Drugstore makeup is one of the most wonderful things.  You can shop some of the best brands and products for an extremely low price!  High-end contour palettes can range anywhere from $50 to $100 and, if you’re thinking what I’m thinking, that’s pretty expensive, especially when you can buy a similar palette for $5-$20!  Here are 3 of my favorite drugstore palettes!

  • Covergirl’s TruBlend Contour Palette ($12).  Chelsea Crockett - Covergirl Contour PaletteAlthough this palette is super simple, it works so well!  This palette comes in three different shades, light, medium, and dark, so you can find the perfect one for your skin tone.  The color of each powder is extremely natural so they blend together for a smooth, professional look.
  • Rimmel Kate Sculpting Cosmetic Set ($6).  If you want a sharper contour as well as highlighter and blush, then this palette is for you!  It’s easy to take with you on-the-go and has the whole package for a flawless makeup look.  Did I mention it’s only six dollars? 
  • E.L.F. Contour Palette ($6).  This palette gives you four shades instead of three!  Each color is a cream and powder formula so it applies beautifully onto the skin and blends just as well.  Once again, it’s only six bucks! 

Have you tried any of these products yourself?  Let me know what you think below!

Drugstore makeup doesn’t get enough credit for its quality.  Some of my all-time favorite makeup products come from stores like Walgreens, Target, etc.!  In 2016, there were some drugstore products that sold like crazy.  Here are the top 10 from last year!

  • Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Nail Polish ($5).  This stuff is a lifesaver!  Instead of waiting half an hour for your nail polish to dry, this polish dries 10x faster!
  • E.l.f. Poreless Face Primer ($6).  Chelsea Crockett - Wet N Wild LipstickE.l.f. is one of the most affordable brands out there.  Their Poreless Face Primer should be your go-to primer if you’re looking for the best bang for your buck!
  • NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream ($6).  If you’ve never tried out NYX’s matte products, I highly urge you to do so!  They’re my favorite brand to go to when I want the longest lasting and highest quality matte lips.
  • Wet n Wild Silk Finish Lipstick ($1).  For only ONE dollar, this lipstick comes in lots of different shades with good quality, too!  The picture above shows only six of the several colors to choose from.  What’s a better steal than that?
  • Oil Absorbing Sheets ($5).  These sheets are great for all skin types whether you have oily skin or not.  You can use them to blot away excess oil or shine before or after you apply your makeup.   

If you like any of these products, let me know which is your favorite.  And if you haven’t tried them, give them a try in in 2017!

Let’s face it. We have all secretly wanted to try maple syrup on our spaghetti, and it is all because of Buddy the Elf. “Elf” may be one of my all-time favorite Christmas movies. And, although he may not give the best food advice, Buddy the Elf is actually pretty smart when it comes to love. Here are a few things the big guy in green tights has taught us about how to love someone.

  1. Go for it!: Don’t be scared to give love a try.
  2. Take risks: Now, that doesn’t mean eating gum off of a NYC subway railing. 😉tumblr_mc9renKUTF1rhucoqo1_500
  3. Plan fun outings with your crush: How much fun is it to jam-pack every Christmas related activity you can think of into your weekend? Do it Buddy the Elf style and plan to make snow angels for 2 hours, go ice skating, then eat a whole roll of Tollhouse cookie dough as fast as they could, and then snuggle.
  4. Stay positive: Buddy shows us that a smile can solve any problem. In fact, smiling is his favorite. And when you smile, it makes people around you feel the love.
  5. Give them your attention: Show someone you love them by giving them your undivided attention, and by asking them about themselves. It will make them feel like you are interested in them and who they are! Even questions like “what’s your favorite color” are Buddy approved. 😉

See? Buddy the Elf is full of good love advice! Now if you will excuse me, I am going to go curl up with a bowl of spaghetti and maple syrup and watch me some Elf.

XOXO, Chels
