4 “Popping” Drugstore Beauty Products of 2017!

Hello my sweets! A new year brings on new opportunities for people in anything they set their mind too. Once you decide you’re ready to go after your dreams, go for it and never stop until your are happy.

Back to the message at hand, This year I vowed I would do what I love this time around and stop wasting time with excuses. As I grew older I grew a found love for any and everything that’s about beauty. For some ladies and gents wearing eyelash extensions and doing a cut crease gives them confidence. And honey! The world is your oyster, may your day be as flawless as your makeup! 

There’s no denying everytime my fiancé and I would  go shopping at our local drugstore (of course before getting dragged away like a little kid getting denied candy by hubby haha) I would go right into the makeup aisle and browse the amazing selections of inexpensive beauty products from anti-wrinkle creams to concealers and makeup tools for a very cheap price. 

The amazing thing about drugstore products is that they’re hundreds of Makeup Dupes on Pinterest of MUAS performing swatches with highend makeup products and find that perfect match to pull off that high end look and still save money. 

For example, ELF and MAC setting spray has the same consistency as one another. It gives your final appearance a matte polished finished and the only difference between the products is the price.

While shopping I have laid my eyes on a few makeup products which made me do a little research of my own on the products that’s supposed to be “popping” in the drugstore aisle of 2017. After watching beauty YouTubers reviews and reading customer feedback, I’m convinced the products listed below are a must have in my makeup bag for 2017.

I have read many reviews all stating the same thing about the matte lipstick by Milani Cosmetics. This matte lipstick comes with amazing pigmented colors and the lipstick stays on all day! You can get it at your local Target or Walgreens for 7.99 or online here.

I have found this amazing highlighter by NYX from TatyBeauty a beauty YouTuber while looking to expand my “No Makeup” makeup look. TatyBeauty gives this highlighter a thumbs up if your looking for an inexpensive good quality highlighter. You can get this product at your local Ulta for $8.99 USD!

When I was browsing for a new electric facial brush to purchase online for these clogged pores and blackheads, I was over joyed when I ran into the LAVO Giro Cleansing Brush on Amazon. I was skeptical because of the “eyebrow raising” price of  $25.97 USD. However, the customer reviews said otherwise that this facial brush is definitely on the “popping” list of beauty products and facial cleaning brushes. It minimizes pores,removes diets + oils and makes your face feel soft and clean right after.

Also! If you use promotion code “GIRO5OFF” it will take an additional $5.19 USD off the total of the facial brush! Look at that, inexpensive brush and more money in your pocket, sounds like a deal to me!

If you haven’t heard about ColourPop Cosmetics by now I just have one question – Where have you been?! ColourPop Cosmetics are known for their pigmented eyeshadows and of course their eyebrow selections.  Their eyebrow pencils come in a variety of natural colors.

  • Blonde.
  • Honey Blonde.
  • Dope Taupe.
  • Arched Auburn.
  • Red Head.
  • Angin’ Brunette.
  • Black N’ Brown.
  • Jesp

I’m excited to see what’s more to come from the beauty industry and this is only the beginning for my beauty journey! Will I try to keep my natural look or will I experience with vibrant colors?

Until next time!

XOX, Aneesha

Makeup Products I’ll Always Repurchase

I tend to switch up things from time to time when it comes to my makeup routine. One year I’m wearing a face full of makeup and the next year I’m wearing no makeup at all. However, After a few years of wearing makeup and watching makeup tutorials on YouTube. I found the holy grail items that I use for my “everyday” makeup look.  The following products not only do the job, But they’re all affordable and can be found in your local beauty supply store.And of course I have to share these amazing products so you can try them out yourself!

1.) LA Girl HD Pro Concealer | This is my favorite concealer of all time! I discovered this product while watching makeup guru  Aaliyah Jay applying the product during one of her makeup tutorial. This product is inexpensive and applies on smoothly with or without foundation. It has GREAT coverage, and it varies in all different shades. 

2.)  NYX Tame & Frame Tinted Brow Pomade | I’ll be the first to admit I barely have any eyebrows, So finding a product that doesn’t look harsh on my face was a task. But This product makes my eyebrows look very natural. You would never think I have any product on my brows unless I tell you. This fabulous product comes in many natural shades for everyone to use. Definitely worth buying for only $6.99.

3.) Maybelline Falsies Push Up Drama Mascara | The name fits perfectly for this mascara “falsies”, Maybelline has done it this time with this “false eyelashes in a bottle” product. It makes your eyelashes POP and appear longer and thicker with just one or two coats. 

4.) NYX HD Translucent Photogenic Setting Powder | This is another tip I’ve learned from Aaliyah Jay by watching her tutorials. After applying concealer and/or highlighter, Applying this product on top for about 10 seconds gives your face a natural glow in any lighting. I don’t go anywhere without setting my makeup. And it’s great for oily skin.
