Boots & Superdrugs
I think these 2 stores are the most popular as they have almost every drugstore beauty products you need and from my observations, these are the brand that you may keep an eye on or do some research on:
(in no particular order)
Rimmel (think now they have counter in HK, and readers from the States must have seen this in drugstores)
Balm Balm (sadly, only lip balm available in bigger Superdrugs or Boots)
Bourjois (though i know they have their 1st shop in HK)
E45 skincare range
Simple Skincare Range
and the following are exclusive to Superdrugs
BeautyUK (I only heard good reviews for their eyeshadow palette)
Amine Organic for younger skin
The following are exclusive to Boots
(Note: apparently for readers in the States, pop into your local Target, they have lots of Boots products when I was in Boston, this applies to all the exclusive to Boots brands below, as they are own by Boots)
Boots Traditional Skin care range (as I can't find any photos online, so I have to used mine instead @.@)
Botanics Skincare range
Prestige (readers from the States must have seen this in drugstores lol)
Boots Everyday Essential Cucumber skincare line
Tea Tree + Witch Hazel Skincare Range (suggested by theztyle.com blogger Birdy)
And for Boots store that are bigger in size (I will note this in my next post for Boots store location)
Ruby & Millie
Urban Decay (it's much cheaper in the States, so mainly for Asia buyers, I suppose.)

Also here the list of brand that you may have a look at if you are interested as some of the products may not available in your local area due to different marking policy for these international company. Or some of the brands here are the ones that now available aboard as far as I concern, but slightly more costly to get.
Sanctuary Spa Covent Garden
La Roche Posay
Good Skin Lab
Yes to Carrot
