Summer Beauty Haul

IMG_2501

So over the past couple of days, I have either ordered online, or picked up quite a few bits from Boots and Superdrug, so I thought it was only right to do a little haul. Actually, I bought more than I realised so I will be doing two separate hauls; a beauty haul and a skincare haul.

Starting with all things make-up and beauty…

I went slightly OTT in Superdrug as they had a 3 for 2 offer across all cosmetics – well, it’d be rude not to, eh?

I am obsessed with matte liquid lipsticks and when I saw that Tanya Burr had released some, I had to try them out. The shade I picked up was Martha Moo, and this is the perfect nude shade with pink, mauvey undertones. It looks quite bright when you first apply it but darkens slightly as it dries. It doesn’t dry out my lips, or have that sticky consistency that others do, it is really comfortable to wear. The packaging of this product, and the rest of Tanya Burr Cosmetics, is absolutely gorgeous. They feel very luxurious considering the prices of the products and the products are of such high quality. I cannot wait for my local store to stock more of these products so I can try more out, I am particularly excited for the new eye shadow palettes!

Something that I have been desperate to try for ages, but has always been out of stock in my local store, is the Bourjois Radiance Reveal Concealer in the shade 01. I am yet to find a concealer that beats the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer, so I am excited to try this one out and see how the two compare!

Not that I needed any new mascaras, but I picked up two new releases. The first one is by Maybelline and this is the Lash Sensational Luscious Mascara. I could not get on with the original Lash Sensational at all, as much as I tried and tried, it just wasn’t for me, however, I thought I’d give this one a try. The brush on this is very different to the original Lash Sensational and Maybelline describes it as an “extraordinary patented fanning brush”. I have used this a couple of times and so far, so good! It grabs every lash and really does give that “multiplying effect” that it promises to give.

The other mascara I bought is another new release, but by L’Oreal and this is the Miss Hippie Mega Volume Mascara. This mascara has a bristle brush as opposed to a plastic brush, and really lengthens and volumises lashes, giving them a feathery, fluttery finish. I have only used this a handful of times but I am loving this so far and can’t wait to use it some more.

Another new release by Rimmel is the Brow This Way range. I picked up the Highlighting Pencil and the Brow Styling Gel. I am a big fan of brow gels, I think they really help improve the appearance of brows, making them look sharper and more defined so I can’t wait to try this out – I got the shade Dark Brown. I have been searching high and low for a drugstore brow highlighting pencil so I was super excited when I saw that Rimmel had released one. I tend to use a regular highlighter as a brow bone highlight, so I am really looking forward to trying this out.

Another new product from Rimmel is the 24hr Wear Colour Precise Eyeliner. The L’Oreal Superliner is my all time favourite eyeliner; however, I am always on the look-out for something even better. The shape of this eyeliner looks like it will be ideal for creating the perfect winged liner.

From Barry M, I picked up a lip liner in the shade 17 which is a nude shade with brown undertones. It lasts really well and looks lovely paired with MAC’s Whirl or Velvet Teddy. I am super impressed and will definitely be picking up some more shades! I also picked up two nail varnishes from Barry M. I got the shade Dark Side of the ‘Shroom from the Sunset Daylight Curing range and Copper Mine from the new Molten Metal range. Barry M are my favourite brand for nail varnishes, the quality of them are amazing and they last such a long time.

From Revlon, I picked up the ColorStay Foundation in the shade Buff. I have never tried this foundation before and have heard such great things about it, and seeing as I am on the hunt for a new drugstore foundation, I thought I’d give it a try. I got this in the satin finish for normal/dry skin as I much prefer a dewy, glowy look as opposed to a matte finish, especially for this time of year.

The final thing, I ordered from Beauty Bay and is definitely more of a high-end purchase than high-street. This is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance eye shadow palette. I cannot get over how stunning this palette is! The packaging is really luxurious; a mauvey-pink colour and is also suede. Each and every shade is absolutely beautiful and I am SO excited to experiment with this palette! I will be doing a detailed review on this palette once I have tried and tested it out properly!

    1. Honestly, I absolutely love it! All of the shades are really pigmented and they last for ages, and I don’t use an eyeshadow primer! Such a good variety of shades too. I am thinking of doing a seperate blog post reviewing this palette, actually! The only thing I will say, it there is quite a lot of excess when you tap your brush with the product on, but it is hardly something to complain about given the quality of the product!
