I’ve had this idea for a while so this week I’m going to share a series of posts featuring my favorite products from different drugstore and high end brands! It’s overwhelming because everyone does mascara or lipstick but which ones are the mascaras and lipsticks?! Drugstore is cheaper obvi and it’s hit or miss most of the time but trust me the hits are worth it!
Part 1 today will be my Maybelline and Pixi beauty favorites! I also just did this post on the best drugstore makeup, here.
Starting off with the Master Chrome highlighter. I love this stuff, it rivals my high end highlighters and its one of best drug store highlights on the market!
Maybelline age rewind concealer. I’m already on my 2nd one! Love this stuff and you can control the coverage of the concealer based on how much you turn the dial on the sponge. I keep mine pretty low coverage and just use whats on the sponge!
Rocket volume waterproof mascara. I literally just got this and have used it once. In that one time I’ve discovered I love its so good and deserves to be talked about. This adds really nice volume and length! Its also waterproof but it comes off pretty easily. I die for my Loreal Lash Paradise but the waterproof version is indestructible and you have to sacrifice some lashes to remove it all. Not the case here but it still does the job and stays in place! So far I’m really into it.
Maybelline Hot Vivid Laquer. This is the most pigmented glossy lip! It’s super easy to wear on its own or layered with other lippies.
Maybelline color tattoo eyeshadow. I love eyeshadow pots that you can swipe on with your fingers. This will last all day and I have extremely oily eyelids so that says a lot. This is the color ‘bad to the bronze’ and one swipe is the easiest, lazy smokey eye. I love it.
Maybelline lipstick. I love the shades of nudes they offer! The lipsticks are creamy, comfy mattes and I reach for them often because they’re so easy and good.
Pixi duo blush. I use this as a highlighter more so than a blush. I love how smooth it is! You can apply it with a brush or your fingers. I wouldn’t say its a cream but it sort of reminds me of the Colourpop super shock highlighters because it’s that pigmented when applied with fingers. I got this in my September Ipsy and I’m obsessed!
Pixi glow tonic. I love this toner and my skin is definitely smoother and brighter after using it. I got the cutest baby version to try and will be getting the full sized when it’s done!
No’s? I tried the Pixi sunscreen setting spray and I wouldn’t recommend it. It’s not a setting spray but rather liquid sunscreen that comes out in little white squirts everywhere.
Check back later in the week for my brand favorites! Hint hint lots of Mac, Nars, tarte and skincare!
