Top Drugstore Foundation/Concealer/Mascara Review

Hi guys!

Today I wanted to review 3 of my most current favorite drugstore beauty finds.





RIMMEL'S CLEAN FINISH FOUNDATION

I discovered this foundation a couple of weeks ago at the drugstore, just in passing. For the most part, I love Rimmel products and when I saw that this foundation was only $3.99 I said I had to give it a shot.

This foundation is meant to make your pores disappear, it has vitamins A and E, it is fragrance free and is super light weight. The first thing I noticed with this foundation was that it wasn't very liquidy. When you try to shake it, it just kind of stays in the bottle, not moving. When you open it up, the lid has an attachment, like a  flat applicator with which you can pick up the foundation and apply it to your face.
That is what I did. Once I dotted it all over my face, I blended it with a flat top brush.

The consistency of this foundation is creamy but it dries on your face pretty quickly so you have to blend it in fairly quickly as well.

It has a matte finish and it really does make your pores appear smaller. It stays on pretty much all day and does not make you look oily at the end of the night (i have combination skin and usually my face gets pretty oily over the course of the day).

Overall I would give this foundation a 7/10 rate. The packaging could have been better!

My shade is 230 Warm Ivory 







MAYBELLINE SUPERSTAY BETTER SKIN CONCEALER

I have been loving this concealer but it definitely cannot replace my Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer (that is still my number 1). This particualr concealer is meant to be used both on your dark circles as well as your spots. I think it works great at hiding any spots you might have but not the best at hiding dark circles. Don't get me wrong, it still gets the job done but not as good as the Age Rewind one. I still think this is an amazing concealer. 

The consistency is very creamy and easy to blend and it pretty much stays on for most of the day. I use a powder on top of it. I would definitely recommend it.

I would give this concealer a 8/10 only because I have the worst dark circles and this almost covers them completely. 

My shade is 10 Ivory



L'OREAL VOLUMINOUS MISS MANGA ROCK MASCARA 


 This mascara is honestly one of the best mascaras I have ever tried. I have tried the original one as well which is amazing but the"Rock" version is definitely a step up. It gives a lot of volume and also lengthens your eyelashes. 

The brush has little combs all around which pretty much combs through your eyelashes as you brush it through. It is AMAZING and my favorite find from all 3 products.

I would rate this mascara a 10/10 and recommend it to everyone!

I got the blackest black one and it looks super dramatic on.





Left has two coats of mascara and right has no mascara







Below, I have attached a video of me applying all of these product to my face. Hope you guys check it out and I hope you enjoyed this post!
