Drugstore Favourites

Pharmacies and drugstores in Australia are amazing. I am a member of a few pharmacies and I receive emails every other day about different deals and promotions. I have become addicted to these sales and have actually started buying and trying more drugstore cosmetics and products. I am always in search of good products for everyday office wear as without makeup I look like a tired zombie! Also, I need constant replenishment of these products because of daily use, so options that are not really heavy on the pocket are ideal.

Here are some of my current favourites and must-haves from drugstores!

Revlon Matte Balm 

The only reason I like these balms is that they stay on the whole day. I am a MAC user but MAC is gone with my first cup of coffee. I got it at 50% off when there was a Revlon sales day in Priceline. My favourite shade is 225, Sultry, which is bright pinkish. I prefer using a bright colour for my sleepy morning face. Best thing is that with this balm, I do not need to refresh my lipstick during the whole day! Provided I eat my lunch in a civilized way! I also love the size and packaging. 

Revlon Colorstay Skinny Liquid Liner 
Eyeliner is my most important makeup item and I am used to of using a liquid eyeliner. For me, a perfect eyeliner is matte and jet black and stays black all day. I have tried some in the past that turned greyish. I have also tried some that made my eyelids feel heavy and while some caused itchiness after a long day. I do not face any of these issues with Revlon Colorstay. It is light and gives me the desired clean black thin line. It looks and stays fresh all day long. It comes off easily with a makeup remover without having to chafe my eyelids! 

Colour I use: Blackout

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind

Someone like me with chronic panda eyes, this is a great product. It is rightly called an 'eraser for dark circles'! I use it every single day. I do put a layer of colour corrector before applying it as I have really dark circles. I think I have given this information twice in one paragraph! It brightens up the face and lasts almost the whole day. When it wears off, people at work stop talking to me! I love the packaging, size and ease of use. I never use extra or less but just the perfect amount every single time. 

Shade I use: Medium Moyen 

NYX Wonder Stick

I bought NYX Wonder Stick when I was trying 
to learn (still trying) to contour. I did not want to invest in a pricey product that might just go waste. This became a favourite in no time and has been a great friend since then. It is light and easy to handle. Comes with both highlight and contour options. I do not use it daily because I like to use those five minutes to snooze a little longer. But, I use it to contour whenever I need to.  

Shade I use: WS04 

Now, I am on the lookout for the perfect mascara and facewash. Anxiously waiting for the next sale!  

Tell me, what are your favourite drugstore products?

  1. The concealer is the best no doubt. Good selection. Should have your photograph too with all this.
