Hello hello all of my people. I’m so excited to be back. I’m finally all moved in (don’t worry, apartment tour coming soon) and have gotten all settled in. So let’s just be real. Moving is expensive. Like stupid expensive. Between movers, buying new things, deposits, and all that good stuff. And of course, with my timing, I ran out of all my make up a week after I had moved. I mean I had to buy just about everything and if you’re like me you only use stupid expensive things. So instead of going and dropping $100+ on make up I walked myself down to Ulta and picked up some drug store make up and boy did I find some goodies. I was seriously SHOOK when I went home and tried everything out. I thought I’d share with you all what I used in the past (and still love) and what I’ve been replacing it with lately.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Definer vs Makeup Revolution Duo Bro Definer
This is a no brainer. The drugstore version is literally $5 and is just as good. Anastasia is officially cancelled.
-Beauty Blender vs Jeffree Star beauty sponge trio
Now this is a tricky one. I looovvveee my beauty blender but this Jeffree Star collab is pretty good. Only complaint is that the sponge itself isn’t as soft as the BB. The mini sponges are amazing thought. But you also can’t beat the $16 price point.
-Urban Decay Setting Spray vs Morphe setting mist
RUN and grab this setting mist. It smells amazing, sets my make-up and is so refreshing. No doubt I’m done with any other setting mist.
-Kat von D tattoo liner vs Maybelline eye liner
Loving this liner. Not gonna lie my lids are really oily so it bleeds a bit on me but so did the tattoo liner so I’ll go ahead and save my extra money.

So those are my current replacements. Don’t get me wrong, I still LOVE my high-end products but at the same time why would I spend 6x the price for essentially the same thing? I think yo girl is team drugstore right now because I’ve already found so many great replacements. Let me know your favorite drugstore products below.
