Small Superdrug Haul / First Impressions


Hi guys,
I’m so sorry I haven’t posted for a few weeks, I’ve just been really busy and lost the rhythm of things… But I’m back and I should be posting regularly again.

Today I have a small drugstore haul / first impressions post for you. If you want any more detailed reviews, please let me know in the comments.

The first item I picked up was the Collection Illuminating Touch Brightening Concealer. I was actually going to pick up the lasting perfection concealer, as my Rimmel Wake Me Up is on its last legs, but they didn’t have it in the right shade for me, so I opted for this one instead. This is a really good high coverage concealer, however, as it is more pink toned I find it works better concealing my dark under eyes than my blemishes. It also has an applicator much like the Touche Eclat concealer by YSL – but I haven’t tried that one so I can’t say if it is a good dupe or not.

I then picked up the Tanya Burr Fairy tale eye palette. This palette has four gorgeous colours, which are perfect for a smoky look.  I am in love with alohamora. They are really pigmented, my only complaint is that they do have quite a lot of fallout, but for the price they are, they’re brilliant. Velvet Cushion is also a really good colour for me to use to fill in my brows, which is a bonus.

Another item I picked up is the Olay Hydration plus BB Cream. When I first used this I loved it, it is really easy to blend and applies really nicely, however, I think that this is giving me a slight reaction (which I have actually found with previous moisturisers) meaning my skin has been getting some really dry patches. So I don’t think I’ll continue using this unfortunately. However if you don’t have sensitive skin, this is a good BB cream as it gives a slight tint and coverage.

Finally, I picked up the Barry M Mani Mask in Birthday Suit. This is a really pretty nude shade, which looks really pretty, but it also strengthens damaged nails. I always find that when I go skiing, the cold means my nails split and just generally don’t look very nice, so I thought I would give this a go. I have used this a couple of time and I have actually noticed a difference in my nails. Another bonus is that as this is quite subtle I am able to wear it at school and with anything.

I hope you liked this post. Let me know if you’ve got any drugstore recommendations :)
