mini "drugstore" haul

Hey Guys!

Since I've been ill I've been unable to leave the house, I decided to order some stuff from, for those outside the UK, its probably the biggest and best known drugstore that sells from Maybelline and Rimmel to Benefit and Urban Decay. Anyhoo, I love it because its just soooo convienient.

I decided to wear them and show you what they're like on, except all the lipsticks, because I got 2 and a lipgloss, so for practicality I chose one! Since it was a "natural" eye palette I decided not to wear my usual amount of eyeliner so it's a bit "nude" for my normal look, but its for the purpose of showing the eyeshadows (: And PLEASE excuse the facial expressions, I'm still getting over being sick and I am on sooo many flu tablets I'm tired all the time haha! that is NOT how i normally look! thanks guys x

Altogether I bought:

Revlon ColorStay Foundation for normal/dry skin (heard it was a MAC Studio Fix dupe and I LOVE mac so I thought i'd try it out and maybe save cash in the future)

Maybelline EyeStudio Quad in Glamourous Browns (tried it for the photo and the shadows are so smooth and quite pigmented. love it!)

Barry M Lip Paint in 101 - Marshmellow (a Barry M Lip Paint... need I say more?!)

Barry M Kohl Pencil in Gold (didn't like it as much as I thought I would... its okay)

Barry M Limited Edition Lipgloss - no colour name or anything just LE1 (smells gorgeous and is so pretty and sparkly! such a winner!)

17 Blusher in Nude (was a bit muddy at first and needed a lot of blending but good colour in the end)

17 Solo Eyeshadow in Mardi Gras (which I buy ALL the time! amazing pigment and I love the colour)

17 Lasting Fix Lipstick in Dare to Bare (it wasn't as *nude* as I thought it would be, but I still like it)

And finally, although I didn't buy them at Boots, I bought them today as well:

Body Shop Passion Fruit Shower Gel (smells DIVINE!)

Body Shop Roseflower Radiance Stick 01 (a great highlighter with a pinky undertone and smells of roses. lush!)

As I mentioned above, a few products came that wasn't what I thought it would be, for example the 17 Lipstick, it was more red based and not very nude... and I hate to say I was disapointed with the colour and texture of the Barry M Kohl pencil... has anyone ever bought something online and it wasn't the colour/quality you thought it would be.

Let me know! It just feeds my nosiness ;)



  1. looks beautiful!!

    I love shopping at drug stores, even the ones with higher more $$ brands!!

  2. @obsessed thanks love! aw yeah me too! and it's so much easier to get, I don't know how many times I've went to MAC only to find what I'm looking for is "sold out" because there's so much hype xx
