Let me tell you what I think about these. . .

Superdrug Makeup Haul

Lasting Colour Gel Eyeliners.
Firstly let's talk about these little beauties, I am really excited about these as I actually think I've found my new favourite gel liners!



They are the lasting colour gel eyeliners by Collection  (used to be collection 2000)

These little pots of eyeliner are said to give up to 12 hours lasting wear, and I don’t doubt that for a second, they are very, pigmented and give a very intense colour when applied.
As there so soft they are very easy to work with, so can be smudged to give an amazing smokey eye look and as there so smooth you can get such a good line for doing flicks or to thicken your lash line.

They do come with a little applicator brush but I found the brush to be very square at the end and much preferred to use my Louise young fine liner brush just for a cleaner finish.

When using this product I found because it was a "lasting colour" gel eyeliner if any mistakes were made they were quite difficult to be removed so make sure either an oil based makeup remover is on hand or a concealer to go over any smudges. Also you will have to wash your brush after every use because when coming back to use mine I found it to be rock solid as the gel had already set.

I have only brought the black and brown ones as these were the only ones that were available to me at the time, but I know they do a very beautiful gold and blue colour pigment pot as well so I can’t wait to add them to my collection and at just £4.99 each it would be rude not too!
 


Colour swatches of the brown and black Lasting Gel Eyeliner, also I just wanted to show you how waterproof these really are, this is the swatches after I wiped them several times with wipes and scrubbed my arm with water.


 

MUA BB Foundation.

I was pleasantly surprised by this next product which is MUA BB Foundation.

At £4.00 I thought I might as well try it out it’s not a big money loss if I don’t like it. 

I found this foundation to be quite light I brought light/rose which is a good colour match for my skin but I may have gotten away with one shade darker as it is a pale foundation, which if your pale skinned like me it is fantastic, but just bare that in mind if you go and purchase one! 

  It is quite a full coverage foundation so you don’t need to use a lot as it does go along way. 

I have quite dry skin and found this product to be brilliant, normally I find with high street brands that they go quite flaky on either my nose or cheeks but this product was brilliant it gave me a lovely coverage and didn’t flake all day which obviously I really liked.


My only down points to this foundation was I had to work quite quickly when applying, as it set almost immediately, but that may just be because I have dry skin. 
Also I found that although it looks like there’s going to be quite a lot of foundation in there; I had to squeeze the bottle quite hard after the third use to get any out, but at £4.00 a bottle I can’t really complain. 
With these being the only cons to this product (and believe me I was being very picky as I struggled to find any) I really do encourage you to go and buy one and try it out for yourselves.

 
Shimmer Shades Blusher.
To be honest I haven’t much to write about this product, it is the Shimmer Shades Blusher palette by Collection.
 I'm not overly impressed, the colours are shockingly bright, I got one use out of the light colours before they mixed in with the darker ones, you do only need a tiny bit on your blusher brush and a lot of blending is needed after applying too tone the colours down a bit, I actually apply the blushers, then go back over with my foundation brush which still has some product left on it, if not I do end up looking like I have doll cheeks which personally for me isn’t a good look.
For me this palette gets a thumbs down its far too bright for my skin tone and the light colours just get ruined and turn bright pink anyway so at £3.99 I won’t be purchasing this product again.

(Sorry Collection but this isn't one of your best products)

Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation.

Next up is Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation, for those of you who don’t know this foundation is a dupe for Chanel Pro Lumiere foundation which if I’m right in saying has now been discontinued. So for £9.99 Bourjois is fantastic it has the same texture and even smells the same, only difference in two is I find that Bourjois has a more matter finish.
It has to be one of my favourite high street foundations, I have tried others but somehow always end up going back to this I just love it!



 Bourjois Healthy Mix Concealer.
I thought I'd try out the matching concealer as I’ve got on with the foundation just splendidly; I purchased the concealer in shade 51 which is light.

 I actually found that with having dry skin this product just wanted to stick to all my dry areas and then go patchy, applying my foundation over the top made it appear more even, but for days when I just want to cover up my blemishes I’m sorry to say that this won’t be my go to product!



Rimmel Exaggerate Eye Liner.

I tend to wear liquid liner every day its sort of my go to look, so finding a perfect one has been somewhat of a challenge, but I think I've had a break through with this Rimmel Exaggerate Eye Liner I’m always a little dubious when it comes to waterproof eyeliner because I've noticed it tends to flake off or fade, so I decided to do the ultimate waterproof test and watched the Notebook while wearing it (some one hand the tissues please) well its safe to say I blubed like a baby but was surprised too see my eyeliner was still in tack. It has a beautiful glossy finish and perfects any makeup look! 

I don't like the applicator that comes with it its one of them weird sponge one, I prefer to use a fine liner brush it just makes it a whole lot easier.

 Waterproof Longer Lash Mascara.
 This £2.99 Waterproof Longer Lash Mascara by Collection - it deffiantly is waterproof I'll give them that, thats probably the only pro about this product, although there felt like there was  alot of moisture when removing the brush, it was still quite drying when applied to my lashes, it made my lashes look quite short and clumpy. I also found it quite uncomfortable to wear and by the end of the day I've picked most of it off.
 Unfortuenlty I'll be purchasing a different mascara as soon as I get the chance.



Colour swatches for Bourjois Contour Clubbing Eyeliner & Rimmel Liquid Liner. 


Contour Clubbing Waterproof Eyeliner.
Last but no means least is Contour Clubbing Waterproof Eyeliner this is a lovely eyeliner, which I actually think I prefer to Mac's Feline eyeliner which is quite hard for me to say because I'm a Mac girl through and through! It does have a little sparkle to it as you can see in the swatch picture, but this doesn't show up when you just put it in the water line.
The pencil is so soft which makes it really easy to work with, it's also very long wearing. If you are looking for a black eyeliner that doesn't budge, pop this on your shopping list!
