I was going to upload a post on my top tips for saving money but then I had a little spending accident on some new makeup products in Superdrug, so I thought I’d keep the saving post for another day and share my new purchases with you!
As a whole, I find buying makeup in Superdrug better than buying it at Boots, I think there’s a better range of brands and some more affordable ones, and I found so many products that were either new in or new to me at least so I had to give them a try!
B by Superdrug Brow Contour Kit
I’ve seen the B by Superdrug range before but never purchased anything but seeing as they’d had some new products in, I decided to try some!
The first thing I got was this brow contour kit as my current one is running a little low and this was on sale for £5.33, which I think is great value considering you get a wax, 2 brow powders and a cream highlight!
I’ve tried this once and it seems very pigmented and easy to blend but the colours are quite strong so I’d go in cautiously if you want a natural look!
B by Superdrug Eye Pigments (Carrie Lomas Collection)
I noticed they had a collaborative collection out with a makeup artist called Carrie Lomas and the products were all in really nice packaging and it looked like there was some really nice stuff!
I love loose eye pigments and I noticed there was 4 in this collection, so I picked up two shades at £3.33 each, I got ‘glamoflauge’ and ‘#itsthem’
I haven’t tried these yet but the colours look really nice!
Revolution Bake & Finish Loose Powder
I’ve tried Revolution products before and generally always been really impressed, I think their range is really modern and on-trend and they bring out some great products.
I’d been wanting a white/translucent baking powder for a while as I have the Ben Nye Banana Powder for baking but it’s too yellow for my skin tone, so I picked up this one for £5.
I haven’t tried this yet but I’ve heard some great reviews!
Revolution Liquid Highlighter Drops
Liquid highlighting drops are so popular at the moment and I didn’t have anything like this, so when I saw Revolution had a range of colours out for £6 each, I decided to pick one up.
I got the shade ‘rose gold’ and although I haven’t tried it yet, I’ve also heard these are great for both highlighting the face and mixing into foundation!
MUA Prism Strobe Cream
You may be starting to gather I went a little crazy on highlighting and illuminating products but I really don’t have any and wanted to try a few.
This strobe cream from MUA in the shade ‘sun beam’ was just £3, so I’ve decided to try it as a base for foundation and mixed into my foundation!
B by Superdrug Sheer Liquid Illuminator (Carrie Lomas Collection)
I believe this was about £6 and this one is designed as a base more than to be mixed with foundation and promises to add a natural glow to the skin.
I haven’t used a lot of the products yet but want to do a post on the best highlighting products soon, so hopefully some of these will be featured!
If you like the look of any of these, they’ll all be online at Superdrug!
