Good day! I hope everyone is doing well! It has been such a busy week with starting school! I am having a reboot in my career! I am so excited about learning so much new information! I am taking online classes full time because they are being safe. It is a different environment but I love change! 

I just got my cat fixed today as well. I was so nervous for her even though many go through it everyday. She is my baby and I worry about her so much! I had to put her on a waiting list. She was on the list for over a month! She was in heat on and off but we keep her inside. She is in healing process so please give her the best wishes.

Makeup with only drugstore cosmetic brands

I finally did it! I am obsessed with luxury department store cosmetics brands! I have nothing against drugstore brands. I just find myself leaning towards the high end brands. I decided to create a look with only brands that are purchased from drug stores. 

One of the issues I have with drugstore brand makeup is that it’s hard to find my match. There is no testers, matching device or beauty advisor to help me find my shade (target and Walgreens has some stores with beauty advisors). That is why I am always leaning towards luxury makeup brands. I was lucky to find my match in the drugstore brand.

I wanted to make my first demonstration special! I created a special surprise with swatches, application and flatlays! I created a video showing me applying the makeup. I made sure there was only brands that I bought from drug stores! 

Keep on reading to get the details!


Flatlay style of what’s in my bag

I had to do some shopping to get these items. I purchased them from the Walgreens app! I used some coupons, deals and percentage off where I bought one item and get the second item half off! I am not an experienced couponer but my discounts bought these items down $30 dollars. I even bought some items for my hair and skincare products. I will review that in a later blog!

  1. Revelon PhotoReady candid anti pollution setting powder gives the makeup a smooth finish and sets in all of the makeup
  2. Almay shadow squad eyeshadow in unapologetic has beautiful eyeshadows that provides a beautiful neutral color pay off
  3. Maybelline FitMe Blush in wine blends so effortlessly and builds up to provide more definition
  4. Rimmel stay glossy lipgloss in the shade pop fizz adds a pink shine to your lips you can wear alone or add shine to your favorite lipstick 
  5. L’Oréal Paris color rich lipstick in matte-jestic provides a bold plum color. I use this color when I want a bold look for my lips
  6. L’Oréal mascara primer boosts the benefits of the mascara
  7. CoverGirl volume mascara 
  8. Maybelline FitMe + Poreless foundation in shade 105

Fashion Haul 

I have updated my wardrobe lately during the sales. I had different styles for different occasions. I have satisfied my shopping addiction. I have a good wardrobe that will last me for months!
