Revlon Foundation Stick 

DISCLAIMER: This is not me being horrible towards Revlon at all. I do enjoy products from the brand and will more than likely purchase more, just not this foundation. It simply didn’t work for my skin and I didn’t like it. 

I don’t enjoy slating products at all, especially when I do enjoy other products from the brand. However, the Revlon Foundation Stick was the most disappointing foundation I have ever used. I’m combination skin between dry/oily which I’m fine with and I generally control it quite well but this foundation literally did nothing, it didn’t even stay on for more than 2 hours and sometimes less. 

Regardless of whether I used a primer, moisturiser or whatever, it doesn’t bloody stay on. I got it from Superdrug in the 3 for 2 deal but it’s normal price is £9.99 and it’s not worth it at all. It isn’t even worth the 3 for 2 deal and it was a free product! 

Within 2 hours it literally looked like I hadn’t applied anything. The texture felt awful and just didn’t ever set. No products would stick to it at all. So, overall rubbish product.

Favourite Drugstore Brands

Hi guys! 

Today we’re talking about some of my favourite drugstore brands. The drugstore have some amazing brands to offer these days and some that I will forever go back to more than I would with high end products. The variety they have to offer is outstanding and drugstore brands are really trying to bring out an affordable priced product with high end formulas and I’ve found some brands do really well with this. So, keep reading to find out my favourite drugstore brands and why I love them. 

Number 1: Revlon

I’ve been using revlon products for around a year now and I’ve definitely found some killer products that are brilliant and can definitely be mistaken for high end products. The variety of makeup Revlon offer is outstanding and the formula’s are brilliant. Admittedly, as with most brands they do have some hit and misses but overall I genuinely recommend Revlon. My favourite Revlon products is the Colourstay foundation and the Photoready powder. The Colourstay foundation at one stage was the only foundation I would ever use, it’s got such a high coverage and it glides on perfectly. Generally I use my beauty sponge to buff it in and it leaves such a flawless base and they also have a large variety of colour selection to choose from. The Photoready powder is another win for me, it’s fantastic. I’ve not been using this for as long as the foundation but it’s become a must have product for me. I couldn’t live without it. It sits on my face perfectly and doesn’t cake up at all, it’s so lightweight and feels so soft. It also sets my undereye area so well that it doesn’t crease at all throughout the day. 

Number 2: Rimmel 

Rimmel have been a long time love of mine. I bought my first ever makeup product from Rimmel and have loved them ever since. My first foundation was the Wake Me Up foundation and I often go back to it, I’ve been wearing makeup for around 5 years now and this foundation has been one I always return to. However, this is not why I love them. Rimmel is super affordable and the selection has definitely expanded brilliantly. My favourite products from the range are the Kate Moss lipsticks, their beautiful creamy formula, for me is the best in the drugstore and I always head to their range to look for new lipsticks. They last all day and don’t bleed at all, my favourite colours are the 107 for the Autumn/Winter season and 38 for the Spring/Summer season. I’ve never been a fan of their eyeshadow selections at all and some of their mascaras really don’t do it for me but their nail varnishes are also brilliant and as I said above, their foundations really are brilliant quality for such an affordable price. They’re the ideal first foundation for any person new to makeup.

Number 3: Bourjois 

Bourjois have been a recent new love of mine, having been curious to test their products out I finally done it at the end of 2016 and I will never look back. I’ve not tried out everything that I would like to with this brand but I’ve definitely found some amazing products whilst using them. My favourite, go to product from Bourjois is the Radiance Concealer which was my first ever product from them and my go to concealer. It’s amazing, the coverage is outstanding but the best thing is that it’s so brightening under the eyes and super longwearing. I use it to highlight my under eye area, bridge of my nose, chin, cupid’s bow and centre of my forehead and it leaves such an amazing glow to the face. I also love the Black Kohl eyeliner, it’s so good and so easy to blend. It’s actually my favourite pencil liner that I’ve ever used. It’s really longwearing and doesn’t run throughout the day at all. I love to line my upper waterline with this and run it along my lash line and blend it out to create a smokey look.

Number 4: Revolution

If i’m ever looking for a new eyeshadow palette from the drugstore, I always head straight to the revolution stand in Superdrug. They’re the best in the drugstore and are ideal for makeup beginners. They offer such affordable dupes of high end palettes like the Kat Von D Shade and Light palette, as well as the Urban Decay Naked palettes. They’re fantastic, so blendable and buildable. Really buttery and smooth on the eyelid. I love them. I also think the Iconic Lights and Contour Pro palette is outstanding and an excellent dupe for the Nyx contour palette. For £8 an identical dupe to the nyx palette for such a great price. Their contour shades are my go to and I think they’re fantastic for all skin tones.

My Favourite Drugstore Foundations

Foundations are a product that I am always on the lookout for as they are the product that I run out of the fastest, next to concealer. I love testing new foundations out and recommending them to other people and I especially love to find some really affordable and amazing foundations. I do find that I’m always happy to pay extra for high end foundations as I like to recommend them to other people and give advice on whether they are actually worth spending the money on. For me, I’ve definitely got some go to products that I love and will forever use because they work so well for my skin type and they are actually quite affordable. I especially love some affordable foundations too, generally these are the ones I use the most. If you want to know more about my favourite drugstore foundations, keep reading. 

Number 1: The Revlon Colourstay foundation would definitely be going first. It’s outstanding and I can’t live without this foundation. It was sent from the foundation angels I just know it. It’s amazing, so lightweight and easy to blend, super comfortable on the skin and leaves such flawless and natural look. What more could you want?  I find that it’s so easy to apply contour and bronzer so well on as well. I use the the shade Ivory in the combination to oily selection, however they do offer the same shade in the normal to dry selection. I think it’s fantastic that they offer the foundation that is suited for different skin types. I get mine from Superdrug usually and it’s £12.99, admittedly it’s on the pricey side for a drugstore foundation and is probably one of the most expensive drugstore foundations I’ve come across but it’s so worth the money, check it out here

Number 2: Milani 2 in 1 Foundation is such a full coverage foundation and at an amazing price of £11, it’s feels so high end like you wouldn’t believe. I get mine from Beauty Bay in the shade creamy vanilla, check it out here.  It leaves such an amazing matte finish and I personally love to use this on those nights when I’m out and want to make that extra effort as it lasts for so long and continues to look amazing. It covers literally everything, from the biggest blemishes to super dark circles. I can’t rave about this enough and I even posted a review about this in December, take a look here for my full review. 

Number 3: L.A Girl Pro Coverage HD Foundation is my favourite foundation to create a dewy and illuminated look, it’s incredible for those days when you want to shine brighter than the sun. I get mine in the shade porcelain for £9 from Beauty Bay, check here.  It’s so glowy and blends so well, I will say that it does look wet when you first apply it but it dries into a gorgeous finish and lasts all day long with powdering. I’ve also written a blog post about this foundation too, take a look here

Number 4: The Rimmel Match Perfect foundation is my everyday wear product for a natural and basic look. It doesn’t break me out ever, it’s a medium coverage and can be buildable to a full coverage foundation and it lasts super long. However, I don’t recommend this foundation if you’re going to be taking pictures as it does leave flashback. Otherwise, it’s a basic and very natural foundation that I love to use for my everyday wear. I get mine from Superdrug for £7.99 in the shade light porcelain, look here for yours.
