Drugstore Gems | #3

Hey hey hey you wonderful people! It’s time for another installment of drugstore gems. Pretty much where I put my drugstore makeup addiction to good use and talk about some pretty wonderful drugstore products. I have done two of these so far, click on the numbers if you want to see them. (1, 2).

Let’s get a move on shall we, there’s lots to talk about!

Makeup revolution ‘Hot Spice’ Blush Palette

This blush palette is filled with wearable everyday blush options, great for if you want shades that pretty much go with any makeup look. The shades run on the warm side and are just super flattering. If you have fair skin, you’ll love this blush palette. Click here to read the review

Innoxa Age Serum foundation

This foundation is seriously like some kind of voodoo. It’s both full coverage and amazingly hydrating. The shade range is a bit iffy, but this foundation is amazing! If you have dry/ dehydrated skin, you’ll love this. I need to pick up a new shade because my current one has become wayyyy to pale for me and I miss this baby.

Face of Australia Translucent loose setting powder

This is a pretty easy to use setting powder that does the job with minimal fuss. it sets your foundation but doesn’t look cakey or make your complexion have that awful powdery/dusty look to it. You get a lot of product and it’s super affordable.

NYX butter glosses

These nyx butter glosses are just my go to for when I want to slap something on my lips with minimal thoughts. They have a pretty incredible shade range and some of the shades go on crazy pigmented and the others give you a beautifully natural amount of color on the lips. They also smell lovely and feel very comfortable on the lips. If you want to read the review on these, click here.

BH cosmetics blending eye shadow brush

I love many many brushes from this brand but this particular blush is the best for blending out crease colors, applying a transition shade into the crease or just giving your lid a wash of color! And it’s so affordable as well and nice and fluffy.

Makeup revolution Brow dual ultra-brow arch & shape

My go to ride or day, brow product. I am super lucky to have very full and thick brows. So in that department it’s pretty low maintenance. They crayon end works very well for my brows as it just does the job easy and the product is creamy. I personally use the felt tip end for eye liner and it works amazing for that job.


And that wraps up this installment of drugstore gems. Have you tried any of these products? What drugstore goodies do you guys love? Tell me about them in the comments below! I hope you all have a wonderful day and I’ll see you in the next post.

      Yes there are. It’s actually quite a growing thing in a lot of makeup brands. Bourjois has a healthy mix serum foundation, I believe there is bobbi brown serum foundation as well.

    Drugstore makeup often is of such good quality! I’m loving Rimmel product at the mo, but I’ve been interested in NYX for a while now so I’m looking into getting some of their stuff!

      I have so many drugstore favorites it isn’t funny. I’m definitely an addict of drugstore makeup. There is just as much chance one could not end up liking a high end makeup product- each person has their own experience.
