FAVORITE PRIMERGARNIER 5 SECOND BLUR INSTANT SMOOTHER
Garnier 5 Second Blur Instant Smoother
Why I love it?Pore Blurring effect
It has a matte finish with a decent oil control,has good results for minimizing pores and improving skin texture, a task which very few drugstore primers can perform.
FAVORITE FOUNDATIONLOREAL INFALLIABLE
Why I love it? Oil Control
This product has certainly does deserves all the applause it got this year all around. Even from drugstore it can beat many high ends.The texture of this foundation is liquid and thick.Blends into your skin really nice.In terms of coverage, it's definitely medium, however you can build it up to full coverage! The finish is matte! infact very matte.Oily skin girls try out this one.
FAVORITE CONCEALERMAYBELLINE INSTANT AGE REWIND ERASER
Why I love it? Full coverage,brightening
Consistency is light liquid with almost full coverage, doesn't Creases unless you over do it.Works amazingly for under eye concealing and highlights.and works equally effective over blemishes.The sponge tip and turn tube makes it perfect for even blending.Suitable for all skin types.
FAVORITE BB CREAMMAYBELLINE DREAM PURE BB CREAM
Why I love it? Evens out skin
The BB cream is a very sheer coverage. It helps smooth and evening out dull or pink patches of skin. It’s obviously not meant to be as thick as foundation.Good coverage nice natural dewy finish and doesn't feel heavy.It does help minimize pores and conceal small blemishes.Decent Oil control combined with powder it works better.
FAVORITE POWDERMAYBELLINE FIT ME MATTE AND PORELESS
Why I love it? Full Coverage
FAVORITE BLUSHERSLEEK LIFE'S A PEACH -MATTE
Why I love it? Perfect Coral shade
I love Coral blushers they compliment my skin tone a lot.This one made to my fav. again this year.It’s a very pigmented, matte shade but it looks great on paler and darker skins due to the warm peachy tone running through and it can be blended to perfection on any skin tone.
FAVORITE BRONZERTHE BODY SHOP HONEY BRONZING POWDER
Why I love it? Subtle warmth
It allows me to add a sweep of color across my whole face and as it’s a completely matte product it looks lovely and natural. It doesn't give an orangey tone like some bronzers do.The pigmentation for the bronzer is build-able to your liking. I personally use this bronzer under my cheekbones, along my temple and jaw, this gives the face a more sculpted look and a healthy bronze effect.
FAVORITE CONTOUR KITMAYBELLINE MASTER SCULPT -MEDIUM
Why I love it?Compact,and perfect shade
The contour color is surprisingly great. think the price is perfect for good quality, easily blend-able and effective contouring. Proving to all the high end brands that that glamorous world of contouring can be done on a budget!,It's subtle but build-able, making it perfect for everyday use.
FAVORITE HIGHLIGHTERNYX ILLLUMINATOR POWDER - Ritualistic
Why I love it? Subtle Gold Sheen
Ritualistic, is a pale gold color. Texture is soft and pigmented.Its very similar to the popular Becca highlighter in Moonstone. This color looks great as a highlight on the cheekbones and also really pretty as an eyeshadow. A little goes a long way ,when applied just right and the light hits the highlighter, it gives a really pretty glow
FAVORITE SETTING SPRAYL'OREAL INFALLIABLE PRO SPRAY
Why I love it? Decent oil control
It has a nice clean, soft scent and comes out in a very micro-fine mist not as fine as Urban Decay sprays. There’s no sticky or heavy feeling, it doesn’t drench the face and dries pretty fast,with a decent staying power.
FAVORITE EYEBROW PRODUCTNYX TAME & FRAME POMADE
Why I love it? Pigmentation
Nyx Tame & Frame is a good option of pomades alternative in drugstore for filling up sparse eyebrows. The texture is a lot creamy compared to ABH Dip Brow,which makes it vulnerable for applying more than needed. The finish is demi matte,sets in easily though you cant layer it. its sweatproof and lasts a decent time.
FAVORITE EYELINERNYX BLACK LIQUID LINER
Why I love it? Color Intensity
I can easily draw thin / thick lines as the thin applicator is really easy to use. In just one swipe on the eye lid I get a pretty dark black line. Dries to a matte finish with good staying power. Does not smudge on oily lids and it doesnt budge!
FAVORITE EYEPENCILRIMMEL SCANDAL EYES PENCIL EYELINER
Why I love it? Creamy
My favorite part about this eyeliner is how creamy it is.It's very black though, and it stays for a decent period of time .This is a good dupe for Urban Decay's 24/7 liner! Very black, soft, glides on easily, and pretty waterproof. I though experience a little transfer from time to time, over my oily eyelids.
Why I love it? Adds length
This is relatively new mascara and I absolutely love it! I love the effect it gives me. Long wispy lashes with a bit of volume and not too clumpy. Plus I love that the bristles are longer on one side, making it easier for me to coat my lower lashes. This takes a little bit more effort to remove but nothing that my Shu Uemura cleansing oil can't do.
FAVORITE EYEPRIMERWet N Wild FERGIE TAKE ON THE DAY
Why I love it? Doesn't creases.
The primer sets quickly. It's very good for intensifying, and it's not difficult to blend if you give it 30 seconds or so to dry before you apply your eye shadow. It's translucent, almost invisible, though some pale color might show up on dark skin. no creasing or fading around 4-5 hours. It really, really keeps things in place.
FAVORITE EYE PALETTESLEEK EYE SHADOW PALETTE - STORM
Why I love it? Pigmentation
As most of you know that in drugstore I love sleek palettes,they are far by most pigmented drugstore eye shadows. Storm palette has been a staple for a while it has all shimmers from golds to greys. The eye shadows are high pigmented.They apply and blend super easy.Have a good lasting power and doesn't crease.
FAVORITE LIPSTICKNYX MATTE LIPSTICK - ALABAMA
Why I love it? Intense Color
Alabama is a "brick red" . To be it's a very interesting color as it's really deep, so in some lights it can appear to be a deep dark red. It goes on very smoothly and velvety.I'd suggest using a lip liner underneath if you want to make the lines absolutely perfect and making it even more longer lasting. Though it's a Matte there's still a sheen to it, and it's really a full-bodied dynamic color I'd recommend.
FAVORITE LIP BALMREVLON COLOURBURST MATTE BALM
Why I love it? Easy to wear
The Colourburst Matte Balms are definitely worth checking out .This matte balm glides on the lips like a dream. It is really smooth and velvety. And it is not drying! The colors pack some serious punch.Fair or medium skinned girls looking for an everyday pink color should definitely lay their hands on Elusive ! It has a great pigmentation, lasts for a decent time, and has a nice formula.
FAVORITE LIPLINERNYX PENCIL- NATURAL
Why I love it? Full Coverage
This lip liner is a neutral versatile color. It has a smoother application, creamy texture, doesn't crease, and stays put. Blends with all most nude lipsticks. All round a good product!
