I ♥ Drugstore Makeup (Australian)!!!

In the interest of getting more into blogging I thought I would give another tag a go! I saw this one on, so here it goes! 

1. What is your favorite drugstore makeup brand?
Hmmm it would have to be out of either Rimmel or Maybelline. I really can't choose between them! 
2. What are your favorite face, cheek and lip products?
Face: Australis True Translucent Finishing Powder. This powder is AMAZING it matte-ifies your foundation and makes it last all day and it's totally translucent so it doesn't effect the colour of your face. All that and it's super cheap!!

Cheek: Lately I've been loving the Rimmel Match perfection blush in light. I talked about this in a recent haul and have really been loving it over the past couple of weeks. Because there are three different shades in the one blush I have been using the lightest shade as a highlight and the mixing all three as a blush. It gives great colour payoff and a very reasonable price compared to other blushes in Australia. 

Lip: Maybelline Colour sensational Lipstick in Pink Freeze. I have mentioned this a couple of times before and it is my favourite shade of al time! 

3. Least favorite product?
That's a hard one, I haven't come across a lot of makeup products that I really hate as I try to do my research before I buy anything. One product I haven't been all that impressed by is the Rimmel BB cream. I have't used it many times but so far I don't think it really gives enough coverage for me. 

4. What is the best makeup bargain?
Essence Stay With Me Lipgloss!!! These are amazing! You can read my full review here. But in short they give amazing colour payoff and are only around $4, which is AMAZING in Australia! 

5. What is your favorite underdog product?
Once again the Essence lipgloss! I really don't think they get anywhere near enough attention in the beauty world because they really are awesome for the price. 

6. A drugstore product that is overpriced?
Haha all makeup is overpriced in Australia but probably the worst is Loreal. 

7. Show your best drugstore dupe(s)!!
I don't really own any high end products so I have no idea. 

8. Drugstore product that isn't worth the hype?
Maybelline lip butters. They're nice but they are definitely not worth $20. The colour payoff isn't great and I didn't even think they made my lips feel any more moist or soft. I don't understand why people love them soooo much!

  2. Dang. I wrote my comment and it appeared twice so I deleted one of the comments and now they are both gone!

    Anyhow, great post! I love reading about everyone's favourite products. I need to try the Essence glosses. I have the Rimmel Match Perfection blush and love it too, but I'd never thought of using the light colour as a highlighter, I'm going to try that tomorrow!
