Earlier on , I did a HighEnd Makeup Wishlist and I promised that I would do a drugstore version , so here it is. I’ve had my eye on these for such a long time and I’m definitely going to be purchasing soon. All of these are cruelty free as I have recently decided from now on , I am only buying cruelty free makeup and when I have used my non cruelty free makeup I am not repurchasing. So carry on reading if you want to see what’s on my wishlist ..
- Colourpop Highlighter Flexitarian – $8
I recently bought two colourpop liquid lipsticks , a satin and a matte and I was so impressed by their quality! Check out my review here : . I really want to try their highlighters because they look insane and are apparently so creamy and intensely pigmented ! If I really like it , it is a lot cheaper than my current Highlighter (the Mary loumaniser) and seems quite similiar – maybe a dupe? I also want to venture out with my highlighters as I only own one and even though it’s amazing , I really want to try some others .
- Nyx Lip Lingerie in Scandulous and French Maid – £6.50
I own a few of the Nyx Lip Lingeries and I love the formula of them , the applicator is the perfect size and they come in the most gorgeous nudes . My personal favourite has to be bedtime flirt as it goes with every look possible. They’ve just released 12 new shades of them and I definitely have my eye on scandalous and delicate lust as scandalous is a cool toned greyish taupe ( I’ve been obsessed with cool toned brown lips) and french maid is a gorgeous muted mauve.
- Nyx Angel Veil Primer – £13
I have heard such good reviews for this primer especially from KathleenLights . Apparently it is great for smoothing out your skin and is a mattifying primer. Even though I have dry skin , I absolutely love a matte base and as my foundation is quite glowy , it will even it out . It’s such an affordable price aswell and I’m obsessed with Nyx products so I think it will be perfect for me!
- Sleek Solstice Highlighting Palette
Am I the only one who hasn’t tried this? I swear everyone I know seems to own this and their highlight always looks so amazing! I prefer more natural highlights and this has such a good variety of subtle and a lot more prominent shades such as hemisphere. I like how you can also use it for eyeshadow especially the lilac shade with some of the cranberry shades in my Morphe 35t would look incredible!They seem to be such good quality and also look so photogenic , which is always a bonus! It is such a good price and I like how it includes a cream highlight instead of just all powders.
- Colourpop Matte Pressed Powders in Dreamboat and Cute Alert – $5
I own quite a lot of shimmery shadows and hardly any mattes and when I found out Colourpop were releasing some matte eyeshadows I was so excited! I’ve heard such good reviews about their eyeshadows as they are so buttery and in such a good variety of shades. Dreamboat is the perfect transition shade which is what I desperately need and Cute Alert is a lovely burgundy shade which is perfect for my favourite warm toned eye looks!
- Nyx Lid Lingerie in Sweet Cloud – £6
Every time I go to Boots , I always end up drawn to this but I have never bought it because I have so many eyeshadows in similiar shades to this , I don’t really need it. But like everything you don’t necessarily need , you want !It’s such a gorgeous colour and they are so pigmented with a lovely texture but I’m quite nervous about trying a liquid shadow. I’m just scared they won’t blend properly and will crease easily. However, I still really want to try one just to see what the massive hype is about . Have any of you tried a liquid shadow ?
- I Heart Makeup Palettes – £8
I Heart Makeup have dupes to every TooFaced Chocolate Bar Palettes , even the Sweet Peach one! They smell like chemical chocolate but their pigmentation is meant to be amazing , as they are the same formula as the Makeup Revolution palettes. The shades are such a lovely variety to create any look , natural or smokey . I love that there is a variety of mattes , shimmers and metallics as most drugstore palette just seem to have loads of shimmers. To be honest I think I prefer the packaging on these to the original palettes even though they are a lot more bulky . Also they contain a mirror ! I know this sounds silly for me to get excited about but hardly any affordable palettes have mirrors especially when they are under £10!
- Nyx Liquid Illuminater in SunBeam – £8
Spot a pattern yet? Yes , yet another highlighter on my wish list! And yes yet another Nyx item! 2017, is the year I’m going to venture out on my makeup , instead of just using my usual . I’ve never tried a liquid highlighter and I know that if I use this as a base for my powder highlight, I will be blinding! You can also add these to your foundations for a more healthy , glowy look which will be absolutely perfect in summer!
I hoped you enjoyed having a nosy at my wishlist and I’d love to know what cruelty free drugstore products you love, so I can try them too! I’d also like to know what drugstore , cruelty free foundations you all love because as soon as mines run out I’m going to try a new one!
