I had some birthday money to spend so of course I headed straight to Superdrug to get my make up fix! The main point of the trip was because all my make up had started to run out at the same time (waah) so I was picking up some of my favourites and a couple of extras too. So I thought you might like to have a looksie. Brace yourselves for a lot of photos and a fair bit of text.
I really like this moisturiser as it helps combat my oily skin. It's a lovely consistency and it absorbs quickly, leaving my skin feeling smooth. It makes a nice base for make up too.
This is my favourite lip balm and I've been using it for years , its the best one I've used as it leaves my lips soft and well moisturised. I much prefer a stick lip balm than a pot as I don't like applying it with my fingers.
On to make up!
I used to use this concealer a few months ago until I came across the Rimmel 'Lasting Finish' Concealer (Review HERE). I've got a bit bored of using the Lasting Finish so I've gone back to the True Match as I like the consistency and the coverage. It also has a doe-foot applicator which I think is handy for applying under the eyes.
I can't wait to use the highlighter; to be honest I've been looking for a powder highlighter for a while and I was hoping I'd find one from MUA or Make Up Revolution but I had no such luck in my Superdrug (I'll keep looking though as I will not be beaten!) but I had a look at the Barry M Radiant Rod Highlighter a while ago, but I couldn't resist it this time! I love the crayon style as I think it gives more controlled application.
I'm going to start straight away by saying how sad I am that you can no longer purchase the original Maybelline Gel Eyeliner *cries*. Might have to buy it online in future! I think the consistency is different with this one, the brush is huge and imprecise and I never use the smudger. Never the less I must soldier on, there's really nothing wrong with this eyeliner, it's a really good eyeliner, I'm just bitter haha! I love the jet black colour, the consistency is smooth and it lasts for hours; by the end of the day, my make up may have melted off my face but my eyeliner is still on point.
I love these mascaras, I always go back to them. If you read my blog post " How To Achieve Long, Thick Lashes" (HERE) you'll have seen two of these before.
I love Miss Manga as it adds loads of volume, Lash Sensational is great because it has a spoon-shaped brush and catches every lash and No Clumps is perfect as it has lots of little teeth so you can really build length and volume and roll the brush to get all the product off the brush.
They're my holy grail mascaras and they're excellent on their own and used together. I literally cannot express how much I love these mascaras!
Lastly is Nail Varnish.
I've been looking for a nude nail varnish for ages now but I never know quite what to choose as nudes vary so much; there's creamy nudes, pinky nudes, browny nudes (said 'nudes' too many times...) etc, but this one stood out to me. It's a peachy colour and I think it looks very classy.
The consistency is lovely and it has a pearlescent sheen to it, so it isn't a glossy finish, nor a matte finish and it dries quickly too.
Hope you enjoyed the haul, let me know if you love/hate any of these products by leaving me a comment!
