Top 10 Drugstore Favorites Collab

Hello Everyone!

 My apologies for the missing pictures. My pictures were accidentally deleted off my blog. Please Refer to my Instagram account miss_pilar to view the pictures (or some of the pictures) that were deleted.  
Today I have a collaboration post for you. I was asked by my friend Ashley if I wanted to participate with her and a few other bloggers to compose my favorite top 10 drugstore products. I love these kind of posts because you can find great deals on makeup in the drugstore and a lot of these products work just as good as high end brands. This is also a way for us bloggers to support each other and explore other blogs.

Side Note: I'm so glad that I packed my makeup in a neatly fashion before I moved, it made it that much easier to find all the things I needed lol

These products aren't in any particular order.

1. NYX Butter Lipstick
The name says it all "butter" I only have four of these lipsticks, but they're so easy to apply and last for hours.

2. NYX Butter Gloss
This butter gloss is very impressive! When I started using these glosses last year I was very surprised that they're so pigmented!

3. NYX Eyeshadow Base in white
I love to use the base, especially for bright color eyeshadow because the colors really pop and there isn't much creasing throughout the day.

4. Maybelline Great Lash Mascara in Clear
I use this clear mascara on my brows and on those days I don't feel like wearing black mascara. Since I have long lashes many people think I'm wearing black mascara when I wear this lol.

5. Covergirl Bombshell Volume by Lashblast Mascara
I know that this mascara caused a lot of buzz on the Internet at one point about difficult removal, but I haven't had any issues with it. To be on the safe when I first started using this Mascara, I use coconut oil as a eye makeup remover, and it comes right off.

6. Maybelline The Nudes Palette
This is a great nude palette to add to any makeup collection. The shades blend well together and wear well thought the day. (I have a full review on this palette coming soon)

7.  Nivea Lip Balm
Typically I use MAC Prep+Prime underneath matte lipsticks, but this works just as well! For some of my matte lipsticks, this actually works better. Besides this is a good lip balm to have around in general.

8. Ponds' Wet Cleansing Towelettes
I like to buy these travel sized Ponds Towelettes because they don't dry out as quickly as the regular sized pack. These get most of my makeup off before I cleanse my face. I usually keep a pack in my makeup bag as well.

9. Cetaphil DermaControl Oil Moisturizer
This moisturizer isn't only good to use for skin care of your face, it also is dual product that can be used as a face primer. Cetaphil sent this to me last year for a product review and it has quickly become my new favorite face primer.

10. NYX Lip Pencil

As you probably can tell from this post, I really like NYX products. As much as I love MAC I find these NYX Lip Pencils are a great alternative if you rather not spend $15.00 on a MAC pencil. These lip pencils are very pigmented, non drying, and apply easy on the lips.

I also love the NYX Butter lipsticks, they are so creamy. Pops is my favorite, I wear it almost every day to work!

I love NYX lip products! Both of your lippie favorites from them made my favorites too. My favorite liner from them is Ever. It's such a pretty natural shade! Thanks for joining us Pilar! xo

All NYX products are great especially the lips products

Margo @ PrettyPanda said...

What a great collab post! Love what you chose! For drugstore you can't beat NYX! I have everything you have from NYX as well!

Shireen L. Platt said...

I only have one NYX lip butter lipstick from ipsy and the shade was just okay on me, I really need to try other shades from the range. Great favourites, Pilar and 100% agree with the Nivea lip balm, it's brilliant!

Great round up Pilar! I love NYX lip products. The butters and soft mattes are really nice. Love Cetaphil cleanser. And you & Ashley got me to try eyeshadows from Maybelline. Love their palettes.

I'm loving this collab! You really can't go wrong with NYX. I just got the Maybelline the Nudes palette, and I'm surprised by how much I really like. It's a fantastic palette.

Great post! All Nivea lip balms are just amazing! Must try the nyx butter glosses, i've heard so many great things! Are they sticky at all?
Lora xo

Pilar said...

I know! NYX really impresses me with their lip products! I usually try to get the double pack of Nivea Lip Balms so I'll always have them around!

Pilar said...

Thanks Ashley and you're welcome! I had fun writing this post! Definitely try the NYX Eyeshadow Base in white. It works well with bright color eyeshadow as well as neutral colors!

Pilar said...

Pops is one of my favorite NYX Butter Lipsticks too!

Pilar said...

You're welcome! Glad to take part in this collaboration! I noticed some NYX products made it on a few other bloggers favorites lists too!

Pilar said...

I agree!

Pilar said...

Thanks Margo! I know! I also love when Ulta has NYX products buy one get one half off!

Pilar said...

Thanks Shireen! My collection of NYX Butter is small, but I love the ones I have! I use my Nivea Balm more than I use my MAC Prep+Prime!

Pilar said...

Thanks Marie!

Pilar said...

Thanks Kim! Glad you like Maybelline eyeshadows!

Pilar said...

Thanks Lauren! Maybelline eyeshadows are my favorite brand drugstore eyeshadow!

Pilar said...

Thanks Lora! I don't find the NYX Butter Lipsticks sticky at all. They go on my lips smoothly like butter, and they're very pigmented as well! I hope this helps!

Beth said...

I use Cetaphil products often! I need to try the moisturizer you mentioned!

Pilar said...

The DermaControl Oil Moisturizer is a good moisturizer! I like how you can use it a face primer.

Naturalle Drea said...

I love Nyx lip products!! They are so amazing and great quality. I have that Cover Girl mascara but haven't tried it out yet.

Pilar said...

I received my Cover Girl Mascara for free, but I held out on using it because of all the issues I heard associated with the mascara. I don't find anything wrong with it so far. I use coconut oil to remove this mascara and it comes right off!

Kristen Alpert said...

Great collection you have. Really need to get that pallet love those colors. Question on the lipstick. Does it come off when you drink or if a bottle or use a straw to drink bc I don't like lipsticks that come off like that bc then it gets into your mouth and you can taste it. And does it come in a lot of colors.

Pilar said...

Thanks! The lipstick does come off slighlty, but not terribly, I doesn't get in your mouth. A trick to prevent lipstick from getting in your mouth for future references is stick your index finger in your mouth and take it out. I haven't had any issues with lipstick in my mouth or teeth, but many people say that prevents it. Yes, this lipstick comes in a lot of colors. Hope this info helps!
