Top 10 Drugstore Makeup Picks For January

Drugstore products are great for everyday use because they are easy to find and also easy on your wallet. These are the drugstore products that has worked for me since mid-December and that I have continued to use throughout the new year. All pictures are from Google images and the things mentioned (such as stores and brands) are not sponsoring me in any way and I purchased all of the products by myself! So let's get to it!

#1 Primer:  This primer is called the L'Oreal Paris Studio Secrets Magic Perfecting Base Primer. It's works amazing and all you need is one dab on your finger for full coverage. It's creamy, ultra-toning, and has no fragrance, just the way I like it! The price I got it for was 11.99 at ULTA. Sometimes they have deals going on like buy two L'Oreal products and get the third free!




#2 Lipgloss: this is called the Covergirl Wetslicks Amazemint Lipgloss. It is a creamy, not-too-sticky lipgloss that freshens your breath and keeps your lips moist and covered for at least 2 hours! This is all from experiance at school and just shopping around! I find that it stays on and tints your lips various colors! This is normally around
6 dollars and sometimes more at some drugstores.






 #3 Liquid Foundation: The best liquid foundation that is super cheap and good quality is the Maybelline Mineral Power Perfecting Liquid Foundation and is about 4.39 at ULTA stores! It is a one ounce bottle that lasts literally forever! The longest it has lasted me is three months! It has your skin tone color spot-on and gives you light to medium coverage throughout the day!




#4 Chapstick: The best chapstick that I have been using since I was a little kid is the Lip Smackers Chapstick in Wild Raspberry and Bubble Gum. These smell so good and gives such a good base for your lipgloss and actually makes it stay longer! The thing that I really adore about this product is that it's only about 2 dollars and gives your lips a shine like a lipgloss. This morning, I went to my local grocery store and swiped this across my lips without any makeup on. It mad my lip shine without any lipgloss!
          



 #5 Eyeshadow Quads: The best makeup quads that I have ever come across that are super cheap but high quality and ridiculously pigmented are the e.l.f. (eyes lips face) eyeshadow quads. These are only a dollar! Yes, you heard me! A dollar! They are high-end products that are specifically sold at Target stores and come in many different themes. Matte Mauve, Drama, Silver Lining, and Ivy (shown) are my favorite!



#6 Eyeshadow singles: The best eyeshadow singles that I always go back for are the Maybelline high-pearl eyeshadow singles that are so pigmented and come in beautiful colors that are almost dupes for MAC! These are about 3.29 at ULTA but sometimes are on sale and once I got mine for 1.29! Just keep an eye out at your drugstore or ULTA store! My personal favorites are Urban Brown and Sparkling Wine (shown).








#7 Eyeliner: My favorite eyeliner is a gel liner from Maybelline. It's called the
Maybelline Eye Studio Geli Liner in black. This gel liner is the best one ever! It glides on so nicely and shapes your eyes perfectly! This is so creamy and pigmented and if bought at Walmart stores, come with an eyeliner! At Walmart, this product is about 8-9 dollars. It is a great buy and has a great amount of product made of a thick formula that makes you use only a small amount of the product, making it last for so long!


#8 Mascara: The Covergirl Lashblast Fusion in Black is a keeper! All I can say is that it is a great lengthing and volumizing mascara that gives you such a batted-eyelash look. These range from 6-8 dollars at some drugstores.





#9 Eye Pencil: The best eye pencil I have come across just this past week is the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk (shown). They come is various different colors and have a lot of product. This can serve as a base, eyeliner, or eyeshadow and are very versatile. I bought mine at ULTA for 4.19. Another personal favorite is the same Jumbo Pencil in Yogurt. These glide on so smooth and blend into almost everything! A great buy!               
       



#10 Loose Powder: The best pressed powder EVER is the Physicians Formula Organic Wear Loose Powder! The best part about this product is that it's organic and very useful! It gives your look a perfect airbrushed finish and doesn't make your skin oily at all! This ranges from 8-10 dollars but lasts for about 2-3 months! The tones and color matching are also spot on and true to the color on the packaging!

  7. The Nyx Eye pencils are excellent products. I've been thinking about purchasing the Maybelline mineral power foundation, but was hesitant. I might just give it a try now.
