Affordable Drugstore Makeup Most Wanted

Some makeup enthusiasts might think a higher price means higher quality, but that is not at all true! Here are some drugstore makeup picks you don’t want to miss. Best of all, you won’t have to dip into your savings to afford them all.

live clean coconut shampoo

Live Clean Coconut Milk Moisturizing Shampoo & Conditioner

If you are sick of dry winter hair that is full of static, Live Clean has a new line of shampoo and conditioner that is full of moisturizing properties. I was a little disappointed that the products didn’t smell more like coconut and less soapy. Regardless that are so creamy and soft your hair. My favourite things about the line is that it is all natural and affordable making me feel good about buying it!

Annabelle Lipsies Fruity Lip Balm

Annabelle Lipsies Fruity Lip Balm

I’ve been carrying one of these scented lip balms in my purse since I discovered them. Because they are scented like fruit, many older people might dismiss them, but they are great. These lip balm sticks help to soften your lips, while providing great colour. You will be surprised by the vibrant colour that you get from these sticks. It’s a colour and softness that I found last quite a long time. Best of all they are just $4.95! I recommend the cherry or coco-vanilla.

Maybelline Fit Me Matte Poreless Powder

Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Powder

If you are feeling a bit shiny, keep this powder handy for some last minute touch ups. The matching foundation is not too bad either, but the powder is really where it’s at! I like that I can get the rest of my makeup done and then add this final powder to stop annoying shine. I keep it handy after work too so I can get a shine touch-up without having to reapply my makeup. It’s under $10 making it a great investment.

Revlon PhotoReady Prime

Revlon PhotoReady Prime + Anti-Shine

If you need even more shine protection, try starting your makeup routine with this primer. It’s a slick balm that absorbs all of your oil and shine, so that you are ready to face the day. It makes your face feel dry, without drying it out. This primer is the best way to start your day and so much more affordable than most anti-shine primers.

Sally Hansen Velvet Texture Nail Polish

If you want a cool manicure without hitting the salon, these nail polishes can give you something really different. Sally Hansen has developed a textured matte polish. It’s supposed to give the appearance of velvet. I’m not sure if I would go that far, but it does look different than many of the other matte polishes on the market. There are some bright spring shades to get you in the mood for the new season.

Lush Spring ’15 Most Wanted

Lush Spring '15
Lush doesn’t necessarily have a spring line but they do have limited edition St Patrick’s and Easter products and a ton of other products that have a spring-like scent so we put together a list of our Most Wanted spring products.
Grass Shower Gel
Lush Grass Shower Gel
There really couldn’t be a spring list without including Grass. It really does smell like a freshly mown lawn, something we’re all waiting for after all the snow from winter.
Somewhere Over The Rainbow Soap
Lush Somewhere Over The Rainbow Soap
Somewhere Over The Rainbow is a limited edition soap but the scent is one of my new favourites and I hope it makes an appearance in future products. Called Rainbow, this scent is a combination of Neroli, Mandarin and Rose oils and just smells delicious.
Green Bubbleroon
Lush Green Bubbleroon
If you love the Grass shower gel, you might want to pick up a Green Bubbleroon. This bubble bar has way more of a lime scent to it but would go really nicely with Grass. And since it’s easy to split in half you can easily get at least two baths out of it.
Pot O’Gold
Lush Pot O'Gold Shower Jelly
If you’ve never had the experience of using one of Lush’s Shower Jellies, you really need to try it. Try leaving it in the fridge and then taking a chunk with you to the shower. Pot O’Gold is a limited edition St. Patrick’s Day product and if you love Honey I Washed The Kids, there’s a good chance you’ll love it. They say there’s pineapple and oranges in it but all I can smell is the vanilla.
Mask Of Magnaminty
Lush Mask Of Magnaminty
Mint always reminds me of spring and summer but if it’s not your thing, you probably won’t love this mask. The second you open the tub, the scent of mint is everywhere and I love it. You can use this mask on your face and your body to get your skin ready for the skin baring clothes coming up.
