A Priming soufflé is something that’s completely new to me, I’d never heard of it and only found out about it when Superdrug kindly sent it me to review for their Blog Squad.
B. Is their own brand beauty and skincare line which is cruelty free and suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
I was expecting the product to have a scent but it doesn’t. It feels exactly like the Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse foundation which is lovely and a little goes a long way.
With this primer you can use it alone for a matte finish or use it after moisturising, I personally prefer using it alone as I feel it makes my foundation look better and last longer .
It costs £9.99 for 20g which I feel is a little pricy for a Drugstore product. Whilst it’s a good product I don’t think I’d purchase this product due to the price.
Hey everyone, today’s post is all about my top 5 favourite eyebrow products. I’m no expert and can’t create the perfect brow but the products featured are super easy to use and great at filling in any gaps.
Maybelline Brow Satin: With a thin pencil at one end and a filling powder at the other it’s super easy to fill in your brows. I love this as it’s quick to use and small hair like strokes can be achieved. There’s currently not many shades to choose from which is the only downside. My shade is Medium Brown and it retails for £6.99
Maybelline Brow Drama: I use the clear shade (Transparent) and it’s perfect for setting brows into place, although the brush is quite large and ball shaped. It lasts for ages and only costs £5.99.
Freedom Eyebrow Pomade: this is my first experience with a pomade and I have the shade chocolate. I find it’s easier to apply when it’s warmed up first on the skin. The shade is great and it’s affordable at £5, you can also get pomades from the sister company Makeup Revolution.
Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil: I have a mini sample which came free with a magazine so it’s not an exact shade match but it is so easy to use! It’s shaped similar to a tear drop so you can use the point to shape and then fill in with the rest of the pencil. Full size: £20
Benefit Gimme Brow: As before it’s a magazine sample. It’s a brow gel with a small brush which applies so easily and doesn’t create a mess. It’s brush is a lot smaller than the Maybelline brow gel so it’s slightly more precise. Full size: £20
Out of all these products my go to is the Maybelline Brow Stain pencil as I personally find it the easiest to apply and it’s the best shade.
What’s your favourite brow product?
A good lip scrub is essential if you suffer with dry lips or if you want to prime your lips for a smoother applications of your lip products.
Today’s review is all about the B. Pro Gentle Lip Scrub. If you aren’t aware then B. is the cruelty free, vegan and vegetable friendly makeup and skincare brand by Superdrug.
This particular scrub has no flavour which is a shame as I love the E.L.F mint maniac scrub. On the first use I found it didn’t actually do anything, this is one of those products where you have to work away the top layer first.
I love that it’s in lipstick form again which makes it quick to use on the go, however, the product itself is pretty basic including its packaging. It’s not a bad product it’s just not a brilliant product either.
Currently it’s on offer for £3.33 instead of £4.99. I personally wont be picking up this scrub again as there’s other brands selling scrubs for a similar price including Barry M who have now launched new flavours.
I received a Makeup Revolution Ultra Strobe Cream in the Pro Amplified Strobe and Highlighting gift set I had for Christmas so I thought I’d share my thoughts on it.
Firstly it’s a smaller 30ml size the ones you can buy are 50ml and cost £8. I mentioned on my Makeup Revolution Brush Cleaner post a slight packaging issue with the sticker peeling off well guess what? Same issue here it hasn’t been stuck on correctly and on the back of the tube the label isn’t in the centre. I feel this makes the products look cheap.
With the strobe cream you can either wear it on its own as a highlighter or you can mix it with your foundation for a dewy look. I personally prefer the product under foundation and found it also works well with B.B. Creams.
In terms of being on top of products as a highlight I found it took away the B.B cream when trying to blend. The product itself comes out white and blends out to leave a gold shimmer on the skin.
I like this product but personally I probably wouldn’t re-purchase the full size as I much prefer powder highlighters.
Available at Superdrug and the Tam Beauty Website.
Hey guys it’s time for another face mask review, if you’re new to this blog then there’s plenty of face mask reviews to check out!
If you couldn’t tell already I absolutely love Superdrug own brand products with today’s post focusing on their brand new Coconut Mask which is part of the new We Love FaceMasks collection.
It has an interesting range to choose from with there being charcoal, blueberry jam, avocado and oats, coffee and finally kale; all with different benefits.
I went for coconut purely for the scent as who doesn’t love coconuts? It’s a creamy mask and comes in a re-sealable pot (75ml).
I love the simple packaging of this product as it looks very ethical and ties into it being vegan, vegetarian friendly and cruelty free.
The product left my skin feeling smooth after use, it smells great and was easy to apply with fingers but it was much easier to remove it with a cloth.
Currently retails for £3.29 but will be £4.99 in the future.
Makeup Revolution Solid Brush Cleaner hit or miss? Carry on reading to find out my full first impression!
First of all it costs £5 for a 100ml tub so it should last for a while and the packaging is pretty basic. One thing I didn’t like is that the instructions is stuck on with a sticky label which is already peeling off.
It’s pretty simple to use and handy to travel with as it isn’t very bulky. It is basically a pot of soap through that expires 12 months after opening.
From first impressions I was surprised at how well it removed harsh pink eyeshadow tones from the brushes with just one use.
An observation I found is that it cleaned my EcoTools foundation brushes much better than my Real Techniques ones but it still didn’t remove all of the product.
It cleans eyeshadow brushes very quickly and removes all traces of products but face brushes take much longer and it’s not guaranteed you’ll get a fully clean brush.
Overall I think the product works fine but it didn’t really impress me, had it throughly cleaned my face brushes then I’d be recommending it but it isn’t anything special and if you have a bar of soap already at home then it will do the same job.
It’s no surprise that Makeup Revolution has became massively popular over the past year with more and more products coming out on a frequent basis.
Whilst today’s review isn’t a brand new launch it’s still fairly recent and is part of the Skin Kiss Highlighter collection. (New Shades have just launched)
The shade Ice Kiss is a stunning icy gold colour with a lot of pigment! It can be built up for a maximum glow or a little of this really does go a long way. The pan it comes in is absolutely huge so it will last a long time but who can resist buying more highlighters regardless of whether they’ve ran out?
The Skin Kiss range consists of gorgeous shades and each one costs just £5!
B. Official Makeup has recently been rebranded after a while of being away from the shelves. If you’ve never heard of B. it’s the cruelty free makeup brand by Superdrug and is vegan and vegetarian friendly.
I was kindly sent a luminous silk lipstick of theirs to test as part of the Superdrug Blog Squad. The shade I received is Suis Moi.
I was really pleased to get a nude pink shade as I don’t really wear many other colours. I think the packaging is quite sleek and simple as well.
The formula is described as luminous silk, it glides on the lips nicely and doesn’t feel sticky etc… The shade is quite sheer to begin with but is buildable with layers.
One issue I did have with this lipstick is I don’t feel it matches the shade sticker as I was expecting a more purple mauve shade. I much prefer the shade it actually is but that’s not the point so just be careful when ordering online if you haven’t seen swatches first.
I love the colour but it is transfer proof and it doesn’t really last long if you’re eating or drinking but it hasn’t put me off trying more from the range.
The lipsticks retail at £6.99 and come in a wide range of shades!
Argan oil is massively popular in hair and beauty products so Superdrug have launched a brand new range of hair masques. You can choose the overnight treatment which contains blends of Argan and Kukui Nut Oils or the replenishing treatment which contains Argan, Pro Vitamin B5 and Papaya Extract and they work for all hair types.
Overnight Masque: I actually used this during the day and left it on for around an hour, it’s quite a runny consistency and can be used from root to tip. I have quite long thick hair so needed quite a bit but it is a 125ml tube so it will last. I personally found it slightly itchy on my roots which is why I washed it out early but it did actually leave my hair feeling great! The product itself smells great and left my hair feeling soft, looked shiny and frizz free for days.
I do not have sensitive skin so it may be best to avoid your roots if you do!
Replenishing Sachet: I don’t usually use sachet hair masques as I prefer my products in a pot but with 17ml in the pack there’s actually quite a lot in it. The whole sachet was used on my hair but for short hair you could probably get away with a few uses.
Again it smells great, really fruity from the papaya extract and leaves your hair feeling incredible!
It’s suitable for all hair types but for dry hair it would be beneficial!
Hands up who loves fragrance! I certainly do so I was pleased to receive the Layering Lab Body Mists as part of the Superdrug Blog Squad. I received mine in the scents Oriental and Cocoon.
The idea of the mists is that you can choose two from the collection (six available scents) and layer them together to create a unique scent or you can wear them individually which I think is a great concept.
Oriental is my favourite of the two and contains the notes spice, berries and floral it also smells like Diesel Loverdose Tattoo! Cocoon has jasmine, vanilla and musk and I was less keen on this scent but purely because I’m not a vanilla fan.
I’ve never really been a body mist fan either but I can honestly say I’ve been converted and I can’t wait to try out the rest of the range! At 100ml they are perfectly handbag sized and I think the simplistic packaging is so cute.
As always with Superdrug own brands it’s cruelty free and suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
