Lately, I've been finding myself pulled towards the likes of Boots and Superdrug and steering away from the high end concessions. Now, I'm not saying that my love for luxury has died completely, I just think the drugstore is having a moment right now. Brands have been launching products left, right and centre and some have been too gorgeous to avoid. I found myself perusing the aisles of Superdrug yesterday, looking to pick up some essentials and also to treat myself after finishing my degree (would you like a post on my university experience?) and found that all cosmetics were on 3 for 2, so I felt I should oblige.
Bourjois Magic Nail Polish Remover; £4.99 - Another essential I've been meaning to pick up was the Bourjois nail polish remover. This will be my third pot of the gimmicky goodness and I just love it. It removes nail polish almost immediately and leaves a gorgeous fruity smell behind - my only hang up is that it's not toe friendly (don't pretend you haven't tried!).
Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer; £4.19 - Unless you were born yesterday, you'll know this product is very much loved and raved about in the UK. I picked up another tube as I'm currently scraping the edges of my old one. It provides amazing coverage, it doesn't cling to dry patches or looks cakey on the skin and it's only £4.19 - bargain!
Sleek Shimmer Blush in Pomegranate; £4.49 - Sleek's a brand I haven't really ventured into much, apart from a lipstick and the infamous contour kit but when I saw this blush I couldn't not get it. It's slightly more plummy in real life and it's definitely more of an autumn colour but I'm going to try and make it work for the summer - it could even be a great crease colour on the eye. I've just swatched it and the pigmentation is lovely so I'm excited to try it.
Maybelline Colour Sensation Vivids in Shocking Coral; £7.19 - I passed the Maybelline concession without a second glance until the word 'Vivids' caught my eye and I remembered seeing some of the lipsticks on YouTube. I spied Shocking Coral, a true coral shade and popped it into my basket. I swatched this once I got home and the colour really is vivid, plus it has a really nice smell to it.
Bourjois Cream Blush in Nude Velvet (#01) and Rose Tender (#03); £7.99 - Bourjois are famous for their Little Round Pot blushers, but they've just launched their new cream blushers, complete with that Bourjois rose scent. Admittedly, this is the reason I wanted to go into Superdrug and out of the four shades on offer, these two stood out the most. I've really been enjoying cream blushers lately and I'm excited to try these.
Have you picked up any goodies from Boots or Superdrug lately?
