Friday Favorites: Drugstore finds

Email This Post December 8th, 2006 nicky

drugstore.jpgIs there anything better than a bargain? Especially a bargain that out performs its cost and keeps you coming back for more. With the amount of money I shell out on beauty products and what a brand snob I can be sometimes, finding a drugstore purchase that I love is like finding a picture of Britney Spears wearing panties (doesn’t happen very much lately.) Off the subject, sorry for the joke about Brit Brit but remember how I just posted a month ago on how excited I was about her comeback? Gee, that sure changed fast! Anyway, here’s a few beauty items on the cheap that I use confidently and regularly. My go-to eye makeup remover is Almay’s Oil Free Pads. Just a sweep over my lids and lashes and a wipe with a tissue gets rid of all my hard work in an instant. I also love Revlon’s Colorstay eyeliner, it glides on smoothly and stays put the whole day. I often have people ask me what liquid liner I use, but it’s an easy to use pencil!  During the dry winter months, I swear by Neutrogena’s Hand Cream. It really fixes chapped hands in an instant and is not greasy at all. Another drugstore product I enjoy is John Frieda Sheer Blonde Crystal Clear hairspray.  When your hair is lighter and you need to hold a style, many harisprays darken the color, which I hate! It is also flexible hold so it’s not sticky and it has a glisten to it so it does double duty by making your hair shiny too!  So there’s my faves that I pick up during my weekly Target visits, I love that store! One last thing, speaking of stores, I am on cloud nine because there are rumors flying around that they are going to put a Barney’s New York at my favorite mall in the Phoenix metro area. Whoo hoo! Have a great weekend everyone!

    This absolutely gorgeous girl with the most beautiful hair I had ever seen came in to get her makeup done last week and I had to ask her what products she uses on her hair. I was completely surprised to discover that she swears by all the John Frieda “Brilliant Brunette” products! I’m going to have to give his line a try. 🙂
