A few weeks ago I saw Youtube videos by Emily Noel (emilynoel83) and Jessica Braun (JAMbeauty89) on the 10 things they’d buy first if all their makeup disappeared and I love the idea of curating a list like this because it truly shows which products I SERIOUSLY cannot live without.
So I decided to list out my picks, but only from the drugstore because to be completely honest, if I did lose all my makeup I would be too depressed to repurchase anything from Sephora or department stores at first. Realistically, the first place I’d hit up would be Ulta, Target, Walgreens or Walmart (or Priceline in Australia) LOL.
There’s a lot of overlap between this post and my Priceline Makeup Favorites & Recommendations and Top 5 Best Affordable Drugstore Makeup posts, so make sure you also have a read of those posts!

Do you have sparse brows and just wish you could have Lucy Hale/Cara Delevigne brows that you don’t have to fill in on a daily basis? Well, I share your struggle!
My brows have always been so sparse, not necessarily thin-shaped though, just sparse with a lot of bald spots. Until I had microblading done on my brows three years ago, and they haven’t completely faded yet which is crazy! I’m planning on getting another one soon but it’s just too expensive for me at the moment, so this is why I am completely in love with this product.
The Maybelline Tattoo Brow Gel Tint is a “peel-off gel-tint that leaves brows perfectly defined and evenly filled for up to 3 days.” It’s so easy to use, I’ll show you pics in my review below.

Almay recently released 15 shades of monochromatic eyeshadow quads, and each of these quads include four finishes: matte, satin, metallic, glitter. So basically… one shade, four ways!
I got these last month and was so excited to try these as I really like Almay’s face products as they’re suitable for my then-sensitive skin.

The Physicians Formula Butter Highlighter is probably my favorite makeup release this year, and that’s a huge statement coming from someone like me. I love the Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer so much (read: Top 5 Best Affordable Drugstore Makeup), and the new Physicians Formula Butter Blush shades are incredible (read: Physicians Formula Butter Blush Review; this is a review of the old shades). So of course I was so excited for this range of highlighters!

The Gigi Hadid x Maybelline collection has got to be one of the most anticipated launches this year, and I was so excited I to try them out! The nude, blush pink packaging is beautiful and I’m drawn to anything pink, so this collection was calling out my name. But is everything as good as it seems?
Although these are from Maybelline, they’re all more expensive than regular Maybelline products, obviously because it has Gigi’s name attached to it. So, not everything from the collection is worth the price.
Read on to see swatches and for my reviews of the products!
