Beauty: 6 Drugstore Beauty Buys You Need Right Now

Sunday, February 19, 2017

Is there anything better when you’re a beauty addict and you find an absolute gem of a beauty product in a drugstore? I think not. I find that with so many new releases and affordable brands it’s now even harder to distinguish great drugstore beauty products. This post includes products from some of my favourite brands including Rimmel. NYX, Lottie London and Essie. What’s even better is that none of these products cost over £16 (the most expensive is the eye shadow palette!)

Lottie London Soap Star Brush Cleanser - £6.99

For years when I’ve been washing my make-up brushes all I have used is Johnsons Baby Shampoo and it’s worked well. But now it’s got to the point that I’m curious about what other products there is out there. I’ve found that with my Beauty Blender it’s harder to clean with shampoo but this brush soap cleanser from Lottie London works like an absolute dream. I just run the tap to dampen the soap and then swirl my dirty make-up brush (or sponge) on top to remove the makeup and leave the brushes/sponge to dry overnight. What’s great is this cleanser really doesn’t break the bank, as it is under £7.

Essie Nail Polish in Chinchilly - £7.99 
I think this is the only nail polish, which I’ve used for at least since Christmas, and I absolutely adore it. I find this colour really suits my skin tone and the colour lasts so long on my nails. With a gel coat on top, a lot of the girls at work have asked me if I’ve had my nails done when I’m wearing this.
Rimmel Brow This Way Eyebrow Kit - £3.99 (currently buy one get one half price in Boots)
This past month Rimmel have seriously upped their brow game and brought out a whole bunch of new products (which are all pretty good FYI) but this brow this way palette is a firm favourite of mine. They’re so cheap at only £3.99 and it’s the perfect ‘on the go’ palette. I use this just to add more depth and colour to the sparse sections of my eyebrows and the brush and spoolie which come with this kit are super handy too!

Lottie London Slay All Day Matte Lipsticks in TBT & Hey Bae - £5.99 each
Lottie London is a brand I think which has been really underrated in the beauty blogging world but I have always really liked the brand. Recently, I noticed on ASOS they have a whole bunch of new products so I couldn’t help but pick these two shades up. The lipsticks are incredibly pigmented for the price and the colour pay off is gorgeous. My favourite shade of the two is TBT and I’ve just seen on ASOS this shade also comes as a ‘lipkit’ I’m now refraining from buying the matching lip liner…

Now are you ready for a bold statement? I think this eye shadow palette is the best drugstore make up palette I have EVER tried. I remember seeing people talk about this palette on YouTube but it has always been out of stock when I’ve come across it. About a month ago (maybe a little longer ago) my boyfriend and me were in the Trafford Centre and I found it! It’s only £16 but out of stock on the Boots site but for an extra £2 you can get it in stock at Cult Beauty. The shades are absolutely amazing, the shadows are great for creating day time looks and night time looks.

Have you tried any of these beauty products? What are your favourite make-up products at the moment?

I've never tried anything from Lottie London or it never appealed to me until I started reading your blog. Thank you for making me try such an underrated brand because I absolutely love the lip kits and soap star
