Superdrug Haul/NOTD

Hi my Hunnies. It's Monday BOOOOOOOOOOOO!! Bring on the weekend. I thought it might be nice to show you some of my recent Superdrug purchases. I actually bought these items on about three occasions so I thought I would compound it into one lovely haul. I am going to start off with the nail products I picked up.

L-R: Beauty UK Shatter Polish in Night Fever (No 6) £2.99, Rimmel London Stronger Try Harder Double Duty Base Coat £4.59 & Barry M Nail Paint in Spring Green (290) £2.99

I wanted to try out the shatter polish so I gave it a go with a nail polish that I had already. It is the shade Chocolate from retailing at £1.50. I love the effect of crackle polishes. I also used the base coat here. It was a thick enough consistency for a good base and dried quickly so I was able to apply polish straight away. I love Barry M Nail Paints so I know the Spring Green will be a great polish. Now on to the lip products.

Beauty UK Lip Lusts in L-R: Office Chic (No 11), Office Chic (No 11) & St Tropez (No 1)

Beauty UK Lip Lusts in L-R: Office Chic (No 11) & St Tropez (No 1)

Blended Out As Above

These were on a 3 for 2 offer. I bought two of the same colour as I really like the shade Office Chic so I got one free :) These are usually £2.99 each so I got 3 for £5.98. I love the consistency and the fantastic glitter particles.

Make Up Academy Lipgloss in Tube 2 £1.00

Swatch As Above 

Blended Out As Above

I saw this great lip gloss and straight away thought of the Illamasqua Sheer Lipgloss In Explode that I missed out on in the July GlossyBox which retails at £13.00 Link :)

I admit that I haven't seen this Illamsqua lipgloss up close and personal, but I think this may give a similar effect when you want to add a nice sheer colour over the top of your lipstick or if you just want to wear it alone for something more subtle. From looking at swatches online I believe that the Illamasqua lipgloss is maybe more on the paler side with slightly less shimmer, but I still think that this MUA lip gloss could give you a very similar effect for £12.00 less.

I am a little gutted though as when I saw the MUA lip gloss the tester was this colour, but all the ones to buy were a more vivid pink shade with the same tube number. I asked the assistant at Superdrug to see if she could help, but we came to the conclusion that they had changed the shade? I then tried my local high street and the same thing, but they did have this last tube hidden in their make-up drawer. I was so happy :) Here is the Superdrug website for you to see the new colour of this shade Link :)

Accessorize With-Love Primer £9.00

This product claims to help even out skin tone while reducing shine. Also, improving foundation application and helping in minimising skin imperfections. It also claims that make-up lasts longer and skin is left feeling velvety smooth all day.  

I have been using my Clarins Beauty Flash Balm for a good couple of years now and I do love it, but like anyone I am always striving to help my skin and make-up look their best so I thought it might be nice to try this face primer from Accessorize. I last bought my Beauty Flash Balm from for £20.99. 

I was testing out make-up the other day in Superdrug and came across this Accessorize face primer. It has a kind of gel formula which feels very smooth. It is also clear, unlike the Beauty Flash Balm which looks like a palish tinted moisturiser. I really hope that I will fall in love with this as it will save me £11.99 every time I need a new face primer. Here is my review of the Clarins Beauty Flash Balm if you haven't seen it already Link :)

400ml Garnier Summerbody Moisturising Lotions Sun-Kissed Look in the Deep shade on offer for £3.50 each

I have never used a gradual tanner before, but for £3.50 each I really couldn't help buying two. I really need to get some colour in me. They have an apricot scent which smells lovely.

Simple Pore Minimising Toning Cleanser £3.03

I have been using this for about a week and I really like it. I really like the gel like formula. It takes my make-up off much better than make-up wipes when I don't have time for a thorough cleanse. I just pop it onto cotton pads and smooth my make-up away.

Superdrug Body Sprays in L-R: Flirty, Seduction & Crush

I bought these body sprays on a 3 for 2 offer. They are usually 99p each, but I only paid £1.98 for 3, Yay :) I will try and describe the scents to you as best I can.

I would say this is a day to night scent. it's fresh and fruity, but with musky undertones. I think there may be a hint of satsuma in there.

I would definitely say this is an evening scent. It has a much deeper, heavier, muskier aroma to it than Flirty.

This I would wear during the day. It's soft and fresh. A very clean scent.

I am really happy with all of my bargains and the points that I have collected on my Superdrug Beautycard. Have you tried any of these products? What do you think of them?

Love to you all

  6. @Alexa - I kept looking at it, but I usually associate Accessorize with accessories not make-up so I wasn't sure how good it would be. Will do a review once I have tested it out xx
