New Superdrug + Boots Haul!

Hi everyone! Today I went drugstore shopping with a friend and ended up spending £25.....bad me. BUT I ended up with some amazing stuff! On with the blog....

Maybelline BB Cream
Costing only £7.99 at Superdrug this product is definitely worth the price! This product is not only a foundation but is also great for healing your blemishes (Blemish Balm = BB). It comes in four shades and adapts to your skin colour! Go buy this now.

 Maybelline BB Cream in 'Medium'

Sleek Blush By 3 Cheek Trio

I've been wanting this for a while, as you know I ranted about this in my previous blog, and I have to say, it is shamazing! The colours are perf for summer and he blusher comes with three different shades, a bright pink matte, a lilac soft powder and a pink pressed powder! I'm in love <3 It costs £9.99 in most drugstores xx

My new Sleek Blusher Trio Palette

MUA Matte Lipstick In 'Nectar'

Considering the price of this, I can't complain about anything. The colour is amazing and surprisingly it stays for at least 3hrs! It cost £1 so definitely worth its price. This brand is only available in Superdrug as it is their own brand so if I were you I'd go know and buy this....

MUA Shade 16 Nectar

Maybelline Color Tattoo In 'On And On Bronze'

Although I already have 'Eternal Gold', I have to say that this colour is even nicer! It is the perfect colour for all Blondes/Brunettes. It's perfect for summer as the colour really brings out the eyes! Add the Maybelline Master Precise Eyeliner and you're good to go! These cost £4.99 in Superdrug and last for a very long time on the eyes!

'On And On Bronze'

Balmi Lip Balm In 'Raspberry'

This product came from Boots and cost £4.99 which is certainly not cheap for a lip balm, but this is worth the money. I've heard about Balmis before and they seem to be very similar to EOS Lip Balms so I decided to give them a try and I have to saythey are AMAZING! They come in two shapes: Spheres (a total copy of EOS) and the cube. I bought the cube shape in the flavour 'Raspberry' and it is soooo nice. The shape is perfect as it covers all of the lips without smearing onto the face. Go buy this now!

Ok well thats it guys! I hopy you enjoyed reading my blog and hopefully I'll be posting again soon! Thanks xoxox

Top 10 All-round Beauty Faves!

Gosh can't believe that Summer is finally here! The weather's bad but it's almost summer break! I've decided to do a new post of my top 10 beauty picks for Summer 2013. Here we go xx

Number 1

NARS Powder Blush in 'Orgasm'


Even though this is an old blush, it is absolutely amazing as it has the perfect colour and amount of shimmer for most skin types! It is sheer but still gives a gorgeous colour on your cheeks. Not cheap but certainly worth the price as it is £21.50 on their website

Number 2

Stila Lip Glaze Trio in 'Road Trip'

'Road Trip'

This lip trio has possibly the most gorgeous colours for your lips for summer! Sadly (in the UK0 it is sold out at the mo but I believe it costs £12 which is a great value for money as it has a value of £41 which is a huge difference! The colours are both subtle yet still have a nice pigmented colour and is perfect more most people with lighter hair and skin than the opposite (although it could look great on anyone) Personally I think this is very good value for money and are perfect for simple and subtle makeup xx ~ their website
Number 3

Barry M Gelly Nail Polish in 'Green Berry', 'Blueberry', 'Guava', 'Grapefruit' and 'Prickly Pear'

Green Berry'




'Prickly Pear'

I absolutely love these nail polishes as they come in 18 different shades that are all perfect for the Summer. The five above are personally my favourite as I think they are the most interesting colours as they are fun and bright! But of course it's all completely up to you! They are cheap as they only cost £3.99on the Barry M website ~

Number 4

Sleek Blush By 3 blush set in 'Sweet Cheeks'

'Sweet Cheeks'

Not only is this a gorgeous blusher set for any skin tone, it is also owned by the one and only FleurDeForce herself! All three shades are a different style of blush (cream, shimmer and matte) depending on the colour. Personally I think that the first shade is the most gorgeous as it matches my skin tone best but again it's up to you ! Also, you can mix the shades together on your cheeks to create more shades and styles. A great buy of only £9.99 ~

Number 5

Dior Be Iconic Lip Gloss in 'Fairy Pink' or 'Rose En Diable'

 A typical 'Be Iconic' Gloss
 'Rose En Diable'
'Fairy Pink'

Even though these glosses look highly pigmented in these photos, they are not as bright as they may seem and they look gorgeous on the lips esp. in Summer! The glosses come in 24 shades and, even though they are very expensive, certainly worth their money as they cost 29.00 Euros (couldn't find price in pounds) which is approx £24.70 (which is certainly not cheap) . They are sheer but layering them on top of another lipstick would definitely help bring out the colour.

Number 6

Revlon Lip Butters

Revlon Lip Butters

Not only do these cute little lip butters come in pretty packaging, but they are also extremely moisturizing and look great of any skin colour. There are 21 different shades which means it is easy to find a perfect match! very good pricing as they cost £7.99 in all local drugstores

Number 7

Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadow

 Maybelline Color Tattoos

'Eternal Gold'

I know that these have been out for a long time in the US but they came out fairly recently in the UK and I have to say they are absolutely amazing. I own Eternal Gold myself and really want to buy another one as they come in gorgeous colours! Not too expensive in all drugstores £4.99 so definitely worth the money !

Number 8

Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette

Naked Basics Palette
This palette has to be one of the best eyeshadow palette ever invented as they are pocket sized and have the most perfect selection of eyeshadows for any skin types and colours. The shades are all very subtle but look very pretty on the eyes xx Compared to the other UD palettes, this is good value as the shades are bigger sizes and have less selection (which in a way is better so you don't go overboard). Price is £20.00,default,pd.html

Number 9

MUA Pressed Powder 

MUA Pressed Powder in Shade 03

Considering the price of this, you wouldn't normally expect this to be good quality but actually it is quite amazing. it works well as it blends properly and comes in four shades. Shade 03 fits my skin tone perfectly and it is not hard to find the right shade. The powder looks natural on your skin yet still shows. For the shocking price of £1, this is definitely worth buying. MUA is Superdrug's own brand so can only be bought in the UK. Website:

Number 10

Clinique Chubby Sticks

Clinique Chubby Stick Collection

Even though these chubby sticks are quite old, they are still shining! They have a very big range of shades and are perfect for everyone! Also, they can be worn in Summer and Winter (depending on the shade) For summer, I'm loving the bright pinks and reds. Cost £16 for one in the UK Clinique website

Thanks so much for reading xx it really means alot xoxox

Right, let's get something straight. If you haven't heard of the amazing and moisturizing lip balms called EOS Lip Spheres then you have not lived ;D Words cannot describe how much I love these little spheres of wax but they are seriously worth buying!#

Sadly they are not sold in the UK....BUT of course you can order them offline on their website or off Amazon (mine came from Amazon). They are alot cheaper in the US though so if you're planning a trip there I highly suggest you buy some just because they are amazing and so original! I've never seen anything like them!

Anyway, in the UK they cost £5.99 with a limited choice on

BUT on the US site e.g. Walmart they are $2.96 which is equal to £1.90 which is a profit of £4.09 saved :

Without further ado I will list the collection of EOS Lip Spheres!
  • Honeysuckle Honeydew SPF 15 (Green)
  • Sweet Mint (Light Blue)
  • Strawberry Sorbet (Light Pink)
  • Summer Fruit (Red)
  • Passion Fruit (Purple)
  • Lemon Drop (Yellow)
  • Medicated Tangerine (Orange)
  • Pomegranate Raspberry (Dark Red)
  • Sweet Vanilla Nonsense (White)
  • Blueberry Potion (Blue)
  • Watermelon Wonderland (Lighter Red) 
The last three (Sweet Vanilla Nonsense,  Blueberry Potion and Watermelon Wonderland) are all part of the Alice in Wonderland Disney Gift Set.

Ok so I'm lusting over these fairly recent Rimmel Apocalips lip stains. If you haven't heard of them then you seriously should go out and buy yourself one or two as they are absolutely brilliant.

The colour is fantastic plus as it is a lip stain it is not sticky like a lip gloss but it still leaves a gorgeous shine on the lips. They also smell amazing!

I bought my two Rimmel Apocalips in Superdrug for £5.99 which is not a bad price considering how nice they are. They come in many colours but the two I have are probably some of their more 'subtle' colours. I bought myself 'Luna' and 'Nova' and below are some pictures of them all !

Rimmel Apocalips come in many different shades (depending where you live in the world) and their full collection, I believe, is : 'Nude Eclipse', 'Luna', 'Nova', 'Stellar', 'Galaxy', 'Celestial', 'Apocaliptic' and 'Big Bang' .

This is the full collection. (From left to right) Stellar, Big Bang, Nova, Apocaliptic, Galaxy, Celestial, Luna and Nude Eclipse.


That's all for this post, but more to come! Please comment what you think xox
