Hey guys, I only like buying HE things when i have to. I really need to find a new face powder and i want to try a face primer so anyone have any drugstore favorites for these things? Tell me any other drugstore products that you like too! Thanks all <3 you guys

Some of my favorite drugstore items are:

Maybelline Baby Lips

Hard Candy Blush Crush Baked Blush 

Revlon Photoready Airbrush Mousse Foundation

CoverGirl Lashblast Volume 

Revlon Grow Lascious Eyeliner 

Covergirl Lipstains
Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Concealer

Maybelline Dream Mouse Blushes
Maybelline Define-a-Lash Mascara
Maybelline 24-Hour Color Tattoos 

L'oreal Telescopic Mascara

Almay Liquid Eyeliner

Wet n Wild Eyeshadow Palettes 

Wet n Wild Nail Polish

I havent seen any drugstore brand primers around me, but I haven't really had a look either....

Powder wise, I love Cover Girl Pressed Powder, I always have one or two in my makeup stash.

Revlon Bronzer is great too.

Annabelle eye liners are my absolute favorite, better then any high end brand in my opinion.

Maybelline Dream Mousse foundations are also good, I always have one as a back up when I run out of my regular foundation (like now, lol)

Maybelline Mascaras can't be beat in my opinion either.

@Tulipp I also love Color Tattoo and WnW's palettes and i want to try the blushes, they look awesome

@katana I want to try a bronzer badly but i'm really pale maybe i'll pick up a revlon one because the price will be a lot better then the Too Faced one i have my eye on :p /emoticons/[email protected] 2x" width="20" height="20" /> and i really need to try annabelle's stuff, i always hear wonderful things about them 

Some of my favorite products at the moment are

Milani Face Powder

Maybelline Falsies mascara

Milani black liquif eye liner

Maybelline 24hr tattoo eye shadows

Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter

Neutrogena healthy skin liquid foundation

Maybelline  Falsies.. best mascara ever. I think I have repurchased this more than 10 times!

@Isabelsjewely i think they are slightly tinted and looked waaay too dark for my skin 

@geniabeme I don't even think i've owned 10 mascaras in my lifetime LOL 

I love everything by Physicians Formula! Especially from the shimmer strips line. L'oreal Infallible eyeshadows, revlon lipbutters, L'oreal double extend illuminator mascara.

L'Oreal mascaras are my favorite (For volume - Voluminous with collagen/ for length - DOUBLE EXTEND <3 / for both the new voluminous extend (in the gold tube)!

I've been looking for a good drugstore eye primer as well... I've heard that any 24 hour eyeshadow in a light color can act as a decent primer.

I hate when my eyes crease up! ):

Oh, and does anyone know of any good *dark* *MATTE* bronzers? I have yet to find a good dark kind that isn't shimmery and I don't really like shimmery bronzer for daytime wear!

Probably my favorite foundation is Covergirl's Clean Sensitive Skin Foundation in ivory. A bottle lasts me about 6 months, and for 6 dollars, I'm WAY happy. A great slightly...gosh I forget the word...the opposite of matte but not quite sparkly.... powder is NYC's Smooth Skin in translucent. I just use a blush brush for touchups and I look cute :D /emoticons/[email protected] 2x" width="20" height="20" /> I also like NYC's lipsticks. They're less drying than more expensive ones.

I'd recommend Maybelline's Dream Matte Powder for anyone. I've been using it for years and won't ever use anything else as it works fantastically! 

Hard Candy's primers are okay, I use them but they feel very oily to me. I actually end up using the Sheer Envy in the clear primer then using a color corrector by Coastal Scents (discontinued) to make my own color primers.

@Zadidoll do you notice a difference when you use primer? i want it to help my foundation stay better but if the difference is barely noticeable then i probably won't get one lol

I love Maybelline's mascaras, Maybelline Color Tattoo, Revlon Colorstay 24h liquid makeup (I hate the eyeliner though), some Almay mascaras and Loreal shadows (HIP)

I hear Hard Candy has great primers!

Hey bluestar! Revlon Grow Lascious Eyeliner is really good, it is my holy grail drugstore eyeliner!

Really? Thanks for the suggestion bcs I love the mascara! I'll try it of you say the eyeliner is just as good ^^
