Eyeliner -Jordana - Fabu Liner Liquid Eyeliner Pen

Absolute greatest eyeliner pen on the market, at also the best price. My last eyeliner pen from Revlon ran out so I found this one at Walgreens for only $1.99 and decided to buy. Based on the price, I wasn't expecting much, but it exceeded all my expectations. The fine tip of the pen allows you to get right above the lash line. Lasts all day long and is easy to use. Also provides a nice winged effect for special occasions. I have absolutely no complaints about this liner. Can't believe how amazing it is considering the price.

You know how in movies, the actresses' lips look flawless and you're thinking "how do they have color on their lips without it looking caked on?".. Well at least I do haha and I think this is the secret. Adds just enough pigment to where it still looks believable, and adds just the right amount of gloss so your lips don't look overpowering. I actually use this as a lip plumper too. I don't know why but for some reason my lips look huge after I apply this. Definitely not a bad thing! Also, I love how it is in crayon/pencil form. It's very easy to apply. So yeah, this is definitely my go-to lip product. Have absolutely no complaints whatsoever.
Self Tanners -Unlisted Brand - Salon Bronze Airbrush Tan

Best self tanner I've ever used. Gives you the exact same darkening results as a professional spray tan, but at home. I do have some advice though: READ THE DIRECTIONS. I see so many reviewers saying that the product drips, leaves splotches, etc. but the directions say to constantly wipe the nozzle of the gun and hold 12 inches away from your body. I also noticed that the tan darkens over time. I'll spray myself at night and it doesn't look like a big change but when I wake up the next morning, I'm super bronzed. One bottle lasts me 2 weeks, so over time, yes the costs can add up. But definitely worth it. I will never stop using this unless they discontinue it.
I really do not know why the reviews for this foundation are so bad! By far the best drugstore foundation I've tried. I've been through virtually every Maybelline, Covergirl, and Almay foundation known to mankind, and never found one I truly fell in love with, until this! I have oily skin around my chin and forehead, and this foundation gives me a semi-matte finish so my face no longer looks wet and dewy, which is exactly what I've been looking for all these years. And for under six bucks! I also love how many shade options there are. I can find a shade to 'fit me' (see what I did there?) during every season of the year. My only minor complaint is that there is no pump on the bottle, so you have to pour it out. But many foundations are like that. So all in all, I love this foundation. Suits my skin type perfectly.
This is probably my favorite drugstore mascara, ever. One layer of this provides naturally volumnious lashes, but several coats really helps to achieve the "falsies" look. People constantly ask me if my lashes are fake. Yes, it is a bit on the pricier side for a drugstore mascara, but remember, you get what you pay for. I don't see how anyone could be disappointed by this mascara. Does everything it claims to do. Love it so much!
I'm going to give this product a 3 out of 5 because yes it works, but you honestly cannot get past the smell. It's called "Natural Glow" but there is nothing natural about the smell! The first time I used it I was so proud of my new healthy glow and all my family and friends could say was "what is that awful smell?" Also, the smell escapes onto anything you touch! It left a horrible stench on my clothes and sheets. If Jergens could fix the smell of this, I'd be hooked.
My first review of this was that I wasn't impressed and didn't notice a difference in the sleekness of my hair. However, after riding around on the freeway in a Mustang all day with the top down, I can now say that this product works wonders! The wind blew my hair in every direction, and when I got back home, all I did was brush my hair again and noticed my style was still straight! Very impressive. Plus it smells AMAZING
The Aussie Moist hair care system completely changed the look, feel, and healthiness of my hair. I usually do not expect much from drugstore brands. I've tried countless Suave, Pantene, Tresseme, etc. products and none of them ever gave me a noticeable difference in my hair-- until I tried this. It makes my hair smoother, more manageable, and easier to style. I don't know what special ingredients Aussie is using that the other brands aren't, but I am hooked! I would forever recommend this shampoo, as well as the conditioner.
Liquid -Cover Girl - Advanced Radiance Age Defying - Liquid

I don't usually expect too much from cover girl, but this foundation really is great. The texture itself doesn't feel the way other foundations do. It's as if you're applying a face cream or moisturizer instead of a foundation. It is not sticky or wet, and blends beautifully. I would definitely recommend this to people who cannot go out and buy expensive makeup brands. This one does the trick for a reasonable price. Love love love love.
Liquid -Maybelline - Instant Age Rewind Eraser Treatment Makeup

Finally a foundation that doesn't require the need for extra makeup brushes and sponges to apply. I absolutely love the built in sponge applicator. It actually feels really good and relaxing on the face. It's a nice pick me up in the morning. The finish of this foundation is a bit dewy and moisturizing, so setting with a powder is a must. Doesn't provide that decent of a coverage either. And the lack of color choices that Maybelline provides screws girls like me over, because even their lightest shade looks tan on my face. But all in all, I love the applicator so much that I will continue to buy this and use it on my casual days.
Foundations -Maybelline - Dream Nude Airfoam Foundation

I do think the design of this product is very mimicky, and do not thing it is the greatest foundation in the world, but I don't think it deserves the amount of harsh reviews it is getting. I really like the finish of the foundation. It has an okay coverage, but looks effortless and natural, and dries with a mattifying effect, so no need to set with powder. Also I noticed it shrinked the look of my pores. The bottle itself though is not great, and unless you shake it for two minutes at the least, it will come out streaky and disgusting. So all in all, it's not mind blowing, but not awful either. Good for the days when you don't really need to get did up.
One of my favorite mascaras of all time, hands down. Gives me thick long lashes with minimal effort. A few quick coats is all I need. And the crazy thing is, it doesn't really look all that special. It's a normal sized brush with no added curve or anything, yet works like magic. Was definitely not expecting it to be this amazing. Will forever repurchase.
The good thing about covergirl foundations is that you have many different shade options. Unfortunately, the magic stops there. Apply too little of this product, and you get zero coverage. Apply too much, and it looks unnatural and caked on. However, you do get what you pay for, and considering that this foundation is inexpensive, you should not expect too much. I only use this product when running out for quick errands or if I'm just staying home all day.
