Drugstore Gems


Hello Lovelies!

I hope you are all having a lovely relaxing weekend! You all know at this stage there is nothing I love more than a Boots splurge! I love that you can pick up about three or four items for the same (if not cheaper) price as a high end product. Now I will always be a snob about some products and will always need certain high-end products in my life but I do love my high-street bargains too. So I thought I would share some of my favourites with you.

Rimmel Foundation
I am such a massive fan of all of the Rimmel Foundations. I think they are amazing quality for the price, their Wake Me Up foundation blew up all across the beauty community last year and since then it's been a firm favourite of mine. I also love the Match Perfection for days when I don't want such a dewy look. They all give brilliant coverage and are brilliantly long lasting! I just wish that the colour range was abit better but that is my only complaint! 

Maybelline Falsies Mascara
I feel that Maybelline have really hit the nail on the head the past while with their mascaras. Really good price for amazing results! I am such a massive fan of the Original Falsies, I have the flared version too which I don't like as much but the formula of both is amazing! It holds a curl all day and it is the blackest mascara I have found yet! 

Real Techniques Brushes
If you haven't heard of the Real Techniques brushes what rock have you been living under? The brushes created by Pixiwoo sister Samantha Chapman have been creating waves of excitement for make-up lovers worldwide! The infamous brushes have even been spotted in a Taylor Swift music video! I've had mine for nearly a year now and I have reached for them literally everyday! They are such amazing quality and mine have had no issues of shedding at all! They are all brightly coloured and look amazing on your dressing table too! They are such an amazing bargain and I would definitely recommend you give them a go! 

Rimmel Scandal Eyes Eyeliner
I have been obsessed with these ever since they came out. I'm a big fan of eyeliner in general but I always found it difficult to find one that lasted longer on my waterline. Enter Rimmel Scandal Eyes. These eyeliners are ridiculously long-lasting. They apply like a dream, you can blend them out if you want and once they set they do not budge! The other thing I love about these eyeliners is that there is a Nude colour in the range! I had been on the hunt for a decent nude eyeliner for so long and when I discovered that there was one in the Scandal Eyes range I quickly snapped it up!

L'oreal Glam Shine Stain Splash
The newest love of my make-up life, the L'oreal Glam Shine Stain Splashes. I have been waiting for these to be released as soon as I heard the rumours that they were going to be dupes of the YSL Glossy Stains! I've done a whole review on these beauties here. But long story short they are absolutely amazing and even though they are over-priced in Ireland, if you buy them at UK prices they are a bargain! 

Barry M Nail Paints
I think everyone will have at least one of these beauties in their collection, the infamous Barry M nail polishes! They literally have every colour you could ever think of and amazing quality too! They've recently began to expand their range with nail -polishes with different finishes like the Gelly Hi-Shines and the "Textured" nail paints. You really can't go wrong with these, there's a colour for everyone and they're insanely affordable!


So those are all my favourite "Drugstore" gems. I think that sometimes if you look you can always find high quality products for a not so high price! There are so many more "Drugstore" products that I love and use all the time. So if you like I can always do a second post like this showing you some more of my favourites! Let me know if this is something you would like!

    I recently did a post about what i got for the 3 for 2 across all high street products at boots! ( how could you go wrong?)
    Anyway, two of my three things were Rimmel! The other was Maybeline.

  17. I want the real techniques brushes so badly but I cannot find them ANYWHERE here in Italy, and Ulta won't ship to me. :( I would pretty much kill for some of these brushes!
