Drugstore Makeup Tag




Hi there :) today I wanted to show you my most used makeup brushes, but there was a little snafu and I forgot my camera at home so I decided to do a tag instead! I found this one from one of my favorite youtubers blogs

1. What is your favorite drugstore makeup brand overall?

I'd have to go with L'Oreal or NYX.

2. What are your favorite face, cheek and lip products?

For face: L'Oreal True Match Foundation, Rimmel Stay Matte Powder, ELF Maximum Coverage Concealer. For Cheeks: NYC Sun n Brozner, Milani Baked Blushes, and ELF highlighters. And Lip: Wet n Wild lipsticks especially from the Fergie Collection. I love Baby Lips, Revlon Lipsticks, Maybelline Color Whispers. My favorite Lipliner is Toast from Maybelline. I'm going to include eyes in this also: L'Oreal Telescopic Shocking Extensions Mascara, Rimmel Soft Kohl liners, Wet n Wild Mega Liner, L'Oreal Infallible Shadows. Maybelline Define A Brow Maybelline Clear Mascara.

3. Least favorite product?

I tried the Wet n Wild eye makeup remover and it burned my eyes SO bad.

4. What is the best makeup bargain?

I'd say NYC, Wet n Wild and ELF. All those brands have some really great products and are very affordable!

5. What is your favorite underdog product? (Something you love that often gets overlooked?)

My current favorite Bronzer is NYC Sun n Bronze in Montauk Bronze. I'd seen it a lot but never purchased it and can't believe that gem was hiding on me. I just love it. Everyone go try it!

6. A drugstore product that is overpriced?

Some foundations, I actually saw one at CVS for TWENTY dollars and I couldn't believe it. I know CVS tends to be a bit more expensive but still. I've seen a few eyeliners and mascaras too for around 11-13 dollars and I think that's crazy for drugstore.

7. Show your best drugstore dupe(s)!!

So this is more of just a color dupe, but the Fergie for Wet n Wild Lipstick in Pentouse Sweet is the exact same color as Kat Von D Everlasting Love Liquid Lipstick in Backstage Bambi. The KVD Liquid Lipstick is a completely different formula with incredible staying power and Penthouse Sweet is just a regular lipstick. BUT when I want a hot pink lipstick but don't want to waste my precious Kat Von D, I use the Wet n wild

Pentouse Sweet is left picture, middle swatch. Backstage Bambi on right.

8. Drugstore product that isn't worth the hype?

Im not a fan of Covergirl Lashblast, I know a lot of people like that. The brush is just too big for my eyeballs. I also didn't enjoy Revlon Soft Nude lipstick, it looked bad on me :(

This was a fun tag to do :) I love drugstore products and as you can see I've found a lot of favorites! I'm tagging anyone who wants to do this! Tomorrow I'll be back with a makeup brush post, so stay tuned for that! I hoped you liked this tag, and maybe try out some of the products I mentioned :) ps. Follow me on twitter @neenersmakeup I've been tweeting a lot more!

Thanks for reading!!
