Drugstore Favourites

I think it's become pretty clear that I love my luxury makeup products however I do enjoy finding a bargain in the drugstore, so for today's post I'm going to be sharing with you my top drugstore finds.

Maybelline Baby Skin Primer
I've tried a fair few drugstore primers in the past and this one is at the top of my list. It's great at smoothing out the skin allowing foundation to glide on top with ease and I dont tend have a problem with silicone primers like this particular one (as i know some people hate silicone primers). I wouldn't necessarily say it prolongs the wear of my makeup however it improves the application due to its smoothing effect and for that I enjoy using it. 

Loreal infallible Matte foundation
Similarly I've tried many drugstore foundations and I tend to be quite picky and stick to my beloved high end foundations, although this is the only drugstore foundation that I go back to. It reminds me a lot of the Mac 'Studio Fix' foundation as its matte, long lasting and has fantastic coverage. It has a great formula and provides a great finish for a drugstore product and I like the tube packaging. 

Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer
This is probably the most talked about drugstore concealer in the beauty community and for a good reason. First of all, it's ridiculously cheap but the product itself is fantastic too. It can be used under the eyes or on any blemishes as it has great coverage.It creamy, easily blendable and a little goes a long way. My only con would be that the writing on the packaging fades easily but that's not too big of an issue because I really love the product itself. 

Bourjois Healthy Balance Powder
This is by far my favourite drugstore powder. It's finely milled and leaves the skin feeling smooth and looking matte whilst also appearing healthy rather than flat like matte powders normally do. I use this powder everyday to set my eye shadow primer and it works wonderfully to ensure my eyeshadows blend well. I would definitely recommend this product if you're in need of a new powder.

Soap and Glory Solar Powder
This is a great bronzer for those of us with fair skin who want a natural bronzed look. This would be the perfect bronzer for somebody who is just starting out with makeup because it's not too overly pigmented which means you cant possibly over do it. It gives your skin a sunkissed look without looking orange or muddy which I really appreciate. Overall I would most definitely recommend this bronzer as it's my favourite from the drugstore.

Milani Baked Blush in "Luminoso"
I could honestly talk about this blush forever and I may even go as far as saying it's my all time favourite blush ever. I reach for this product on a daily basis and tend to gravitate towards it over all of my higher end blushers. It's a flattering warm coral shade that goes with every look and gives the skin a radiant and beautiful glow. It has finely milled shimmer which doesnt look too glittery on the skin and I honestly think this blush would suit everyone. If you're going to buy one item from this post I suggest it be this product because I absolutely cannot live without it. 

Seventeen Instant Glow Shimmer Brick in 'Pink Bronze' 
One thing I really think the drugstore are lacking is a killer highlighter and I must admit I reach for my higher end ones more often, however out of all my drugstore highlighters this would be my favourite. It has good pigmentation and leaves your cheeks looking radiant and glowing. Its very well priced and the individual colours can be used as eyeshadows too.

Soap & Glory Brow Archery in 'Brownie Points'
This is hands down the best brow product I have tried from the drugstore. Everything down to the shade, ease of application and pigmentation is perfect. I have very sparse and fair eyebrows and this enables me to create a defined yet natural brow. It easy to blend and create that perfect shape and the packaging is great also. Overall I advise that you try this product out if you haven't already as it is truly amazing. 

Nyx Tame & Frame Brow Pomade 
There aren't many appreciable brow products in the drugstore that I've found personally nonetheless this Nyx brow pomade is for sure one to try. It's said to be similar to the Anastasia brow pomade which i neither agree or disagree with. It's buildable, long lasting, well priced and easy to apply. This paired with the Soap & Glory brow archery set you up for killer brows.

Makeup Revolution Ultra 32 Shade Matte Eyeshadow Palette 
Another thing I think the drugstore are lacking is high quality/ pigmented eyeshadows especially with a wide range of colours. This is a wonderful neutral eyeshadow palette at a low price. They have superb pigmentation, blend with ease, and last well all day. If you're looking for eyeshadow palettes in the drugstore makeup revolution have a great selection. 

Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara 
I have very short lashes so I find it difficult to seek the perfect mascara that can lengthen and volumize my lashes however this is an impressive drugstore mascara. It separates and add lengths to my lashes without appearing clumpy. It doesnt flake off throughout the day or transfer and it's removed effortlessly. This is definitely a drugstore mascara you need to try! 

Rimmel Exaggerate Lip Liner in 'Eastend Snob' 
This is one of the creamiest lipliners Ive ever used and it's from the drugstore! I must admit I'm a huge fan of the Mac Lip liners but these rimmel liners are just as good and for a fraction of the price. It's a natural pink shade that goes on smoothly without dragging the lips. It enhances the shape of my lips well without drying them out or feeling uncomfortable. This is undoubtedly a must have product. 

Nyx Lip Lingerie in 'Push Up' 
When it comes to lipstick I'm for sure a high end girl although this product has soon become a favourite. I really enjoy wearing liquid lipsticks although I cannot stand one that too drying. This product doesnt dry my lips out in the slightest and it doesnt flake or go patchy throughout the day. My favourite is the shade 'Push Up' which is the perfect pinky nude. As a whole I fully recommend Nyx lip products as they are fantastic and wonderfully priced. 

That concludes my Drugstore favourites, I hope you enjoyed this post and found it somewhat helpful. Let me know in the comments your favourite drugstore product! 

With Love,
