The BEST drugstore eyeshadow I have ever tried is the Loreal Infallible in the shade Amber Rush! The quality of this eyeshadow is incredible! The formula is a mix between a cream and powder. It glides on so effortlessly and lasts all day long! Amber Rush is a rose gold shimmery color that looks stunning on anyone! I would highly recommend !
I would love to try more shades of this shadow! Let me know your favorites!
Oh and on every other day as well!
If you haven’t tried this mascara yet… it’s time!
The wand has a curved shape which gives your lashes a nice curl! The formula is great and doesn’t smudge at all. I really love the way my lashes look when I wear this mascara and it has been my go to all summer. The only downside would be removing it. It’s a lot harder to remove than my other mascaras…
Maybelline Lash Sensational is so fetch!
What drugstore mascaras do you swear by?!
Summertime is the best time! As we transition to the new season these are some of the new beauty products I have been using and loving!
With tanned skin I love a brighter lip! I tend to stick with mauves, but come summer I am ready for some color! I have been loving the Maybelline lipstick in the color Vibrant Mandarin! It’s such a perfect summer shade! The orange/pink color compliments a summer tan perfectly!
My next favorite is the Butter Bronzer by Physicians Formula. This bronzer literally smells like summer. It has a tropical/coconut scent! The skin tone is pretty neutral which I really love about this bronzer. It’s doesn’t make you look orange… The packaging is also super cute and tropical.
I’m sure by now everyone has heard about the new Wet n Wild Highlighting Powder in the shade Precious Petals. It was so hard for me to get my hands on this baby! I checked everywhere and it was always sold out. I finally found it in K-Mart. This highlight is so gorgeous. It gives your skin such a pretty glow and is super affordable. It’s creamy and pigmented. I use a fan brush and lightly highlight my cheekbones and brow bones with this highlight.
Along with beauty products, perfume is fun to change up this time of year too. I am so obsessed with Thymes Kimono Rose. Its a floral, girly scent that I love! I’ve been wearing it non stop!
Last but not least I think a cute pair of cat eye sunnies are a must for the summer! I think this style of sunglasses looks so chic! I bought these from Target!
What’s your summer favorites?!
It’s official! I found my favorite hand cream! If you haven’t tried Soap & Glory Hand Food yet you should! The scent is amazing, makes my hands super soft, and never leaves a greasy residue! Target carries this brand.
P.S. How cute is their packaging!
These are the products that I swear by! My go-to makeup !
First of all I would probably die without the beauty blender. I love love love it! I cannot say enough good things about the Beauty Blender. In my opinion it is the best tool to apply makeup. I use it to apply my foundation, concealer, and powder. It’s a game changer.
Makeup Forever Ultra HD Foundation is such a beautiful foundation. I have discovered that applying it with a dry beauty blender works best for me because it is a very watery foundation. It makes your skin look flawless and never looks cakey!
Milani Matte lipstick in the shade “Naked” is such a great color for every day. It’s a perfect nude! Milani’s lipsticks are great quality and inexpensive.
NYX is another brand that never lets me down! I tend to use this blush a lot! It is in the shade “Pinched”.
MaxFactor 2000 Calorie Mascara is incredible. Gives my lashes tons of volume and never clumpy!
What are some of your all time favorites that you couldn’t live without?!
Whenever I get home from work I always love to light a candle. It creates a calmness in the home and makes me feel relaxed… or maybe that’s the rosé …!
But seriously this candle is my favorite candle ever. I have repurchased it so many times and will continue to do so. The brand is called Sensational and the scent is “Green Tea” This candle is better than any Yankee candle I have ever had. So many times I’ll buy a candle and I feel like you can’t really smell it. Well not with this baby!
You can find these candles in Marshall’s and TJMaxx for $7.99.
Sometimes we need that extra help of concealer to make us look … well.. not so tired! Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer is my BFF when it comes to ugly dark circles! It’s inexpensive and gets the job done! My eyes look brighter and more awake!
With any concealer make sure you set it with a powder after applying. This will avoid creasing and keeping it in place all day. I set mine with the Makeup Forever loose powder which is another one of my absolute favorites which you can read about here > MAKE UP FOR EVER

I am a big fan of the brand Milani from the drug store. I am always impressed by their quality! I have read amazing reviews on their Bella Eyes eyeshadow and decided to give them a try! I went into CVS and bought the shade “Bella Champagne”. I figured I would try one to see how I like them. I picked this shade because it’s a shimmery brown shade that you could wear every day. I now understand why these eyeshadows have such hype! Great pigment and a beautiful color selection!
So… I later go into K-Mart and see a clearance basket filled with Milani eyeshadows and a bunch of other products! I literally could not believe my (Bella) eyes! Of course the store was closing in about 15 minutes, so I went crazy searching through what I would consider a dream come true!
As you can see… I did pretty well under such pressure! I probably looked crazy, but it was worth it! I got 5 shadows! Two of them were .99 cents and three were $1.99! The one I had purchased at CVS was $4.49. I was so excited to be getting these great shadows for so cheap! I refuse to buy them from CVS now knowing I could pay a lot less elsewhere!
The colors I got were :
So, remember… check clearance ALWAYS! You never know what fabulous makeup you can find! Unless I got there first! 😉
