I'm a huge fan of high end beauty products... but more and more I'm finding that there are so many drugstore products that are equally amazing! In fact, i have quite the list of drugstore holy grail products! I've been shopping CVS since i was in my early teens. Growing you, i had one two blocks away and i still remember the feeling of walking down the beauty aisle and peeking at the array of nail polish colors or lippie options. I'd always toss a few beauties in my shopping basket followed by a magazine or two. This was my way to unwind from a long day. To be honest, it still is! I love beauty products and i adore reading magazines, so during my down time (oh who am i kidding, I'm always chasing my twinadoes around), i simply love to explore new beauty options and cozy up with a great magazine! OK so i totally just got side tracked with that flashback... but i kind of enjoyed it! Getting back to some drugstore products I'm really loving right now!
I recently purchased Milani's Bella Eyes Eye Shadows at my local CVS and fell madly in love! These shadows are insanely pigmented and could easily stand up to any of my favorite high end shadows! These are easily the best bang for your buck when it comes to shadows! I will be doing a full review on the ones i picked up along with a few more things but wanted to include them in this post because they are an absolute must have in my book! Years ago, i found myself spending so much money on high end mascaras! While there are a few that i still love, i have to say, I'm so blown away by several drugstore mascaras! There are two in particular that have completely wow'd me. CVS sent me L'Oreal's Butterfly Effects (although I'd already purchased myself and loved it) and it was love at first swipe! This mascara has such a way of separating lashes! On me, it creates the most beautiful feathered lash effect! It's just so different from any mascara I've ever tried! Another mascara i fell hard for was Revlon's Lash Potion. I was sent this mascara initially by Allure to use in my Beauty Blogger Awards challenges and i was completely smitten. This mascara will extend and voluminize your lashes! It's so so soooo good that i have since purchased several!
Are you looking for a great cleanser but don't want to break the bank? Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Cream Cleanser is a perfect option! I love that it's free of harsh chemicals, sulfates, parabens, dyes, etc. Really, this cleanser leaves my skin feeling clean and prepped for my skincare! L'Oreal's BB Magic is one of those products that i have purchased over and over again. It's light in coverage but really smooths out the skin. It feels very similar to Sarah McNamara's Skin Transformer! Yes! It's a great product for when i don't really want to do up your entire face and just want to keep it simple. I have recommended this to friends who've become equally smitten! Great product! Lastly, L'Oreal's Color Riche Extraordinaire Lipstick/gloss in Nude Ballet is absolutely, positively my favorite nude in the whole wide world! The texture and pigmentation of this product is incredible! This beauty can easily stand up to some of the most luxurious brands out there! Everyone needs to own it!
So these are just a few of the drugstore products I'm absolutely loving right now. Stop by your local CVS and check them out! So lets chat... what are some of your favorite drugstore favorites? I want to find more drugstore gems!!! Thank you so much for reading !
