The Drugstore Makeup Tag

I am a huge makeup/beauty junkie.  I absolutely love makeup, I just can’t get enough of it, it’s my love, my life and soon to be my career (fingers crossed).

Unfortunately for my wallet this includes spending a lot of money on high-end makeup stores including MAC, Inglot, Benefit, Urban Decay and Nars makeup. I don’t fully blame You-Tube Beauty Gurus or bloggers, but I do know that watching all those makeup/beauty videos and reading blogs did nothing but add fuel to the fire of my shopping addiction, I honestly don’t think Cían really knew what he was getting into when he started dating me, he’s in a relationship with me, my blog and my makeup kit (bless his cotton socks).

As a result, I will admit that I have a very nice makeup collection with everything you could ever need.
I wish I could write this blog and tell you I have stopped buying makeup and I’m not hoarding it anymore but I would be completely lying I am constantly adding to my collection and it is ever growing but recently instead of going to the high street and going for my normal high end brands I have been hitting the drugstores such as Boots and Superdrug and  I have found some really fantastic goodies, so naturally I had to do this I Love Drugstore Makeup Tag to share with you all…..

The Questions:

1. What is your favorite drugstore makeup brand overall?

Without a doubt it has to be Revlon. The quality of Revlon’s recent releases has been quite impressive and their packaging is looking more elegant. There colourstay foundation is a dupe for my beloved MAC Studio Fix and I can’t get enough of their lip butters.

2. What are your favourite face, cheek and lip products?

Face – Revlon Colourstay Foundation for oily to normal skin. This foundation will not budge.

Cheek – I have yet to find a drugstore cheek product that I completely love but I am really enjoying using the Soap and Glory powders

Lip – Revlon Lip Butters (Strawberry shortcake is my favourite colour)

3.  Least favourite product?

I don’t know if it’s my least favourite drugstore product, but I recently bought a Maybelline Fit Me concealer and I really haven’t been enjoying using it at all.

4. What is the best makeup bargain?

I’m sure this will be everyones answer to this question but it has to be the collection concealer that stuff is absolutely incredible, I always have about 3 in my kit.

5. What is your favorite underdog product? (Something you love that often gets overlooked?)

This is bad but I really don’t have a favourite underdog product, a lot of my favourite products are the go to products of a lot of beauty gurus and bloggers.

6. A drugstore product that is overpriced?

The Revlon Colorstay Foundation may be my favourite drugstore face product but my god it is overpriced. I always try to buy it when it is on sale or when it’s 3 for 2 in Boots.

7. Show your best drugstore dupe(s)!!

As I have previously mentioned it has to be the Revlon Colourstay Foundation, it’s a dupe for MACS Studio Fix Foundation.

8. Drugstore product that isn’t worth the hype?

It may be one of the cheaper mascara options at the drugstore but Maybelline Great Lash Mascara does nothing for my lashes, it clumps and is just nasty.

I really hope you guys enjoyed this post and I tag anyone who wants to take part in it.
