I have some current high end faves, too, but I'll share those another day. For now, I wanted to talk about three drugstore products that I'm crazy about:
1. Revlon Photoready Airbrush Foundation: I've tried a ton of different foundations. And while I still have my high-end standbys (I'm lookin' at you, Dior Airflash!), this Revlon Photoready Airbrush is by far the best I've gotten from the drugstore. The only other contender, frankly, is the Revlon Colorstay Whipped--which I've just purchased recently after a million recommendations and already love.
I usually apply it with a foundation brush, but sometimes I shake it up and use the beauty blender. Either way, it goes on so smoothly, matches my skin like no other foundation ever has (I'm in 030 Nude--or at least that's my color when I don't have any tan), and has the dewiest, prettiest finish. I love it so much.
2. Maybelline Clean Express Classic Eye Makeup Remover: This is the best eye makeup remover I've used. I've tried all the major brands, various wipes (ew I hate that word), and even olive oil & coconut oil. This one works like magic, and I love how silky it makes the skin around my eyes.
3. NYC Liquid Lip Shine: I got one of these in an Influenster box and I loved it so much that I went out and bought another one in a different shade. To be perfectly honest, I've always been kinda skeptical about the super cheap brands. It took me years to try elf, I only tried Wet & Wild because Meg O. raved about it (and girl knows her makeup!), and I'd always walked right past NYC. But the lip gloss is really pretty spectacular. It smells amazing, the pigmentation is perfect (not too much, not too little), and they are only $2.49! Influenster sent me Nude York City, and I later purchased Rivington Rose. I love them both.
Tell me: what cheap products are you loving lately? Nothing I love more than beauty recommendations!
