Drugstore Makeup Haul + Review

When you buy a bunch of makeup to do a haul and then totally forget to post about it (haha oops)! So back in October I bought a bunch of new drugstore makeup. Now most of it is not new anymore, but I can give a pretty good review on these products!

First I decided to repurchase the Neutrogena Hypdo Boost Gel Cream with SPF 15. I have enjoyed this moisturizer in the past so I decided to buy it again. I have oily skin so the gel formula is much better for my skin type.

Next I got the Milani Make It Last Setting Spray. I have been trying to get this setting spray for so long, it was always sold out at my local drugstore. I was finally able to get my hands on it and I’m really happy with it! It does a great job at setting my makeup and making it looking very matte. A nice drugstore alternative to the Urban Decay All Nighter.

Next from Maybelline I got the Fit Me Loose Setting Powder. This is a nice, smooth setting powder. The only issue I have is that there is no transculent shade. For some reason I decided to get Light Medium, which matches my face but is too yellow to go under my eyes. Overall it’s a good powder, I just wish I had got a different shade.

I got two different lippies in a similar formula. First I got the Covergirl Melting Pout Liquid Lipstick in Gel-ful. The second I purchased was the Maybelline Color Jolt in Stripped Down. Of the two I prefer the Maybelline one. It is much more pigmented, lasts longer and is much more comfortable to wear. I found that the Covergirl one was much more likely to smudge all over the place. As well, the Maybelline is much more a nude while the Covergirl one is more pink.

Next I got the NYX HD Concealer in Beige. I really like the formula of this concealer. It is creamy and blends out easily. I would say that it is medium coverage – it does a good job of covering up my acne but it does not completely cover my dark circles under my eyes. I have the shade Beige which would nicely under my eyes when I was tan but is now too yellow since I am back to being pale! But it still works on the rest of my face.

My drugstore has always had a really small selection of Wet n Wild products, but has recently expanded! I was able to find the Wet n Wild PhotoFinish Foundation and their Megaglo Highlighting Powder. I got the shade Soft Beige in the foundation and Precious Petals in the highlight. I really like the foundation! I have been wearing it almost very day since I got it. I has a nice medium-to-full coverage and blends out easily. It looks nice with a brush or a sponge. Now that my tan has faded I could probably use a lighter shade, but I just mix it with a paler foundation and it still works nicely. I really like how it has a paddle applicator because it makes it easy to apply. I am also very happy with the highlighter! The shade Precious Petals isn’t like anything else I own – it’s a peachy-champagne colour which I really like on my skin. It’s not as pigmented as my Becca highlighters, but for a drugstore highlight it is really easy to build up to a nice glow. I would definitely recommend both of these products! And for my Canadian friends, I found them at Rexall Pharma Plus.

And that is it for my drugstore makeup haul! I really like do drugstore makeup hauls because they are much cheaper than Sephora haha! Let me know your thoughts on these products and any recommendations you guys have 🙂
