Beauty Haul (including reviews)

I've noticed recently that Boots and Superdrug have been having really good deals lately and I went a bit wild (for me). This haul is from three different purchases and I have no regrets (even though I'm a skint student!) 


Revlon Photoready Makeup in 003 Shell - Boots - £12.99 - Buy here!
Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer in Fair 1- Superdrug - £4.19 - Buy here!
Maybelline The Rocket Mascara in Very Black - Superdrug - £7.99 - Buy here!
Collection Bronze Glow in Sunkissed - Superdrug - £4.19 - Buy here!
Natural Collection Pressed Powder in Neutral - Boots - £1.99 - Buy here!
Avon Supershock Gel Eyeliner Pencil in Black - Avon - £6 - Buy here!
Seventeen Phwoarr Paint - Boots - £5.49 - Buy here!

I was looking for a heavy duty concealer and was thinking of getting the Estee Lauder Double Wear Concealer (Buy here!) out of my Boots advantage cards points of course.. But then I saw this and thought maybe it would be alright? It is really thick and creamy and does blend in really well! However, under the eyes it does crease so I highly recommend a setting powder! I have redness in my skin and tried using this as it is heavy duty, however it dried out my skin on my nose/cheeks. I would recommend for an affordable under eye concealer though!

Even comes with a handy mirror for on the go application! (Excuse fingerprints in product haha.)

I've been using the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder for a while now and it's good but I am now on a tight budget! I know that this powder is equally as good as I have used it before and it's under £2.. Can't go wrong really!

My Benefit They're Real Mascara is drying up and isn't worth a £19.50 repurchase so I went for this! So far I like it!! It applied easily but the formula is quite wet and I wouldn't apply too many coats as it can look clumpy! Not bad though!

Okay so this is my favourite eyeliner ever in the history of eyeliners. Easy to apply. Smooth. Glides on. Highly pigmented. Stays on all night. 5* rating. I love. I didn't pay the £6 for it though!! Had it for £3! If you regularly have an Avon book sent to you always check for this to be on offer, it is well worth it!

This bronzer was bought on a whim. Didn't plan on getting it, just needed something for my 3 for 2 deal! I thought I'd go for a shimmery bronzer as they are better for people with dry skin! This can also be used on the face and body! Perfect! (It's also massive!!)

Obvious purchase here. Repurchased so many times. It is so good and affordable. I got it in a shade lighter this time as it's Winter now and my so called "tan" had disappeared. If you haven't tried this, GO BUY IT!

I've been using Revlon ColourStay Foundation but I have decided it's too thick for me and I much prefer the PhotoReady! I had a £3 off Revlon makeup voucher for Boots so I only paid £9.99 for this. BARGAIN. People with dry skin should definitely give this a go!
