Make Up Haul

Over the past few weeks I haven’t been able to resist the great 3 for 2 offers across all of Superdrug make up and the 3 for 2 on Maybelline make up in boots. I’m very drawn to lipsticks at the moment. It’s a product I used to not even think about considering but lately I’m favouring a bright pink lip. (suggestions on brands and shades to try appreciated!!)

First up Superdrug last week. I was instantly drawn to the Sally Hanson nail shades as I hadn’t seen them before. I’ve only just started noticing Sally Hanson nail polishes in boots and Superdrug. This one is called Glitzy Gal and while the nail seems a bit cheap to me I love the polish. It’s jam packed with glitter and only takes two coats. Will do a NOTD soon. I’m yet to try the look nail pop. This is in the shade kimono a duo chrome nail polish in a khaki and gold shade! 

As I needed to get one more thing I went to the sleek stand. I was disappointed at first as there were none of the blush by 3 palettes and I’d been wanting one for ages! So we opened the draw below and there was one left in the shade Lace. This was the palette I’d wanted so I was pleased. L was with me at the time and also found the palette she wanted. I know you’re not meant to but I do have a quick peek if what I want isn’t on display. I have used the blushes everyday since I got them! I am in love with the colours!

 A quick trip to boots for lunch ended up with these three. I’m definitely not normally a lip gloss girl but a super stay 10 hour lip tint caught my eye. (I was hoping it would be similar to the YSL glossy stains I’m currently lusting over) I will do Lipstick Monday’s with all the lip products. I love love love this gloss. Does it last 10 hours…… No it doesn’t but it’s a gorgeous bright pink shade I’m happy to reapply (Forever Fuschia) I also picked up my favourite mascara ever! Been using it for 3 years now and don’t think it’ll be replaced. I’ve tried lots. And lastly the Maybelline colour pop in Shade 80 cherry pop, this is similar to the topshop cult pink glittery lipstick but gives a gorgeous sweep of red sheer cover and smells amazing like cherries! I’m going back for more colours.

And lastly I picked up two of the Maybelline Dual 24 hour stay lip products (they come with a balm and stain all in one). Can you see a pattern. I was so impressed with the Maybelline lip products. Originally I swatched these on my hand in the morning and had to go back and buy them as they had lasted all day even with lots of hand washing. Unfortunately the lasting power on the lips isn’t quite as good but I still love them and would buy more. I got shades 195(Raspberry) and 510 (Red Passion), a bright pink and cherry red. I also picked up a new gel eyeliner as I’ve almost used my first pot I bought when it first come out. I love this product!

I’ve been spending loads but couldn’t resist a good deal. Plus I’m loving a bright lipstick now the sun is shining. Have you taken advantage of the 3 for 2 offer?

    Nice buys! I picked up some more Lip Butters from Superdrug, very tempted to see if they the Lace palette next time though – they're always sold out! 🙁 x
