Major haul part 2


So I did a little splurge in superdrug and boots. Usually I do a long introduction saying how much I have been loving all of these products and that I had my eye on them for ages and finally caved in to buy them, but today I am not going to do that. Although what I just wrote is true, I just didn't need to buy anything makeup related as I have far to much already in my drawer. But I thought that I would treat myself.

Starting with Nails. Superdrug were having a 3 for 2 nail offer with all of their nail varnishes in store. The superdrug in my high street has started to sell Opi varnishes and I fell in love with these two colours. My brothers graduation was last tuesday and my dress was a dark blue colour and that was one colour nail varnish I didn't own! The two colours I got were It's up to you (dark blue) and Take a stand (Pink). The other nail varnish I got was from Sleek. This is the first time I have tried out the Gel  style polishes. I got a pale pink in Sugar coat me, as I thought it would be really pretty for the summer. And if it lasts for a while then I will definitely be investing in them!



When looking at the Sleek nail polishes I saw this face form palette. As it was my brothers graduation  and we were going up the night before and staying in a travel lodge I wanted to try and get a all in one blush, highlighter and bronzer palette. I have tried this out for a couple of days now and I absolutely love it. I am used to using hoola by benefit and this is very similar. The blush is also gorgeous which is always a bonus!



I also popped into the body shop. This is one of the stores which I feel is often overlooked when wanting makeup. The prices are pretty affordable, although not completely high street, and mostly are organic or are better for your skin. I have been using the all in one face base for over 5 years now, which is a very long time when it comes to using a product! (Obviously I bought others!) It was time for a new one so I purchased one. I am in the shade 04. When I finding it on the shelf I found this BB cream. I have read a couple of reviews about this online so kind of understood the whole 'it comes out white then rubs on your hand to blend into your skin tone'. I struggle to find a foundation that works perfectly for me, likewise I struggle to find bb creams that work for me. I tried this out on the back of my hand and am really pleased with the results. I decided that I would give it a little try so will let you know what I think when I have given it a good test run! I got shade 00 in the BB cream. I also got given a eyeliner in a lucky dip which I am also yet to try!


Obviously I can't do a makeup haul without purchasing some kind of eye makeup. I have seen the Kate collection for Rimmel London both in stores and online and wanted to try out the shadow stick. I got the rose gold colour and am yet to try it out! I had planned to wear this shade on my eyes for my brothers graduation but decided to wear a more neutral colour. I got Maxfactor pink gold 24 hour colour tattoo. I absolutely love this colour. I wore it when I was away with my Naked 3 palette.





Finally I went to accessorise and picked up a couple of hairbands. I decided to go shopping on probably the hottest day of the year so far in the UK, so needed to get my hair out of my face. These were the only ones that I could find that were pretty and affordable. They do the job, but are not amazing for people with long hair like me! They look pretty at the end of a plait though!

I hope you enjoyed my makeup haul. I will probably not buy any more makeup bits for a while now which is good! Thankyou for reading!

    1. It is really lovely, I took it on holiday with me last year and wore the highlighter most evenings on its own to give my skin a little bit of a glow. I put it on the high points of my shoulders as well. If you are looking to invest in an all in one product for summer and winter I would highly recommend that palette! xxx
