Hello there you legends! Yes it is that time again (though It’s been too long since my last one!) – It’s time for you guys to see what a real drugstore junkie I am! Yes, it’s time for another edition of the drugstore gems edit. Now I am going to stop myself and jump straight into the post!
Here we go!
I definitely didn’t need to add yet another contouring palette in my collection but when I swatched this in the store I immediately fell in love with it. The shades are so buttery and blendable and I love the contouring options you get. I’m not very tanned (I’m definitely getting paler by the day now that we are in winter) but I am also not stark white so I love a contour shade that gives you a nice chiseled look but it’s not too natural or too intense. The highlighter shades are also gorgeous and I use them for all sorts of things, whether its to set my eyeshadow primer, to clean up my contour or set my concealer. I also love the shimmery highlighter it comes with, it’s very pretty. This is one my go-to contour palettes – the buttery formula is just a standout for me! |Review|
Now I know Makeup Geek isn’t actually a drugstore brand BUT the price point of the eye shadows is definitely at a drugstore level with a magical formula making the quality of the shadows on another planet! They are pigmented AF, blendable, the shade range is magical I cannot tell you guys how much I adore these shadows. It literally doesn’t make me want to even consider high end shadows. I always told myself I wouldn’t go high end with eye shadows until I tried Makeup Geek. Now unless it’s for a custom eye shadow palette I don’t plan to bother with high end eye shadow. I own already 60+ shades and I plan to purchase many more. PS. There will be A LOT of makeup geek related posts coming your way!
I am bloody addicted to highlighters. A common theme with highlighters in the drugstore world is the highlighters are either glittery, chunky and tacky OR it’s a light to medium intensity glow. That’s not the case with this highlighter. The three powder highlighters in this kit give you a gorgeous poppin glow and really look so lovely on the cheekbones! It’s definitely a great drugstore highlighter!
Maybelline mascaras are some of the best in the drugstore! They always come out consistently with awesome mascaras. This one is a one stop shop for me. It just makes my lashes look so dramatic, they look voluminous, long, and just flare out! I love using this, it’s my favourite Maybelline mascaras so far that I’ve tried. |Review|
Last but definitely not least is one of my first makeup loves! This is the first foundation I ever loved. It glides onto the skin and looks beautiful. It sits on the skin so nicely and looks very natural. People do have issues with the shade range of Bourjois because they definitely don’t cater to everyone but I found when a lot of foundations were too dark for me, the shade 52 Vanilla fit me well. It’s just awesome for the everyday! I still love it just the same even though I’ve become far too obsessed with foundation and my foundation collection is ridiculously large! |Review|
