I Heart Drugstore Makeup Tag

I have loved watching the I Heart Drugstore Makeup Tags on YouTube recently, and even though it is a little old, I thought it was a great concept and decided to do it any ways. 

1. What is your favorite drugstore makeup brand overall?
Currently, Rimmel or Revlon. I've recently been trying a lot of their products and I have yet to be dissappointed. That said, I have tried the most things from Covergirl.  
2. What are your favorite face, cheek and lip products?
I have tried so many foundations and "covering" products over the years and I've really loved/am currently loving Rimmel's Wake Me Up Concealer and Stay Matte Pressed Powder, Revlon's Colorstay Foundation, Covergirl's Clean Whipped Creme Foundation and Maybelline's Dream Fresh BB Cream and Fit Me Foundation. I'm not a big cheek girl so I've only really tried NYC's Mosaic Face Powders but I really like those. For lips, I love Revlon's lip products. They really are worth the hype. 

3. Least favorite product?
I have been really disappointed by a lot of Covergirl's face products. Well, though they definitely didn't fufill my expectations, looking back I realize that I just didn't know that there were the products out there that I have now. Also, L'Oreal's True Match Foundation was definitely a disappointment. 

4. What is the best makeup bargain?
Covergirl's Professional Mascara and Clean Whipped Creme Foundation are both like $5 or $6. Revlon Lip Butters and all of NYC's products. NYC is super affordable and their lipsticks, nail polishes and mosaic face powders are awesome. 

5. What is your favorite underdog product? (Something you love that often gets overlooked?)
Covergirl's Mascaras are really quite good but not many people talk about them, also Covergirl's Clean Whipped Creme Foundation. I seriously love that stuff. It is medium coverage, but I use it as more of a concealer, especially in the summer when I don't really wear foundation. Plus it's super great for travelling because you just use your hands to apply and it is a fairly small container, but a little goes a long way. I wouldn't recommend it for oily skin, though. 
6. A drugstore product that is overpriced?
Revlon Colorstay Foundation. That said, I feel the drugstore is getting kind of crazy with pricing overall.
7. Show your best drugstore dupe(s)!!
I have never bought a high end product, so I don't have any actual dupes. That said, last time I was in Wal-Mart I noticed Hard Candy is selling eyeshadow palettes with 10-12 colours in them, I think for $5. And there are four or five different palettes. The colours and formula might not be the same as say, the Naked Palettes or Mac's Palettes, but for $5 they looked really good. I didn't buy one, but I do own a Hard Candy Baked Eyeshadow Quad and I love it.  
8. Drugstore product that isn't worth the hype?
L'Oreal True Match Foundation. I still don't see the big deal about it.  

What are some of your favourite things from the drugstore?


  1. Love the stay matte powder too, very fun to read :)
