Power Matte, for the Win

The recently released NARS “Power Matte Lip Pigment” might be new to my beauty collection, but it has quickly become my favorite. It stays put, feels so comfortable on the lip, the formula is very lightweight and I can always count on @narsissist for perfect color selection and bomb pigment. Yesterday I was wearing and testing out ANOTHER color for you babes, but the verdict is in: MUST HAVE!!

The colors that I am loving are listed below – perfect for fall and so stunning on the lip!!

NARS Powermatte Lip Pigment in “American Woman” (rosey nude), “Save The Queen” (deep mauve), “Slow Ride” (bricky deep orange), “Star Woman” (perfect true deep red)

For #NationalCreamFilledDoughnutDay I am streeeeeeetching the term and showing you the cream-of-the-crop from my drugstore makeup collection! I mean, I just feel like less money spent on makeup means MORE money for cream filled doughnuts. Seems like an obvious post, right??

I think it just makes sense to post about each product in order that you would apply – everything is linked below, but hit me up if you have any questions!

FOUNDATION : Because I have dry skin my preference of foundation from the drugstore is the Loreal Infalliable Pro Glow, but if you have oily skin or prefer and matter finish then the Loreal Infallible Pro Matte will be your best friend. This is my HOLY GRAIL from the drugstore! COLOR TIP – I rotate between #203 and #204

FOUNDATION BRUSH : I have used the e.l.f. Ultimate Blending Brush for years and it has really become my one and only in the foundation routine.

BEAUTY SPONGE : The ONLY thing that even slightly compares to the OG Beauty Blender in my humble opinion 😘 is the Loreal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Foundation Blender.

UNDER EYE CONCEALER : This is the most full coverage and dewy concealer at the drugstore and I.AM.OBSESSED. with it.

CONCEALER BRUSH : I prefer using a brush to blend in my concealer because I keep the coverage and it takes a liiiiiiittle bit of the glow glow out of the concealer and looks so dang natural on the skin.

BRONZER/CONTOUR : Not only does this bronzer flatter ALL skin tones, but it smells like a freakin summer vacation. I cannot get enough.

CONTOUR STICK : I am just testing this out, but it looks so stunning and warm on the skin and blends out soooooo beautifully!

PINK BLUSH : This cool-toned pink blush is what blush dreams are made of. It is the perfect subtle yet bright pink and blends liiiiiiike butta!

CORAL BLUSH : If you have followed me long, you KNOW this is my favorite of all favorite blushes! Oh and it is just $2.99!!!!

PEACH BLUSH : This blush looks sooo natural on the skin and has a bit of shimmer to keep the skin look luminous and fresh.

BLUSH BRUSH : The biggest mistake that women make in their makeup routine is in their blush. By using a smaller brush you can make sure that your application is flawless 👌🏽

HIGHLIGHTER BLING : I went over this highlighter in my dupe series, but I can’t put it down and for $4.99, I might just end up buying 4 so that I never run out!

SUBTLE HIGHLIGHTER : I rediscovered this highlight and it just makes me so so so happy and gives my face a “lit from within” look 😍

EYE POLISH : I swear by these eye shadows, because they work like a primer, so they and give the eye a metallic POP without looking cray cray. They are so simple to use, just pop them on in patting motions with your finger.

LIP SCRUB : This is the ONLY scrub from the drugstore that does the job and tastes/smells high end!

NUDE LIPGLOSS : This glossy gloss is my favorite. No joke I have a tube in my car, a tube in my purse, a tube in my bathroom and a tube for the baby 😘 jk jk. But only kidding about the baby, hahah!

COLORED LIPGLOSS : The NYX Butter Glosses are flawless for a natural makeup day, you don’t need a mirror to apply them and there are so many color options that you can find your perfect shade EASY!

MATTE LIQUID LIPSTICK : I HATED this formula initially, but it has grown on me. Maaaaainly because it just wears so flipping long! As soon as this dries down (which sometimes takes a couple hours 🙄) this shiz STAYS.

Here is the look that I created with these drugstrore fab faves!
