Testing New Drugstore Beauty Products + {Giveaway}

There’s nothing more exciting than playing around with new makeup, wouldn’t you agree? I’ve had these beauty items on my vanity for the past week and excited to share my thoughts with you guys. There’s also a giveaway at the end of this post but you’ll have to read till the end to find out more.

I’ve reviewed quite a few drugstore brands on my blog and there are products that I repurchase every time I run out because they’re just that good. In today’s post, I’m sharing my thoughts on products from 3 different brands, namely;


Wet n Wild

If you’ve been following me, you would know that Wet n Wild is one of my favourite drugstore brands. Below are a few posts where I’ve reviewed some of their products.

Photo Focus Matte Setting Spray

Color Icon Eyeshadow Palette

Megalast Liquid Catsuit 

I love their Coloricon palettes and you can tell from the review posts above. I’m familiar with their single shadows but must say, I prefer the palates.

Here we have 2 single shadows in shade Nudecomer (glitter finish) and Mesmerized (satin finish with light shimmer). The glitter finish feels creamy and applies easily on the lid. One thing to take note of is that it takes a while to set. So allow it to dry so it doesn’t transfer onto the top of your lid. Shade Mesmerized is this gorgeous plum shadow with flexes of gold glitter that works beautifully for a smokey eye.

Next is the lip liner in the shade Gone Burgundy. These lipliners are creamy, pigmented, doesn’t bleed and wears really well. The best part is that they’re incredibly affordable.

Physicians Formula velvet Lip + Wet n Wild lipliner


Physicians Formula

I recently attended a Masterclass where Physician Formula shared some information on the history of the brand as well as the concept of Physicians Formula providing Healthy Beauty to its consumers.

” It all started in 1937, when leading allergist Dr. Frank Crandall created Physicians Formula as an expression of love for his wife Edith, who suffered from lupus and longed for makeup that wouldn’t aggravate her sensitive skin.

Since then, we have continued Dr. Crandall’s concept of “healthy beauty.” To this day, every one of our products is carefully crafted and tested to meet our strict requirements: they are hypoallergenic, safe for sensitive skin and eyes, and created without any of the 150+ known harsh ingredients found in other personal care items.”

I’ve taken such an interest in the brand now that I know more about them and eager to try more of their products.

Here we have

Murumuru Butter Butter Bronzer in shade bronzer

What It Is:

Ultra-luxurious bronzer, infused with Murumuru Butter, delivers a radiant Brazilian goddess glow! Incredibly creamy and soft texture combines the best features of a powder and cream bronzer, to deliver a lit-from-within tropical glow unlike any other.

Why It’s Good For You:

Packed with essential fatty acids and pro-vitamins that soften, condition and moisturize skin, leaving it silky soft. Ultra-rich bronzer formula instantly melts into skin, sealing-in moisture to deliver instant and lasting hydration. Features ultra-refined pearl and soft-focus pigments that smooth skin texture, brighten skin tone and deliver a gorgeous bronze finish.

This rich soft textured bronzer not only feels amazing but also smells like a holiday. The coconut scent gets me every time I open the compact and I LOVE IT. The powder blends and sits beautifully on the skin. It gives a gorgeous natural, luminous finish that doesn’t emphasize skin texture.


The Healthy Lip Velvet Liquid Lipstick in shade Coral Mineral

What It Is:

Long-wearing, decadent mousse-like texture lipstick delivers high-impact colour that glides on for seamless one-stroke colour payoff.

Why It’s Good for You:

The light-weight, cream formula features beauty miracle-worker, avocado oil that hydrates and moisturizes, while hyaluronic acid smooths and enhances lips overtime for a healthy beautiful pout.

Physicians Formula velvet Lip + Wet n Wild lipliner

These lippies are great for those who stay clear from extremely matte and drying liquid lipsticks. The healthy lip velvet lipsticks feel extremely lightweight on the lips and wear for a solid six hours without cracking or flaking.


Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Shadow & Liner Nude Collection in Nude Eyes

Product information

Modern and versatile palettes for a new twist on classic nude shades.

Rich, earthy tones shades create a nude look with a glow of warmth.

Wet & Dry application for two finishes: wet for dramatic, intense colour with ultra long-lasting wear. Transforms the shadow into a liner. Dry for a softer result.

These shadows are perfect for those who want a natural makeup look. Just swipe some of the shimmers on the lids to add a bit of glam. What I love most is that you can pack the colour on to get an even more intense colour payoff and shimmery effect.


Eco Tools

“Armed with a mission to make women look beautiful on the outside and feel just as good on the inside, sisters Jen and Stacey set out to create a brush collection that was not only environmentally friendly, but chic, high-quality, and affordable too. After sourcing recycled materials, renewable bamboo and better manufacturing processes, in 2007, EcoTools® was born. “

EcoTools‘ makeup brushes are made with cruelty-free Taklon bristles, sustainable bamboo handles, and other natural and recyclable materials. Doesn’t this sound amazing?

I’ve been playing around with

Perfecting Blender Applicator

A soft, flexible sponge on a bamboo handle to easily apply foundation and concealer around the contours of the face.

You can use the sponge wet or dry. I prefer it wet and use it to blend my concealer.

Complexion Buffer

The COMPLEXION BUFFER is designed with a flat, blunt bristle cut to evenly apply, blend and buff product for a streak-free finish.

The bristles feel so soft and perfect for pressed or powder products. I’ve used it for blush and it blends the product out effortlessly.


Wonder Impact™ Shadow

The Wonder Impact™ Shadow brush is designed with 25,000 bristles for intense colour impact of powder and cream eye shadows in less time. The brush can be used wet or dry. Dampen bristles for more colour and less makeup fall out.

I used this brush for the Wet n Wild glitter shadow mentioned above and it applied the shadow with ease.

    I have an idea. Since you have such a beautiful blog, have you ever thought of doing a post that teaches others how to create a beauty blog? I think it could be helpful for aspiring bloggers.
