1/ If you have oily skin, this is something you should be in the market for. I use this mattifier every morning on clean skin. It has a thicker consistency and really soaks into the skin. It works great as a moisturizer and primer all in one. I do notice that it keeps my skin looking matte longer throughout the day, however a little shine breaking through is simply inevitable with my [oily] skin. (Similar option here.)
2/ NARS blush in the shade Madly is hands down, probably my most used blush. I call it my everyday blush. This "seashell" medium brown shade contains hints of peach and works amazing with most makeup looks because of its natural tone. It doesn't impart a lot of obvious color, but adds a natural warmth. Here are some swatches. (A cheaper and similar version here.)

3/ The Diorshow Iconic Overcurl mascara was a splurge. I typically would never recommend buying an expensive mascara when the drugstore offers amazing options. However, I never had tried a "curling" mascara and rarely curl my lashes either. Now I'm regretting buying it...because I'm HOOKED! This stuff is so interesting. It really creates an eye-opening effect. Here is a shot of it applied to one side. And the picture doesn't even do it complete justice. [If you want to try a curling mascara but don't want to spend this pretty penny, I know Clinique has one as well as Urban Decay.]

4/ Bumble and bumble Contour Creme has become a favorite as of late. After curing my hair, I like to take a little of this and rub it between my fingers and then run it through my ends and on the roots underneath. This gives my hair some texture and hold, as well as separation at the ends, creating an undone, "messy" look. 
5/ Rimmel Stay Glossy in the shade Non-Stop Glamour was a recommendation via TiffanyD (my fave YT guru, obviously). It's such an affordable gloss [$4.99] from the drugstore that works great paired over any lip color. It reminds me of this spendy Dior gloss. I want to go back to the drugstore and try a few other shades now!
