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?

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!

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

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

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
