So, as you are all aware, I am a massive lover of Drugstore makeup and so I am here to show you my favourites from each brand and what I feel like the brand is best for! I am also doing a blog post on drugstore makeup each day this week! So get excited!
B || Makeup Brushes
B is Superdrug’s own brand, and let me tell you, while I haven’t tried their makeup, their makeup brushes are AMAZING. They’re a little bit cheaper than Real Techniques (at £7.99-£9.99) they are equally as stunning! Plus their brush cleanser is also amazing!
Barry M || Nail Polish (Gelly Hi Shine)
Barry M for me is the creme de la creme of nail polishes! This brand just has it down. Each of their ranges are amazing! My favourites of all time are the Jelly Hi Shine Nail Polishes, closely followed by the Aquarium Collection. Their Matte Top Coat is also a must try! Stunning, and super affordable (£2.99-£4.99). I have four reviews up about their nail paints.

Bourjois || Rouge Edition Liquid Lipsticks
Now these come in a few different ranges (of Mattes, Hi Shine, Semi Matte, Sheer Matte, Sheer Gloss, etc. etc.). But I feel like they are so comfortable and beautiful on the lips and I love them a lot. Bourjois also do some amazing powders (pressed and loose)
Collection || Lasting Perfection Concealer
I have tried many concealers, but none match up to this. It’s £4.19 and it’s stunning! Real collection also have some eyeshadow palettes that are also pretty stunning!
L’Oreal || Master Sculpt Mascara
To be honest the entire sculpt range is beautiful (mascara, foundation, contour kit, lip sticks). But I love this mascara for quick volume.
Makeup Revolution || Eyeshadow Palettes
These are absolutely beautiful! Considering they’re £8 and come with 32 shades thats amazing. Some of the shades are a little bit of a miss, but most of them (about 25) are beautifully pigmented, blendable and I actually think better than Mac… dare I say it.
Max Factor || Face Finity Foundation
I literally couldn’t decide between the Primer and Foundation, as they’re both my favs! But, I went for the Foundation because it sort of has it’s own Primer built in, and has amazing coverage! A must try! Max Factor also have some lovely lipsticks that are really moisturising!
Maybelline || Dream Velvet Foundation/Lash Sensational Mascara
I literally couldn’t chose, Maybelline is BY FAR my favourite drugstore brand, they just get everything SO right! There is a blog post about my favourite items from them coming tomorrow, so keep your eyes peeled!
Models Own || Eyeshadow
While I love their Nail Polishes for how fast they dry, and their cool shade range, they chip quite quickly on me, so I went for their eyeshadow palettes. Now these are very buttery eyeshadow palettes that are actually really blendable and I do like them a lot!
MUA || Undress Your Skin Highlighter
This is amazing as a face highlighter, and eyeshadow, a brow highlight, it blends really nicely, it’s really pigmented, and it’s £3!!!
No.7 || Lips
Their Lip Crayons and lipsticks are beautiful, hydrating and comfortable. And their colour match service connects you with shades that will suit you! Which is awesome!
Real Techniques || Eyeshadow Blending Brush
To be honest any of their brushes are amazing! And I really want to try their beauty blender, and if this was a month ago I would have said their buffing brush, but this eyeshadow brush has changed my eyeshadow life and I love it!
Revlon || Ultra HD Matte Lipstick
These are absolutely stunning, a fairly limited colour range at the moment, but they keep adding to them, and they’re beautiful, not too drying, and have a lovely matte finish.
Rimmel || Kate Moss Lipsticks
Probably my second favourite drugstore range, however it wasn’t difficult to think of my favourite products from this brand. These lipsticks are to die for! I have two reviews up about these). Just beautiful lipsticks, if you haven’t tried them, do!

Sleek || Blush
To be honest I feel like I should have said their highlighter palette, but I’d forgotten about it when writing this post… whoops… but their Blushes are also beautiful. Very pigmented, blendable blushes in a great range of shades and beautiful packaging. I love Sleek packaging, it feels so luxury.
Soap And Glory || Supercat Eyeliner
This was was really got me into winged eyeliner, and it’s what I have loved ever since. I have repurchased this an unbelievable amount of times. It’s beautiful, so black, so easy to use, and you should definitely try it!
I hope you enjoy this and look forward to a week full of Drugstore Makeup Posts! Let me know down below your favourites from these brands!

I know they’re incredible brushes for their price!
I’ve always wanted to try Barry M nail polishes and I only wish they were available in NZ haha! The reviews and swatches I’ve seen of their polishes just look amazing 🙂
They are. If you can get hold of them at some point. Do!
