♡ drugstore first impressions ♡

October 27, 2018

 I haven’t really got much new makeup recently, I’ve been loving what I’ve got and just not needed to try anything different so I’ve stuck to that, until now. Last month I was lucky enough to win 3, yes 3 giveaways!!

 This meant I was left with so many new products I could try and I just couldn’t resist doing a blogpost showing you guys my opinions! Drugstore makeup can be so underrated! I know some products are proper gems yet others are hidden secrets and I’m always out to trying and finding them both!!

 To start with, I got the revolution ultra contour kit - lightening in contour 02. I knew instantly I wouldn’t like the cream highlighter as I don’t like creams and I was right so I can’t judge that since I’m instantly biased. the powder highlight is okay, it’s nothing special and kinda powdery but the contour shade is the same! I love the tone, since it’s light it works on my pale skin and isn’t too orange. I don’t think the palette is special, I like it and I’ll use it now I’ve got it but I wouldn’t re buy. 

Next is a lipstick i got, honestly I don’t think I’d have chose this in the shop - the brand or the shade but I’m pleasantly impressed it’s the Nyx pin-up pout in resistance. I love the creamy formula of the lipstick and how it isn’t drying yet full of pigment! Personally the colour is out of my comfort zone but I’m trying, it’s not too far! I don’t know if I’d wear it out the house all in all but I’m going to try since I do like the dark autumnal vibes of it.

 Next is another product I don’t think I’d have chose this in the shop it’s the Collection finishing touch liquid highlighter in gleam 1. I’m not a liquid highlight person either, they don’t impress me in the slightest as I can’t use them so I’ve been mixing this under my foundation and I’m glowing with it! It’s not too much but it’s there and it helps me look so much healthier. I might not be using it for its original purpose but I’m loving how I’ve adapted it.

 Finally is the Nyx contour intuitive eyes and face sculpting palette in jewel queen. This is the product I haven’t reached for the most as it’s got coloured shadows I wouldn’t wear and coloured highlighters. Honestly I’m impressed with the pigment, nyx did come though!! Nothing is powdery it’s just honestly what you’d expect.

 I so think the drugstore is underrated, they have some gems of products that people find realise and I know I love them! I always go to the drugstore before high end as sometimes you don’t need to spend lots to get your moneys worth.

  1. You're right - drugstore makeup is so under rated! One of my favorite highlighters is by revolution. It's a total Tarte dupe. I've also been looking at that NYX lipstick, I'm just nervious because I'm not a huge fan of their liquid lingere. Though I know it's a cream lipstick, I still have reservations. I might give it a shot now.

    Cheers xx

  4. I love drugstore make ups because they work like magic, well for me they are. Plus they're not that expensive and they last even longer than high end ones! Love reading this post xx
