FOTD Using Only Drugstore Makeup

Allan and I got to have a date night on Friday!  We didn't do anything exciting AND after a couple glasses of wine I was beyond sleepy, but it was so nice to get out of the house sans Benjamin and reconnect.  What's even better was that I actually found the time to do my makeup!  Even better was all items were found at my local Shoppers Drug Mart.

I used Physicians Formula pH Matchmaker pH Powdered Blush in Rose, L'Oreal La Palette Nude 2, Maybelline ColorSensational Lipstick in Yummy Plummy, Essence Lash Princess Mascara, Maybelline Fit Me Powder in Classic Ivory and Almay TLC 16 Hour Makeup in Ivory.

I love the lip color and do wear it often.  I will also mention that the blush does color match well and picks the perfect pink for your skin tone.  However, the highlight for me was the liquid foundation.  I don't typically use foundation as it can feel cakey and too heavy but this one went on so nicely and I barely had to use anything to cover my whole face. PLUS, I didn't even need to use concealer.  Amazing.

The eyes.  I wanted to like this palette, I really did and when you first look at it, it's truly beautiful.  Unfortunately, there was so much fall out from the shadows that I had to use some additional foundation under my eyes just to cover it up.  The colors blended okay but the shimmer shades didn't show up at all.  Sigh, not a good palette.

Despite not being happy with the palette, the look was nice and I was happy with the outcome.  Maybe I was just happy to have put makeup on in the first place!

Do any of you have this palette?  What are your thoughts?


  1. I have the pallet and I too don't love it. Lots of fall out and definitely not enough shimmer. I find the pigments aren't as strong as I would like as well.

  2. I don't have this palette, but I think you look beautiful! xo

  3. I don't have this palette, but I think you look beautiful! xo


Thanks for the love!...XO Christina
