Drugstore Products

This is a tag that's currently going around the youtube beauty community and I thought that it would be a good idea to do it too!

1. What is your favorite drugstore makeup brand?

    My favorite drugstore brand is definitely Maybelline. Revlon is starting to compete with it though. I love everything from maybelline except their blushes and bronzers! I like a little bit less products from Revlon, but I find that most of them are higher quality.
2. What are your favorite face, cheek and lip products?

    Face- Maybelline Superstay 24 Hour Foundation (US) or Boujois Healthy Mix Foundation (UK). For concealer, I loved the Maybelline Dream Smooth Mousse concealer, but it's been discontinued. I'm now currently in love with the Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer (UK).
    Cheeks-I love the NYX Cream Blush in Boho Chic. 
    Lip- Definitely the Revlon lipsticks and lip butters. 
3. Least favorite product?

    Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blushes, Maybelline Bronzers
4. What is the best makeup bargain?

    Wet-n-Wild eyeshadows, Maybelline Colossal Volum' Express Mascara, 
5. What is your favorite underdog cproduct? (Something you love that often gets overlooked?)

    NYC Blushable Cream Sticks, Covergirl Lip Perfection lipsticks, and Maybelline Define-a-Line Eyeliners.
6. A drugstore product that is overpriced?

    Anything from Physicians Formula, L'oreal Mascaras and lip products.
7. Show your best drugstore dupe(s)!!

    The Maybelline Unstoppable eyeliner in Onyx is darker than the Make Up For Ever Aqua Liner in 0L, the Buxom Insider Eyeliner in Black Jasper and the Urban Decay 24/7 Liner in Zero, so it's a dupe but better. I don't have this eyeliner, but I would assume that it's the same as the Urban Decay 24/7 Liner in Perversion.
  The E.L.F. (eyes, lips, face) lip stain in the color Birthday Suit is extremely comparable to the MAC Viva Glam Gaga Lipstick.
   This product can't be found at the drugstore, but it has drugstore pricing, the Mary Kay Mineral Cheek color in Shy Blush is literally the exact same as NARS Orgasm Blush.
   And finally, the Maybelline Colossal Mascara is the same as the Make Up For Ever Smoky Lash, but it doesn't dry out as quickly as the MUFE Smoky Lash!   
8. Drugstore product that isn't worth the hype?

L'oreal mascaras, Hard Candy Fox in a Box.
