Favorite Drugstore Makeup Finds

Good morning!

It’s Monday and it’s raining here, which would be great if I could stay

home all day, but unfortunately I have to head out to work.

Today I wanted to share three products I’ve recently tried. I purchased all of them

at our local CVS Pharmacy. They are easy to find and inexpensive. Yeah!

The great thing about purchasing them at CVS is, if I don’t like something,

I can return it and get my money back. Perfect!

  • Revlon Colorstay gel eyeliner.

I use brown and I love this product, because of the container.


The brush is stored in the top. It’s a great idea, because you don’t have to spend time

looking for your eyeliner brush each time you use it.

  • Maybelline New York Expert Wear Eyeshadow Duos in Browntones.

As we age, neutral colors look the best on us. I want my eyes to look good but I don’t

want to wear colors that are glittery or are going to show off my lines and wrinkles.

This is a beautiful neutral color. I use an off white eyeshadow over my entire lid

and then add both of these colors. It’s a very soft and natural look. Perfect for my age.

  • Maybelline New York Lash Discovery Washable Mascara in black.

This mascara is great for adding length to your lashes and the brush is small

for hard to reach lashes, like mine. I have short eyelashes and I don’t want to

wear mascara that will make them look clumpy. Love this mascara!

If you have a great drugstore find, please share it with us! 

Beauty for the Heart~~“I could not help but think that somewhere along the way

we had missed what was radical about our faith and replaced it with

what is comfortable.” ~David Platt

I love that quote, I want to be radical with my faith, Jesus says in Luke 9:23,

“Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take

up their cross daily and follow me.”

Let’s pick up our crosses and follow Jesus today!

Picking The Right Foundation~Liquid Foundations

Good morning ladies!

This week we’re talking about picking the right foundation for your face.

Yesterday, we talked about mineral foundations and tinted moisturizers.

Today, we’re going to talk about liquid foundations.

Liquid foundations have been around forever but the liquid foundations today

aren’t the same foundations our mothers and grandmothers wore.

Today’s liquid foundations are much better!

Liquid Foundation is ideal for: All Skin types. 

Liquid foundations offer sheer to medium coverage and have a very natural look.

You can buy good liquid foundations at your local drugstore. L’Oreal and Revlon

both have great liquid foundations and are very reasonably priced.

You can also visit a local mall and have professional makeup artists help you.

MAC and Bobbi Brown are both known for their great liquid foundations.

What does liquid foundation do?

Liquid foundations even out the skin tone by smoothing out any unevenness.

It helps cover up blemishes and fine lines and can take years off your appearance.

Oily Skin:

If you have oily skin, you’ll want to look for a liquid foundation that says “oil-free”.

Dry Skin:

Use an oil-based liquid foundation. Stay away from the matte finishes because they

make dry skin look lifeless, dull and chalky. Also make sure you use a good moisturizer

before applying your foundation.

Acne Skin:

If you have acne prone skin choose an “oil free”  foundation.

Look for the word “noncomedogenic” on the label, or “salicylic acid”

listed in the ingredients.

These foundations will keep pores more clear than other foundation varieties would.

They help you keep new breakouts from surfacing and cover up the

acne you already have.

Mature Skin:

If you have more mature skin liquid foundation can cover up fine lines and wrinkles.

Choose a foundation that moisturizes the skin and evens out your skin tone.

Liquid foundation can give you a more youthful glow! Woo hoo!

How to apply liquid foundation:

Use a makeup sponge or a foundation brush.

Beauty For the Heart~~Christ’s love for us should compel us to love.

1 Corinthians 13:4-8  “Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast;

it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful;

it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things,

believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends. As for prophecies,

will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away.”

As Christians we need to be sharing Christ’s love.

Many people may only see Christ by seeing our lives~So Love Well!

How can you show Christ’s love this week?

Lipstick That Lasts All Day!

Good Morning and Happy Cyber Monday! I feel the sudden urge to order something online just to say I was a part of the big day. It’s estimated that over $1 billion dollars will be spent on Cyber Monday. Are you kidding me??

That. is. un. be. lievable!

Well, I don’t have any great cyber deals to tell you about today but I do have some amazing lipstick to share with you. I don’t know about you but I look better with a touch of color on my lips. The only problem is I don’t like having to reapply it every hour just to get the look I want.

Revlon has a liquid lipstick that stays on ALL day. Now that’s my kind of lipstick!

The Revlon Ultimate Lipstick is:

  • Food-proof lipcolor with a built-in, ultra-conditioning topcoat
  • One-step application- No topcoat required for comfortable wear
  • Stays comfortable and wears beautifully
  • Does not feather or fade; no touch-ups required, even after meals

I have wore all day lipsticks before but they dried my lips out so bad that I couldn’t wear them. Because this one has a conditioning topcoat it keeps my lips moisturized. I also put lip balm on my lips at night before I go to bed especially at this time of year.

Tip: The color I like is Iconic Iris but I noticed it looked a little too pink for this season so I added a plum lip liner. I bought Maybelline Color Sensation Lip Liner.

So if you need to change the color of your lipstick try adding a lighter or darker shade of  lip liner. It works great!

What’s your favorite lipstick? Let us know!

 

Beauty For the Heart: With the holidays in full swing it’s easy to think we need to buy and buy and buy and buy. But truthfully most of us have more than we need. I love this reminder from Matthew 6: 19-21, “Don’t store up treasures here on earth, where moths eat them and rust destroys them, and where thieves break in and steal. Store your treasures in heaven, where moths and rust cannot destroy, and thieves do not break in and steal. Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be”. Today store up treasures in heaven by spending time in God’s word. Believe me that will be better than any Cyber Monday deal you can find!
