Drugstore Find: L’oreal Blend Artist Concealer Blender

My local Walmart was doing markdowns and after months of debating whether to get L’oreal makeup sponges, I was able to purchase 2 styles. My favorite being the concealer blender.  It comes in a charming turquoise blue color, is smaller than the average makeup sponge but also larger than the beautyblender brand mini pro sponges.

The instructions said I didn’t have to wet the sponge so I tapped on my favorite tarte brand shape tape concealer and it worked great. I own the beauty blender minis but I find they are too small and my fingers are too stubby for them to work right so I prefer the L’oreal brand concealer blender.

drugstore find: L’oreal true match lumi cushion foundation

I don’t know if I wrote about it prior but many months ago I had purchased L’oreal’s ture match lumi cushion foundation…in the wrong shade. Here and there I make the wrong assumption and will go well I’m a “NC something in MAC” and i’ll buy something that has the “C” in it which is what happened with the first L’oreal cushion foundation I purchased. I bought a C3 or something and it was too light.

This time I bought the N3.5 and its exactly what I wanted. Its Chantecaille’s just skin in glow meets most of my current foundation shade koh gen do 123(113 is good but 123 is like my own skin but better). I try to go a tad darker than my own skin color because it looks better for some reason.  I may check into N3 for the days I look pale but since I wear zinc sunscreen underneath N3.5 will be my go-to shade.

Its very velvety a little goes a long way the packaging is adorable and it doesn’t say anything about sunscreen so do wear sunscreen of your choice underneath. I think the L’oreal one is a great way to test the whole cushion thing and so far I love it.

Gathering Thoughts. I forget.

So here’s two more Drugstore Finds which I’m just going to label rather than title it that while I remember. I wasn’t sure if I wrote about the product here but L’oreal hydrafresh toner. I’m using that right now from time to time. Its alcohol free and it smells like heaven blessed it. Its got salicylic acid in it so if you feel a tad lazy and you don’t want to exfoliate, this toner may work for you. I bought it for about 7bucks and its 8.5 oz. It says you can use it day and night and I ended up purchasing this over the Neutrogena toner.

As for Neutrogena, I had this flashback of when I was younger and owned a tube of the Norwegian formula hand cream. Not only was I very pleased with the moisturizing element of the product, it always smelled nice. Not overpowering or strong in a bad way. I must say just about every product Neutrogena I’ve bought smells like a dream. I bought a tube at Walmart for under 4 bucks. I couldn’t believe it. I have officially decided to give up my $12+ L’occitane hand cream because its not as thick as Neutrogena.  the hand cream is now a staple of mine!

Drugstore Find

I’ve decided to call any and all my new under $20 drugstore items: drugstore find.

I have been thinking about trying the L’oreal voluminous mascara for quite some time now. I generally use brown, purple, red brown or blue mascaras. My favorite of all those is blue. I always bought the YSL brand because of how nice my lashes would look. Once I found out L’oreal came out with blue, it was fate I had to have it. All I can say is it reminds me of YSL. The blue comes out nice, it smells nice and its under 11 or 12 bucks. I believe its about 8 or 9 bucks. I had to give up my YSL mascara habit because I would have to order online and it cost 30 plus dollars which is a lot even for me because you can’t use mascara over 1 1/2 months because its unsanitary….so happy with my drugstore find. My plans are to stock up on more hello bulk shopping!
