Having nothing to do now my degree is over means that I can go shopping without feeling guilty that I should be working. Yay! I needed to return a faulty necklace to Primark so I popped into the city centre to take it back and thought I'd have a quick look at the MUA range in Superdrug and to see the Models Own stand in Boots. Although no such stand existed, despite the Models Own website saying it did. Ah well. Maybe next time. Anywho, here's what I ended up getting!
Having found no Models Own stand in sight, I headed over to the No 7 counter to find something to get with my No 7 voucher. I didn't want to spend a fortune, so I got a nail polish. Is it just me, or is the No 7 polish range a bit boring? Anywho, I picked up this beauty:
And some conditioner to tame my frizzy locks
Yet again, Boots had sold out of James Brown's new hair care range. Rubbish! I want the conditioner!
Luckily Customer Services is located on the same floor as the shoes, which I always forget to check out. I had a nosey and found out something new! Primark now do wide fitting shoes in UK sizes 3-9! Brilliant! I never used to buy shoes in Primark because I always found them too narrow. But today I spotted a gorgeous pair that were a steal at £12:
As I was stuck in doing revision when the MUA range launched, yesterday was my first chance to have a look at it. I was a bit disappointed; there were less products than I thought there would be. Regardless, I had a good look at what was there, and this is what I got:
I've been looking for a highlight colour and this looks like it'll fit the bill perfectly:
Shade 2 - Pearl
I also picked up what I thought was a bronzer, got it home and realised it was a pressed powder. And it was shimmery and not matte. Rubbish! At least it was only a quid!
I think I've just joined the hundreds of other bloggers that picked up this polish haha
If you're following me on Twitter, you'll know that I swatched a tester lippie, picked up the corresponding packaged product, got it home and found it was a different shade. Superdrug, you need to keep the shade numbers on your testers!!
Shade 7 - love the packaging :)
I'd call this pink. Wouldn't you?
Swatch with flash
Swatch with no flash
Yeah, definitely NOT pink...
And a FOTD with me wearing said lippie:
It's definitely more salmon/coral but I have to say I do rather like it and it's staying power is pretty darn good. It's been on for 4 and a half hours and has survived tea drinking, a biscuit, and water drinking. If this was MAC's Angel, it would be off after the first cuppa. I like. I think I may go back and purchase every other colour haha :D
And my last item:
I assure you at age 21 I do not have dentures lol! Or maybe I'm like 70 and just didn't age ;P
The real reason for this purchase, was for my nails. No, really. I saw this post from Snowdrop85 and just had to try it out!
Also, for the GOSH fans out there, I noticed whilst I was in Superdrug that the new GOSH Spring/Summer items are out. But those illusive eye primers are still AWOL from the stands. Hmm.
Phew. That's it. I rewarded myself with a hot chocolate and a strawberry cupcake in Costa Coffee :) Have you been shopping this weekend?
