My makeup collection is pretty eclectic these days. I will use a $3 blush and then a $45 eye shadow palette. I am, however, working to use up products before I buy new ones. I also try to only have available to myself what I know works and that I love. But, let’s face it – as a beauty junkie, I’ll never resist the chance to try new products! And, I justify this habit by primarily shopping at the drugstore. Drugstore makeup continues to blow me away. There are some products out there that rival, or are sometimes better than their high-end counterparts! I’m definitely in the mood to freshen things up for the remainder of the winter season, so it’s the perfect time to compile a drugstore beauty wish list.
My skin is going through a bit of a freak out, and I’m not entirely sure why. My skincare routine hasn’t changed, and I haven’t made any major changes to face makeup. I blame the dry winter air! No amount of moisturizer will hydrate my skin at the moment, so I have to try to work with what I have. That’s why I want to incorporate more cream products into my makeup routine.
The Beautifully Bare line from e.l.f. caught my eye at the store – the packaging is so pretty, and the cream blush looks like the perfect color to give your cheeks a subtle flush. Elle recently compared the Sonia Kashuk Creme Bronzer to the Chanel Soleil Bronzer, which sold me. It may not be an exact dupe, but it’s close enough. I like the price tag a lot better, too.
I’m also interested in the whole cushion compact craze. Have any of you tried cushion products? I just saw a YouTube beauty vlogger use the new Wet ‘n’ Wild cushion contour and was impressed with how natural it looked. My hope is that this will work for those “no makeup makeup” days!
