Five on Friday

I'm back for another Five on Friday! This week is all about the drugstore mascaras. Honestly mascara is my least favorite cosmetic item because I have short lashes and it is just easier for me to throw on some falsies and go. I am also terrible at putting on mascara and always get it all over and then have to sit and wait for it to dry to get it off. I am going to share my favorite mascaras all under $10!





Covergirl Flamed Out
This has been my ride or die mascara since high school. It makes my tiny lashes look big and voluminous. I really like the wand it really gets in and coats my lashes. It is a little bigger but small enough to get right on the lash line. You can buy here

Wet N Wild mega length
I really like this one for my lower lash line because the wand is so tiny. I never use it for my top lashes because it really doesn't  add volume or anything but it is perfect for the lower lash line. It is super black and separates and coats every lash. buy here

Covergirl lash blast volume
This mascara will definitely give volume. I like the big wand, it coats the lashes really well, and makes them naturally voluminous and beautiful. You can buy this mascara here

L'oreal telescopic
This is a favorite for length and definition. It does not clump and holds a curl like no other mascara i've tried before. You buy this mascara here 

L'oreal voluminous carbon black
This mascara is one of my all time favorites. It is super super black and gives amazing volume and thickens as well. If you are in need of a great mascara for a great price this is the one to get. You can get this mascara at any drugstore. I got mine from target.


I need to try some new mascaras, what are some of your faves?!

Five on Friday

In 2017 I want to work more on my blog and come up with better content for my readers. So I have decided to start a new series, I used to do five on Friday and it would be all about my favorite things from that week; whether it be clothes, shoes, kids items you name it. This series is going to be called the same thing but I am going to be sharing five of my favorite beauty products. This week is going to be all about my go to drugstore concealers. I know everyone and their mama has a favorite concealer because that is something that is taken very seriously! Nobody wants a creasy or crepey under eye. 



Top 5 favorite drugstore concealers

My all time favorite would have to be Maybelline Fit Me Concealer. The consistency of this formula reminds me of the Nars radiant creamy concealer but a fraction of the cost. I don't get creasy and it doesn't leave that crepey affect that some that are to drying can leave behind. No thank you!

The NYX HD concealer is definitely up there with my maybelline fit me. It isn't drying and if I don't set it right away it doesn't crease. The coverage is fantastic especially because they do have color correctors as well so if you have dark circles and want to use the color corrector and the concealer it isn't going to cake up because it is light weight. You can create a flawless look with this product.

I just recently discovered the new wet n wild concealer and oh my goodness is it amazing!! It reminds me a lot of the Nars concealer as well but this is $3!! If you are on a budget but need a great concealer you should pick this one up. It has great coverage, and works really well under my eyes. I do have to set it but i always set all of my concealers anyway just to prevent creasing throughout the day. 

Another Nyx concealer I really like is the gotcha covered. It is a thick consistency so I didn't really like it at first but once I used it a few times I loved it. It is hydrating and the coverage is crazy. It reminds me a lot of the iT cosmetics bye bye under eye, I think it is definitely a dupe for it. You have to set this right away because it is so hydrating and thick it will crease quick but if you need a lot of coverage under the eye this one is perfect. Just use a tiny amount because a little goes a long way!

My 5th favorite concealer would have to be the L.A. girl pro conceal. I got this off amazing for like $2.99 and it is great. I wouldn't say it is up there with my maybelline and nyx but it is a great concealer. The coverage is good and it doesn't really crease. The only thing I don't like about it is the color it is really yellow but I think if I found a different color in it I would love it. 

I hope this helped if you have been looking for a great concealer but are on a budget. Let me know some of your fave drugstore concealers so I can try them out.
