New Purchasesđź’•

I've bought quite a lot lately, in both the clothing and beauty department. It always seems that all your products run out at the same time, so need to replace them all at the once. It was only logical to create a blog post sharing what I've bought lately.

Maybelline Superstay Foundation 24 Hour || Ivory || £9.99 - I'd be lying if I didn't say I couldn't remember the last time I bought a foundation. I went through a rather long period of time where I didn't bother wearing any - which is a good thing - so I didn't find myself needing to buy any. For those who know, I work in my local Morrisons, and I have the responsibility of replenishing the makeup orders when they arrive in the delivery, and changing the stands when there's a promotion on. My friend had raved about this foundation, and when we reduced it to £7, I just had to get my hands on it. It was almost as if it were fate - I had seen people tweeting about it all week, and then I caved in and bought it. So far I am loving it, but keep an eye out for a more detailed review in the upcoming weeks.

Maybelline Colossal Go Extreme! Leather Black Mascara || £6.99 - Also reduced in my work to £5 was this mascara. I was in desperate need of a new one because 1. I am the worst at replacing my mascaras and 2. They were all drying up. I have a love/hate relationship with Rimmel mascaras so tend to avoid them, whereas Maybelline I can indefinitely rely on. I wasn't fussed which mascara I initially bought, so I just picked up one that was on deal and which I hadn't ever tried out. Upon my first few uses, I wasn't overly keen, but now that it's not as "fresh", it's working better - same applies as the above foundation, I shall update you in a few weeks time.

MUA Undress Your Skin Highlighter || Pearlescent Sheen || £3 - The only individual highlighters I have including MaryLou, a Mac one and a shimmer brick, and on a daily basis, I'm not wanting to use a high-end, expensive highlighter, and to be brutally honest, my shimmer brick ain't quite cutting it. I love MUA, and had heard good things about their highlighters so picked one up. They had a vast selection of colours available, but I went for quite a white, light colour because I'm pale and that's what I suit. I'm yet to try it, but I'm excited to do so!

Batiste Dry Shampoo Blush || 400ml || £4.99 (currently £2.47 in Superdrug) - Once you turn to dry shampoo, trust me, there's no going back. Normally I choose the cherry dry shampoo, but it wasn't in stock last time I was in Superdrug so picked up blush instead. It was cheaper to buy the 400ml than the 200ml, so logically I bought the larger tin. Batiste shampoo works really well with my hair; it freshens up the roots, gives me some volume and the best part is that it doesn't dry out my scalp. Win win! I'm looking forward to see how this one differs from the cherry one I'm used to using.

Morrisons Normal-Combination Facial Wipes || £1 - I don't use wipes to remove my makeup on a regular basis, but I just find it handy to have them - after a night out, accidentally makeup mistakes etc. I'm not normally fussy with which wipes I use as I don't have sensitive skin, so anything works with me. As I work in a supermarket, we have an immense selection of wipes, and it overwhelms me, so I just picked up these facial wipes. They're nothing special but they do the jobs!

Body Fantasies Perfume Body Spray || Pink Grapefruit || £3.99 (currently £1.98) - I like to carry a body spray with me throughout the day for a quick top-up and refreshment. For ages, I had been using an old, trusty Hollister spray (oh how so 2013..) but it's beginning to run low so there's no point in bringing it. I know that Superdrug are stocked up to the max with body sprays, and at a low price, I knew I would be able to find something. Their body fantasies range was reduced half price, and they smelt quite nice, so I picked up their grapefruit one. I didn't initially smell it because I'm a rebel (joking, I knew it'd be nice) and it turns out that it's fruity and refreshing, ideal!

I've also bought some clothing items, so if you'd like to see a haul or OOTDs/lookbooks, let me know!



  1. ooo the body mist looks lush! I need to try a new one, i've had my VS one for the longest time it needs replacing.

    1. If I'm honest, it's not one I've ever seen much about! x

  3. Honestly, I've never liked the mascara you picked up. I swear my eyelashes rebelled but I'm hoping it works for you!

    1. I have really stubborn right eyelashes, they don't perform quite as well as my left! So far, it's been ok! x
