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


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


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


Eddie Funkhouser Ultra Intensity Cheek Color (A Little Toasted)


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.

    Very pretty makeup look! I have always wanted to try that elf primer!

      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!

  7. April 18, 2014 / 1:25 pm

    I really like your lip color collection, You look pretty!

    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!

    • April 21, 2014 / 6:36 am

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

  10. April 18, 2014 / 4:55 pm

    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

    I love that lip color so much I need to run out and get it in the morning!

  15. April 19, 2014 / 10:02 pm
