Drugstore Haul & First Impressions

Last week I went a little bit crazy in boots after watching old drugstore hauls from a few of my favourite YouTubers – then went in to Topshop and fell head over heels for a few of their beauty bits. Et voila, my most recent Drugstore Haul was born.


Foundation: L’Oreal True Match Foundation (R2C2)

Concealer: L’Oreal True Match Concealer (2 – Vanilla)

Eyeshadow: Maxfactor Cream Shadows (Copper & Bronze)

Eye Liner: Collection Fast Stroke Liquid Liner

Mascara: L’Oreal False Lash Architect Mascara 

Brows: Soap & Glory two in one brow pencil (Blondeshell & Hot Chocolate)

Lips: Topshop Velvet Lips (Velveteen Ribbon & Blood Orange)

    I love the Soap & Glory brow pencil as like you I find it is a lot more cool and suited to my eyebrow colour than most other drugstore brow products.

    The L'Oreal foundation is my favourite highstreet base it has such a nice finish. The Topshop Velvets looks beautiful!

    Ha! Boots has a lot to answer for…a bit disappointed that they've done away with their in store points machine…;(

    The L'Oreal true match lumi is one of my favorite foundations. I have yet to try the original true match, just hate the packaging here in the states so I refuse to buy it (serious first world probs). The top shop lippies look gorgeous.

    I am new to the world of makeup brushes and I was wondering if you could do a tutorial/overview of the best brushes to use for different purposes. That would be so helpful!

    The cream eyeshadows really intrigue me, but I don´t like shimmer on my eyes anymore, maybe they will make some matte cream shadows some time?

    As serious as fashion can be, there’s no denying it’s also a form of entertainment, and sometimes that entertainment comes not with clothes, but with words spoken by people who’ve had an impact on the industry. Whether it’s Coco Chanel and her worldly wisdom, Marc Jacobs talking about his propensity for making “real” clothes, or Simon Doonan sounding off about, well, anything, the best fashion ones that say so much with a few short words. Check out Robecart.com Designer Women's Top Fashion Brands it has the best selection of fashionable clothes, jeans, dress, bags, shoes, accessories, etc.

    The soap and glory eyebrow pencils look really good. I really want to try them out, but they don't sell in Belgium. Any recommendations on something that's very similar to it??

    I got the Max Factor cream eyeshadows and I actually really like them. I agree Copper is a bit too sheer. The way I like to wear them is applying Copper all over the lid with a bit of Bronze in the crease. Unlike you I found them really easy to work with. I apply the Copper with my fingers and blend Bronze with a Real Techniques blending brush. No dirty hands, no mess. 🙂
