It’s not a secret that I love Superdrug, makeup or saving money so when I caught on to the fact that there’s a 3 for 2 offer on all makeup over at Superdrug.com, I started filling my online basket. I always use the Superdrug 3 for 2 offer to stock up on some of my favourites and use it to try out new products that I maybe wouldn’t jump in to buy at full price.
This isn’t a sponsored post – I just really like my bargain makeup shopping & thought I would share some of my favourites. The full cost of this lot should be £67.69 but comes down to £48.71 which is a saving of 34% – something thank my bank balance is thankful for!
L’Oreal Paris True Match Foundation
My go-to foundation – doesn’t matter what I try or test out – I always fall back to L’Oreal True Match. I’ve been using this foundation for years, I started out with the Roller version of this foundation which was a thick cream that you applied like paint with the included roller sponge! I soon moved onto the liquid version, and haven’t looked back since. I generally buy 2 when they are on a 3-for-2 offer, bringing the cost down to roughly £5 as one counts as my free item! Superdrug’s also got an offer on just now that stacks with the multibuy offer with L’Oreal products, meaning you get a free goodie bag worth £50 when you spend £25 on their products.
Revolution Shook Palette
This palette popped up when I clicked on the “Save 15% on Revolution” banner on the Superdrug website – that’s 36 of some of the best drugstore eyeshadows for less than £15 and a big massive mirror to boot. Morphe, who? I’ve often found that my Revolution eyeshadows perform better than some of my higher-end palettes, so I’ve no problem buying their new launches online without testing them in store as I’ve never been let down so far!
Lottie London Lacquer Nail Varnish
Lottie London is one of those brands that I hear a lot about but I’ve never actually tried any of their products. They’re currently 50% off plus in the 3-for-2 offer, so I’m going to give some of the products a try. I’m instantly drawn to some of their new for 2019 nail varnishes and I do need to update my collection as I’ve pretty much got different variations of silver, hot pink, black, grey and silver glitter from lots of different brands so I’m going to try out Bed Head (a mermaid-y lilac pearl shade), Daze Dream (a mint green) and Cloud 9 (a pearly pink).
NYX Proof It! Eyeshadow Primer
Another brand that I’ve not tried yet, but been excited to try since they launched on Superdrug – yes I know that the brand has been in Boots for a while, but I prefer buying at Superdrug and getting my Beauty Card points!
I’ve tried a few different eyeshadow primers, from a dab of my concealer and the Urban Decay Primer Potion and I’ve never found one yet that works like it’s supposed to but doesn’t cost about £2 for every single application, so I’m excited to see how the NYX one works as I’ve seen a couple of good reviews of it online.
Max Factor False Lash Effect Mascara
I probably, at a guess, have about 30 mascaras sitting in my mascara drawer that I’m currently either using or have yet to try (or in the case of the Soap & Glory Thick & Fast mascara, about 5 backups). But that doesn’t stop me jumping back to my favourite mascara every time that it’s on offer. The Max Factor False Lash Effect mascara does exactly what it says on the tube – long, thick, non-clumpy lashes that looks like you’re wearing falsies. I much prefer the Max Factor one to other high street versions like the Maybelline The Falsies, mostly because this one doesn’t transfer mascara onto the inside of my glasses if I blink!
Collection Glam Crystals Gel Eyeliner
This eyeliner is more than an eyeliner – I use it as an eyeshadow! I first picked this up last Halloween for my unicorn costume (obviously) and I can’t believe how well this product works considering the price – it’s £2.99 and offers the most consistent glitter that I’ve ever tried as an eyeshadow/liner.
It’s got a long brush that makes application as an eyeliner really, really easy (the product itself is pretty wet but dries quickly) but also lends itself well to use as an eyeshadow product. I apply it with the brush and then either leave it or buff it out slightly with an eyeshadow brush which actually works really well and doesn’t leave gaps of glitter!
Maybelline Fit Me! Concealer
Another one of my tried and tested products, the Fit Me! concealer from Maybelline just works! Apparently like the cult favourite NARS Radiant Creamy, but I’ve never tried that one so I couldn’t comment on that.
I love that this one is light enough for my pale skin but it doesn’t leave under my eyes looking like the Sahara desert after a few hours. I usually set this one down with my next purchase, the Fit Me powder, and it doesn’t shift all day but still leaves my undereyes looking fresh and awake.
Maybelline Fit Me! Pressed Powder
I really like the Fit Me! Matte+Poreless range from Maybelline as it’s one of the only ranges that actually keeps my oily skin behaving for the majority of the day without having to touch up. Their foundation is another one of my favourites, although I do need to mix two colours to get my correct shade. The translucent powder is such a quick and simple way to finish off my makeup regardless of the foundation that I’m wearing and it’s the only powder that I’ve never managed to smash in my makeup bag thanks to the chunky packaging! You get the powder, a sponge applicator and a mirror in this sturdy little box and they have a range of colours to suit everybody’s skin tone too.
I ❤ Revolution NOW Thats What I Call Makeup 90s
This is just one of those things that I’m buying because it’s cute. Nothing else, it just speaks to my inner 90s kid. This palette actually has a really nice mix of browns, pinks and purple shades which is really the last thing I need but look at it! It’s a boom box!
