The Makeup Post | Drugstore beauty

Okay, so rather than doing an essay, which was truthfully stressing me out, I decided to go to the metro centre for a little browse/shop. Yes, I really do have my priorities right don't I, haha. For quite a while now I have been wanting to broaden my makeup collection and experiment with it. However, I am not planning on buying the higher end brands straight away, but I will definitely be considering it when my makeup skills improve (and I get over how expensive everything is lol). Plus, why bother when usually drugstore makeup is great for the price?!

Revolution Blush Palette Hot Spice - £6
Rimmel Match Perfection (091) - £5
Rimmel Kate Moss Lipstick (107;01;28) - £5.69
Collection Eyebrow Kit - (around) £4
Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer (1) - (around) £4
Collection Bronze Glow (light) - (around) £2

As you can see by the prices everything is so affordable - especially the blush pallete, which I am yet to try but it looks fabulous! - I'm just enjoying looking at it, haha! The best thing is that it comes with 8 different shades which will be great to just try out, even if they are naff its not much money wasted! - I will let you know how that goes :) 

For me, my favourites out of everything I bought has got to be the Concealer and the Kate Moss 107 lipstick. I have been using the concealer to cover the black circles under my eyes and it has just worked wonders! I will be re-purchasing this in a darker shade to cover up blemishes on my face. The lipstick is a wonderful red/purple shade and I think it really compliments my skin tone. I think if I were to add some lipliner when using it that it will stay perfect all day long! 

I have tried both the Kate Moss 01 (red nose red) lipstick and the 28, and they are both just lovely. Nice and easy to apply and you are not always re-applying it throughout the day which is always a bonus! I would recommend the Rimmel Kate Moss collection to everyone, I will definitely be back to purchase more in different colours! 

I have never been the one to fill in their eyebrows so I thought I'd start out softly before plunging into some new extreme territory by buying this lovely eyesbrow kit. The overall finish is lovely, and I have been blending the 2 lighter colours to achieve a nice and natural finish. 

I won't talk much about the Rimmel Match Perfection foundation as this was a re-purchase. I opted to buy a lighter shade than the one I already had as it was becoming too dark for my complexion. I really like the feel of this foundation, its not too heavy and overall it has a nice coverage. Personally I don't wear powder, but I am going to invest in some to see how this goes over my foundation. 

What are your latest beauty recommendations?
