Everyday Drugstore Makeup Look! (Using NEW Drugstore Products!)

Look For Less!

Everyday Drugstore Makeup Look!

I wanted to share with you my everyday look using only drugstore products! :-) All of these products are NEW at the drugstore and I'm been pretty much obsessed with them! Let's get into it!


Primer- I used the Milani Prime Perfection Face Primer which is Hydrating + Pore Minimizing. It's so amazing and I definetely notice a difference when it comes to my pores. It makes my foundation look smoother and the hydration factor is a plus! It's $9.99 :-)
I also used the NYX First Base Primer Spray before the Milani primer just to prep and refresh my face a bit. I find that it helps with extending the wear of my makeup. This is $7.99!

Foundation- I've been loving the L'Oreal True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation for my everyday looks because it's so easy and quick to use! It's so skin like but brace yourself for the price... $16.99! Make sure you have a coupon for this one, haha.

Powder- If you haven't tried the Maybelline Face Studio Master Fix Setting + Perfecting Loose Powder you are definetely missing out! It's so finely milled and sets your foundation into place. It also helps with the wear time! It's $9.99.


Eye Primer- I used the bh Cosmetics Smooth Canvas  Long Wear Shadow Primer in Malt which is a great shade to neutralize the lid. It's a great formula and makes any shadow last! It's only $7.00 right now on

Eyeshadow- I used the NEW Covergirl Roses TruNaked Eye Shadow Palette which is such a great drugstore palette! I own the entire collection but this one is my favorite. They shadows are buttery and it's only $11.99!

Mascara- I stuck with Covergirl and used the NEW Lashblast Plumpify Mascara! The wand is enormous but it gives me so much volume and holds a curl so well. Since I also wanted some length I used the Milani Length in Seconds Lash Extension Fibers which is also pretty amazing! The mascara is $11.99 and the fiber one is $8.99.

Last but not least I used the Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Color in Seduction. I love this formula! It's matte yet so moisturizing and super longwearing! This lippie is only $8.99!

Review: L'Oreal True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation!

Cool & Convenient!

L'Oreal True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation
I've been gone for so long but today I'm back with full force! :-) I've been dying to tell you guys about the L'Oreal True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation! I've been trying it out for about a month now and I'm in love! It's pretty pricey though... about $15 depending on where you get it. But I've already repurchased it so it's safe to say it's an awesome product! :-) Let's get into details!
L'Oreal True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation
The packaging is so pretty! It has rose gold, it's compact and lightweight. I purchased the shade W3 which is Nude Beige and it's a great match for me now before I start getting some color. There's 12 shades available on the Ulta website ranging from light to dark which is awesome.
There's only 0.51 oz of product which is one of my cons because I ran out of it super quick and it's not the cheapest thing in the world to replace.

My other con is the applicator. I appreciate the plastic cover that separates the products itself from the applicator but I just don't know how I feel about reusing this sponge and storing it... but that's a personal thing. I actually love the finish I get with the applicator! I provides great coverage ( a good medium) and it applies it evenly. I tried using a brush but it looked streaky and the beauty blender just blended it away. So the applicator is great I just wished replacements were sold separately.

Here's a look using this foundation. I do set it with a loose powder so it doesn't move. The finish is so skin like and natural which I love! I'd say it last about 4-5 hours looking great.

Bottom line: I really enjoy this foundation! I find it perfect for everyday use and it's so quick to use. I tend to reach for it on days that I just need to be out the door for lets just say it's saved my butt a few times! haha. I love how natural it looks. I just which it was a little more budget friendly. That's OK though, that's what coupons and sales are for! :-)
