Hey guys! So about three weeks ago I got a bunch of drugstore makeup products and I decided to write a review of these products!
I got two different products from Elf. The first was Powder Brush, the first Elf brush I’ve ever bought. For the price this brush is excellent. While this brush does a good good of applying powder there is nothing wow-ing about it. I mean it is just a powder brush! I am definitely willing to try other Elf brushes.
The other product I bought from Elf was their primer in Tone Adjusting Green. I get a lot of redness and acne on my checks so I thought this would be an interesting product to try. The key with this primer is to give it a minute to adjust before applying foundation over time. While it initially does a good job of covering up my redness, it does not last that long. It is a good primer but not a great colour corrector.
Next I got two products from Milani. First was their Rose Powder Blush. I thought it had picked the shade Coral Cove but I accidentally bought Tea Rose. While it was not the blush I wanted it still is beautiful! I heard great things about the Milani blushes and I agree with what everyone says! It is the perfect level of pigmentation where I do not have to be super careful when applying my blush. It builds and wears nicely. I’m definitely going to pick up the other shade I wanted!
The second Milani product is their Amore Matte Lip Cream in the shade Pretty. First thing to note is that the colours wear differently on the lips compared to in the tube. I found this shade looks neutral but wears cool tone on the lips. This is an okay liquid lipstick but not my favourite. It lasts a long time and feels comfortable but it makes my lips look very dry. It has a really nice scent though, like vanilla cupcakes! I will probably wear the liquid lipstick again but probably wouldn’t buy another one from their line.
Finally is my favourite product from this haul! The Fit Me Concealer by Maybelline. Since I bought this concealer it is the only one I have worn. It is creamy and very easy to blend out. I do need to set this concealer, but once I have it looks beautiful and lasts really well. I have dry under-eyes and this is one of the few concealers that I have tried that does not cling to my dry patches. My only issue is that the shade I pick matches my skin tone perfectly; so it looks nice for every day use but does not do much brightening under my eyes. I think I might pick up another shade!
And these are my thoughts on some drugstore products! If you guys have any drugstore recommendations let me know! Always willing to try new makeup!
