Meg O. Beauty Awards: Best Drugstore Makeup of 2013!

Ah, it’s my last post of 2013. Can y’all even believe we are beginning a new year? I thought about writing some fun recaps or reflections or whatever, but it got trumped by my desire to do a video on the best drugstore makeup of 2013. I was even going to do a hair/skincare favorites, but decided against it. Makeup = win. Obviously.

Fun fact: when I tried to type ‘2013’ in the title of this post, I actually typed ‘3024’. Maybe it’s because I’m so ahead of the times and progressive in my drugstore beauty choices. Actually, you’ve probably heard of most items in this post and video. Progressiveness = not win.

However, these products are awesome. And deserve love. And to be sitting in your makeup drawers. Promise.

    Okay, I miss YOU! you’re so fun to watch on the vlogs!

    Love this video.. going to the drugstore to buy all the products now. K, thanks!!

    I’ve heard awesome things about Jordana eyeliner, and I currently use Rimmel. Will have to jump on the Nyx wagon – I don’t own anything from them!
