Current Beauty Favorites from the Drugstore
L'Oreal EverCreme Cleansing Conditioner: One part sulfate-free shampoo to three parts moisturizing conditioners, this product will leave your hair feeling like silk. It feels like a big luxury, but at $6/bottle, there's no guilt.
Maybelline Color Tattoo shadows (Limited Edition): This line of mostly neutrals is what I'd hoped the permanent line would be: The shadows apply evenly and set to a budge-proof finish. They work wonderfully as a base for shadows but are wearable on their own.
Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Finishing Powder: Formulated with broad-spectrum SPF 25, this pressed powder is ideal the sun-conscious who want to add protection over makeup. It also sets makeup without an ounce of cakiness. One of the smartest products Maybelline has released, I hope it reappears on shelves soon.
CeraVe daytime moisturizer: It's a triple-threat with hyaluronic acid (which pulls moisture from the air), ceramides, and broad-spectrum sunscreen. Built to protect the moisture barrier of skin, this lightweight moisturizer is a great value at $13/bottle.
L'Oreal Infallible shadows: These pressed pigment shadows feel like a fusion of cream and powder. They don't require primer to go on pigmented and stay crease-free. Beyond that, they last until you take them off.
Revlon Colorstay 18 Hour Shadow quads: The palettes are assembled logically and vary from office demure to night-out daring. The shadows apply smoothly, stay true-to-color and pigmented, and last all day without primer.
Cover Girl Cheekers Blushes: These come in a variety of shades, are affordable, and go on pigmented and smooth. They remain one of the cheapest makeup products in the drugstore, so feel free to experiment.
Revlon lipstick: The Little Black Dress of the drugstore, this line is a classic and rightfully so. With an infinite selection of shades, the lipsticks have the finish and wear of much more expensive brands.
