NEW IN AT THE DRUGSTORE + FIRST IMPRESSIONS

best drugstore primers
One piece of feedback I'm always getting is that you all want more drugstore/affordable products in my content, I used to be such a makeup snob i’ll admit that (and | still kind of am,) but honestly thanks to the recommendations from other bloggers last year I found some real gems that made me realise I didn't need a £30 primer everyday.  That being said, I certainly don't get the same excitement and buzz buying drugstore products than I do with high end, there’s something about spending too much money on pretty make up that just makes me feel fulfilled and ecstatic. But, I want to give the people what they want and make my content relateable for everyone, low budget or high - hence forth this drugstore haul.



loreal primer shot infallible
Last year I discovered two amazing drugstore primers that I still use today, so I was really happy to see a whole new range of primers from L’oreal as part of the 'Infallible,’ collection - there’s 5 new primer ‘shots’ - anti redness, pore minimising, mattifying, anti fatigue and luminizing - I opted for the two that best suited my combination skin type - pore reducing and mattifying, but i also picked up the luminizing shot because lets be honest, the packaging is so funky (it’s the holographic tube in case you hadn’t guessed) Plus, this new range is currently 3 for 2 in Superdrug! So far, so good - I’ve got a full blog post coming up soon comparing these to primers in my high end stash.

loreal foundation stick review
Also in the new extended L’oreal Infallible collection was the Longwear Foundation Stick. I’ve only ever tried the NARS foundation stick (read a review of that here,) and honestly this one was a real step down. I personally haven’t gotten along with this foundation stick and I don’t think it’ll be coming back out of my drawer for the foreseeable. I found this foundation stick clung badly to my skin, it emphasised pores and dryness and just didn’t blend well. I’m intrigued to read any other reviews on this product that might want to make me try it again.

tarte shape tape dupe make up revolution review
Of course I had to get the one thing everyone and their mum is talking about right now, the Makeup Revolution Conceal and Define concealer. Unfortunately, I still haven’t had the pleasure of trying Tarte Shape Tape because QVC never have my shade in stock. I had to get shade C6 because everything lighter was sold out, but surprisingly its actually a good shade match for me. This is the first drugstore concealer i’ve purchased since I was like, 14 - and although i’m not crazy about it, i’m not mad either. This stuff gives really decent coverage and blends pretty well considering it’s under a fiver, i’ll admit it isn’t as creamy as my usual Urban Decay or NARS, but this is cheaper than 20 chicken nuggets. I really like the packaging, big doe foot applicator and how long it lasts.

Last but not least, I finally found the Maybelline Master Chrome highlighters! They’re officially in the UK now guys (although not all of the shades,) I got the Molten Gold shade, which is really just a light pure gold. The pigment isn't amazing, nothing compared to my high end highlighters, and the texture isn't soft or buttery. It's nice, but not the best by any means. I'll use it now and again - but again, it was cheap so I'm not complaining too much. 

I'd love to know if you've picked up any of these newbies recently and how they worked for you!
