Drugstore Favorites - Maybelline Fit Me Concealer






Hello everyone!
The drugstores have always had a vast selection of fantastic & affordable concealers. I think I may have found my holy grail!

I'm surprised I liked this as much as I did as I've tried both versions of the Fit Me Foundation (hydrate + smooth / matte) and wasn't really a fan of either finish. Naturally I expected to hate the corresponding concealer. Boy, was I wrong. 

It's lightweight but covers imperfections beautifully and blends effortlessly into your skin. It leaves you with a natural looking finish, not matte but not dewy either. I use this on my under eyes and the only downfall is that one coat is not quite enough to cover them but this concealer has no issues when building up for more coverage, I'd say it's buildable to about medium coverage but anything after that is prone to caking up and creasing especially in such a delicate area.

I wear this daily through my eight hour work day and have yet to notice creasing in my fine lines nor does it dry out the skin. For me because I have such dry skin I need my concealers to be light and non drying because no one wants their under eyes looking like crepes.

This is my second tube and I will continue to purchase it over and over again.


What's your ride or die concealer?

Easy To Wear - MAC Patisserie




Hey loves!

MAC's lipstick in Patisserie (Lustre Finish) is the perfect every day nude.
It's a sheer finish that glide effortlessly onto the lips leaving you with a my lips but better color. It does contain tiny flecks of shimmer which create a glossier look on the lips which isn't something I normally go for. Being a neutral nude it pairs well with almost any makeup look you create. If you're looking for something for an every day lip that's light and easy to apply Patisserie is a great option!


What is your go to nude?

Rimmel #INSTAFLAWLESS Primer



 Hello everyone!

I feel like I'm going to be looking for that perfect primer forever. For the longest time I've been using the Nivea Men's Shave Balm (it lasts forever) but it finally jut reached it's end and I wanted to give something new a try.

While I was out at Wal-Mart I spotted this bad boy at the end of the aisle. The #instaflawless collection by Rimmel is brand new so I thought why not grab something that I needed to test out.

 I bought the primer in "clear" but I believe they have a tinted one as well in light/medium & dark. Although it comes out of the tube as a white cream when rubbed into the skin it disappears instantly.
The Insta Flawless primer claims to brighten skin tone & provide a natural looking glow.


Upon first application I didn't notice any brightening effect on the skin but it did create a beautiful natural glowing base. It's not a pore filling primer but it  left my face as a smooth canvas prepped for foundation. This works wonderfully under moisturizer and isn't drying! I have such a tough time trying to find a primer that doesn't leave me skin crying for hydration so I'm thankful to have found one that keeps the moisture locked in. 
In terms of makeup wear it kept my makeup in place as long as any other primer I've used, a good 8-9 hours.

It's a great & affordable primer that I'd happily purchase again. Don't get me wrong there are A LOT of primers out there and I've yet to even dip my toe into the ocean but this one may become a favorite of mine.

What's your ride or die primer?
