Each year my family makes plans to attend the Denver Pop Culture Con which is a huge convention for fans of comics, movies and television. This year’s event will be held May 31st through June 2nd in downtown Denver at the Convention Center. We always enjoy seeing all of the different people in their costumes and sometimes even dress as our favorite characters. Catwoman has always been my go-to costume. I love the Batman movies, new and old so I love to bring that character to life. Thing is, the convention can be grueling at times. There is a lot of walking and standing so wearing a costume all day can be very uncomfortable. Over the years I have found ways to maintain my hairstyles and makeup for those long comic convention days.
I finally pulled out the old camera and whipped up a brand spankin’ new video for my Youtube channel. I love drugstore products whether it be for hair, makeup or skincare so I thought I would share my thoughts on a few of them. Some of the items mentioned are new to me while others are ones that I consider staples.
I’ve been on the hunt for a jet black eyeliner for creating a winged liner or cat eye look. I have bought more than a few products that just didn’t quite fit the bill. I am so pleased to have finally found something that not only looks amazing but stays on until it’s time to take it off. I mean who wants to walk around with only one winged eye right?
I’m also looking forward to the summer months and getting my skin in shape is on my to-do list. In the video I explain how I use my favorite drugstore scrub to get rid of that pesky winter skin. I also picked up a body butter by Shea Moisture which looks promising.

PRODUCT HAUL/REVIEW: HAIR, MAKEUP & SKINCARE
For hair, I found a few items at Sally’s Beauty Supply, which is one of my favorite stores. I also headed over to Target and repurchased a staple conditioner for me and my boys.
Lastly, but mentioned first in the video, are the foundations I’ve tried and what I’m using now. Drugstore foundation has come a long way. Still, I sometimes have trouble finding something that works for my skin. I talk about some of my foundation trials in the video.
As you can probably guess, I love to shop for things that I can find locally and affordably. Maybe one day I will spread my wings and graduate up to bigger and better products. However, today is not that day.
