It finally feels like summer has arrived, which is a great excuse to get a little more colourful. Superdrug's own brand B. have released some absolutely gorgeous limited edition products for summer, which I have a feeling will be a big hit for even neutral lovers like me.
|L-R Breeze lipstick, Tropic eye shimmer and eye shadow trio swatches|
For me, the hero product out of these three has to be the B. Vibrant Eye Shimmer in Tropic. A highly pigmented, creamy eye shadow, this can be applied as a soft wash all over the lid, used as a liner or blended in as part of an aqua themed eye look.
I've used several of these shadows before and have found them to be really long-lasting and also good at resisting creasing. While the colour might seem quite bold (the photo shows a one swipe swatch), I think summer is the perfect time to get a bit more experimental with your makeup and at £6.99 it's a good price to test it out and see how you get on.
The B. Complete eyeshadow palette in Pop* is a pastel eyeshadow lover's dream. It contains matte pink, green and blue shades, as well as a primer to help build the intensity of the shadows and make them last a bit longer.
While these aren't the most pigmented of shadows, the formula is pretty good and used with the primer should last you about 8 hours on your lids. I quite like blending the blue and green shade together with another more shimmery shadow for a mermaid inspired look. The quad is £6.99, which I think is great value.
The last item in the collection is a new shade of their B. Rich Lipstick in Breeze*. I love the satin formula of this lipstick as it combines great pigmentation with hydration, so you can wear it for hours without getting that horrible dry lips feel. It also has an SPF 15, helping to protect your lips from burning while you wear it (and yes, you can get sunburnt lips).
Breeze isn't the best shade for my skin tone, but I think it would look great if you have a tan and I love the limited edition floral packaging and pop out lipstick design. I'll definitely be investigating other shades in this formula. £7.99
Have you tried anything from B. before? Do you like the look of this limited edition range?
