Products I Live By: Part 2

So I promised to do a Products I Live By post containing my favorite makeups, and it's here! Once again, all drugstore products. I'm not a makeup enthusiast, nor do I have the pockets to provide myself with MAC and Chanel beauty products. So you can, once again, find all of these things in your local drugstore, or my personal addiction, Target.

E.L.F. Moisture Care lipgloss is super shiny and not sticky, which I love. I'm not sure how well it stays put throughout the day because I layer it along with some of my other favoirte glosses. Some of which I couldn't find the proper pictures for. I'll just tell you what they are though:
ELF Hypershine lip gloss in Blossom
Rimmel Vinyl Gloss in Rhthym
Rimmel Sweet Jelly lip gloss in Candy Floss
All together (I know it sounds like a lot, but its not) these lip glosses stay put for most of the day. And since I like to touch up my lip gloss, I find it hard not to reach in my bag and retouch during the day.

My skin loves this product! It's Biore Shine Control Moisturizer. It's oil free which is perfect for my extra, ridiculously oily skin especially in the winter months. Even with overly oily skin, you still should moisturize it, and avoid alcohol based toners and products at all costs! They'll strip your skin and make it go into oil producing overdrive. That's why I keep my skin happy with this moisturizer. It's super light, it smells great, and it takes no time to dry. I use it uner my makeup all the time and it helps a lot.

CoverGirl Wetslicks Fruit Spritzers are great! Very sheer color, great smelling, and a pretty good lasting wear. It feeds my lip gloss addiction too. It's kind of hard for me to find around my area though, so I treasure my little tube. This gloss is great layered or by itself...and it tastes good. Yum lol.

CoverGirl Lash Blast is the newest mascara on the market. The drugstore market that is. Anyway, the brush is something new that I haven't seen before, chubby with little plastic bristles. It claims to give you a blast of dramatic lashes, and for me it does. I went seeking for it after I read a review on Makeup Bag a few weeks ago, and already I love it to death. You have to know how to finesse this mascara though, it had a tendency to clump on me, so I just wiped away the excess before I coated my lashes.

I seriously hope they never discontinue this moisturizer or I will die! Dramatic enough for you? Boots Botanics Fresh Faced Tinted Moisturizer is so perfect for me. Especially since I have no real technique to applying foundation. Like I said, I'm not too huge on makeup, but I do like it a lot. This moisturizer is very, very light and it gives me sheer coverage that just gently evens out my skin tone when my face is acting crazy (which is often). It's not greasy, or oily, and it stays put. Blends perfectly too. I use it almost everyday because besides evening me out, it's good for your skin. I use this in addition to Boot's Lighter Than Air loose translucent powder to control my shine factor. I couldn't find the loose powder anywhere for some reason though. I hope they dont plan on snatching it off the shelves. I love it too much! Just a light dusting takes away all the shine and aides in evening my skin tone out.

NYX Pearl Shadow. This stuff is the best. It goes on so silky smooth and it stays put all day, never creases on me. Now I don't go for this blue hue, I use Gold Pearl, or Charcoal on the regular. It shimmers and gives you a subtle color that highlights your eyes. People always compliment me when I wear this shadow. I think its perfect for beginners, because its what I first started out on, and I'm still using it religiously. I normally get it at my local beauty supply store. No, not Sally's, but a beauty supply store that's very local lol. NYX has great products for low prices, and they're quality too. This is the only shadow I've used that doesn't fade or crease during the day.

Once again, feel free to share your fave makeup I can go try them out!
Stay beautiful ladies,

Thanks for this post! I've been wanting to try that CG lash blast for a minute. I think I am going to do it now. What color did you get in the wetslicks lip gloss?

The CG LashBlast is great, just make sure to dab the excess off first to avoid clumping. For the CG wetslicks, I usually buy guava splash, it compliments my natural lip color very well.
