Top 5 Holy Grail High Street Products

Hi everyone,

There are some products that I like to spend a little more on, such as foundation and powder, but more and more over the last few months I have been discovering high street products that do just as good a job for half the price. I really think high street brands have upped their game and are making products that can really compete with higher end ones and that provided me with the inspiration for this post. As my makeup collection consists a lot more of the high street brands, I thought it might be a nice idea to share my top 5 Holy Grail high street products at the moment :)

1)  Rimmel Lasting Finish 24 hour Powder - £6.99

My go to powder always used to be Clinique Almost Powder Makeup and although I still really like it, I have discovered that there are plenty of high street powders that I like just as much. My favourite at the moment is the Rimmel Lasting Finish powder which does a great job at keeping the shine at bay as well as providing light coverage.

2)  L’oréal Superliner - £6.49

I have to admit that liquid eyeliner isn’t my favourite and I find it quite difficult to apply. However, the L’oréal Superliner is so easy to use and allows you to obtain a really precise finish that lasts all day without smudging or flaking off. It also gives a really black finish that isn’t too glossy which makes it a huge winner in my books!

3)  Bourjois Shine Edition Lipstick - £7.99

I love the creamy and soft finish of these lipsticks but despite their smooth texture they still last a decent amount of time before you need to reapply. My favourite shade is Grenade In which is a lovely deep berry colour and has excellent colour pay off. I also have Oh My Doll which is a baby pink shade, but I don’t like this one as much due to it being quite pale and more sheer. I have recently converted my mum onto these lipsticks too and she loves how moisturising they feel.

4)  Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer - £5.49

I think this one would be on a lot of peoples Holy Grail list as it seems to have a bit of a cult following. I use this concealer to brighten under my eyes rather than cover blemishes and find that it really does make me look more awake and bright eyed. I bought it in a shade paler than I would go for normally to get that extra brightening effect.

5)  MaxFactor FaceFinity Primer - £10.99

I have mentioned this product quite a lot on my blog but I couldn’t write this post without including it. This is probably the only product that I have used religiously for about a year without being tempted to try any alternatives. For the price, it is a great product and without it my makeup would most definitely be half way down my face by the end of most days!

All of these products are ones which I can’t get enough off and the added bonus is that none of them will break the bank. Which high street products would you recommend? Have you tried any of the ones I have mentioned?

Thanks for reading,
