Three ah-mazing drugstore finds! x

Posted on: March 31, 2015 by Yummo Mummo

The change of season naturally calls for a fun switch-up in my make up collection. I change out my winter face cream for my summer one (well, doesn’t everyone?), so why not add a few new fun summer make-up items. So pour yourself an ice tea (insert straw to not mess up the lippy just applied), and pull up a sun lounge. I wanted to show you some great new products fresh on the market for SS15 that won’t break the bank AND are readily available when your next at the drugstore picking up a prescription! 
Wet ‘N’ Wild Megalast in Purty Persimmon // $2.20 // Drugstores.
A great price and it stayed on for a good few hours.  I have a nail polish from the same brand that I purchased on a whim for Christmas Day in red and it turned out to be the most long lasting nail polish ev-ah! It’s on my pointer finger in the photo! And do you know who is behind this brand? Fergie, the one and only. Woop Woop.
Covergirl Full Lash Bloom Mascara in Very Black // $10 // Drugstores. 
I chose non-Waterproof but it comes in Waterproof Black and Brown. Once I saw Katy Perry promoting this on TV (she rocked the Super Bowl half-time show), I was sold and wanted to give it a try for myself. It lifts and curls pretty well and separates lashes. It gets my tick of approval for a well-priced drugstore find. I have paired it with the following L’Oreal product………

L’Oreal Infallible Smokissime // $10 // Drugstores
First up, I am not sure how to pronounce the “S” word and would be interested to know how they came up with the name. But that being said, if you want to create a super easy-peasy smoky eye by simply applying thickly to the lid and then using your finger to blend – then this is for you.  I an in no way a make-up professional, but I am as always, just trying to show you some inspiration from your average Momma! Go as heavy or as light as you like. And use with a primer if you want it to have some staying power. VERY easy to get off with some good eye make up remover. Fun and well-priced! No need to be scared of creating a smoky-eye anymore, my friends!

  1. Oooh, that WetnWild lippy looks amazing. I need that color in my collection. Also the covergirl mascara wand reminds me of the Benefit They're Real one. Great finds and thank you for sharing <3

    The lipstick looks great on you. I tried it and it was terrible. I have yet to find an orange that works on me.

  6. The lipstick is a great shade on you and the eyeliner looks pretty good as well x

    • Yeah, a fun way to play around with a smokey eye. I am in no way a make up professional but I sure do love a chance to play around and try something new. Thanks for reading.

  7. The bright orange lipstick looks great on you, also I really want to try the Covergirl mascara now 🙂

  8. Molly says:

    WetNWild's lipsticks are really good (especially for the price)! I just hate the packaging and the shape of the lipstick, it's so hard for me to apply. That color looks really nice on you though!

  9. What a nice little haul! Love the WnW Persimmon shade on you! Vavavoom! I haven't tried that CG mascara, but I generally like the others I've tried from the brand. I hadn't noticed that cool L'Oreal smoky stick. An innovative and quick way to get a smokey eye!
