Top 5 Drugstore Eyebrow Products

Hey everyone, today’s post is all about my top 5 favourite eyebrow products. I’m no expert and can’t create the perfect brow but the products featured are super easy to use and great at filling in any gaps.

Drugstore Eyebrow Products

Maybelline Brow Satin: With a thin pencil at one end and a filling powder at the other it’s super easy to fill in your brows. I love this as it’s quick to use and small hair like strokes can be achieved. There’s currently not many shades to choose from which is the only downside. My shade is Medium Brown and it retails for £6.99

Maybelline Brow Drama: I use the clear shade (Transparent) and it’s perfect for setting brows into place, although the brush is quite large and ball shaped. It lasts for ages and only costs £5.99.

Freedom Eyebrow Pomade: this is my first experience with a pomade and I have the shade chocolate. I find it’s easier to apply when it’s warmed up first on the skin. The shade is great and it’s affordable at £5, you can also get pomades from the sister company Makeup Revolution.

Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil: I have a mini sample which came free with a magazine so it’s not an exact shade match but it is so easy to use! It’s shaped similar to a tear drop so you can use the point to shape and then fill in with the rest of the pencil. Full size: £20

Benefit Gimme Brow: As before it’s a magazine sample. It’s a brow gel with a small brush which applies so easily and doesn’t create a mess. It’s brush is a lot smaller than the Maybelline brow gel so it’s slightly more precise. Full size: £20

Out of all these products my go to is the Maybelline Brow Stain pencil as I personally find it the easiest to apply and it’s the best shade.

What’s your favourite brow product?


Superdrug Vitamin E Shower Moisturiser

Shower moisturisers are so underrated, I mean how many brands offer them? I discovered the Nivea one when I was pregnant and included it in my Pregnancy Skin Care Favourites. Now I’ve tried the Superdrug Vitamin E one I think I prefer this one out of the two.

Superdrug Vitamin E Shower Moisturiser

First of all the scent is just like a regular moisturiser so nothing strong or off putting and it has a similar consistency. A little of this really does go a long way and it can be so easy to squirt too much out.

This product makes your skin super soft so you don’t need to apply a body butter or lotion after the shower and lets face it who can always be bothered to do that?

It’s recommended for normal to dry skin types and costs £2.99 for 250ml.

The Vitamin E range is great and has everything from micellar water to face scrubs and every other skincare product you might need.

As always it’s cruelty free, vegan and vegetarian friendly.

B. Pro Gentle Lip Scrub

A good lip scrub is essential if you suffer with dry lips or if you want to prime your lips for a smoother applications of your lip products.

Today’s review is all about the B. Pro Gentle Lip Scrub. If you aren’t aware then B. is the cruelty free, vegan and vegetable friendly makeup and skincare brand by Superdrug.

B. Pro Gentle Lip Scrub

This particular scrub has no flavour which is a shame as I love the E.L.F mint maniac scrub. On the first use I found it didn’t actually do anything, this is one of those products where you have to work away the top layer first.

I love that it’s in lipstick form again which makes it quick to use on the go, however, the product itself is pretty basic including its packaging. It’s not a bad product it’s just not a brilliant product either.

Currently it’s on offer for £3.33 instead of £4.99. I personally wont be picking up this scrub again as there’s other brands selling scrubs for a similar price including Barry M who have now launched new flavours.

Makeup Revolution Pro Hygiene Solid Brush Cleaner Review

Makeup Revolution Solid Brush Cleaner hit or miss? Carry on reading to find out my full first impression!

First of all it costs £5 for a 100ml tub so it should last for a while and the packaging is pretty basic. One thing I didn’t like is that the instructions is stuck on with a sticky label which is already peeling off.

Makeup Revolution Solid Brush Cleaner

It’s pretty simple to use and handy to travel with as it isn’t very bulky. It is basically a pot of soap through that expires 12 months after opening.

From first impressions I was surprised at how well it removed harsh pink eyeshadow tones from the brushes with just one use.

used makeup brushes

clean makeup brushes

An observation I found is that it cleaned my EcoTools foundation brushes much better than my Real Techniques ones but it still didn’t remove all of the product.

It cleans eyeshadow brushes very quickly and removes all traces of products but face brushes take much longer and it’s not guaranteed you’ll get a fully clean brush.

Overall I think the product works fine but it didn’t really impress me, had it throughly cleaned my face brushes then I’d be recommending it but it isn’t anything special and if you have a bar of soap already at home then it will do the same job.

Makeup Revolution Skin Kiss Ice Kiss Highlighter

It’s no surprise that Makeup Revolution has became massively popular over the past year with more and more products coming out on a frequent basis.

Whilst today’s review isn’t a brand new launch it’s still fairly recent and is part of the Skin Kiss Highlighter collection. (New Shades have just launched)

Makeup Revolution Skin Kiss Ice Kiss Highlighter

The shade Ice Kiss is a stunning icy gold colour with a lot of pigment! It can be built up for a maximum glow or a little of this really does go a long way. The pan it comes in is absolutely huge so it will last a long time but who can resist buying more highlighters regardless of whether they’ve ran out?

The Skin Kiss range consists of gorgeous shades and each one costs just £5!

B. Pure Micellar Water

Ditch the wipes in favour of the B. Pure Micellar Water. It cleanes, tones and refreshes skin whilst gently removing make up. 

B. Pure Micellar Water
It’s great for all skin types including very sensitive skin and best of all you can use it on Eye make up!

 I’ve tried Micellar waters and face wipes in the past which have made my eyes feel sore afterwards and my skin isn’t even that sensitive but this product is great. One problem I did find with removing eye make up is that for eyeliner it did transfer it under my eye more so than removing it.

For £4.49 you get a large 400ml bottle that’s sure to last a while and currently B. Skincare is buy one get one free so why not stock up!

*Suitable for Vegans & Vegetarians 

Superdrug Refreshing Hydrogel Eye Patches

Feeling rough and need a quick way to refresh your under eyes? If you suffer with puffy eyes and dark circles then this might be the product for you! 

Superdrug Hydogel Eye Patches
Within 15 minutes these hydrogel patches will stimulate the skin with sea algae and caffeine making you feel more awake, refreshed and your under eye area will be moisturised in order to hide fatigue and puffiness. 

Superdrug Refreshing Hydrogel Eye Patches
To use the patches you simply take them out of the casing, peel back the one side whilst positioning on the under eye and then removing the final piece of backing to fully reveal the gel patch.
Whilst I don’t tend to suffer with puffiness I do get dark circles and find that after using these patches for 15 minutes my skin does look much brighter and feels slightly tighter. 

A top tip on the sachet is to keep them in the fridge before use. 

You get one set per sachet and they can only be used once but cost just £1.49. 

As always Superdrug products are cruelty free and suitable for vegans and vegetarians. 


Revlon Photoready Insta-Fix Highlighting Stick

If you’re looking for a golden highlighter that’s easy to apply, a drugstore brand and a cream product and not powder then continue reading this post. The Revlon Photoready Insta-Fix Highlighting Stick in Gold Light (what a mouthful) fits the bill perfectly if you’re looking for all of the above.

Revlon PhotoReady Insta-Fix Highlighting Stick

Priced at £9.99 you get a large highlighter which is easy to glide across your cheeks but not really anywhere else but you could always use your finger or a brush… Admittedly I find the packaging rather underwhelming and basic compared to other highlighters on the market.

Revlon Gold Light Highlighting Stick
Direct swatch (Unblended)
The product is a gorgeous colour and buildable to create the desired look, I also like to use it as a base for powder highlighters to make a more intense glow.

Revlon also do a pink toned highlighter in the shade Pink Light but I haven’t tried that one, let me know in the comments if it’s worth picking up.

Overall I would recommend this highlighter if it’s on offer, whilst I do really like it I think £9.99 is a bit pricey when you can buy highlighting palettes for cheaper.


Rimmel London 002 Coral Glow Sculpting Kit

Contour, highlight and add a pop of colour to your face in one handy sculpting kit presented by Rimmel London as part of the Kate Moss collection. There are currently two shades to choose from 002 Coral Glow and 003 Golden Bronze. As far as I’m aware there is not a 001 which is odd to me but I could be wrong (let me know in the comments!). This retails for £6.99.

Rimmel London Sculpting KitRimmel Sculpting Kit

As you can see it’s pretty standard packaging with a window to show off the colours, it’s a decent size for travel, however, it doesn’t contain a brush or mirrors. I like to use the PS Angled Brush from Primark for the contour shade. 

If you are new to contouring then it makes a great starter palette, if however, you use contour a lot then it probably isn’t for you if I’m being honest due to the lack of shade options.

Rimmel Coral Glow Swatches

The powders can easily be built up but you do have to tap a lot of the excess off of your brush, for lack of a better word it is quite ‘powdery’ and as you tap your brush in the palette you can see it starting to come away in the air.

I love the blush colour and find that the contour shade works well for me, its on the warm side so if you use cool toned highlighters then again this isn’t for you. The highlighter is a nice golden shade but personally I think there’s better highlighters on the market.

Rimmel London are against animal testing but I think they’re sold in China where animal testing still takes place so it depends on your personal preferences whether or not you would use this palette.


Makeup Revolution Matte Lip Kits Review

Liquid Lipsticks are more popular than ever thanks to Kylie Jenner, for those of us in the UK the Kylie Jenner make up range isn’t as accessible to get without paying a large custom charge and of course it’s really popular and sells out fast!

Makeup Revolution has thankfully brought out a wide range of colour dupes with their Retro Luxe Matte Lip Kit collection which retail at £6.

Makeup Revolution Lip Kits

This is my first experience using a liquid lipstick so naturally I went for the Nude shades, Echelon is a brown toned nude and Reign is a pink toned nude. I’m not sure why but my boxes do not match each other in terms of text layout… It doesn’t really bother me it just seems odd.

One thing I know people have commented on with these products is that the shade on the box doesn’t match the actually shade inside and I can agree with that so if in doubt always swatch first!

Revolution Lip KitRevolution Liquid Lip Kits

The lip kit contains the liquid lipstick and a lip liner, the lip liners do not match the lipsticks perfectly, however, it isn’t blatantly obvious when the product is on the lips and blended together.  The liquid lipstick as you can see just has your standard lip gloss wand.

Makeup Revolution Lip Kit Swatches

I found the lip liners creamy, very pigmented and glided on, however, my lip liner for Echelon has quite a wobbly tip and looks like it might break so I don’t know if mines just badly made or if they aren’t sturdy in general…

The liquid lipsticks are also very pigmented, comfortable to wear and last throughout the day, they don’t transfer and aren’t drying which is always a bonus.

I absolutely love both colours but Echelon is my favourite of the two!

I would recommend these lip kits if you’re after a matte lip product that lasts throughout the day without needing to re-apply your lipstick. For £6 you can’t go wrong unless you don’t swatch the product first as you may end up with a different colour to what you wanted.

You can purchase these from or from Superdrug

*Update: my Echelon Lip Liner has since broken inside the lid and I’ve barely used, they can be sharpened but mine was damaged beyond repair.
