Holy Grail Drugstore Makeup Products

SHOP THE POST:


My beauty routine is constantly in flux. Some people stick to tried and true favorites, while others are always experimenting and on the hunt for the next big thing. I, personally, love trying new cosmetics and spend more time in Ulta than I would ever honestly tell my husband. While I love a good high-end product, I have recently been reaching for almost entirely drugstore beauty products. Yes – you heard that right! I am picking drugstore products over high-end, cutting my beauty spending in half, and loving my makeup looks even more. This transition has me so excited, that I HAD to share these game changing products with y’all.

P.S. Ulta is having a sale on NYX Cosmetics so many of these products are even less expensive!

Happy Pi Day, y’all! We are only days away from the FIRST DAY OF SPRING. It certainly doesn’t feel like it here in South Carolina but regardless, I am counting down the days and even readying my wardrobe. The main investment I tend to make during the change of seasons is in my footwear. In years past, I have spent a chunk of change on trendy shoes only for them to go out of style. BUT, I have learned my lesson. The trick is – snagging your favorites early, before the temperatures and prices increase. So I rounded up the biggest steals I could find on the most popular footwear trends – designer pairs included. Psst… most of these are under $50! Just click on the product to shop.

Hey guys! This week is the start of me finally getting organized over here on Cort In Session. And I’m sharing the behind-the-scenes details with y’all so you can hold me accountable. From now on, there will be a clear-cut posting schedule so you know what to expect here. I want this blog to be a resource for y’all, not just an extension of what I post on social media.
