Working in a small village is so good for my bank account – it means I am not constantly spending money on random rubbish. But by the time the weekend rolls around I end up having a bit to buy and recently all my makeup has run out at the same time. So today I am sharing a little drugstore makeup haul including all my staple beauty products!
Max Factor Facefinity Al Day Flawless Foundation ‘Warm Almond’
I have sworn by Max Factor foundations for so long now – the shade range is incredible and the product’s super long lasting! Admittedly I could probably do with a lighter shade but I am still trying to hold on to my Bulgaria tan haha! This only retails for £12.99 and I can’t recommend it enough.
Max Factor Facefinity All Day Primer
I love this primer. The glass bottle and pump feels so much more luxurious than previous primers I have used. My go to primer used to be the Collection Primer and even though the product is great – the packaging feels very cheap, so I am loving this one.
Eylure Brow Pencil ‘Blonde’
I am in a bit of a love hate relationship with this brow pencil. I ran out of my trusty NYX pencil and this was the only one I could get my hands on. I mean the colour is great and it’s very pigmented. But the pencils a little too thick for my liking so the tail of my brow isn’t as clean as I’d like. It’s not the worst, but definitely not the best. When I am next near a NYX counter I probably will pick up another NYX pencil – bad brow day’s never a good one.
Collection Bronze Glow Mosaic Powder ‘Sunkissed’
I have repurchased this bronzer so many times and it is so inexpensive. However, it is super shimmery and warm toned so if you prefer a cool toned bronzer then this isn’t for you. But I freaking love being shimmered up, it makes me feel like a glowy goddess haha!
Collection Pressed Powder ‘Ivory’
I get through quite a lot powder so I never want to splurge on a powder when I know I will be replacing it so soon. I have tried quite a few drugstore powders and this is by far the best. It is good for baking as well as setting and for £1.99 you can’t go wrong really!
Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer ‘Extra Fair’
I’m sorry, I know I basically talk about this concealer in every single makeup post but the newest shade is everything I am living for. I use it under my eyes and down the bridge of my nose and it brightens and highlights so well.
Obsession Setting Spray
Setting sprays are a must for me, I can’t believe I never used to set my makeup. You know when you were a teen and that really bad trend went around about using hairspray on your face? Well setting sprays are the healthy version of that haha! Typically I either use the NYX setting spray or the Revolution one and they have been amazing. But this one I am not 100% sure on. It’s okay and keeps my face matte but I’ve noticed my foundation separating around my nose and chin whereas when I use the other sprays it doesn’t.
I hope you enjoyed this haul! When I started this post I thought I’ll only be talking about a few products, but now I have finished it, I now realise how much I actually bought! In totally this all comes to £45! See you Friday for another post.
Until next time,
