1. Favourite Drugstore Brand in General?
Hands down, Maybelline is my favourite drugstore brand. Their mascara (and mascara in general) is hit or miss for my stubbornly straight lashes, however all of their eyeshadow/eye products are amazing. I use the Line Stiletto liquid liner EVERY day – as I’ve mentioned, the felt tip is perfect for those new to liquid liner and just overall a fantastic product. I love the Color Tattoos – particularly Bad to the Bronze which is a favourite of many beauty bloggers and Inked in Pink.
2. Favourite Face/Cheek/Lip Product
This one is somewhat newer and should be no surprise – I love the CoverGirl Lipperfection Jumbo Gloss balms (check out my review of them a few posts back. I have 2 colours (Mauve Twist and Plum Twist) and I may pick up more!
3. Least Favourite Drugstore Product?
CoverGirl Clump Crusher was a major fail for me. Many people hyped it up huge on reddit and such and it just weighed my lashes down! Bummer – I was hoping for the amazing results other people got!
5. Favourite Underdog Product?
See above! While Mac brushes are top notch and I do love Sigma – you really can’t beat a $3 makeup brush.
8. Product that isn’t worth the hype?
I know so many people are going to be like WHAAAAT but I am going to say the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains were really underwhelming and mediocre to me. I’ve speculated that maybe it’s because the Canadian formulation differs from the American one, either way – I didn’t love it like many other beauty bloggers did.
So there’s my I Heart Drugstore Makeup tag, and I am tagging all of you! Let me know if you agree, disagree, or if you’re curious about any of my choices in the comments.
Also, brief bit of information about certain brands of makeup in Canada. Specifically, a where to buy for some of my favourite products:
Cle de Peau – this is only available now at the Holt Renfrew on Bloor and at select Chinese/Asian cosmetics retailers. I had to trek to Richmond Hill to get the refill cartridges for my beloved HG eyebrow pencil #204 as Holts has them backordered since the fall. They used to have it at a store in Bayview Village, but it closed down! 😦
Becca – only available at Sephora Eaton’s Centre, downtown Toronto.
Anyway, I am off to bed as it has been a long week! Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope to see your tags soon!
