I only went in for cotton wool

‘I only went in for cotton wool’ that’s what I tell my husband & I always come out with products. In my defence I had a gift voucher to use up for Superdrug and I have a little still left on it so will be popping back in at some point as I was overwhelmed with all the new releases and the makeup isle was mobbed with teenagers using the testers to do their full makeup. Whats with that …. its GROSS?!

Here is what I managed to pick up

Superdrug Purchases L’Oreal Luminize Code BB Cream SPF 15  - This caught my eye as its meant to help with dark spots and really hydrate your skin. It also has SPF 15 in and UVA protection. I’m a fan of the Garnier BB cream and the N07 one too. But I’m on the hunt for a great one and hoping this is it. I picked it up whilst it was on sale for £9.99. Normal price this will cost you £14.99 for 50ml The only downside I can see is that they only offer 2 shades light and medium.

B. Pure Micellar Water I am also on the hunt for a good Micellar Water, I really like using these for removing my makeup before cleansing. I have tried a few, the La-Roche-Posay-Physiological-Micellar-Solution and the Etat Pur Micellar Cleansing Water. I am hoping this one is good as it’s a great price. £4.99 for 150ml

Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquer in Galaxy and Luna - I just had to try these, took me ages to track them down as my local Superdrug had sold out. I have already worn Galaxy and love it. It’s a deep plum colour. I must confess that since buying these two I went back and picked up Celestial too. They are great of your not a traditional lipstick fan and if you don’t like sticky lip gloss. These are pigmented and quite long wearing. I for one am a big fan. £5.99 each

Small Haul

Rimmel ScandalEyes Shadow Stick Bad Bronze – I really liked the Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner pencils that were released a couple of months ago and thought I’d give these a go. They had 5 shades to choose from bronze, black, blue, beige and purple. The bronze caught my eye. I’m yet to use it but I like look of these they remind me of the NYX jumbo shadow sticks. These Rimmel Shadow ticks are £3.49

Rimmel Cocktail Colours Nail Polish – There were three colours the one I picked up Hawaiian Punch, Baby Bellini and Shirley Temple. I wanted all three but I need new nail polish like I need a hole in the head so I just picked up this Cute Hawaiian Punch which is a shimmery red toned pink. It’s so cute and girly. These are a bargain at £3.99. I can’t promise I won’t go back and get the other two.

Have you picked anything new up recently? Or have you tried any of the things I bought.

    Haha I love the title! A woman in my local superdrug is always doing her makeup with the testers when I go in there, it’s so disgusting!
