I also started using Garnier BB cream- LOVE IT! Evens out my skin tone, i use it just like a daily moisturizer- so it does 3 in 1 for me, moisturize, spf, and evens.

LOL, I went to buy make up yesterday and went to pick up my regular Covergirl tinted moisturizer. It's now called BB......so who knew, I was using it the whole time.

Use what you have, but try putting some primer under it!

Alright ladies.... here is what I bought and what I think about it!

Once upon a time I was using clinique tinted moisturizer and cover girl powder. It is old and I wanted new. So I went to Walgreens and here is what I brought home.

- Maybelline Dream liquid mousse foundation in nude beige - I LOVE THIS!! It covers really nice and feels light.
- Maybelline Dream Matte Powder - I really like this too. It covers really really well and leaves NO shine.
- Hard Candy blush crush baked blush in Honeymoon - So pretty just need a little and it adds a lot of shimmer
- Hard Candy moon glow - luminizing - great highlighting powder
- Maybelline dreamlumi touch concealer - it is ok - not going to buy again
- Maybelline Eye Studio gel eye liner - LOVE IT!
- Maybelline mega plush mascara - really like it but it is going to take me a bit to get used to the flexible brush.

I have some prime it up BE primer that I use under the foundation and that seems to help everything go on even. I really like the way my face feels when the makeup is on. It is light and doesn't feel sticky. It also make my face look flawless.

Thanks for all the suggestions on makeup!


Oh and I kept seeing something called a beauty blender in some of the makeup reviews I was watching.... I ordered some of the off brand ones and should get them this weekend. I will let you know how they work. They are supposed to help you apply liquid foundation flawlessly.

Glad you found products you like! Sounds like you have some fun new stuff to play with.

A question about the Mega Plush mascara- does it go on nicely (not too much at once, no clumps)? I am looking for a new mascara to make my lashes look thicker but a lot of the ones I've tried go on too gloppy- I feel like my lashes are weighed down with so much product!

Thanks for sharing.....so do you like the Maybelline mousse foundation as much as Covergirl? I looked at their makeup and thought about switching when I went shopping. Covergirl is just to 'red' for me....no matter what color I get it's always reddish on me. When I use Everyday Minerals I go with their 'green' colors and they match my skin tone better. Maybelline seemed to have some different shades that I thought might work but I've never used their foundations or powders.

I bought the Maybelline tattoo eye shadow that Tinkerb mentioned and I don't really care for it either . It seems oily....and it's just different when trying to get it on.....turns out to be a real sheer eyeshadow.

Does Walgreens still take makeup back? Maybe I need to make my next makeup shopping trip there so I don't keep wasting money LOL

CVS does - without a receipt a too! I have no problems trying new products because if I don't like them, I return them.

I think it covers better. It doesn't feel as thick as the CG does.

I was told yes. As long as it was within reason. Whatever that means.

Laura Gellar has the best pressed powder on the market, it's about 30 bucks but it last's for at 6 to 8 months for me. I buy it at Ulta.

I have a very oily TZone, mostly my forehead though. I either have to carry powder with me EVERYWHERE or deal with the shine. If I don't wear a lot of makeup (like at Disney) the shine isn't nearly as bad....so I'm aware that it's probably my make up making it worse. I'm definitely going to try these suggestions on my next trip to town/ulta/walgreens.

Thanks everyone for sharing and thanks OP for posting the question!

Have you tried oil blotters? I can't be without them, I get them from Mary Kay but you can get them anywhere. Works so much better on the shine than powder.

To the poster asking about mascara that doesn't clump.
I bought Maybelline one on one. Great product, and the price even better. About $6.00.
