My Favourite Drugstore Makeup

Hello, hello!

I hope everyone had a fab weekend.  We played in the pool, went for walks and tried to beat the heat!

Today's blog is going to be a run down of some of my favourite drugstore finds.

Most of these products are not new, but they are what I use and have used for ages.

Let's jump into it!

Covergirl Katy Kat Matte Lipstick, Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick, L'oreal infallible Eyeshadow, Maybelline Color Tattoo, Flower Colorplay Crème Eyeshadow, Covergirl Clump Crusher Mascara, Covergirl Brow and Eyemaker, Covergirl Clen Pressed Powder, NYX Conceal. Correct. Contour


The new Katy Kat Matte's are everything.  They have become my go to lip colour.  They are smooth, pigmented and feel great on the lips.

Revlon Super Lustrous is a staple in my collection.  They are smooth and creamy.  Apply perfectly and last all day with minimal touch ups.

I have an array of colours in both of these formulas, but two of my favourits colours are Kitty Purry and Blushing Mauve.


I find that drug store eyeshadow is usually not great.  It doesn't blend, isn't pigmented and is really hit and miss.

Three exceptions to this are L'oreal Infallible Crème Shadows, Maybelline Color Tattoo and Flower Cosmetics Crème Shadows.

All three go on creamy and pigmented.  They are so easy to work with and create a great effect.  

Flower Cosmetics Wild Geranium, Maybelline Bad to the Bronze, L'oreal Amber Rush.

I am never without those three shades.


Two of my three everyday face items are drugstore.  I try the high end products and always come back to these.

Covergirl Clean Pressed Powder.

This powder goes on light and smooth.  It isn't powdery (lol) or streaky.  It keeps me shine free for 6-8 hours and when you reapply, it doesn't clump.

NYX.  Conceal. Correct. Contour

I bought this on a whim one day at the drug store and boy was it a good whim!

It comes in three tones, light, medium and dark and will work for most skin tones.

This entire palette is creamy, applies smoothly and lasts all day.  You have the option to correct under eye circles and red blemishes and then conceal with the skin tone colours.  I don't contour much, but the contour here blends perfectly and isn't too yellow, so can work for a pink toned person like me!


I have huge brows and I like them that way.  Since pregnancy, they have gotten sparse and I have been experimenting with different brow products.  I have landed on this one and haven't looked back.

Covergirl Brow & Eye Makers

This pencil is easy to apply, doesn't drag on the skin and gives a very natural look to the brow.  The colour range isn't great and won't work for everyone.  This lasts all day on me.


I try to love other mascaras, but they always end up being compared to this one and between application, longevity and price point, there is no competition!

Covergirl Clump Crusher

I use this every day.  It applies like a dream, doesn't clump, can be layered, lengthens, volumizes and lasts all day.  No flaking, no running and it washes off quickly and easily.

Those are my drug store favourites.  I always have them on hand and hope you will check some of them out.

Take care,
