I recently saw a discussion in the Makeup section on LaurenConrad.com and I was like, "This would be a PERFECT post for my blog!" (Side note: I highly recommend signing up for LaurenConrad.com - You get tons of tips on fitness, beauty, and so many other things. I love it!)
The topic was "Favorite Drugstore Products" and that topic seemed like the perfect idea. I did change the topic a little bit to "Current Drugstore Favorites" because my favorites are always changing and I also thought I could post during other seasons when my preferences and needs change because of the weather. So without further ado, here are my Current Favorite Drugstore Products!
Going with the light makeup theme for summer, I'm very picky about my pressed powders. When I find an excellent BB cream, the last thing I want to do is find a powder that makes it look or feel like I caked on makeup! With this being said, my favorite pressed powder is the Rimmel London Stay Matte Pressed Powder in number 004, Sandstorm. I love this powder because it's matte so it gives a polished look and it's not too heavy. I just dust this powder over my makeup to set it and my makeup stays in place all day. The bottom line with this powder is that I love that it gives me a finished look without looking or feeling cakey! I again purchased this powder from Target and the cost is under $10.00.
Sometimes when I put the powder on, it covers the natural flush in my cheeks, but this is expected. Although I believe summer is the perfect time for bright colors, I prefer to keep my blush subtle so I can let other features shine. My current favorite blush is the Nyx Blush in number PB25, Pinched. It gives the right amount of pink for a laid back summer look and has just just enough shimmer without looking super pink and sparkly. I also purchased this blush at Target and it goes for under $8.00.
My first current favorite mascara is the Maybelline Rocket Volum' Express in Very Black. I love this mascara so much and I've been using it for a while now. It makes my lashes look so full and voluminous but doesn't get clumpy. I can also get away with using this on my bottom lashes, which I'm very picky about because I don't like my bottoms lashes too long, but this mascara just makes them look full and gives a nice look to my eyes overall. I purchased this mascara from Walgreens and it goes for around $8.00.
