Best Drugstore Brands For...


I love finding things at the drugstore that I love, as their normally pretty cheap and easy to find in your local Boots or Superdurg, and sometimes even supermarkets. Over the years there's been a lot of drugstore brands I love and will go back to time and time again for various bits. Today I will be covering makeup but if you want a similar post focusing on hair, body ect then leave a comment down below.

Base first, and we'll start off by covering primers and skin perfecters. I love priming my skin, it feels softer, makeup applies more evenly and whatever I put on top lasts longer. Perfecters are great for no makeup days when you still want your skin to look even and glowing. I love The Body Shop primers, especially the Vitamin C Glow Enhancer and the Instablur as they both help to smooth out the skin and give it a more perfected look without using a layer of foundation. Other primers I love are from L'Oreal and MAX Factor. For foundation I always go to L'Oreal, their True Match and their Infallible Matte are great for everyday and are very similar to some high end ones I own and love. If you've tried both of these, Bourjois have a great range too which are a lighter coverage and formula. I love the highlighting concealers drugstore brands do, the ones from L'oreal and Maybelline are fab and I love how they cover but also lift and brighten the under eye area. If you want something a bit more high coverage the Collection Lasting Perfecting Concealer is one I would recommend. As for powders the two I love are the Soap and Glory Kick Ass and the Bourjois Healthy Balance powder. These both take away any unwanted shine but still leave the skin looking natural and non cakey. 
Cheek products are something I love to buy at the drugstore too. They have a great range of blushers, both cream and powders, and you can find some really good bronzers too. The Soap and Glory Solar Powder is the first bronzer that comes to mind and I love having the two shades that I can mix or use separately. Another one I love would be the Body Shop Honey Bronzer which is a lovely matte brown shade, not too orange, nor too grey. For blush I love the ones from MAX Factor, their cream and powered formulas I really rate. Bourjois also do some nice cream formulas and Sleek do some that are very comparable to NARS
Eye liners, shadows and mascaras are probably my favourite things to buy at the drugstore as the quality and range is actually pretty amazing. For eyeshadows Maybelline and L'Oreal are my favourites as the quality is great, Maybelline for their creams and L'Oreal for their powders. Sleek do some lovely palettes too. Liners, I love the Rimmel Scandal Eyes Pencils as they are super creamy and last ages. Soap and Glory's Supercat liner is fab, it's really black, doesn't dry out quickly and the nib is really easy to manoeuvre and create the look you want. Collection also do a nice liquid liner too, which isn't in pen form. For mascaras you all know my fav brands to go to are L'Oreal for their Telescopic, MAX Factor and Maybelline. I don't think you need to spend a tonne of money for a good mascara, try one from one of these brands and I'm sure you won't be disappointed.
Lips now and my favourite lip formulas have to be from Revlon, I think they do lips so well. Their lip butters are the first products that got me coming back for more and since they've released their Matte Balms their Ultra HD lipsticks which are both great. Bourjois do a really god liquid lipsticks - just not the shade Grand Cru - and the L'oreal and Tanya Burr glosses are the ones if you love a good, non-sticky gloss.
