Happy Aloha Friday, beauties! It’s time for another #FaceFriday feature. This week, it’s all about drugstore brands. Whether you’re a makeup noob, pro MUA, brand snob, there is that drugstore brand you are curious to try or swear by. So without further adieu, here are the products I used for today’s #fotd (some reviews are linked)

best drugstore makeup, spring 2014 makeup, budget-friendly makeup

Face:

Elf Mineral Infused Face Primer : nice quality for dirt-cheap price

Elf Flawless Finish Foundation: not a favorite because it does oxidize fast

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer: great for dark under eyes

Elf Transluscent Mattifying Powder: a tad chalky but good enough to set foundation

Eyes:

Elf Mineral Eyeshadow Primer : performs just as good as Urban Decay primer potion

Sonia Kashuk Moroccan Dunes Eyeshadow (limited edition)

Elf Cream Eyeliner Teal Tease (lower lash line): made my left eye teary-eyed

Loreal Silkissime Eyeliner Highlighter (water line): contact lens wearer beware: this transfers to contacts making your vision cloudy. I had to take off my lenses at work, shoot!

Covergirl Bombshell Volume Mascara

Blush:

Eddie Funkhouser Ultra Intensity Cheek Color (A Little Toasted)

Lips:

NYX Matte Lipstick Strawberry Daiquiri 

Have you tried any of these products?

    Also, I've been wondering about the elf foundation. How do you like it?

      It does oxidize fast; medium shade is darker than usual; light to buildable coverage.

    Very pretty look! e.l.f. Mineral Infused primer is one of my favorite primers.

      you mean the eye primer? for $1 you got nothing to lose 🙂

    That LE palette is so pretty, it almost looks like Chantecaille eye shadows. And I love elf, can't believe how cheap they are for the quality they offer.

    That lippie is so you… only a fraction of the cost of the Tom Ford! Of course, it's not nearly as luxe.

    My fav DS product is Wet N Wilds eye shadows!

    I've been curious about the Eddie Funkhauser products. Love the blush. Haven't been able to find it around here. Great look for little $!

    As much as I love my higher end beauty… I still have some drugstore staples that are just too good not to use!

      Same here but it's nice to try drugstore brands once in a while

    I haven't tried any of these, but Moroccan Dunes is gorgeous.. and the pop of teal looks fantastic!

    • April 21, 2014 / 6:37 am

      thanks much. unfortunately, i don't think that eye palette is still available at Target

  11. April 18, 2014 / 6:12 pm

    I love the Sonia Kashuk and Nyx 🙂

  12. April 18, 2014 / 8:00 pm

    NYX is a great brand and I'm waiting to try some Eddie F soon too!

  13. April 19, 2014 / 2:25 am

    Several of these items are ones that I use and agree with you. 🙂

    • April 21, 2014 / 6:38 am

      it was from last year so I doubt if Target still has it

  14. April 19, 2014 / 7:09 am
