Happy Monday, Mes Amies!
Are you all set for Thanksgiving?

So, today I wanted to talk makeup with you. Surprise, surprise.
I've never tried hide the fact that I LOVE high end cosmetics. Pat McGrath, MAC, Dr. Dennis Goss, Chanel...they all thrill me.

Still though, there are somethings that are actually better at the drug store.  Today, I wanted to share them with you!

First off, Real Techniques Makeup Brushes

I have purchased so many expensive brushes over the years. These blow them all away. They are softer, last longer and blend better than anything else.

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer 

We've all heard it a million times "Once you are over 30 , avoid under eye concealer" It settles into each and every fine line and makes them appear 10X larger than they actually are.
For some of us (me), this isn't an option. Fair skin makes those dark under-eye circles even more pronounced.
Enter in this magic potion. Its as much brightener as it is concealer. No settling into lines. Just lighting and brightening .

NYX Vinyl Liner

For years and years, I swore by Kat Von D's Tattoo liner. Then , somethings came out that made me not want to support that brand.
I stumbled upon this gem by NYX. Well, wouldn't you know, its better than the fancy one. Also, it costs twenty dollars LESS!

Maybelline Snapscara

I know, I know...this is the 3rd time that I have mentioned this mascara on this blogette.
Its THAT good though. This easily beats out Dior Show, Lancome, IT Cosmetics and all the others.

Ardell Naked Lashes

Do you love the look of lash extensions, but know that they just aren't for you?
If so, you'll LOVE these.
I tried lash extensions before. I hated them. I hated how damaging they were to my own lashes, I hated how I couldn't use my favorite makeup remover, I really hated what they looked like when they needed to be filled. 
These give you the lovely look of brand new, fresh extensions, but without any of the negatives.

Maybelline Master Prime

This guy is a total dupe for Smash Box's primers. Minimize pores, combat redness, hydrate, this line has a primer for nearly all complexion concerns.

NYX Brow Gel

Before I had my brows microbladed, I tried EVERY brow product under the sun.
This one is the cream that rose to the top.
It was easy to apply, stayed on all day and looked natural.
Even though my brows are now semi-permanent, I still cannot bring myself to part with this.

Are there any drug store products that you prefer over the more expensive products?
If so, do tell!
