Drugstore Makeup Haul

  Hello everyone! I recently picked up a few drugstore products that I've been wanting to try. I'm going to share my thoughts and opinions on them. I have been trying them out for a few weeks now so I'll tell you what I think of them so far.





  I really love this palette. The color selection is so unique. I especially love the shimmery gold and plum colors. This isn't a very natural, everyday palette but sometimes it's nice to switch things up and not have the same neutral shades. It's perfect if you're planning on going out or want more of a dramatic eye look. The shadows are very bold and pigmented. You barely have to tap into them. They are a little powdery but that's nothing a little tapping of the brush won't fix. They're super long lasting as well. I hate when you can't see your eyeshadow at the end of the day. You can create such beautiful eye looks with this palette. Highly recommend!


   I originally found out about this product through Madelaine Petsch. She said she loves this eyebrow kit in a few of her videos, so I really wanted to try it since she raved about it. It really is amazing. It's a very buildable product so you can make you eyebrows as natural or bold as you want which I find quite useful for different occasions. I use the gel (left side) then go in with the powder (right side) and it gives my eyebrows a little more shape and thickness. It's so great and so inexpensive. I have the shade medium.


  This liquid eyeliner is so easy to apply. For someone like me who doesn't wear eyeliner often and isn't as skilled at it, it glides on so easily over the upper lash line. If you're not very experienced at eyeliner I think this is a great option. It is metallic so essentially it's just a black color that's shiny and not matte. I have the shade in "Black Comet".  I really like the finish of it. It also is very easy to take off but it does crumble which I don't particularly like because it can get into your eyes.


  This is a setting spray so I use this after I finish applying all my makeup to set it all in place and to ensure my makeup doesn't budge the entire day. I haven't experienced any fading or smudging when I use this so I think it's working well so far. This is illuminating but it's very subtle. Sometimes illuminating products can make you look sweaty so I love that this doesn't do that. You don't look oily or sweaty but rather look very radiant and glowy.


  This lipstick is so creamy. I adore creamy lip products. They glide right over your lips and don't emphasis wrinkles or dry patches on them. Maybelline have some of the best lip products so it's no surprise to me that I like this. I am obsessed with this color. It's a plummy red color but leans more on the purple than red side. It's such a different color from any lip products I own. I usually go for light pink or nude shades. It's very long lasting and is a satin finish.

  Those are the products I picked up and have been testing out lately. Have you tried any of these products? What products do you want to try?

  3. I really want to try some Elf makeup out, I did try and get the eyebrow kit as I've heard a lot of people rave about it, but sadly I think the powders are too dark for me which is such a shame! Everyone has raved about those Maybelline sensational lipsticks, I've heard nothing but good things about the formula! xx
