Welcome Back!!! I know it’s a common fact that all students are poor and to be fair I’m quite wise when it comes to money. However, the government unfortunately doesn’t fund courses taught at the uni I attend so with full time uni and only a part time job, I’m very tight on money and will be for the next three years. But when your favourite makeup items are rolling low, you just have to restock, there’s no questions about it.
I was in desperate need of new concealer, new foundation, new shampoo and conditioner…basically every single one of my favourites, so I jumped straight into the Superdrug website and ordered everything I needed. I did have a little browse while I was there and was so tempted to add some liquid lipsticks into my basket from Barry M and Makeup Revolution but I just couldn’t
justify afford it…*cry face*.
I love Superdrug for makeup and I feel they do such an amazing range of makeup brands and because I’m a Superdrug member I get free delivery without having a minimum spend…win win!
Maybelline is one of my favourite drugstore brands, they do my favourite concealer, the Fit Me concealer, as well as my ALL TIME favourite mascara, the Lash Sensational LUSCIOUS, not the original one, although that one is good as well, I just personally prefer the effect on my eyelashes after using the Luscious with Oil Blend formula.
My all time favourite foundation, L’Oreal’s Infallible Matte foundation was out of stock…boo hoo!!! And I couldn’t wait for it be be restocked as I really needed a foundation and since Maybelline had a 3 for 2 offer running, I thought I’d try the Maybelline Fit Me foundation.
I’m hoping I really like this as I’ve heard some really good things about and since it’s in the same line as my favourite concealer, I’m hoping there won’t be too many differences to make me dislike it and love it just as much as the concealer.
I’ll let you know I get on, I’m even thinking about doing a first impression for this foundation.
I’ve been having real issue with my skin lately which I’m really irritated about as my skin has never been this bad before. Therefore, I repurchased a trusty product, the Simple Clear Skin Oil Balancing Exfoliating Wash. This product is a really gentle daily exfoliating wash, it really reduces my oil and makes my makeup last longer without primer as well as making my skin feel clean and fresh.
The last couple of products won’t be any surprise to you. I just had to repurchase my favourite hair duo, the Garnier Ulimate Blends shampoo and conditioner.
For the time being this hair duo is perfect for me. It smells incredible, it’s really affordable and it actually benefits my hair. I have a full length review about this amazing duo on my blog if you want to hear more. They also feature in about 4 of my empties posts, I just can’t get enough of the stuff.
I also decided to pick up another Batiste Dry Shampoo as although it’s not a necessity, it’s always nice to have a product like this for a day that you may need some extra volume or you skipped a “wash hair day” by accident. I just like having one around the house incase I’m in need.
I personally prefer the “divine dark” edition as with my super dark hair, I always find that the white powder is really hard to massage in completely and it’s just safer with brown powder incase I have missed a spot, it won’t look like I have severe dandruff.
So although you’ve probably seen all these products countless times on my blog before because all I did was repurchase my favourites, I hope you enjoyed the post nevertheless. But for a while now, I won’t be able to try many new products alongside my favourites as I just don’t have the money….MAJOR downside to uni/student life…ahah!
