I’d been attempting to be good and to stay away from beauty related shops as much as possible this month, but it turns out resistance was futile. After running out of mouthwash, I decided to pay a visit to Superdrug to stock up and as you can see below, I left with a lot of lovely goodies* but no mouthwash. Yes, I’m THAT person.
I couldn’t resist a peek at the Makeup Revolution stand as my local shop has only just had one added and ended up choosing the Iconic Pro 1 palette. I recently got the Lorac Pro palettes in a US haul (post here) so it’ll be interesting to see how this compares against Makeup Revolution’s rather lovely looking dupe.
Because you can never have enough eye shadow palettes and because I was feeling rather bold in my colour choice, I thought I’d give Sleek’s new Del Mar Volume 2 palette a try. This has one or two neutral shades (yay!) but a lot more summery brights and I thought it’d be a good way to dip my toe in the water of eye shadows that weren’t brown or gold. Scary times.
CoLab dry shampoo is a repurchase every time I enter Superdrug, so I picked up a new bottle of that and also refilled my micellar water stash with this fantastic one from B. which at less than £3 (it’s currently half price) is an amazing bargain beauty buy.
Last up was another Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet to add to my collection in the shade Pink Pong. I’ve been looking for the perfect long lasting bright pink lipstick and I have a feeling this will be the one!
What was especially great about this haul was that I managed to pay for almost all of it with the points on my Superdrug Health and Beauty Card. They’ve recently given this a bit of a new look, so if you don’t have one yet, I highly recommend nabbing yourself one next time you’re in a Superdrug store. You’ll earn 1 point per £1 spent and every 100 points = £1 credit to spend in store; there are also lots of extra points offers to help you build up points more quickly.
I love the fact that you can also part pay for your purchases with your points – unlike Boots, where you have to buy the whole thing with your points, Superdrug lets you pay partly with points and partly with cash, so you don’t have to spend forever saving up enough for one item. Yay! That’s exactly what I did with this haul and it was nice to feel almost guilt free about a few ‘accidental’ purchases, he he…
Have you spotted anything in Superdrug that’s caught your eye lately? Do you have one of their Health & Beauty points cards?
