2 Drugstore Products that Impressed Me
The majority of the beauty products I use are from Ulta or Sephora, and typically fall into the “high end” category. I’m making it a goal this year to integrate more drugstore brands into my content though, so I gave these two products a try recently and I really like them!
I think I strayed from drugstore products for so long because they just didn’t seem to deliver the same quality and longevity as the high end products.
Anyway, I mentioned the L’Oreal Pro Contour palette in my January favorites video and it’s still a favorite. I find myself grabbing it quite often! It’s soft and blends easily. The highlight is just a touch shimmery, but the contour shade is beautiful for fair skin!
I also tried the Covergirl trunaked nudes palette in 805. My biggest issue with drugstore brand eyeshadows is that they don’t blend nicely, but I found these to blend beautifully! They are a bit messier than higher end shadows in that they crumble faster, but if you are interested in spending less but still getting good results I would steer you in the direction of this palette. The colors are really pretty and would work on a variety of skin tones!
The brushes that come with both of these palettes are junk. With the money you saved on a cheaper palette, I’d recommend upgrading to at least a Sonia Kashuk brand brush. I’ve also heard great things about the ELF brushes if you want to give those a go!
