Recently I’ve picked some great drugstore products that I can’t put down! I picked up all of these products after reading reviews and hearing good things about them for sometime.
I was in need of a new primer and this was on sale buy one get one half off, plus I had a gift card. I have read some great things about this from other who have oily skin, so I picked a couple of them up. I’m so glad I did! This is one of my favorite primers. It fills in the large pores on and around my nose as well as help with oil control. I’ve really noticed a difference and I’m not touching up nearly as much!
I finally caved and picked up the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer. I really wasn’t sure which shade to pick up so I grabbed Light and Fair (Left to Right above). As you can tell from the picture above Light is more yellow toned and Fair is more Pink toned. Both work for me but I like to mix them. I can’t believe I didn’t pick this up sooner. These give great coverage and they don’t crease!
Nicole from Young Wild and Polished raves about the Covergirl Clean Matte BB Cream for Oily Skin. Since most of her recommendations are pretty spot on for my skin type I had to try it out! This is the 5th day in a row I’ve worn it and I absolutely love it. It gives good medium coverage but I can build it up if needed or apply concealer in area’s I need extra coverage. I find this isn’t heavy and doesn’t get cakey on me. The shade Fair is almost a perfect match for me but I can’t believe this is the lightest shade! I’m pretty pasty but for anyone lighter than me this will be too dark. This in combination with the One Heck of a Blot really helps minimize my oiliness.
Last but certainly not least is the LA Girl Gel Eyeliner. I’m always on the hunt for a good gel eyeliner. This one actually wasn’t a recommendation but a random Amazon find that I figured I’d try out. I’m a big fan of a lot of L.A. Girl products and you can add this one to the list. It came with a small liner brush that works pretty well but I rely on my angled brush to get a nice wing. This has a creamy, smooth formula that glides on nicely and is black! I also find that I can easily put a couple layers on if I’m really wanting a thicker line. It doesn’t ball up or wipe away like some liners I have used when going back over to correct or thicken the liner. I’m really impressed so far and I’m hoping it doesn’t dry out too quickly.
If you have any other recommendations from the drugstore send them my way!
