Drugstore Impulse Buy


A color usually associated with cheeks and lips has migrated up to the eyes.  Because you can opt for warm or cool shades, subtle or bold, this is a universally flattering look even for Spring season.

If you’re up to use various shades of blue to create a more eccentric look. I’ve noticed recently that many drugstores have wearable blue colors makeup products to test the waters before committing to the look pun intended.


Remember I talked about the L’Oreal Color Infallible Single Eyeshadow in many previous post. I’ve linked an archive here so just hit it to hop over the full review.

I really love this infallible eyeshadow, it keeps me buying every shades in the collection. I’m starting to see myself to be Color Infallible eyeshadow collector, bhahaha!

The shades I picked up were All Night Blue and Bronze Divine. Very pigmented and true to its color. Amazing texture with effortless blending. Long lasting staying power and I didn’t see any fall out at all. I just love these awesome colors. So pretty!!!


You guys might have probably seen this blush stick before at the drugstores, Walmart, Target etc…  I like blushes but even more when it comes in a stick format. It’s convenient and wouldn’t break into thousand of pieces in case I accidentally drop it. I don’t know what gets into me to pick this dark mauve shade though. I got it in the shade Make a Mauve. Talking about impulse buy! You’re staring at one right here (giggling!). I’m making my move, what about you?


I got Color Sensational Lipsticks by Maybelline in two different colors. So, I’m going to give away one Pink Satin in my next giveaway contest.

I like the shades I got in Let Me Pink and Pink Satin. This formula is creamy and pigmented. It glides like butter, and my lips feels moisturized and comfortable. No tugging during application and it wears well. The color comes out opaque with a single pass.

I want to put this out that they do have a very subtle taste and fragrance which most Color Sensational Lipsticks have, it kinda reminds me of play-doh?!  Unfortunately, I’m not a fan of scented lip products so it’s a no go for me.

Which is your favorite makeup brands from the drugstore? Feel free to share your comments below.

Alrighty, so that’s pretty much it for today’s post! Hope to see you again on the next one. Thank you for stopping by.

Sharon xoxo

    I would have loved to have seen some swatches of the mauve blush on as it sounds like a refreshing change from the peachy/ tangerine shades I normally favor.

  16. My willpower is pretty great, not going to lie – but every so often, the impulse buy sneaks in. That being said, when it comes to beauty products, I totally resist because I don’t think anything is better than NATURAL beauty.


  17. This is something my wife would love for sure! She loves Maybeline products!

    • I’ve to admit I felt the same way before but after trying out a gazillion makeup products I’m a converted beauty addict lol. Lipsticks or blushes are some great choice for starters. xo


  20. I am terrible for impulse buying when it comes to beauty and skin care products! I just love them so much haha I haven’t tried a blush stick before, I always imagined them to be too in your face but I might have to give one a go for in the my handbag when i’m out and about

    The title of this blog post really called to me….because that is all that my drugstore purchases ever seem to be – impulse. I really like the Maybelline lipsticks as well. And I am going to have to give in and try out those Infallible eye shadows (for some reason I am not fond of buying single shadows…who knows why!)


  23. Love that lipstick color! I’m THE #1 impulse buyer…lol. Great post
