TAG | I heart drugstore make-up

I was tagged to do the I Heart Drugstore Makeup Tag by the lovely Sophie from Sophie Rosee, so a BIG thank you to her. 

Now on to the Tag!

What's your favourite drugstore brand?
I love Rimmel, especially their lipsticks. I also like Bourjois they do great blushers.

What are your favourite face, cheek and lip products?
Face: I haven't really tried many drugstore foundations, if No7 counts I love their beautifully matte foundation. 
Cheek: I love Bourjois Little Round Pot Cream blushes and also Max factors Miracle Touch Creamy Blushers.
Lips: My favourite lipsticks are Rimmels Lasting Finish by Kate Moss

Least favourite product?
I would have to say Maybelline's Falsies Mascara, I know most beauty bloggers love this mascara but for me it just clumps and flakes and really doesn't make my lashes any longer.

Best make-up bargain?
If Avon counts as drugstore, which I think it should -Amazing bargains.
I think a great makeup bargain is their Super Shock Eyeliner. I absolutely love this, it is quite creamy so it glides along my water line and it lasts all day, while keeping an intense black shade.

What's your favourite underdog product?
I really love Natural Collection Solo & Duo Eyeshadows, good pigmentation and hardly any fall out, for £1.79 you can't really go wrong!

Over priced drugstore product?
L'Oreal Paris GlamShine Stain Splash, I know these are meant to be dupes for the YSL glossy stains but I still think these are a tad bit overpriced.

Drugstore dupes?
Sleek Rose Gold Blush is a great dupe for Nars Orgasm. Although I do not own Orgasm I swatched it in store and they were so close in shades, opted to get the Sleek blush.

Drugstore products that aren't really worth the hype?
For me Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer. DON'T HATE ME. Just for me personally it is quite drying and goes on too thick that it ends up patchy.

  1. ooo Il have to give the Natural Collection Duo a try.. im totally with you on the sleek blush, I have both this blush and orgasm and you can barely notice a difference, infact I would say that rose gold is more pigmented :O .. thanks for the tag lovely :) xx

  2. I agree on the Falsies mascara and the L'oreal stains. And the Bourjois cream blushers are amazing :)

  3. I love Bourjois blushers too! they're so cute and compact but give really nice colour. I have to agree with the collection lasting perfection concealer, it just really doesn't work for me and is too dry and cakey/patchy. Glad to see someone else who has the same problem with it aha! And I bought a natural collection eyeshadow the other day and I really like it, such a lovely pigmented colour.
