Beauty Haul

Just picked up a few bits on they way back from work, whoops! 

I've been on a skincare hype at the moment and I've nearly out of my Body Shop skin care Vitimin E gift set so i went on the hunt for some drug store skin care for now!

Boots recently re-branded their Botanics range so i decided to give it a shot! The products are designed to suit a range of skin types and they consist of; the Youth skincare range for young skin, the All Bright range for brighter looking skin, the Ultra Calm range to sooth sensitive skin, the Shine Away range that targets blemishes and reduces shine and the Organic range for people who like to use only organic products!

 At first i wanted to get the Rose Water Toning Spritz but everywhere seems to be sold out, but i did get the All Bright Cleansing Toner and Cleansing Cream with brightening hibiscus.

All Bright Cleansing Toner: "Cleanses impurities and freshens. This revitalising toner helps visibly tighten pores and instantly brighten skin. Skin is left feeling fresher and prepared for moisurising"
All Bright Gentle Cleansing Cream: "Removes make up and impurities.This creamy cleanser sweeps away make up, oil and impurities without drying, leaving skin soft and brighter looking"

Its a bit boring but I also picked up an essential Dove gofresh Deodorant in Pomegranate & Lemon Verbena Scent. Theres not much to say deodorant is just deodorant, but I always choose Dove.

I finally picked up the Garnier 2 in 1 Tinted Eye Roll-on in Fair. I've wanted this for so long but I couldn't justify paying £10 for it but Superdrug have it on a half price deal at the moment so I picked it up.  

It is a Caffeine Anti Dark Circles 2 in 1 Eye Roll-on, it instantly conceals and hydrates. 

"Is It Right For Me? Yes, if you regularly experience dark circles under your eyes and find that your usual skin care routine is not enough. you are looking for an immediate solution to hide them"
"How Is It Different? It is out 1st roll-on massage which combines a caring formula with natural ingredients and long-lasting tinted concealer as effective as make-up. The formula, aslong with the massaging balm offers a complete solution to tired eyes and dark circles and bags."

It is enriched with caffeine, known for its stimulating action and lemon extract known for its clarifying properties with this and the roll-on massage is supposed to reduce the appearance of fatigue. 

Another essential some 100% Pure Cotton Wool from Superdrug.

MUA Undressed Eye shadow Palette

MUA Undressed Palette

MUA brought out their answer to the Urban Decay Naked Palette not long ago, I love MUA's eyeshadows and when this came out I jumped at the chance. I haven't taken the plunge to the purchase the Naked Palette just yet but after this do I really need it?  

The two palettes are very similar in color and even name... naked...undressed? 
But a big difference is the price, the MUA Palette retails for £3 vs the Naked Palette is £32! 

The palette contains 12 neutral colours 3 matte and the rest shimmers. The matte colours were a bit disappointing as they are not that pigmented and hard to blend but the shimmer colours were a whole other story! They are the better formulated colours and are massively pigmented and blend across the lid perfectly with a light fluffy blending brush. 
They do have some fall out but nothing off putting! The colours last at least 4/5 hours without a primer, with a primer they can last for up to 8 hours.
So for £4 I think this palette is a must have! 

Do you own the Undressed palette or the Naked palette?
