This blog will just be a quick review of my favourite drug store products!! I used to be a high end makeup and beauty junkie, however I am trying to cut down so instead I am on a serious quest to find the cheapest and the best available products! If you disagree with any, or could recommend any that you think I should try pleaseeee let me know 🙂
1. Bourjois 123 Foundation
High coverage, long lasting, dewy finish…perfect for anyone that has oily combination skin like I do. I was so excited for this foundation as drugstores do not usually cater for skin types like mine!!
2. Bourjois flower primer
Silky, smoothing only down side is there is only a small amount of product for the price…BOOO
3. Collection 2000 concealer
Rediculously good coverage, long lasting and best of all its under £3
4. Barbara Daly concealer
High coverage, creamy concealer! Amazing staying power aswell! Possibly stay clear of this one if you have dry skin. Barbara Daly products are available from Tesco’s, and I cannot even explain to you how good a value they are!! I bought this when I had forgotten my makeup bag, and it was actually better than the stuff I had left at home…and it was cheaper!!
5. Real Techniques Stipling Brush
This is the best thing I have ever bought!! I am a massive Pixiwoo fan, and am always watching their videos! So I was really excited when Sam brought out her own brushes!! This brush I use to apply my foundation, and I will never go back to using the normal flat streaky foundation brushes!! It really works the foundation into your skin so it looks flawless!! Please let me know if any of their other brushes are as good??
6. Benefit lip tint
This is amazing!! Make sure your lips are moisturized first though!! It does exactly what is says, tints your lips!! If your like me and hate that your have to constantly reapply you lipstick then this is probably for you!! It is a really nice red/pink colour and stays on until you remove your makeup!! Also because it does not have the creamy shine that a lipstick has, it is great for adding a bit of colour in the day time!!
7. Revlon colour stay nail varnish
These are amazing matter nail varnishes that come in a massive array of colours, which is brilliant!! They also dry relatively quickly, which is good if you don’t like to wait around like me!!
8. Une mineral foundation
Buildable coverage, amazing for your skin!! By far much better than bare minerals and laura mercier’s mineral powder, and its cheaper!!
9. Eyelure individual lashes
Great if you have tiny eyes like me, and the ready made eyelashes are constantly too big for you!! Granted they are quite fiddly, but definatly create a nice effect!!
10. Dream matte mousse blusher
Gives a really nice dewy finish!! Doesn’t leave those annoying blush lines and works great with a liquid foundation!! Will be perfect for spring/summer when it finally gets here!!
