Superdrug Haul

Hello my lovelies!

On Sunday I quickly popped into Superdrug to grab some essentials but ended up spending a lot of time and money there, so I decided that I would show you all what I bought!

Superfruits Exfoliating Mask, Chocolate Orange Self-Heating Mask,
Apricot Exfoliating Mask, Cucumber Cooling Clay Mask, Rimmel
Stay Matte Powder, MUA Lipstick Shade 3, Baby Lips Peach Kiss
MUA Pro-Brow Eyebrow Kit, Revlon Colorburst, Collection Lasting
Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer

The product that I actually went into buy was the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer. I know I have raved about this concealer for a long long time but it is seriously the best one - I've tried many others but have always ended up crawling back to my trusty old friend. If you have never tried it before you don't know what you're missing. It has fantastic coverage, lasts all day and you could even use it as a foundation if you wanted to.

I use the shade Fair 01; this is as I am fairly light skinned and any other colour comes out really really orange in comparison to my skin.

Rimmel Stay Matte Powder

The Rimmel Stay Matte is another of my regular purchases and has a permanent place in my make-up bag. For months this powder has prevented my face from shine, helped to better conceal my pores and has also made my face feel silky smooth! I feel that this is a must have for every girl who wears make-up and is a very affordable for its quality.

The colour I use is 005 silky beige; it adds a tad more colour to my face than my foundation does, and if I am having a good skin day I will wear this powder with just concealer. This is as I find it works just as well but allows my skin to breathe.

 MUA Pro-Brow Ultimate Eyebrow kit

In my last drugstore haul I mentioned that I was new to filling in my eyebrows, but I have gotten used to the whole deal-io now and fill them in on a daily basis. I found my Maybelline Mastershape eyebrow pencil that I used previously wasn't doing a great job and often rubbed off in a matter of hours, so I've been on the look-out for a better product for a while.

I had my eye on this but refrained from buying it the last time I was in Superdrug but this visit the temptation was too much for me and I gave in to my shopaholic tendencies.

There are two main shades that you can use to fill in your eyebrows, a dark brown and a light brown (verging on blonde) and the kit also includes a highlighter (bottom left) that you can sweep under your brow bone to lift your face and also further define your brows. I think that the highlighter could also be used for people with very very light blonde eyebrows but I personally think that it is too light to use. There is also a clear gel included in the set which you apply to your eyebrows after you shade them in so that the colour will set and your perfect looking brows will last as long as possible.

Also included in the set is a handy little pair of mini tweezers so you can quickly remove any unwanted strays, and a double sided angled brush. I would recommend that you use one side for shading and the other side for the gel as when applied on the brush the gel can be a bit sticky!

What I love most about this set is that it is very small so you can quickly pop it in your bag and also has a handy mirror which is a very good size for when you're out and about.

MUA Lipstick

I have always overlooked these lipsticks whenever in Superdrug because I always presumed that they wouldn't be very good quality, I mean for £1 you never really get much do you? So you can understand why I was always unsure, but now that I have purchased one I take all of my previous thoughts and doubts back because frankly, these are amazing!

Firstly the colour I bought (shade 3) was absolutely gorgeous, it's not as intense in colour as shown in these pictures but its still pretty bright.

When I applied this to my lips I found that it doesn't transfer to your lips unless they are completely dry. This made me a bit nervous as I expected it to make my lips feel horrid and dry when applied but lucky it made  my lips feel deliciously moisturised and also super soft! I also just love the sheen it has!

It has the usual lipstick smell and doesn't really taste of anything, thank god. In my experience if a lipstick ever tastes of anything it is in the flavour of ew or gross.

For a lipstick that cost me only £1 I'm very impressed and I will definitely be taking a trip back to Superdrug soon to pick up some more colours!

Another awesome thing about this product is that there is a secret lip-gloss hiding underneath the lipstick, at first I though it was just the colour indicator that most lipsticks have but then I got curious and twisted it. 
For me that alone makes it worth at least double the price!

Baby Lips Peach Kiss

Yet again a Baby Lips is featured on my blog, Surprise surprise!

If you didn't already know, but I'm sure you do, I'm a hardcore baby lips addict. I was going to buy another one too but I found I had sadly run out of money. Where-ever I go I take one or two baby lips with me, be it school, shopping or even when I go to see my horse!

The Baby Lips I chose to buy this time was Peach Kiss, which many of my friends have constantly raved about and insisted I bought. I usually love peach flavoured balms and as all the other baby lips I own taste gorgeous I expected big things from this!

The purchase of this lip balm meant that I now own every flavoured baby lips (Minty Fresh, Pink Punch, Cherry Me and Peach Kiss) but I'm still going for the whole set!

Peach kiss has a lovely light peachy colour which verges on nude and also has a very slight shimmer - and if you didn't already know I'm a sucker for shimmer! Believe it or not it tastes like a lovely and sweet peach and has quickly become my joint favourite with pink punch!

The next Baby Lips I'm going to buy is definitely the Baby Lips Balm Repair as its SPF 20 and will better protect my lips on those *hopefully* hot and sunny summer days!

Revlon ColorBurst Lacquer Balm - Coquette

I have been very excited about trying out the Revlon ColorBurst range and it seems lots of other people were too; when I went into store they were almost completely out! The two I have been interested in trying ever since they were launched were Vivacious and Coquette but Vivacious was one of the balms that were sold out so I had to buy Coquette!

The packaging its in really reminds me of those Jumbo Pencils that you used to get in Primary School and is overall very pretty. Its made of a sort of mirrored plastic that is supposed to mimic the colour of the balm inside.

What's great about this product is that there is no need to sharpen it when it gets low because the base twists to reveal more of it!

Coquette is a medium, verging on hot, pink that suits my skin tone very well, but as it is a medium pink I believe it would suit most skin tones. The photos I took here don't really do Coquette justice so I will have to make sure I do a in depth review with some pretty pictures of it so I show it in the best light - literally. The balm also has very small shimmery silver bits in it, and like I said previously, if it shimmers Claire loves!

The balm leaves a lovely glossy finish but the shimmer isn't really that noticeable :( Yet I can't complain as the balm is still amazing, even if it isn't that shimmery. It is very moisturising, softening and also feels virtually weightless on your lips. It has a very light peppermint smell and taste but it isn't overpowering. 

I love the pencil-like form of the tip as it makes applying the balm very quick, accurate and easy. The only real down side about this balm is the price, it cost me £7.99, but in all fairness, you do get what you pay for!

Superdrug Face Masks

I love putting on a face mask and relaxing after a long week at school or otherwise, so I'm always looking out for a bargain, and these masks were one! They were 99p each but there was a  4 for 3 offer on so I naturally bought 4. Those four were:

I'm really looking forward to using these and if I like them I'm definitely going to buy more! I am most looking forward to the Chocolate Orange Self-Heating Mask as I love chocolate and I love facemasks so a combination of the two is a dream come true for me!
