Raise your hand if you are ready for Christmas! My hand is totally not raised right now, in case you were wondering! Can you believe there is only 3 more days until the most magical holiday of the year? I still have buying to do, wrapping paper to buy and cookies to bake!
For this week’s edition of Friday Finds, I want to focus on one of my favorite things: makeup! I am definitely that person that wakes up every morning and puts my makeup on before leaving the house. Most days I will try out a new eye shadow combo or maybe a new lip color. I love finding new brands that I have never tried and I am always looking for products that are within my budget!
Is there anything better than picking up some new makeup at the drugstore and ALL of them being amazing?! I don’t think so! I have a ton of drugstore makeup so I picked a few to share with you guys today. Each of these products are ones I have used or currently use and are not expensive! Let’s get started!
NYX Slide On Lip Pencil in Nude Suede Shoes: If you have been looking for a beautiful nude color, look no further! This lip pencil goes on smooth and lasts all day. I took a shower after wearing this for most of the day and when I got out, I still had some on my lips! The nude color is absolutely perfect and I use this as more of a lipstick then a traditional lip pencil. $7.99 at Target.
Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara: I use this mascara every single day to finish off my look! With my makeup, I like a more bold eyelash look and this mascara is PERFECT for me. I hope they never discontinue this mascara, I would be lost! $6.99 at Target.
e.l.f. Mist and Set Illuminating Spray: I have had this setting spray since the summer and I use it all the time! I got the CoverFX spray in one of my Boxycharm boxes so I switch off and on which one I use. I can honestly say that for the price, you are getting a great product. I will definitely be buying this again! I also use it to wet my brush if I am packing on glitter eye shadow. $2.99 at Target.
Wet N Wild Eyeshadow Palette in Walking on Eggshells: I love this eyeshadow palette so much and use it whenever I am going for a natural look! The colors are subtle and go perfectly with my very fair skin. I sometimes add a darker brown color without the shimmer to the crease if I am looking for a little more definition. $2.99 at Target.
Maybelline Mega Plush Volume Express Mascara: One of my favorite things about this mascara is the wand! The bristles grab each eyelash and give so much volume. The wand also bends if you want to really get into the corners and hard to reach lashes. I have mine in Very Black! $5.99 at Target.
Covergirl Stay Luminous Foundation: I don’t know about you but I love a glowy and dewy look! This foundation gives really great coverage and an all over glow! I use this product almost everyday in the summer and pair it with bronzer and a little highlighter. I have it in the color Classic Ivory. $6.48 on Amazon.
e.l.f Eyebrow Kit in Light: As much as I love all things makeup and beauty, I almost never fill in my eyebrows! I had my eyebrows waxed at a new place and they filled in my eyebrows for me, free of charge, and I really liked the way it looked! I didn’t want to spend a ton of money on a product because I wasn’t sure how often I would do it, so I went for my go-to brand e.l.f! I got the kit in Light and it is so subtle and I can build up the product to make my eyebrows as dark or light as I want. I still don’t do them as often as I would like but when I do, this is what I grab! $2.99 at Target.
NYX Butter Gloss in Creme Brulee: This lip color is so pretty and I literally wear it all the time! I love a pink color for my lips and this gloss is perfect. It isn’t sticky, which is a pet peeve of mine, and it also doesn’t dry out my lips. The only downfall is I find I have to reapply a lot during the day! $4.99 at Target.
Revlon PhotoReady Concealer: If you are a fan of stick concealer opposed to liquid then you definitely have to try out this Revlon concealer! I have used it for a long time and I sometimes even use this product with my Maybelline FitMe concealer if I have a red, pesky break out. I have this concealer in Light. $7.69 at Amazon.
NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss in Sugar Pie: Last but certainly not least is this beautiful lip gloss by NYX! This color is very subtle and adds a tiny pink tone to the lips but major gloss. I like to use it over my lipsticks for a more shiny finish. $4.99 on Amazon.
