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!

8. Milani Color Statement Lip Liners: (Shades: Nude, Spice & All Natural) Price: $4.99 If you want dupes for MAC lip liners well then here you go! Three perfect nude shades that go on smooth and are super pigmented! It is simple, you got to try these!

9. Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define Full Coverage Concealer: PRICE: $7.00 If you like a full coverage and a matte look for your concealer you do not want to miss out on this one! See swatches of the full line and all the details HERE.

10. Colourpop Lux Lipstick in Shade Tip Toe: PRICE: $7.00 The lux lipstick range has multiple finishes and tons of shades to choose from. This one specifically is a more cool toned nude and it has been my GO TO!!!

11. L’Oreal Glotion: PRICE: $14.99 Last but certainly NOT least! If you follow me on Instagram you will consistently see me posting about this! I use it as a glowy base, I mix it in my foundation and moisterizer! You name it I have used it for any way to glow! It comes in 4 shades and is worth the higher drugstore price tag. TRUST ME! See swatches HERE.

L’Oreal Glotion: Your new drugstore highlighter

L’Oreal just came out with a ton of new highlighter products and I am living for it! One product that grabbed my attention right away is the L’Oreal Glotion. A natural glow enhancer. Sounds perfect right? Since I am into liquid products a lot as of late I wanted to test the glotion out first.  All of the product claims scream versatile and I love nothing more than a product that can do multiple things. You get more bang for your buck and lets face it, its just better that way. Loreal Glotion is said to instantly hydrate and give you an all over fresh and natural glow. You can wear it alone, before or after makeup and can use for spot highlighting on the face.

L'Oreal Glotion

Product Info:

  • Sold HERE at Ulta and HERE at Target
  • $11.99 – $14.99 ( target wins with the cheaper price!!! )
  • 4 shades (fair, light, medium, deep)

I grabbed the shade light and added  a small amount all over my face. You do not look like the tin man. The glotion seriously gives a beautiful natural radiance. I added on some of my favorite mascara L’Oreal Lash Paradise, then I spot concealed with  NARS Concealer and added on some gloss. I had the perfect no makeup, makeup look.  Whether you want to wear it alone or add in a drop to your favorite foundation you will not be mad about it.  Natural radiance is in style all year round and with 4 shades these are going to work on all skin tones!

Swatches:

Top To Bottom (Fair, Light, Medium, Deep)

L'Oreal Glotion
L’Oreal Glotion not blended. Shades Top to Bottom: Fair, Light, Medium, Deep

L'Oreal Glotion
L’Oreal Glotion Shades Top To Bottom: Fair, Light, Medium, Deep

 

If I had to compare them to a higher end product I would say MAC Strobe Cream. However strobe cream is not like a tint. There is color infused indeed but the L’Oreal Glotion delivers an illuminating color tint, MAC strobe cream does not give your skin a tint of color. If you have been wanting to try a liquid highlighter that can be used in multiple ways and want to try at a lower price tag these are a must!

NEW Pixi + Aspynovard Glow-y Powder: Review & Swatches

The New Pixi Highlighter / Cheek Powders  are apart of their blogger collaborations they recently launched. Lifestyle Blogger Aspyn Ovard created three gorgeous Glow-y Powders for all skin tones and the best part is you can get them right at your local Target!  Pixi Beauty explains “these velvety soft highlighter adds a hint of glow,creating a luminous effect. Natural mineral powder hydrates and reflects light to brighten complexion” I could not agree more. Pixi Beauty has a way of creating products that give you a very natural no makeup, makeup kind of look. I am loving everything I have been trying and these Glow-y Powders are no exception! Get ready to glow on a budget! Look at this pigment!!

Pixi Highlighter

These are the first highlighters and powders I have ever tried that give me the same feeling as BECCA Cosmetics Highlighters. If you have been following me for some time you know that says a lot because to me there are really no comparisons to BECCA highlighters. These have that buttery smooth feel to them with absolutely no chalkiness or glitter. Its a beautiful subtle glow that can be used for day or layered at night for that extra glow we all secretly want. Or is that just me? lol Notice on the brush how you can see the product, that is a must for me when it comes to highlighters.

Pixi Highlighter

Product Information:

  • 3 Shades Available –  Rome Rose, London Luster, Santorini Sunset
  • Available at Target and Pixibeauty.com
  • Retail for $16.00 (USD)

I know $16 may seem like a larger amount for a drugstore product however the pan sizes are big and when I say these are high end products at the drugstore they are! The Strobe & Sculpt brush in this collaboration is also equally fabulous and I highly recommend it. The brush was designed by Youtuber Maryam Maquillage  (stay tuned as I will be giving full review of the brush and Strobing and Bronzing palette soon)

Pixi Highlighter
Shades Top to Bottom: London Lustre, Santorini Sunset, Rome Rose

London Lustre Highlighter: light golden shimmer

Santorini Sunset Highlighter: golden peach shimmer

Rome Rose Blush: peachy pink with gold shimmer

Pixi Highlighter
Shades Top to Bottom: London Lustre, Santorini Sunset, Rome Rose

Santorini Sunset won my heart immediately and Rome Rose I can not wait to mix it with some nude blushes for the summer time. What do you think? Have you tried these yet? Would love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!!

NEW Skin Kiss: Makeup Revolution Highlighter

Its $10 Or Less Tuesday and I am so exited to talk about the New Skin Kiss Makeup Revolution Highlighter collection that is sold exclusively at Ulta Beauty.  $10 or less Tuesday is such a fun day for me as a beauty blogger. I truly love finding affordable makeup. Even if you have a bigger budget who doesn’t love a good find for less money?!!? I know I do! I grew up on drugstore makeup and even though I do love my higher end products sometimes drugstore products are just as good if not better! I love a good highlight especially when its a natural look, something I can wear daily or even layer for a bigger pop for a night out!

These highlighters are are described on the Ulta Website: “Kiss skin with a healthy-looking glow! Makeup Revolution’s Skin Kiss is a crushed pigment highlighter that brightens and adds a natural touch of illumination throughout the year”

Product Details:

  •  $9.00
  •  Three shades available (Peach Kiss – Ice Kiss – Golden Kiss)
  •  Pan Size is very big! So not only are these affordable but you are getting a lot of product

Makeup Revolution Highlighter Review

Makeup Revolution Highlighter - Skin Kiss - Peach Kiss

As I swatched them they felt pretty good. I am not a fan instantly when a highlighter feels hard or gritty. Does that make sense? Anyone else feel this way? Honestly I think I am spoiled with BECCA Highlighters because those are like butter and if we are going to talk about favorite of all time they are BECCA for me.  These are indeed soft. At first I was not sure if they seemed too glittery or chalky but as I swatched more and tried them on, they are not. It is indeed a nice glow that can be subtle for everyday or built up for a night out. These are finger swatches and I did not need to press hard for pigment.
