It’s been a hot minute since I’ve gone shopping shopping and not just picking up repurchases of faves. My last haul was in August, and over the last few weeks I’ve been making the most of different skincare and makeup offers that have been floating about. So I thought I would share with you the goodies that have made it into my collection!
Hello everyone! Today I am doing a blog post that I don’t think I have done before; a full face using my favourite products from the drugstore! It could also be called My Staple Drugstore Products, but companies are always evolving and bringing out something new. So it’s difficult to say this one thing will always be my staple when it might not be in a few months time. Some are more mid-range within the drugstore but they can all be bought for under £15! So without further ado here is a makeup look using all my current favourites!
I have tried a few drugstore primers, but have never tried more high end brands. So when I saw that Urban Decay had a travel sized primer I couldn’t resist trying it! I have had it for a few months now and I was on the fence for as I couldn’t decide how I felt about this primer.
A little while ago I got the Be Legendary Liquid Metal Lipstick in Mauve Squad in a gift set from Smashbox. I had never tried a metallic lipstick, I wasn’t sure I’d really wear it. So when I received this one it was a great chance to try one out.
Earlier in the year I treated myself to an LVL treatment, it had been something I had been wanting to try. But with the end of my first year at uni looming I wanted to wait until I’d have time to actually wear makeup and make the most of the treatment. LVL is basically a perm for your eyelashes, it stands for Lengthen, Volume and Lift. I had heard of this for a while before I had it done, but never really understood what it was until I saw a friend had it done and her lashes looked amazing! So after my final assessment was done I decided to treat myself to an LVL. Plus I had many exciting weekends planned so by having my lashes done meant one less step in my makeup routine!
Finding a good mascara can be a challenge. Everyone wants something different from their mascara, whether it be length, volume, thickness or longevity. For me I look for length and longevity. As my fave drugstore mascara by Seventeen has been discontinued it led me to branch out and try other brands to find a replacement. I have tried the Soap & Glory Thick & Fast HD Collagen-Coat mascara and thought it was a good mascara, which you can read a full review of here. When I was buying some things from Soap & Glory they had a 3-for-2 offer and so I thought I would try another of their mascara’s.
As I have been more active on social media and taking more pictures, I realised that as I took these photos of myself I would analyse everything. Every little detail about myself and what other people might think when they look at these photos.
There are many nudes out there, with different undertones, formulas, finishes leading to so many choices. As I was reorganising my collection I was brainstorming blog posts I wanted to do. So after checking my archives I realised I’ve never done a post dedicated to my favourite nudes; and without further ado here they are!
A little while ago as I was perusing the isles of Boots, I came across the clearance section and to my surprise they had a few Bare Minerals products there, you can check out the other goodies I bought in this haul. When I saw the Original foundation was on sale for £13 rather than £27, I had been wanting to try it and this offer was too good to resist.
