Well I'm typing this hoping there's at least one of you left after abandoning this blog for a few weeks and I don't really have an excuse except for a lack of time and just my brain not wanting to write a single thing after the mass A Level workload and just not being in the right frame of mind in general for anything. But I am back, maybe a bit randomly and not regularly but I'm trying and today's post is current drugstore favourites as recently I have seemed to abandon all my high end makeup and became obsessed with a lot of old favourites and a few new goodies.
LA Girl Concealer- I ordered this of Beauty Bay a few ago and the shade put me off from using it as it looked slightly dark for my ghostly skin and therefore orange, however, I had one of those killer spots which just don't disappear and hurt like a *****. You know the ones I mean we all get 'em. So, I pulled this out and it's magical, it just made the spot disappear. I was right about the shade being dark despite getting the lightest but when I blended it out it just matched my skin tone but I don't think if you're paler than me it would work as well. It's perfect for spots as its very high coverage and doesn't cake on blemishes. At £3 I was amazed and its definitely my go to for those very bad skin days.
L' Oreal True Match Powder - I am one of those people who swore by Rimmel Stay Matte Powder during the hype and long after despite feeling like it no longer suited my skin type and caked up quite a bit I just couldn't break away from my first 'love'. BUT... I branched out and OMG this is amazing! I don't have the oiliest of skin now I am out of the 'main teenage stage' so this still gives my skin a healthy dewy look but my makeup stays on all day and no longer cakes in my t-zone or beneath my eyes.
Seventeen Contour Powder - I have used this on and off since summer until I got the Benefit Hoola Bronzer but I forgot how good the contour shade is in this duo. I'm not so keen on the highlight mainly because it's not shimmery so I don't really get the point to use it to highlight on a daily basis. However, the contour shade is perfect for my skin tone and can easily be blended out but also built up.
L' Oreal Volume Million Lashes - My hairdresser always had amazing eyelashes and of course as I'm always on the hunt for new products I asked and she used this and it's the perfect mascara. It adds amazing length and volume whilst also separating lashes but can easily be built up to a bit more clumpy (in a nice way). I also find as I have the waterproof formula it holds the curl so much better.
L'Oreal La Colour Nude (Beige) - I am usually a bit picky with drugstore shadows as I often find they lack pigment, unblendable or can be a bit chalky but the shades in this were right up my street. I mainly use the matte browns and the shimmery brown near the end and it creates a lovely everyday smokey eye. The pigment isn't as good as a high-end palette in the shimmers however the palette is mainly made up of matte's which are amazing quality for the price.
Rimmel Lip Liner ( East End Snob)- If you have read my blog for a long time, this lip liner is something I have loved for a very long time as its the perfect colour to wear with MAC Mehr which is my go to nude colour. It makes the lipstick last even longer and is great for slightly overlining my lips. I also find the formula isn't too drying too.
