This video right here comes HIGHLY requested! Took a mini survey and asked what drugstore products you want to see me review the most and I got an overwhelming response for drugstore bronzers and blushes. I had no idea you guys were into bronzers that much, had I known I would have gone waaaay harder with some of these products I am about to show you!
I know for a fact I’ve mentioned this one before, but the Covergirl Queen Collection bronzers are effing insanely beautiful. Sam Fine recommended them (Google if you don’t know who he is) and I do pretty much whatever he says like a mindless drone LOL he is just that freaking amazing. I cannot believe you guys didn’t know about these before but yet, next time you’re at Walmart or Target stroll on over to the Covergirl section and get one of their bronzers.
They offer three shades, I use the darkest one, Q120. I own all three and I use them in my makeup kit. I wanted to show you guys how amazing these look on ethnic skin, so here’s a photo of one of my clients wearing one of the bronzers from the Queen Collection.
^Okay so granted the young lady pictures above is already naturally gorgeous, but how amazing do these bronzers look on her skin?! She wanted the JLo look and JLo she got! I highly recommend these things!
The second thing I’d like to address are drugstore blushes. For this one there is good news and there is bad news. The bad news is I am honestly still on the search for great drugstore blushes. Boo you suck Jackie, I know. But the incredibly great news, at least to me, is I’ve got a much better alternative. And ladies and gentlemen I bring to you, La Femme Blushes.
La Femme Blushes were introduced to me last year when I watched a YouTube video by Gossmakeupartist. He spoke about their brand and his review was so awesome I just had to have them, so I bought 6 or 7 of them and fell in LOVE. They are about the size of a Makeup Forever eyeshadow and for the the price, get this, a whopping 3 DOLLARS EACH!! That’s insane!! Don’t you know that blushes at the drugstore aren’t EVEN that cheap!!!!! Drugstore makeup is really not that inexpensive as you think it is!! But aside form that, the quality of this stuff is unreal! I cannot explain to you how pigmented they are. Please see the video for swatches.

My favorite color of all time from the La Femme blushes is Coral. It’s THE prettiest orange/peach for the summer on dark skin.
La Femme blushes can be purchased at Camerareadycosmetics.com or Makeupmania.com again, for only 3 dollars each. And the pigmentation of these blushes blows drugstore stuff out of the water, by far. You will not find a deal this sweet anywhere, definitely not at your local super market guys. The only drawback is not being able to see, touch, and feel them in person before you buy, but I can almost guarantee you these things do not disappoint!!
If you have any, and I mean any recommendations for other drugstore bronzers and blushes you think I should check out, leave them here! I’d really love to hear what you guys suggest!
