A Little Superdrug Haul!

Ahh trusty Superdrug :) always full of bargains!

I popped in there on Friday initially to pick up some goodies for a swap I'm doing with a lovely girl in New Zealand... But being a typical beauty junkie I had to grab some goodies for myself!

Garnier Comforting Cream Wash for Dry Skin

I needed a face wash that would cleanse my skin without leaving it tight and too dry. My skin's been so dry lately that I need to use products that give me a bit of moisture. So I'll try this and see how I get on.

Loreal True Match foundation

These were on offer 'buy one get one half price' and I'm building up my kit at the moment so this was perfect, they retail at £10 each so I got both for £15 - cheap as chips! I've heard great things about True Match, it's a liquid formula and it's meant to adapt to your natural pigmentation which all sounds very fancy! I've used it once already (a pump of each gives me the right shade) and I'm pleased with it so far but maybe I'll do an in depth review in a month or so. I got shades Ivory and Beige.

Loreal Colour Appeal Eyeshadows

Again these were 'buy one get one half price' so I picked up Metal Plum & Platinum Beige - 2 gorgeous, shimmery shadows. I think they retail at around £5 each.

Metal Plum

Platinum Beige

MUA Pro Conceal & Brighten Kit in Porcelain Beige

I'm not a huge fan of MUA (dare I say it!) I tend to think you get what you pay for and if products are as cheap as £1 then they aren't going to be great quality.. Not always true as Elf for example are affordable and good quality. Unfortunately this has been true with other MUA products I've tried, but I thought I'd give this a go as I've read of couple of really good reviews and for £3.50 it's worth a try.

Nivea Milk and Honey lip balm & Vaseline Pink Bubbly

Pretty self explanatory.. I'm a lip balm freak! I hate having dry lips so I'm constantly applying something to moisturise them and these both smell delicious :)

Rimmel Apocalips in Celestial

Last but by no means least, the much raved about Apocalips. I went for Celestial, a dark rose pink which will be great for daytime wear. I may review it but I know there's tons of reviews in the blogosphere right now so let me know of thats something you'd like me to do.
