Since my last drug store beauty raid, you gorgeous recessionistas have been clamoring for more! And since I practically live at Target anyway, here is your second dose of fabulous, affordable beauty finds:
Revlon Custom Creations Foundation: If you’re an avid fake n’ baker, this is the foundation for you. With five colors to choose from in one bottle, you can match your skin tone perfectly even if you’re between tanning sessions. The coverage is about a medium, and its really breathable so it doesn’t feel like you’re wearing a mask. The one downside is they don’t offer many options for those with darker skin tones, which I found disappointing. My skin is about a medium tan, and I had to use their darkest offering, Deep. I do however love the fact that it has SPF 15, which is vital if you like the sun. Or just, you know, go outside on a regular basis.
Maybelline VolumeXLSeduction Lip Plumper: For a drugstore brand, this stuff plumps amazingly well. I applied this over a primer and lipliner, and it still started tingling the second it touched my lips. I love the formula too because it’s sheer, super moisturizing and not sticky.
Revlon Colorstay Clear Lipliner: I’ve been on this clear lipliner kick lately because it offers all the benefits of a liner without altering the color of your lipstick or gloss, so I was excited to find this. I’ve been using Urban Decays clear lip liner – Ozone – for the past few weeks and love it, but this one is just as good, and costs half as much.
Rolly LipSmacker: I squeal at the sight of any new LipSmackers product, but this one sent me into a girly fueled frenzy. The package includes two glosses, one sheer and one sparkly – each in their own adorable little roller. What really got me excited though is how those crafty folks over at Bonne Bell managed to be innovative with something as simple as lip gloss. What’s so innovative about it you ask? Unlike other rollers which are made of plastic, this one is made of metal and feels suuuuuper good when it touches your lips. I haven’t stopped gliding this stuff on since I opened the package two hours ago. And don’t even get me started on the scent. Mmmm watermelon…
And there ya have it kids! Learn it. Know it. Live it.
