Fantastic Four: Best Drugstore Makeup Products



A friend of mine once told me that she uses only luxury beauty products and would never even consider going to the drugstore to do makeup shopping. Nevertheless, when she saw me wearing my eyeliner, she asked if it was Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long-Lasting eyeliner. It wasn't. She also noticed the texture of my powder and wondered if it was Bobbi Brown Sheer Finish Pressed Powder. Even though I love those brands, but no, it wasn't. I would like to share with you my Fantastic Four straight from your nearest Boots, Superdrug, Walgreens or CVS Pharmacy. 



I re-purchased these four little gems multiple times and excited to share my genuine review of each one of them:
1
[shade: Ivory]
The Good: This little "magic" pencil has traveled back into my makeup bag so many times I can't even remember. It's got amazing coverage (medium to full). Its texture is light and goes on super smooth and blends in perfectly. Boots and Tesco make their profit of me buying it over and over again :) I absolutely love this concealer and will be re-purchasing it when mine is finished.

The Bad: Can't think of anything bad to say about this product, apart from the fact that it finishes way too quickly (if you use it as much as I do!).
2
[shade: Blackest Black]
The Good: This is without a doubt one of my favourite liquid eyeliners of all times! It stays on all day (if you don't cry - happy tears, hopefully), it goes on perfectly and it doesn't dry too quick so you're able to re-apply and fill in those little areas no problem. Even if you are not the world's best liquid eyeliner applier (just like me), you still would enjoy this little guy and come back to it whenever you want that dramatic cat eye.
The Bad: Smudges a bit if we are talking all day. Also, do not cry while wearing it. Just don't :)
3
[shade: Glam Black]
The Good: I've been using this mascara for at least 4 years and it is always my no.1 among all drugstore mascaras. It's got that "claw" brush which helps to separate the lashes perfectly. My eyelashes are naturally curly but this mascara makes them POP even more! Love it, love it, love it!

The Bad: Dries quicker than its high-end relatives but easy to bring back to life by adding just a little bit of water and leaving it overnight or eye drops and it's alive (imagine I said it in Frankenstein's voice lol).
4
[shade: Medium Beige]
The Good: It is the best thing ever! I've used it for YEARS and YEARS and it proved to be amazing every time. It stays on all day, doesn't cake up and gives that lovely matte finish. I normally would just add a bit of shimmer with my Too Faced bronzer and the finished look is perfectly polished.

The Bad: Nada (Nothing).
Hope you enjoyed reading this post about my "Fantastic Four" :) I can definitely recommend trying out all of the listed products. They never disappointed me and I hope you will like them as well.

    1. Thanks for your sweet comment, CJ, and for stopping by my blog :)
      Lumi is amazing. I wouldn't say it's sheer coverage, it's medium for me so that's amazing. I guess some products do work differently for different people & skin types.
      Big hugs your way. Always so nice to discover amazing fellow bloggers ;)
