Best Drugstore Palettes – Oldies but Goodies

 

Hey everybody! Today’s post I’m going to talk about my all time favorite drugstore palettes. As much as I love to talk about new product releases, I want to share with you some of my oldies but goodies favorites here.

Favorite Drugstore Palettes

In this post, I’ll be talking about the best drugstore eyeshadow palettes that I’ve been loving over the past and till this date. As you may notice on the title of this post, you’ll also find some wear and tear from these palettes. All color swatches shown below are without primer and is swiped on bare arms using only my fingers.

Let’s get started!

Milani Palette
US$11.00

First up is the Milani Everyday Eyes Palettes that I fell head over heels over with. As soon as I saw a beauty YouTuber talks about the new launch many moons ago, I started my quest to hunt it down. Soon enough, I found it at Walmart a week later and the rest is history. I’ve been loving this palette ever since. It’s a gorgeous palette! I really like that it has a bright orange shadow that will be perfect for summer wear. While the rest of the neutral colors you can wear them on your no- makeup makeup day.

If you haven’t tried this yet, I’m telling you to run to your nearest drugstore or Walmart and grab one today. For the price and quality, it’s drugstore thumb’s up from me! By the way, did I mentioned that it’s also cruelty free! Thought you might want to know.

elf palette
US$10.00

I’m a fan of e.l.f products and when I saw they launched their eyeshadow palette, I was in cloud nine. It’s rare to find all matte eyeshadows from a drugstore brand but e.l.f sure nails it with the e.l.f. Mad for Matte Palette that houses 10 eyeshadow shades.

Nicely pigmented shadows that’s easily blendable and natural looking but you still need an eyeshadow base or primer if you’re looking for a bold and intense matte finishing then look no further. Here’s something you would love for beginners.

WNW palette
US$6.99

Next in my list of favorite is another Wet n Wild Au Naturel Eyeshadow Palette. If you love natural eyeshadow palette with a hint of plum shadows, then you’re going to like this.

I really have nothing bad to say about the pigmentation as you can see them for yourself. You get a nice color selections of shimmer and matte shadows all in one palette. If it’s calling your name, then do yourself a favor and pick up one today.

cover girl palette
US$9.98 at Walmart

When it comes to Covergirl Eyeshadows Palette, I don’t have much luck with this brand. It’s either a hit or miss. But when I saw their new launch of Covergirl TruNaked Palette at my local drugstore – I was completely sucked in.

To be honest, I don’t put much expectation on this based on past history but I was totally taken a back when I did the color swatch. Turns out, the formula is super pigmented, smooth and soft! All the shades are so versatile that you’ll want to wear them everyday. Definitely give this palette a try!

wnw comfort zone palette
US$4.99

I save the best for last and it’s the Wet n Wild Comfort Zone Palette. It’s not a new release but rather an old palette that keeps me going back to wear it after all these years. The pigmentation is mind blowing. Super pigmented!!! Love that Wet n Wild products are not tested on animals and if you’re environmentally concern then you’re going to love this. I swear by it! Get yours NOW!

wnw comfort swatches

How gorgeous is it! Incredibly pigmented formula with the best affordable pricing only available at Walmart or your local drugstores. It’s definitely a winner in my book!

Well there you have it! My favorite drugstore eyeshadow palettes! Which is your favorite palette of them all?

This concludes my Best Drugstore Palette – Oldies but Goodies segment for this month and I hope to do a few more series of the same nature. Let me know what you think or if there’s any products you want me to feature them here on my blog. I love to hear what you think.

Cover Girl Super Sizer by Lashblast Mascara

 

 

I was at Walmart and spotted some new products by Hard Candy but I didn’t go home empty-handed. Ended up picking this bad boy with another makeup product which I’ll keep it a suspend until my next post. It’s going to be in first impression review post.

MASCARA BY COVER GIRL

When it comes to mascara there are so many different options and brands that sometimes make my head spin. I’ve heard so many mixed reviews on this Super Sizer Mascara by Cover Girl that put me on the curiosity spot where I want to try it out myself. So, I picked up this one and excited to share my thoughts and opinion with you.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

You can see on the back of the packaging an instruction on how to work with the brush. You suppose to twist the brush as you apply them.

Cover Girl usually has great mascaras and nice packaging. This one wow me instantly when it’s first launched but somehow I waited until I threw away my expired mascara after 3 months of usage.

THE SUPER SIZER BY LASHBLAST MASCARA in 805 BLACK 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Look how different the shape of the applicator with the small bristles compares to others. This mascara comes in a big tube with lots of formula for that price. I paid $5.98 at Walmart when it was on special. Cover Girl website selling for $6.85 and available in three different colors.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I love the unique shape of the brush and the rubber bristles. Brush has tiny/uneven bristles. It separates your lashes and does leave them clumpy when you first apply them but a minute later your lashes would look flawless. Makes them look full and long.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This is great for defying lashes. Perfect for lifting those thin dual lashes to thick beautiful ones. Keep in mind for this review that I have short and straight lashes, and this is for the waterproof version in Black.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Ok, so this is a tricky mascara to apply. It is very wet, so the first time I used it, I made a bit of a mess. Having said that, once you get the hang of application, this gives you some seriously dark eyelashes. The mascara held my curl, and didn’t smudge! Whew!

I wouldn’t want to look like this, if you know what I mean! Right!

by nick.com  What did you say about my eyes?

My verdict is that I like it but not love love if that make sense. I feel that this mascara needs more work to apply. I didn’t like it at first but once the formula settled it gives a good finishing look. Not so bad. The good thing I notice is that it doesn’t irritate my eyes and it’s waterproof. Yay!

What do you think of this mascara? Don’t forget to leave your comments down below.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read. ❤

Ready Set Gorgeous Foundation|Review

Hey guys!

Covergirl Ready Set Gorgeous is absolutely worth trying. True to its claim that this foundation is lightweight and blends easily into skin. Yay!!! Pretty awesome isn’t it. I did a previous post on top 5 new makeup collection – hit here.

cg readysetgorgeous foundation

I chose Covergirl Soft Honey in 220 and with net wt: 1 fl oz. Available in twelve pretty shades. This liquid foundation is oil free and won’t clog pores so it claims.

It provides medium coverage and when I apply it on the redness beside my nose area it covers very well. I don’t see the redness and skin looks awesome. I feel that it sets fairly quickly and it gives a natural soft matte finish. It’s smooth on skin and it feels lightweight when buffed in.

COVERGIRL gorgeous foundation

Well, since I have dry skin – I thought that this Ready Set Gorgeous can be a little bit matte-y for my skin type but after trying  it for more than a week it really works on me. So, I’m super happy that it doesn’t feel cakey or heavy but one word said it all – AWESOME!

The formula has an absorbing oil ingredient that helps to hold excess oil so skin looks less greasy. The upside is that this foundation doesn’t budge the whole time I was wearing them. Except that I see some emphasize of fine lines towards the end of the day. But with a little touch-up of setting powder your worries will be gone.

color swatch covergirl

Soft honey looks natural for my skin tone. It is also good for built-up if you need full coverage without looking cakey.

For only $7.99 a tube, I will go ahead and try as many color shades available (just kidding). The thing is that you won’t go wrong choosing the right shade. It comes in ranges from fair to medium skin tones. On more point is that this Covergirl foundation is fragrance free.

Overall, I have to say that I really like this foundation and if you’re on a budget why not pick up something that actually works on you. I’ll recommend this to friends and will sure to repurchase.

What do you think of this Ready Set Gorgeous foundation? Do you think it’s worth the hype? Let me know on the comment section below.

Thank you for taking the time to read.

100% More Volume Mascara

Hi guys, I got this wonderful Covergirl Lashblast Volume mascara from Target and I’m super excited to share what I’m going to review in this post.

covergirl lashblast mascara v covergirl mascara waterproof

Reason why I’m super excited was when I saw this mascara wand and it makes me want to pick it up. The packaging is nice where the wand is packed separatedly. I like the idea that the brush is visible. It’s selling for $6.99 at Target during their weekly flyer promotion. Sorry, I’m using the flyers from Target as the background.

Wonderful wand with soft like bristles.

I picked up this one in 825 Very Black (0.44 fl oz). It says here that “lashblast’s volume-boosting formula and brush are designed to leave you with a big, bold lash look”.

Enjoying and impressed with the wand applicator.. yeah!!!!

I tried it on and wow!! I love the wand that works so well and all I did was dip it half way and apply them on my lashline. There is no flaking and it has very minimal clumps. Mascara formula dries up instantly upon application on lashes.

The Covergirl lashblast mascara really impresses me. For a drugstore brand and price point, there is no dislike for this lashblast mascara. In fact, it’s just the opposite.

Looking Up view and Side view

See, my lashes looked more defined and has more volume in terms of thicker look. I did only one coat and it works wonder already and I love the effect of it. On top of that, it’s waterproof, so it can be worn all day without worrying about any smudges.

This Very Black color mascara makes eyelashes looking very natural. Will I recommend this, the answer is yes. Covergirl also has them in Brown , Black Brown and Black shades to choose from.

What color lashbast volume mascara you have or are your favorite? Comment below and please share you experience if you have tried it.

As usual, thank you for reading.
