My Drugstore Die-Hards...

I know it can't be just me who has absolute can't-be-without beauty products.
Most of the time I end up buying two of these in case of discontinuation or fear of not being able to find it when I eventually run out.
Whatever my reasons, these products are my complete favourites from the drugstore, ones that I use most if not every day and ones that I genuinely can't not have in my collection. 

First up is the Loreal Absolute Eye & Lip Makeup Remover (£5.49). I've recently just re-purchased this after about a month of not having one and each time I've come to take off my makeup, I've missed it. The two-part solution removes stubborn eye makeup without a hitch, and lipstick's gone in pretty much one swipe. I then follow it up with a full cleanse to remove the rest of my makeup. I absolutely love this stuff. 
Also from Loreal is the Infallible 24h-Matte Foundation (£7.99). My current favourite drugstore foundation - I have it in three shades. It lasts well and keeps my complexion matte for longer than any other base I've tried. I love that even though it's a mattifying formula it doesn't cling to any dry patches and doesn't feel heavy or look cakey on the skin. 
Bourjois' Healthy Balance Powder (£8.99) is my ultimate holy grail powder. I've been using this stuff for the best part of a year now and I've yet to find a better one that doesn't cost a bomb. It provides coverage, doesn't appear cakey no matter how much you put on and sets everything in place. 
I have to admit that since buying this I've not minded doing my brows nearly half as much as I usually do. Makeup Revolution's Ultra Brow Kit (£7.99) is my holy grail brow kit. I use it everyday and have been doing for the past 4/5 months and as you can tell from the above picture, I've still yet to hit pan on any of the product. I use the shade Fair to Medium and it's perfect for simply filling in sparse areas or giving yourself some serious brow game.
Last up is my wear-to-death lipstick - Essence's Longlasting Lipstick in Cool Nude (£2.30). The perfect Kylie Jenner mauvey-pink that literally goes with any complexion and any makeup look. I use this lipstick everyday to finish off my look, and it lasts well too.

I love finding drugstore favourites as I always prefer to save money where I can. Even though some people prefer an entire high end makeup collection, I'd much rather go in to Boots or Superdrug and come out with 6 things than head into Selfridges and only come out with 2 for the same amount.



  1. The Healthy Balance powder is great for even my dry skin! Its also my own holy grail :)
