I was intrigued by the article Here's What 5 Cult Drugstore Products Look Like On 5 Women by Refinery 29 that kept popping up on my blog feed. In the article they test out five popular drugstore cosmetics, each under $10, on five of their staffers to see if their cult status holds up. I thought it might be fun to try them out for myself so I jotted them down in my phone and looked for them whenever I was out and about (and near cosmetics). So far I've only found two of the products, I guess they are as popular as the article points out. I found the blush at Target and the eye shadow at the grocery store.
First up is E.L.F. Cosmetics Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder ($4) in St. Lucia.
The blush is a light, shimmery peach-pink and the bronzer is a medium toned matte finish. I rarely use bronzer but I tried it do some contouring and really liked it. The blush is very light and perfect for a daytime look but can also be built up for a darker, more dramatic look for nighttime.
The other product I was able to find was L'Oreal Paris Infallible Eye Shadow in Amber Rush ($8.49)
This is a pretty, shimmery rose gold color. It's very silky and smooth to apply and stays on! I love the hint of glitter without being too blingy!
Here's a quick pic (no filter) of me in the products. I could definitely use some lipstick, I'm still looking for that one (NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Copenhagen)! What are your favorite drugstore cosmetics?
