Happy Monday! I’m excited to be sharing some of my favorite new drugstore products with you today in my latest beauty haul. In case you’ve noticed these products in-store and have been on the fence, I’m here to help you out with my in-depth reviews of each and am letting you know which are must-haves! Let’s get started!
New Drugstore Makeup- Obsessions + Must-Haves
Flower Shimmer & Strobe Highlighting Palette– This palette is seriously the bomb dot com and I think I’ve found my new makeup line obsession. If I’m being honest, I bought this palette because the packaging is so pretty and not because I necessarily needed another highlighting palette. (Because let’s be honest, I have several amazing ones already) But, I’m oh so happy that I did! If there’s one product I would wholeheartedly recommend to you today, it would be this. The pigmentation is off the charts, the colors are absolutely gorgeous, and I honestly think it would look beautiful on every skin tone. I also really like the brush as well, as it is easy to gently glide over the upper cheekbone for that nice shimmer of highlight.
Flower Beauty Balm BB Cream– Another new purchase from the Flower line is this awesome BB Cream. I was intrigued with this one because it claimed to be full coverage, and full coverage it is. I really liked the blendability of the product, and although it’s full coverage it was very lightweight and made my skin look nice. If you struggle with redness or unevenness, I highly recommend this for giving you that good-looking, even coverage without being too heavy on the skin.
L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Glowing Water Cream for Normal/Dry Skin– The weather has been so back and forth in Virginia lately, which has not been fun on my skin. I recently stumbled upon this product at Wal-mart and really liked the sound of some of the claims on the box such as “72 hours of intense and continuous hydration.” I’m excited to report that I’ve been continuously using this product on my face every morning and night for about 2 weeks now and I’ve found a noticeable difference in my skin. It has definitely added hydration to my face, which makes my makeup look so much better. If you have dry skin or if you have normal skin and are looking for a product that will help give you that glowy effect, give this a try.
L’Oréal Paris Infallible Total Cover Foundation– I’ve already noticed a lot of beauty bloggers talk about this product with mixed reviews, but I personally LOVE it. I ran out of one of my high end foundations a few weeks ago, so I turned to this in the meantime and honestly I think it’s just as good if not better than some of the high end full-coverage foundations. I can see this foundation really working for people who struggle with breakouts and blemishes, or for those just wanting that full-face coverage. I would also add that when I use this foundation, I really don’t even have to use a concealer under my eyes, because it’s that good with coverage. 🙂
e.l.f. Aqua Primer Mist– I really like using primer mists when we start hitting warm weather, and this one is nice to spray on the skin before applying makeup. Not only does it help the makeup last longer, but it can even help give you more of a dewy finish which a lot of people prefer in the spring and summer months. I’m loving it and it’s a great inexpensive drugstore option for those looking for a good primer mist.
Wet n’ Wild Color Icon Ombre Blush in The Princess Daquiries and A Purple Haze– Although I realize these have actually been around since 2016, my local drugstores have always been sold out of these until recently where I snatched them up. These are really beautiful colors and add a nice glowy look to the cheeks. Also, don’t let the Purple Haze shade scare you off, it actually ended up being my favorite. Once it’s on the cheeks it’s like a light pink shade that looks so soft and romantic. The Princess Daquiries is also gorgeous in adding a pretty peach tone to the cheeks. I will say you do have to work a little to build up the product on the cheeks, but the shades are so pretty I’d say it’s worth it.
Wet n’ Wild Lash Renegade Mascara- Last but not least, this mascara is awesome! The wand features a multi-planal brush which is great for coating all those teeny tiny lashes on the outer corners, and the fiber formula has great staying power. I found it did a great job at really building up the lashes with a nice looking volume while also separating the lashes for added length. I’ve been reaching for this mascara almost on the daily lately and have been super impressed with the quality all-around.
