Toilet roll is so March 2020 darling!
In April 2020, we let go of the booty paper aisle, and we start shopping for ways to disguise snack-triggered skin craters, werewolf eye-bags and 50 shades of grey facial skin tones. Thank you covid-19.
*The above may or may not describe the author’s experience.*
I popped into my local Superdrug to get shower stuff, and I ended up nabbing a few bits and bobs, as you do.
This may end up being a disaster on me – I have olive skin and am not sure olive on olive is a good idea unless you are The Hulk. But I thought I’d experiment anyway. The colors are cute, and the palette was £5. I have most other colours at home but no greens whatsoever and this really grabbed my eyes (feel that pun!)
I love a good blush, and my current one is battered. I don’t like overtly bright pink blushes, my preference is a mix of pink and peach, which this one kind of is. I am tempted to also get the more peachy one (sweet cheeks) but they did not have it in store. This was £4.49 and there was a 3 for 2 on Rimmel products (hence the next 2 products being Rimmel).
I am not usually a massive fan of liquid foundations, I find them icky and I don’t like the shiny salmon finish they give. Yes. Shiny Salmon Finish is a thing.
However, this Rimmel foundation is meant to have a powder matte finish (£5.99). I tried this one on my hand and consistency seemed ok. So long as I don’t end up looking like an over powdered 17th century courtesan, I will be ok … We will know soon, won’t we?
This is the product I was technically needing the most out of my haul. I legitimately have some pretty evil dark circles right now, they are so big they could form a band. Naughty dark circles doom any make up look instantly, and am juuuuust about learning how to do my make up. I HAVE HOPE IN YOU RIMMEL CONCEALER!!(£5.24)
I will admit that this a completely decadent purchase (at £3.99). Driven by nothing but pink packaging and bold natural claims on the front. I am not going to lie, this is a pure guilty pleasure splurge. Also I have dry skin and time to waste so I don’t mind caking myself in moisturising oil. Like the kids say #YOLO.
Simple is one of my favourite skincare brands : ethical, no nasties in it and very decently priced (this was £1.69, on promo). As I am exploring make up a bit more now, I am conscious that scrubbage is required to clear up the pores. I love Simple’s formulas, so I didn’t hesitate to grab this tube. My prreeeeciousss.
All in all, I am pretty happy with my purchases and cannot wait to start using them. If something sucks or rocks, you bet your bottom dollar, pound and euro that I will be shouting it out here, so stay tuned!
