This is embarrassing to admit this but it’s the first time I’ve bought drugstore makeup products. However, the results were pleasantly surprising.

I don’t really see such a big difference between drugstore makeup brands and the designer brands that I’ve been using for years. So is it really worth spending on the designer brands?!

I know I’m not sure anymore…I’d love to know what you think. Leave your comments below!

 Both these palettes have become my favourites and I use them daily.

The eyeshadow palette is called Revolution Ultra Eyeshadow Palette Beyond FlawlessI simply love all the colours on this palette, they’re all beautiful neutral colours. That’s 32 stunning neutral colours! I prefer wearing neutral colours over brighter other colours. I just feel more comfortable and natural like that, but if you prefer more fun colours there are other Revolution Eyeshadow palettes which I’m sure are just as great in quality.

These eyeshadows are really great quality and very pigmented too.

I sometimes cheat and also use this palette for contouring. Really it’s not cheating- the colours are perfect for it so why not!

The blush palette is called Revolution Ultra Blush Palette Hot SpiceIt comes with 8 beautiful colours with a combination of shimmer and matte colours. it also has highlighter for different skin shades. Its really useful for every occasion, fancy or everyday wear.

I usually have quite a hard time finding a blush that isn’t too overpowering for my skin. I’ve got a very pale complexion and I find this palette really works for me.

I have totally fallen in love with this Maybelline Lash Sensational Multiplying Mascara. Seriously it’s amazing. I have really thin and short eyelashes. The type of eyelashes no one wants! This is the first mascara that has lengthened, thickened and volumized my eyelashes. It does all this without clumping my eyelashes- and I hate clumping so its really amazing!

I got it in intense black because I like my eyelashes dark. My mascara also stays on the entire day with this mascara and there’s not smudging.

The biggest selling points for me for the Nyx Matte Bronzer was firstly that it’s matte. For some reason matte bronzers are quite rare to come by, and for an everyday look I prefer not to shimmer and shine so I’m always on the lookout for a good matte bronzer.

The second selling point for me was the colour. As I mentioned previously I’m very pale and almost all bronzers look like orange paint on my skin. Not this one- this is the most natural not too orange, not too red colour. This is honestly the best bronzer I have ever used and I’ve been through my fair share of them! It also applies really nicely. I got it in light so if you have a darker skin tone it comes in darker colours too.

Nyx has some really nice makeup with unbelievable prices.

I hope you enjoyed my blog on the best drugstore makeup buys of the month! I enjoyed sharing my recent finds with you. Have a great day and do share your comments and thoughts with me!

  1. I love makeup revolution eyeshadows. Haven’t tried the blush palette. Looks nice!

  2. Hi Hollie,

    Thanks for sharing. Do you know which country are they made from? I am not a racist but I just try to avoid makeup products that are manufactured in China. The last time I tried to save money and used a China-made product, my skin got allergic reactions.

    Also, can you point me to where I can get them the cheapest?

    Thank you!


    1. I think the revolution palettes the Nyx bronzer are made in China but the Maybelline mascara looks like its made in France. My review is my personal experience, I would say if you have sensitive skin or prone to reactions to be careful or test first.

      These products are pretty much the same price everywhere. I always find Amazon has good prices so I have added those links.

      Have a good day!

  3. Hi hollie
    Love your information on the drug store makeup
    It was very informative.
    You wonder sometimes with the prices of products and how they can vary from place to place.
    I have a present to buy for a mature woman relative i liked the palette you wrote on, i would like your advice on would the palette suit a mature person?

    1. Hi Gareth, in my experience I found the prices of drugstore makeup to be pretty similar everywhere. I think the palette is perfect for all ages.I don’t think you can go wrong with a neutral palette! Good luck
