Collection Illuminating Touch Foundation
I kept seeing positive reviews on this product, and would often walk past the makeup stand eyeing it up, without even realising. A few weeks ago I was drawn in with a bright red promotion poster, saying this foundation was now being sold at £3.99! Crazy right? So I thought it would be the perfect time to trial it out, as the bank was definitely not broken. I picked up the shade Ivory 2 and was concerned that it was a little too dark when I applied it for the first time, but with some bronzer around the jaw line; I managed to make it work. From the few times I’ve used this foundation, I can tell I’m going to love it more each use I get. The formula isn’t too rich, making it easy to blend and also adds a dewy glow to the skin. The coverage is medium, but would only need a small amount of added product to build a full coverage base. It’s super long lasting, finding that the longer I wore it, the better it looked. By the time it came to taking my makeup off at the end of the day, my skin / foundation looked that nice that I was gutted to remove it. Lastly, the bottle has a frosted glass finish to it which gives a luxurious touch the the appearance.
Sleek Matte Me Liquid Lipstick
I’m trying my best to step out of my comfort zone with makeup recently (probably noticeable with my last haul, where I purchased a pastel pink eyeliner.. mega cute though). So when I saw Zoella unbox these Sleek Matte Me Liquid Lipsticks I knew I had to swatch them for myself. The colours I really loved were the nude shades, particularly ‘Shabby Chic’ and will 100% be purchasing that one when I have the chance, but I thought this bright shade would be perfect for summer days.. and I was so right. The pigmentation is crazily high and applies quite liquidy, but dries completely matte. I got so many compliments when wearing this lip product that I just kept applying it over and over (not necessary at all). After applying it a few too many times throughout the day I noticed that it came away from the inside of my lips, leaving just a lip liner mark around the edge. I laughed about it with my friend at the time, but definitely learned my lesson to not be too heavy with this one.
I have had two of these little pots of joy since they were first released, use them within my daily makeup routine and have hardly made a dent; so why on earth have I not invested in more shades? This was the question I was annoying myself with as I was vigerously digging through the testers in Superdrug. In the end, I picked up a true nude shade titled ‘Creme De Rose’ to cancel out any discolouration on my lids and to create a perfect even base. I also picked up ‘On and on Bronze’, which is a gorgeous copper shade with a subtle shimmer to it. I thought a bronzed eye makeup look would compliment the bold lips I’ve been testing out, and can say I am obsessed with the outcome. I’m thinking of doing a makeup look on my blog, which will features these Maybelline Colour Tattoo’s – if you would like to see that then please do let me know. I’ve never done a post like this so would be fun to experiment and see what I can come up with.
Okay, admittedly this is not from Superdrug. However, I did purchase it on the same day and felt it was far too pretty not to photograph, especially against the bright purple tissue paper it was wrapped in. I was on the hunt for a chunkier anklet as my dainty one that I adored snapped whilst I was sleeping *cries*. I figured if it snapped that easily, I’m in need of a more fool proof size. This one was £6 and falls beautifully around my ankle. The silver circles droop below the angled squares, and don’t make a jingling sound when I walk – bonus! When I’m sat down, this does dig into my skin, but all is forgiven because it’s just so sweet when it’s on. Yes I am that 19 year old that wears jewellery around her ankle and I’m perfectly okay with this.
Thank you so much for reading this blog post, and sticking it out until the end. Feel free to leave a comment on what your favourite product from this haul is, I’d love to know what you think.
