Inspired my this post from Jayme and Mendi about drug store makeup, I decided to share my drugstore favourites.
1. What is your favorite drugstore makeup brand?
Without any doubts, that would be Deborah, and inexpensive italian brand. The brand even has a cheaper line, Debby. Most of my nailpolishes are from Deborah or Debby. I also like Rimmel and L'Oréal.
2. What are your favorite face, cheek and lip products?
For the face, I have to mention Garnier BB cream in Light/Medium:
I bought it in Buffalo during my honeymoon last summer, and have been pretty happy with it. It has a light coverage, but it does its job. I think it might be a tad too heavy for oily skin types, but mine is pretty dry so I am ok with it. It's a nice alternative to a heavier foundation
For the cheeks, I have yet to find a blush that suits me.
For lips, Deborah Shine Creator lipstick: it is hydrating and has a nice coverage:
3. Least favorite product?
4. What is the best makeup bargain?
It's "My Mascara" volume by Deborah:
5. What is your favorite underdog product? (Something you love that often gets overlooked?)
I tend to use everything I love, but I keep forgetting this:
Rimmel Kajal soft Kohl in Royal Blue:
It's a beautiful blue that goes well with my brown eyes, especially in the summer - but I keep forgetting that I have it!
6. A drugstore product that is overpriced?
Foundations! They are so expensive, especially here in Italy, that I prefer to add some euros and buy higher-end foundations.
7. Show your best drugstore dupe(s)!!
I tend not to buy dupes. But let me show you something:
L'Oréal Super Liner Ultra Precision in Black. I have already talked about it here. I think this is the best eyeliner ever. It's better of all other brands I have tried, some of them very expensive.
8. Drugstore product that isn't worth the hype?
Don't know. Usually I don't buy stuff only because everybody is talking about it. I consider if/when I could use something, and especially if I would be able to use it.
