Let's shake it up in here. We all love luxury brands, but what about our drugstore faves?

I thought it would be nice to shine a little light on our favorite drugstores products. We talk a lot about luxury brands. So I thought this would be fun to explore and see what other people use from there.

 

Mine is:

 

1. Got2b Smooth Operator Smoothing Lustre Lotion

2. Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock 45

3. Almay Liquid Eyeliner

4. Neutrogena Healthy Skin Smoothing Stick (concealer)

5. EcoTools brushes

6. Tresemme Split Remedy Leave in Split End Conditioning Treatment

Re: Let's shake it up in here. We all love luxury brands, but what about our drugstore faves?

1. Cetaphil daily facial cleanser

2. Covergirl clear mascara

3. Yes to cucumbers facial towelettes

4. L'Oreal true match blush

5. Maybelline baby lips lip balm - any color!!

6. Most of my hair products

Re: Let's shake it up in here. We all love luxury brands, but what about our drugstore faves?

I've kinda thought about trying baby lips off and on. People seem to really like the product! Since I have laid off lipstick a lot more I tend to reach for colored lip balms and lip stains instead.

Re: Let's shake it up in here. We all love luxury brands, but what about our drugstore faves?

Go for it! I also love Revlon lip butter in fig jam...very polished and pretty with just mascara or a nice warm nude eye.

Re: Let's shake it up in here. We all love luxury brands, but what about our drugstore faves?

another one I've been hearing about a lot (revlon lip butters)! Yeah I'll probably crack down and buy these things when I finish off a lot more products. I'm currently on the project 10 pan scenario. From working in cosmetics to being obsessed with them my makeup collection is way too large. I tossed half of my collection out and I still got a lot of stuff left. You should of seen it, it was like an episode of hoarders. Me like holding to the stuff for dear life, trying to convince myself not to go through with it, mourning for it, and then eventually able to toss it, all one product at a time. lol as you imagine it took awhile. xD It was really embarassing

Re: Let's shake it up in here. We all love luxury brands, but what about our drugstore faves?

They are moisturizing and add a hint of color. I love them and for the price, they are definitely worth a try.

Re: Let's shake it up in here. We all love luxury brands, but what about our drugstore faves?

1. Maybelline color tattoos

2. Milani Color Statement lipsticks

3. Loreal lineur intense liner in carbon

4. Wet n Wild trio or six pan palettes

Re: Let's shake it up in here. We all love luxury brands, but what about our drugstore faves?

oooh fun!

 

1) Aveeno skin brightening cleanser....takes all your makeup off e first time, EVERYTIME!

 

2)Maybelline Baby lips....seriously the ONLY lip balm I will buy again

 

3) Maybelline Fit Me foundation....If you are looking for that"this is my skin" look that can build from light to med coverage than this is your schtick on a budget. I have both Mac face and body and this foundation....can't tell a difference....but my wallet does!!

 

4) Rimmel ScandalEyes eyeliners...Super pigmented, incredibly easy to apply...glides like butter, smudges nicely to smokey and will NOT come off...break out the eye makeup remover...it is seriously in for the long haul.

 

5) Rimmel Fast Drying nail polish...can't think of its proper name but this polish takes a beating from me and refuses to chip or go away!! Another Rimmel product that requires removal LOL

 

 

 

Re: Let's shake it up in here. We all love luxury brands, but what about our drugstore faves?

I just got one of the Rimmel Scandal Eyes in Nude today. First one so I hope I love it because I've heard so much. Sadly my walmart didn't have the light blue one which I heard makes your eyes pop ^_^

Re: Let's shake it up in here. We all love luxury brands, but what about our drugstore faves?

I have all but the nude! The blue is super nice...when you find it, buy it!

Re: Let's shake it up in here. We all love luxury brands, but what about our drugstore faves?

Will do ^_^

Re: Let's shake it up in here. We all love luxury brands, but what about our drugstore faves?

ok you guys got me curious about this Rimmel ScandalEyes! I'm looking this up online right now! lol

Re: Let's shake it up in here. We all love luxury brands, but what about our drugstore faves?

I've been really pleased with NYX's Round Lipsticks -- the color range is pretty impressive and they're not drying in the least.  I've a similar addiction to Revlon Lip Butters.  And I love the finish of the L'Oreal Lumi foundation, making it so painful that their lightest shade is a hint too dark for me.  Even so, I blend it down my neck to compensate.  I can't think of another foundation I've tried that I've liked enough to put up with a color mismatch.

 

For skincare I'm a huge fan of the Burt's Bees range.  If they came out with a glycolic facial cleanser tomorrow I'd be sorely tempted to break up with Anthony Logistics.  Their acne cleanser was the first such drugstore product that made my skin look healthy instead of too dry to produce pimples, and now that my skin's a little drier their Intense Hydration Cream Cleanser has been a twice-a-week savior.

Re: Let's shake it up in here. We all love luxury brands, but what about our drugstore faves?

1. Revlon's Super Lustrous Lipstick.  With ULTA having buy 2 get 1 free, I was pretty happy. 

2. Herbal Essence Shampoo and conditioner

3. Q-Tips... for EVERYTHING! 

4. Vaseline.  I use this for my lips @ night. (After all, all lip balms in the end are petroleum jelly based.)

 

Re: Let's shake it up in here. We all love luxury brands, but what about our drugstore faves?

vaseline!! Yes....wonderful.

Wet N Wild Eyeshadows

Re: Let's shake it up in here. We all love luxury brands, but what about our drugstore faves?

Apparently people are really feeling the wet n wild eyeshadows lately. They must of stepped up their game.

Re: Let's shake it up in here. We all love luxury brands, but what about our drugstore faves?

Yeah their eyeshadows have been great lately and their new nailpolishs are good too. It doesn't hurt to try since they're so cheap ^_^

Re: Let's shake it up in here. We all love luxury brands, but what about our drugstore faves?

Re: Let's shake it up in here. We all love luxury brands, but what about our drugstore faves?

I have a lot of drugstore finds- here are my recent faves:

Eyes:

☆ Elf brow kit in medium

☆ Maybelline Lash discovery mini brush water proof mascara (for lashes under my eyes- tiny brush and since it is waterproof no smudging)

☆ Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips eyeliners in Nude (NOT the khol liner)

☆ Wet and Wild Color Icon Trios and 8 pan palettes (comfort zone)

☆ Rimmel Scandal Eyes in Nude (for inner rim)

 

Some people rave about Jordana Fabuliner but this didnt work for me- it smudged all over my eyes while my Lorac & sephora brands stay put for a while.

 

Blush/Bronzers-

☆ Elf blush in candid coral

☆ Wet and Wild Blush in Pearlescent Pink

☆ Elf small stippling brush- LOVE THIS!

☆ NYC bronzer in Sunny

☆ Wet & Wild "bronzer" in Reserve Your Cabana (this is so light on me I sometimes use it to set my foundation!) 

 

Foundations-

☆ Revlon Nearly Naked Liquid Foundation

☆ Loreal True Match Liquid Foundation and Pressed Powder

☆ Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in Translucent

☆ Elf Studio HD finishing powder

 

Under eye Concealers-

☆ Maybelline Dream Lumi concealer in radient
☆ Garnier Anti-dark-circle roller - sheer tint

 

Spot/Blemish Concealer-

☆Physicians Formula Concealer RX

☆ Hard Candy Glamoflauge - these run really light. I am a Light Medium in this 

 

Lips-

I just tried Rimmel Moisture Renew in Pink Chic yesterday and today and havent had any reactions yet & the color is nice.  I had a moderate reaction to Revlon Super Lustrous so i dont like that brand for my lips.

If you already have length to your lashes and crave the most dramatic volume look no further than your local drugstore for the blackest of black phat lashes for 7 bucks!

L'Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black Mascara


Thanks to @lylysa for this recommendation, it saved my dry legs last winter. Great for sensitive skin, has no fragrance

CeraVe Lotion

I can't say anything negative about this root lifter. I'm a hair product junkie for VOLUME (the southern belle coming out in me) The pump lightly mists a wide range of spray to the roots. No sticky residue left afterwards and it's organic! Make sure to blow dry hair afterwards with round brush for maxed out of this world lift!

MOP Lemongrass Lift

Re: Let's shake it up in here. We all love luxury brands, but what about our drugstore faves?

I've been looking for a good root lifter moderately priced of course because I'm a newbie and wanna play around with it to get the hang of the best way to get results. Where do you buy it at?

Re: Let's shake it up in here. We all love luxury brands, but what about our drugstore faves?

Walgreens (some), but I get mine from drugstore dot com
