latest drugstore beauty faves

Like any proper Southern woman, it's rare for me to leave the house without wearing makeup. 

Like any thrifty Southern woman, it's rare for me to leave the house wearing expensive makeup. 

I appreciate a great deal for anything, but ESPECIALLY makeup. I wear it and I wear it often. So I don't like paying a whole lot for it, you know?

Here are some drugstore makeup faves I'm crushing on right now...

//1. NYC High Definition Volume Mascara. 
As a life-long fan of the beloved pink and green mascara, I was skeptical to try this one. Let me tell y'all I'm now a HUGE fan. I've even won over my mascara-lovin' sister as well!

//2. Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer.
I thought the color wouldn't be very saturated because it said "shimmer" and I was happily wrong in that assumption. For a shimmer balm the color is nicely saturated with a bit of shimmer and Burt's all-natural formulas.

//3. Rimmel London Soft Kohl Kajal Eyeliner Pencil.
This is a great pencil. It can do a great sharp line or smudge for a smoky eye. At less than $5, it's a definite steal!!

//4. Maybelline Dream Fresh Beauty Balm.
This is great for those days that you don't want a full face of makeup, but a little something to smooth everything out. This is for what I'd call a "grocery store" face. :)

//5. Wet n Wild Mega Glo Illuminating Powder.
All of the colors swirl together for a believable, natural flush with a hint of shimmer. I really love this stuff.

//6. Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadow.
While this definitely doesn't last 24 hours like the packaging claims, it does produce a fairly saturated hue that lasts well over 8 hours without any sort of primer. Plus, the creamy texture doesn't get little powder flakes in your eyes. Win win!

Do you have any drugstore beauty favorites?

Happy Friday, lovelies!

  1. I love Burt's Bees anything, but the lip shimmer is awesome.

    I've used the Rimmel eyeliner, and it's great, until you have to sharpen it. Then the color part breaks off and I get cranky!

    Happy Friday!


Comments make me SO happy! Go ahead...make my day. ;)
