Drugstore Haul

Hello my lovelies!

At the weekend I went into town to have an eye-test but opposite the opticians were a few shops that I couldn't help going into. Anndddd I don't think I really have to explain what happened next do I?

From left to right: Calvin Klein Venus Lipstick, W7 The Cheek Of It

Bronzer Shade 1

So yeah, I bought some makeup! Actually, quite a lot of makeup...
 Probably too much makeup. I guess all I can say is ... sorry.

MUA Eye Shadow Palette Heaven and Earth - £4

I'm a really big fan of nude and natural eye shadows and have been looking out for a nice palette like this one for quite a while. I like variety and this palette provides me with it, 12 colours will be plenty! 

Every single colour in this palette is gorgeous and for once I know that I am actually going to wear them all, which is quite uncommon because whenever I buy a palette there's always a couple of colours I never touch and just completely avoid. So far my favourite is the golden colour at the top right!

MUA Bronzer Shade 1 - £1

I was in need of a new bronzer as I had run out in January but I couldn't be bothered to go and buy a new one, so when I went into Superdrug I kept an eye out for a nice looking bronzer. This was the best bronzer I found, colour wise AND price wise! I mean £1 for a lovely bronzer? wow!

I just love how MUA keep their prices affordable, it's very handy!

Maybelline Master Shape Eyebrow Pencil - £2.99

I have only recently started to fill in my eyebrows because they are practically invisible due to my blonde hair. I thought that this would be a good brow pencil to start with, it's nothing fancy but it does its job.

A nice touch on this brow pencil is that there is a little 'tutorial' on the side showing you how to correctly fill in your eyebrows, which is useful for a 'beginner' like me.

W7 Blusher the cheek of it - £2.99

I'm not really sure why I bought this blusher, I think it was an impulse buy more than anything. I'm already using an amazing blusher (Mii Cosmetics Blush) but I guess trying out new things is always a good idea.

And yes I am aware at how highly pigmented this blusher is but as long as I don't put heaps of it on or apply it heavy handedly, I won't end up looking like a clown!

I bought this product from a small drugstore and I can't find it online, sorry!

Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation - £6.99

This was actually one of the products I specifically went into get. I only have a few pumps left of my last foundation so I thought it would be a good idea to buy another one beforehand, so if it runs out unexpectedly I have another bottle ready and waiting!

I use quite a light shade as I am pale but I find that if I use a shade lighter than this, I end up looking like a ghost!

Calvin Klein Delicious Luxury Creme Lipstick Venus - £2.00

I bought this because I fancied a little bit of change. I usually go for lighter more subtle colours for lipsticks but I decided that I wanted to come out of my lipstick comfort zone and go for something bright!

I bought this from a small little drugstore whilst in town and I can't find it on sale at any of the big Drugstores, sorry!

Maybelline Baby Lips - £2.99

Pink Punch and Cherry Me

I'm a massive fan of the Baby Lips collection so I thought that I should buy a few more whilst in boots. There was a 3 for 2 offer on so that's why I purchased two at the same time, if you were wondering, the other product that I bought in the 3 for 2 offer was the eyebrow pencil!

Cherry Me
 Cherry me obviously smells and tastes like cherry and has a lovely colour. It's a very subtle red and I just love it!

Pink Punch
Pink Punch is a very bright pink colour. I like to wear this one at the weekends rather than in school because it stands out and is very obvious.

From top to bottom:

Bird Pocket Mirror - £1.99

This adorable pocket mirror was in the small drugstore I have previously mentioned. I think it's perfect to have in your coat or bag so you can check your hair and makeup quickly!

The design is just amazing and I love the floral pattern!

I hope I brought you a sprinkle of joy


  1. I am in love with MUA palettes, they are great dupes of naked palettes!
