One of my favorite drugstore brands is NYX, there lip products are ahhhmazing! The NYX soft matte lip creams are worth every rave and compliment! All of NYX products are made in Taiwan.
Rimmel London has great foundations that don’t break me out! I love the Rimmel London Wake me Up foundation and concealers. The Rimmel London matte foundation is also great for people with oily skin! The Kate Moss lipsticks have great pigmentation and feel soft on the lips. Rimmel London products are usually made in England with some products made in Monaco.
Revlon has some great foundations and lipsticks. There are beauty gurus that swear by their photo-ready foundation. Plus, the Revlon super lustrous lipsticks feel super soft on the lips. Many Revlon lip products are made in the US. Some Revlon foundations, concealers, and powders are made in China.
ELF (eyes lip face) is one of the most popular drugstore brands. ELF is known for its unbeatable prices with makeup brushes starting at only $1 and powders for only $3! For makeup beginners, ELF brushes are a great start. I’ve had my ELF eyeshadow brushes for almost 2 years and they have still held up after monthly washes. All ELF products are manufactured in China.
Simple products are perfect for people with sensitive skin. I looooove their moisturizers and cleansing micellar water. Their moisturizer never breaks me out and keeps my skin hydrated. Plus, their micellar water removes all of my eye makeup without irritating my eyes. Simple products are made in the USA.
Neutrogena has great skincare and makeup items. When I first started wearing foundation, I loved to use the Neutrogena Healthy skin foundation. The light foundation gives me a dewey finish and is super easy to blend out because of its watery consistency. When I started breaking out, I used the Neutrogena skin clearing foundation. The salicylic acid in the foundation kept my breakouts at bay. Plus, Neutrogena’s grapefruit scrub is one of my favorites. I love the fruity scent and I especially love how soft my skin feels after using it. And we can’t forget about Neutrogena’s ahhhmazing makeup cleansing wipes and their fabulous sheer dry sunscreen. Neutrogena products are made in the following countries: Germany, USA, and the UK.
Bourjois is one of my favorite UK brands. When I went to Canada, I knew I had to stock up on some of these fabulous products. I love the Bourjois healthy mix serum foundation. The serum tones and brightens my skin while the foundation covers and blurs imperfections. Bourjois products are made in France.
Covergirl is one of those trusted makeup brands that everyone has in their collection. I remember buying my first bottle of foundation when I was in Middle School Personally, I love their mascaras. The Supersizer mascara adds both volume and length to my short lashes. Another great mascara for people with straight lashes is their Bombshell Curvacious mascara. And the IntesifyMe eyeliner gives me the perfect cat-eye every time! Covergirl foundation, powders, and eyeshadow are made in the USA. Their eyeliners and mascara are mostly made in Germany.
Who hasn’t seen a Maybelline commercial? Maybe she’s born with it…maybe it’s…. Who couldn’t finish that sentence? Maybelline has great products. I love their Babylips lip balms and their FitMe concealers and foundations. Tati from GlamLifeGuru raves about the FitME concealers all the time. And of course, YouTube made me buy it. They also have a rocket mascara that I have been wanting to try for ages! I’ve seen Claire mentioning the mascara as one of her favorites. All in all, if YouTube says its good, then I’m buying it. Maybelline products are made in the USA.
Pacifica Beauty is not mentioned often but I’ve recently discovered this brand and fell in love! Their makeup wipes are amazing and they smell like summer with a delicious coconut scent. The wipes are gentle and remove all of my waterproof liner and mascara. I use their eyeshadow palettes every. single. morning. And I even featured their products in a video!
Almay is one of those go-to brands I always reach for. I needed makeup for prom and what did I grab in CVS? Almay blush, lipstick, and concealer. What I love about Almay is that there is always a coupon and you know me, I love a good deal. Currently, I’m using the Almay lash care eye makeup remover. I love that this eye makeup remover takes off my mascara without rubbing off my lashes. I actually stopped wearing mascara for a few months for this very reason. I kept losing lashes whenever I took my mascara off. But now, it’s no longer a problem! Almay foundations, concealers, and mascaras are made in the USA. Their eyeliners are made in Germany like many other drugstore eyeliners. Almay’s newest smart shade powder blush is made in China.
