Drugstore products worth the hype

You've probably heard me say it many a time but MAN is my skin oily. It only gets worse with stress, travel and warmer weather and there's been plenty of all those to go around in the last couple of weeks. I have in the past just relied on any old power and really caked it on over my foundation, but these days this method just isn't cutting it. I've also had a lot of sleepless, restless nights lately (clearly I need to stop stressing about work and get back into meditating again) so have developed a previously not present grey tinge to the under-eye area and am praying it'll go away!

Cue an old favourite of mine, Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in Translucent. A light dust of this stuff over make-up sets things and makes skin super matte without making you look like a ghost or getting cakey. For me it's a perfect between-pay-days alternative to slightly pricier drugstore brands like Bourjois, as this power only sets you back just under £4. It lasts about 3-4 hours before I have to top up, which is good for me as my skin usually eats up foundation and is better than anything else I've tried!!

I also went against my better judgement and purchased the concealer aaaaall the beauty bloggers ever have been talking about - the Maybelline Eraser Eye Concealer in Light. I hated the idea of the sponge applicator but oh my days is this stuff good. Brightening pigments, smooth, hassle free application that doesn't budge throughout the day and total coverage of those dark areas. This is a hero product for sure and at under £8 is well worth a go.




  1. Thanks for review. Haven't tried them yet.
