Nothing makes me happier than finding something at a low price that’s amazing quality. When I look at my makeup collection, I find that most of my favorite products are actually from the drugstore. The drugstore these days is more expensive than ever before and I honestly can’t be bothered to spend $15 on a product from from the drugstore that’s average when I can get amazing products for $10 or less.
The beginning of the new year is always flooded with beauty round up videos and blog posts. I honestly love reading and watching them because every product is an absolute obsession of the person sharing them. I haven’t done an end-of-year round up in years, but I am dying to share my 2016 favorites with you because I have fallen head over heels for some products and they are just so damn good.
I concocted a foundation cocktail a few months ago and it went so well that after not having the best of luck with the Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer, I thought I’d do some more experimenting. A concealer cocktail, if you will.
My everyday beauty drawer makes me so happy. It’s full of products that get so much love and perform so well, they’ve quite literally reached “Top Shelf” status. Those makeup butterflies seem to immediately drop dead when I look through the other drawers of my makeup collection and see products that are being neglected. For one reason or another, they aren’t my thing and the lay there amongst other products that just don’t quite cut it. Although they aren’t the best, they need love too and this is one of my many steps into making them work for me.
