Hello fellow Beautykins,
Yes, I just called y'all "Beautykins". I thought I'd give you a cute name. Anyways, welcome to part 2 of my top drugstore products. Today we will talk about eyes, lips and nails. The drug store has a plethora of these types of products, from shadows to eyeliners, mascaras to lash fibers, lipsticks to lip glosses and top coats to gel kits. The drugstore is like the cheap Sephora these days, and less cray cray. So, let's begin, shall we...
This is a pot of gel liner that really grips to your lids. I am all about lasting power because, in the summer I am a huge face sweater (which I have probably mentioned before) and anything that lasts is a keeper in my books. When I first used this product I noticed that lasting power right away. i was at work all day and I looked in the mirror and saw that I still had a line, I was amazed! I had never found a liner that lasted so well before. $3 CAD.
2. Maybelline Master Precise
This is the best eyeliner for a precise line! When they say 'Master Precise' they aren't lying. The tapered tip on this shadow is crazy sharp. It creates a super clean line every time. It does claim to last for 12 hours but I can usually get about 5 hours of super-black wear. $11 CAD.
3.Rimmel Scandal Eyes Liner in Nude
I really enjoy this eyeliner for rimming the waterline to create a wide awake eye. This is a little less stark than white (I still use white) but works just as well. $6 CAD.
Eyeshadow1. Maybelline Color Tattoo
I own several of these and I constantly buy more. These come in an array of different colors and they last like crazy. This guys last me all day and I usually get about 12 hours of wear from these guys. Some of my favorite colors include Pomegranate Punk, Tough as Taupe and Bad to the bronze. These blend super well, even with just a clean fingertip. Check out my full review here. $7 CAD.
2. Essence Eyeshadow
These little rounds are cheap but super pigmented. They work and last the best with the Essence eyeshadow base. They come in mostly metallic shades. $2 CAD.
Mascara1. L'Oreal Voluminous Mascara in Carbon Black
This mascara has been on drugstore shelves for a long time and continues to deliver the intensity of a high end mascara. The tube is not esthetically eye catching but when I was recommended this by a makeup artist friend, I was wondering why I had bypassed this all these years. This mascara offers super volume and length with a intense black finish. $7 CAD.
2. Esssence I love Extreme Crazy Volume
A thick wand, super tiny bristles but crazy length and volume. The formula is nice and wet, but not too wet, just right. $4 CAD.
3. Covergirl Lash Blast
Another classic that I am sure will be around for years to come. This product features a thick brush with small rubber bristles. This brush has alot to do with the volume this product creates. $10 CAD.
Lipsticks1. Maybelline Color Sensational Lipsticks
I love all the lipsticks I have tried from the line of products, I particularly love the 'Vivids' line. They have many bright shades that are perfect for the spring and summer. These are super pigmented and last for a good few hours on the lips. Check out my full review here. $7 CAD.
2. Revlon Matte Balms
The Revlon Matte Balms are the best of both worlds. Bright, vivid matte color with no drying of the lips. They have a light minty flavor and go on smoothly. They aren't great when it comes to lasting power but just pop these in your purse for a lip balm that has been kicked up a notch. Check out my full review here. $8 CAD.
3. Revlon Lip Butters
I absolutely LOVE these lip butters!! I wear one most every single day. They are nicely pigmented and give the lips a soft buttery texture. $5 CAD.
Nail Polish1. Essie Polish
Have you seen the marketing for these polishes? That is defiantly part of the hype of these polishes. They also feature an amazing color line. They carry pretty much every color of the rainbow. They also apply nicely and last for a fair amount of time. $8 CAD.
2. Sally Hensen Extreme Wear
These polishes are bright and colorful and last forever. When they say extreme wear they aren't kidding. These last on your nails for days. I rarely get a chip when I wear this polish. $3 CAD.
3. Essense Color 'n' Go
There aren't many colors in this line but what they do have are worth every penny (if not more). These feature a wide brush that glides over my nails perfectly and give me a perfect polish every time. They also dry very quickly and give off a high gloss shine. $2 CAD.
