I popped into town the other day and spotted that Superdrug had 3 for 2 on all of their makeup… Dangerous! So I got a little spendy and I thought I’d show you what I got from there and Boots!
L’Oreal L’OR Highlighter – £4.99
I’d heard Alix from I Covet Thee on youtube rave about this and I really wanted to try it for myself. I expected it to be much more expensive but I was pleasantly surprised. I haven’t used it on my face yet, but from swatching it, it has an almost velvet texture.
Barry M Matte Lipstick – 179 – £4.99
This is one of the new matte lipsticks from Barry M and I just fell in love with the colour!
MUA Luxe Eyeshadow Palette – Enchanted – £6.00
I can’t get over how pretty this palette is and I’m so excited to try it. It really reminds me of the Hourglass Modernist Eyeshadow Palette but around £50 cheaper! I’m not sure on the quality of the eyeshadows but I’ll keep you updated once I’ve tested it.
Garnier Moisture Bomb Face Mask – 99p
I actually tried this mask the night that I got it and after trying other sheet masks, it is one of my favourites. The product didn’t drip off and go everywhere like others do and it clung to my face so it felt like it was really working. My skin didn’t feel very soft afterwards but it looked very moisturised and brighter. For the price (it’s usual price is £1.49) it’s worth a try if you have dry skin like me.
Max Factor Creme Puff Blush – Gorgeous Berries – £8.99
I haven’t had a berry blush shade before and this just looked so pretty! I’m all about the autumn make up at the moment and this fits in perfectly.
MUA Luxe Glow Beam Liquid Highlight Cushion – £5.00
This is another new release from MUA and it’s a cushion highlight which I’ve never tried before. I have swatched it and it’s quite subtle, but I think it will work well layered under a powder highlight to ensure that it doesn’t budge all day!
NYX Matte Lipsticks – Eurotrash and Tea Rose – £6.50 each
Makeup Obsession Build Your Own Palette – Palette – £6.00 and each pan – £3.00 each
- Top Row from Right to Left – Contour Powder C102 Light, Contour Powder C101 Fair, Highlight H103 Bronze
- Bottom Row from Right to Left – Banana Powder C111, Blush B112 Bloom, Highlight H104 Moon
So Boots now have something called a Makeup Emporium in some of their stores and they have one in Northampton. You can test lots of different makeup they have selected and you can build your own face or eyeshadow palettes. I really wanted to build a face palette so I can take it with me when I travel. They have everything you need from contour powders, blush and the most incredibly pigmented highlighters!
