Walking past a Superdrug or Boots store and resisting the temptation to buy something is probably harder than resisting the last slice of chocolate cake that stares at you mockingly on a Saturday night. Okay, maybe they’re both equal, but either way we just could not help ourselves when walking past Superdrug the other day with the bright posters in the windows shouting ‘Buy me!’. So in the end we did give in to temptation this time but managed to stop ourselves as the other customers began to look at us as though we were two little children in Disneyland for the first time. Although a few days after this visit, we also passed a Boots store soon after so expect a larger haul on what we bought that day…whoops.
The first two products we want to share with you are the two Maybelline products, the master sculpt contour kit in the darker shade and the Maybelline color elixir in the shade Blush essence which we thought was perfect for summer! Curls has used the master sculpt once or twice since purchase and finds both shades gorgeous! It also comes with a handy brush which is perfect to apply the contour color. We also picked up 3 Barry M nail colors including two Gelly Hi-shine colors and one from the Speedy Dry range. They are all such lovely colors and we thought the two Gelly polishes in particular were especially great to wear in the summer months. Although, Straight has been wearing the purple toned polish recently whilst Curly tried out the Speedy Dry one, and we do have to say the brush applicator for both formulations are very different as the Speedy Dry one is more flat with the Gelly Hi-shine brush has a more rounded shape. Because of this we are more likely to pick up the Speedy Dry colors next time as they are much easier to apply, especially for beginners. Lastly, the final product we had picked up in our haul is the L’Oreal lumi magique concealer which we have heard is supposedly a dupe for the YSL touche eclat illuminating concealer, although we are yet to use this product so let us know if you would like to hear our thoughts on it.
This was our little high street haul, have you popped in to Superdrug lately, is there any product in particular that you would like an in depth review on? We would love to know if there’s anything you have planned on your beauty wishlist so we can add it to our never ending list! Actually, maybe that might not be a good idea as we should probably use up what we have first if you want to know what those products are then look out for our Project Pan post coming soon!
Love Curls & S x
