Drugstore Favourites {Spring 2013}

Revlon Colorstay Whipped Creme Makeup
Love this drugstore foundation! An impulse buy that proved successful. Medium coverage, non-greasy, leaves skin looking flawless. Best way to apply is with a beauty blender sponge, fingers work too but I find the finish with the sponge is the best. Very creamy formula but doesn’t feel heavy on the skin. Texture is like whipped cream! Shade #250 Medium Beige, hard to see the shade in-store so hopefully testers are available where you shop.

L Oréal Paris Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream
Another impulse buy that proved successful. Not a typical BB cream texture; pigments are in beads suspended in a milky lotion that once applied transform into colour. Slightly darker than I’d typically like but spread evenly and lightly works. Not as dewy as other BB creams so those with oilier skin-types will appreciate the finish. Shade Medium

Covergirl + OLAY Concealer Balm
Creamy concealer in a lipstick style applicator, easy to apply! I prefer this as a blemish or spot cover-up due to its creamy consistency. Shade #330 light pale will be too dark for those fair skinned ladies as I found this to be yellow based and perfect for my medium skin tone.

Marcelle Instant Volume Mascara
Amazing mascara if you want full lashes! Has a twist applicator but I just leave in the long setting. The shorter setting is for more volume but didn’t notice a significant difference in fullness, either way love the brush!
