Current Drugstore Favorites (and an embarrassing chilhdhood confession)

For as long as I can remember, I've always been a bit of a product junkie.  When I was little, I remember combing the cosmetic sections of drugstores with my mom.  Oh how I LOVED my soda flavored Lip Smackers and cotton candy flavored sticky body sprays...
When I would go spend weekends with my grandparents, I would always talk my Grandma into getting me a new shampoo or conditioner to try when I would go with her to the grocery store.  What's funny is that I remember "pretend" reviewing these products in the bathroom mirror. YEARS and years before YouTube existed.  I pretended I had my own tv show.  I was informing the invisible masses. Maybe I was a crazy kid. Maybe I liked talking to myself...  Now, I like to think I was just practicing for my future on YT.
Anyway, not much has changed.  Of course, now I splurge on more expensive brands of beauty products.  However, I make it a point to stay away from the sticky cotton candy body sprays. And I try to refrain from talking to myself in the mirror as much.
Regardless, I'm still a drugstore product junkie. Some of my most used and most loved products are from there.
Some? Make that a LOT. After making this Current Drugstore Favorites video, I realize that I actually have a ridiculous amount of favorites at the drugstore. Check out a full list of my favorites below and don't forget to check out the video for little mini-reviews on each and for more information.

  25. GIRL... I went and bought the brow fantasy at Ulta this week with their bogo 50% off Revlon deal, and promptly forgot it was in my purse. I didn't do my brows this morning because I was running late, and when I got to work I popped it out in the bathroom and tried it out. I have to tell you... amazing! My brows have never looked this good nor have I found a gel that holds for this long. Thanks so much for the rec! Love your videos. :)
