On my most recent trip to Superdrug with a few friends (one being a fellow blogger whose link I have posted at the bottom of the page), I wasn't actually looking to buy anything…that idea failed. So I will let you know what I
bought and if the products were a good or bad purchase.
Before I do this I will let you all know
that after purchasing the products, I tried to find them again on the Superdrug
website and they were nowhere to be seen. If you do want to purchase them for
yourself I’d recommend going in store to get them.
FAMOUS Firstly I came across a brand called
FAMOUS which I had never heard of. I didn’t pay much attention to most of the products;
however their lipstick range caught my eye immediately. I am in love with the
lipstick packaging first of all. The smooth glossy case is a winner in my eyes.
By pulling the tab on the end it releases the lipstick tube from the case. This
is a very cute and different idea which I haven’t seen from any other lipstick
range before. BONUS points for design! The shade I bought was shade 4- Coral
Reef. The lipstick itself comes out a beautiful colour however I am not a fan
of the texture. It does have a glossy look which I like, however the texture is
very oily and feels more like Vaseline. Oily lipsticks are not made for long
wear so if you purchase this product expect to re-apply regularly. If a soft
moisturising lipstick is what you are looking for then I would recommend this
SLEEK Another makeup brand which I have never
purchased from was Sleek. I must say that I wanted to purchase every single
product in every single colour. This range definitely got me excited! I
purchased a lipstick in shade 771- Baby Doll Sheen. It is a very small tube so
you don’t get that much but the colour and ease of application makes up for it.
However, once again, I found the lipstick a tad too oily for my preference, but…WHO
CARES when the colour looks this good. There was a colour for everyone within
this lipstick range, and limiting myself to buying just one was extremely
Once I had left the store I couldn’t
help thinking about the blusher range “Sleek- Blush By 3” so I had to go back!
The colours were beautiful and you get 3 shades in one case with an option of
Pumpkin, Flame, Lace & Pink Spirit. Check out the website to see the
options. ( I will post a link at the bottom of the page). I purchased the product
in Pumpkin. The case is very cute, lightweight and has a handy mirror inside.
The colours range from matte and shimmer and have intense pigment. I LOVE the
colours and try to use them sparingly so that the result is not too bright;
however application of the product is slightly difficult. As it is so highly
pigmented the colours are difficult to blend and can result in a patchy colour.
However, I am using a basic cheap blusher brush; I feel that if I invested in a
higher quality tool it would make application a lot easier.
(This palette is only available in
Superdrug for a limited time).
