42 New Products – Asda, Superdrug & Bargain Buys Beauty Haul

Hi there! In the past couple of months I haven’t done that much stocking up on stuff I don’t need. 😀 But I just couldn’t resist temptation (offers) the other day. I went to Asda – and found a few items I had to have. And I placed three Superdrug orders in 24 hours. And then I swung by my local Bargain Buys store… Now here’s what I bought!
NSPA at Asda
NSPA Vanilla Fragrance Body Mist (200ml), NSPA Moisturising Shea Butter (200ml), NSPA Pineapple Shower & Bath Gel (500ml) and NSPA Pineapple Fragrance Body Mist (200ml). These products were all on special and they were £2 each.
Haul 6
Dolly’s Mixtures Piña Colada Shower Gel (300ml) and Body Mist (100ml) – these were on special for 75p each! 2 Superdrug Cucumber Peel-Off Mask tubes (75ml each, there was a buy one get second half price offer – so that’s £3.98 in total for 150ml of product), Tommyguns ‘Leave me in Conditioner’ & Styling Crème (250ml) – I bought this one because it was 70p!
Haul 5
3 Superdrug Fruit Sorbet Antioxidant Peel-Off Face Masks – 49p each, 3 for 2 offer – so I paid 98p in total for 3 face masks. B. Soft Blendable Kohl Eyeliner 122 Chocolate and 100 Black – these were 90p each. B. Rich Intense Colour Lipstick 54 Eton Mess and 186 Rose Quartz. The lippies were £1.80 each. And then there’s the B. Sweet Popping Candy Highlight Serum – it was £3.
Haul 7
Superdrug Optimum PhytoBrighter Black Moisturiser and Superdrug Optimum Skin Illuminating Glycolic Overnight Peel. These products are usually £12.99 each – but thanks to a half price offer I paid £6.45 each only.
Haul 3
B. nail polishes were 30p – so I just picked a few randomly – Mulberry, Peach Melba, 3 base coats, Piglet, Minx and Sea Foam.
Haul 4
The day before Superdrug reduced the prices on their B. range dramatically (I think it’s going to be discontinued) was the last day of the 3 for 2 deal on all make-up. I didn’t want to buy anything this time, but MUA nail polishes were 50p only – so I bought 9 polishes for £3 in total. I chose these colours: Red Rose, Leapfrog, Whitewash, Fever Red, Orchid and Pitch Black. I also added two clear polishes to make the most of the 3 for 2 offer. 🙂
Haul 9
I also like to go to Bargain Buys. I always find at least one make-up item or nail polish to buy. This time I bagged 2 NYC nail polish trio packs – they were £1 each. Yes, that’s 6 polishes for £2 in total! The shades in the first set are: I Need A Dollar, Flame The Night and Lavender Cupcake. The shades in the second set are: Love Never Dies, Empire Purple and Perpetual Peony. The picture below is what the trio packs look like. So if you’ve got a Bargain Buys or Poundworld near you, you might want to swing by to check what kind of goodies they’ve got. 🙂
Haul 8
So this is it. Finally! 😀 I didn’t have to buy more skin care, I certainly didn’t need any toiletries, and I don’t even want to mention my nail polish stash (some of the polishes I bought are back-ups of what I’ve already got). But with all those great offers I just couldn’t resist! What can I say? I’m a compulsive bargain hunter! By the way, I only spent just under £44 in total for all of those 42 products – not bad at all! 🙂

Thanks for stopping by! I appreciate it! ♥

Poundworld Make-Up: Miss Beauty London Smooth Coverage Lipstick 360 Heather

Hi there! If you saw yesterday’s post, you know that I picked up two items from Poundworld’s new make-up range. Yesterday I reviewed the face powder, and now’s the time to tell you what I think of Miss Beauty London Smooth Coverage Lipstick 360 Heather.
Miss Beauty Lipstick 360 Heather
When I applied the listick I was surprised how creamy and moisturising it was. But despite the smooth texture the colour payoff was incredibly intense. I didn’t expect that at all. However, due to its creaminess I think this lipstick is best applied with a brush to get the right amount of colour onto the lips.

There’s one thing I didn’t like: When I removed the barcode sticker (which sealed the lippie), the sticky goo from underneath the sticker didn’t come off as easily as I had hoped. As I had done my nails only a few hours earlier, my poor husband had to remove the goo with nail polish remover… 😀

Anyway, I think that this lipstick is quite reasonable, especially as it’s £1 only. I didn’t like any of the other shades, but I can see myself wearing this shade.

Poundworld Make-Up: Miss Beauty London Pressed Powder 18 Ivory

Hi there! About two months ago Poundworld launched its own make-up range, Miss Beauty London. The products are made in the UK by the same company that also manufactures 2True products, so I was interested to see how Miss Beauty London would hold up.

When I had a look at what was on sale, I wasn’t too impressed. They had lots of lip and nail products, but only a handful of eyeshadows. The nail colours didn’t look bad at all, but the shades were fairly standard so I didn’t pick up any nail polish. In the end I bought two products – a lipstick (to be reviewed shortly) and this Miss Beauty London Pressed Powder (18 Ivory).
Miss Beauty Powder
This shade, 18 Ivory, is really nice for pale girls. It’s certainly the perfect shade for me because it’s a perfect match for my skin tone. This is also the reason why I didn’t take a photo of the powder on my skin – you wouldn’t see anything.

Another bonus: The powder has sunscreen and vitamin E added to it.  I don’t think that I need the extra sunscreen from the powder because my Olay moisturiser protects me from the sun. I also don’t think that the vitamin E reaches my skin because I use Max Factor’s Pan Stik. 🙂 But it’s nice to know the manufacturer thought of adding sunscreen and vitamin E – just in case.

In terms of quallity, this product is average. I’ve had better and worse face powders. It does what it’s supposed to do – it controls shine and sets make-up, but it needs a touch up every couple of hours. But then again, it’s £1 only so you can’t really go wrong. I’ll definitely keep this powder in my make-up bag!
