At the moment, I’m a total budget beauty! I’m slowly making my way into the big girl world of makeup: high end cosmetics. In the mean time, I don’t plan on letting up on the drugstore good times!
CoverGirl Lip Perfection Lip Pencils
The Rite Aid I raided had a very small selection of lip pencils. I was little disappointed but I did manage to spot three nice looking shades in the CoverGirl section.
These Lip Perfection pencils appear to be pretty nice. They swatched very smoothly and were impossible to remove without makeup remover. I had to scrub swatches off in the shower! I hope it has the same staying power on lips! They cost about $7 each.
Wet n Wild Color Icon Blushes
After seeing some swatches of these blushes I HAD to grab a couple. They were $3 each and totally steal! They feel really soft and are very pigmented!
Milani Illuminating Face Powders
These powders are just the CUTEST! Almost too cute to use! Milani claims these powders can be used as bronzer, blush, and/or highlighter. I think they may be too light for blush or bronzer. I think they’d make great highlighters!
Here’s some swatches!
