Drugstore / High Street Make-Up Trial

Clockwise from top left:
Maybelline ClearSmooth ALL IN ONE Shine Free Cake Powder
Revlon PHOTOREADY Eye Art in 020 Lilac Luster
Real Techniques sponge
L'Oréal True Match Super Blendable Two Way Powder Foundation
Pupa Like A Doll Blush
Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm for Lips

I binge watched Lisa Eldridge make-up tutorials during my bedroom clear-out this month which inspired me to try some drugstore make-up. Lisa uses it all the time, and I figured with Chinese markets in a frightening downward spiral it may not be a bad idea to economize a bit. And well, if it's good enough for Ms. Eldridge, it should be more than fine for me.  

Pupa Pupart Eyeshadow Palette

I didn't own many matte eyeshadows, so I was super pleased to find this all matte palette at Sasa. So far the Maybelline Powder and the Revlon lip color are my favorites. I do think you need lip primer for the latter - it's super pigmented and long lasting but the stain it leaves is hard to remove (although that's also the case with Tom Ford lipstick). The lilac Revlon eye product goes on as a liquid and then sets after a few seconds, and then you can add sparkle on top from the other pot. It's quite dramatic and perfect as the base for an evening smoky eye.
