I Heart Makeup TAG

Hey guys! So I watched one of these tags on youtube yesterday. The one by eleventhgorgeous is the one I watched :) heres the link for that: the tag was origannaly created by Makeupby Fran and Makeupbyalli so go check theres out too! Anyways since I can't make vids I decided to do it in blog version :)

1. What is your favorite drugstore makeup brand?
I love love love Maybelline for face products (FitMe), Revlon for Lippies and L'Oreal for their mascaras. So it's not like just one, ya know.
2. What are your favorite face, cheek and lip products?
Face: Maybelline FitMe powder foundation, ELF blushes, and Revlon Lip Butters
3. Least favorite product?
I strongly disliked the CoverGirl True Blend Micro Minerals Foundation. It was one of the first powder foundations I got and so I didn't really realize how bad it was. But now if I try to go back to use it, I just hate it. When its on, it looks sparkly (wtf) and really cakey. Which along with the cakiness, if has no sort of coverage, so you have to put quite a bit on to get any coverage and then you have a cakey powdery face :( Also, the packaging is impossible! And the brush doesnt really pick anything up. Like it'll pick it up and then drop the product almost immediately all over me and my clothes -__-
4. What is the best makeup bargain?
ELF and Wet n Wild products definitely. You get great products with great quality and pigmentation for all under like 5-10$
5. What is your favorite underdog product? (Something you love that often gets overlooked?)
Hmmm I don't think I have one... I really like Maybelline Line Stiletto ... but I don''t think that's really like and underdog....
6. A drugstore product that is overpriced?
BB Creams totally. I was so excited when they came out and I really wanted to try one. But because of the price, I'm so not willing to take the risk of hating it.
7. Show your best drugstore dupe(s)!!
Don't have any sorrryyy :(
8. Drugstore product that isn’t worth the hype?
Some mascaras. I feel like in mascara commercials they always make the models have such long, full, fluttery lashes(false lashes duh), but everyone knows that in real life, if you buy that mascara you're so not going to get those results. 

So thats it for today guys :) hope you liked it! xoxo Kayla

My Beauty Christmas List 2012

Hey beauts! So my mom told me the other day to go ahead and make a Christmas list for this year so she could start picking things up in advance. And me being my crazy makeup-obsessed self, almost all of my Christmas list is beauty products.... so I decided to share my list with you so that maybe you can get some ideas on things that you want for Christmas or Hanuka or whatever holiday you celebrate around this time of the year(yes, that includes birthdays). This is also kind of my birthday list since my birthday is in January and usually whatever I don't get for Christmas I get for my bday :)

P.S. All of these products are things that I've either done tons of research on to make sure they're great or I've just wanted forever, so like I can almost fully guarantee that these products are all great based on my own research.
