Hey there just curious and wanted to hear what everyone's favorite drugstore brands were..while everyone loves there name brands I find that sometimes so called "drugstore" brands are just as good if not better..

Some of my favorites include:
Wet N wild liquid eyeliner
Wet N wild lipsticks (certain ones)
NYX

I've only tried Nyx's jumbo eye pencils and I adore them. I'm still looking for decent eye shadow and I intend to try theirs, Too Faced works best for me though.

Maybelline's mascara; Stiletto and their color liquids.

Revlon lipsticks are OK color wise, but I prefer the Etsy seller Beauty Addiction.
She also has several shadows that are highly pigmented and great for shoots but they crease rapidly, even with primer. My lids are highly prone to creasing though.

The CoverGirl Clean foundation because they make a really pale one! I usually put Ben Nye powder over the top to get rid of the shine though smile
