Mini drugstore haul!

hello my lovelies,
you know how it is, can't leave boots or superdrug without buying something!
so today i thought i would share with you the few things that i have picked up over the past couple of days.

can we just take a moment for my bedsheets 


firstly i am going to start with a product which isn't from boots or superdrug, it's from a dutch brand called Hema. you can find them in Birmingham Grand Central Station or online. the shop sells everything from food, to stationary. from there i picked up the bye bye eye makeup remover oil just to make sure that i get all my mascara off at night ready for a nice application in the morning.

now we can hit boots where i went to the NYX stand which i had been waiting for, for months. whilst there i had to pick up one of there hd concealers in 01 porcelain. and then i had to get my hands on one of there matte liquid lipsticks, i went for a nice nude shade to start and picked up the colour Istanbul, and from my first impression of that i will be going back to get more.

then i hit superdrug, which seems to be my drugstore of choice for makeup. whilst there i picked up the miss sporty InstaGlow foundation, the brand has really stepped up it's game lately and i wanted to see what there new products were like, so i picked it up in 001 ivory (for my pale days) and 002 light for when i have fake tanned.

then i was on the hunt for a new lip balm, i have the driest skin and lips known to man at the moment, but i love matte lipsticks so i need to tackle the lips pronto, so i picked up the Blistex intensive moisturiser, to hopefully turn my pout from the desert that it is.

the Nivea post shave balm, i think is the right product anyway discovered by NikkieTutorials to be the holy grail base for makeup so i though it would give it ago.

then to finish of i picked up the Freedom pro studio fixing spray to hopefully help with making matte foundations looking a bit more normal on my skin.

Anything with a hue of purple

Hello my lovelies,

Lipstick is one of my favourite items of make-up, I never think that you can own to many. They always help bring together any make up look and often just make you look more put together. When it comes to this oh so fabulous item anything that is slightly on the purple side is right up my alley and normally in my stash before I know it.

So for today mini post I am going to share with you my six purple lipsticks from my collection.

 My first ever purple lipstick was the one on the left, Rebel by M.A.C. This is my favourite lipstick of all time and is always what i go to when I have no idea which lipstick to pick.

I also have Heroine by M.A.C in the middle. The one on the right is Dodgy Girl, from the Kelly Osbourne M.A.C collaboration.


This is most expensive lipstick, and it is Tom Ford Bruised Plum.







Channel Rouge Allure, Rayonnante








Maybelline, colour sensational, Plum Passion
