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😌

Collective Superdrug Haul!

Hello my lovelies! Over the past few weeks i have been accumulating quite a bit of makeup products so i thought i’d throw them in together for a haul for you!

Everything in this haul has been purchased by me from superdrug, it is mainly MakeUp Revolution products but there are some MUA and other products too. Let’s get started!

Processed with VSCO

I’ll start with the non makeup revolution products first, I picked up the MUA ‘Undress me too’ eye shadow palette, I’ve swatched a couple of these and I am so happy with how pigmented they are and the formula is lovely. I honestly can’t wait to see what looks i can create with the golden shades. Also from MUA i got one of there single eye shadows, i absolutely love this colour and again it’s so so pigmented.

The final things i got from the MUA section were a black pencil eye liner and a glitter eye liner pencil, these were only £1 each and i use eyeliners everyday so i thought i might as well pick one up. I also find these ones more useful as they have a sharpener in the lid, i always lose my actual sharpener so its nice to have one there all the time.0724bb1b-69c2-4d35-8cf1-26085f10c426.jpg

The next two things are a pink toned Highlighter by Freedom Makeup and Candy Blush by w7. Both of these products are pretty good quality for the price of them, i love the way the highlighter looks with the pink tones in it, it really adds a great finish to a look.

Now for the big one, Makeup Revolution products from. Makeup revolution is typically my go to superdrug brand i have sooo many of their products and i love all of them. So lets get started!

The first Make up revolution product is their Lip Lava in the shade Tremor (i believe) , i wanted to buy one to try out the formula as i’m yet to find a lip product that i love. I think this product is their take on the too faced melted lipsticks because they look quite similar and MR also have a molten chocolate collection which i’m presuming is their take on the too faced melted chocolate range. I actually really like this product, though the shade doesn’t look right on me but the formula is pretty good for the price and overall i was really happy with it. I’m still trying to find a lip product that works well for me and a shade to suit me…what’re your favourite go to matte lipsticks/liquid lipsticks? I’d love for you to let me know!

Now for the big one, i purchased the Makeup Revolution 12 Days of Christmas box and my god it’s amazing! For £35 to get £75 worth of stuff you can’t really go wrong can you? Here’s what comes in the box…

First thing i pulled out it the Fixing spray, i’m actually really happy this was in there because i’ve never used a fixing spray before as i don’t tend to wear that much makeup on my face but i’m looking forward to see how well this works!

The box also comes with a Aqua Priming spray, which again i was really pleased to have as i love using primers and the effect they have on looks..hopefully it does it the trick! Speaking of primers, you also get the focus and fix eye primer. This one i’ve actually used before because i got it in a gift set they did last year so i already know its really good and i’m super glad to get a new one because mines running low. Plus the packaging though!

Now onto the eye products, you get 3 eye palettes (two eyeshadow ones and an eyebrow palette). I have to say when I purchased a gift set last year, the quality of the palette was quite disappointing but these two are amazing! I don’t know if they have changed their formula or anything but the colours are way more pigmented and actually come out the colour they should be. Both palettes have their share of cool and warm tones and have some autumnal colours too which i absolutely love. Below is a few swatches of two colours from each palette using the tool they come with. If you would like a swatches or maybe a look i could create please just comment below i would be happy to do so!

I’m really excited to try out the brow palette too! I’m not a makeup expert and i dont really do my brows like most people do but im really excited to try it out! So in this palette you get four eyebrow powders, two creams, a wax, a cream highlighter and two powder highlights. Honestly everything you need for your brows is in this palette!

Face products, and there’s plenty! So lets stay with blush and highlight. In this box you get a powder blush palette and honestly it’s stunning and the colours are definitely very pigmented! You also get a cream highlight palette and seriously guys, 8 didfferent highlighters, there’s no reason for you to not look like a pretty little glazed donut!

Finally for the contouring, okay so you get a ultra contour stick and a ultra highlight stick, i haven’t tried these out yet and i’m not very good at the whole contouring thing but i can try so i can give you my opinion! Both are double ended but on the contour you get one dark contouring shade and one highlighting shade. (sorry about the pictures! need to work out a good background and decent lighting!)

And the final item are lip products! You get three nudes shades of lip glosses, when i swatched them on my hand the colours were gorgeous but obviously it’s lipgloss and so when you apply it to your lips, the colour tends to be more sheer, but they still seem to be amazing!

I’m sorry for such a dragging post, but this is my collective superdrug haul! If you have any questions about anything featured on here then please don’t be afraid to ask in the comments! Hope you enjoy the read 😀 

P.s I’m really sorry for the shocking quality of the photos I am trying to work out was i can use as a better background and get better lighting! 

Also i’ll be doing a giveaway soon so keep an eye out for it!

GlossyBox Unboxing! November 2016

Hey there my lovelies!

Today’s post is an un-boxing of my first ever Glossybox! I was very excited to receive it, i love a good surprise especially when its beauty related! For those of you who don’t know what glossybox is, it’s a subscription box that is £10 per month plus p&p. You can sign up for a monthly plan, a 3 month plan, 6 month plan or a 12 month plan. Which every subscription you chose, you’ll receive a box each month with 5 health and beauty items that have a total value that’s more than the cost of the box.

What did i get in my box?

2016-11-21 12.27.24 1.jpg

First thing i saw were some ‘Look so natural’ lashes by the brand Kiss, these retail at £4.95 and, for those who wear them, would be a great treat to receive in the box. I, however, probably won’t be wearing them and will likely be giving them away in a giveaway at some point!

The next thing i pulled out was a trio pack of Quattro for women raspberry rain disposable razors. These retail at £5.69 for 3. They have 4 blades and a pivoting head to make shaving easier, if i’m honest i was actually really happy to see these as funny as it sounds. Every girl needs some decent razors right?

Next is an eye shadow pencil by De Bruyere Beaute, in the shade Bubble 07 (what a great name?!) It’s a khaki grey shade, super pigmented and shiny with a creamy formula. This product retails at 15 euros, which is about £12.73. I can’t wait to create a look with this.

Fourth item in the box is a Tapered blending brush by Ruby professional, retailing at 8 euros which is £6.80 roughly, this is a super affordable brush and well…you can’t have too many brushes can you? From touch this feel like a really good quality brush, its soft but firm which is good for blending. You could also use this brush for nose contouring, it’ll definitely come in handy.

 

Finally, the last item was the most expensive one and i’m quite excited to try out and review. It’s a Bio Cellulose facial treatment mask by 111skin, is retails at £20 so to get this in my box was really exciting. From what i can gather its a sheet that you put on you face that hydrates and locks in moisture to your skin. I can’ wait to try this one out!

Processed with VSCO

So that’s what i got from my November box, considering it was my first one i’m very pleased with everything i got and will most likely be continuing the subscription. If you’d like to subscribe simply go here. You can unsubscribe at any point!

Heres what the card in my box said about next months…

December Sneakpeek: Next month, our gift to you is the chance to pick your own box. Our beauty elves have been busy creating two seasonal makeup looks for you to choose from and both are as chic as each other. Keep an eye on your inbox for more details.

Hope you liked the post! 

Until next time,
