I figured that with the holidays coming near I could do some input on products I love that you might consider putting on your Christmas list or look into buying for yourself during one of the upcoming sales. Today I have a top 10 favorite products from the drugstore for you that I believe need…

Top 5 drugstore eyeshadow palettes

Today’s video is all about affordable eyeshadow palettes. I did this video last year too, but after having tried so many more palettes, my top 5 favorite drugstore eyeshadow palettes is due an update. Because boy has it changed! Only one palette that was on this list last year is still on it. So without…

Best drugstore lipstick formulas

It is no secret that I love a good lipstick. While my preference for most lipsticks goes to the more high end spectrum, I cannot deny that I love a good drugstore lipstick too. In terms of drugstore lipsticks there are a few brands whose formulas I have tried and love. From super budget brand…

Top 5 favorite drugstore eyeshadow palettes

For the first blog post going up as part of August Palette Month, I have a video talking my top 5 favorite eyeshadow palettes. I chose a variety from different drugstore brands that vary in colors as well as availability, but not in quality! These are some of my favorites as they have unique color…

Drugstore warm toned eyeshadow palettes

Today I am sharing with you 4 of my favorite warm toned eyeshadow palettes available at the drugstore. So far, I have been giving you my palette recommendations according to certain undertones of the colors in the palette for nearly a year. But none of those videos list many truly drugstore priced items. That is…

Top 5 drugstore blush

I love a good drugstore blush, but it’s been a while since I listed my very favorite picks. Of course I love my high end picks, but there are plenty more affordable options that I love too. And you could say I love these a little bit more as they are definitely a bit more…

Top 5 Bottom 5 | Drugstore

Continuing my Top 5 Bottom 5 series, today’s turn is for drugstore products. I love shopping for makeup at the drugstore, but it can be a bit hit or miss. So I figured it would be nice to talk you through 5 of my favorite products at the drugstore and 5 products that didn’t quite…

Top 5 Fair skin foundations at the drugstore

Foundation shades are a hot topic at the moment. While many high end brands have good or decent shade ranges, the drugstore is far behind when it comes to offering a good shade range. Both on the dark and light end of the spectrum you can really struggle finding a shade that is right for…

Top 5 Drugstore Concealers

Now that I have shown you my top 5 high end concealers, it only makes sense to also go over my top 5 versions from the drugstore. When it comes to drugstore concealers I have a little more experience than with high end. And to be honest: I love an affordable concealer and have a…

The best bang for your buck

Where I love me some higher end make up, I couldn’t go without my drugstore gems. They may be a touch harder to find, but when you do, they are there to stay. So I thought it would be good to show you some of those drugstore gems. These are the products that I think…

Favorite concealers

Time to show you my all time favorite concealers! This is a make up product I love trying out. More so than foundation if you’d believe that. And I especially like drugstore concealers, but just for good measure I threw in a few high end favorites as well. This is a list of favorites that…

Hema micellar water

It is no secret I love the Garnier micellar cleansing water. But when you find an even more affordable micellar water that works as good, then of course we have to talk about it on the blog. This version by Hema may not be widely available, but it’s a product this affordable brand does very…

Essence Superfine eyeliner pen

I am not much of an eyeliner buff. I go through phases where I wear it from time to time and when I do I usually use gel liner. Liquid liner is definitely not my forte so when I found the felt tip pen liners I was hoping it would be a lot easier. And…

Drugstore nail polish haul

Spring is around the corner and in the past few weeks I have found myself stocking up on some spring appropriate nail polishes. They are all drugstore brand polishes and range from as little as 2 euros a pop to 5.99. You will notice that I am favoring baby blues this time round as well…

Drugstore nail polish stash #2

The sharing of my nail polish collection continues. By now, we are at the end of our journey. All that’s left is the second half of my drugstore nail polish collection. And that means a bunch of random, miscellaneous brands. Some old, some new. Some more expensive, some cheap. Today i will be showing you…

Catrice Absolute Matt eyeshadow palette

Last week I showed you a massive drugstore make up shoplog. I asked what you’d like me to review first and many of you said the Catrice eyeshadow palette. And so here we are today with a review of this budget matte eyeshadow palette. Matte eyeshadows are hard to find in the drugstore and when…

My neutral drugstore lipsticks

Nude or neutral lips: not necessarily my cup of tea. Finding the perfect ‘my lips but better’ shade can be a pain and often I just think: what’s the point?! You could manage just fine with a layer of sheer lip balm to create a similar effect. Yet, because of this dilemma, I own quite…

New in: MUA, Bourjois, Miss Sporty

Since April, Dutch drugstore Kruidvat has been carrying UK makeup brand MUA. All beauty loving Dutchies rejoiced, until we found out not all stores would carry it. When we found out which stores did, it turned out that most of the stores carrying the brand were the not so logical places. Not a single drugstore…

Drugstore nail polish stash #1

A few months ago my Ebay nail wheels that I use to organize my nail polish collection ran out of space. So I ordered a new stack and decided to reorganize my nail polish swatches as my collection has changed quite a bit since the last time I showed it. In a way this is…

Bright lipsticks (drugstore)

In January I posted my red lipstick collection in two parts: drugstore and high end. Because so many people seemed to enjoy taking a look at my lipstick collection, I thought  it would be a good idea to show you some other ones as well. Since I’m loving bright lipstick for spring, I thought it…

Catrice eyebrow set

After a slight disappointment with the Catrice All Matt Plus foundation, I was ready for testing and talking about a super budgetproof product that has me do a happy dance every time I use it: the Catrice eyebrow set. This little product is the best. I bought an Anastasia powder in October, which I like,…

Catrice All Matt Plus foundation

The item in my budget make up shoplog I was most curious about, was the Catrice All Matt Plus foundation in 010 Light Beige. Since the end of last year I’ve been on a foundation trial kick. I already tried a Dior one and a L’Oreal one, but nothing super duper budget proof. I had…

Red lipstick collection (part 2 – drugstore)

After posting the first part of my red lipstick collection last week, I am bringing you part 2 today. You can read the first post, containing my high end red lipsticks, by clicking here. This second half consists of budgetproof drugstore options. So if you are looking for a cheap to mid range priced red…

New Catrice & Essence make up

YAY for working pictures! Because that means I can show you some of the new items Essence & Catrice added to their collection. In case you didn’t know: budget brands Essence & Catrice revamp their selection every 6 months. Old products are out and new ones are in. And it just so happened to be…

UK & Beautygloss party shoplog

On Monday you could read I attended the Beautygloss party and that I went to the UK on a study trip. Both occasion of course made excellent opportunities to shop for some beauty products. Here’s what I got from Boots, Superdrug, Primark, and the shops at the party. I went on a major lipstick binge!…
