So I kind of want to start doing a my favourites series on my blog I’m going to have so many different ones coming up, I’ve got a my favourites NYX products, favourite lip liners and favourite liquid lipsticks etc ccoming up, I’ve got so many posts prepared I’m on a roll!
But today I want to share a couple of my favourite drugstore affordable products with you all. I’m not a snob when It comes to makeup and I don’t only buy highend I do love finding some gems at the drug store, I often shop from maybelline, Loreal, sleek, Barry M and Rimmel, I think those are my all time favourite and also I’ve started buying more NYX and Milani now that it’s easier for us to get hold of them in the U.K.
These are just a few of the products I’ve been loving and using more lately.
Sleek a new day eyeshadow palette
sleek solstice highlighting palette
Nivea aftershave balm
nip+fab dragons blood serum
collection illuminating touch foundation
NYX dewy setting spray
Maybelline master V contour stick
Maybelline Master concealer
Loreal Brow artist plumper
NYX micro brow pencil
NYX liquid suede in sandstorm
Milani cosmetic Matte lipstick in naked
I’ve talked about the sleek highlighter palette so much so I’m not going to bore you all again ha ha but I will say if you love highlighters then you need this one, it’s so amazing and affordable for £10! Next I have this sleek eyeshadow palette in a new day, it’s a gorgeous neutral palette with a selection of nudes, gold shimmers and a few warmer toned shadows, This is such a nice basic palette for everyday looks and only costs £8.99. I’m really loving sleek at the moment they have got some really good products!
face products I’ve been loving, the collection illuminating foundation which is by far my favourite drugstore foundation ever, its medium to full coverage and its so illuminating and dewy, I’ve got the shade porcelain which is a good match. This is only £5.99 and is always on offer. The Nivea aftershave balm I talked about recently in my monthly favourites, I’ve been using this as a primer and absolutely love it, it’s always on offer so if you fancy giving it a go Id recommend trying it, I really like it as a primer I feel like it gives a flawless finish to my makeup. Nip+fab plumping serum I have been using this since before christmas last year and I love it, I use it as part of my morning skincare routine and its a must have for dry or tired skin, this is a little pricey at £19.95 but it’s always on offer for about £10 sometimes less. Lastly is the NYX dewy setting spray, I love using this when I don’t feel like using my MAC fix plus, its good for lots of things setting makeup, spraying brushes to intensify eye shadows and highlighters, this is £7.00 and can be found at boots.
one of my recent purchases I’ve been really liking is the Maybelline master contour stick in light, one side is for contouring and the other is for highlighting, and I actually really like the shade, normally drugstore contour products just don’t work for me, they’re always so warm for my skin tone but this is a really good match for me and blends really nicely, same with the highlighter shade. This is £6.99 which I think is a good price. Next is the Master concealer, this I actually got in America I’m so gutted this hasn’t arrived in the UK yet, why do the US get all the good stuff?? it’s the best concealer for covering spots and scars this is my holy grail concealer and I use this over my higher end products, I’m nearly running out of this which is depressing me.
A couple of brow products that are a must if you are looking for higher end dupes, first up is the Loreal brow artist plumper which is a dupe for the benefit gimmie brow! this has fibres so it makes the brows look fuller same as the gimmie brow, this is only £5.99 and I believe gimmie brow is about £18.50! Nyx micro brow pencil in my opinion is the exact same as ABH brow wiz. I’ve got the brow wiz and love it but if you are after an affordable dupe then this is it, the packaging is almost identical as well plus this is only £7.00 and the ABH brow wiz is £15.50 bargain!!
In the swatch L is the brow gel in medium/dark and R micro brow in Ash brown
can’t forget the lip products now can I? I’m a massive lipstick junkie, I really love the NYX liquid suede’s they aren’t drying at all and I’m praying they bring out more shades as I need them all, they don’t dry down completely which I love, this is the shade sandstorm which a brown tone nude. Milani cosmetics Matte lipstick in naked is a lipstick I’ve been going to a lot its the perfect nude for everyday, I’ve got a lot of rimmel and Maybelline lipsticks that I also love but I thought this one was worth a mention. its £5.99 and available from here as Milani have launched in the UK now yay, I’ve recently just made an order that I will share with you in an upcoming post.
