Drugstore Make Up Tag!

Hi Everyone,

Ive seen this tag a lot round YouTube and thought id give it a go, it was a lot more difficult than I expected, turns out I don't have as many Drugstore Products as I thought, but I got there in the end and this was the result...

 1. What is your favourite drugstore makeup brand overall?
Rimmel - I was debating between Rimmel and Revlon, But Rimmel had to win just slightly in the end, My favourite thing by Rimmel has to be there Foundations, I love the Match Perfection Foundation and The Wake Me Up foundation (Ive been through a few bottles), Then the newly Released Apocalips are a new favourite, Combined with the very popular lipsticks I keep meaning to pick some up from the Kate Moss range soon.

2. What are your favourite face, cheek and lip products?
Face - My favourite Face product must be the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer, Its such a brilliant product for such a little price tag (£4.99), Its got amazing coverage and lasts quite well on my skin, A firm favourite.
Cheek - This Blush by Revlon scared me a bit when I first saw it, it was just so bright, but it comes out as such a natural flushed colour and isn't too bright for my off white skin tone either, you don't need to use a lot, so this tub should last quite a while and Ive used it loads. (£7.99 for I'm not sure how much product sorry)
Lip - Revlon Lip Butters, These caused quite a stir in the beauty world last year and I can see why, these have been a firm favourite ever since they were released, they're so pigmented yet moisturising on the lips, an they last quite well, another great product from Revlon. (£7.99)

3. Least favourite product?

It has to be the Bourjois Blusher Pots, I fell in love with the packaging and that's about it, they just have no pigment, or very little at least, I just don't get on with them very well sadly.

4. What is the best makeup bargain?
MUA Single Eye Shadows, They are amazing for only £1!! Plus in 30 different shades, The 3 below have to be my favourites, I must admit the Matte Shades in the range aren't as pigmented as the Pearl ones, But saying that my most used one is Matte! My favourites are shades 17, 24 and 28.

5. What is your favourite underdog product? (Something you love that often gets overlooked?)
It has to be Barry M Lip gloss Wands, I do have a lot of Limited edition ones, But my all time favourite has to be 11 Coral (far left) They aren't sticky and last well on the lips and they're a good price too at £4.49!

6. A drugstore product that is overpriced?
It has to be the Bourjois Foundations, I know they're raved about and they are good but I just don't think they're worth the £10-£12 price tag when you can get a better foundation by Rimmel for £8!

7. Show your best drugstore dupe(s)!
This has to be Revlon Lip Butter in Lollipop Vs MAC Girl about Town, I did think that the new Apocalips in Apocaliptic was a close match, bu it is just slightly darker than Girl about Town (plus I'm not sure why its showing up Red here).
(Left to Right; Revlon Lip Butter in Lollipop, MAC Girl about Town, Rimmel Apocalips in Apocaliptic)

8. Drugstore product that isn't worth the hype?
I must admit this isn't one of the big products with lots of hype, But the Plumping lip glosses do get talked a bit about in the beauty world, but its the best I could find out of my collection, I just find these way too sticky and the smell just makes me feel sick, Now I am a massive Soap and Glory fan so I am quite disappointed about this one.

Id love to see if you've done this tag, If not I Tag you to have a go!
So what do you think of the products Ive mentioned?
What are your favourites?
