Favorite Drugstore Makeup

In this video I show you my favorite drugstore foundations, blush, eyeshadow, eyeliner, lipsticks, lip balms, and more. Click here to view the video on YouTube with a complete list of products.

In other news, sorry for the trickle of posts in the past 2 weeks: still sorting out how to manage time as an overworked intern, and blog,Β and move into our new house (did I mention we closed on the house earlier this week??). Bear with me as we get past the growing pains of balancing an even crazier schedule than before!!

What areΒ your favorite drugstore products?

    Great video! I’ve heard about the Neutrogena foundation, but have yet to try it. They have great products I’ve tried in the past so perhaps I’ll give it a go. Thanks! Loved the video as well. πŸ™‚

    Maybelline mascaras are the best, my sis and I even did a comparison with diorshow we couldn’t see any significant difference. Great post πŸ™‚

      I agree, I love Maybelline mascara. I’ve use Full N Soft for so many years. From time to time I try another brand, or even an expensive brand, but always go back.

    great video! I am excited to try some of these! I love Loreal Voluminous Mascara, Loreal True Match concealer, and Sonia Kashuk (at Target) Bronzer too!

    I love the Maybelline Color Tattoos! They are really terrific. I noticed you said you couldn’t use eyeshadow primer with them. Have you tried Laura Geller’s Waterproof Eye Spackle? I swear by that stuff!!! A tube lasts forever and it definitely never pills, not even on the Tattoos. I think you’ll really like it. I bought mine on QVC πŸ™‚

    Congrats on the new house and thanks for the video!

    Mine would be the Monistat Chafing Relief Powder-Gel as a face primer. So cheap and good!

    Very fine. I saw your video. It is very fine. I like Revlon as my cosmetic brand.

  13. 07.09.2012 / 3:55 am

    I love the CoverGirl LashBlast Mascara and L’Oreal’s eyeliners. I haven’t found any I like better, and why pay three times the price for something I like equally?
    Except for lipstick, I usually don’t buy much from designer cosmetic brands.

    Great video,I like Revlon & Neutrogena products. Heard a lot about Lakme products, did anyone here tried Lakme products.

    I love getting the inside scoop on drugstore makeup! I tend to use higher-end products too, but the one drugstore item I can’t live without is L’Oreal Voluminous mascara in black with the curved brush! It makes amazing lashes!
    Congrats on the new house, Dr. B! So happy for you!

    I have recently become OBSESSED with the Lip Butter and that bouncy blush (which really is bouncy, its kind of weird! haha) But my favorite foundation that I’ve been using for years is this one from Maybelline (Dream Liquid Mousse): http://www.maybelline.com/products/83/face/foundation/dream-liquid-mousse/pure-beige/medium-2?shadeId=403 I’ve tried the other “mousse” products they have, the airbrush and the one in the tub, but the texture’s just not the same. This one though goes on SO well with just your hands, the coverage is really good but it still looks and feels super natural, which is what I like. It’s a good one!

    Thanks so much for this video. I have been planning to go to the drugstore totry and stock up on some makeup and this is certainly helpful.
    I would love it if you could do some videos on basic “make up how to” ie: applying eyeshadow, blush, foundation ( I dont even know what the purpose of it is!) for us makeup newbies! Thank you!

    Love the video.. I will try Rimmel foundation, I use Rimmel Blush on “Santa Rose’ and i must say its great πŸ™‚

    I’m so amazed at your time management abilities! It must be tough balancing a life, a blog, and a medical internship but you are doing so beautifully. I absolutely love this video as well, your recommendations on drugstore makeup have been really helpful. Next up on my list is the Rimmel foundation, I’m using L’Oreal True Match right now but have been looking for a new replacement. Thank you!

    Hi! Loved this video! I’m sure that you have done this before, but since I’m new to the site, I can’t be sure so I’ll go ahead and suggest anyway! It would be awesome if every now and then you did a “dupe” post and highlighted great drugstore (or just cheaper) dupes of high end products. Again, forgive me for suggesting if you already do this, it was just a though I had while watching!
    Keep up the wonderful work…this is such a fun site! πŸ™‚

    I am a huge fan of all the Neutrogena products, especially the face wash…I used to love Max Factor mascaras too, but now I live abroad and they don’t sell it here. Great vid!

    Wet N’ Wild is an underrated drugstore brand. It isn’t the highest quality, but it is pretty good if you want to try something new but not spend a lot. They have great eyeshadow selections. Milani is also pretty good for nail polish.
    Nice video! I really want to try Revlon’s lip butters, I’ve only heard great things about them.
