5 minute face on a budget {my routine}

When doing a 5 minute face my motto is K.I.S.S....Keep It Simple Sister. Last week I purchased two items that are quickly becoming huge favourites:
Revlon New Complexion One-Step Compact makeup in shade 02 Tender Peach (far right in pic) is a cream foundation that blends beautifully into skin and the result is a natural flawless complexion. Best for combination or dry skin gals.
The other recent favourite is Physicians Formula Bronze Booster bronzer in shade Light to Medium, a gorgeous subtle apricot/bronze shade that has a bit of shimmer. Looks alot more shimmery in the package but is a very subtle colour and best for light to medium skin tones. Definitely check this product out next time your at the drug store, I purchased mine on sale normally its around $20 cdn but I got it for $13 cdn.
Milani Minerals Blush in shade Luminous, beautiful pinky/mauve with gold shimmer that gives a natural hint of flush to cheeks.
Almay Brow Defining Pencil in shade 01 Dark Blonde (as mentioned in my April faves), great drugstore brow pencil.
Marcelle Concealer Palette in shade Universal Beige. A good on a budget concealer, pigmented, creamy and the shade on the bottom left corner of the palette is a good dupe for MAC nc20 concealer.
Rimmel Sexy Curves mascara in shade 003 Extreme Black, my favourite mascara at the moment. And I always buy the blackest shade available in any mascara. This mascara never fails, volume, length and clump-free.
Vaseline Lip Therapy in Rosy Lips, lush, moisturized lips with a hint of colour and lots of shine without the sticky factor.
What are your favourite on-a-budget products for an easy 5 minute face?
