Superdrug Haul: 11/2/2015

To break my silence as a blogger (I can’t really make excuses either, other than being busy and distracted, so same old…) I want to share with you my recent self-indulgent purchases from my local Superdrug. I’ve been trying to cut back on my spending (since I have a lot, and I’m saving money for a special occasion) but since my self-esteem has taken a hit and I’m coming to terms with a very sad event (I’ll leave it at that), I figured it would be okay to treat myself. So, where to begin…

Skincare:

As the weather is still reasonably cold, my skin is having spells of dryness and slightly higher sensitivity, and with my current cleanser now completely run out, I needed a suitable replacement. Having used the toner from this line without any nastiness, and being 1/3 off to boot, the Superdrug own brand Simply Pure: Conditioning Cleanser for sensitive skin seemed like a good choice. I’m hoping it will keep my skin clean without aggravating my skin more than the cold already is. I look forward to reviewing this in future.

Next are sheet masks. These are reasonably new compared to the clay masks that have been on the shelves for years. I admit I am a sucker for sheet masks: they make very little mess and are a great way to relax. Until recently, I’ve only been able to find sheet masks online, so seeing these on the shelves and for 3 for 2 at that, I caved.

From left to right: a tea tree purifying mask, for when my oiliness gets the better of me; a hydrating sheet mask, because the cold winter weather is taking its toll; and finally a sheet mask with aloe vera, because my skin has been more sensitive and uncomfortable compared to usual.

Make-up:

Having hazel eyes with lots of brown in them, brown eyeshadows tend to be a safe bet when playing with looks for the eyes. I’m also a fan of the Maybelline Colour Tattoo pots, since they tend to blend well – which means even I can enhance my eyes with less risk at messing up. This is a new shade called “Chocolate Suede” which I’m hoping will really make the brown hues of my eyes pop. In the very least, it will be a nice addition to my collection of tattoo pots.

Next are my blush indulgences. While browsing I noticed a collection of new makeup by MUA. And since I forgot to bring a blush back to my parent’s I felt like it was worth picking up at least one since such a pale girl can’t possibly go without colour to her cheeks. Of course, I didn’t pick just one, but three. The top one being a very light pink shade called “Rococo”, on the left a medium pink shade called “Hedonic”, and on the right a bold darker pink shade called “Ritzy”. While the last shade is very intimidating to the eye for a pale girl like myself, testing it in-store on my hand it blended nicely on the back of my hand so I decided to take the risk. As cream formulas these should work well in the cold weather when powder blushes can’t quite cut it.

Finally, a product that’s a bit different from anything else that exists in my collection. I have eyeshadow primers, face primers, but not a lip primer. So seeing this as a new product along with the blushes, this sparked my curiosity. I’m avoiding setting expectations for this product, but I’m hoping its a worthy investment. Either way, I look forward to reviewing it in the future.

  1. That colour tattoo looks an interesting colour. I love them so much. I have four or five, but think I need more!

      They are really nice products. 🙂 I have a few of them myself: On and On Bronze, the Taupe shade, the new white shade that came out with the shade I wrote about in the post. I have a couple of others but my memory is terrible so I can’t remember which ones they are. 😛
