Last weekend I decided to stop by my local CVS to pick up a few things I needed to stock up on (the usual cotton swaps and toothpaste), but as I was walking pass the beauty aisle I noticed that they were having a Buy One Get One 50% Off sale on most of their products. It's sales like this that makes picking up the drugstore products even more worth it.
I am very particular when it comes to the drugstore products. I love saving money and finding great drugstore dupes for more affordable prices. However, when the drugstore products just don't live up to their claims and the products are just going in the trash (along with the money you spend on it), I rather just invest in a product I know that works.
However, there are drugstore products out there that I am a fan of, and ones that are more affordable than their higher end competitors while also living up to their claims. So I decided to pick up the following:
Maybelline Color Tattoo Cream Shadows: Pomegranate Punk, Gold Shimmer, Bold Gold, Fierce & Tangy
Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick by Kate Moss: #12, #11, #06
I love the quality of the Maybelline Color Tattoo Cream Shadows because they are very comparable to the MAC Paint Pots and other cream shadows and bases on the market while still being affordable. They have a great color selection, and they also have just released a limited edition line of colors that are just gorgeous.
I am also a fan of drugstore lipsticks, especially Revlon, but I have never tried the Rimmel line. However, after reading reviews and swatching around, I was quite impressed with the colors and the formula.
Swatches and reviews of the products will be coming soon...
