HOW TO: Get High Quality Items at the Drugstore

Hello everybody!!!!!! For my first real "beauty" post I knew I had to do something good... something epic... something that says "Hello World, this is me and this is why you should subscribe and keep comin' back for more" So after much debate, my 'grand idea' was to ignore every bone in my body that naturally tells me to do everything over the top :) aaaand...... keep it simple, by posting about something that we all can relate to! 

Im sooo excited to share my favorite drugstore products with you! The drugstore is a bit like dating...  there are some awesome finds out there, but there are tons of duds as well.  I am constantly getting texts/emails/messages asking about drugstore makeup.. they usually sound like this,"I've been watching tutorials on youtube, and I want to be able to recreate those looks, but there is sooo much crap to buy... what do I get?!" or "I just spent (insert ridiculously high $$ amount here) at Sephora and now I'm feeling guilty, is there anything at the drugstore that I could by that is just as good?" or my favorite "I hate all my makeup and need a complete overhaul, BUT I don't have a lot of money to spend, any suggestions?"  Well my friends, yes.. yes I do have some suggestions for you

#1. Palladio Primer ((Herbal Foundation Primer, Herbal Eyeshadow Primer))
#2. Revlon Colorstay Whipped Foundation
Revlon Colorstay 24 Hr. Foundation ((250 Fresh Beige)) 
Revlon Photoready Foundation ((008 Golden Beige))

#3. Rimmel London Stay Matte Pressed Powder ((005 Silky Beige))
#4. Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer
Maybelline Age Rewind Dark Spot Eraser
Loreal Magic Lumi Concealer
#5. Rimmel London Natural Bronzer ((022 Sun Bronze))
#6. Real Techniques Brushes ((Expert Face Brush))

#7. Lo'real Infallible Eyeshadows

#10. Maybelline The Elixr Colorsational Lipgloss ((XXX, lilac and coral))
#11. Milani Lipstick (Sweet Nectar)
