I am a slight makeup snob and prefer my more expensive makeup brands to drugstore ones. However, lately I have been enjoying some of the drugstores new releases, which has inspired me to hunt out a few other things among the shelves of my local drugstores; Boots and Superdrug.
Everything here was under £10, and not all bought on the same day. It also helps when drugstores have all of their amazing offers on; usually 3 for 2 or buy 1 get the other half price; so money was saved.
I have three things from Rimmel, and they’re all things that I have fancied trying for a while. The first was inspired by Love Shelbey’s recent drugstore vs high end video where she used the new Kate Moss Contour Kit in Coal Glow. This is a really beautiful palette and is beautifully pigmented for everyday gorgeous cheek bones.
The next two were impulse buys which I haven’t tried yet as of writing this post. The first is the Rimmel Kiss Proof Lip Colour in Little Minx, which is a hot pink shade. These are supposed to be really long lasting so I’ll be interested in seeing how it lasts. The other item is the Exaggerate Undercover Shadow Primer, which I have heard really good things about, so I’m interested to see how well this works with some of my eyeshadows.
Soap & Glory
I did purchase quite a few items from Soap & Glory this month. They have had a new lipstick launch within their Sexy Mother Pucker range. They have two new finishes in Satin and Matte, ranging from nudes, pinks and reds. I wasn’t that keen on the nude shades but I loved the pinks and reds. I bought You Say Tomato, Pommie Girl and Rosy Chic. I will do a full review on these soon.
One Boots actually had all of their Soap & Glory marked half price and on a buy 1 get one half price offer so they cost about £1.50 each, these next items. I actually repurchased the Supercat Liner, which is a lovely super black liquid liner. I also got the Kick Ass Concealer Kit, which I have wanted to try for ages. I also got the Pillow Plump Lip Glosses in Nude in Town and Pinkwell. They are gorgeous colours but the tingling sesation takes some getting used to!
The other item I bought was a brow pencil. This is their new 2 in 1 Brow Sculpting Crayon. It’s actually amazing.
I wish Tanya Burr would stop making Revlon look so tempting! If you saw her latest Wedding Makeup Tutorial, you will know what I bought. I purchased the Colorstay Foundation, which I actually love. I also got the new Ultra HD Matte Lip Colour in Seduction. This is such a gorgeous colour!
I only bought one thing from Makeup Revolution, but it’s amazing! I bought their new Fortune Favours the Brave. 30 Eyeshadows that are so creamy and so blendable. I love this palette. I will do a full review and swatches very soon! But I have used this palette a lot in some Instagram photos lately.
I did buy two items from maybelline but only one is mine. I bought a foundation for my Mam, whcih she loves. I got myself the Colorsensational Lipstick in Pink Fling. It’s a really pretty light pink shade. It’s really cute.
And that is everything in this ‘small’ drugstore haul. What have you guys spoiled yourself with recently?
Have a great day.
