I love a high end product as much as the next beauty blogger, but my heart truly belongs to drugstores. Boots & Superdrug are my absolute favourites for picking up some amazing products at great prices.
Here are just a few of my must have, will repurchase products.
Real Technique Brushes; Blush Brush, Stippling Brush & Face Expert Brush: I love love love these brushes! I picked up my first brush about a year ago after hearing so much hype surrounding them, and now I can’t imagine not owning any! The brushes are so soft and apply my makeup flawlessly. Such a bargain as well, i’ll definitely be adding more to my collection.
Rimmel ScandalEyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal in Nude: I never understood the hype surrounding nude eyeliners, what difference could they really make to my eyes? A hell of a lot i’ll tell ya!!!! The consistency is really creamy and the pigmentation is incredible. The nude shade is great for cancelling out any redness on my waterline, which can leave my eyes looking dull and tired. It really helps to brighten up my face, opening my eyes.
Bourjois Color Boost Lip Crayon in Peach on the Beach: Bourjois are one of my favourite brands, I love their foundations and lip products! The Lip Crayons are no exception, amazingly moisturising, glossy, non sticky and host an spf 15. Peach on the Beach is the perfect pinky peach shade. It’s so versatile and perfect to just apply and go!
Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer: *Heavens open, angels sing* My holy grail drugstore concealer! It’s so smooth and easy to blend, I tend to use my finger. Its amazing for covering dark circles, leaving my skin looking dewy and really awake. I love the foundation that matches this, however i’ve just run out and am in desperate need to repurchase.
Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder: This is the first and last pressed powder I think i’ll ever use! It’s such a bargain and does an amazing job of mattifying this skin. I get quite an oily chin and wearing a dewy foundation (which are my favourite kind) do nothing to hide the fact, which is where this amazing powder comes in. It keeps the oil at bay and only needs retouching after a good few hours. It doesn’t cake or cling to any dry patches which is another reason that I love it!
Topshop Cream Blush in Flush: I’d say that Topshop makeup is drugstore as it’s so well reasonably priced. The cream blushes are my absolute favourite and the only cream blushes I own, mainly because I haven’t felt the need to try any others. Flush is the perfect pink, peachy coral shade. The colours can look a little scary when in the pan, but the colours can be built up on application. I use the Real Techniques Stippling Blush to dab it on to my cheeks, then blend it in. Although they are creamy, they dry with a more powdery finish. I love topshop makeup and at just £6 for the blushes, they are amazing quality for such a bargain.
Maybelline Color Tattoo 24hr Eyeshadows: I have the shade On & On Bronze (lovely gold, bronze colour) and Pink Gold (a gorgeous champagne, pale pink shade). These are so easy to just quickly apply, blend in and go. They add just the right amount of colour, which you can build up. They are so long wearing and light, not creasing and can last up to 8 hours, 24 hours is a little of an over exaggeration I would say.. amazing none the less.
Revlon Lip Butters in Raspberry Pie & Lollipop: These are the only shades I own from the Lip Butters range, as they are my absolute favourites. They are my favourite berry shades, and my go to lipsticks for Autumn/Winter. Raspberry pie is the perfect deep raspberry colour, where as lollipop is a lovely pink, purple shade. They are so pigmented and incredibly smooth to apply. The colour lasts for an age, I recently wore one on a night out and didn’t need to reapply it for about 5 hours, and that was with eating and drinking *a heck of a lot*.
Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation: My favourite foundation! It is amazingly dewy and gives a really natural radiant finish. I’d say it has a medium coverage but buildable. It feels really hydrating on the skin, which at first I was worried about with my oily chin, but it doesn’t cause any issues at all. It doesn’t cake or cling to dry patches. It is my go to foundation and I really do love it so.
