Haul: MUA & B.


So today I had a little look in Superdrug- and of course couldn't come away empty handed!

First I picked up the new MUA Undress your skin foundation in Porcelain. I also picked up the MUA shimmer highlighter.

I also picked up a couple of items from the new Superdrug range B., Which was created with the help of one of my favourite bloggers, British Beauty Blogger,
First I picked up the B. Flawless Complete cover foundation in 010 Linen. I also picked up the B.Pure Micellar water.

Due to spending over £10 I got a free B. gift set
which includes, the B. Radiant rejuvenating serum, B. Vitalised eye cream, B. B cream, as well as a lipstick in 186 Rose Quartz, and a cream eye shadow. 

I will be reviewing some of these products in the coming weeks- if there is anything that you would specifically like to see reviewed just comment below!

MUA Haul


about 4 weeks ago MUA reached 50,000 fans on Facebook, and therefore did a 50% off everything on their site.

So being the big MUA fan I am I thought I would take advantage of the offer- even though it was rediculasly hard to place your order on the day as the website kept crashing. Also it took over 3 weeks to arrive due to the Paypal issues that they were having.

Any way this is what I got.

As you can see I picked up some of the brushes - which I am loving so far.

If there is anything specific you would like reviewed just let me know!
