I started with research on www.beautypedia.com which is one of my favorite sites to research products. I use the "Best Products" lists to try out skin care, so why not use them for makeup products.
Here is the Haul from Walmart and Ulta:
Lots of products to test out - though one you need to try immediately!
Maybelline One by One Volume Express Mascara is one of the top 5 mascaras I have EVER tried. Stop spending $20+ for a tube and get this one right away. Great volume and excellent separation, no smudging (even after a seriously sweaty workout) and killer brush. This product out performs just about everything I've tried.
The list of everything else - which I will be testing out over the next few weeks:
Foundations / Tinted Moisturizer:
Neutrogena Mineral Sheers Loose Powder Foundation
Neutrogena Healthy Skin Glow Sheers Moisturizer
Neutrogena Healthy Skin Enhancer Moisturizer (Linked to my previous review)

L'Oreal Magic Perfecting Base
L'Oreal True Match Super Blendable Powder
