PinkLouLou here, and as you know Miss Kori is still out of town. I was super flattered when she asked me to guest blog, and I immediately started racking my brain with possible topics. I kept coming back to makeup, go figure, HA!
I don't know if you are like me, but I have an addiction to a little store called Sephora. I heart makeup- like would probably spend my entire paycheck there if I could get away with it, but alas, then I could not eat for a month. SO I decided to start finding comparable products to some of my favorites, with a more reasonable price tag! I still get the good stuff, but recently I have been saving the goods for weekend nights, and using my drugstore finds during the week! I mean let's get serious, I am at work everyday, and unfortunately there is no need to impress any one in my office, HA!
I have actually found some great finds!
For starters, I LOVE makeup forever HD foundation. It is light, but still covers oh so smoothly. Love it. When I went to the beach a few weeks ago I ran out of my foundation and had to pick up some wherever I could find it. Insert Revlon Photo finish.
It feels JUST like the Makeup Forever HD foundation. I was so surprised, I literally have not bought foundation from a drugstore since I was in middle school I believe. So, just so you know, if you are in need of a cheaper, everyday foundation, I fully support this Revlon Photo finish! I have been wearing it a lot recently in pictures on my blog , and I bet you can't tell it's not MU4E! ;)
Next let's talk blush. Hands down the best blush IMHO, is NARS orgasm. Its glorious. Perfect shade for a natural, sunkissed, hint of golden sparkle glow. It's cheaper counterpart I actually discovered while doing a blog review for Mary Kay. Their mineral blush in shy blush is eerily similar to the coveted NARS orgasm shade. Genius I tell you!
The next two things are not replica products of anything, but just two LouLou drugstore must haves. I LOVE this mascara. People always ask if my eyelashes are fake, and no ma'am, they are mine! This stuff is so fantastic, but I will warn you if you like a traditional wand you might have trouble adjusting to this one as it is plastic. I was skeptical at first too, and then I became hooked.
And last but not least. It is summer. And I am always boppin' around from the pool, to the patio, to out on the town, and who DOESN"T love a lipsmacker lipgloss. So what if you feel oh so seventh grade whippin' out your pink lemonade chap stick. It keeps your lips soft and moisturized, and you don't have to worry in the wind about getting your hair blown in your sticky lipgloss! Perfect cheap summer thrill if you ask me.
Hope you enjoyed, and hopefully you found out something useful! Until next time, stay beautiful lovelies!
