Drugstore Makeup Picks for Summer 2016
It wouldn’t be a surprise for many of you that sometimes affordable makeup products could be disappointing in terms of the quality. I myself love drugstores such as Boots and Superdrug. Most of the times I can’t resist going inside and pick some makeup that I couldn’t live without anymore (haha). I find it’s very tempting to buy something because it’s quite affordable and also a selection is normally huge. I always find something new and sparkly for myself. I have to admit that often I’d be disappointed by the quality of the makeup bought in a drugstore, but today I have a killer selection of products for you. These makeup products are of a very high quality, good value for money and must-haves for summer 2016 makeup in my opinion!
Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer
I’ve heard a lot of good things about this concealer on Youtube! Beauty vloggers from all over the World talk about this product and say that it’s one of the best affordable concealers. I had to try it myself. The day I bought it, I started to test it on myself. I really love the smooth texture. It’s quite creamy and reach, allows you to cover dark circles.

Rimmel Stay Matte Long Lasting Press Powder
Again this purchase was drawn by the number of reviews on Youtube talking about it. I love my Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder. But let’s get real, it’s very expensive and not everyone can afford it. But everyone wants a makeup last all day long, right? Stay Matte comes in a variety of colours, the one that matches me in summer is 005 Silky Beige. I’ve tested the powder and I agree that it sets makeup and help to actually prolong the makeup wear.
Beauty Tip: Take a powder with you in and fix the makeup on the go. Don’t forget to clean the excess oil with a blotting paper before applying an extra layer of setting powder. This way you will avoid cakey look and actually fix a problem.
Bourjois Blusher in Copper Brown
For some reason, I get very nostalgic when it comes to a Bourjois makeup. Maybe it’s because Bourjois was one of the first makeup brands I’ve tried. I’ve heard many times that Bourjois blushers are produced by the same factory that produces blushers for Chanel. I don’t know if it’s true or not, but the smell and shape of the blusher are totally the same. The shimmery baked formula is also very similar. Anyway, I recommend buying the blush in a shade 03 Copper Brown, as it’s a perfect bronzy shade for summer. It gives you a healthy looking, a little illuminated and sun-kissed finish. Blushers from Bourjois are a drugstore makeup must-haves!

L’oreal Nail Varnish
To be honest I often buy my nail varnishes from a drugstore. I feel like with nail varnishes it’s not a big difference between cheap and expensive. The selection of nail varnishes in drugstore brands is always extremely wide. So there is always a colour for everyone. During my last visit to Boots, I’ve bought a L’oreal nail varnish from the new collection in a shade Jardin Des Roses. I was looking for a soft almost baby pink rose colour because it’s very trendy this summer. I was very surprised by the quality. Even though my nails are very weak at the moment and all my nail varnishes chip after a day, this one stayed on nails perfectly for about a week. I haven’t tried different colours, but I’m very impressed with the formula and highly recommend checking the range.
Pixi by Petra Makeup Fixing Mist
Fixing sprays or face mists is something that I can’t live without. Especially in summer when it’s hot, make-up wants to melt all the time and in general needs refreshing during the day. I like to apply fixing spray before makeup to prolong the wear. I also apply to finish up the makeup look. It sets makeup and adds a soft-focus finish. In summer I recommend to taking a face mist with you to refresh makeup, hydrate and balance your skin.
Beauty Tip: Hold the bottle about 30cm away from the face, close your eyes and spray over face and neck to refresh your makeup during the day.
