A fashion, beauty and lifestyle blog


Guest post by Courtney: Drugstore favorites

Hey everyone,

Today I have an exciting new post, a guest post by Courtney Shepler. I hope you enjoy it but first A short introduction: With a touch of simplicity is a beauty and lifestyle blog hoping to inspire readers! It began with a 20 year old Navy Wife who started the blog to share all her life's tips, tricks, and the journey's she will encounter. The blog hopes to make a relationship with it's readers and provide a positive energy throughout! 

Makeup is so expensive now that it makes you want the best deal for your dollar. Drugstores are definitely the way to go! These are my go-to drugstore items that are higher quality than some of the high quality makeup out there!

In my last post about makeup (which you can find here: My favorite beauty products I talked about the Urban Decay setting spray. Well, I hate to say it but more than often I will go with the L'orealmakeup extending spray just because it really does work just as good, if not better (shhh, don't tell). My other favorite L'oreal product is the voluminous mascara! This is in black, but normally I like the darker black color which I believe is called carbon black. Total falsies look!

I also love NYX cosmetics just because the products that they produce are such good quality, and because of that they are very well known in the makeup industry. I love the NYX cosmetics liquid illuminator, it is literally perfect for all skintones! The illuminator gives your skin the perfect glow. You can use it as a highlighter, or put it on before your foundation to give that under-glow (if you have oily skin, do not do this). The other favorite NYX beauty product I have is the concealer. This concealer does not crease, and it is full coverage. The only difference in this and the Maybelline concealer is that it is creamier,  and the application of the product is much easier.

Maybe it's Maybelline (sorry that jingle is stuck in your head now)! Maybelline has been around for years and still constantly continues to amaze me. They have managed to gear all their makeup products to a variety of people rather than just teens and young adults. Maybelline has the best nude lipstick that lasts all day long. This color lipstick is called Blushing Beige (number 915). My other favorite Maybelline product that I just briefly mentioned is the concealer. This concealer is an extreme full coverage concealer, and it does not leave a tint under your eyes for pictures. But, this is just a squeeze tube and the concealer itself is rather thick so it does crease. I tend to use this and the NYX combined so this can be placed lower than my eye creases.

Lastly, is Revlon. Revlon has the best contour pallete! It is in the color Bronze Glow (number 030). This is more of a compact pallete that I like to use for bronzer and highlighter combined and I can fit it easily into my purse. It's less of a pallete and looks more like an eyeshadow kit, even though it is actually meant for highlighting.
