Mini High Street / Drugstore Haul

Drugstore Haul

Wanted to share a mini drugstore/high street as picked up a few things I am excited to use. It was just a quick trip round Superdrug as my friends were up for a browse of the shops after a spot Afternoon Tea and all their purchases made me want to pick up a wee something too!

Rimmer Loafer Lover for you

First up is Rimmel London’s Lasting Finish Nail Polish in 405: Loafer Lover For You (£3.69) my friend was wearing this when we met and it instantly caught my eye. It is a beautiful rich bright blue with a wonderful shine. I have lots of other colours from this range, they always paint on easily and last well. Can’t wait to try this, I will get a picture up when I do!

Next is the Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder. (£3.99) I have read alot of positive chatter about this on the blogsphere and finally got round to picking this up. To be used on top of my foundation to set and hopefully increase wear time. I went for the shade 001 Transparent.

Rimmel eyeshadow paint

It was a 3 for 2 on Rimmel products at Superdrug so of course i had to pick something else. I was very tempted to get another nail polish but decided I should resist and try something new. I picked this Scandeleyes, Eye Shadow Paint in Rich Russett (£4.99). To be honest I hadn’t heard of this product before, but liked it when swatched.

Swatched Rimmel Scandaleyes

It is metallic when first applied but blends to a more semi-matte which I liked. I don’t think i would wear the un-blended colour but love it when smudged.

Rimmel Lip Butter

Finally, I bought a Revon Lip Butter in 001 Pink Truffle (£7.99). I love the Lip butter range, they glide on with nourishing feel of lip balm and have a nice colour pay-off. I though this colour was nice for everyday and would be suitable for the office.

As I mentioned this trip followed afternoon tea with the girls, I tweeted  a pic of the feast of cakes, pastries, tray bakes and sandwiches we enjoyed if you are interested. I really love afternoon tea, very glad it is in fashion at the moment as it means so many more places offer it! Especially love it when served with a cheeky glass of fizz or cocktails!
