Beauty Products Haul

There is a huge chance I may not have needed any of these wondrous items, but what can I say? I’m a sucker for beauty products and it was pay day, sooooo I really couldn't help myself.

Plus, there is a 3 for 2 offer on at Superdrug at the moment, which only persuaded me more.

Makeup Revolution Golden Sugar Blush Palette - £6

I have zero idea what to say about this besides look at it. Honestly. Just look at it. How absolutely gorgeous are those shades? I felt like a giddy school girl picking this up and I have not been disappointed. I think this is a perfect blusher palette to use throughout the spring and summer months and for only £6, what more could you want?

Makeup Revolution Ultra Cover and Conceal Palette - £6

Ok, confession time. I picked up the wrong palette.

I intended to use this palette for contouring and what not, but when I got home I realized I had picked up the lightest possible colour palette, where all the shades are similar to my own skin tone. Ok, no problem, just go back to Superdrug and swap it right? Wrong. I went back to do a quick swapsies but low and behold they don’t do exchanges or refunds on makeup items even if they haven’t been used. Brilliant. It could be worse I suppose. I’m sure I’ll find some use for these colours but what a right royal shame.

Barry M Sunset Daylight Curing nail varnish in Fuschia Generation (along with top coat) - £4.99 each

Hands up who needs more nail varnishes? Because I sure don’t. I easily have around 70 and I do not need to be adding to this collection any time soon, but once I read that these polishes could last up to 10 days, I had to give them a go. A review will be up soon and trust me, it’s a gooden.

Garnier Pure Active Wasabi Power Face Scrub – £4.49* (*BOGOF)

Phew, that’s a name and a half right?

Anyway, I absolutely LOVE this scrub but let me tell you something, it’s a tough one to track down. I ran out of this stuff over a month ago but could I find it anywhere? NOPE! Luckily for me once I did track down this heaven sent face scrub in Superdrug, it was on a BOGOF offer! Result!

Revlon Colourburst Balm Stain – Demure (105) - £5.99

I own a few of these Revlon crayons and I love them all; they're matte and glossy lip pencils are great additions to any makeup collection and I can't praise them enough. I was specifically on the hunt for a light pink spring/summer lip colour that I could wear daily throughout the warmer months, so I instantly knew which brand I could trust. However, this colour is just too fair for my naturally plummy lips and it looks rather transparent on me. It’s quite glossy and hydrating which is always a plus, but note there is a slight shimmer to the formula, so expect glittery lips!

L’Oréal Paris Infallible Matte Foundation – Porcelain – £7.99

As I have super, ridiculously oily skin, I’m always eager to try out new matte products and put them to the test. I've heard wonderful things about this foundation, so I have high hopes. Don't let me down 
L’Oréal, don't let me down.

Zara Perfumes – Each £7.49 (50% off)

If you haven't tried Zara perfumes yet, where have you been hiding? Not only do they do amazing dupes of high end perfumes, they're so bloody cheap! The dark blue perfume is called 'Intense' whilst the paler blue is called 'L'eau'. Both smell lovely and are perfect summer scents. I cannot describe these perfumes that well...just go down to your local Zara and take a whiff yourself!

Have you tried any of these products before? If so, what are your thoughts on them? Leave me a comment below and thanks for sneaking by! <3
