Drugstore Haul of Fame

I just thought I will so a quick post to show you guys some of the things that I bought in past couple of weeks... I had been lusting after most of these things for such a long time...Finally I decided to give in.


There were some very good offers last week. First one being the Boots 3 for 2 across all make -up and other one being  buy any 3 for £10 across quite a few hair-care products.

Barry M Jelly Hi-Shine Nail Paints in Lychee, BlueBerry and Pomegranate. These babies have been proving very popular in the bloggerville and I finally surrendered to the call of these small shiny bottles..I have treid Lychee and Blueberry on so-far and I loved them both. My only gripe is that since these are thicker nail polishes, the thin brush makes it difficult to apply.. Let me know if you want a detailed review with swatches.. These are available at boots or Superdrug and are priced at 3.99. I got it when they were on buy 2 get £1 off. I also picked up Barry M Foil effect Gold as I love the silver one that I have for Konad stamping.

Revlon Nearly Naked Make-up : Again another very popular product. I had to get this as I prefer the light to medium coverage foundations and this sounded just right for me. I got it in shade True Beige. I tried it as soon as I got it home and I love the finish. It is really very light and will be perfect for summer.

Real Techniques Brushes : I didn't have a stippling brush and was happy using a foundation brush for foundations.I had 2 brush sets from Real Techniques and was very happy with them, and because of the 3 for 2 offer, I decided to add these to my collection. I am so glad I did. The stippling brush is just amazingly soft. These were roughly  £12 each...

OPI Euro Centrale Minis set : I had 2 favourites from this collection that I wanted to buy. You are such a Budapest and Polka.com. however when I saw the minis set, I thought I would buy this and then buy Polka.com separately. Will post reviews with swatches later..

John Freida 3-day straight spray and Dream Curls styling spray : I don't have curly hair so I probably shouldn't have got the 3 day straight spray. But it works like a charm and my hair was definitely straight even on the 3rd day. I am yet to try the Dream Curls styling spray. These both are i region of  £6-7 . However, because of the offer in Asda, I got it for approx 3.33 which was not a bad deal at all... (The third thing I bought was an Aussie shampoo)

Tangle Teezer. I have been trying to grow my hair long for some time now. Since I have got fine hair, I find it difficult to detangle without a lot of it ending up in the comb. There were so many good reviews of this , that it had to end up in my shopping basket...

Other Bits: Maybelline 24-hour colour tattoo eye-shadow in Pink Gold, Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in True Beige and Rimmel Scandal Eyes Eyeliner in Purple. 

I will do individual posts and reviews of some of these things...so if you would like to know how I get on with something in particular, please drop me a note or mention in the comment.
