It’s been a while since I’ve posted a haul! That said, it’s been a while since I’ve bought enough to warrant one. To be fair, it’s all pretty basic stuff I’ve bought really, but I wanted to do a quick haul post anyway as I hope to review some of this stuff. Sorry, this doesn’t have too many pictures really.. My internet isn’t wanting to let me upload them for some reason.
We have your good ol’ cotton wool pads, self explanatory really. I got 4 packs of these as I’m very low on them, they always get used and they’re on offer.. though they usually are.
RT Brushes are buy one and get one half price, I thought I would indulge. These are my first RT brushes and I aim to compare the gold brush with the knock off I got on eBay, they’re identical and feel very similar quality, though I’ve not actually used any product with the RT brush, but my knock offs are excellent so.. these should be amazing?
I have issues with the packaging though, or rather, what’s written on it. I should have taken a photo of the back. It says they’re high tech tools. High tech tools? Love, it’s some fake hair on a stick, it’s not really high tech. Paintbrushes (on record) have been around since the 17th centuary and make up brushes are simply a modification of that.. And you can have the poshest, most expensive tools in the world, it doesn’t suddenly make you not shit. You need to know how to use the tools you’re equipped with. Of course, high quality tools do help though. My make up application improved with both practice and a tool upgrade! Somebody will fall for the “expert tools will make you an expert” ans so I guess it’s a good marketing ploy really, but there are some amazing MUAs who have spent years and years developing their skills, they didn’t get talented from having a decent brush. I think it’s hand in hand with marketing for their actual tutorials as well which again, makes sense from a marketing standpoint, it’s actually quite clever. They’re only words, but it miffed me a little. *waits to be pelted with tomatos* Just my opinion, I’m entitled to it. Packaging aside, they are great brushes as far as I can tell/at first glance/rubbing that fluffiness all over my face.
I have the fourth and as far as I know, newest adition to Superdrugs Mud Therapy range. I review the other three in one post when this one didn’t exist.. or wasn’t in the shop, and they’re all excellent. You can see the review here if you like. The others weren’t in stock so I picked up two of these without even considering if it might not be as good. As well as the naturally radiant micro-polish as it was 3 for 2 on selected superdrug stuff.
I also got their Cherry & Fig shampoo & conditioner which has been featured in empties posts in the past, but they’ve changed the size/packaging. They’re more expensive but also bigger. Now it has a flip top on both instead. The conditioner was smaller and was a pump bottle. Now it’s a same size duo. Hurrah! I dunno if the forumla has changed, it looks the same. It made my hair softer and fuller, so going for that now I’m done trying some John Frieda stuff I’ll be telling you about soon.
I also got a Look Beauty polish in Kimono if I recall rightly, the Chanel Peridot dupe.. Rimmel Scandaleyes in Bronze as my other is very small now.. and a sleek blusher in Flushed, as make up is also on 3 for 2. I also bought a red colour effects to make the transition of my permanant dye leaving my hair a little less drastic. Hair dye in winter? Ain’t nobody got time fo that! It’s a shame the price has gone from 99p to £1.50 though. 50% price hike? Eesh. And lastly, I picked up B. Micellar water which I’ve been wanting to try! Yay. They’re half price at the moment. The lovely Vicki wrote a brief review of it as a product she’s recently loving. I think it was her posting about it that made me aware to its existence! I’d heard of B. and saw it in my Superdrug a while back, but never picked anything up so I’m excited to try this. My skin is awful at the moment!
Superdrug have a fair few offers on at the moment, as well as free delivery with orders over £10.
