Once I reached my mid-twenties, I thought I had ‘outgrown’ drugstore beauty products. Like spending $50 on a concealer at a department store would obviously be the better choice. But in reality, the markup on cosmetics is close to 80-90%. And I’ve noticed, luxury brands are often loaded with fragrance – which can be incredibly irritating for your skin. So a few months ago I participated in the Bartell Drugs Spring Beauty Event and was blown away by the beauty products they offered. Especially, Pacifica, which is one of my favorite natural brands “formulated without: Animal testing, animal ingredients, phthalates, parabens, sulfates, propylene glycol, mineral oil, petroleum, peanut oil, triclosan, etc.”
So when the Bartell Drugs Fall Beauty Event popped up I was eager to see what’s new for the season and…of course to get my makeup done…because who doesn’t love that?
Bartell Drugs offered beauty demos last week at various locations and I popped in at the Queen Anne store.
The makeup artist used fall-inspired NYX eyeshadow palettes.
And BeYu Velvet Mat Foundation (which is oil free!).
And voilà! A natural, everyday look which goes well with my #MomStyle :)
I came home with plenty of new goodies to try and my favorites include:
Pacifica Mystical Supernatural Eye Shadow Palette
Pacifica Blushious Coconut & Rose Infused Cheek Color
NYX Ombre Lip Duo
Loreal Infallible Never Fail Powder Eyeliner Pen
BeYu Catwalk Volume Gloss
You can find all of these at Bartell Drugs!
Thanks for dolling me up Bartell Drugs! I can’t wait for next season….
