Happy Monday, everyone! I am not particularly fond of Mondays, to be honest, but I think most people aren't. I am starting this week with a blog post that I've been meaning to write for quite a while now. I decided to share with you my top 5 products that I think you should definitely try if you are into beauty products. I picked only drugstore ones, because they are really affordable, but still give you unexpectedly good results. I am thinking I might do this type of post again in the future, just with different products, maybe go with a high-end version as well. Without any further rambling, here are the products that I think you should definitely try at least once.
The first product on my list is my favourite daily moisturizer, the Garnier Moisture Match, especially the one with the illuminating formula (it's in the yellow packaging). The reason I like this one is because I actually believe that, after using it for several months now, my skin has definitely become a bit more radiant than before, plus it is one of those products that goes really well under your foundation. It is the perfect base for your makeup, it does not become oily throughout the day, and it also has SPF. I use this daily in the mornings, after cleansing my face.
Moving on to the base of your makeup, the foundation. My favourite at the moment, and the one that I would highly recommend anyone to try is the Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation. I feel like this is the perfect combination between giving you a dewy, luminous look, whilst still not getting too oily or too cakey. I actually find that it gives a pretty natural finish, but it's still a pretty good coverage. It comes with a pump, in a nice glass bottle, so I definitely feel like it's a really good product for the price you pay.
The third face product I'm going to mention is something I've discovered this past winter, and that is the Avon Luxe Concealer. This looks sooo lovely under the eyes. It brightens up the area really nicely, it doesn't crease in your fine lines, and I feel like the packaging looks very high-end and luxurious. I always appreciate things like that about products. I definitely think everyone should give this a go, at least once.
For the eyes, I picked my all time favourite mascara, the Maybelline The Falsies one. I would highly, highly recommend this one. It has a wand that really flares out your lashes, giving them volume, whilst also giving a bit more length to them. I think it really gives a bit of a falsies effect. It's also really inexpensive, you should definitely give it a go.
Finally, this product is a recent discovery of mine, and it's actually a product that I picked up on a whim, I haven't really seen any reviews of this beforehand. But, may I just say, I was really impressed. And I'm not even that much of a lipgloss person. It is the Essence Nude Lipgloss (in the shade Shy Beauty). This is sooo cheap, as most Essence products are, so I didn't really expect much from it, just to have something to throw on top of my lipsticks. However, the formula of this is actually amazing. It is not sticky AT ALL, it stays on pretty well, it blends really nicely on your lips. I just feel like it's one of the best lipglosses I have ever tried. Definitely pick it up if you find yourself at the Essence counter.
I hope some of you found this helpful! Let me know what products you think I should try!
