Here are some cheap drugstore treats you can try for under $10. I know that even though money might be tight sometimes, you may want to do a bit of shopping after a bad day. I got all of these products for approximately $10. Prices vary by country or retail store but these are still really affordable at most places. One of the products is a great dupe for MAC's Velvet Teddy lipstick and one has become my new favorite eyebrow brush. So these really are drugstore gems.

Brand Overview: treStiQue Makeup

Long time no see! It seems like life keeps conspiring against me blogging properly lately. I recently contracted pinkeye. It was my first time and thankfully it was a mild case only on my left eye. The problem is, of course, that you can't apply makeup when you have pinkeye because you risk spreading it to the other eye or contaminating your makeup. So that threw off my posting schedule a bit. I'm all better now and I want to share with you a really exciting new makeup brand called trèStiQue. I love introducing brands on my blog that you may not have heard of otherwise. It's nice to learn about smaller brands apart from the huge household names that you read about all the time. trèStiQue launched last year (2015) and their brand mantra revolves around simplifying your makeup routine. Their packaging is incredibly well executed and their aesthetic sets them apart from the plethora of brands in the market. I was sent three products from them to try and here were my experiences with them.

I never used to suffer from bad acne breakouts until my early twenties. I've started talking more about skincare on my blog because I've had to take better care of my skin as a result. There was a period of time when my skin got really out of control (around last year). I avoided photographing myself and even stopped wearing foundation all together to see if it helped. Thankfully I got it under control, and now I just deal with the occasional hormonal/stress breakout. As I've mentioned a few times before, my go-to brand for skincare at the drugstore is Neutrogena. I think they have the most complete range out there. 

Cloud 9: Blue Eyeshadow + Pink Lips

Apparently I've been very into pairing blue and orange eyeshadow, I apologize if this feels familiar. I used different products from last time, I swear. In my defense, the last look was all matte and paired with a coral lip. (Click here to see it). This one is shimmery, brighter, and features a pale pink lipstick. I did end up using Coastal Scent's Oktoberfest again because it's the prettiest warm brown eyeshadow I own. (P.S. It only costs $2 so check it out if you haven't already)

Face of the Day: Drugstore 5 Minute Makeup

I seem to be getting slower and slower at doing makeup as time goes by. I am genuinely astounded at what people can accomplish in their 5 Minute Makeup challenge videos. I think my brows alone take me 4 minutes so I cannot fathom how I could possibly get any type of eye makeup (or full face routine) done in that amount of time. I posted a five minute makeup look before but at least I was able to put some eyeshadow on back then. This was as much as I could get done. I'm happy with it, I guess, it gets me out the door.
