THE BEAUTY EDIT: BACK TO SCHOOL/DRUGSTORE PICKS

15 September 2015

With university starting soon this month - which means today I will be flying back to the UK, it would only mean that there will be budget cuts for students, saving up for groceries, rental payments, budget shopping etc. but also for those who are looking for drugstore makeup to save on a lot of money, I have decided to put on a post about getting the makeup - all drugstore.

I apologise for yet another delay of this post, but I forgot to schedule it and while I'm typing this post away and make some amendments to any grammatical errors, I'm currently transiting in Singapore and I guess you could say that I have to endure another 13 hours for a long haul flight tonight. Ah well.

REAL TECHNIQUES DUO-FIBRE BRUSHES

I'm in love with Real Techniques makeup brushes they're just so affordable and yet they work extremely well. My recent finds were the duo-fibre set that I've purchased early this year, and I can't seem to let go of them because they're super soft!

L'OREAL COLOR RICHE LIPSTICK IN 376 CASSIS PASSION

I really love this lipstick because it's so creamy and rich in texture and it's not a matte one but not a very glossy one as well, I've been using it the past year and I think it's fantastic for autumn and spring. It's a rosy pink shade with shiny hues but it glides on to the lips smoothly.

L'OREAL COLLECTION SIGNATURE RED BY BLAKE LIVELY LIPSTICK

I've mentioned this lipstick back in May because it's such a bold, bright red that is so gorgeous, while you can see how beautiful it is on Blake Lively herself (though she's already the bomb!); this lipstick is bold and bright but brings out the contrast with your makeup and your skintone.

SEVENTEEN VA VA VOOM WATERPROOF MASCARA

An affordable and waterproof mascara, don't think I can say more about this. It's very thick in texture, though it takes a while to dry up, it's pretty volumising and lengthening while being waterproof, it's an all-in-one and affordable mascara.

MAYBELLINE BROW DRAMA SCULPTING BROW STICK IN DARK BROWN

I've been talking about this brow mascara for a long time and I find it's the dupe of the Benefit Gimme Brow, though the texture isn't as thick compared to the Benefit one, it combs up your brow hairs and makes them stay in place while filling up the gaps that may appear.

MAYBELLINE HYPER SHARP WATERPROOF LINER

I'm not sure why this eyeliner isn't available anywhere yet but in Asia, I'm assuming it will be a new release soon. It's basically like the Kat Von D eyeliner and the Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Liner, it's the affordable dupe that works just the same. The felt tip is thin so you can draw your feline flick easily and gorgeously!

MAYBELLINE INSTANT ANTI-AGE ERASER EYE CONCEALER

Oh my my my, how I love this concealer! It does wonders under my eyes whenever they look puffy in the morning and a few dabs and blending in, I look like I've been fully awake! The texture isn't thick but creamy and doesn't really budge anywhere. Sometimes I use it on my blemish scars when I wanted full coverage on my skin.

MAYBELLINE FALSIES BIG EYE WATERPROOF MASCARA

Another amazing waterproof mascara, it's the same as the Seventeen Waterproof Mascara; but the best thing about this affordable mascara is that it contains both ends for your upper and lower lashes, which is an amazing idea, and affordable!

TONI & GUY CLASSIC SHINE GLOSS SERUM

I love hair serums because they kind of protect and moisturise your hair and Toni & Guy have been doing a great job for the cheaper alternative, especially with their dry shampoo, it's just a dream to apply this hair serum on to my hair and the standards of gorgeous, healthy hair can be expected and achieved.
