Any woman that loves makeup as much as we do knows it can sure add up quickly! Thats why as much as we love our Nars, Bobbi Brown and Laura Mercier, we also really love a great drugstore find! Below are three of our top picks that have become staples in our makeup bag.
1. Rimmel Stay Matte Powder. After constantly (and we mean constantly!) hearing about this stuff from every makeup blogger out there we had to give it a try and we were certainly glad we did. Although it comes in different shades, this finely milled powder is nearly translucent and leaves us matte without looking powdery. This has even replaced our Makeup Forever HD Powder as the clear favourite.
2. L'Oreal MagicLumi Concealer. This is a new product for L'Oreal and the minute we saw the gorgeous rose gold tube we had to try it simply for the packaging. Great news, the product is also just as gorgeous! Similar to the cult fave YSL Touche Eclat, this pen style concealer has slightly more coverage than its YSL counterpart and provides a nice highlight with no visible glitter flakes. Because of this, we find it particularly useful under the eyes.
3. L'Oreal Voluminous Mascara. Considering mascara is the beauty product with the shortest shelf life, it's great to find one that does the job and retails for around $10. We've tried many mascaras and continuously get lured in by the newest one in the store, but we always seem to go right back to this trusty black and gold tube which delivers massive volume without clump, and the Carbon Black shade really does leave your lashes extra dark and luxe looking.
All of our drugstore faves are pictured here in our favourite Rebecca Minkoff Glam Kit makeup bag, available in store and for 50% off, making it $47.50!
Happy Monday everyone!
