I saw this tag over at Cosmetic Caitlin and thought it would be pretty fun! I don’t own a lot of drugstore makeup, because I tend to give them away to people when I don’t like them or they don’t work for me. I think it’s also because I decided to go cruelty-free and didn’t really get a chance to try a lot of drugstore makeup. (Most of the brands here are not CF.)
Feel free to answer the questions in the comments or link me to your blog where you do the tag. 🙂
1. What is your favorite drugstore makeup brand overall?
Counting non-CF brands, I’ve got to say Revlon. My favorite cruelty-free drugstore brand is Snoe Beauty, and Wet n Wild.
2. What are your favorite face, cheek and lip products?
— Face: L’Oreal Lucent Magique Liquid Foundation in G4 or N5, Physician’s Formula Youthful Wear Cosmeceutical Youth-Boosting Powder in Matte Translucent
— Cheek: Revlon ColorBurst Mineral Blush in Roseberry
— Lip: Revlon Lip Butter in Sugar Plum, Maybelline Color Whisper in Lust for Blush, Maybelline ColorSensational Lipstick in Refined Wine
3. Least favorite product?
Most of the e.l.f. eyeshadows I’ve tried, their liquid eyeliner (it creased on me!) and their eye primer.
4. What is the best makeup bargain?
Wet n Wild eyeshadows, NYX in general, essence, L’Oreal Infallible eyeshadows, Maybelline Color Tattoos, and Fanny Serrano eyeshadows! I also really like the Marionnaud brushes.
5. What is your favorite underdog product? (Something you love that often gets overlooked?)
essence liquid eyeliner, Wet n Wild eyeshadows (at least where I’m from!), Fanny Serrano eyeshadows, Marionnaud brushes.
6. A drugstore product that is overpriced?
The price point of Revlon and L’Oreal in Manila is insane. The foundations are almost $20.
7. Show your best drugstore dupe(s)!
I actually don’t have a lot of dupes but I do have the famous MAC Satin Taupe vs. Wet n Wild Nutty and MAC Naked Lunch vs. Wet n Wild Walking on Eggshells Eyelid eyeshadows. Though they do not look too much like dupes on me:
8. Drugstore product that isn’t worth the hype?
I don’t particularly like the L’Oreal Shine Caresse, also the e.l.f. liquid eyeliner.
