HAUL: What's new in the drugstore?

I went in for some nose strips but ended up getting sucked in by all the displays advertising new products. So, started throwing things in my basket, then I clocked a sign saying ‘3 for 2 across all makeup’ and well, I ended up with a receipt longer than my 5’1ft body.

Sometimes you just need to binge and treat yourself and then not feel guilty about it – something I’m exceptionally good at. As I said I went in for nose strips and discovered that Biore has brought out their famous strips in limited edition packaging. They do them in zebra and leopard print but of course, I went for the box that I thought would look best in photos for Instagram because I am that extra.

I also picked up some makeup that I haven’t seen in the drugstore before so to me, it’s new. I used the L’Oreal Paris Paradise Extatic mascara yesterday and it’s nothing special. My lashes didn’t look like the girls on the packaging that’s for sure. It didn’t lift them at all or give them any volume.

However, I also picked up the Superstay Maybelline foundation and I was super impressed. My skin looked so smooth after application so much so that three people asked me if I’d changed anything in my skincare routine.

The other products I picked up that I haven’t had a chance to try yet is the Maybelline tattoo brow, which according to the packaging will give me semi-permanent eyebrows for three days. The L’Oreal True Match concealer (I mean finally L’Oreal), a black liquid lipstick for Rimmel London (Halloween is upon us), Volume Reveal mascara from Bourjous, a concealer palette from Revolution, and L’Oreal’s new Brow Pomarade.

The last thing I chucked in my basket was the Maybelline The Eraser Eye concealer because I have never tried it… I know, I’m behind on the game.

What have you picked up from the drugstore lately? I’m nosey and need to know.
