Pre career-change (and subsequent reduced income), I loved high-end makeup and the only drugstore cosmetic I regularly purchased was Maybelline Great Lash mascara. But now I regularly discover the joys of drugstore makeup and only occasionally splurge on something from the higher-end lines. (And it's perfectly fine, actually!)
Here are three recent everyday favorites from my makeup bag:
1. CVS Oil Absorbing Sheets - approx. $5.00
Blot one over your forehead, nose and chin for a fresh, powdery look to your skin without caking on more powder!
2. L'Oreal Color Riche Balm in "Rose Elixir" - approx. $9
It's moisturizing, has SPF 15 and is lightly tinted the prettiest, most natural pink color. The texture is perfect. I love everything about it!
3. Maybelline Volum' Express "The Rocket" Mascara in Waterproof Very Black - Approx. $8
Has a great brush and a great formula that doesn't smudge even through tears and in pouring rain!
