Superdrug and Boots Haul

Tuesday, 23 August 2011
Hiya,

I am finding it really difficult to post these days but I will definitely be getting back in to it by mid-September. Two weeks ago I was at Boots and Superdrug and picked up what I wanted before I started my spending ban.

I needed a new deodorant so picked up the Garnier one that has just come out. So far it seems to be doing the job, although I'm not that fussy with them usually!

I have heard a lot about the Boots Botanics Eye Makeup Remover and so got this. I haven't tried it yet as I am trying to finish an older one but I have high hopes! The Herbal Essences Shampoo was just a necessity which I purchased.

I wanted a summery smelling body mist and after seeing a post about the Natural Collection ones by Pyari Beauty I had to get it. It smells amazing and is perfect to spritz on, on a hot summers day.. although I have yet to experience a decent one here!

Next, the much talked about BB Cream that was launched in the UK recently. I really wanted to try this and I am so glad I did.

I have used this a few times now and am loving it! I don't have much discolouration on my face and don't always need a medium/full coverage foundation. This is fabulous for the days when I want to quickly put some make up on. It blends very well too. I will probably do a full review on it once I have used it for a while.

The Cream Puff's by Collection 2000 have been talked about so much recently. I wondered what they were all about- pretty impressed so far!

I can't go in to Superdrug and not check out the MUA section. Meadowhall still has not put up the Professional line yet but I live in hope! I saw a set of three MUA shadows on sale for 99p which I had to get of course! Sadly, the one I wanted the most was smashed so that left me with two.

Getting home I realised I already have the darker shade. I guess it was still worth it for the pretty light purple shade.

I used the £5 voucher I had, at the No7 counter in Boots. This brush was £7.50 so for £2.50 it was a bargain! It is a pretty good eyeshadow/blending brush too!
The much hyped Pout Paints by Sleek were in stock and so I had to get these. They were also on offer at 3 for 2 so I took advantage.
Left to right: Port, Peachy Keen, Minx




I absolutely adore the shade in 'Port'! It is so beautiful! I will be experimenting a lot with these once I get the opportunity.

I have been on a ban for the last week or so but I have plenty to play around with now!

  15. I was in Superdrug today and there was a lot of umming and ahhing about the BB cream. I swatched it on my hand and it felt amazing but I knew I'd just end up having to use a tonne of concealer.

    I have the bontanics eye make up remover and its great.. takes of all my makeup but it leaves my skin feeling so greasy so you might want to cleanse after using it.

    Love the No 7 blending brush.. I have two now!
