Tag: I Love Drugstore Makeup

Today I finally get to publish a tag I've been challenged to do a while ago and I've finally made the time to do it! It's the : I Love Drugstore Makeup Tag.
some of my drugstore products
1.What is your favourite drugstore makeup brand overall?  
It's hard to pick one I have several favourites, but looking at my make-up collection currently I own the most drugstore products from Revlon.

2.What are your favourite face, cheek and lip products?
I like the long-lasting foundation from Max Factor, the Colorstay from Revlon and the BB cream from Nivea.

For the cheeks I looove the Milani Luminoso blush (a dupe for Nars orgasm) - review soon and the Max Factor Crème Puff Blush in Lovely Pink. In the hotter seasons I like to wear less make-up so tints and cream blushes are the favourites : currently Benefit Benetint and Chachatint and The Body Shop Honey Bronze Highlighting Dome in 02 Pink (a cream blonzer/blush in pink gold).
For the lips I use mostly lipsticks from Avon, Revlon, Essence, Rimmel and some higher end ones.

3. Least favourite product?
The long-lasting liquid lipsticks or glosses. I don't like the stickiness. I tend to eat the lip products and they fade in the middle and product does not look so good so I have to remove it (especially if it is a strong, bold colour).

4. What is the best makeup bargain?
The Milani baked blushes, all Wycon products, especially eye bases, shadows, liners, lipliners, blushes (I have reviewed a few products on the blog, search Wjcon and check them out!They are worth it!)

5. What is your favourite underdog product? 
The Romanian Ada lip and eye crayons - very cheap and good quality (you can find them in the beauty metro shops).

6. A drugstore product that is overpriced.
Although very good quality the products from L'Oreal are a little bit pricey.

7. Show your best drugstore dupe!
As I said before the Milani Luminoso blush, The Balm  Hot Mama and The Body Shop Honey Bronze Highlighting Dome in 02 Pink (a cream blonzer/blush in pink gold), all are dupes after the Nars Orgasm. (I'll make a post comparing the three, I don't have Nars orgasm).
8. Drugstore product that isn't worth the hype? 
The Maybelline 24h color tatoos for me too. I have very oily eyelids and they crease with or without make-up on top in around 4-5 hours. So no, for me they don't work as an eye base; they are said to be a dupe for the MAC paintpots. I have one in Painterly and it is the best. If I properly apply it, it keeps my eyeshadow from creasing for 8 to 9 hours minimum. I cannot say the same for the Maybelline ones. They are good, but they don't work as well in case of oily eyelids. They last much more for drier eyelids.

And that's it! This tag has inspired me to write another one showing you my very favourite drustore products (soon on the blog). I pass the challenge to Danamakeup , Lili's boutique and Makemeup28. Enjoy the tag ladies! Until next time ,


  1. Foarte interesanta postarea. Unele dintre raspunsuri sunt similare cu ale mele s putea spune si ma bucur sa vad ca avem pareri asemanatoare in privinta anumitor produse.

    1. Da ,de asta este asa distractiv si interesant sa faci un tag, afli ca ai multe lucruri in comun sau nu cu cineva, alte puncte de vedere, alte produse de care poate nu auzisei si asa mai departe. Imi place sa fac taguri si sa le citesc la altii. Pupici!

  2. Foarte draguta postarea<3 chiar mi-a placut. Se gaseste Milani in Romania? Eu nu am vazut niciodata :-/ Si anticearcanul de la Maybelline Age rewind cum ti se pare? Vreau sa mi-l iau si eu , am vazut ca pe youtube pare a fi unul dintre cele mai bune :D

  3. Milani a fost in Romania, era adus de cei de la Cosmetica Verde. Din cate stiu l-au retras de la noi. Au magazin in Baneasa Mall la subsol. Anticearcanul e nou, inca nu l-am incercat. Am auzit ca e bun, il am de terminat pe cel de la Revlon care e pe final si apoi il voi testa pe cel de la Maybelline. Nu imi place sa am deschise 7 produse de acelasi fel, mi se pare risipa.

  4. I don't like sticky glosses too, and I think Loreal is also overratted, and Maybelline too.. :) I think my fave brand is Max Factor, but I can't say for sure cuz there are sooo many new brands and products that are so good, and nice dupes to HE products. I need to buy some Milani blushes :)

    1. Yes Milani baked blushes are very good! If you have a Wycon store near you, you can try the blushes in their newest limited collection, post here - http://beautyinfiveminutes.blogspot.ro/2015/07/wycon-wild-escape-limited-collection-or.html . I think the first or second blush on top may be also similar with Milani Luminoso.


I would love to hear from you
