Drugstore finds: Maybelline New York Mineral Power Concealer and Define-A-Line Eyeliner

I’m no beauty snob, but sometimes drugstore makeup can be hit and miss. (Example: most mass brands’ mineral foundations. They just don’t provide the same coverage as higher-end lines like bareMinerals.)

That said, the drugstore is often home to undiscovered gems like two products I recently stumbled upon from Maybelline New York:

Yes, I’m quite serious! Both are creamy and perfect for covering up dark shadows at the inner corner of the eyes and redness around the nose and mouth. I tried Sand (there are five other shades) and just a little dab went a long way. Colour me impressed!

Available in six shades; I like Ebony Black best for creating a thicker-lash look. (The fine tip is fantastic for getting between individual lashes along the upper lash line.)

Priced at $8.29 (for the concealer) and $8.39 (for the eyeliner) from Well.ca. Also available at drugstores and mass market retailers across Canada.

I just scooped this concealer up from the leftovers of our recent beauty sale. Glad to know someone was a fool for not buying it!

Haha! Let me know if you like it. You have to wait a bit for it to set before blending, but otherwise I think the performance is on par with its prestige brand cousins.
