The one with the drugstore makeup.

current drugstore favorites

Today I'm talking about some of my current drugstore favorites. Just like in Sephora and the department stores there are hit-and-miss products, but thanks to online reviews it's a lot easier to find quality, inexpensive makeup.

Olive Martini

  • Maybelline Limited Edition Fall 2012 Fashion Week Eyestudio Quad in Olive Martini: This little quad is seriously stunning. I love applying the deeper of the two greens all over my lid and blend it up. Depending on the light is can look green, brown, or burgundy.

Sonia Kashuk Instructional Eye Palette

  • One thing that drugstores don't usually do is matte eyeshadows, so I was excited to see this Sonia Kashuk Instructional Eye Palette in Eye on Neutral. The eyeshadows are very nice quality. This is a great palette to use in conjunction with shimmery shadows (like the Olive Martini quad).

essie butler please

  • Essie's Butler Please is a vibrant cobalt blue that dries to a semi-matte rubbery finish. I applied a shiny topcoat over two layers of polish, since that's my preferred finish.

  1. The Sonia Kashuk palette looks really good! I love wearing natural, matte colors for everyday, and I love all the colors there. And love that blue nail polish!
    Sincerely, Sara

  2. Those eye shadows look right up my alley. I like to be pretty basic (that matte palette looks perfect), but everyone needs a little shimmer, right? I may have to branch out and give these a try.
    Thanks for sharing your finds!

  3. I am a matte shadow kinda girl. I need those! Thanks, Ash.


  4. I need that nail polish! That's the perfect blue!
