MUST HAVE DRUGSTORE PRODUCTS II: The Products You Need To Try

It is no secret I love a fab find especially when its under $10 and from the drugstore. BPAMC is all about quality products and just because its from the drugstore does NOT, I repeat does NOT mean you wont find it when a product is “cheap” Out of this list only 3 products that are over $10 but trust me they are worth it! On my Instagram I love to show products that are $10 or less because lets face it, there are some gems at the drugstore. When it comes to must have drugstore products, these are tried and true, always in reach and in rotation. To see other must have drugstore products I love click here.

Drugstore Product List: (click product to shop)

  1. Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer: PRICE: $14.99 This bronzer is making the list again for me because that is HOW AMAZING IT IS!!! If you have not tried this yet what are you waiting for? Best part? It now comes in more shades!!! This bronzer will warm up your face and sculpt it while smelling like you are in the tropics! The name is true to its formula because its extremely buttery, blends like a dream and I can say this is a pretty darn close dupe for NARS Laguna Bronzer.
  2. Colourpop Super Shock Highlighter in shade WISP: PRICE: $8.00 Just look at this pan in the photo! I can not get enough of this buttery wet glowing goodness!!! This is by far my most reached for highlighter.
  3. L’Oreal Voluminous Lash Primer:  PRICE: $7.99 Take your lashes to the next level with this primer! There are so many expensive options out there and just like most mascaras there is absolutely no need to pay big bucks! Pair this with L’Oreal Lash Paradise Mascara and you will get all the length and volume you will ever want for your lashes!
  4. Maybelline Dream Brightening Concealer: PRICE $5.99 Quick and easy with a luminous finish to give your under eyes a more awake appearance! If you are into easy makeup that is not too heavy this is a conceraler to try! Also if your skin is a bit more mature as its not drying at ALL!
  5. NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss: PRICE $5.00 UGHHH I love this gloss but its so hard to find now! So if you ever find it grab it and dont look back. Its a dupe for sooo many high end lip glosses out there! If you can not find it you can always go with the NYX Butter Glosses!

6. Burt’s Bees Blush: PRICE: $ 9.49 One of my newest loves in the drugstore department are these blushes. Smooth, buttery and pigmented! They perform like a high end blush for a fraction of the cost. The only downside is there are only 3 shades available. See swatches and shades HERE.

7. ColourPop Eye shadow Palettes: PRICE: $16.00 Colourpop has been a brand I have just fallen in love with. Whether you find them at Ulta or on the Colourpop website there is something for everyone. With lauches happening non stop you sometimes cant keep up but the eye shadow palettes are work every penny! The color scheme options are endless. They blend beautifully, are very pigmented and have a variety of finishes in each palette to maximze your looks. I am not huge on eye shadow because I am not fancy with it so to spend a ton of money on eye shadow is just not my thing. However for $16 and sometimes cheaper I am all for it!

Fenty Concealer: 50 Shades For All!!!

Who doesn’t love concealer?!! It’s the one beauty product we expect magic from yet when we find one we love we still keep trying more lol! Am I right? Fenty Concealer dropped and once again the beauty community freaked out because they released 50 shades! Yes you read that correctly. They released 50 shades! Best part about the shade range is they made it easy for you to find your shade because the concealer number matches your Fenty Beauty Foundation shade. However if you do not use the Fenty Foundation like myself its a bit overwhelming to be honest. Do not get me wrong I am not by any means complaining about the shade range. Brands being inclusive is very important to me and one of the reasons I love Fenty. I searched for swatches online and reviewed the shade descriptions like I was preparing for a thesis. Here are my results lol

FENTY CONCEALER SWATCHES:

As I reviewed the darker side of the light shades and the lighter side of the medium shades I wanted to try at least four that were on the more warm/neutral side as that is typically my shade with other brands. I grabbed shades 190, 210, 230 and 240.

Swatches Top To Bottom:

SHOP THEM HERE

190: light to medium skin w/ warm undertones

210: light to medium skin w/ warm neutral undertones

230: light to medium skin w/ neutral undertones

240: medium skin w/ warm undertones

Fenty Concealer

210 ended up being my shade match and I was a bit surprised as its more warm but I was convinced 230 would have been my match but its sooo much lighter than 210. 190 ended up being more of a closer match to me than 230 as it was close to 210. I spoke with fellow bloggers and they had the same issues with finding a match but 210 was my perfect match from these 4. Do I love it? Yes but no.

FENTY CONCEALER DETAILS:

  • Creamy
  • Long Wearing
  • Crease Proof
  • Soft Matte
  • Full Coverage
  • $26.00
  • 50 Shades with multiple undertones

Its super creamy and blends beautifully into your skin however it dries down pretty matte. When something is too matte for me it sits on my skin and accentuates my lines and makes me look older. If you have been following me long enough you know I prefer for my makeup to sink into my skin and look natural. Do I think others loving this Fenty Concealer is crazy? Absolutely not! The coverage is very opaque and covers the dark circles. This is what we want in a concealer. But when it comes to the finish of a concealer its a preference. My personal preference is natural and or dewy. I used this a few times on very moisturized prepped skin and its looks absolutely beautiful but if my skin is not super hydrated/prepped it sits there instead of blending in. But dont mistake that for not blending well, because it blends wonderful and I only used the beauty blender for my applications.

Fenty Concealer

NARS and MAC are my go to concealers that I use regularly. I wanted to take those out along with others in my collection in hopes to help you out there find your match if you are close to my skin tone. I consider myself Medium (sometimes a tad lighter) with neutral undertones. If you are interested in this concealer or already have the foundation and love it I highly suggest you trying it! There is a beautiful thing out there called returns. Please do not be shy to return makeup that turns out not being your color, or you dont like it or maybe you got a reaction from it! Most retailers here in the US accept returns on makeup no questions asked.

In the meantime if you are around the shades below I hope these swatches help you find your match! I would love to know your Holy Grail concealer(s) and if you are planning on trying this one!
