You all know I’m a big advocate for drugstore beauty brands. While I enjoy a department store splurge here and there, majority of my makeup routine is made up of products I purchase while I’m waiting for a prescription refill. So I’ve decided to start a new series here in October, where I showcase my three favorite drugstore makeup brands, and the 3 products I can’t live without. To kick things off, I’m talking about CoverGirl! I have very sensitive skin, so an oil free foundation is a must-have, and this “Ready Set Gorgeous” is something I’ve been wearing for almost a year now. Next up is their “The Super Sizer” mascara that blows any fancy beauty brands mascara out of the water…it’s SO good. I even wore it here without any eyeliner/help of a lash curler so you can see just how amazing it is. Lastly, you know I can’t resist a pretty lip, and a subtle shade like this Colorlicious “Craving Cranberries” gloss gives the perfect amount of shine and color, ideal for everyday wear. So tell me, what are your favorite drugstore beauty products? They may just be featured next!
If you’re an on the east coast, chances are you faced the rain, cold and wind brought by that little hurricane that came through. While majority of my weekend was spent indoors, Adam and I did manage to get out of the house to go to the movies (we saw The Martian and it was so good!). Now more than ever, is the time to snag some great outwear for the season so you don’t freeze when heading out, and this lightweight trench has been on repeat lately. The teal/gray-ish color feels fresh on these gloomy, cloudy days, and the oversized shape keeps my look not too stuffy.
