I Heart Drugstore Makeup Tag

Hello beautiful readers,

I wanted to do something a bit different today - I found this beauty tag online and even though it's old and no one tagged me, I thought it'd be fun to do it anyway! I do not consider myself to be a beauty blogger but I'm all for affordable makeup and looking nice on a budget. I have quite a drugstore makeup collection so I thought this tag would be right up my alley. 

What is your favorite drugstore makeup brand? I would have to say NYX - affordable and the quality is amazing!

What are your favorite face, cheek and lip products?
Face: Maybelline BB Cream - pretty much saved my face this winter 
Cheek: Milani baked blush 
Lip: NYX soft matte lip cream

Least favorite product?  
Rimmel glam eyes mascara - good idea in theory but doesn't hold my straight Asian lashes :[

What is the best makeup bargain? 
Wet n Wild 'Comfort Zone' palette - $4 a pop for 8 gorgeous and very pigmented shades!

What is your favorite underdog product? (Something you love that often gets overlooked?) 
Cover Girl natureluxe gloss balm - I feel like people loved this when it first came out but I never hear anyone talking about it anymore. It's so soft and amazing and it gives just the right amount of color to my lips. Definitely a Spring go-to color!

A drugstore product that is overpriced? 
Pretty much anything by Neutrogena - their product quality isn't bad per se but it's not as good as it should be considering the price point. 

I tag everyone and anyone who wants to do this :]

Thanks for reading!


  1. I've never really been a fan of neutrogena either- especially their cover up. It's like skin toned water, it doesn't do anything. And I LOVE wet n wild- it's so cheap and it's seriously good quality. Their lipsticks especially are crazy pigmented and they're like $1. You can't beat that!

  2. I agree, NYX makes such good products at such nice prices! I haven't ever tried anything by wet n wild, but I keep hearing people talk about it so I must give it a try soon :)

  3. I totally agree with you about Neutrogena. I have purchased their products before, but have never really loved them!

  4. im actually a huge fan of revlon, especially their foundation and nail colors

    xo, Liz

  5. I think we don't have NYX here in Germany! And I have to admit that I mostly don't know the brands I use - I mostly buy them because I like the products from the sight. But in the past I bought some products which were recommened by bloggers e. g. a mascara from Essence (a drugstore brand which one can buy in Germany) and I really like it.

    Hope you had a satisfying week so far!

  6. I buy some of my make up too from drugstore and i think that some of them were as good as the pricey ones. I have used NYX too.


  7. Nice review! :D I just used nyx once, and honestly, they are good despite the fact that it is pretty cheap compared to others. :)

    Make up from drugstores sometimes has the quality of those who that are expensive. If we really give them the chance, then we could save much more money I think. :3

  8. I've been obsessed with that WnWild palette for far too long, I need to get my hands on it! I will do this post in the future, love your answers!

  9. Such a fun tag! I need that Wet n Wild Palette in my life! :)

  11. Nice post!


  12. Great answers! I also am in love with NYX's lip cremes! <3


  13. Fun idea for a post! It's funny, I've been debating a beauty-related post recently as well, but I'm in no way an expert.

    Drug store make up is totally all about knowing where it's the smart choice, and where to stay away.

  14. I love your blog! Would you like to follow each other? Let me know :) I'll follow right back!

  15. Ooh even if you didn't get tagged, I'm glad you did this! I'm always more willing to try out drugstore products (duh, saving $$), so I love hearing about good products. I never jumped on the BB cream train, but I think I will look more into this Maybelline one :)


  16. These are some fabulous looking products! I'll have to check them out next time I'm at the drugstore.

  17. Such a fun post! I love maybelline mascara!


  18. thanks for your comment on my post title about the 'real things'. i guess there are things which you cannot see and cannot touch - feelings. your soul. god. dragons and unicorns - but they exist. and children seem to have notion of these invisible things. but when we get older, we seem to lose faith in them.


Thank you for your comments! I read every single one :]
