drugstore make-up favs

My sister-in-law recommended this Physician’s Formula Mineral Wear over on her blog, and after a few months of use I still really like it:

I still sometimes wear a cream foundation underneath the Physician’s Formula if I have a special event or something, but most days I just quickly brush this on and I’m good to go.   (Stephanie had previously used Bare Minerals and likes this brand better.) Runs around $10 bucks.
I’ve also added these two inexpensive (CHEAP!) drug store finds to my make-up routine and can give a thumbs up for both:
This primer cost a whopping $1.00 and was the product that was most recommended when I Googled “best drugstore eyeshadow primer.”  It goes on smooth and helps eyeshadow stay put thruout the day.  (Not as good as department store brands I’ve used, but for the price it’s pretty good.  FYI: It’s sheer and doesn’t really provide any color.)
I bought this cream liner in metallic olive and I really like it!  At only $3 bucks, I plan to purchase it in black as well.  I’ve never used a high end cream or gel liner so I can’t give a comparison – but it goes on very smooth over the primer and stays put!  
Find all these at Target or your favorite drugstore.
Any favorite drugstore brands to share?

  1. Loreal’s magically smooth souffle foundation: it is light as air and covers so many little flaws, and the translucide luminous powder. I just got this combo and now have to stock up on it for it’s eventual discontinuation.

  2. Oooooh! I have a few:
    Loreal extra collagen mascara. The best.
    And Eucerin redness relief face wash & Eucerin sensitive skin w/spf moisturizer.
    I’ve gone back to Bare Escentuals since moving to VA & combined with the Eucerin routine, I’ve said goodbye to my problem skin. Can you believe it? Even survived a pregnancy with no dare I say, great skin.
    Gosh, now I’ll get a zit. Watch!
