A childhood interest for art and design grew into a passion for all things beauty. Currently, I’m still smitten.

Drug Store Dandies at DRUGSTORE.COM & More

Some of us are a little obsessed with going to stores like Duane Reade, Ulta, Rite Aid and Walgreens. For me, if shelves are neatly stocked, I'm in for a leisure stroll in the beauty aisles. I check out the end caps for limited editions, new product or trend items. See if my favorite product is in house or sold out. And peek at beauty bundles from lesser known brands.

You may prefer virtual shopping. DRUGSTORE.COM has some dandies for you:

FACE: REVLON introduced PHOTOREADY MAKEUP for a poreless, airbrushed skin in any light. Complete coverage with a soft luminous finish. Oil and fragrance free with SPF 20 to guard against the sun's harmful rays...12 shades at $13.99 each.

EYES: Hands down, L'OREAL makes THE best mascaras. I prefer the EXTRA VOLUME PLUMPING COLLAGEN MASCARA in Blackest Black. On my sparse lashes, two coats adds density, length and va va voom!...Black, Black Brown and waterproof formulas at $7.95 each.

Also love HIP BRIGHT DUOS SHADOW. New favorite is #328/Riotous. A sharp lime green paired with a complimentary olive shade. I use the bright shade over a green pencil to outline my eyes completely...metallics, brights, shimmers and mattes -- each duo is only $7.99.
