Bank Holiday Haul

Another new type of blog for me!!!

I had an additional day off over the bank holiday and with something very special in the pipeline I needed to go and get a few different foundations for contouring one 2 shades lighter another 2 shades darker. I think I got it OK...I do hope so!!! I got two foundations I haven't tried before as I didn't want to spend too much on just contouring shades I chose to buy Rimmel stay matte for my light contour in ivory £5.99 and 17 (boots brand) skin perfecting shine free foundation in biscuit £5.49 for my darker contour

Now don't get me wrong I have nothing against these brands but I would never normally use their foundations, however I'll give anything a go and when testing them in the shop they seemed quite nice especially the Rimmel one plus they are half the price of my current Revlon photo ready foundation...Which I do adore!!!

Me being me I cant just buy a few bits, I'm terrible...I saw a new 17 product called blush and glow in peaches and cream at £3.60 I had to have it it felt really soft blendable and shimmery perfect for a summer popping cheek I think

Now because I spent over £6 on 17 products I got a free tin called Nautical but nice which has a red polish, greeny blue eyeshadow and a mini bluish eyeliner...This tin is so cute and really suits my current nautical style!!!

I also brought some tools during my boots visit I had 2 £5 off vouchers on Ruby and Millie or No7 so I got 2 brushes the No7 concealer brush retails at £7.50 and the Ruby and Millie i-brush retails for £6.50...I got them both for £4.00 with my two vouchers!!! Bargain!!! I also brought some latex free wedges which thank the lord do not smell, boots own brand £1.49

I then decided to go to Superdrug, now if you want good quality cheep makeup I recommend hitting Superdrug, I can always find some amazing little bargains in there, today was no exception...I haven't tried any of these products other than the shop samples so my opinion could change but I'm very happy so far with what I did get which was 3 Famous by Sue Moxley eyeshadows in matt shade 3 (beige), shimmer shade 7 (green) and shimmer shade 12 (purple), these are currently on offer 3 for 2 at £4 each I love all the colours and could have come away with the whole range!!! They feel very soft almost like the elf shadows.

I also got a few NYC bits a city duet in Soho spice £2.99 which is a peachy highlight eyeshadow and a brown contour shadow, both are fairly matt which is a godsend as most of my eyeshadows are shimmer and today I brought some matt ones at last!!! I also brought NYC colour wheel in peach glow which again would be nice for a subtle summer shimmer, it felt so soft not grainy so finely milled for £3.99 is a perfect addition to my collection and will match my corals beautifully

Lastly but by no means least the reason I went to super drug was because I was going to buy the i Divine acid pallet by sleek...I didn't I fell in love with the green shades in their original i Divine pallet...I really cant wait to play with this little beauty...cant believe it was only £4.99!!! I will review/do some make up looks with this soon!!!

I think I'm in love - Sleek Original I Divine
So what do you think???

  1. Lovely Haul.

    I love Famous Eyeshadows, I was umming and ahhring at them last friday. I have one of her old style pallets, and I saw all the packinging has changed. (I also found some of the old ones in the bargin bucket in superdrug so of course I bought them).

    As for the Sleek pallet....Hello! You'll be hooked daaaarling.

    Look forward to seeing what you think of them.

  2. Famous are so beautiful, never seen them before, it seems my superdrug has had a revamp and mow stocks more make up a whole long asile of makeup...I could have spent a fortune!!!

  3. Oooow I found Famous about 2 years ago, you got more shadow now than you used to. BUT they are sooo lush, and pigmented. Bootiful. (Fanous used to come in a silver plastic case with a diamante star on it, I prefer the packaging now).
