I do believe the drugstore has come on leaps and bounds with regards to quality and value for money and although not everything is good from one brand alone, there is defiantly some superstars within each, so here's my top five best of the bunch starting with Collection.
Collection are a brand that have been around ever since I can remember, previously named Collection 2000, Collection bring to the market affordable and on trend make-up products, that are both great quality and accessible. You can find Collection at most drugstores within the UK including, Boots, Superdrug, Wilko and Amazon.

2. Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer £4.19 - This popular concealer is another must have in anyone's make-up bag. I love this because it has a creamy consistency, medium coverage and it lasts. It's also the perfect size to pop in you handbag for touch-ups.
3. Collection Glam Crystals £2.99 - If your off out after work and don't have time to completely get ready again, then these crystal eyeliners are perfect to glam up any look. Not only are these a great dupe for the Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Liners, they come in an amazing array of colours and last all night long.
4. Collection Contour Kit £4.19 - The Collection Contour Kit is one of my newest favourites and for a drugstore contour kit this is great value for money, as you get a lot of product. There's a lot to love about this contour kit as both shades apply beautifully, due to their finely milled consistency and the bronzer or sculpt shade is the perfect, non-orange colour for both bronzing and contouring. The highlight shade reminds me of the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powders as you can get away with applying this all over the face, due to it's subtle ethereal glow.
5. Collection Lasting Colour in Rosewood £2.99 - This affordable lipstick is a beautiful flattering nude/taupe that has a creamy consistency and is a great dupe for MAC Velvet Teddy. I was surprised at how pigmented and buttery this lipstick was and with a great colour selection to choose from, how can you not go wrong with these.
