I had a really intense study day today, and am now sitting (up against my new amazing pillow from Society6, important detail) with my laptop, a cup of tea (I know, I am getting all english), some chilling music, and just need to think about something very fare from anything academic or study related. Not that my brain would be able to anyway. I am just in that mood were I am craving having a big glass of redwine and watching some bad netflix.
Instead I will share a list with you, that is very fare from anything study related as well😉
To be honest I truly believe and agree with that quality comes at a price, and unfortunately it is like that with most of the goods in life. Especially with beauty product the price generally matches the quality and effect, and I always prefer to buy good quality products that I can rely on, rather than buying 10 different drugstore products that I’am never fully satisfied with. I think that’s actually cheaper in the long run anyway – at least for me; when buying a “semi-bad” quality drugstore product I always end up buying a new one before finishing the first one – and in the time I would have used one of my favourite good-quality products I’ll have used 3 of the not-so-good-products.
BUT luckily there is an exception to this. There is some cheap drugstore products that I choose, not because they are cheap but because I think they are the best products out there! – and of course it doesn’t hurt that they aren’t abusing my bank account.
The products I would choose any day over their luxury-brand opposers:
- Maybelline Brow Drama, £ 4,99;
Hands down the best brow mascara I have ever tried! Or brow product in general. I’ve so light eyebrows and have always gotten them coloured at a professional, but since using this product I actually don’t find it necessary because it’s so easy to use and give the same effect.
- Batiste Dry Shampoo, £ 4,99;
If you haven’t tried this product already I don’t know were you’ve been. It has won beauty awards for best dry shampoo, and I must agree! – Best senses is the “clean and classic” or the “blush – floral and flirty”.
- Maybelline Great Lash Mascara, £ 4,99;
This product is kind of a legend in the mascara world, I think it’s even the worlds most purchased. With good reason! It has the perfect brush to create whatever kind of lashes you want, from long and adorable to thick and bold. It’s very ugly, but genius and so cheap!
- Trevor Sorbie, Curls and Waves Firm Hold Curl Cream, £ 5,40
This is a new discovery of mine and I am soooo happy I finally found a curl cream that works for me! You don’t even need to use a diffuser, just put a small amount in your hair and let it dry. The curls look amazing and isn’t crunchy or dry at all – but soft and bouncy!
- Max Factor, Masterpiece Max Mascara, £ 9,99
Another mascara that I’ve gone back to so many times! It truly gives you that deer-eyed look, with the longest lashes ever.
- Gosh, Intense Eye Liner Pen, £6,99
I almost never use Eye Liner, but when I do I want it to be perfect and the liner from Gosh easily makes me able to do that! Doubtless the best one I have tried, and it even has a nice lasting.
- Korres Lip Butter, £8,00
Korres is a greek pharmacy brand that have made its way into international drugstores not so long ago – and it’s amazing! I am for sure addicted to lip balms/butters – it’s my weekness – and Korres is one of my new favourites. The shea-butter makes your lips baby-soft and all the colours are so pretty!
- Aussie, 3 minute miracle moisture, £ 4,99
I think you’ve heard of this product and most of you have surely tried it, but anyway it’s the best in-shower hair-cure on the market (unless you want to spend an hour waiting). Seriously, try it if you haven’t already!
Hope some of you got inspired and will be able to save some money next time you need to fill up the beauty stock! I have to get up really early tomorrow, so I will hurry up and hop into bed. Sleep well everyone and talk to you soon😊
