Thoughts for Thursday: My Favorite Drug Store Beauty Products

I think all of us have our drugstore beauty products that we can't live without.  I use a combination of drug store and department store products but I have some drug store products that prove to be tried and true that I keep coming back to. 

Here are my favorites:

Drugstore Favorites

Neutrogena Healthy Skin Enhancer- this is my go-to in the summer. It's lightweight and gives you the perfect amount of tint and coverage for hot days at the pool or beach.

Elf Studio Concealer- I just randomly picked this up at Target the other day and I love it. My circles are big and dark and this does a great job covering them up without being too heavy.

Elf Bronzer- my sister hooked me on this bronzer this summer and I think it's my new go-to. It gives the perfect amount of color without looking like I'm trying too hard to be tan. More of  a sun kissed glow.

Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque- I know a lot of people love this but I swear by this mask and even use it for spot treatment when I have a breakout.  For $3.99 this cannot be beat!

Loreal Colour Riche Fairest Nude- Another summer favorite I love love love this color and it's perfect (especially in the summer) for giving your lips the  right amount of color without being too much.

Tweezerman Tweezers- Best tweezers ever. Hands down.

Yes to Tomatoes Daily Cleanser- I just started using this line of products because my skin has been horrible over the past few months. I love that they are all natural and after only a few weeks I can already see a big difference in my  skin.

Maybelline Lash Stiletto and Maybelline Lash Sensational- I have tried hundreds of mascaras and I always always come back to Maybelline. I don't know what it is but they are the only ones that work for me.  I use a lengthening and a thickening and the two above are my current favorites.

Loreal Sublime Glow- Best self tanning lotion ever!! I swear by this stuff and use it all winter long. It's the best gradual tanning lotion out there that gives me the perfect  amount of color without looking orange or fake. Bonus- it smells wonderful!

Neutrogena Oil Free Eye Makeup Remover- I have yet to find another drug store eye makeup remover that can even come close to this one. If I can't have my Lancome then this is the next best thing.

Essie Nailpolish and Opi Nailpolish- the fact that I can get some of my favorite colors in Target sometimes makes the trip that much more exciting!

  9. I was just asking for lipstick recs! Thanks. I just picked up the FLOWER brand (By Drew Barrymore) Cream to Powder Blush (It was 7.99) and am digging it!

  10. I totally need to grab those tweezers...mine suck! I totally agree on the eye makeup remover and have used that for years. I actually found an off brand I think at CVS that was pretty darn good too. My mom has always used vaseline and while that might work it was just too much grease for me!

  11. Awesome picks! I love that ELF bronzer, and I'm super intrigued by the Sublime Glow - I'm going to have to pick that up :)
