Hello my Dear Readers!.
Today I have some exciting (new to me) wonderful drugstore finds. So much so that I have used all three items up completely, and I will never be without these items….unless of course they are very sadly discontinued.
NYC Big Bold Curl Mascara (Blackest Black); is a mascara that blew my socks off!. The curl and the volume lasts all day without flaking down onto my face and I did not have to scrub my eyeballs off to get this off.When I first opened the mascara the mega sized brush made me think it was not going to give me anything but massive, clumpy lashes. The brush took some getting used to and I think the best way to put this on without getting it all over your eyelids is to tilt your head up, while looking down with your eyes.You can get this at Walmart for 4.47
NYC New York Color Smooth Skin Perfecting Primer When I read the claims of this wonderfully priced primer I honestly was thinking…..NO WAY but I just had to see if it holds up to them and they are as follows:
It makes the difference between a good complexion and an incredible complexion. This magic-maker transforms the texture of your skin, minimizing pores and providing a healthy, silky finish while reducing shine. Tired skin is revived and redness fades. Also is designed to even skin tones and reduce lines.Also formulated with vitamin E.
I have used the entire tube and I will get more. I did not get any blackheads, pimples, nothing bad from using it.This did create a smooth base on my dry skin and sank in fast with no oily, sticky, residue at all. It comes in a 1 fluid ounce squeeze tube at Walmart for 3.57
The last but not least is NYC Smooch Proof 16HR Lip Stain. Mine is in the shade Rock on Ruby. The claims are as follows:
Lasts up to 16 hours. Precise felt-tip applicator allows you to line and define your lips with precision, then fill in with color. The water-based formula provides a natural flush of color and build able coverage when layered to your desire. Wear alone or layer under your favorite gloss or lip stick.
This stayed put all day no question about that and I love a good, long-lasting lip product that will not wear off unevenly, or make my lips drier than they were beforehand. I am amazed at how much I adore this. I wore this on its own without any other lip product over it for a day just to see how it wore. It did not get patchy, it wore off evenly but, still left my lips with a flush. Unless you do not like the matte lip look, or, your lips are chapped, you should like it just fine. For those of you that want to grab them even if your lips are on the drier side just wear a close in color regular or glossy lipstick on top.The downside is that they only have 4 shades at Walmart for 4.30
I hope you have enjoyed this post. Thank you dearly for reading and following my blog!. I will see you soon with another review…. more likely a full face makeup look!. Let me know in the comments what you would like to see next, it would be my pleasure!.
