Heyyyy my loves!
I’m back with a new post talking about NEW drugstore makeup!!!
I’m so excited to share with you my thoughts on these products, as you know I live for drugstore makeup. The drugstore has stepped their game up hardcore and are making really amazing quality products at a low price, some being even better than high end products, I know right?! Unbelievable!!! There has been so many new products releasing that I want to try them all but I do buy products that I would actually use as I do purchases all of these products with may own money. Let’s get into the makeup shall we?!
Loreal has dropped NEW Glow products, I was super excited as you all know I love a good highlight especially a good affordable highlight like yes ma’am!!! I did not try out the entire line however I picked up most products.
- Loreal True Match lump Glotion Natural Glow Enhancer- $14.99
This product comes in 4 shades( Fair,Light,Medium and Dark) I got the shade Medium. This product claims to instantly hydrate and aluminize the skin, perfect to wear under or over makeup, and gives an illuminating color tint for healthy radiant skin. I really like this Glotion!!! I have dry skin so I love illuminating products especially during this time of year, it gives you a pretty, healthy glow and doesn’t make your face look or feel greasy or oily. I feel like this is a dupe for MAC Strobe cream for half the price which is amazing!!! It comes in a squeeze tube so it does have a hint of color however when you play it to the face it just gives you a gorgeous light from with in glow. It doesn’t disrupt my foundation or concealer, what I really like about this product is that you can wear it under your makeup, on the highest points of the face to highlight or on no makeup days, it just makes your skin glow and its so gorgeous!! If you love to glow like I do then I def recommend this product!!
- Loreal True Match Lumi Glow Amour Glow Boosting Drops-$14.99
This product comes in 2 shades (Daybreak and Golden Hour) I picked up the shade Golden hour as Daybreak is more of a cool tone pink and I personally gravitate towards more golden champagne highlights. It claims to illuminate the skin to give a dewey look, can be worn on it’s own, or mixed in with your skincare or foundation to customize your glow complexion.
So I’m just going to lay it out there, I’m not a fan of this product…at all! When I saw this product I thought ooohhh maybe a dupe for the CoverFX Custom Enhancer Drops, since that product is pretty pricey. However I tried to use this product as a liquid highlight and when I applied it to my face not only did it take off my foundation underneath, I had a glittery mess on my cheekbones. This product has more glitter than shimmer, which I’m not a fan of at all. I gave it another shot and it still showed up super glittery, like chunky glitter. Unfortunately, this product is not worth the money in my opinion and will be returning.
- Loreal Infalliable Pro Glow Lock Primer- $12.99
This primer claims to prime, perfect and illuminate the face while hydrating the skin for a better makeup application. It leaves skin with a healthy, radiant glow that lasts all day.
So I’ve been trying out this product for almost 2 weeks now and OMG I love it!!!
You know I’m all about hydration during the winter season, Really?! Who amI kidding? Seriously I need hydration in my life everyday, but I love hydrating primers for my dry skin it makes my makeup go on smooth without it looking caked or dry. Most illuminating primers have a sheen to them but what I love about this primer is that it doesn’t have a sheen its a slight pink color but it illuminates by brightening the face. I do agree it is hydrating to your skin, it’s not the best primer for filling in pores however it still did the job as I didn’t use a pore filling primer over it and my makeup looked great! I definitely noticed that my foundation lasted longer and I dint have any fading, my foundation truly stayed on my face and I typically wear my makeup all day long like at least 7+ hours. I will say there aren’t really any primers that I like for the drugstore, I typically stick to my tried and true high end primers but I really love this primer and it is so worth the money!!! I do recommend this product if you have dry, normal or combo skin, I would be cautious for oily skin as I would recommend a mattifying primer. LOVE IT!
- Maybelline Total Temptation Eyebrow Definer Pencil-$7.99
This pencil comes in 4 colors (Blonde,Soft Brown,Medium Brown, and Deep Brown) I went with the shade Deep Brown. So this brow pencil totally reminded me of the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Definer. It has the same shape and the same angle as the Anastasia brow definer, the spool is so different compared to the Anastasia. I actually fell in love with this product and is now my favorite brow product from the drugstore, maybe even my favorite overall. The color matches great, it’s not too stiff, not really waxy, more creamy but not too creamy, if this is making any sense at all but hopefully you catch my drift. What I love is that it literally takes me like 2 minutes to do my brows, and I love that you can create a soft, natural brow or a more dramatic brow. I actually really like the spool despite the weird short shape it has. It comes through my brows nicely and evenly distributes the product. I just really really love this brow product and I hope Maybelline comes out with more shades to cater to more hair colors because this brow pencil looks so bomb, your eyebrows will be on fleek girl!!!
- Maybelline Master Prime Hydrate and Smooth Primer-$9.99
This primer claims to help smooth and even out the skin tone and prolong the look and wear of makeup. It’s formulated with a water soluble base and active ingredients that refine the look and feel of skin to keep makeup in place from morning to night.
I’ve been testing out this product for about 2 weeks now as well and I’ve been loving it so far! I definitely notice it hydrating my face, it gives my face the perfect amount of hydration without it making my face look oily. It sinks into the skin quickly, it smooths over my texture. It makes my foundation last all day while making my makeup look flawless and smooth. I highly recommend this product if you are looking for an amazing drugstore primer. This primer is great for any skin types, yes even oily, just use with a magnifying primer in the T Zone and you’ll be set! I think especially for the price it is amazing! If you want your makeup to look flawless while on a budget, pick this primer up!
- Maybelline Face Studio Blender-$5.99
I feel like the drugstore lately has been coming out with great makeup sponges. It can be so tough to find a good makeup sponge that doesn’t soak up your products and gives you a flawless makeup application. This sponge is squishy yet a little bit firm, it does grow bigger in size when damp, I will say it’s not better than there Beauty Blender seriously though is there anything better than the Beauty Blender… nope! However I think it is a great sponge, it blended out my foundation and concealer nicely. I think for the price, you can’t beat it, try it out.
Just briefly want to mention the Maybelline Super Stay Full Coverage Foundation, I’ve been testing it out for a few weeks as well, first off I absolutely love it so much!! I live the matte full coverage it gives, but I will be making a dedicated post to that foundation, I’m so excited so just stay tuned for the next post, but if you’re having doubts own whether or not to try out that foundation, just do it!! It’s one of my new all time favs.
Those are my thoughts on new drugstore makeup.
