Superdrug Haul

Over the last 2 weeks i went a bit crazy on the Superdrug website. (as you can tell from these photos) I especially went lipstick crazy, buying in total, 10 lipsticks! I've never really been into beauty, well no where near as much as i am in to fashion, but recently, i just want so many beauty products! I'm happy with the products i've bought and i've already tried some of them. I had 2 deliveries to the house, and then one trip to Superdrug and this is everything i bought in total!

These lipsticks are in an array of colours. Some are more brown nude tones, and others are pink toned. I like having lots of different lipsticks to choose from, and at these lipsticks costing no more than £2.50 each, i'd of been silly not to buy a few. As you can see from the photo, the two MUA lipsticks are more shimmery than the others, whereas the Makeup Revolution lipsticks are quite matte. I think these lipsticks are great colours for the Summer and i look forward to wearing them.

If you haven't realised by now, a lot of these lipsticks are from Makeup Revolution. The lipsticks they do are at absolute BARGAIN prices. Two of these lipsticks are good for a statement look, that is the red and the deep pinky-purple colours. One of these lipsticks is a shimmer while the rest are matte as you can see by the shine on the lipstick from where the light has caught it. The middle lipsticks is from the new Rimmel X Kate Moss Nude Range. They're are some beautiful shades but i liked the shade 42 best as it's peachy toned. I can't actually find this range on the Superdrug website so you may have to pick the new Kate Moss lipsticks up in store or on the Boots website.

I've never really been in to skincare. I've got super soft skin so i've just never thought to look after it properly. Recently though, after watching a lot of YouTube tutorials, i've decided i really need to start looking after my skin. I see bloggers and youtubers talk about toner and cleanser so i thought i should buy some. Both products were inexpensive so i thought i may as well give looking after my skin a go. Now considering i've bought these products, you'd think i'd know what they do, how to use them etc. I haven't any idea. Like, which one do you use first and stuff like that. I think i need to read a few more blog posts and watch a few more youtube videos before i can use this, though i am excited to see if it makes a difference to my skin!

Here are just a few other make-up bits i bought. I bought this concealer from MUA and it works perfectly for me under the eyes. So happy i bought it. I can't find the MUA primer on the website now, so i am unable to link it. I haven't made my mind up on this primer yet, so i'll report back on it at a later date. The blending brush i bought, i'm actually going to use to blend in my concealer, even though it's meant to be used for eye-shadow blending, but i don't care, and if it does the job why should it matter what it's meant to be used for! This gorgeous shimmery eye-shadow palette from Makeup Revolution was only £4 and i'm really happy with it. I've only used a couple of the shades but so far so good.

I haven't really been using any heat protector on my hair for a while, and recently i've felt that it's actually getting quite dry. Just as a precaution i thought i would buy this heat protecting styling spray before using any heat products. I'm yet to try it out, but i'm sure i'll feature it either on my twitter @courtzmelv or here on my blog sharing my feelings on it. I've never been able to curl my hair. The only times i've had it with some proper waves is when one of my friends have done it for me. I really wanted to start being able to do it on my own, and as i just cannot figure out how to do it with a straightener, i decided to buy this curling wand. I haven't tried it yet, but i'm so excited to see if i am able to give my hair some proper waves!

Anyways, i hope you liked this Superdrug haul! Let me know if you want me to do a post on the lipsticks, swatching them etc :) What are you loving from Superdrug at the moment?

OOTD: Bardot Stripes

Primark Gem Rings (similar here)

Recently i have been on a major 'lets spend all my money on clothes' binge. I have had so many deliveries coming to my door with either clothes or beauty products. I think i may have a slight problem with spending money.
I made an order on ASOS which cost me about £100, and in that order were the two items i'm wearing in these photos. This gorgeous striped bardot dress is just stunning, i saw it and just had to have it. I'm absolutely loving stripes at the moment, and when i saw that this dress had been reduced to £15, it went straight in my basket. I think this style of dress is really flattering too. I love skater style dresses and mixed with the stripes and bardot neckline it's just my idea of the perfect dress. Now onto my shoes. Aren't they just he most beautiful shoes you've ever seen? They were £28 on ASOS and the moment i saw them they went into my saved items list. I'd go back and look at them constantly, and i finally made the decision to buy them and i'm so glad i did. I'm even thinking of buying another pair for when this pair are a bit ruined. I spent the entire day when they arrived with them on my feet wearing them in, and now they are so comfortable to wear. I love the lace up ballet shoe style and the fact that this pair were at such a reasonable price, it would of been stupid of me not to buy them. I'd recommend these shoes 100% as they are just fabulous!
