Some of my readers told me that they would love to see more posts about the drugstore makeup. So I thought, why not? For the last several weeks I’ve been testing some drugstore makeup items that I was able to find in my collection.
So in July’s favourites I’ve included some of those products.
1.Too Faced Natural Eye Palette
I got this palette back in fall and even made swatches but I just forgot about it until I’ve found it this month. You get 9 pretty eye shadows both matte and shimmery finish. I got mine from the USA for $35. I will be sure to write a detailed review with swatches as soon as I can.
2.Max Factor Lash Extension Effect mascara
I’ve been using this mascara a lot and I love how it divides the lashes and it works perfect for the lower lashes. You can read review and see photos of it here.
3.Max Factor Second Skin foundation in Creamy Ivory
This is one of the best foundations I’ve ever tried and you can find out why here.
4.BECCA Jewel Dust in Asrai
First of all I have to say that I love the package, not only it’s gorgeous but it also has small holes in it so the product stays inside the container. And also, althought it’s not glass, the package doen’t look cheap! As for the shade, it’s so beautiful: iridescent pink with some small glitter. I love dusting it over the cream eye shadows. I promise to write a review later.
5.Rimmel Colour Show Off Lipstick in Pink Gossip
It’s a hot pink lipstick which stays on for a very long time and is great for summer. But I onlyRead More

So this is the 3rd nail polish from the Maybelline collection that I bought last month. I’ve already posted swatches of pastel green and pastel blue nail polishes and now it’s time for sparkling silver which is called Coconut Crystals.
When I saw it in a bottle I thought that it was just a clear nail polish with tiny slver glitter but it turned out that I was wrong. It’s a silvery shade (not clear) with tiny silver glittery parts.
I guess you can achieve an opaque silver shade but I like it sheer and shiny! On the photo I am wearing only 1 coat of nail polish.
I am sure that you can see the tiny silver glitter in it.
Anyway, I am very happy with this shade and the price of the product. I am wearing it for the 3rd day already and it looks great.
Prepare to see even more Maybelline nail polish swatches in the future because I got all shades that they had in the store
I liked some nail polishes so much that I had to get the same colours for the giveaway so stay tuned. And now you can take a part in this giveaway. Good luck !Read More
