1. If you could only use one drugstore brand, what would it be?

Maybelline - It's so easy to create a whole look with their products and they are great quality. Some of their products I love even more than higher end brands.

2. What’s the most underrated drugstore brand?

Essence - I feel like people don't take it seriously because of how cheap it is, but it's seriously so good! Some of the face products are a bit hit or miss but their lip products, eye products and nail polishes are amazing for their price.

3. What’s the most overrated drugstore brand?

E.L.F - People seem to rave about e.l.f products but i've never been super impressed by them. They have some good products but it's nothing special and you can definitely find a lot better at the drugstore.

4. What drugstore brand do you think is overpriced?

Revlon - Maybe it's only in Australia but Revlon products range from $15 for a crappy pencil to $40 on an average foundation. They charge almost high end prices for mediocre drugstore quality items and it's ridiculous.

5. Drugstore brand you used to love but aren’t crazy about anymore?

Rimmel - I used to love Rimmel when I was a teenager but as I got better at makeup I realised their foundation actually looked super cakey and orange. The rest of their products I found I can get better versions from Maybelline.

6. What is a hidden gem from the drugstore that no one talks about?

Maybelline Master Primers - Literally no one has heard of this product and it's crazy because they are so good. They apply beautifully to the skin and create a perfect base for foundation. The hydrating one is also amazing for dry skin.

7. What is a drugstore product everyone talks about that you hate?

Maybelline Great Lash Mascara - I know I love Maybelline products but this is one I hate so much. It is so clumpy and spidery yet everyone seems to love it. It also makes my eyes burn and it smudges everywhere.

8. What’s your favourite drugstore product?

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer - Literally the greatest concealer to ever exist. It blurs all imperfections, covers dark circles and blends flawlessly.

9. What's your least favourite drugstore product?

Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse Foundation - I'm so sorry Maybelline but this product is absolutely awful, unless you want to look like a caked up pumpkin. It's so thick, yet somehow slides around your face and looks so orange.

10. What products do you tend to buy more at the drugstore vs. high-end?

Foundations - Drugstore foundations are so much better than high end foundations and so much more affordable. Why would I spend $60 on a foundation when I could get something just as great for $15?

11. What’s your favourite drugstore dupe?

Australis Fresh and Flawless Powder > MAC Studio Fix Powder - The Australis powder is only $16 and the MAC powder is $55. They have pretty much the same packaging (minus the mirror on the Australis one) and the products feel exactly the same.

12. Drugstore product you didn’t expect to like but totally wowed you?

L'oreal True Match Foundation - I heard so many good reviews about it but I felt like it was just being super overhyped...until I tried it. The formula is so nice, it looks so natural but covers all your blemishes. It really is worth all the hype everyone talks about it.
