Rain Drops on Roses.

I hate spending money.  Hate.  I always feel like I'm going to regret my purchase really quickly, and feel all gross inside.  So I tend to buy things pretty cheap.  You know what?  I don't even feel like I'm missing out.  Quite the contrary.  My favorite cosmetics are all from Walgreens.  My favorite hair products are from Wal-Mart.  My favorite clothes are from Forever 21.

I've gotten into a make-up routine that I can see myself keeping for the rest of time.  Or until my face changes, or whatever.

Which brings me to:

A Few of my Favorite Things  {Cosmetic's Edition}.

Maybelline Dream Mouse Foundation
This stuff changed my life.  It covers all my facial flaws and blemishes.  It is light and airy.  And it is awesome. By far, the best foundation I have ever used.

NYC Blushable Cream Stick
I love how dewy this makes my cheeks look.  I am a huge advocate for cream blush.  I think it's way more natural looking than powder.  On me, anyway.

Almay Liquid Eyeliner
I've been using this stuff since I was allowed to wear make-up.  The brush is way easy to handle, and the line is not too harsh.

If you want to learn how to do a perfect cat-eye, I totally recommend checking out this video.  It's simple, and really helped me improve my make up routine.
Maybelline Falsies Mascara
I am super picky, when it comes to mascara.  I have tried almost any type of mascara you can name--and this one has come out on top.  It is so fantastic. 

Covergirl Outlast Lipstain
It took me a long time to warm up to the idea of lipstain . . . but as soon as I realized that I could eat an ice cream cone, and keep my lipstick on, I was sold.  It takes a few times to really feel comfortable with the product, but if you can color in the lines, you can do this.  And your lips will look perfect, all day.

Covergirl Wetslicks Fruit Lipgloss

I'm not finished until I have lipgloss on.  This stuff isn't heavy at all, and tastes awesome.  I've been using this stuff for a few years, and haven't found a lipgloss that I like more.  

How about you guys?  What are your favorite products?  I'm always open to finding new gems.  As long as I can get them at Walgreens.  Ha ha.

So I totally read this then went to wal mart to get the lip stain. I came home right away and put it on. I LOVE it. Thanks for sharing!!

I'm so glad! I bet it looks awesome on you. What shade did you choose? I'm always on the hunt for a good color.

I love lip stain, but haven't tried Cover Girls. Now I need to buy this stuff.

I am a big fan of Revlon's lip stain (it comes with a balm on one side too).

I decided for the Cinnamon shade. It has another part to the name but I can't think of what it's called. ha but my skin tone matches up with browns really good. I think reds and pinks look good on you. What kind do you get?

That sounds gorgeous! I'm sure it looks awesome. Thanks, girl! You sound like you know what you're talking about. I don't even know what shades are complementary for me, or whatever. You should teach me!

I have some sort of berry color. It's like a deep pink. I wear it almost every day. It's so great!
