.anything two-wheels, travel, food, beauty, fashion and my personal musings.
Hello, Everybody! I’m finally back from my holiday and I thought this would be fun to do. This is way, way overdue but I decided to do a tag post today.
Thanks to Rae of Scatterbraintures for the ‘I LOVE DRUGSTORE MAKEUP’ tag! Sorry this post is so late, hun!
1. What is your favorite drugstore makeup brand overall?
Needless to say, those who read my blog regularly, probably already know I think Bourjois cosmetics are pretty great for the price – especially their face and lip products. So, my favourite drugstore brand would have to be Bourjois especially since their latest releases like the Rouge Edition Velvet Lipsticks and their CC Cream are just fab.
For foundations, my go-to would be Revlon’s ColorStay products.
2. What are your favorite face, cheek and lip products?
My favourite face product is the Ben Nye powder but that’s not quite drugstore. A drugstore alternative for me would possibly be the Bourjois Loose Powder. It is finely-milled and lightly scented (smells lovely to me) and sets my makeup perfectly. Only thing is because it’s a loose powder, it’s not great for travelling with. Other than that, I am in love with it!
I’m currently enjoying the Flower Cream blush (review to come).
Lips: I love Bite Beauty products but the drug store equivalent (not in texture though) would be the (again) Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipsticks. You must already hate how much I love Bourjois makeup or at least, how I keep going on about their Rouge Edition Velvet Lipsticks.
Wet ‘N Wild Megalast definitely top my favorite matte lipsticks but I’m dying to try out Milani and Rimmel lippies though.
3. Least favourite product?
It’s gotta be Korean BB creams – sorry, I know this is a popular choice amongst most Asian beauty bloggers but somehow, these products aren’t suited for my medium/tanned skin tone AND somehow I think Korean BB Creams aren’t suited for our tropical climate and I find most of these BB creams to be too thick for our humid weather! But hey, that’s just me.
4. What is the best makeup bargain?
Has got to be my haul of Bourjois products at Metro when they were offering 20% storewide + additional 20% off for selected brands.
5. What is your favourite underdog product? (Something you love that often gets overlooked?)
My Korean brow mascara that only cost me S$3.50. I have pretty dark-coloured brows and this helps lighten it so I don’t look so scary or appear to have drawn-on brows.
Or, the CLIO automatic eyeliner – No fuss with sharpeners, plus it’s so creamy to apply and doesn’t budge once it sets. Major love.
6. A drugstore product that is overpriced?
It has got to be the Maybelline Dream Matte Powder. Whilst I love it, I think it’s a little too much to pay for compact powder. But hey, that’s just what I feel.
If you would like me to review any of the products mentioned here (that I haven’t reviewed) please leave me a comment and I’ll be happy to post a review about it. Thanks for reading, once again.
