I hardly review drugstore cosmetics on this blog. But I have recently discovered some gems that come in pocket-friendly prices and good quality.

I am not sure how many of you remember Let’s Care and Celebrate!, a charity campaign started by me in 2010 to commemorate the first anniversary of MsGlitzy.com. The aim of the campaign is to help other women to rebuild their lives and regain their confidence.
After a hiatus of one year in 2011, the campaign has made a quiet comeback this year. I wanted to spend more time interacting directly with the girls or women in need. By chance and referral, I got to know Beautiful People, a volunteer group that supports teenage girls on probation as they reintegrate into society. With their help, we had our first makeup workshop for the year at Pertapis Centre for Women and Girls on Saturday morning.
The trainer for this workshop was Joy Tan from The Style Atelier. She was a really great trainer, constantly engaging the seven participants and checking on their strokes and application. We would also like to thank Maybelline Singapore for their generous sponsorship of makeup products for the participants.

You can spend hours shopping at the drugstores in US – by drugstores I am referring to the likes of Duane Reade, CVS, Rite Aid and Walgreens. A wide range of cosmetics brands are available at these stores, such as Physicians Formula, Neutrogena cosmetics, Covergirl etc.
I have picked out 3 interesting products that I spotted at Duane Reade.
L’Oreal One Sweep Eye Shadow.
