I tested out a bunch of drugstore beauty products recently and thought I’d share my favorites. Over the last few years, I’ve definitely started to invest in more expensive beauty products, but I still love the thrill of a cheap beauty find that works.
L’Oréal True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation: I was using this a few months ago, but decided the shade was off a little bit, so I never totally loved how I looked when I wore it. I recently got a darker one and now I love it. It’s so quick to apply and the coverage is perfect for me—not too heavy, but definitely covers imperfections in my skin. I top it with Laura Geller’s foundation powder (on some days) and just a swipe of bronzer on others.
Flower Color Proof Long-Wear Lip Creme: I am hooked on this lip cream! I love the matte finish and applicator—and it lasts hours. I’ve been using the ‘Sandbar’ shade.
Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water: I’ve used Simple’s Micellar water in the past, specifically in the dry cooler months in lieu of washing my face in the morning. I just started using this when I’m too lazy to wash my face at night and in the morning, and love how refreshed my skin feels. It also takes off stubborn eye makeup, which is a huge plus in my book.
Pixi Black Lacquer Lash Primer: This stuff is amazing! I apply it before my mascara and it makes my lashes so thick and dark. It does make taking your eye makeup off at night a little more tedious, but it’s worth it!
Garnier Damage Eraser: My hair is super dry and damaged thanks to coloring and heat, but this quick in-shower hair mask leaves it soft and silky. I’ve been using it a few times a week and am almost done with my first bottle!
