One thing I love most about the beauty industry is that it's always evolving, the drugstore/highstreet especially. They have a lot of competition from the highend brands, but I have to say the are definitely holding their own. Lately they have been killing it, particularly in the lip colour department, so I thought I would show you 10 of my standout products that I think everyone should have in their collection, even better, 9 of them are under £10.
Let's start with nail polish because I think we all know by now I'm a bit of a fan. Models Own are definitely a favourite of mine, especially if you're on a budget but still want to grow your nail polish collection. Ibiza Mix is very much the "it" colour for me.
I find drugstore foundation to be quite hit and miss it and doesn't help that most colour selections are too dark for my pale skin, but this one from Revlon is lovely, light to medium coverage with a dewy finish.
Drugstore lip products are most certainly giving expensive brands a run for their money. Revlon and Rimmel hit the nail on the head with these two stunners, Candy Apple and 107 are beautiful colours that are perfect for this time of year.
The quality of eyeshadows has definitely improved over the years, the Rimmel Scandaleyes Shadow Sticks are lovely as are the Maybelline Colour Tattoos, they constantly blow me away with the pigmentation! The L'Oreal Infallible are another great addition, though I think the USA got the best colour selection.
The majority of the time I only use drugstore mascaras because you really can't beat them. This one from L'Oreal is one of my favourites, though it is a little over the £10 mark, Maybelline also do some great ones too. There really is so much choice.
Nude eyeliners for the waterline are huge right now and this one from Rimmel is fabulous, creamy, pigmented and most importantly cheap!
Finding blushes from the drugstore for me is a little difficult because I do like my high end counterparts, but the Topshop cream blushes do deserve an honorable mention, especially the shade Head Over Heels shade. Cream to powder formula, pinky coral colour, sold!
What are a few of your favourite products from the drugstore, anything amazing that I'm missing from my collection? Fill me in.
