New Superdry Beauty Items

Thursday, January 31, 2013


Launching tomorrow is a collection of Superdry Beauty items which is pretty extensive including make-up brushes, cosmetics and accessories such as compact mirrors and nail files.
The presentation is best described as neon meets industrial - fresh, sharp and very funky (I love the little silicone touches)!

So here is a sneak peek of a few items set to launch tomorrow...


First up we have the Superdry Lip Glaze (£7.50) which comes in five shades and does remind me a little of Stila's Lip Glazes both in design and texture.
To use you simply screw up the base and apply straight on to the lips using the brush tip for precise application.
Superdry's Lip Glaze's have a light vanilla scent, a slightly sticky texture but are fairly moisturising,
they are not overly pigmented but great for a light sheer wash of colour or to layer over drying lipsticks.
I have the shade Rose Pink which is a bright but sheer coral pink with golden nuances.


There is also a range of duo eyeshadows (£9.50) - three in total, which have the most silky soft, finely milled texture I have experienced in a long,long, long while. 
Out of all the items I have tested from the new Superdry collection these are by far the stand out item,
they are really pigmented, blend like a dream and wear for hours without creasing or fading.
Each duo consists of shades that have been designed to compliment one and other but can of course be worn alone or with whatever eyeshadow you wish.
I was sent the Blackboard/Fog duo which consists of a deep metallic charcoal segment and a bright silver tone, worn together they create a wonderful smoky eye.
I really can't fault this formula at all and urge you to try them out for yourself.


With summer firmly on my mind I was happy to test out a new bronzer, Superdry's Bronzer (£12) only comes in one shade at the moment - Terracotta, which surprisingly is pretty universal.
I have swatched it heavily to show just how deep the shade but it can also be sheered out or applied with a light hand meaning anyone from fair to medium deep skin tones can wear this bronzer.
Terracotta reminds me a little of Benefit's Hoola Bronzer, it is almost matte but does have tiny shimmer particles to brighten the skin but they are subtle enough that you can use it to contour.
Summed up it is a well pigmented powder product that has great colour pay off and wears well even on oily skin - it lasted 8 hours on my skin when used as a brown toned blush.
Oh I nearly forgot to add that the bright yellow band that is nestling around the edge of the bronzer is a detachable wrist band...pretty cool huh?


Every girl needs a good compact mirror in their handbag or pocket for on the go make-up applications etc.
Superdry have a small collection of pocket mirrors (£5) in six various shades which each feature detachable silicone cover for extra protection when rolling around in the pits of your handbag!


Another handbag staple has to be a nail file, nothing irks me more than snagging or breaking a nail on the go and having to wait until I reach the comfort of home to sort it out!
If neon is your thing you are in luck because as of tomorrow you will be able to pick up either an individual nail file (£2) or a handy duo of files that come in a travel pouch (£4.50) perfect for any on the go nail dilemmas.

All of the above products and more launch tomorrow via Superdry - link, 
other items worth looking out for include the neon pink Kabuki brush and squeeze tubes of lip fix!

  5. The eyeshadow packaging is much alike the old Ruby & Millie ones. I see they found a use for all of the un-used packaging left behind when that brand went bust.

  8. I would never have thought they'd go into Makeup. I think the eyeshadows look like really good quality.. but I'm not a fan of the packaging as a whole.. it's not very girly? xx
