YouTube made me do it

As I mentioned in my last post, I'm on a mission to find my holy grail beauty products this year. I've been an everyday makeup wearer for a long time now, but I've never really experimented with different products. 

After hearing many a beauty guru rave on about how amazing certain 'drugstore' products are, I decided to bite the bullet and spend all my money make a few online purchases. Here in New Zealand our makeup choices are very limited, we really only have a few big brands such as Loreal, Maybelline, Covergirl, Rimmel and Revlon, and I think the stores stock only a limited range here compared to overseas. Not to mention, everything is extremely expensive!

The products I bought were all recommended by beauty vloggers on YouTube, particularly Shaaanxo (a fellow kiwi), Fleur deForce, and Karissa Pukas. I'd never heard of brands like NYX, Elf and Wet n Wild before, so I was super excited to try them out, especially when I found out how cheap they are.

The products I got are:

-Covergirl Outlast 3-in-1 foundation in 825 buff beige
-Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser for Dark Circles in light and neutralizer
-Rimmel Match Perfection concealer in 230 fair/light
-Garnier Roll-on Anti-Dark Circles in fair
-Rimmel Stay Matte pressed powder in translucent
-NYX Powder Blush in angel
-NYX Cream Blush in boho chic 
-Elf Baked Blush in Pinktastic (used as a highlighter)
-NYC Smooth Skin Bronzing Face Powder in sunny
-Elf Eyebrow Kit in ash
-Jordana Brow Powder Duo in 01 light
-Wet n Wild Color Icon Brow and Eye Liner in 648 Taupe

What are your favourite drugstore products and who are your favourite beauty bloggers/YouTubers?



  1. I wish I could recommend you something, but I have yet to find my holy grail of beauty products. Have a lovely day.

  2. I have bought a fair few of these products and a whole lot more because of bloggers and youtubers. I am trying not to be so easily swayed these days as I have regretted buying many of them!
