Awesome drugstore finds

I have been meaning to do this post for a while now so i finally got around to doing it now after i have accumulated the right products. And also i have noticed lots of videos on youtube lately have been about top 10 drugstore products, or drugstore items under $10 and so i wanted to share my ideas with you guys as well :)
First off is the ever so famous St.Ives scrub. I LOVE this scrub, i use it in the morning and i love the citrus smell it wakes me right up and it feels so fresh. It makes my face super smooth and its like under $3 at Target!
This next product i have been really iffy about. When i first heard about it, i was like omg i want it. But after doing some research and reading reviews, lots of people were so so, either they loved it or hate it. So i just went and bought it to see for myself and i loved it! What pursuaded me to buy it even more was the little scrub thing that comes along with it. I feel so refreshed and extra clean when i use it, it feels like it gives you a deeper cleaning. And now im always excited to wash my face with this, and it doesnt feel like a boring routine like it was before :)

Wow i had no idea a thing called dry shampoo even existed. After watching some videos on youtube, so many people recommend this Tresemme dry shampoo. First i thought it was a shampoo for oily hair, because my hair gets oily by like the second day already and i hate it. After purchasing this, i realized its like a hairspray which is pretty cool. Whenever your hair is oily, spray this on, leave in for like 1 -2 mins and just comb it through or rub between your hair, mainly scalp area since thats where the oil is and voila! Your hair looks non-oily/greasy and it styles a lot better with this spray as well which is an awesome bonus!

I have been wanting tweezerman tweezers for a LONG time now, but wasn't really sure if i wanted to fork out $20 for a pair of tweezers. The more reviews i read and heard, the more i wanted them. So i go to Target and i didnt even know they sold tweezerman there, i found a pair of smaller ones than the regular huge ones. This doesnt bother me since they still get the job done and they were $12! I was like SCORE! Of course i grabbed the pink ones and ran home to do my brows. WOW, have i been missing out. This little sucker will pull out every little speck of hair you want out. You also know that these tweezers are awesome since they have a lifetime guarantee and they sharpen it for you as well. You have to send it to the company(they give you the address on the package of the tweezers) and they will sharpen, repair, replace for free :)

I have so been wanting to try the NARS Sheer Glow foundation that everyone has been raving about. Well, a lot of people also said that this Neutrogena foundation is like an exact dupe for it. Of course i did my research and lots of people had mixed feelings about it. Again, i wanted to see for myself and i bought it in 50 soft beige. Man, this is an AWESOME drugstore foundation! I have tried many and its even better than some of the high end ones too. I have tried the Revlon colorstay, photoready, rimmel matte, MUFE HD, YSL matt touch, BE powder foundation and this beats them all! Well, at least for me, it doesnt look dry or cakey or streaky, it looks super flawless, very natural and it looks like i have amazing healthy skin!! Its $11.99 at Target.

Everyone loves pigmented and blendable shadows, and if you can find some quality ones at the drugstore then thats even better!! These are the maybelline eyestudio shadows in 30 purple icon. As you can see they are really pigmented and apply amazing!

I have also been wanting to try these revlon cream shadows and i finally did. They go on kinda sheer but you can build up the intensity, it might crease so use a good primer like UD UDPP. These also make a great base so your powder shadows look awesome. This would go great with the shadows about the maybelline eyestudio ones in 30 purple icon. ( cant u tell i love purples :))

This is a great eyebrow filler pencil. It wont look like you drew on your brows with a sharpie marker. This is great because some people just cant use a light hand while applying brow stuff, so even if you have a "heavy" hand, it will look natural. I would stay away from light brown shades since they do apply sheer and tend to look reddish/orangish in photos. I use the darkest one and it looks light brown.
These are some great eyebrushes from Target if you cant afford Sigma, MAC, or other brand brushes. The one on the top is a shadow brush, its also great for paint pots, or cream shadows, its not too hard or too soft, just right. And the bottom is the crease brush and also great for blending. Both are under $2!

Such a cute spring color i picked up from Target for like $0.94 or .97! Very pretty baby pink, complements lots of skintones.


  1. Can you believe I haven't tried the St. Yves scrub yet? LOL.

    If I'm totally curiopus about the Go 360° Clean, it's just because of the Scrublet! I have tons of face cleansers so I don't need more, but I want the Scrublet so bad! =D

    I'm not sure about THRESemmé Dry Shampoo. I loved it the first time I used it, but it didn't seem to work as nicely after! Strange -_-

    The NYC nail polish looks cute! ^^

    Great haul =D

  2. U havent tried it yet?? Omg its like something almost everyone has in their house lol. You should try it, its under $3 so thats good lol and works great! teh 360 is basically a regular cleanser with a scrubbing thing lol, but i still like ti :) I feel like the dry shampoo works somedays and others it doesnt...weird but oh well :P
