Other // My Favourite Drugstore Products

I love going into Boots and could quite happily make a day of it. Day out to Boots? Oh go on then. Ha ha, I'm just kidding but I do really like going in and walking up and down the aisles just to look at what there is. Which is probably why I get the majority of my make-up from Boots. I hardly ever buy my make-up online, well, with the exception of the Kylie Lip Kits. The reason of this is because I like to see what I am buying in person rather than wondering what it looks like in the 10 days it takes for it to get to my door. These are a few of my favourite drugstore products, products I would repurchase again and again. 

The MUA Undress Me Too Eyeshadow Palette - £4.00
I have never tried an Urban Decay Naked Palette before and I have never felt the need to since I have owned the MUA Heaven & Earth and Undress Me Too Eyeshadow Palettes. For £4 you get 12 different shades and finishes which vary within the palette and when used with a primer underneath, they last all day long. They are easy to apply, have very minimal fallout and I haven't felt the need to  purchase a pricier palette since this does the job well enough at a very inexpensive price. 

Makeup Revolution Vivid Baked Highlighter in Golden Lights -  £3.00
Everyone is all about the glow at the moment and with the Makeup Revolution Baked Highlighter in Golden Lights, you will be positively glowing. At £3, you get a massive amount of product for your money which is incredibly pigmented and soft in formula. One swipe across the cheekbones gives the loveliest of champagne-coloured glows and it lasts all day long on the face. 

NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams - £5.50
I have tried a few brands offering matte liquid lipsticks now and the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams are definitely the best the drugstore has to offer. Available in 26 different shades, there is definitely a shade for everyone! The shades I have tried have been fairly pigmented and are comfortable to wear on the lips. They aren't the most long-lasting but they are definitely worth considering when on a hunt for a new lipstick in Boots. 

L'oreal Infallible 24 HR Foundation - £9.99
A while ago now I purchased both of the L'oreal Infallible Foundations on offer - this version and the matte version. I am absolutely in love with both. They are pale enough for my skintone without being too orange and they are very long-lasting on the skin as well as offering a medium coverage. I apply both using the Beauty Blender and it applies flawlessly without being patchy or clinging to dry areas on the face. If you are after a very inexpensive foundation then I definitely recommend this range!

L'oreal Mega Volume Collagen Mascara
Don't you hate it when you finally find a mascara you really enjoy using and then find out it's been discontinued? I am yet to find a mascara which has been something to write home about but I really enjoy this mascara, so much so that I have a few more tubes stocked up waiting to be put into use. It really volumised my eyelashes and made them appear much longer and fuller. I really like L'oreal mascaras so I'm sure another mascara from their range will slip into the Mega Volume Collagen Mascara's boots.

Soap and Glory Supercat Liquid Eyeliner - £6.00
I loved this eyeliner so much that I have 5 more sat waiting to be used in my bedroom. When I find a product that I really like, I stock up out of fear of it being discontinued. The Soap and Glory Supercat Liquid Eyeliner is a really pigmented black liner which is easy to apply and stays put all day long when used on top of a primer. I have forgotten this eyeliner in recent months to the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper but I'm sure the Soap and Glory Eyeliner will be put back into use within my make-up bag soon!

Nivea Daily Essentials Express Hydration Primer - £4.99
I was after a new daily moisturiser and came across the Nivea Daily Essentials Express Hydration Primer in Superdrug for around £2 when it was on offer. At the time I had really dry skin on my cheeks and literally nothing was shifting it so I purchased this product for dry & sensitive skin. It promises to moisturise skin as well as providing an even base for foundation which is supposed to prolong the longevity of your make-up. And it works. It really, really works! Since using this product the general wear of my make-up which I used to get over the course of the day has completely stopped, leaving my make-up looking perfect at the end of the day without moving an inch. The dry skin I had has gone and now my skin is looking more hydrated and in a much better condition than before. If I could recommend one product out of everything in this post then it would be this. It's amazing.

Those are my (current!) favourite drugstore products - what are yours?
