5 Drugstore Makeup Steals

I thought my life was just about over when I realized I forgot my makeup bag at home only while on a weekend getaway.  I know we’ve probably all done this before but this was a first timer for me!  I actually started contemplating whether I was going to wash my face for the entire weekend.  (No, I would NEVER recommend that but in my crazy state of mind I was actually thinking that way!)


I decided I needed to get my teary eyed self up and make my way to the nearest drugstore. Confused and feeling helpless, I started rummaging through the cosmetics section trying to figure out what I needed.  I came out of there knowing I was being completely over dramatic. I was in fact going to live!  After all, some makeup is better than NO makeup!  Turns out, I found some products that I liked! I’ve realized people give drugstore makeup a bad rep.  I’m not saying all drugstore makeup is mind-blowing but there are some products that are just as good.  Here are some that I picked up that weekend and would pick up again.


Top 5 Drugstore steals:

  1. L’Oreal True Match Lumi Foundation
  2. Maybelline Gel Liner
  3. NYX Butter Gloss
  4. Milani Baked Powder Blush
  5. L’Oreal Voluminous Mascara in Carbon Black
