I Love Drugstore Make-up tag!

Hello Everyone,

Today I am going to be doing the I love or *heart* drugstore make-up tag. For those of you who don't know, drugstore means lower end/more affordable make up that you can buy from a chemist.

There are 8 questions in this tag so let's get started!

1. What is your favourite make-up brand overall?

I love lots of different brands! I like Revlon and Max factor but my favourite would have to be L'Oréal as they have such great products in every field.

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

Hmm this is tricky!
My favourite face product would have to be the L'Oréal True Match foundation. It gives a nice amount of coverage with a dewy finish without being sticky or oily. It also has a GREAT shade range *take note Bourjois!*

My favourite cheek product would definitely be the Natural collection blushes. They are so pigmented and such good value. I also featured it in my Time to Blossom post!

My favourite lip product would have to be the Revlon Lip butters as they have a really nice glossy finish.They stay on for AGES and have lots of different wearable shades.

 I also like the Rimmel Kate Moss Matte Collection.

                                                         Revlon Lip Butter in Raspberry Pie

3. Least favorite product?

Hm this is quite difficult as I usually throw out any products that I don't like ASAP! I would have to say any lipsticks in 'fake' colours.

Now what I mean by that is for example an 'orange' lipstick that turns out to be a vibrant salmon on your lips - just no.

 A lot of brands do these lipsticks like Collection, Rimmel etc.

I also hate the no.17 Miracle Matte Foundation. That monstrosity made me look like an Oompa Loompa with an extreme tan! ''ivory'' it said..

I strongly dislike sharp painful eye-liner pencils too!

4. What is the best makeup bargain?

All of the Natural Collection products are such good value! I would definitely recommend you check them out!

                                            Natural Collection 'Blushed Cheeks' in Peach Melba.

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

I really like the No.17 lipsticks AND the Max Factor mascaras. I feel like they don't get enough hype from beauty bloggers and vloggers!

6. A drugstore product that is overpriced?

The Maybelline colour tattoos in Ireland are over €10 and that's really quite expensive for a cream shadow. I'm a big fan of the colour tattoos but wish they were more affordable.

7. Your best drugstore dupe(s)?

I would say that Max Factor's false lash effect is a great dupe for Benefit's they're Real mascara. It gives, in my opinion, just as much volume!

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

This for me is an easy one. The Wake Me Up concealer from Rimmel is just not for me. It made my under eyes look orange and definitely did not wake me up!

I really hope you have enjoyed this post, let me know your favourite drugstore products in the comments below as I would love to broaden my collection!

I will be doing individual reviews of some of the products mentioned too so make sure you stay tuned for that!
