And yes, even though, these products are from your local drugstore, they are amazing.

So here you are, this is the list of my 5 favourite drugstore makeup products in all their glory.

PHYSICIANS FORMULA BUTTER BRONZER

5 favourite drugstore makeup products, bronzer, L'Oreal Paris, mascara, foundation, plus size, curvy fashion blogger

First and foremost let me tell you this…this bronzer smells like a day on the beach. Literally, like a perfect day on the beach. Coconut-y and divine. But secondly and most importantly, this is one amazing bronzer. The color, pigmentation and application of this bronzer is just perfect. And did I mention that it smells goood.

L’OREAL PARIS LE MATTE LIPSTICK

Ok, this lipstick is one of my favourite lipstick so far this year. I just love it. Color is perfect and application so easy and precise. And it does feel amazing on your lips. Big like for me.

L’OREAL PARIS TRUE MATCH FOUNDATION

If you are following me for a while then you know that this one is obvious choice on my list (it actually made on couple of my lists before). And to be totally honest, this is my FAVOURITE foundation ever. I use it more then I use any of my other foundations (and I have quite many).

It is a perfect foundation for every day. It gives me just a perfect coverage without making my face looking like a mask. With this foundation my face looks perfect and dewy.

L’OREAL PARIS VOLUMINOUS ORIGINAL MASCARA

Ok, this post is starting to look like a list of my  favourite L’Oreal Paris products (but I do love them) and I am sorry for that, but this next product on the list is my ultimate favourite. If they ever discontinue this mascara I will be devastated.

It is that amazing. It is the best mascara ever (drugstore or not). And I have tried a lot of mascaras, and there are some amazing ones out there, but for the (at lest) 12 years, none of them de-throne this little one. If that doesn’t prove how much I love it, nothing will.

MAYBELLINE DREAMLUMI HIGHLIGHTIN CONCEALER

Last but not least, my favourite highlight concealer that can easily run shoulder to shoulder with those luxurious ones is the this little Maybelline DREAMLUMI concealer, and for a fraction of the cost. It really is amazing product. It gives you an amazing coverage and perfect highlight. Try it, you will not be disappointed.

And here they are, list of my 5 favourite drugstore makeup products. And to show you that I really love all of them is the fact that 3 of them I am using for more then 5 years (or more).

My 5 Favourite Nude Lipsticks

5 nude lipsticks, YSL, MAC, Estee Lauder, Too Faced, L;Oreal Paris, lipstick, makeup, beauty, curvy fashion blogger for women over 35,

Wearing Too Faced Chocolate Milkshake

I have always been a nude lipstick kind of girl. I started dipping into the dark (bright) lips section until recently, so nudes are really important to me. And therefore it is natural to have a post about my 5 favourite nude lipsticks. And if you are interested to see some of the other posts about my favourite lipsticks here and here. So let’s start.

Too Faced Melted Chocolate – Chocolate Milkshake

5 nude lipsticks, YSL, MAC, Estee Lauder, Too Faced, L;Oreal Paris, lipstick, makeup, beauty, curvy fashion blogger for women over 35,

If you are following me on Instagram (and I know you do) you already know that I am obsessed with this nude lipstick. Color is amazing (with the brownish undertone) and application is easy and amazing. Even though I am not really fan of this applicator for liquid lipstick, that is the only negative thing that I can say about this lipstick (and the fact that I always end up with it on my teeth, but that is totally different story).

Estee Lauder 120 Desirable

Velvety smooth lipstick with the slight pink undertone, that leaves you with an amazing nude color on your lips. You will definitively fall in love with this shade.

MAC Blankety (with MAC Spice pencil)

5 nude lipsticks, YSL, MAC, Estee Lauder, Too Faced, L;Oreal Paris, lipstick, makeup, beauty, curvy fashion blogger for women over 35,

I used this lipstick the longest from all of the rest on this list, and that says something about it. I just love it. It is on the lighter nude spectrum, but it goes perfectly with MAC Spiced lip liner.

L’Oreal Paris Le Matte 102 She’s So Matte

5 nude lipsticks, YSL, MAC, Estee Lauder, Too Faced, L;Oreal Paris, lipstick, makeup, beauty, curvy fashion blogger for women over 35,

5 nude lipsticks, YSL, MAC, Estee Lauder, Too Faced, L;Oreal Paris, lipstick, makeup, beauty, curvy fashion blogger for women over 35,

This one is also my latest obsession. I always loved L’Oreal Lipsticks but this one (well all the colors from this collection) is my favourite. Being in the pencil shape its is so easy to apply it (and so precise) and it lasts for such a long time.

YSL Rouge Volupté 3 Ultimate Beige

5 nude lipsticks, YSL, MAC, Estee Lauder, Too Faced, L;Oreal Paris, lipstick, makeup, beauty, curvy fashion blogger for women over 35,

YSL lipstick is a perfect mix of lip gloss, lipstick and lip balm and an amazing nude shade. Nothing much to say except it is amazing.

So those are my 5 favourite nude lipsticks and I hope you like the selection. Do you have one that is not on the list, that you can recommend? Let me know in your comments.

What is in My Makeup Bag?

I love makeup. So much that when I was little girl, I had an agreement with my mother that I should give up the bottle (I was two) if I want to have makeup. Because,this was her reasoning,  the big girls who use makeup do not have baby bottles. She did not had to convince me for a long time. That bottle was out of the house faster then you could say…liquid lipstick.

Of course, she did tricked me by giving me some coloured lip glosses (cheater) or some almost used eyeshadows that I would end up using all over my face…not a pretty sight. But every time I could get my hands on someones makeup bag…oh, that was a holiday for me. My poor aunt got her makeup bag ransacked every time she came for visit (she learned pretty soon not to carry  only old things that she did not mind being stollen or destroyed by me). Now she teases me that I owe her so much makeup.

So nowadays it is not surprise that I love makeup even more. And that brings us to the topic of this post (I rumble a lot)…What is in my makeup bag?

I have to explain this one. This bag is my smallest one. I usually carry two makeup bags (I know, I know). In the bigger one, I usually carry the things that mostly never change. Brush, perfume, hear band,, lotions..those kind of things, but in the smaller one I keep makeup. And that changes depends of what I am doing or when was the last time I was cleaning it…sometimes in there it can be just a couple of lipsticks, but sometimes can be so many products that I would need a bigger bag.  But at this particular time this is what ended up in my small little pouch.
