.drugstore spree.

i love superdrug, i get very excited when i go in there and needless to say always buy lots of things i don't need.  but its such retail therapy for me because its almost guilt free even when i'm already feeling over spent (which is most of the time)

today i bought these goodies from superdrug
-barry m nail paint in 313 dusky mauve £2.95
-MUA glitter eyeliner in shade 2 £1
-me me me blush me in coral £7.99

the blush basically looks like a cross between benefits coralista and georgia with almost identical packaging.  it has a mirror in the lid and the colour payoff is really good.  the brush is synthetic but really soft.

i wanted the eyeliner ever since i saw the pixiwoo video on glitter eyeliners and realised the drug store ones were amazing for the price, ill probably never wear it so i thought id just buy one to have a play with and then throw it in my kit, i really like it, the applicator is nice and firm and you get a solid stripe of glitter.  only downside is it takes a while to dry but once it is it stays on very well.

i loved the nail polish colour as soon as i saw it and also recognised it from a recent blog post i've seen (cant remember who's!)

i havent tried it on my nails yet (thats no.7 totally teal on my nails!) 

me trying and failing to capture the true colour, its basically what it says a dusky/dirty mauve with a really subtle shimmer of a pinky/purple running through it.

another recent find!! its beautiful, i no longer own it as i gave it to my friends little girl because it reminded her of dorothy's shoes.  plus after removing the bugger i probs wouldn't have worn it again anyway but its still a gorgeous colour none the less!

lastly from boots, my new favourite; no.7's totally love love
