a fun makeup look using only Drugstore products (for under $20)
This time around, because I already knew I loved the product I opted for some brighter colors to have fun with. I grabbed Edgy Emerald and Painted Purple.
The consistency of these two is much like Tough as Taupe. They are creamy, smooth and glide on easily.
The packaging for this product is fantastic – nice clear glass pots that allow you to see the colour easily in your
mess collection while you are quickly trying to get ready.
As you can see from this swatch, the colours are rich and heavily pigmented. They are easy to use and blend well together. I was worried blending would be difficult (I don’t have much experience with cream shadows) but I was pleasantly surprised. 🙂
***I know lots of people who are used to purchasing higher end makeup are skeptical of this product immediately because of the price tag…and if that sounds like you, then you absolutely MUST check out my pictures and 24 hour test results here showcasing this products wear time and its quality.***
The drugstore I picked these up at had a sale on various cosmetics so I grabbed a mascara by L’Oreal that came with a bonus eyeliner. You know me and free things….
The package for both was on sale for $6.99, down from it’s regular price of $9.99.
On the side of the packaging there is a little diagram showing how this mascara creates the effect of false lashes. It also says “visuals are dramatized”. 🙂 At least they are honest about it.
The Voluminous False Lashes mascara itself comes in a highly reflective, twisted triangle shaped, gold container.
The wand isn’t too bulky so it should work on the majority of eye shapes as well as those hard to reach lower lashes and inner corner lashes without making a mess.
The bonus Voluminous eye liner comes in a sleek easy to handle tube, with a chisel felt tip.
Given the shape of the tip, you can actually use this eyeliner to create 3 different thicknesses quite easily. Take a look at my swatch below:
As you can see, you have a lot of versatility with an eye liner that has a chisel tip like this one.
I thought it would be fun to create a quick eye makeup look using all four of these new products to see exactly what is possible for under $20. Here is what I ended up with:
I really love “Painted Purple” and “Edgy Emerald” together, I find they really compliment each other for a fun summery look.
What shades are your favourite from the Color Tattoo 24 hour collection? Do you have cream shadows you prefer to this product? AND tell me, what is your favourite drugstore mascara???
