I've been using a few new drugstore beauty products these past few months and actually used most of them on my wedding day. Here are the products I'm loving right now:
L'Oréal Voluminous Superstar Mascara: I love that this mascara is a two-in-one with a primer. It seriously makes your lashes look long and voluminous and like you are wearing lash extensions!
Maybelline Brow Precise Fiber Volumizer: I've tried several drugstore brow gels, but this one is by far my favorite. The wand actually fills in your brows with small fibers to make them look much thicker! I have this product in the soft brown color.
L'Oréal Infallible Pro-Glow Foundation: Now that the cooler weather is setting in and my dry skin is getting even drier, I'm looking for a drugstore foundation that gives me good coverage and leaves it glowing. The Pro-Matte version of this foundation got a lot of love and good reviews. While I liked the product in general, it just looked dry and patchy on my skin. However, I'm absolutely loving the Pro-Glow! My skin looks more luminous and even, and the foundation feels so light on my face! I definitely recommend the foundation for normal-to-dry skin. I have the shade in 204.
Maybelline Master Strobing Stick in Nude Glow: I've been loving this highlighter stick for a few months (I even used it on my wedding day!). It is such an amazing highlighter and gives you a glow without being glittery or sparkly!
Makeup Revolution Vivid Baked Bronzer in Golden Days: As far as I know, this is only sold at Ulta, but at $6, it feels on par with some of the high-end bronzers at Sephora. This does have a slight shimmer to it, but that's why I bought it (and also used it on my wedding day). I used it on my cheekbones and temples over my matte contour and it gave me the perfect sun-kissed glow.
If you're a fan of extreme volume, take note: This mascara gets you that long, dark, as-if-you're-wearing-falsies look thanks to a innovative formula that contains built-in fibers that naturally stack on top of your lashes without weighing them down.
Dot this creamy formula onto specific areas of your skin (like a blemish) or sweep it all over to make skin look more even in one step. Green helps reduce redness, lilac brightens sallowness, peach illuminates dark circles on light skin tones, while orange helps conceal undereye shadows on darker skin tones. Plus, the vitamin E-infused sticks help hydrate.
The worst part about washing your face? Having to wash your face. These silky sheets appeal to the lazy girl in all of us with the ability to wipe away makeup and impurities — without having to get up off your couch. Each sheet is drenched in nutrient-rich carrot water, vitamins, and other antioxidants that rejuvenate your skin as it cleanses.
With this glitter liquid eyeliner, sparkly eye makeup is more versatile than you think. Use the thin brush to add a sliver of glitter to bare lids for a subtle pop of shimmer, or pair a dramatic cat eye with a smoky shadow for a stunning night-out look.
As the name suggests, this high-shine formula stays on lips for up to six hours of wear. And though it's long lasting, it doesn't have any of the stickiness you usually associate with gloss (thanks to lightweight argan oil).
For all of fall's scenic and stylish benefits — pumpkin patches, leather jackets, and booties, to name a few — the transition to cooler weather leaves our skin dry and parched. The first place it shows? Our hands. But this non-greasy formula is a boss at moisturizing on the go. Plus, it leaves behind a gorgeous scent.
For everything we put our hair through (coloring, hot tools, dry shampoo overload), this hydrating rinse-out treatment nourishes hair and gives each strand a deep dose of moisture to give hair a fresh start. Indian coconut water and Madagascan vanilla milk not only leave hair soft and shiny, they smell amazing, too.
This smoky shadow palette is no one-trick pony: It not only includes four complementing, highly pigmented shades, it also features an eye primer to boost color intensity, a highlighter, and a gel liner.
