Superdrug Haul!


Finally my order from Superdrug has come! And this time it was the RIGHT order which makes everything so much better. I bought a selection of bits that I have wanted to treat myself too for a while now. 
 First of all I got this NYC Palette. This was probably one of the things I was most excited about getting. These may have been in the UK for a while now but I have only really just seen them. Priced at £2.49 each they are truly a steal! Something else I thought was good about them is that they have been created with different eye colours in mind. I got Smokey Blue for blue eyes and Midtown Mauve for brown eyes. My eyes are mainly blue but I have a spec of brown in one of my eyes. I always gravitate towards the pinks and purples for my eyes but I also wanted to try out the blue palette too!
When I saw that this palette had come back into stock I knew that I needed to get my hands on it. I have been looking for it in stores and online with no luck at all! This palette is called 'Undress me too' by MUA and has been stated by bloggers to be very similar to the Naked 2 palette with the same textures and colour pay off. I wanted to see whether this is true as I am a huge fan of the Naked 2! This palette retails at £4.00.
 Now onto lips, I needed some new lip products as I use my same Bombshell by MAC everyday with a little bit of my revlon kissable balm stain underneath. I had heard good things about these products so picked some up. First of all I got The Cream Puff moisturising Lip Cream in cotton candy 1. On the side it says a Velvety soft, matt finish lip cream. I would agree with this statement as it does go on very matt and does feel that it is super soft. However sadly to say I really didn't like this product. I have always tried different products and experimented with different things but I just hated the way it made my lips feel when wearing it. I felt like my lips reacted to it so I am not sure whether I am going to try it again. I did however love the packaging and the smell of the product which is always a bonus! This retails at £2.99.
 I had seen these being advertised in superdrug in store and wanted to get a couple. Little Mix created their own products for Collection and have sold really well. The shade on the Left is Jade's colour. This colour may be one of my favourites in terms of lips as it can be worn as a nude colour. The shade on the right is Perrie's colour and is a purple colour. I have wanted to try out a purple colour for a while now and seeing as Perrie is known for her purple Lip I decided to give this a try. I really like the colour payoff as when it is on the lips it doesn't look as out there. I like how the collection can be connected to each of the girls with their iconic symbol. Both of these lipsticks retail at £2.49 at the moment.
 The Apocalips Lip Lacquers are another blogger recommended product that I wanted to try out. I got shade 102 Nova which is a light pink colour. I love how it goes on as a lipgloss but really sticks and has the colour of a lipstick. I have probably worn this the most since I have got it as it can be worn for day and evening time. This retails currently for £5.99.
I have finally decided to buy a Real Techniques brush! I decided to get the expert face brush as this seemed to be the one brush when researched that people had said to get as the first one. I have used this to apply my liquid foundation and really love how easily the brush blends in the foundation. I also like how it has a flat bottom which means it can stand next to all of my brushes on my dressing table. This brush retails at £8.99. 

I hope this haul was worth the wait, I was so excited to share all the bits I got with you!
