I used to be an avid Mac user, for all things makeup–related, until a friend turned me on to Wet n Wild Photo Focus Foundation. Yes, I said Wet n Wild! This is easily the best foundation I have ever used and I will never use Mac for my foundation again! This foundation is full coverage yet super light, with an all–day hold. The best part about it, it’s only $6!
I have extremely blond hair, so if I don’t put my eyebrows on I look like someone shaved my whole face. That being said, I used to use Mac (surprise) Brow Duo to fill in my eyebrows, but, every once in a while, I will buy a cheap, random product – just for fun – and this time was a win! Elf has an Eyebrow Kit for just $3 and it is a perfect combination of gel and powder! I like it because it is not just a powder but has a darker gel base that makes the color stay longer. Also, the powder goes on top so it has a natural feel.
I think we’ve all had that problem with eyeliner where it ends up on the top of your lid like you drew an extra line up there for no reason. Well, I found a cheapie that doesn’t do that! I used to be obsessed with Kat Von D Tattoo eyeliner but I have now switched to L’Oreal Paris Cosmetics Infallible Super Slim Liquid Eyeliner. They are exactly the same, except one is $20 and the other is $14!
This one isn’t exactly a Drugstore Beauty Buy, but if you are a makeup junkie like me, the best money you could spend is on an Ipsy membership. It’s $10 a month and each month you get sample sizes (usually full sizes) of 5 beauty products, that come in a cute little bag. You can customize your profile to the type of items you would like to receive and what colors/shades you like best. This is a great way to try new products that you’ve always wanted to try, but for a minimal fee.
