So heres another Holiday series post, i'm off to tenerife next week so I have been picking up a few bits and pieces to take away with me. I have picked up a few drug store products recently. Even though they are for my holiday I have given them a go I can share my intial thoughts with you.

The Boujois CC cream is a lovely product, it's designed to cover and correct areas like dark circles and blemishes. I think this works really well but I couldn't wear it on its own as a foundation, I don't think it blends very well and it tends to come off when your applying it with a brush. I've been using this more as a concealer, I have been using it to correct my dark circles and blemishes and then using my every day foundation or bb cream over the top.

I used the maybelline bb cream last year and I have picked it up again, its designed for oily/combination skin. It gives great coverage and its very easy to apply and its long lasting. It gives a nice natural finish.

I also picked up this Rimmel bb cream, again it gives great coverage and leaves the skin looking very natural, it's easy to apply and works well on top of the bourjois cc cream.

I always use Rimmel Stay Matte powder, I've used other powders and they just don't seem to compare. I do tend to get abit shiny towards the end of the day however I have the most oily skin and no matter what I do I still end up shiny, I use blotting paper which does the job.

Illamasqua is such a fabulous brand, i like to use bright blushers especially in the summer so I will be bringing my powder blush along with me. Its got great staying power so i know it will last all day and night.

The collection brow kit is a new addition to my make up bag, theres 3 different shades of powder a brush and a clear mascara. You apply the powder to the brow and then lock it in using the mascara. I'm really happy with this cute little kit, I think my brows look great and its a bargain it was like £4.


What products do you bring on holiday?
