Mini Superdrug Haul + Review | CharlotteBehappy

Hello everyone, how are you? Today I thought I'd share a mini haul post with you. However, like always, to spice it up a bit I've tried out the products so I can let you know if they're any good. Let me know what drugstore products you've been enjoying in the comments down below. 

I wasn't particularly interested in buying this foundation when it was released. A while back I tried the L'oreal Eau de something foundation which is a sort of equivalent to this. This is one of those liquid to powder foundations and with the L'oreal one, I found it a bit orange, and very drying, and it clung to dry patches. I thought I might as well give this a whirl, mostly because it was 2 for £10 at Superdrug and this was the most expensive thing along with the concealer below. When I got this in the post I was literally like 'what the flippidy flip' (maybe not literally). It looked so dark! I also had really low low expectations of this because it had an annoying dropped applicator which doesn't work as a pipette but just a strange stick.

However I wasn't pleasantly surprised. It matched me perfectly. It left a smooth finish which was matte for sure but not dull. It wasn't the easiest to blend because of the watery consistency but once it set, it was smooth and set. It covered redness perfectly without the need for extra concealer but it didn't cover my freckles and left a really natural finish (something which for me is REALLY hard to come by). All in all this wholly impressed me and definitely outranks the similar L'oreal foundation. Mine is in the shade Ivory and this along with the dream matte mousse foundation has made Maybelline the queen of foundations for me. You can get it here where it's a whole £2 cheaper than the L'oreal foundation.

This is what I meant to buy when I ventured onto Superdrug because this was sold out everywhere. This was also another product where it looked way too dark when I opened the package. I even snapchatted (charlottebehaps) a friend who recommended this concealer and she remarked how dark it looked. I honestly thought they screwed up my order until I saw it said 'light' (apologies super drug, you delivered really quickly). I just want to add that this goes really quickly! It's disappointing since it's pretty pricey as far as concealers go, but I probably use it more than the ordinary person.

So it applied with a sponge applicator which is pretty gross if you ask me, but again it matched me perfectly. It doesn't cover redness as much as my beloved Bourjois concealer (side note: as much as a love that concealer, I never repurchase anything since I always want to try new things), but it doesn't catch on dry skin either. It creases pretty badly, more so than the bourjois one but I think that's mostly because it's a lot lighter, which makes it easier to blend. It's definitely not so heavy duty. Does it 'rewind' age? Not at all. I have crows feet already by my eyes (not that I mind particularly) but this creased like a bitch, and like most concealers. This is definitely not worth the price. The bourjois one has a more inconvenient tube but they're roughly the same price so I felt like that was more worthy of my money. If it sounds like it may be right for you personally, you can pick it up here. It's currently 3 for 2 on all Maybelline at Superdrug.

I'd been using my Miss Sporty clear mascara for about 2 years (you think I'm kidding but I'm not) so I thought it's finally time for a new one. This Rimmel one was the same price at £2.99 (free bronzer if you spend £9+, god I love super drug's offers) but you get a lot less for your money. The brush is a lot smaller than the Miss Sporty one because this one is actually for your eyebrows and that's definitely helpful. A lot of product does come off at once so I do find myself scrapping off excess at the side of the tube, but other than that, there's not much else to say. It does its job.

I'd only ever tried curling my lashes a couple of times before and without much success. However I thought I'd give it a try. Curling is usually hit of miss for me. Sometimes it makes a difference and my lashes hold a curl and it seems worth it. Sometimes it does nothing or the curls drop so there was no real point. All in all, I feel as though I have benefitted overall but I can't say it's life changing. Get them here, now £1.79.

Made it to the end of the post? Well done! I know it's a bit ramble-y. I'm so glad to be back and into the swing of blogging again.
