drugstore favorites.


Covergirl LashBlastLength (around $7)- I love lengthening mascaras! The great thing about this mascara is that its made with nylon so the formula doesn't go on too heavy, clump, or flake on you. In fact, the formula is so light, I don't have to re-curl my lashes after I apply this mascara! And if I want to reapply after a few hours, I don't have to worry about clumping because this formula goes on so smoothly. Major definition and length.  

Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse (around $8)- The texture of this product is unlike anything I've tried before. There's really nothing to compare this product to. Medium coverage, light weight, and never looks caked on. Use extra moisturizer when wearing this product because it can look patchy if you have dry skin.

Covergirl Outlast Lipstain (around $7)- I'm not a lipstick person. I just bought a tube of lipstick the other day because I felt like I needed to just go for it. Needless to say, it didn't work out so I went out and bought a few more tubes of this lipstain. My favorite thing about this product is that IT DOESN'T GET ON YOUR TEETH! Cause I get so distracted when people have lipstick on their teeth, I don't even listen to what they have to say. Oh and it smells great as well!

So I definitely want to buy the lipstain, but I've never used a stain before, so I read some reviews, and a lot of them were negative. The biggest one is that they dry out too quickly.

So 2 questions:
-How long have you been using it?
-Which shade is your favorite?

Oooh I have all three of those! =]
I really like the mascara and the mousse foundation for the same reasons as you. And I like the lipstain too but I find it hard to apply on evenly sometimes.

@Melis I gotta try "Flirty Nude"! Its always sold out whenever I'm at the store though!

@armor&lace I've been using them for about a year now and my favorite shades are "Bit of Blossom" and "Sassy Mauve". Great alternatives to the "Red lip". If I had to go with one shade, it would probably be "Sassy Mauve" because I feel like you could probably wear that everyday.

Oh and as for the "drying out too quickly" bit, I found a fix for that. I keep them all in a cup in my medicine cabinet with the felt tip facing down so that the ink drains towards the tip. That generally works for me.

Ooh, I was so close to buying Sassy Mauve, but I got scared. So how long does one tube usually last for you? And thanks for the tip about making them last longer.

I'd give it a solid three months.
