Products I Loved:

I personally love the Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation to the point that I actually reach for this more than a lot of my high end products. I love the dewy finish it gives to my skin and I find the colour match spot on (which is suspected due to the name) despite it being from the drugstore. The coverage, for me, is perfect and it does not cake up on the skin during the application process which is more than impressive for such a cheap price tag. 

The Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer is one of my all time favourite products EVER from the drugstore. This is one of the best concealers I have ever used and I am taking into consideration both high end and high street products. The coverage is insane and the creamy consistency makes blending a dream especially with a damp beauty blender. If you are going to try one product from this post then I seriously suggest this!

I haven't used the Rimmel Exaggerate Lip Liner for a while and I do not understand why as after using it for this video, I completely fell in love with it again. First of all, I love the fact that it is a twist up pencil meaning no sharpener is required which is an absolute godsend. Secondly, the colour is stunning and seriously on trend right now so I suggest instead of forking out the cash on MAC Soar, just grab this instead from your local drugstore! 

Products That Didn't Impress:

You can probably see from the video my pained expression in regards to the application process of the Soap & Glory Archery Brow Pencil. I feel it is only fair to say that first of all this product is old which suggests the dry and overly-waxy formula. Secondly, since purchasing this product, Soap & Glory have reformulated this product and I have loved and used up the new Archery Pencil whose performance is seriously outstanding in comparison to its predecessor and that isn't just because they included a 'spoolie' this time around. 

I am very confused about the purpose of the MUA Undress Your Skin Highlighting Powder as although I am aware it is always going to be cheaply made, it still doesn't really fulfil its purpose. I own other drugstore highlights that still offer some serious glow despite their inexpensive status where is this practically offered a slight gleam that was only apparent in really, really good sunlight. I personally think this could actually work out as a beautiful dupe for the Hourglass Ambient Lighting powders as that is what the finish of this product reminds me of. I shall report back with any discoveries I have in regards to this hopeful venture but currently, as a highlighter, it is a no from me. 

I hope you enjoyed the video and this quick rundown.
