Face of the Day With Some Drugstore Favorites

There is so much good makeup to find at the drugstore these days.  I decided to use nothing but some of my drugstore favorites today.  The hardest part was choosing which favorites to use!

Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation -- I like the fluid texture and light-medium coverage of this foundation.
Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Concealer -- This has a lovely light texture, but covers well, and it doesn't settle into my wrinkles.
Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder -- Non-powdery and non-cakey.  Important qualities for a face powder.

Milani Illuminating Face Powder in Amber Nectar -- I use this as a bronzer.  It gives a lovely glow to the skin.
Milani Baked Blush in Corallina -- A beautiful coral blush.  Of note: this is sparkly.  But I like sparkly stuff.  It's also really pretty in the pan.

Wet 'n' Wild Petal Pusher Palette -- I adore purple eyeshadows, so this is right up my alley.  The texture of the shadows is quite soft.  I used the "definer" shade from the left side as the only color on my lids for this look.  It's more sheer than the other shadows in the palette, but it's still pretty.  It's a sparkly bluish purple.
Physicians Formula Eye Booster 2-in-1 Lash Boosting Eyeliner + Serum -- I like the calligraphy-style brush on this liquid liner.
L'Oreal Voluminous Butterfly Mascara -- My favorite mascara at the moment.  It gives lots of length to my lashes.

NYX Lipliner Pencil in Nectar -- Nectar is a very pretty, slightly metallic coral.  It's fairly creamy for a lip pencil.
Neutrogena MoistureSmooth Color Stick in Fresh Papaya -- This chubby lip crayon is quite moisturizing and almost balm-like, smells nice and fruity, and gives a good dose of color to the lips. Fresh Papaya is a shimmery peachy coral.  One of my favorite lipsticks ever!

What are some of your drugstore favorites?


  1. pretty! I love Rimmel products. I recently got the Stay Matte powder but notice that they are ALL really light! Is that the case or just at the stores ive gone to?

  2. I think they may have a larger selection of colors online (I've only seen 4 available in the stores where I shop), but they all seem pretty light. Kind of crummy for non-fair skinned people. Even the transparent (which I use) seems to have a little tint.

  3. I got the darkest one I could find and its still pretty seems more like asetting powder than for coverage

  4. Yeah, I use it as a setting powder. I do wish it had more coverage, though.

  5. Petal Pusher is gorgeous on you, Ingrid! You wear purples so well. That palette is on my wishlist for sure :)

  6. Thanks, Jennifer! It's a great palette for purple lovers like me.

  7. I see a few of my drugstore favorites here as well! I don't have WnW Petal Pusher though, and as a fellow purple fan I'm ashamed. The "definer" shade/mystery purple is really flattering on you!

  8. Go get Petal Pusher right now. I'll wait. :P :)

  9. Your lashes look great. I passed on the Butterfly mascara but maybe I need to look at it again. Love my Rimmel Stay Powder . :-)

  10. Thank you, Kimmy! I like the Butterfly mascara, but with mascara, what works for one person may not work for the next! Kinda frustrating in that way.

  11. I'm not sure why it took me so long to find your blog on Bloglovin! I was following you with Google Reader but when I made a Bloglovin account everything got all mixed up but I've found you and it's all good! Love this look, especially the Wet N' Wild palette! I actually don't have any of these 8 color palettes, but I need to get one really soon!

  12. No problem girl! I've heard the Comfort Zone one is nice, but I think I'd actually prefer to have the purple one because one of my school's colors is purple and it'd great for game days and stuff

  13. Ohhh then Petal Pusher is the perfect palette! (See what I did with all those "p"s?) :) I love sports-themed makeup colors, too.

  14. Lol points for alliteration!
