My Everyday Makeup Look (about 60% drugstore)

1. Moisturizer - Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 15 ($12.19 at Target.com)

This foundation I use everyday, day and night. It doesn't clog pores and protects from the elements with SPF 15, and it gives skin a healthy natural look.

2. Foundation - L'Oreal True Match Lumi in shade Porcelain/ Light Ivory ($12.95 at lorealparisusa.com)

This is my go to foundation. Hands down. When I first started wearing makeup a few years ago, I kind of hopped around from foundation to foundation, not really finding anything that worked good for my combination skin. Then one day, one rainy day while on a trip to Texas, I stumbled upon this foundation that promised luminous skin. It's been my favorite ever since, and I rarely leave the house without it (I actually wear it around the house, that's how much I love it) It never clogs my pores, and it works like a charm.

3. Concealer - Makeup Forever Full Cover Concealer ($32.00 at Sephora.com)

This concealer covers like no other concealer I have ever tried. It blends nicely, but the thick and pigmented formula covers up any blemishes, and can be used to brighten the under eye area as well as line lips.

4. Blush - ELF Hd Blush in shade Superstar ($3 at Walmart.com)

My favorite cream blush, it tops every high end blush I've tried. The formula is creamy and long lasting, and gives cheeks that just-pinched glow! :)

5. Highlighter - Benefit High Beam ($26 at BenefitCosmetics.com)

I use this ALL THE TIME. I bought it about a year ago and my bottle is almost used up because I didn't have the self control to ration it at the beginning ;)

4. Mascara - Dior Addict It Lash ($27.50 at Dior.com)

My eyelashes are naturally black, and already pretty voluminous, so for the longest time I had been searching for a mascara that lengthened and coated my lashes, but without getting all thick and gross. I found the answer in this creative black bottle. The formula is not dry, not wet, and not clumpy. It doesn't even look like you're wearing mascara! (Which I mean in a good way) it coats the lashes so perfectly, it looks like your lashes are just super duper ooper long and have been practically dyed black! It doesn't give the cakey texture that most mascaras do. I. LOVE. IT.

5. Lips - Neutrogena Tinted Lip Balm with SPF 20 in shade Sunny Berry ($9 at Neutrogena.com)

Revitalizing Lip Balm SPF 20
This is my favorite tinted lip balm IN THE UNIVERSE. I love it, it's cheap, and it offers fabulous pigment. It can easily be compared to the high end Sugar balms. 

Have a wonderful day my Sparkles! I hope to be posting again next Sunday with some of my best makeup hacks! - Love, Savvy Rose

My Favorite Drugstore... Facial Scrub

L'Oreal Paris 360 Scrub

Alt Tag Loreal Paris

First Impressions

With all honesty, I bought this product on a whim. I had time to kill, it was cheap, I had some money, it looked unique, and in the end I walked out of Walmart with a pretty full basket of drugstore products that I didn't really need. I was actually pretty excited to try this because the idea of the antibacterial silicone brush sounded pretty unique, and I know in department stores they can cost upwards of $100. This product on the other hand, was only $5.

First Time Using

I did exactly what the directions told me, wetting the brush and squirting on a blob of product. (After getting over the optical illusion that comes with wetting the brush) and instantly I noticed that the product smelled like mangoes. I personally LOVE the smell of mangoes, so that was a plus for me. But I wouldn't recommend it to people who are sensitive to smells. As I swirled it onto my face, I completely fell in love with the brush. The soft bristles massaged and exfoliated, and I felt like my face was actually getting clean. I was instantly in love with this product.

Over The Next Two Weeks

I used it everyday for the next two weeks. You got it! EVERY. DAY. The formula was gentle enough to use on my sensitive skin on a daily basis, and I just loved it! My skin never got irritated, and it was soft and glowing overtime. In the end, I would officially dub this my ALL TIME FAVORITE drug store scrub! I completely fell in love!
