Drugstore Makeup Favourites


I realise that most of the beauty products I’ve talked about in my previous posts were quite premium and pricey. And yes, I do like to indulge myself, but not everything in my makeup bag is high-end. There are some drugstore products that I’ve been loving and repurchasing over and over again. So, here is a list of my favourite purse-friendly makeup buys, each under £8.

DrugstoreMakeupFavourites03 (1280x768)

Maybelline Eraser Eye Concealer – This is an old favourite of mine and one of the best drugstore concealers! It is very effective at covering dark circles and I sometimes use it on any redness on my face. I find it very easy to apply, it’s great for touch ups and I always have it in my makeup bag. £7.99

Rimmel Stay Matte Powder – This is a great setting and mattifying powder. It’s very fine and lightweight and sets my foundation well. I use 001 Transparent, so it doesn’t affect the colour of my base. It’s one of the cheapest powders and works just as well as some more expensive ones I’ve tried. £3.99

DrugstoreMakeupFavourites02 (1280x768)

L’Oreal Color Riche Collection Exclusive Lipstick – I have Blake’s Pure Red, which is a gorgeous matte, bright red. It is very pigmented, lasts for hours and feels very comfortable on the lips. I wore it in this outfit post, so you can see what it looks like on my skin tone. If you love a red lipstick, you should give this one a try. £6.99

Max Factor Color Elixir Lip Liner – I really like this in the colour Red Rush and I pair it with the L’Oreal red lipstick. It is very soft, glides on nicely and keeps my lipstick from smudging. £4.99

DrugstoreMakeupFavourites04 (1280x768)

Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid Lipstick – This is my newest drugstore favourite. I have it in Nude Flush and it is a beautiful pinky shade. It has a thick, creamy formula and more of a satin, rather than a matte finish. I love that it applies opaque with just one layer. £6.99

Rimmel Brow This Way Styling Gel – I bought this in Medium Brown as a replacement for my Benefit Gimme Brow gel and it’s the only product I use on my brows now. It makes them look fuller, but natural at the same time, it keeps them fixed all day, it doesn’t smudge and feels very comfortable and lightweight. And for the price, I’m really impressed. £2.99

Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge – I have been using this and the Beauty Blender for a while now and I’m in love with both of them equally. However, the price of the Real Techniques sponge is a lot more reasonable. It applies foundation flawlessly, better than any brush I’ve tried and I would highly recommend it (make sure to use it wet). £5.99

Finally, a quick mention of the Muji Jasmine & Black Olive candle, which doesn’t fall into the drugstore makeup category, but it smells so good and is quite budget-friendly, so I wanted to give it a shout out.  £3.50

I didn’t want this post to be too long, so I didn’t include any drugstore skincare or haircare products, but let me know if you’d be interested to know about that.
