Makeup Haul- Drugstore


The drugstore seems to be upping its game lately and i have been on a makeup buying ban. I somehow seem to enter the drugstore and come out with a big dent in my bank account, this being said, I always seem to come out with a smile on my face too. As I have not bought anything lately, I am a tad behind with the new releases and thought it was time to update my makeup collection.

First of all I purchased the brand new foundation from Rimmel. Drugstore makeup brands seem to have been lacking in new foundations lately so as soon as I set my eyes on this, I definitely had to put it to the test. This foundation is named 'Fresher Skin' and claims to let skin breathe and to not clog pores which sounds amazing to me. The only issue which I considered when buying this was that it was going to have no coverage at all. A quality in a foundation which I look for is to have atleast medium coverage! I have wore this foundation a good 5 or 6 times now and I feel as if I can firmly say that it is a lovely foundation. Surprisingly, it gives a medium coverage and feels so light on the skin. I have wore this all day for each day I have wore it and it has lasted for the majority of the day without coming off in patches like most. 

The next product was the Bourjois, Radiance Reveal concealer. I originally purchased this as a temporary replacement of the Urban Decay Naked Skin concealer. I had heard amazing reviews on this product a while ago but I could never seem to find my shade (obviously being the lightest possible one). After months of waiting, Superdrug had finally stocked them. This concealer is medium to high coverage which is perfect as i have the worst dark circles under my eyes. The creamy consistency of this makes it so easy to blend out and I will honestly repurchase this now over high end concealers.

In all honestly, I bought the L'Oreal infallible sculpt thinking it was a powder contour but I've later found out that the powder version is only available in America! I already have a cream contour which is from the brand Iconic London. Although I love this contour, I find it time consuming and always reach to a powder contour for the convenience. I find that the L'Oreal contour is a lovely shade but does not blend out as well as I would like and I find that I have to put a lot of work in to it when applying it.

Finally I purchased the NYX soft matte lip cream in the shade London. I have used the lingerie liquid lipstick by NYX before and absolutely love how it looks and feels. I also found that it lasted for an amazing length of time. I had heard amazing things about the original soft matte lip creams so thought it was about time i purchased one. I love the colour of this lipstick and the colour range in general. Another thing I love is the texture of them because they are just so creamy and moisturising. As they are so creamy, they do not last as long as the lingerie liquid lips which is something I really look for in a lipstick so if you're going for a meal or something along those lines then I would not recommend it.
