I love drugstore or high street make up... so I thought this tag is perfect for me. Unfortunately I realised that the majority of my make up collection is indeed from the drugstore, but not from the German drugstore. But I managed to find good products that are available in Germany. I'm sorry the video is in German but you can everything below :)
1. What is your favorite drugstore makeup brand?
I can't really decide. I love many things from different brands in the German drugstore, for example L'Oreal, Maybelline or Catrice. When I think of the British high street brands I love Rimmel London and Revlon.
2. What are your favorite face, cheek, eyes and lip products?
Face: L'Oreal Lumi Magique Concealer - perfect to highlight under your eyes or down your nose. Also a "dupe" for Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat concealer ;)
Cheeks: P2 Feel Good Blush "Innocent Rose" - very easy to blend, beautiful "every day" colour and good pigmented | Max Factor Miracle Touch Creamy Blush - super easy to blend the packaging is awful though
Eyes: Color Tattoo 24 HR "On and On Bronze" - perfect to use on its own or as a base | Catrice Absolute Nude Eyeshadow Palette - 6 shimmery brown / neutral colours. The pigmentation is good and they blend easy. Plus the palette was about 5€ -> bargain
Lips: L'Oreal Rouge Caresse "Tempting Lilac" - Your lips but better colour, it's very hydrating on the lips and easy to wear | Catrice Ultimate Colour "Matt-erial Girl" beautiful matt lip stick. Even though it's a matt lip stick it doesn't dry out the lips too bad. My favourite bold lip stick for Autumn and Winter.
3. Least favorite product?
Catrice Lash // Brow Designer - a clear brow gel. I don't know why but my eyebrows reacted to this product with a rash. YES! A rash in my eyebrow.... I'm not touching this product again.
4. What is the best makeup bargain?
Ebelin Blush Brush - lovely make up brush from DM. I absolutely love it. It's super soft, it washes very well and it the perfect shape to apply blush.
5. What is your favorite underdog product? (Something you love that often gets overlooked?)
I do not really know if this is an "underdog" product, but I didn't hear much about it. It's the EyeArtistKajal from Astor in "Earth Shimmer". It's a waterproof and long lasting kohl in a beautilful dark brown colour. It stays on very good, perfect to use on the waterline or to tightline your eyes.
6. A drugstore product that is overpriced?
I can't really think of of specific product, but I think that a lot of mascaras are a bit to expensive.
7. Show your best drugstore dupe(s)!!
I can't really proof that it is a dupe because I don't have the high end version but I heard that the L'Oreal Rouge Caresse lip glosses are a very good dupe for YSL Glossy Stains. YSL is owned by L'Oreal and I've read reviews that said that they are nearly the same products, just with a huge price difference.
8. Drugstore product that isn't worth the hype?
A lot of people will think I am mental, but I don't like the Maybelline Falsies Mascara :/ When I apply the mascara my lashes look amazing and I do actually really like the wand, but after about 10 minutes the whole mascara smudges under my eyes and I look like a panda. When I remove the mascara under my eyes it does it again, after the third time of removing it it stays on. And I didn't even use it on my bottom lashes...
