Recent beauty buys...

Just a quick post on some little purchases I made in Superdrug recently! I picked up this glass nail file for £4.99 and this hand cream for £1.98 as I'm trying everything I can to improve my poorly nails! The Vaseline cream feels lovely and is just the right size for a handbag, really recommend picking it up whilst it is still on offer. This MUA lipstick (at £1 - amazing!) I picked up after reading Sandra's review here on The Black Pearl blog, check it out, great lippy.

I also scored lucky again for the third time in Superdrug's reduced section! This Maybelline eyeshadow duo was only £1.99 and I was drawn to the shimmering colours. It is called 410 - Azur Silver and is likely to be discontinued as it is reduced. The colour payout is pretty gentle... it rubs off quite easily to be honest, but still pretty! I also got reduced a GOSH 'extreme art eye liner', in 26 - which is basically a grey toned rainbow glitter! Again reduced at £1.99 and not a very dense colour payout but hopefully buildable.

My star buy of the week is this amazing contour kit by Sleek. It's not cheap at £9.99 but such a worthwhile buy. It comes in three shades and I picked up the 'light' which contains a dark shade without glitter for contouring under your cheek bones, a perfect shimmer highlighter for the top of your cheeks, and a gorgeous golden peach hue for the apples of your cheeks.

And here it is on me! (Base is Loreal True Match). I love the dimensional effect you can create with this kit. Currently I don't own any professional brushes - maybe for Christmas, so I hope I have demonstrated that it is an easy look that everyone can create with this palette. I picked it up in Superdrug's Marble Arch store as 'Face Form' only seems to be in the larger stores.
