DRUGSTORE WEEK - FAVOURITE FOUNDATIONS & CONCEALERS

I often blog a lot about high-end makeup, because really, it’s what I use most frequently, but there are a few highstreet bits that I absolutely love and I’ll be sharing them with you throughout this week. Yeap, I am dedicating this week to drugstore makeup and to kick things off I wanted to start with base essentials. There are two staple pieces missing in this post because I left them at my parents last time I went to London, but I will also be talking about them in this post.

My absolute favourite drugstore base is the Revlon Nearly Naked foundation. This to me is the closest foundation I’ve found to the YSL Touche Éclat. It’s very creamy, leaves a gorgeous glow and offers a medium coverage that feels super light on the skin. I always pick up the shade True Beige during the summer as it’s a perfect match for me when I get a tan. The only downside is the packaging, I wish it came with a pump as it can get quite messy.

Another favourite of mine is the L’oreal Lumi Magique Light Infusing Foundation. This is perfect for no makeup, makeup days, it’s very lightweight so it’s almost undetectable on the skin. It’s also very radiant and hydrating making it the perfect match for someone with dry, dull skin like myself. I am also a massive fan of their True Match foundation but like I mentioned in the beginning of this post, I left it in London. True Match has a slightly more heavier coverage, but still looks natural. Many people say it's the perfect dupe for the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk foundation, and I definitely agree!

Last but not least on the foundation topic, my newest acquisition, the L’oreal Nude Magique Cushion. Like I mentioned in my July Favourites post, I didn’t expect to like it as much as I do. I thought it would be faffy to work it, but actually it’s so easy to apply. I like to use my beauty blender instead of the sponge that comes with it, and this covers any redness or imperfections that I want to conceal whilst looking natural and giving me a healthy glow. It feels quite wet at first but it dries down after a couple of minutes. I only wish I had gotten one shade darker as this is slightly too light for me. 

Now moving on to concealers, the Rimmel Wake Me Up concealer just had to be here. It’s a perfect colour for me, it brightens underneath my eyes and hides my dark circles really well. I also really like the applicator because it’s of how convenient and easy it is to use. Another favourite that I definitely need to mention is the Maybelline Eraser Eye concealer. Omg, how amazing is it?! Even my mum is hooked! The texture is so creamy and I actually really like the applicator, at first I thought I would hate it and that it would be very unhygienic, but I haven’t had any issues with it, in fact, it feels really soft and refreshing to run underneath the eyes. 

What are you favourite drugstore base essentials?

  8. I'm also a big fan of the Maybelline Age Rewind concealer and L'Oreal True Match foundation. I love the sound of the Lumi Magique foundation but it's probably too dewy for my combination skin. x

  14. This post will be very useful to me as I am planning on trying some new make-up... And what most bothers me is the perfect base which won't make my skin look dry, but will hydrate it and give it a natural look :) I might try Loreal Lumi Magique if it's true that it's similar to Giorgio Armani's foundation.
