A rather Large Superdrug Haul.

Hey there! so last sunday i made a rather large superdrug order, not only did did i need a few things superdrug currently as mix & match 3 for 2. So it was a good excuse to get some things i wanted as well! of course, its all for the blog (honestly the best excuse).

So over the past few months i went through a bit of a skincare phase, but i seem to have fallen back into a makeup phase now! i still needed/wanted a few skincare and haircare bits however.

My hair doesnt like this heat right now! ive loved the herbal essences naked shine range for a while but the conditioner doesnt seem to be quite cutting it anymore so instead i ordered the herbal essences naked green tea and mint conditioner (normally £3.99 currently £1.98). also hair wise i needed a new hair mask so got the ultimate blends coconut oil frizzy hair mask (currently £2.99 was £4.49). i got 2 showers as you can see, some of my favourites! the original source mint & tea tree shower gel  (£1, was £2.29) a staple of mine especially in the summer! and the superdrug fruity orange & satsuma shower gel (99p) is a shower gel i always order when i order from superdrug.

Finally for this section, i got 2 skincare items, ive really wanted a spritz like the B. hydrated hyaluronic acid facial spritz (£7.99) for a while, and as B. are on buy one get one free i thought i would pick up a back up of my current favourite cleanser for a second cleanse/morning cleanse, the B. clean Creamy Foam hydrating cleanser (£6.99) is amazing because it gives that clean fresh feeling for the summer without stripping or making your skin dry.


Onto the new shiny makeup! i was running very low on powder in general, and a friend suggested the E.l.f High definition setting powder (£7.50). i used this powder many years ago when elf was first in the uk and really liked it so i thought why not! i also really needed a pressed powder so i thought id give the maybelline fit me matte and poreless powder in translucent (£5.99) a go, i normally go for coloured powders but they are often not pale enough so i went for translucent instead.

on the theme of face products and maybelline, i thought id give the maybelline fit me matte & poreless foundation in 95 fair porcelain (£6.99) a try. i wish i could try more drugstore foundations but they are so often too dark for me. but they seem to have brought out a very light shade yay! i also hadnt tried a foundation in a while.
i picked up a tube of the collection lasting perfection concealer (£4.19) in the new shade extra fair, ive tried this concealer before but its never quite been light enough for me so fingers crossed this one is and i can finally give it a good go!
the last face product i picked up is the barry m all night long stick primer in original (£6.99). i really liked the sound of a stick primer, i really like stick products and really want to try more!

almost there i promise! i spent too much money, i needed some new mascaras/wanted some new ones to try, i couldnt resist tryin this new one from loreal the infallible unlimited mascara £10.99. i couldnt not try this really weird want, it bends to a right angle! so odd. The next mascara i bought is the loreal false lash X fiber mascara (£10.99), ive always wanted to try a fiber mascara and ive heard nothing but good things about this one! finally for mascaras, i got the barry m showgirl extra lengthening mascara (£4.99), ive been meaning to try this for a while hearing all good things about it, the tube is rather weighty!

the last thing i got was a new liquid liner, i normally use the bourjois liner pinceau because i find it really hard to find a matt liner with a tip i like! so i thought id try the maybelline master ink matte liquid eyeliner (£5.99). sounds promising considering its so hard to find a matte liner in the drugstore!

phew! as you can see i seriously hauled, thanks for the 3 for 2! what would you like to see me review first? let me know!
