever because it’s such great quality. I love applying this all over the lids for an easy daytime look, and it even looks really pretty on the inner corner of the eyes as a highlight.

I love a good cream eyeshadow, and the Maybelline Color Tattoo in Chocolate Suede is a beautiful dark brown shade that has a golden sheen to it. I’ve done a review comparing these color tattoo eye shadows to the MAC Paint Pots (minus Chocolate Suede because I didn’t have it at that time). Although the MAC one’s are better quality, the Maybelline Color Tattoos aren’t as expensive and still great eye shadows whether you wear them on their own or as a base.

I don’t own many Milani products, but their illuminating face powder in Amber Nectar is a subtle, yet beautiful peach nectar highlighting shade. I like to build this up as a highlighter on the tops of the cheek bones or on top of matte blushes to add a slight sheen. These aren’t super pigmented or shimmery so if you’re into more subtle, natural makeup, this is a good option.

My most purchased drugstore item would have to be lipsticks, so it’s no surprise that I have the most favorites in this category. I love a good matte lipstick, which is why I love the Revlon Matte Lip Balm in Sultry, which is a plum toned dusty pink shade. This is a great everyday color that looks very beautiful on medium-deep skin tones. Maybelline Touch of Spice is a gorgeous mauve shade that’s similar to Sultry, but it’s more brown toned. I’m not usually a fan of Maybelline lipsticks, but this is a gorgeous everyday color that lives in my purse because it’s so easy to swipe on and goes with every kind of makeup look. NYX Matte Lip Cream in Antwerp is a gorgeous coral-pink shade that is generally not something I enjoy, but this color is very subtle on my lips and just adds some freshness, especially on the days where you just need a little bit of color to your look. This shade is perfect for the spring and summer months when you want something a bit more vibrant and fresh, yet not so intense that you couldn’t wear it to work.

    I am like you-not really super into drug store products (Except mascaras). As for me, the only lower price point makeup I like is Milani and the fabulous Colour Pop Cosmetics.

    • I haven’t tried too much stuff from Milani, but of course ColourPop is amazing!! What’s your fave drugstore mascara? I’ve tried some, but I’ve never really liked them. I think my favorite drugstore brand is probably L’Oreal.

      • DeidraK

        I don’t know if I have a favorite per say but I do enjoying the various Cover Girl & L’Oreal ones-probably Rimmel London has the best quality ones I have used as far as drugstore mascaras go. Mascara is a tricky thing-sometimes it all seems the same high or low end.

        • Yeah, I agree! I haven’t tried any Rimmel mascaras before, but I’ll have to check them out next time I want to purchase a drugstore mascara.

  • I love the Maybelline matte lipstick line! They added new shades and they’re all beautiful. I think you’ll like Lust for Blush and if you’re in to orange reds Craving Coral is awesome.

    • You know me so well! Those are the shades I’ve been wanting, but they’re always sold out at my Target!

  • The Loreal Infallible Eyeshadow are some of my favourites, the colour payoff is absolutely stunning!

  • I love Revlon and Rimmel blushes – I’m obsessed in fact. And Bourjois everything! I’m on my fifth tube of the Bourjois CC Cream. It’s honestly one of the best I’ve ever used!

    • I like Bourjois! It’s just hard to find in store here in the States, and sometimes I hate buying makeup online if I can’t return it easily, which sucks. I have a couple products from Bourjois and love it! I wish it was readily available here.

  • Wish we could get the Maybelline Creamy Mattes in the UK :( they sound amazing! I love the Milani illuminator though and use a Colour Tattoo most days xx

    • Aww hopefully they release them there soon! They’re really great lipsticks :)
