My Top Drugstore Beauty Products


drugstore-makeup-beauty-favourites-loreal-body-shop-foundation-bronzer-maybelline-high-street-nyx-max-factor-bootsIn my last post, I spoke about some of my favourite high-end beauty products so I thought it was about time I spoke about some of my favourite cheaper alternatives. The drugstore seems to be getting better and better and there is a handful of products I couldn’t live without. I’ve rounded up my top 6 products from the drugstore that I rate to be the best out there.

Max Factor Excess Shimmer Cream Eyeshadows

I am not the biggest wearer of cream eyeshadows but these are incredible. The formula is super creamy and easy to blend as well as having amazing pigmentation. The shade range isn’t the best and I do think this is something Max Factor could work on but nevertheless the shades Copper and Bronze are two beautiful wearable colours that could work on many skin tones. I haven’t tried a lot of cream eyeshadows but I think these could rival many high end options!

L’Oreal Infallible Matte Foundation

I say it all the time but I do struggle with a lot of drugstore foundation formulations (tongue twister right there!). That was until I tried this matte offering from L’Oreal and was pretty much blown away by how good it is. This is my go-to everyday foundation and it just works so well on my skin. Matte foundations aren’t what I usually go for but this isn’t drying in the slightest and it’s not overly matte either offering a bit of natural shine to come through. It blends and applies nicely and also has such a nice finish and lasting power. What more could I need, oh and it’s affordable! Full review here.

Maybelline Colour Tattoos 

Another cream eyeshadow that I love. These Maybelline offerings come at a price under £5 and could rival the likes of Mac Paint Pots. In a similar style, these are more of stiffer consistency particularly compared to the Max Factor ones which are more creamy and whipped in texture. For an amazing price, there is a pretty decent shade range to choose from with my favourites including Metallic Pomegranate and Creamy Beige which makes a really nice base shade. These work great as a base colour or even as a one wash wonder type of eye look and they also stay put really well too!

NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams 

A more recent favourite since NYX finally hit the UK. I had been desperate to try out these lip creams for such a long time and I was not disappointed when I finally got my hands on them. At £5.50 they come super cheap and the shade range is very impressive. The formula is super creamy and comfortable on the lips with a pretty decent lasting power. My favourite shade probably has to be Prague. See more here.

Max Factor Creme Puff Blushes

A product you’ve probably heard me talk about countless times! These are by far the best drugstore blushes I’ve ever tried.  These swirly effect blushes act as a strong rival to the Hourglass blushes which are stunning but super pricey! At just a fraction of the price, these are so similar with a highlighting effect on the skin and a pretty range of shades to pick from. My favourite shade has to be Lavish Mauve which is a pretty good dupe for Hourglass Mood Exposure.

The Body Shop Honey Bronzer

Last but not least, in fact probably my all time favourite drugstore product. I was never really into bronzers until I tried this Body Shop offering. As someone with pale skin I always have the problem in bronzer shades that are too dark and muddy on my complexion. Enter this range of honey bronzers from The Body Shop with a shade range perfectly suitable for fairer skin tones. Seriously, if you are a pale milk bottle like me and haven’t tried this then go try it! This bronzer adds a beautiful amount of warmth to the skin that isn’t too much as well as adding a bit of definition and sculpting the face. Amazing!

  1. I have the Excess Shimmer in Copper and it is truly amazing! I much prefer the whipped texture of these to the Colour Tattoos actually. I’ve heard so many good things about NYX, I hope to try some of their lip products at some point 🙂

    • They are so beautiful! Think I agree actually, the whipped texture is so nice to apply! I have been really impressed by NYX especially their lip products! Definitely worth a try if you can get your hands on them!

      • I have two colour tattoos and I find them really dry – maybe I got bad ones – but I also find the colour a bit patchy. They seem to work better as a base with a shadow the same colour applied over top.

      • Aw that’s too bad! The texture is definitely much drier in comparison to the Max Factor ones but I still find them really creamy and pigmented! They definitely work well as a base too though !

    • No bother! Glad you liked it! The Maybelline eyeshadows are so nice! Such a bargain product! The L’Oreal foundation is so good, you should definitely try it! I’ve never tried the NYX lip butters but I am impressed so far with their lip range!
