Recent Drugstore Pickups



I recently took a little trip to Boots as I needed a new mascara and I ended up coming out with one, but with quite a few other items in tow.

I did a whole post dedicated to the Fleur & Fabulous lashes which you can find here, so I am not going to go into huge detail. But, since that review I have bought this pair as I liked them so much. I don't need to cut them to size, and they give just the right amount of length and volume without being over the top. At £5.95 they are great value, and it is great that they also come with adhesive.

To the mascara which I headed into store for. I was going to buy my holy grail MaxFactor False Lash Effect, but I have seen so many reviews saying how great the Maybelline Lash Sensation was I thought I would try it out. I choose the new waterproof version, as I always opt for it if there is the choice. I have big expectations for this, so hopefully it will produce the goods.

I have been wanting to get my hands on the Maybelline Color Sensation Matte  range for ages now as they look really beautiful. I picked up two colours Divine Wine and Magnetic Magenta. The whole range looked really lovely, but I had to whittle it down to just two to try out. Divine Wine looks like the perfect autumnal berry shade, which is the exact reason why I picked it up. Magnetic Magenta is a vivid pink, which I love all year round and this is a really lovely shade. I am excited at the fact that they are creamy and not too drying which is the problem with many matte lipsticks.

Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Stick in Technicoral is a lovely mid toned orange. I have lots of vibrant oranges and I like the fact that is more of a gloss rather than a lipstick. I really love Soap & Glory as a brand and I am always trying out their skincare pieces. I have never really ventured into their makeup range, so I was excited to pick this up and test it out. It is currently on offer for £3.50 as it is a new launch, there is a good variety of colours within the range so I suggest you check them out next time you pop down to Boots.

Another Soap & Glory item I picked up is Sexy Mother Pucker Lip Plumping Gloss in Pink Apricot. The first thing you notice about this is the scent is very similar to Terry's chocolate orange. I initially loved the idea but I think it might become a little sickly once I have it on my lips. I will test it out and report back. I picked this up thinking I could wear it with the gloss stick as they are both peachy toned products.

The Boots Essential Cucumber Wipes are my go to wipes out of any brand. At just £1.50 they do the job perfectly, and I always make sure to pick up a pack whenever I am in store. They also always put these on a 2 packets for £2 offer, which is insanely great value. I like the scent of cucumber as it leaves the skin refreshed and seems to add a little cooling to my face. I would definitely recommend these just to help with touching up makeup, and also for those lazy nights where you want a quick solution to getting your makeup off.
