Drugstore Makeup Tag

Hello Ladies,

I <3 Drugstore Makeup!!!

This tag has been floating around on YouTube, and I thought it would make for a great Friday blog post. 
Feel free to share your answers to the questions in the comments or leave a link to your blog.  I tag all of you!

1. Favorite Drugstore Brand in General?
Revlon- Their lip products are the best, and I love a good lip product.  In particular I love the Lip Butters, Kissable Balm Stains and Super Lustrous Lipsticks.  
ELF Studio blush in Fushia Fusion

2. Favorite Face/Cheek/Lip Product?
Face: Revlon Colorstay Whipped Foundation
Cheek: Elf Studio Blush in Fushia Fusion
Lip: Revlon Lip Butter in Sweet Tart

3. Least Favorite Drugstore Product?
Wet N Wild Perfect Pair Eye Wand- I found the coverage and staying power to both be disappointing.  It is a good idea, but the product leaves a lot ot be desired.

4. Best Drugstore Bargain?
Wet N Wild Silk Finish Lipstick- These babies are less than $1, and the color payoff is amazing.
Light Berry Frost is on the left; Light Beige Frost is on the right.

5. Favorite Underdog Product?
Spoiled Nail Polishes- I love these polishes, and they are $1.99 at CVS.  With two coats and a topcoat, they last me about five days.  Also, the color selection is fabulous!
Spoiled Nail Polisn in I Got So Plastered

6. Overpriced Drugstore Product?

Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush- The color payoff is not there, and this blush is about $8.  For $3, you can get a great ELF blush, and a NYX blush is around $4.50.  The Maybelline blush is not worth the price. 

7. Best Drugstore Dupe?
One of my all-time favorite eye shadows is UD Blunt.  I think NYX Single Eyeshadow in Vanilla Sky is a pretty good dupe for Blunt.

Urban Decay Blunt

 8. Product that isn't worth the hype?
Physician's Formula Happy Booster Translucent Powder- it smells good, but the packaging is bulking.  The powder itself doesn't do much for me.  You can get way better powders/highlights for less than this one.

Alright, girls.  It’s your turn!  Let you know what you think.

Talk Soon,
