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

So I've been seeing a lot rimmel stay matte do use the translucent or is there foundation ones as well? I'm curious as my face gets very oily and a translucent matte setting powder that works well is a plus in my book.

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

I have read differing opinions on this one.  I use translucent (I am a MAC NC20) and it seems to go on a little white but then fades into my skin. I dont use this as a foundation though, I use it to set my liquid foundation or to touch up throughout the day.  Some people say they fade into the skin & translucent is great for a lot of skin tones... other people say you should try to match your color.  I looked at all the colors they have at my local CVS and Walgreens and a lot of them look pinkish to me so thats why I chose translucent.

I never heard of la roche. What do you like about the brand?

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

They offer excellent fluid sunscreens-- I like the matte fluid for the face....absorbs easily, lightweight and not oily. The redermic retinol line is one of the best over the counter retinol--- recommended for sun damage, fine lines,premature aging or just to maintain younger looking skin. It is available in cvs and drugstore.com if you're interested ;-)

What do you like about the hard candy clamaflauge concealer?? I've seen it pop a good few times. Smiley Happy

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

It's comparable to Kat Von D's tattoo concealer.  It's heavy duty while being easily blendable, and not turning cakey.  Biggest selling factor...  it's $6!!!  The coloring is quite light, so you'll need to go up a shade or two :-). It's excellent to cover imperfections, especially if you're looking to use a light coverage foundation.

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

i wear light medium in glamoflauge. I had purchased the light and it was ghostly on my MAC NC20 skin.  I agree that it is comparable to KVD

i like the burts bees coconut foot cream too!

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

Have you tried the Burt's Bees hand cream at all?  Saw it in the store last night and found myself rather curious Smiley Tongue

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

Classic or Cherry Chapstick is wonderful, and with the price I kinda just stock up and place them everywhere because I know Ill lose them. 

I like covergirl face products, like their foundation, blush, and concealer, probably because its what my mom uses and she just introduced me to the brand when I first needed makeup for my 7th grade musical and I've been sharing her stuff since, her color foundation actually works great for my under eye darkness; I use it as a concealer.

I love ELF products as well, and Wet n' Wild eyeshadows are a hit and miss thing with me. Some are really pigmented, others leave much to be desired. 

 

~We are all beautiful~

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

i agree- some of the Wet & Wild eyeshadows are awesome! And some can be equated to side walk chalk. I've found their 8 pan palette, Comfort Zone to have a lot of great, smooth, pigmented options

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

I also agree! I only have one Wet & Wild Eyeshadow and it is amazing. The brown color is just the prettiest brown i have come across and i own many browns. It has the most amazing formula and works so well for me. I don't think i have ever worn it and not gotten a compliment. I bought it so long ago i don't even know if they still sell it. I hope so since i'm running low. 

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

I forgot to mention this one- I love the Revlon Super Shiny Nail Buffer. I don't go high-end for my nail tools, although I do for polishes.

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

Equal love for the Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunscreen! Love their Clear Face SPF 55 Sunscreen Lotion as well.
