I was out of town this long weekend and had a dinner to attend. I had packed up all my skincare and makeup, but to my horror, when I arrived at my destination, my toiletry case was not in my travel bag!
I wasn’t so keen on appearing at a function with a bare face, and I was in a relatively small town without any major department brands available to me. Not wanting to spend too much money on makeup, I dropped by a pharmacy/drugstore to see what they had.
There was quite a lot available to be honest. I picked up some basics from L’oreal – some of which I already liked and some of which I’d been wanting to try. So, I picked up the basics – foundation, blush and eyeshadow
- L’oreal True Match liquid foundation
- L’oreal Blush Delice blush
- L’oreal Color Appeal eyeshadow quad
I’m happy to report that they turned out to be gems in hiding for they served their purpose well, and looked good too. After a 10% discount (thank goodness for sales! Yay!), the 3 items came up to RM128 plus a free gift of a tote bag and makeup pouch which I gave to my Mom.
I try to do individual reviews for each item in due course but suffice to say that if you need makeup in an emergency, these 3 items are a great drugstore find and will not burn a large hole in your wallet!
