Favourite Drugstore Makeup

sometimes there’s nothing better than having a good browse in the drugstore. german drugstores used to be the most boring thing with no brands I liked and new launches were nowhere to be seen. I wanted nothing more than being able to go to a boots or Superdrug and to be fair, I still feel like a kid in a candy store whenever I have a chance to visit one of the above but in recent years, German drugstores have truly stepped up their game. new brands have been added, new launches hit quickly and I love it. my bank account not so much. despite having a real love for high-end makeup, I really have found great products in the drugstore and I thought it was about time I share them with you. there might be a few products in there that I can’t actually buy in the drugstore but comes at a drugstore price so I thought I would add them in too.
one of my favourite brands of all time just had to be the ordinary. they not only do amazing skincare but also have options for foundations. the serum foundation is just one of the best products I have ever added into my collection. it has the softest and lightest finish and makes my skin look perfected, even and glowy but doesn’t cover freckles. its perfect for my day to day needs and is so affordable too. the best drugstore concealer for me just has to be the collection lasting perfection concealer. I bought my first one years ago and there’s just nothing like it for the amazing price point. it covers and lightens but doesn’t crease. its perfect. lately, I have been really into loose setting powders to set my concealer. there’s just no better way for me. many great setting powders are quite expensive but there’s one drugstore powder I absolutely adore. its the makeup revolution lace powder. its such a fine powder and it sets my concealer perfectly and flawlessly. its probably the best drugstore powder i have ever used.
for me, there’s no need to buy high-end mascaras and eyeliners. the drugstore does amazing ones so there’s no need to invest. l’oréal is my go-to brand. their liquid liners are jet black and work amazingly. the ultra-precision by superliner is my current favourite. I also swear by l’oréal mascaras and their newest one didn’t disappoint. the unlimited mascara has a plastic brush and adds length and volume. it’s quite dramatic but that’s what I love. another thing makeup revolution does very well is palettes. no matter if blushes or eyeshadows but I mainly use their blush palettes. the hot spice palette is beautiful and contains all the colours I love. last but not least, let’s talk about some lip products I have never mentioned. the lip liners by ps beauty from Primark and probably the cheapest I can find and they are so good. very creamy and they have so many amazing colours. toffee, red velvet and desert sand are my fave.

so here we are. my drugstore makeup favourites. have you tried any of them and what do you think? please let me know what your favourites are.
