My Highstreet Favourites

I saw that Kate uploaded a similar video today and it got me thinking about my drugstore/highstreet favourites so I made my own version. I'm generally a high end makeup girl but I really cannot enter Boots or Superdrug without coming out with a bag full of items! I had a good think about it and picked a few of the ones I reach for on a regular basis but it also gave me a bit of time to dig around my makeup collection and rediscover a few other items I've not used in a while but really loved. I'm gonna give them a test again and then possibly do another video based on drugstore recommendations! Feel free to watch this on Youtube for all the details and remember to like and subscribe (:

  2. This makes me super envious of being in Australia instead of the UK. There is just so much products to offer. Great video and post nonetheless. x

  12. I tried the St Moriz tan recently, it's absolutely brilliant. I'd never fake tanned before, and was a bit nervous about the results but I was so impressed! I tend to be more interested in the high-end of make-up, but then more drugstore skincare!

  19. I use the rimmel stay matte to get rd of any shininess on my face, daily. Personally, it's not that great coverage wise, but it definitely takes the shine away which is what I'm after!
