Ah, the summer. I just love the summer, especially when it comes to beauty. To me, summer beauty is bright colors, simplified routines, sweatproof and easy to use products. You may have seen my post and video on my Summer Beauty Essentials, so when the opportunity came up to feature Walgreens, I felt like this was the perfect companion to that post. Today I’m going to share with you my drugstore summer beauty essentials! Who doesn’t love wallet-friendly, high quality beauty products? I know I am a sucker. I’ve found some really awesome things that not only minimize time on my routine, are long-wearing, and are on-trend with colors. Get excited!
If you’ve been following my blog for any amount of time, you know that Walgreens is my go-to for drugstore beauty. I always find the best selection and deals. I am a sucker for that monthly coupon book and those bright yellow promotion stickers on the beauty aisle!
Sometimes I feel like it’s a very dangerous thing that the beauty aisle is right there near the front of the door. Or a very convenient thing, depending on how you look at it. I can spend a really long time perusing and milling over which products to get. It can sometimes be extremely hard to limit myself! It’s just tough when you’ve got an amazing selection to choose from, and so many different promotions going on. For today’s purposes, I did limit myself, but I know I will be back in July for more…. (how predictable of me)
Now, let’s get down to the nitty gritty of it – the products that I picked up and why I would call them essentials! Oh, and hey… do you notice anything different about the quality of my videos? Mama got a new camera! I am still learning and playing around with it, but I couldn’t wait to use it! Don’t forget to subscribe to me on YouTube if you are interested in seeing more of my face on my new camera! I highly suggest you watch the video if you want to see how I saved $11.65 on my purchase! There’s a specific way I shop for my makeup at Walgreens and I end up saving so much every time! (But that’s in the video, so watch it.)
- Maybelline EyeStudio Color Tattoo Eyeshadow ‘Bad to the Bronze’
- Jordana 12 Hour Made to Last Liquid Eyeliner Pencil ‘Black Point’
- Maybelline Volum’ Express Pumped Up! Colossal Mascara (Waterproof) ‘Black’
- Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain ‘Cannes Crush’
- Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss ‘Pango Peach’
- Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Nail Color ‘Violet Voltage’
And here are some close-ups of some swatches I photographed. Can’t get enough of all of these products!
Oh, and before I go, Walgreens is having a Gift With Purchase offer which runs between June 29 through August 30 and allows you to get a coupon by texting a code or visiting http://www.walgreens.com/topic/promotion/beautydeals.jsp for a FREE travel-size make-up brush set. It’s your gift with any $20 beauty and personal care purchase (excluding baby category). Not to mention, there are a lot of deals going on to begin with! Win, win!
