Powder: Jordana Pressed Powder

Concealor: I have on but it is to light for my skin color, so I say I don't have any.. lol

Eye Shadow: I mainly have Jordana.. 8 Single e/s, 5 quads.. and some other cheap random brands..

Eyeliner: ELF eyeliner pen and HIP Creamliners.

Mascara: I love love the LA colors Mascara.. it make my lashes super dramatic.. and I have the Maybelline great lash.. but need to get a new one.

Lipstick/Lipgloss: My lipstick are from Jordana and lipgloss, my fav pink is from Covergirl wet slicks in pink sequin which I had for like 9 years or so.. nude is jordana in color squeeze n' shine in Tahitian Tea.

I'm a Revlon girl.

I have their colourstay quads in khaki (eyeshadow), it's really good - and simple. Their foundation is the only one I've had, it works pretty well though. Although their mascara - Double Twist - is another story. Don't even touch it!

I do though have an Australis concealor, and Australis green colour corrector. The colour corrector mkes me look greasy I've noticed, but the concealor is alright.

I recently stumbled upon a drugstore foundation I'm in love with and I thought I'd share it with you all. It's called Dermablend by Vichy and it's formulated specifically for covering hyperpigmentation and redness. It's truly the best coverage I've ever achieved without my face looking cakey or feeling dry. I just mix it with my favorite moisturizer, apply it with a sponge and my face is left looking flawless. The only thing is, it's pretty heavy so only the tiniest amount is needed for your entire face, and it dries pretty fast so it has to be blended the instant it's applied. I just hope to god it doesn't break me out because it's heavier than what I'm used to, and I worry it will clog my pores, but so far so good with this one.

Also, I just picked up Revlon's Nude Attitude and I absolutely love the color on me. It doesn't make me look comatose like Myth does. A shame however, that the texture is total crap. I have to slather on lip balm and coat this lipstick with a gloss or it looks cakey and disgusting.

I just wanted to respond about MAC. Having worked as a counter girl for over 5 years. I get tons of missinformed mothers who say "my daughter only wears luxury makeup, she only wears MAC".....

Estee launder is a leading "monopoly" but high end products for the estee brand. They own MAC, while it is in department stores, it is NOT considered a "luxury product" such as channel, estee, lancome, hell even benefit.

Now i do like MAC, in fact I'm a MAC freelance artist.

Many of the department store brands, like stila, MAC, Nars, UD. um a lot more too, offer industry discounts. If you are serious about even having a side "hobby careers" its worth jumping the hoops for the 40-50% off. Makes it close to "drugstore $$"

but... with that said, i do have TONS of drugstore makeup in my kits.

I don't use drugstore foundations because they all break me out, whether it's Maybelline or Revlon. Mascara-wise, I love L'Oreal's Collagen ranges. For eyeshadows, I like Bourjois (I'm not sure if this brand is included in drugstores in the states but it is in Singapore and France). For lipstick/lipgloss, I'd say Rimmel in Airy Fairy and Maybelline's range of Color Sensational Lipsticks.

xoxo,

Roxanne

i have dermablend, and it was $30 at ulta.. i don't think that's considered d/s, lol :) /emoticons/smile@2x.png 2x" width="20" height="20" /> i heard though that they sell it at cvs. it's more of a "pharmacy" foundation, kind of like la roche posay and such. in germany, i.e. those two brands are only available in actual pharmacies (not drugstores).  :) /emoticons/smile@2x.png 2x" width="20" height="20" />

or are there 2 dermablends... ?? that would be funny/weird!

my favorite d/s product.. l'oreal mascaras! i was madly in love with voluminous million lashes ever since it came out 1.5 (or so) years ago.. but i cheated... i recently bought their new false fiber mascara... it's amazing. seriously one of the best mascaras i've ever had!

I'm a big fan of drug store products because I can't really afford higher brand makeup all the time. A good product I think is the lo'real true match foundations, that is the foundation I have used for awhile now and it is wonderful. They have a lot of color variety and it provides good coverage, which I need! lol. I also have heard good things about the maybelline fit me foundation but I read that it was a light coverage foundation so I haven't tried it but I think it would be worth a try for someone not looking for a heavy coverage foundation! :) /emoticons/smile@2x.png 2x" width="20" height="20" />

No to mostly Rimmel and  Wet n' Wild. Though I did buy the Kate Moss inspired lipsticks a week or two again and like them but for me, their lipsticks in general smell funky.  No offense, however,  but I find I like these brands the least.  I like Revlon for lipstick and nail polish.  Essie now is sold at Walgreens which is super cool and love their nail polish as well.  I like Almay for their mascara (One Coat), which doesn't irritate my contacts and I really like their concealor for acne prone skin which is the only concealor I use when and if I need it.  I like Cover Girl for their lipsticks. Their new lip perfection lipsticks are so awesome.  Great color, great pigmentation and very lasting.  I like their blushes too but I don't use them as much as in the past.  Maybelline for their lipsticks, eyeliners or mascaras.  Loreal I like for their mascaras.  The creme liners in their H.I.P line are great but I don't use the rest. And I like Physicians formula for their blush and bronzers.  E.L.F for eyeshadow; I really love their beauty books you can usually find at Walgreens or Target around Christmas.  I don't buy foundation at the drugstore.  I only use Clinique for foundation/powder since it's the only thing that doesn't break me out but I found too the best thing to combat oily skin and acne is not wearing any foundation/powder  whatsoever:)

Foundation: I myself like Revlon's Colorstay. It's a bit thicker, but it dries down to a nice finish. I also like Covergirl's Natureluxe foundation too.Powder: I like Rimmel's Matte powder. It's really the only one I use so I don't know of many other powders.Concealor: CG Smoother stick. Eye Shadow: NYX has some nice eyeshadow that I find myself using quite often.Mascara: Maybelline's The Falsies has done wonders on my eyelashes. Lipstick/Lipgloss: Lipstick: Revlon, hands down. Adore them.Blush: I wear NYX blush a lot too. I love the shade Glow.Bronzer: I'm not too big into wearing Bronzer, but ELF's blush/bronzer duo has been good.
