Haul: Superdrug and Boots

Hasn't it been awful weather in the UK today? I really hope it doesn't snow tomorrow like it is predicted to!
I have a small haul for you today from both Boots and Superdrug.

Starting with Superdrug, I only picked up four things, but as two of them are body sprays I wont show you those as I am sure you're not really interested, haha. I really wanted to try a baked eyeshadow as I have never tried them before, and heard so many good reviews about them. I brought the Accessorize (If you know me you will know I am obsessed with all things Accessorize) Baked Duo Eye Shadow in 13- Thaila, which cost £4.50. Its beautiful brown and creams and I have only swatchded them but they still look gorgeous and I cant wait to try them out. Also, in Superdrug at the minute, if you buy ANY (yes, any) Accessorize make - up product, at any price, you get a free Diamond Sparkle Lip Gloss. They retail at around £3/4 so I think that is a really good saving. I think its a new range they have brought out, I am not too sure. I picked Lip Gloss Shade 1 - MAGICAL. Its a very pink, girly shade but it looks really nice, and usually i don't tend to go for lip glosses as I find most of them quite sticky; this one isn't.

I then went to Boots to use my no 7 £5 off voucher as it runs out in a few days time. I picked out a blusher which is 22 - Candy Pink Natural Blush Cheek Colour. It retails at £9.50 (I think) but I got it for £4.50 with the voucher.

I then picked up this Soap and Glory Foundation and Primer, it is £11 which is quite reasonably priced for a S&G product and for a foundation as well. The shade I pruchased was The Fairest Of Them All, which suits my very pale skin. I've heard so many good reviews about this but I was unsure whether it would live up to it, and let me just say... it is so good! For £11 it is a bargain for how good it is, it looks like a high market product as it leaves your skin looking flawless. It is an actual God Send and I am so pleased with it.

I then just picked up the S&G Hand Maid Cleansing Gel which is £2.50, as I had ran out. Its one of the nicest hand sanitzers as it doesn't have that normal smell which they all seem to have if you understand what I mean, it smells of S&G. :-)

I picked up this Liquid Concealer by Miss Sporty as it was free with another Miss Sporty product. I am yet to try it yet, but I'll be sure to review it once I have. I tihnk it retails at about £3, not too sure.

I also brought this S&G Smoulder Kohl Water Proof Eye Liner for £5, and as all of the S&G products I have come across, it is amazing and so easy to use.

 I brought this Mascara by Miss Sporty which is called Fabolous Lash Xtra Black (001) The brush itself is quite small in my opinion but applies lovely and i'm quite impressed with it as it is only a cheap mascara which was around £3-4. Now, at the moment in Boots if you spend over £3 on any Miss Sporty Make Up Items you get the Liquid Concealer (above) free, which is a really good deal as I only spend around £3/4 and got two products, and as Miss Sporty are really cheap anyone its brilliant.

Thanks for reading!
Please let me know if you have any suggestions or requested

Review: 17 Eye Dazzle Dusts

Hi guys!
 so a quick review for you today. I had purchased a set of 4 eye dazzle 'dusts' by 17 (Boots) a few weeks ago; I've never used them before but decided to give them a whirl.
I got a set of 4 dusts which were: pink, blue, a cream/white and gold. They come in small 'pots' if you will, and they have a sprinkler type opening (I mean small holes, similar to what you have on a pepper pot, sorry I am unsure of the correct phrase for this!) .
The dust itself lives upto its name as it shouts 'dazzle'. Its very glittery and shimmery and quite pigmented for a cheaper brand. I've used them all, mainly the white.cream and pink because they are beautiful.

Above are the pictures of the eye dazzles; the top is a swatch I did which you may not be able to see because of the flash lighting of my camera, but they are very sparkly and glittery and overall just beautiful really. If you like glittery and shimmery eye make - up looks I would definately recommend these because they're gorgeous.
As always, thank you for reading
I'd love to read your comments of thought, it would make my day!
All my love xx
