Mini Drugstore Makeup Haul


Friends!

I am here with a little drugstore haul post (that is much overdue). I got these bits and pieces a while back and have been loving most of them!

1.

NYC Smooth Skin Translucent Powder

Wowzies…this stuff is amazing for such a great price ($4!). It is awesome for people who like to bake their face (yes, I have finally started baking my face hahaha). It does a great job mattifying the face and leaving it very smooth and natural-looking. I have been going for this powder this whole month rather than my usual Rimmel Stay Matte Powder.

Wet N’ Wild Bronzer

This massive bronzer was only $4 at Target and gives me a warm, sun-kissed face. It applies nicely on the skin and leaves a gentle hue to your skin. I don’t usually like to contour too much so I like to use this with a big fluffy brush around my cheekbones and forehead for a subtle bronzed look. Me like!

Wet N’ Wild Blush in “Apri-cot in the Middle”

I am not much of a blush person but I saw these Wet N’ Wild Coloricon blushes for only $2.99 so I wanted to try one. I got the shade “Apricot” and it’s the perfect “not too pinky” shade that gives you a natural flushed look. I’m not a fan of having pink cheeks, so this shade is perfect for me. It is not the most pigmented, but it’s worth the price!

Rimmel Lasting Finish Foundation with Comfort Serum

This $7.99 foundation is such a bargain. Definitely for people who have dry to oily combination skin. NOT for people with super oily skin since it does have a slight dewy finish (hence the comfort serum). I’ve always been quite oily but with the weird weather changes, my skin has developed into a more oily combo skin with dry patches. I find this foundation so comfortable, especially after a good powdering. It lasts for a good 8 hours one me, though it claims to be 25 hour-lasting (I don’t think I will ever wear makeup for that long anyways lol). Overall, a solid drugstore foundation for those who are in a budget!

Ultra Super Blender Sponge Applicator

This is the only item that was technically not from a drugstore but I still wanted to include it. This is meh. I was not too fond of the shape and I think it was $4.99 at Ulta. I wanted to try a different sponge applicator and the quality is not worth the $5. Super absorbent (esp with foundation) and I already found a little rip in it after washing it once. I felt like I was putting little to no foundation on my skin which is a bummer. I think there are Real Techniques sponges that are around the same price and far better!

I promise to try and upload more!
