New Drugstore Make-up Purchases

My blog posts have been a bit random recently, but today I wanted to talk about beauty, specifically some new make-up bits that I've found in the drugstore recently.

Bourjois Air Mat Foundation: Matte foundations are definitely the face products I reach for the most as my skin can get quite shiny throughout the day. As I love Bourjois, when I saw this new release I just had to give it a go. I chose the lightest shade which is pretty much spot on for me, and I really like the formula too. It takes a bit of blending in, but once applied it stays in place for ages. If you're a fan of the matte finish like me, I'd definitely recommend this product!

Seventeen Stay Time Concealer: I've actually repurchased this concealer recently as I absolutely love it. I don't usually buy from Seventeen but I'm definitely tempted to try more from them after liking this concealer so much. It's the perfect concealer for under the eyes and on blemishes and gives a good amount of coverage.

NYX Butter Gloss: I was super excited to see that Boots now stock NYX, and this was the first product that I've ever bought from them. I've used it a couple of times and so far I really like it - the formulation is very creamy and glossy. The shade I got is a pastel pink which I think is perfect for summer. 

NYX Micro Brow Pencil: After using Soap & Glory brow products for ages, I wanted to try something a bit different and so decided to pick up one from NYX. I chose the shade Ash Brown, which is slightly darker than the brown pencil from Soap & Glory but very similar in consistency and how it applies. At £7 it's also cheaper so I might end up switching to this one now!

Rimmel Wake Me Up Mascara: I needed to pick up a new mascara and wanted an affordable one, so I decided to buy this one from Rimmel. I've never used a Rimmel mascara before, and so far I quite like it but probably not as much as my usual ones. The brush is a different shape, but also I find it doesn't do a lot for my lashes in terms of lengthening them. I'm going to let it dry out a bit first and see if I like it more then, but for now I probably wouldn't repurchase it.

What have you picked up from the drugstore recently?


  1. You should definietly try NYX's soft matte lip cream, it's so great!

    1. Ooh I will, I've heard good things about them! x

  2. I swear by Seventeen's Stay Time concealer, I've lost count of how many tubes I've bought! I really wanted to try Bourjoi's Air Matte foundation, but when I swatched it in Boots even the palest shade was too dark for me which is a shame.
