Getting Ready For Spring | Makeup Haul

Recently, I've managed to get my hands on some pretty good deals whilst signing up to things online including a £20 gift voucher for Superdrug - This only cost me a £1 to sign up too. I had some Love2shop vouchers left, though, I only used one - £10. I only ended up using about £6.00 of my own cash which isn't bad doing. So with these benefits I embarked on a spree to get me makeup ready for Spring. Here's what I got:



A great selection for lips, nail, face and my first haul or makeup spree for 2014.


Left to right; Elusive and vivacious

These are two of the new shades added to the Revlon colorburst collection
Elusive is one popular shade, I went into Superdrug three times this week and it was never in stock, elusive is from the matte range and comes in matte packaging. It look's barbie pink but it couldn't be far from that, it's a nude/pink but looks great on the lips almost like it's got a hint of coral to it. Like a coral, nude pink if that's possible it's really had to explain but it's so feminine and will compliment many skin tones. I had to go Boots to get this, which was £7.99, but in the 3 for 2 fortunately. 

The other vivacious on the other hand was only £4.99 from Superdrug, they all have £2.00 knocked off - if you want to grab a few now. Vivacious is a gorgeous lacquer and so bold and beautiful, definitely a statement shade, it's got a hint of shimmer to it and very complimentary on the lips.


I got some top ups of my everyday products; Foundation and stay matte powder both from Rimmel. Superdrug have an offer on where the foundation is just £4.99 but only until Monday (a generous £4 off). 

I also treated myself to two nail polishes. I've had this beautiful holographic polish screenshot for a while. It's from Gosh, of course, and is the famous holographic hero - Though I've heard the formula has changed since it's hey day, I still found swatches online to be beyond beautiful and added it to my basket and for £3.99, it was worth every penny and more just for the final finish. 

Then for free in the 3 for 2, I picked up this pretty matte finish pastel from the new silk collection from Barry M. Meadow is a beautiful mint green pastel and will look great this spring. I really want blossom too.


I've wanted one of the Barry M palette's for a while and whilst it was 3 for 2 at Boots, I thought it was time to pick one up. I've many dark, smokey eyed shades, but not a lot of neutral in my palette drawer and decided out of the three, the Natural Glow palette was the one for me. Inside are two applicators, 6 subtle natural shades (some matte and some with, the gorgeous shimmer, that I love), and a pastel pink blush with shimmer. I'm still hoping for the naked 3 palette though (who isn't).

Expect lots of reviews coming soon.

    1. I'm really liked them. I thought the matte one would be a little dry and cakey looking, I was so wrong, it applied beautifully and feels quite moisturising on the lips x

  6. Nice choices hun, the barry m palette looks similar to urban decay ones. I'm still waiting for the Urban decay naked 3 palette too, I went past their counter in department stores quite a few times lately but resisted the urge, xoxo.

    1. Yeah I guess it does, but I don't think the shades are as pigmented as the UD palettes, it's a beautiful palette but I wish the shades were a little stronger in colour when applied. xx
