Highstreet Makeup Haul

Okay so this happened. Don't blame me, blame payday. I mean I didn't splurge too badly and I need actually need all of it so yeah, that's my excuse.

On yesterday's trip to Superdrug, it (thankfully) wasn't a disappointing one and I managed to pick a few goodies as pocket money prices.

So without further a-do, here's ma haul...

1. MUA Lipstick in Nectar

Okay so I've never bought a lipstick that was £1, it just doesn't seem legit. It seems almost too good to be true, but from reviews I've heard and read I thought I'd give them a go.

Like it's name, Nectar is a peachy/coral shade which is more orange than pink. It has a light yellow undertone making it a lipstick shade that'll suit most, if not all complexions. Considering the £1 price tag, the application of the lipstick is surprisingly good. The lipstick doesn't drag on the lips when applying and leaves you with a glossy, opaque finish.

This is defo a shade that's perfect for the (sunny) summer months and one that I'm looking forward to sporting on my hols.

2. MUA Lipstick in Juicy

Another pocket money buy from MUA, Juicy is a creamy pink shade of the bunch and a your-lips-but-better kinda shade. It's perfect for everyday wear and like Nectar, it applies with a breeze and lasts about 3 hours before needing to re-apply.

Unbeknown to me when I bought it, the bottom of the lipstick actually screws off and as well as getting the lipstick in the bullet form, you also get it in a small handy pot - not bad for £1, eh?

3. MUA Anti-Bleed Lip Liner in Clear

I saw this and didn't know what to think. Yes I know it's a lip liner and yes I know that lip liners are designed to stop your lipstick from bleeding but this one is clear so I had to get it - y'know to test it out. Due to it being clear, it means you can wear it with every lip shade you want and doesn't mean you have to have a different lip liner for every lipstick.

I'm yet to try it out for a long period of time but when I do, you'll be sure to see a review here asap.

Stay tuned.

4. Travel Size Garnier Micellar Water

We all know about Garnier Micellar Water (if not, where have you been?!?!) and it's one of my go-to's and a product I use on the daily (I mention it here). I picked it up in a travel size for my hols to Majorca this week and it'll be the perfect size for a weeks trip.

5. Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer in Cool Medium 2

Another go-to of mine, I mentioned here in my empties post how my concealer had finally run out and that it was time to buy a new one. At £4.19, it doesn't exactly break the bank every purchase but I was super happy when I saw that it was half price in Superdrug - and they had my shade.

6. Makeup Revolution Blush & Contour Palette in Golden Sugar

I've defo saved the best till last. This palette is a thing of beauty. It's basically makeup porn. It's just so dreamy. Just take a moment and look at it. Go on, stare at it. It's beautiful, isn't it?

This was also from Superdrug and from the Makeup Revolution concession and (listen to this bit) it was a steal at only £6 (I know amazing). For £6 the quality of the powders are amazing, they are highly pigmented and a good variety of different colours. I'm obsessed with this and all the powders are such beautiful shades that I know I'll get SO much use out of.
