Drugstore Beauty Haul!

Hello there my lovelies, long time no post right? Well I’m back and today I have a lovely haul for you all because these are my favourite posts to write and fave videos to watch on YouTube! I popped into Superdrug last week and picked up almost a full face of new products that I haven’t tried before! However my heart sunk when I got to the till thinking I don’t spent £50 and the cashier said £90. But at least if got plenty to blog about!!

First up I’ll do all the bits from Makeup Revolution because they’re the majority of this haul. I’ve been such a big fan of their products for so long now, at least 3 years! It’s so nice to watch them improve and grow, I have enough of their products to have my own pop up shop!

So I picked up the Revolution Pro full cover camouflage foundation in the shade F2, I’ve been keen to try this for a while now. I usually use the L’Oreal true match foundation but I found it quite drying and it tends to oxidise to a shade that’s not really my colour. I also picked up the Revolution Pro pressed powder, again I’ve been dying to try it out, I have a loose setting powder at the moment but I feel like the pressed powders are more travel friendly and convenient. Next i have the Revolution Pro Lip scrub, I love lip scrubs and I’m keen to see how this one works! I picked up the Makeup Revolution Ultra Pro HD Powder Contour kit, I was looking to get one because I’ve been using the Nip&Fab one but I find the colours a little to warm for my pale face. I got the Revolution Pro Illuminate which is a stunning highlight, I used it today and I’m in love!! I then picked up The Revolution Pro lipstick collection in The Matte Noire collection. I have to say I swatched these after I got home and the formula was not what I was hoping , which is unusual because their single lipsticks and liquid lipsticks are actually really good! I picked up the Revolution Pro Hydrating Primer and you guys, I was SO happy to see this because I have such dry skin and most primers don’t really tend to do anything and my foundation sticks to my dry patches but I’m really hoping this improves that! The last two things from Makeup Rev. Are the brow pomade in Blonde, and the duo brow definer because ive been trying to find different ways of doing my brows as I was getting annoyed with my brow powder. So that was the Makeup Rev. side of things now onto the rest.

 

 

 

I then picked up a new bronzer and blush from MUA which I can’t wait to try the next time I do my full face!

Skincare and nails

I also decided I needed to expand my skincare range as I don’t tend to look after my face too much after taking makeup off etc. I found some bits that I’m praying do my skin some good. So I found these cleansing pads from the Vitamin C range in Superdrug and they’re actually really good! They smell amazing and feel really refreshing on the eyes and they’re much better for you skin than baby wipes. I recommend!! Then I discovered the Calm Skin range and HAD to try some bits so I picked up the Soothing Facial Cleanser, Refreshing Mist and the 2 in 1 serum and moisturiser. I haven’t tried them yet but I will be soon so if you’d like a review then comment below! Of course I had to pick up some sheet masks, I got the Garnier Moisture bomb mask and the Moisture Bomb Eye sheet mask which looks like a superhero’s mask (lowkey the reason I picked it up). I’ve tried the full face sheet mask before so I know it’s really good already but I’m hoping the eye one does wonders as most of my dry patches are on and around my eyes. And finally I picked up and new Barry M nail varnish in the shade “Black Cherry” (I think) because i felt like I needed a new colour.

 

So that’s my Superdrug haul I’ll be purchasing some bits on Friday so if you’d like another haul then let me know! If you’d like any reviews, tips or swatches for any of the products above then please feel free to comment below! I’d love to hear from you😌

Marc Jacobs Beauty X John Lewis Un-boxing and Review

Hey guys! Hope you’re all doing well and having a good start to the year. This post is very exciting to me because its a review on the Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner Matte Gel Eyeliners. I was SO excited when i found out i was going to be receiving these in the post it was like Christmas all over again!

Marc Jacobs Highliners retail and £20 each but honestly i think they’re so worth it. There’s 12 shades all together, all amazing looking shades. I received the colours ‘Earthquake’ and ‘Pink of Me’ and both are so pigmented, Earthquake is slightly more pigmented as you can expect from the darker of the shades but both are still very pigmented. I am honestly in LOVE with these eyeliners, the formula is so creamy, they just glide on and they’re so long wearing once they set. You could literally cry all day and walk through a rainstorm and they wouldn’t budge and add such a nice pop off colour to your looks.

The only downside to these is that they’re twist up pencils so you cant really sharpen them, meaning that it’s harder to produce more precise looks like winged eyeliner when the tip becomes less pointed. Other than that pointer, these guys are flawless in my eyes and i am so so grateful and happy i got to try them out.

 

 

*Disclosure, I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes*

Hope you guys enjoyed this post and I’ll be back again soon!

Ebay finds!

Hello everybody!

I haven’t done a beauty post for a while so i thought i’d do one today and since i purchase two items recently i thought it would be the perfect chance to do a post.

I’ve seen a lot of ebay find videos on youtube and they were quite popular, hopefully you guys enjoy my blog post! I purchased an eye shadow palette and four eye make up brushes, both of the products i am very pleased with. Anyways let’s get talking about them!

Okay, so the first item was this amazing 120 colour eye shadow palette. Now, unfortunately the postman did not read the fragile sign on the parcel and literally chucked the parcel through the letter box making two colours smash 😦 but i fixed them! I got the more neutral toned palette but you can get another, very vibrant version full of all the colours in the rainbow if you wish! This one was only £5.00 which i thought was amazing for the amount of colours you get, the quality is amazing too! All the colours are very pigmented and there’s both matte and shimmery colours! I’m really looking forward to see what looks i can create with this one!

The other item i got was these beautiful rose gold eye brushes, with white and pink hair. I am in love with these brushes, i love rose gold things and these brushes are just so pretty! And for the cheap price of £1.58 too! i was amazed! They feel good quality too, they’re soft but not too soft, the small one are a bit tougher which is exactly how you’d expect them to be. I really can’t wait to use these to create some pretty eye looks.

Product Review:Flawless Palette by Make up Revolution

 Hey guys! Happy Monday! Hope you’re all doing well and if your win school/college I hope you’re coping with exams well! 🙂

 So here it is, my review post on the Flawless palette by Make Up revolution! 

 I got this for Valentine’s Day from my boyfriend and oh my goodness I’ve not stopped using  it! It’s so pigmented and varies from light colours to dark shadowy colours so you create some amazing looks! There’s also a very shimmery shade 4 in on the top row from the left, it’s the most pigmented, it could be used as an eye highlighter honestly it’s gorgeous! My favourites for when I got it were the coppery colours but now I like the golds and shimmery Browns! 

 I would definitely recommend this product and it’s affordable too! At only £8 I think! You can buy it from ether super drug or here … Make Up Revolution

 The only problem I would say is that the formula for some of them is a little creamier I tho k because my copper shade doesn’t crumble when I use it, it just goes shiny and smooth and doesn’t go onto the brush well…not really sure why! Also some of the colours need to be tested before use because they come out a lot darker than they look, but other than these minors I would say it’s a very practical and affordable product! 

Thank you for reading, I hope it’s given enough research for you!

Product Review: Garnier Cleasning Water

10169115

Hello everybody! It’s me again, i thought this week i would do a product review, exciting huh? So basically i’m constantly using wipes to remove my makeup (gasp!) and it makes my skin really sore after a while, I went into superdrug a few days ago and picked up the Garnier Cleansing Water. Now it’s my holy grail of cleansers, it’s so easy to use, all you need to do is put a little bit on a cotton pad and wipe away and voila! No rinsing under water. The best part i found was that the make up comes of so easily so you don’t need to scrub until your face is red raw, it also hasn’t affected my skin in any negative ways either! No breakouts, no sensitivity, nothing! How brilliant is that? If you have dry skin they have another one for that too!

Honestly I would suggest this product to anyone, it’s a real must have! Check it out for yourselves! 🙂
