Maybelline SuperStay Full Coverage Foundation – Out of all the drugstore foundations I’ve tried, this one has the best coverage and truly lasts ALL DAY.

Runner-up:wet n wild Photo Focus Concealer – At only $4 it really is a miracle that this concealer is SO good. This concealer is perfect for days where you want a light-weight concealer that brightens and covers up those pesky dark circles. And who can argue with this price?

Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer– I’ve only talked about this bronzer a billion times this year already, but in case you’ve been waiting to take the plunge into paradise, do it now!

NYX Dewy Finish Makeup Setting Spray– Setting sprays have quickly became my best friend since moving to South Georgia, and I LOVE this dewy finish one from NYX.

L’Oreal Lash Paradise Mascara – If you want a mascara that lengthens, adds volume, and curls all-in-one, then you need this mascara in your life. Also, the wand on this mascara is everything! It gets even those hard to reach baby lashes on the ends and inner corner. 

Runner-up: Catrice Glam & Doll False Lashes Mascara – On the flip side, if you want your lashes to look like you’re wearing falsies, give this amazing mascara a try. The wand also does a really great job of separating all the lashes so they don’t look clumpy – simply long + gorgeous.

Ardell Faux Mink Demi Wispies – Speaking of falsies, these lashes are the perfect mix of flirty and dramatic and are SO beautiful! The invisible band also makes them seamlessly blend in with your natural lashes. I always get so many compliments when wearing these and they’re definitely my favorite.

Physicians Formula Healthy Lip Liquid Lipsticks – These liquid lipsticks quickly became one of my absolute favorites last year, and people are always shocked when I tell them they’re from the drugstore!

    I have not used half of these products! I love that mascara though! Seriously by far the best drug store mascara’s I’ve ever used. have recently purchased some Pixi items and I can’t wait to use them! I saw Casey Holmes talking about the Makeup Revolution Concealer yesterday, so I def need to check that out! I’ve been using the Maybelline ageless concealer and love it but I am almost out. Loved this round up!

    I love the Butter Bronzer and Lash Paradise Mascara! Have you tried their Bronze Booster? It gives you a tad bit more color, but it doesn’t have that yummy cocoa butter smell like this one. Will have to try the other products you suggested πŸ™‚
