Best Drugstore Products of 2015

*None of these products are in specific order and each product will have short and sweet description*

1. Maybelline Fit Me Poreless Foundation
- This foundation has amazing coverage and very long wearing, which has it sitting up their with my high end foundations.

2.Maybelline Better Skin Foundation
- This foundation is long wearing and gives a nice satin finish. It definitely gives the skin a nice radiant glow.

3.Maybelline Better Skin Concealer
- I love this concealer. Its one of my top 5. It covers dark circles and doesn't wear off through out the day.

4. NYX Conceal, Correct, Contour Palette
- The orange corrector in this palette is so good. It fills in my lines and covers all my dark circles. I also use the top left color to sculpt out my brows.

5. NYX Full Coverage Concealer
- This is what i use when i don't want much of a highlight under my eyes and want a more natural look. Is full coverage and blends out nicely.

6. Stardel 106 STACKED on Stardel 415
- These are my drama lashes. Stacked together they are full, flared, look at me lashes that I love on date night or a night out with my girls.

7. Duo Lash Glue
- I have been using this glue for 5 years and it has never failed me. Lashes shay on all day and they have a glue for every type of lash and in a clear and dark formula. My favorite one is the green one because it is brush on, making the glue application clean and easy.

8. No 7 Beautifully Matte Base
- I have very oily skin so i need a very matte primer. This primer does leave a white cast but it doesn't effect the color of your foundation once applied. Doesn't cause flaking and long lasting.

9. Maybelline Master Prime by FaceStudio in Blur + Smooth Formula
- I like this primer for day time wear. Like when I know I am going to church or lunch. Its very light weight and very smoothing. I'll put this on before my No 7 Beautifully Matte Base so there is no texture on my face.

10. Black Opal Deluxe Finishing Powder
- This is my go to finishing powder. I love it and it sets my face so flawlessly. I also like how finely grained the powder is so it is easier to buff into the skin.

11. NYX Powder Contour Palette
- This powder contour palette is quite impressive. It has good colors for various skin tones and has some nice highlighter colors that aren't mostly glitter. Also has a nice yellow set color for under the eyes.

12. NYX Matte and Dewy Setting Spray
- These setting sprays are so worth the money they are up there with the Kat Von D Lock It Setting Spray. It doesn't have the relaxing cucumber scent but it works just as good. The thing I love most is the matte setting spray still makes my highlight pop and the dewy setting spray doesn't make me get oily but very luminous.

13. NYX Butter Glosses
- Really nice glosses that are not thick and sticky. My favorite color at the moment is Fortune Cookie.

14. NYX Eyebrow Gel
- Just as good as the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade. It doesn't dry out which I like the most and it sets my eyebrow hairs in place too.

15. Jordana Blushes
- You can get it from the 99 cent store or the beauty supply store and it works nicely. Good pigmentation and great price.

16. Milani Blushes
- Milani Blushes are the Queen of drugstore blushes. They have beautiful colors and some even have highlighter in them leaving a luminous sheer color to the cheek.

17. Rimmel Lash Accelerator
- This mascara is great because of its formula but its especially great because of it's brush. Its small enough to get all the lashes top and BOTTOM without leaving some under your lash line.

18. NYX Skinny Mascara
- I use this mascara on top of the rimmel lash accelerator on my bottom lashes. The NYX Skinny mascara brush seperates all my lashes on the bottom making them look big and and thick.

19. Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara
- This is my hurry up and go mascara because it flares out my lashes making it seem like I'm wearing falsies.

20. Wet n Wild Fergie Highlighters
- Both the Rose Gold and the Rose Champagne highlighters look good on all skin tones. They also give this amazing glow to the skin when the light hits the high points of the face. Another plus is that the pans are huge and domed. It will take a very long time to hit pan on these.

21. NYX HD Eyeshadow Base
- This base is white but blends out to a clear color. Makes shadows stay on all day.

22. NYX Shadow Bases
- These bases come in white, white pearl, skin tone, and black. The skin tone shade is a light brown color. These bases are very pigmented and make shadows and pigments pop. Thick in consistency but not cakey. Dupe to the MAC paint pots.

23. E.L.F Hydrating Under Eye Primer
- I love this under eye primer. Because under the eye skin is very sensitive it is easy for it to become dry and form fine lines. The way to combat this is to use primer under the eye with something hydrating. You should use an under eye primer if you use a heavy concealer and/or bake under the eye.

24. Blistex
- Good ol' blistex is used to hydrate the lips and stop chapping. When winter comes around I use this if I have splits or if my lips are really dry after I exfoliate them. This leaves my lips feeling smooth and moisturized.

25. Shea Moisture Lip Exfoliator
- This is basically a lip scrub in lipstick form. I apply it to the lips a few times and then rub my lips together to scrub off the dead skin. I don't use it all the time because I like my scrub from LUSH but when I need my lips to be super smooth before a lipstick application I grab this.
