Favorites: Drug Store Edition

I feel like I don't do enough drug store posts for you lovelies and I know that some of you are on a tight budget or are single mothers that may not get help. So this one's for you! This is going to be just drug store makeup so I hope you enjoy!

*Take note that Walmart prices are cheaper than Ulta prices, so be sure to check there for a product first before heading over to Ulta!


NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk (Ulta $4.49)
In my previous post that talks about makeup struggles, I talked about my struggle with eyeshadow and someone recommended this product to me. I have an issue with my eyeshadow actually showing up. I feel like I can pack on the color for dayyyys and it still won't look like I have any eyeshadow on. This baby definitely helps with that issue. Put this on before your eyeshadow and it almost acts as a primer, only better. It really intensifies your shadows.
 NYX HD Photogenic Concealer (Ulta $4.99)
This was my holy grail concealer for the longest time and I see myself going back to it once I finish the concealer that I've been using. It has great coverage, it's creamy, and it's affordable. What more could you want in a concealer? The only issue I had with this is that it didn't last very long.
NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams (Ulta $5.99)
There is a variety of gorgeous colors in these liquid to matte lip creams. They're almost like the affordable version of all these liquid lipsticks coming out. Some people claim they're too drying, but the solution with that is just applying lip balm on prior to applying them!
NYX Butter Glosses (Ulta $4.99)
These babies are like the sister to the soft matte lip creams. They're pigmented and smooth and come in a variety of colors. NYX recently came out with new intense butter glosses which are exactly that - intense. You can find swatches in my New From NYX post!
NYX Pore Filler Primer (Ulta $13.99)
I actually bought this quite awhile ago and I don't remember it being $13.99 because that seems a bit high for a drug store brand to me. But regardless, I love this stuff. It's like a dupe for Benefit's Porefessional that everyone raves about.

NYX Illuminator in Ritualistic (Ulta $8.99)
This highlighter is gorgeous! Super pigmented and just all around beautiful. I think this is definitely a product more for fair skin and it almost reminds me of a dupe for Becca Moonstone. This was my go-to for such a long time and it's never let me down!
NYX Round Lipstick in Thalia (Ulta $3.99)
I actually saw this on Pinterest awhile ago and finally decided to go out on a whim and pick it up a few months ago and I cannot put this lipstick down. This right here is my holy grail and I am constantly reaching for it. The color is really hard to describe but I'll attempt to. It's like a nude, pink, mauve-y color. Purrrrrfection! The image looks more pink than anything, but I promise it's not.
---------------------------------------------------------- Can everyone tell I love NYX yet? Lol.

Maybelline Dream Pure BB Cream 8-in-1 (Walmart $7.44 , Ulta $8.99)
I don't wear BB creams too often just because I really like full coverage, but this gives me enough coverage and it has many benefits and it claims to clear your skin plus it is oil free. The 8 benefits this product claims to have is: clear acne, conceal imperfections, minimize look of pores, reduce appearance of redness, adjust to skin tone, hydrate, smooth, enhance skin
Maybelline Baby Skin Primer (Walmart $5.94, Ulta $6.99)
This is another product everyone is always talking about. I don't have much to say about it other than it does it's job!
Maybelline Super Stay 14 Hour Lipstick in Wine & Forever (Walmart $6.94, Ulta $8.99)
I know the image makes it look a little more on the brown side, but if you know me, you would know I'm not a fan of any lipsticks that have any kind of brown undertone. In person, I promise this is more of a deep red, wine, burgundy color. It's just gorgeous, especially for fall. I'm not sure about the 14 hour claim because I've never worn it for that long, but it's still a beautiful color for a great price.

Maybelline Matte Lipsticks in Divine Wine and Lust for Blush (Walmart $5.50 each, Ulta $7.99 each)
These matte lippies from Maybelline were a huge hit and were sold out pretty much everywhere! Thankfully I got my hands on the two that I wanted and I'm so glad I did. Divine Wine is another deep wine color that is great for fall and Lust For Blush is a gorgeous pinky-mauve color that is works for an everyday color.
Maybelline Fit Me Foundation Stick (I usually use this for cream contouring) (Walmart $6.94, Ulta $8.99)
I truthfully didn't expect to like this product, but honestly it is perfect for cream contouring. It is very blendable and the stick makes it easy to make the lines for your contour.
---------------------------------------------------------- Apparently I like Maybelline too? Haha

Hard Candy Glamoflauge Concealer (Walmart $6)
I know the package says "heavy duty" but girrrrrrl, let me tell you heavy duty is a perfect description for this concealer. You want redness, blemishes, scars, even tattoos gone? This is the stuff to use! This is what I've been using pretty much every day since I got it and what I've learned is that a little bit of this goes a long way. I'm talking like two dots will cover your entire face. Don't believe me? Try it!

ELF Baked Highlighter in Moonlight Pearls (I couldn't find this product in their online inventory)
Normally e.l.f. products run between $1 - $5 so I can't imagine this being any more than that. This is a very pretty champagne, pearl highlighter
Neutrogena Shine Control Foundation (Ulta $13.99)
This was actually the first liquid foundation I ever tried and I fell in love. It's oil free, it lasts, and it's just a great foundation for me. I don't hear too many people talking about it, though and I feel like they should be.

Neutrogena Shine Control Powder (Ulta $12.99)
I first tried this product and I could've swore it looked like I had flour or to be extreme, cocaine, on my face. It looked like I just had white on my face. Needless to say, I tried applying it with a brush instead of the applicator that comes with it and I loved it. It sets my makeup flawlessly and it stays all day.

L'Oreal Voluminous Mascara (Walmart $5.84, Ulta $7.99)
Hands down, my holy grail mascara. I've heard people talking about the Voluminous Carbon Black mascara that I'm wanting to try to compare the two, but until then, this is my baby. It separates my lashes, doesn't clump, and makes them look full. BANG!
L'Oreal True Match Foundation (Walmart $6.42 - $8.97 , Ulta $9.99)
I tried this foundation because of a few referrals and when I first tried it, I hated it. I absolutely hated it. I tried it a second time and I still didn't like it. Then I ran out of my favorite foundation (Neutrogena Shine Control) and I had to use this since it was the only thing sitting in my drawer at the time. Now I use the True Match daily and I'm almost out! I get just enough coverage and it doesn't make me oily.

Revlon Lipstick in Honey Bare (Walmart $4.97 , Ulta $7.99)
If I'm looking for a nude lip, this is the color I grab for. It's just the perfect everyday nude. No other words needed!

What are your holy grails or favorites from the drugstore?!
