Hope you are keeping nice and snug on this very wintery day. And if you can’t be snug, I hope something is doing a fab job at keeping you distracted from the cold. Speaking of distractions, here’s one for you right now…
Drugstore make-up. What is a drugstore to begin with? Well my fellow South Africans it sure isn’t what the name suggests. When I say drugstore what I’m really talking about are pharmacies that stock make-up such as the likes of a DisChem or Clicks. I’ve tried to break down the best offerings from each drugstore brand and this is what I got so far for part 1 of this series…
Mascara! Really they have some of the best formulas and wands. See specifically 2000 Calorie & False Lash Effect.
Eye shadow. The drugstore has never really produced eye shadows that have matched high end quality however L’oreal has some great quality dupes. I find this brand to be a bit too expensive for frivolous purchases from the drugstore, however their eye shadows I feel are worth it that price range. Also their True Match foundation is supposed to be the bees knees.
Nail polishes. I think some of their polishes kick high end polish’s asses.
Hypoallergenic make-up. Peeps with sensitive skin and eyes should take a look at their range. Specifically their mascaras which have an incredible formula. All lovely and thick.
It’s no secret that Maybelline has one of the widest and most reliable range of mascaras. I particularly am fond of their Colossal range of mascaras, specifically the 100% black one.
Brands you really can’t go wrong with: NYX, Catrice, LA Girl, Bourjois. Especially Catrice, I love everything I have picked up from them. And NYX is the all round queen of the drugstore. What make-up products have you been really, really, ridiculously impressed with from the drugstore?
