5 DRUGSTORE BRUSHES UNDER $10

When it comes to Makeup Brushes you do not need to spend a ton of money for results. There are soooo many fabulous options at the Drugstore and for this post I want to talk about my 5 must have drugstore brushes! Not only are these affordable drugstore brushes but also all under $10 and can be found at Ulta Beauty & Target!

Elf Cosmetics Flawless Face Brush – $6.00: This brush is absolutely perfect for powder foundation. If you have been following me for a while you know I am a huge MAC Studio Fix Powder fan. Because the brush is a bit more dense it packs on so much product. Its so soft and is not too big either. The size is actually another great feature. Its compact enough to fit in a smaller makeup bag. Some days when I am doing my makeup on the train I will use it for my powder foundation, bronzer and then blush.

Real Techniques Expert Concealer Brush – $6.99: New to my collection but only after a few uses I am in love. This brush actually gave me this idea for this Drugstore Brushes post lol! This blends out concealer without streaks and the bristles are nice and soft which is important for such a delicate area of the face. When it comes to pot concealers using a brush makes them so much easier but I have been using this for all of mine.

Real Techniques Powder Brush – $9.99: When it comes to setting your whole face this brush will be your best friend. I do not always set my whole face but when I do this is the only brush I reach for.  The size and shape allow product to sweep over the entire face effortlessly. I have also used this for powder foundation but found the Elf Face Brush to work better. However this can be a multi – tasker in your collection!

Real Techniques Blush Brush – $8.99: Blush is my fav and when you have the right tools it is even better. With the shape you can get product perfect on the apple of your cheeks or can even use this as a bronzing brush to carve out your cheek bones. Another multi – tasker but I prefer this as a blush brush!

Elf Cosmetics Small Stipple Brush – $3.00: The cheapest on this list yet can do so much! I have used this for liquid foundation, cream blush, cream bronzer and cream contour. This brush is fool proof and a must have!

MAC VAMP LIPSTICK: FALL MAKEUP

Well it is officially Fall to me even though its 90 degrees in Chicago this week.  I am very much ready for a pumpkin spice lattes, sweaters, 60 degree days and a deep nude or vampy lip! In the recent years I have been changing up my makeup by seasons and have so much fun with it!  Whether its a bright orange lipstick for summer or darker toned lips for fall, I love playing with lipstick. When it comes to Fall makeup nothing screams it more than a MAC Vamp Lipstick. They can seem intimidating but berries and deeper purples can look gorgeous with a toned down makeup look. MAC has many more options than these but these are some classic MAC Vamp Lipstick options. Enjoy!!!

LIPSTICK SWATCHES TOP TO BOTTOM (click shade to shop!)

  • Diva: Matte – Intense Reddish Burgundy
  • Rebel: Satin – Midtonal Cream Plum
  • Sin: Matte –  Deep Dark Blue Red
  • Antique Velvet: Matte – Intense Brown
  • Instigator: Matte –  Deep Blackened Plum
  • Stone: Matte – Muted Greyish Taupe Brown

MAC REBEL LIPSTICKMAC VAMP LIPSTICK

Just like a red lip, you have to find a shade that works for you and one you are comfortable with. By just looking at the tube some look so much darker than they are so make sure to swatch and have fun with this trend! The MUA’s at MAC are always helpful with choosing the best shade and don’t forget there are tons of options at the drugstore for those who are just trying out this look or on a budget.

What is your go to look for Fall? Do you like to rock a vampy lip? Let me know in the comments below.

5 Minute Makeup: Must Have Products For A Quick Face!

When it comes to a quick makeup face we all want to be able to just slap it on and go. With two kids and working everyday I have found products that make my 5 minute makeup routine work. It does not require a lot of tools either which I prefer because sometimes I am doing my makeup on the train on my way to work (guilty! lol). Who else does this? Please tell me I am not the only one! Even if I don’t have all the tools I need as long as I have baby wipes lol or makeup wipes in my bag I am just find with using my hands and fingers.

Do I think you need these exact products? Not at all but these are the foundation products I have found that I need for the “I don’t have time and I need to look awake makeup and only have 5 minutes!” #momlife

5 Minute Makeup Products:

Click Products To Shop

Jouer Tinted Luminizing Tinted Moisturizer: Whatever BB Cream or CC cream works for you this is a must. Or maybe you need more full coverage so you have your favorite foundation that works best for you. I just prefer to be able to squeeze it on my hands, put  it on my face and keep going. The Jouer tinted moisturizer is one of my favs because its luminous enough to wake up my skin but does not leave me looking greasy. I am in shade Golden which also gives me a beautiful natural color. Sometimes foundations without adding tons of other face products you can looked washed out. I can just put this on and it looks nice. This one also comes in MATTE, see it here. 

MAC Studio Fix Perfecting Stick: I love this concealer for quick makeup days. Its very blendable and creamy, easy to apply because its a stick, has medium coverage and is a natural matte finish. I use shade NC 20

Makeup Revolution Baked Bronzer: This bronzer is a dupe for hourglass (See my DUPE LIST HERE) and is only $6!!! Its available in 3 shades at Ulta and gives a perfect amount of warmth to the skin without looking to dark. It also has a beautiful shimmer to it but not glittery at all. I also brush this on my eyelids to give my eyes a wash of color. I have been using bronzer as an eyeshadow for some time now and absolutely obsessed!

MAC Blush in WARM SOUL: Where has this blush been my whole life?!! I am not sure what took me so long but this blush pretty much has a cult following and now I know why. Its the perfect nude blush. Its described as a “mid tone beige with gold pearl”

L’Oreal Mascara: Honestly you can put any of the L’Oreal mascaras in front of me and I will use them. The newest one L’Oreal Paradise is on the top of the list but you can not go wrong with Original Voluminous, Carbon Black or Lash Paradise. If you don’t own any of these I strongly suggest them. I prefer them over any high end mascara!

MAC Great Brows & Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel: So lets just say my eyebrows are thin (insert being a teen in the 90’s here) and do not have great shape to them. If I don’t fill in my brows even the slightest when I have on makeup, I don’t feel put together.  I have tried a few different powders but MAC has won me over once again. I personally love the Dior Brow Style Pencil as well but in a hurry I just take the powder fill in a bit and lock it in with the Anastatsia Clear Brow Gel. I know this brow gel is expensive but it literally keeps everything in place and my powder and or pencil product in place which I need.

MAC Blankety & NYX Butter Gloss in Fortune Cookie: MAC Blankety is my all time must have nude lip color. Its the perfect shade for me (see MAC NUDE swatches Here) When I add a bit of NYX butter gloss in Fortune Cookie on top it gives a great shiny every day nude for me.

NYX STORE OPENING EVENT: WOODFIELD MALL

A NYX free standing store has finally landed in the Chicago area and I could not be happier. NYX Cosmetics offers some of the best quality at the drugstore with affordable price tags (insert my fav $6 concealer here lol). You may be thinking, what makes the free standing store so different from the massive selections available at Ulta?!!?? Trust me I thought the same things until I had the pleasure to attend the NYX Store Opening Preview Event.  It is not a very large store, maybe a bit smaller than your average free standing MAC store. However I will say the amount of products offered by NYX Cosmetics is anything short of amazing along with the features the store offers. We are use to seeing the products offered at Ulta or even Walgreen’s  but once you are inside a NYX Store you are taken back.

The store is located inside the Woodfield Mall right outside MACY’s on the lower level.  The walls are covered from top to bottom with products with NYX colors: black, white and hot pink! Its my dream lol When you walk in you see the Beauty Bar where you can swatch, watch and play! The NYX Makeup Artists are on hand to answer any questions and best part?!!  They offer one on one lessons with a NYX Makeup Artist where you can learn pro tips and artistry tricks!  How fun is that!!?

NYX STORE OPENING

NYX Store Features:

  • Testers, Testers, Testers
  • Create your own eye shadow palettes
  • Take Home Foundation Samples
  • Digital Assistance with Product Scanners

TESTERS: When it comes to makeup we all want to test it before we buy it. Whether you want to see or feel the product or if you want to just see the shade on your lips the amount of testers available are endless.

NYX GOTCHA COVERED CONCEALER

DRUGSTORE BLUSH

SHADOW & LIP BAR: These walls will just take your breath away with the options of lip products and single eye shadows.  The Eye Shadow Bar offers single pans to fill in either a 4 pan palette or a 9 pan palette. With these prices you can not go wrong!

Single Shadows: $4.00

4 Pan Palettes: $12.00

9 Pan Palettes: $28.00

NYX EYESHADOW

TAKE HOME FOUNDATION SAMPLE: I think I was in such awe of all the beauty around me I totally forgot to do this!!! If you have been with me for a while you know I am not huge on Matte Foundation but for $7.50 I was curious and plus a girl can always just add in some liquid highlighter. This feature is something we only see at High End makeup stores and counters so in my opinion this is a game changer for affordable beauty.

See the foundation HERE at Ulta

Drugstore Foundation

PRODUCT SCANNERS: I absolutely loved this feature and had some much fun. If you follow me on Instagram, I did a full preview of this feature on my stories. You take a product, scan it and all the product details will show up. What the product does, how many shades are offered and customer reviews. You also get to see any social media pictures that have been tagged with that product.

Drugstore Makeup

I would highly recommend a visit to not only this store if you are in the Chicago area but if you have a free standing NYX Store near you!  With endless amounts of affordable products and in-store features you are sure not to leave empty handed, I know I didn’t!

What are some of your must have NYX Products? Have you been to a free standing NYX Store? Would love to hear your thoughts and experience below.

MUST HAVE DRUGSTORE PRODUCTS: The 10 Products You Need To Try Now!

It is no secret I love a fab find especially when its under $10 and from the drugstore. Out of this list only two are over $10 but trust me they are worth it! On Tuesdays on my Instagram I like to showcase 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 10 products are tried and true,  always in reach and in rotation. To see my other fab finds on Instagram use #10orlesstuesday to see my posts.

Drugstore Product List: (click product to shop)

  1. Milani Blushes: I love blush, like really really love blush. Milani Blushes are so affordable, come in multiple shades and have such pretty packaging. Who else is a sucker for classic pretty packaging? Shades I love and use most often are Rosa Romantica and Luminoso (see some Milani swatches HERE. They go on so smoothly and blend like a dream. Its like using a High End Blush.
  2. NYX Butter Glosses: If you are a gloss type of person and have not tried these you must! For under $5 and 34 shades to choose from you are guaranteed to find a shade or two, three or five lol They are very comfortable on the lips, not sticky and provide a nice amount of color. You can wear these glosses alone or over your favorite lipstick for an added pop of shine!
  3. L’Oreal Pro Glow Foundation: Want affordable foundation that will give you a beautiful dewy glow with medium coverage that looks like your skin? This is the one to try.  It is so versatile and has become a Holy Grail product.  I mix it with my moisturizer, use it alone or I will mix it with my matte foundations for a boost of hydration and glow. My skin is combination but I still prefer to be hydrated and will blot my T Zone when needed.  If you have dry skin you will love this foundation!
  4. Wet N Wild Color Icon Blush: For $2.99 this blush goes on like High End but will give you more money in your pocket for more makeup! Hehe!!! Two nude/peach shades that have stolen my heart are Apricot In The Middle & Rose Champagne
  5. Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer: 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.
  6. Maybelline Baby Skin Primer: Not only does this make my pores look smaller, my makeup lasts all day. I love this one specifically because its clear. Other pore filling primers are a nude color and I have found the others I have tried (Smashbox, Benefit and Dr. Brandt)  have clumped up on my skin. So this one is a winner for me and gets the job done!
  7. Milani Lipsticks: If you have been following me for a while you know MAC Lipsticks are my absolute favorite but when it comes to drugstore lipsticks Milani are the best. They are so close to MAC and I love finding MAC dupes with Milani Lipsticks. There are so many shades and different finishes to choose from. Pigmented, comfortable on the lips and no funky smells and or tastes. One thing I can not handle is a lipstick with a ton of fragrance in it. Who else is like that?
  8. Maybelline Fit Me Foundation – Smooth & Dewy: Another fabulous drugstore foundation that will leave you looking natural and dewy. I love natural makeup and have found so far these two to give me that at the drugstore. The coverage is medium and will last all day on your face.
  9. NYX Gotcha Covered Concealer:  This concealer is $5.99, full coverage, comes in 20 shades, infused with coconut oil so it gives the most beautiful dewy finish and is a dupe for Tarte Maracuja Creaseless Concealer. The ingredients are almost identical, trust me you can not go wrong with this one. It does not crease on me and I usually don’t need to set it (but I know that is a preference – see my Top Dewy Concealers HERE)
  10. L’Oreal Lash Paradise Mascara: One of L’Oreal’s newest products has me jumping for joy! If you are already a L’Oreal Mascara fan this most certainly is one you need to try. If you are new to L’Oreal mascara you wont be disappointed. The amount of length and volume that is achieved will have you putting all your other mascaras to the side. PS if you want to try a mascara primer I highly recommend the L’Oreal Voluminous Lash Primer.

Complexions & Cocktails: Best Matte Foundation?!!??

I had the pleasure to attend the Complexions & Cocktails event hosted by Bare Minerals to get a first look at their  NEW BarePro Matte Foundation. This event kicked off here in Chicago at the very trendy and stylish Cindy’s Rooftop inside the Chicago Athletic Hotel.   The event will be traveling to other states so stay tuned! While we sipped cocktails and ate delicious food we learned all about the NEW BarePro Performance Liquid Foundation   and got to preview other Bare Minerals products and new releases. This foundation comes with benefits that has me asking myself, can this be the best matte foundation?

Full Coverage Foundation
Bare Minerals Event Chicago

The Bare Minerals Makeup artists were on hand to give all the guests a personal shade match while we sipped on our cocktails.  I was very impressed with how fast the Makeup Artist found my shade. Shade 6 matched perfectly to my neck (the best way to find your match!). Once we were matched we were able to go over to what was my version of a candy store to receive our foundation with brush which was made for the foundation along with other Bare Mineral Goodies to try.

Per the Ulta Website: The bareMinerals Luxe Performance Brush is the perfect partner for the creamy texture of barePro Liquid Foundation. Its dense, tapered fibers mimic the shape of your fingertips to provide smooth, flawless coverage, while the compact head size allows for fast and easy blending around hard to reach areas like the nose and eyes.

Full Coverage Matte Foundation

Lets talk about the claims of this magical matte foundation:

  • Good For Your Skin
  • 24 Hour Wear
  • Breathable
  • Full Coverage
  • Naturally Matte Finish
  • Non Chemical SPF 20
  • Available in 30 Shades

Sounds amazing right? The way they are able to have a naturally matte finish is from the bamboo stem plant extract along with papaya enzymes that improve skins texture over time.  The foundation is “powered by Mineral Lock™ Long-Wear Technology that blends mineral pigments with lipids naturally found in skin to lock in transfer-resistant, color-true coverage” Aside from all of this its heat, water, humidity and sweat resistant which is something we need for Chicago Summers lol

In the next couple weeks I will be testing out the foundation so please stay tuned! I did play around with it the other day and to my surprise when I pumped it on my hand (yes it has a pump!! winner right there!) it was very thin and creamy and it covered my redness immediately. Needless to say I am very excited and intrigued by this foundation.

Matte Foundation

I received a ton of questions on Instagram about my makeup for the event so I wanted to give you a breakdown of the products I used. I kept my makeup minimal with a bold red lip. I knew I did not want to do a full coverage foundation as I wanted to be matched as accurate as possible. I was actually very pleased with the outcome and it lasted despite the fact that I forgot to put on primer. Oops! Best Matte FoundationFoundation Routine
