Best Drugstore Mascara







Hi, Beauties! I'm doing a round up of my all time favorite drugstore mascaras and newbies that have made that list too! I'll also have a round up with my all time High-end Mascara coming to you soon! Just a background on my lashes they are thin, short and straight you will find that I like anything lengthening and volumizing. I've tried many mascaras, but this lineup here hasn't failed me. 


L'Oreal Voluminous Original Mascara • L'Oreal • $7.99
I've been using this mascara for years. An oldie but goodie! I also use this mascara in my makeup kit.

Maybelline Great Lash Waterproof Mascara • Maybelline • $5.99
This mascara is another one I keep in my kit. It's the best waterproof drugstore mascara hands down.

L'Oreal Telescopic Mascara • L'Oreal • $9.99
Another one I've used for years. The brush is so unique and you really get the length from root to tip and is buildable. It is also great on the bottom lashes.

Pixi by Petra® Lower Lash Mascara Black Detail - 0.13oz • Pixi • $11
This mascara wand is nothing like I've seen from High-End or Drugstore. I have very thin lower lashes and this combs through them individually and precisely, making them stand out. Love it!

Maybelline Volum' Express The Colossal Big Shot Mascara • Maybelline • $7.99
This came out this year and I instantly liked it. It separates, defines and gives you a bold look.

L'Oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise Waterproof Mascara • L'Oreal • $9.99
If you love Too Faced Better Than Sex than you will love this mascara. It is even better and on the plus side, it's affordable. LOVE!

June Favorites

This has been my go-to palette for the summer and it smells peachy, but not strong. Its a beautiful warm neutral palette (like I don't have enough) and I love that I can go from a natural look to a bold look. I've also enjoyed using this palette on my Brides. My only issue with this palette are the shimmers, I get more pigment when I apply it with my finger. 

This produces well like high-end setting sprays like Mac Fix+, Urban Decay and the list can go on. It does exactly what it says! The scent is heavenly and the spray is so fine that I don't want to stop spraying it. I love that its affordable, but I will warn you it is hard to find in stores, its always sold out, but if you find it definitely get it!

 When I'm in a hurry or just want to add some color back to my face I have been reaching for this wonderful stick. I dab or draw it on (depending on how strong of a contour I want), it glides on smooth, blends well and looks natural. Super easy to use and its affordable. Highly recommend! 

I love gel brow products and when Benefit came out with their new line of brow products I had to give it a try, especially this one. This is a cream-gel formula and it comes with a built-in brush. I can't get enough of this product, I love that I can achieve a natural to bold brows and they don't budge I when I'm swimming with the kids. The product does dry up, but a drop of eye drops fixes it right up.

What's in my pool bag?


Summer is officially here and given the Texas heat you will definitely catch me and my family cooling off at the pool often. 

My tote includes my favorite stylish shades, capflip flops and suncreen. When I'm soaking up the sun I enjoy listening to jams and I love my waterproof phone case to keep my phone dry. 

I hope you find this helpful and inspires you to plan ahead before you head to the pool or beach. Leave me a comment and let me know what is your must have in your pool bag.
