Superdrug Haul

Sophie's Plus Size Wonderland Superdrug Beauty Haul
Hiya Lovelies!

How are you? 

There is nothing better than doing a bit of shopping at the weekend, actually any day can be a shopping day! Whether it's during your lunchtime or after work, there's always time for a bit of retail therapy.

I had a Social Media meeting on Saturday so I decided to pop into Superdrug afterwards as it was nearby. I could hear the Beauty Products from across the road shouting Sophieee buy me! Wouldn't it be great if you could transfer the whole of Superdrug into your home? *Dreams* #superdrugathome #willhappenoneday  #maybenot

So what did I buy?

Lips

I wear Lipstick now and again but I have always been more of a Lip Gloss kinda girl. I spotted Tanya Burr's exclusive collection by Eye Candy and just had to try out First Date. I am totally loving this Lip Gloss because not only does it give you a lovely light pink super glossy look that you can wear everyday, it also has a gorgeous sweet candy smell. The applicator brush feels really smooth which is great, there's nothing worse than a rough applicator!

I was on the hunt for a Lip Balm and came across Kissy Missy from the Tutti Fruity Range by Zoella, as always anything in pink packaging will always catch my eye! This Berry flavoured Lip Balm is definitely a new favourite of mine. What I like about Kissy Missy is that it is very pigmented so it adds a pretty light colour to your lips and leaves them feeling amazingly soft.

I then spotted two Lip Geek Lipsticks from I Heart Make Up. I find that certain Lipsticks tend to leave lips feeling dry but I wanted to try these out as I loved the colours. I went for Baby Doll and Ken Will Want Me. Baby Doll has a very light pink/peachy colour, if you wanted to wear a Lipstick under the First Date Lip Gloss then this colour would be ideal. Ken Will Want Me is slightly darker than Baby Doll which actually looks great under the Kissy Missy Lip Balm, although you can also wear them on their own. They have not got any kind of smell and they don't dry out your lips. May I add that the packaging is beyond adorable!

Skincare

I am sometimes fussy with Lotions, Moisturisers and Shower Gels. I have been using Dove products for a while now as they're great on the skin and smell amazing. However I wanted to try something different so I picked up the Zoella Foam Sweet Foam Cleansing Shower Gel which has a nice fruity smell. With extracts of Acai and Blueberry it claims to soothe your skin, I shall let you know the outcome once I have been using it for a while. Oh and I totally love the fact that it hasn't been tested on animals either.
Yay!

I also went for the Zoella Creamy Madly Dreamy Body Lotion, very girly packaging which I love and it looks great on my dressing table. The smell reminds me a little bit of The Just Pink Fragrance from Next. It leaves your skin feeling absolutely luscious and has all the ingredients you would want in a good Body Lotion such as Vitamin E, Aloe and Shea Butter so you should definitely try it out.

Eyes

I love Eyelashes, you can experiment and create so many different looks. I went for Tanya Burr's Girls Night Out Lashes as I haven't tried these before. They are going to look amazing with the First Date Lip Gloss.

Next up I went for Cheryl's Girls night. I have had these lashes before and fell in love as soon as I applied them! They are darker on the outer corners so they really emphasise the shape of your eye.

If you want more volume then you should go for the Double Volume Edition 40 by Lash exclusively for Superdrug. These Eyelashes are great for those who love a dramatic eye. Dark smokey eyes and a natural looking lip are one of my favourite looks.

For the days I don't wear Lashes I like to use the Awesome Lash and Power Definition Mascara By Make Up Revolution, I must say it is surely another favourite of mine as it really adds definition to your eyes without needing to add lashes. To keep your Mascara in tip top condition don't pump the wand in and out as this causes air to be pushed into the tube therefore drying the Mascara out.

I also bought some Eye Primer from I Heart Make Up, great if you're planning to wear Eyeshadow for a long time. lastly I wanted to try the Make Up Academy Pro-Base Fixing Mist. I haven't used this particular one before but it claims to last up to 8 hours and hydrates the skin. I Will let you know how I get on with it.

  1. Such great purchases! I definitely couldn't live with my Bobbi Brown BB Cream, even if I don't wear any makeup that day, I never leave the house without my BB cream on (I live that it has SPF in it!)
