Becoming Beauty Guest Post | Drugstore Favourites

*And Superdrug...

Hello! My name's Lauren and I chat about beauty on Becoming Beauty and today I'll be taking over Amie's blog to talk about one of my favourite subjects - bargain makeup! I personally can't afford to be spending £25 on a lipstick too often (seriously how do some people do it?!) so I do love finding a great product that doesn't cost the earth.

In Summer I like to keep my base quite light; reaching for 17's BB cream on 'no make-up' days. Although it doesn't last as long as I'd like, I prefer the coverage of this to some of my more expensive lighter bases and it is such a bargain I don't mind reapplying. To improve the texture of the skin, 17;s Photo Flawless primer is worth a try - although it's silicone base, I prefer it to many of my high end primers for finish. Two totally underrated base products in the beauty world if you ask me. When I get oily, I like to use a bit of the Revlon Nearly Naked Powder. It doesn't look at all cakey and it comes with a nice big mirror and a sponge for on the go. 

Moving onto cheeks, I'm currently obsessed with the new Bourjois cream blushes. They seem to last well on my skin and look totally natural as they blend so easily. I just wish there was more shades available! If I fancy a powder, I really like the Fashionista palettes, I have the shades Juicy Apricot and Butterscotch. I also have a bronzer and highlighter for if I'm going away. 

For eyes there's only one thing that has wowed me in a long time- the Maybelline Colour Tattoo eye shadow in On and On Bronze. I know, I know, everyone and their dog loves this but with good cause. The shade is perfect for any skin tone and the formula is lovely - particularly in summer when your eyelids can get a tad oily.

Finally, for lips you can't tear me away from my Revlon Lip Butters. I now have 4 vibrant shades and I don't leave home without one in my bag. Although they melt in the sun (which can get super messy) the shades are so smooth and pigmented they're almost foolproof.

There we go; my favourite budget products for summer! What do you recommend from the High street? If you've got any hidden gems let me know!

Thank you Lauren for such a lovely post on drugstore makeup! I'm a huge fan of Revlon Lip butters and the Bourjois Cream Blushers - I would highly recommend them too. Please do go check out her blog Becoming Beauty!

  7. Great guest post, Lauren! Everything looks great - definitely things I would like to have as well.

  8. I love the lip butters. They're so much more pigmented than I thought they were, before I tired them. And I'll definitely be picking up that Revlon powder soon!
