April Beauty Favorites by Liz

I’m so excited to be writing my first blog! I am challenging myself to step outside of my comfort zone this year, so thank you for joining me on my journey and thank you to Rachel for giving me this opportunity!

Anyone who knows me knows that I am a beauty junkie and I thought it would only be fitting to share some of my favorite drugstore products with you. Let’s get into my April favorites!

Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation– This is a lightweight formula for normal to oily skin that dries down to a matte finish. Easy to blend out and buildable. I love how this makes my skin look and feel. Price: $7.99

Pur Miracle Mist Hydrate and Set Spray– I know this really isn’t a drugstore item but it is so good that I had to mention it. This spray is amazing! I use this in my morning and night routine before my moisturizers. It sets beautifully into the skin and feels great! Price $18

L’Oreal Voluminous Original Mascara – I have been using this mascara since the beginning of time and no matter how many I try, I keep going back to this. This coats my lashes without getting clumpy and doesn’t flake on me during the day. More importantly, it doesn’t irritate my eyes! Price $7.99

Rimmel Eyebrow Pencil– I love this product! The pencil itself is easy to work with and not waxy. The pigmentation is great, it is easy to use and the price is fantastic! If this pencil is ever discontinued, I am in some serious trouble. Price $3.49

Wet N Wild Liquid Catsuit Matte Lipstick (Rebel Rose) – For me, this is my perfect “nude” shade. The applicator is ideal for applying the color and this has a nice matte finish that isn’t drying. This formula is so light that sometimes I forget that I have it on! Price $4.99

Maybelline Fit Me Concealer– The coverage that this concealer gives is amazing. It is so good that I’ve been known to wear just this with powder on a daily basis. I would compare it to MAC’s Pro Longwear Concealer. I tend to mix shades to find my perfect mix. Price $5.49

    Love these picks! Very budget friendly, yet the references to some of the more pricey brands gives a good gauge of the quality. PS, I too love the Maybelline fit concealer, the coverage is very good! I look forward to reading more!
