I wanted to welcome everyone to the first post of my new rebranded blog! I really love doing these top 5 posts simply because they seem to help a lot of people. If you are on a budget or if you just like these brands you will love this post!
First we have the Sleek Makeup Face Contour Kit (£6.49)*. I love this palette because if you’re a beauty lover you will know how hard it is to find a good contour in a drug store often they are either shimmery or too orange but with this palette you have a great block brown colour which chisels out the cheeks, nose, chin perfectly and to top it all off it contains the matching highlighter which is one of my favourite highlighters. Coming in 3 different shades there really is a shade for everyone.
Next we have the Maybelline EyeStudio Color Tattoo in Timeless Black (£4.99) which is a matte black base which i often use when doing a smokey eye, its has to be one of my favourite bases simply because its matte and its pigmented and it works really well and i think it outperforms some higher end products because it sets down and its hard to get off so its perfect for those of you with oily lids! you can apply this to the lid then blend it out and let it set then apply a colour over the top such as a lighter colour to make it brighter and more intense.
I love Scandaleyes Waterproof Eyeliner in Black (£3.99) from Maybelline as if you dont want to shell out for the Urban Decay 24-7 liners then this is a great dupe in the drugstore i find these are a little bit harder than the Urban Decay but there is similarities as they are both quite creamy. This black is a very black colour as i know quite a few liners i have tried from the drugstore haven’t been true black but for £3.99 this is great eyeliner and to mention its waterproof so its perfect for those oily lidded people or those who find eyeliner doesn’t last on the waterline.
This mascara, Does It All from Collection Cosmetics (£4.99) is such a great dupe for the Benefit They’re Real as they both have the plastic head. I find this mascara is really a deep black so its great if you want your mascara to last I find that it gets to the stage of being hard to get off but it thats what you want then this is the mascara for you. Does it all is great at giving you lenght and a bit of thickening of the lashes it basically does the same as They’re Real but i find it dries out quite quickly but at £4.99 that isnt much of a loss as you are supposed to throw out your mascaras regularly
Last but not latest we have the Crown Brush C417 Chubby Shadow Brush (£5.39)* which obviously isnt makeup or available in drugstores but its still in that bracket as i find Crown Brush to be very affordable. The C417 Chubby Shadow brush is a goat hair brush sh its best for powders as creams will tend to clog up this brush, its best for blending out makeup in my opinion but it can also be used for laying down colour on the lids. The C417 Chubby Shadow Brush is quite like the MAC 227 Brush.
