Hello my lovely readers πŸ™‚ How’s everything going?

Today I’m going to review some of the make up products I’ve bought in the past months. Most of these products are from the drugstore so if you like them, you don’t have to spend a lot of money to try them.

Glow and care nail polish-Essence

Lately I’ve been loving nude nail polish, I think it looks very elegant on your nails. I specially love thisΒ EssenceΒ nail polish because it doesn’t only paint your nails, but it also takes care of them at the same time. The price of this nail polish is around 2€.

Dermablend concealer-Vichy

I actually try this product because my mum bought it. This concealer has a really high coverage, it’s perfect if you hide a spot or you want to completely cover your black circles. Since it’s really high coverage it can be a bit dry for my under eyes on an everyday basis. Nevertheless it’s one of the best concealers I’ve tried. The price of this concealer is 15€ and I got it in the lightest shade which is opal 15.

Face palette-KIKO

I’ve never own a face palette before but I though it’s going to come really handy for travelling and it was in an offer for only 4€. The bronzer and make up shade are lovely and really easy to blend. The only thing that I don’t love about this palette is that I feel like the highlighter is too dark, nevertheless it looks really nice as a golden eye shadow.

Creamy Lipstick-Cien

As you know I love Cien products. I think for their price point it has good quality products. I’ve recently started trying their lipsticks and I’m loving them, they are super creamy and moisturising. I actually have all their lipstick colours, but the ones I’m loving the most are the lighter colours, since they are so creamy the darker ones require touch up. My favourite colour is “nude brown”. The price of this lipstick is only 2€.

Avene water-Deliplus

Lately I’ve been adding an extra step to my make up, which is to spray avene water to my skin after applying the setting powder, bronzer and blusher. This step makes the makeup look more natural and less powdery, but it also helps to set a your make up. The one I use is from Deliplus and it was 3€, but many other brands make them.

Beauty sponge – Miomare

I decided to give this sponge a go because I needed a new one, and I’ve been pleasantly surprised. The one I owned before was also a beauty blender dupe but it was a bit hard. This one once it’s dumped it’s really soft and blends the make up nicely. To find a nice beauty sponge you must make sure it’s soft. This brand is from Lidl and it was around 2 or 3€.

What make up products have you been loving? Do you usually buy drug store or high end make up?

  4. I went through that high end phase thinking of it were in a high end store and cost a good penny, you’d be better off. Not so. I worked for a major drug store chain for about 5 years and learned so much. A lot of the high end products are actually made by recognizable if you go to your local drug store and were told who makes certain products. For example, did you know Vichy was owned by L’OrΓ©al? Check out ingredients sometime and compare the patented ingredient. You will find Lorael and Vichy cN both use that ingredient. Thanks for the post.

  5. Vichy skincare is amazing also. Honestly I’ve been taking care of my skin for many years. My skins condition was always pretty good then I had to
    Take courses to learn all about Vichy products then of course, when the class was over, we all left with a bagful of their products

  7. Nail polish one is definitely a good catch! I’ve been buying the Essence nail polish for quite some time now, just because I love all of the nice colors and limited editions, and in combination with the good price it’s a must have in your beauty items πŸ™‚ Great post on the other products as well, especially the sponge!

  9. I thought about buying Vichy products for a while but I only got a cream from them a year ago and I didn’t hate it but it wasn’t a must buy. I think I’ll try the concealer after reading this thank you ❀️
