spring drugstore makeup

Much of my favorite new makeup this season is from the drugstore where beauty brands are really stepping up their offerings. I first tried the Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer a couple of months ago and haven’t used anything else since, the color is light and buildable and the compact smells vaguely of a tropical vacation. The quality and color selection of L’Oreal’s Infallible Eyeshadow is shocking considering the price — I’m collecting more shades with each trip but my favorites right now are Amber Rush and Glistening Garnet. Milani’s Everyday Eyes Eyeshadow palette in Bare Necessities is the perfect range of neutrals to travel with if you’re packing light. Sonia Kashuk’s Bronzer/Blush Duo is really glowy, makes doing makeup quick and is more natural looking while the NYX Ombre Blush is more bright so I’ll just tap it on lightly for a pretty flush of color. Revlon’s Ultra HD Matte Lipstick is the most comfortable liquid, matte lipstick I’ve tried — not only that, it smells delicious and stays on so well. Let me know below if you have a favorite new drugstore makeup launch I should try!
