Drugstore Beauty Haul


So I couldn't see my wonderful boyfriend on Valentines day as he's a chef and well he was busy cooking for other lucky lady's haha! To cheer myself up me and one of my oldest girl friends plus her gorgeous little bundle of joy, went for a gossip and a catchup to Frankie & Benny's and kind of ended up in Boots/Superdrug as you do!
(As you can see my gorgeous man is in the reflection of my cleansing balm!)

I haven't opened a lot of these yet but I thought I would just show you all what I bought anyway:)

Rimmel Lasting Finish Foundation - This foundation has been one of my long time favourites for a couple of years now and I haven't seen many other beauty bloggers talk about this one. I love it, it gives great coverage and it's very build-able. It lasts all day with a good powder. I've even done the horrifying "sleeping in your make-up after a wild night out" in this. Oh god, yes I said it, you're all frowning and gasping at me now aren't you! I'm sorry! I got to tell you though, this foundation stays put, I woke up feeling not so fresh but I didn't look half bad haha! Anyway long story short, this foundation is worth a try, the only problem I've always had with this, is the colour. The lightest colour "Ivory" is too "orangey" for me. So when I saw my foundation now came in "light porcelain" I just had to get it! I haven't used it yet, but I'm so excited to try it!

Maybelline Color Tattoo "On and On Bronze, Permanent Taupe & Pink Gold" - Yes surprise surprise, I love these little pots of goodness too. I'm sure you're all bored of hearing about these things, so I'm not going to say too much about them. These are my favourite kind of eye-shadow colours, especially "On and On Bronze" so I thought I'd pick up more. I love these things they're so easy to use on an every day basis as they almost give a whole eye-shadow look in one. Hip Hip Hooray for Color Tattoos!

Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm - Lately I have been on a real mission to find the perfect skincare products for me. Lately my skin has been acting up and has been worse than I have ever seen it before. I have never really been a spotty person, maybe the odd one or two, but not all over everywhere all the time! Lately that's kind of been happening. I've tried Liz Earle and La Roche-Posay, but I haven't had amazing results like everyone else seems to have! I think my problematic skin is mostly due to my work and touching dirty crates, but hey what can you do? I thought I'd try this cleansing balm after hearing a few people have really got on well with it. I'm excited to try this one and I'm sure you'll hear about how I get on with this, "fingers crossed".

Origins Super Spot Remover - On my quest on finding the perfect skin care, I came across this little pot. First of all come on, the name says it all, of course we're going to buy something called "Super Spot Remover" Spot Remover, yes please! I was watching a skin routine video, I cant remember who's exactly, but it could of been Essie Button's? She said that she used this and the next morning her spot is literally gone, so I just knew I had to give this a go, it sounds magical! I used this last night and honestly, about an hour after putting this on I already felt like my spots were dramatically reduced! I'm hoping this little gem will lead to great things in the future!

Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder - I'm going to start off by saying I have never used this powder, yes that's right, I have never used this cult classic powder! So I'm giving it a go! You may be wondering, how is it that you have never used this powder that is loved and raved about by every beauty blogger & their aunt!? Well I have just never got round to it, I've been using Max Factor's Creme Puff as my powder for ages and it really gives me a flawless, long lasting finish that I have never really questioned. Until now, I've gave in, I'm giving this bad boy a go!

Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm "Demure" - Of course any Revlon lip product is a must have. So I was excited to see these new lacquer balms in store after loving the original balms. I only picked up one this time on my little trip even though they were on a tempting 3 for 2! This is a gorgeous sparkling light pink, that I thought would be perfect for everyday/summer looks. I haven't tried this one yet but I'm very excited to. I'm sure I wont be disappointed and it wont be long before I have the whole range in my collection.

Beauty UK Simply Define Eyebrow Pencil - This last one was a complete impulse buy. I have never bought anything from this brand in Superdrug & I didn't even try out the colour for this one before buying. I just picked it up and off I went to the till with my random pencil. This was only like £1.99 so I thought why not just give it a go, what could go wrong, so yes, I'm intrigued to use this one.

So that's what I picked up on my little trip to Boots and Superdrug. I hope you have enjoyed reading this, sorry about the lack of photo's but I'm sure I'll post more about these later on.

Have you tried any of these products?


  1. Well, that's a lot of stuff you have bought! :)
    I'm thinking to buy the Stay Matte too, as I have never used it but I've heard so many good reviews on the internet!

    1. It's more fun buying a few more things hehe!:)
      You should, it's only like £4 you can't really go wrong! I'm gunna try it out for the first time tomorrow, I'll let you know what I think! x

    2. I actually found it even for less on asos.com

    3. I love finding a good bargain! I'm really loving this powder, it stay's put, doesn't alter your colour, adds a lil coverage. You can't go wrong:) x

  2. I've never used the Stay Matte either, been on my list to try for a while considering the hype. Let me know how you get on!

    1. I used it yesterday and I'm really impressed! It helps give a lil bit extra coverage and really stays put I think:) x

  3. I almost picked up the Rimmel powder on my last shopping trip. Everyone seems to love it so much! I am going to have to get it.
