The Drugstore Beauty Bits that Survived the Purge


A little while back I did a deep purge of my makeup collection and have been loving every day since. It's so much easier to find what I'm looking for, use up products, and get the most out of my makeup every morning. A lot of drugstore beauty left my possession that day, but these few products survived to tell the tale.

A surprising number of foundations made the cut. After really assessing each foundation's strengths and differences these three actually vary quite a lot. The Maybelline Superstay Better Skin is much more matte than the other two with a slightly dewy finish. It's coverage is decent and I like the lasting power. The Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation is much more dewy and lighter on the skin. It's more like a tinted moisturizer in the way I use it. I never like my foundation to be too heavy no matter the coverage, so I use very little product. It's a great drugstore alternative to the bareMinerals Complexion Rescue if you can't swing the price difference. The Covergirl Ready Set Gorgeous Foundation is right in between the two on basically all accounts. These foundations have me covered.

Two blushes made the cut and are incredibly different from each other. Max Factor's "Seductive Pink" Blush is a traditional rosy pink shade while the Revlon Blush in "Wine Not" is much deeper and more berry toned than any other blush in my collection.

My love of drugstore mascaras means I had to keep a fair share.I love the Maybelline Rocket Mascara and the LashSensational Mascara together and separate. The Rocket adds serious volume while LashSensational gives you great length. Perfection.

The only lipstick I kept from the drugstore is one that a Helloigan sent me a few months ago. It's "Freida's Nude" and is a lovely purple toned natural shade. It reminds me a lot of MAC's "Syrup" in coloration and consistency.

Those are all the drugstore bits that survived the makeup purge. What products do you love from the drugstore?

xoxo Kayla
