I put my hands up and admit that I 100% did not need to make this Feel Unique order, but it's happened now and I thought why not treat myself. It also gives me something to talk about on the blog and if that's not a reason to buy yourself something, then I don't know what is!
(Everything is on sale as well, so how could I not have a mini splurge!?)
Tanya Burr Nail Polish, Peaches & Cream -
I saw this shade online and thought it was super cute, perfect for Spring/Summer and I love the shade name. Anything peach I am all over - it's one of my fave colours. I have a few Tanya Burr nail polishes in my collection now and I'm pretty pleased with the quality of them to be honest. I also love the packaging they're housed in, it's very simple yet stylish.
Tanya Burr Nail Polish, Penguin Chick -
How can you not pick up a nail polish called 'Penguin Chick' that's only 95p?! What an absolute bargain and the name of this shade is super cute. I love wearing grey nail polishes and I don't think I have enough of them in my collection yet, so I'm gonna keep buying them!
Maybelline New York Fit Me Concealer, Fair -
I don't really 'do' concealer, only because it creases under my eyes really badly and makes me look about 10 years older than I actually am.. But I thought I'd give this one a try and see if it was any different. To be honest, it doesn't crease as badly as other concealers I've tried but it still does crease a bit. I tried applying eye cream under my eyes the other day before using this and it actually made quite a big difference - I was surprised! So I may continue to do this and then this concealer will probably end up becoming a fave of mine, even though it would have been the eye cream that fixed my problem..
Maybelline New York Lash Sensational Mascara, Very Intense Black -
I definitely did not need another mascara but hey, what's a girl to do when a mascara is being raved about s o o much? I really like the wand of this mascara and it applies a nice even coat of mascara to my lashes, ensuring that they don't clump. It also seems to stay that lovely sort of dry that isn't flaky and I actually accidentally fell asleep wearing this mascara last night (bad, I know!), and when I woke up it was still in tact and hadn't smudged all over my face giving me the dreaded panda eyes - result!
Maybelline New York Colour Sensational Vivid Matte Liquid Lipstick, Nude Thrill -
I also didn't need another liquid lipstick, because I don't even wear the ones I have at the moment.. But I keep telling myself that there will come a day when I want to wear liquid lipstick a lot, so I just keep stocking up. I'm also a sucker for nude shades, so obviously I opted for Nude Thrill - no questions asked! I had been tempted to purchase one of the vivid matte liquid lipsticks before, but always denied myself of one - probably because I didn't actually need it.. I'm looking forward to how this wears and holds up though, so I will report back with my findings!
I haven't tried very many products from Maybelline, I tend to purchase from a wide variety of brands rather than one specific one. I'm making it my mission this year to buy more raved about products and also to buy more from lower end brands.
Obviously within reason and without spending too much money of course, otherwise that will jeopardise my saving goal for this year!
What have you bought from the 'drugstore' so far this year?xoxo
