Friday Favorites: Drugstore Foundations

Hi ya! I hope everyone had a good week. Today I’m sharing two drugstore foundations. It’s easy to spend $30-$50 on a foundation, but it’s painful if it doesn’t work well and you’ve now wasted money. Both drugstore foundations mentioned today were recommended to me by my sister-in-law (thanks girl!).

e.l.f. Flawless Finish Foundation

First off, it’s $6! They have six shades, which doesn’t offer a lot of options, but if you find one that’s your color and you like the formula then you have probably saved yourself some money. I like that the bottle comes with a pump. The foundation is a semi-matte and lasts pretty well. I tend to touch my face throughout the day or rest my chin on my hand while I work so it wears off quickly in spots.

Rimmel Lasting Finish 25-Hour Foundation

Whoa! When they say lasts 25 hours, they aren’t kidding. At the end of the day this foundation is still going strong. 7 shades available. SPF 20, which for this fair skin girl is pretty important! I put it to the test with a day on the lake; my face did not burn and the foundation did not wear off. Rimmel recently changed the packaging (I thought they discontinued it since I could find the old tube) and I haven’t purchased it in the new packaging, but I read reviews saying it tends to be messy. Disappointing, but the product is great.

What are your favorite foundations (drugstore or not) and why?

Until next post…xoxo Becca

Feeling Blessed


Hi again! Even though I’m away I wanted to make sure there were still Monday and Friday posts up. When bloggers I follow regularly are on vacation I miss their content. Reading blogs is relaxing for me, kind of like reading a never ending book đŸ™‚

I’m currently writing this post from the airport while the hubs and I wait for our flight to Sydney. Feeling especially blessed lately. We reflected on our year of travel this morning. One year ago we were in Newport Beach, California with my in-laws. I don’t take travel for granted, not everyone gets the opportunity to travel. It wasn’t until after I graduated from college I even had a passport!

I wish someone had told us that buying a house and lots of stuff doesn’t make you happy. We were following the “American Dream.” Of course you hear “money doesn’t buy happiness,” but it never sinks in until you’ve had all the stuff and still feel like you are missing out on something.

My hope is that one day we can offer the experience of travel to our children and I hope they realize how blessed they are too. 

Until next post…xoxo Becca
