My Favourite High St / Drugstore Products

I think that there are many high street products which are comparable to and sometimes even better than higher end products. I have tried hundreds of high street products, and I would like to give you the benefit of my research! So here is my list of products which I think are worth checking out, and definetely worth the money.

Bourjois Delice de Poudre Bronzing Powder

I'm sure you will have heard of this bronzer. The colour is brilliant - not too orange or too brown. It is also matt, which for me is an absolute must: too much shimmer can look unnatural and over the top in my opinion. Plus, because there is no shimmer, it also means this bronzer can double up as a contouring powder. It also smells amazing! It retails for £6.99 in Boots and Superdrug.

Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer

I love this concealer, and I talk about it in my Favourite Make Up Items post. It's just the best I have tried quite simply! It costs £3.99.

Natural Collection Blush in Pink Cloud

This is a lovely blush, a very light pink, very much a dupe for MAC Well Dressed. It is very pigmented and lasts well on my cheeks. Natural Collection is only available in Boots, and this blush costs £1.99 (or you can buy three items for £5).

Collection 2000 Naturally Radiant Foundation 

There is a story behind this. I went to holiday in Cornwall last summer and annoyingly I forgot to bring the foundation I was using at the time, MAC Studio Sculpt. So I had to buy an emergency replacement from the only shop for miles around, which was Tesco. I only bought this as it was the cheapest I could find from the very limited selection! But honestly this foundation is AMAZING! Especially for the price, which I think was around £4. It has a medium coverage in my opinion, and gives quite a satin type of finish. It looks very natural and on my skin it lasted all day. I find it very moisturising. I love this. And it also has SPF 15!

Collection 2000 Big Fake Mascara

Again, another amazing Collection 2000 product! This mascara is brilliant, mainly due to the huge brush! It separates lashes well, is very black and doesn't flake off. It is around £4.99.

17 Mirror Shine Lipstick in Beehive.

This lipstick is beautiful. It is a nude/pink colour, and has a very glossy finish. It feels and looks almost like  lipgloss but without the stickiness. You can wear it on its own (like above) or layered over other lipsticks to give a shiny finish. I love it over MAC Creme d'Nude.Was around £4.50 from Boots.

Barry M Liquid Liner in Black

This has a felt tip liner which makes it super easy to apply. It is very black and lasts all day, does not fade or rub off. It costs around £4.


A classic. I don't think I need to explain this! Everyone should have one!
