Superdrug Glasgow Fort Haul

Superdrug Glasgow Fort Haul

If you live in Glasgow you may be please to know that in the Glasgow Fort a new Superdrug has opened which is great in size and so clean! Fellow beauty junkies will know the misery of a poorly stocked beauty stand or even worse a counter in which every product has been tampered with. Ladies and gents can we please just test the tester products and leave the rest alone. Please and thank you! Anyway you can't visit a new store and leave empty handed, that just isn't the done thing so here is what I picked up this time around because much like the Terminator I will be back!

Superdrug Glasgow Fort Haul

Garnier Miracle Skin Cream (£8.66 - link) and Garnier Miracle Eye Cream (£8.66 - link)
I'm one of those people that has to try everything new, if a stand says new I simply have to walk over and investigate it. So easily lead! Anyway the Garnier Miracle Skin Care line is fairly new and offer (win,win) that has been developed with micro-pigments which transforms on contact with skin to self-adjust to your skin tone and optically correct signs of ageing. It contains an SPF20 and aims to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and age spots. I will be honest in saying that I didn't really read into much of either product and plopped them into my basket on a whim but both have lovely textures and so far so good but I do fear this is aimed at a more mature skin than mine.

Maybelline Electro Baby Lips £2.99 each - link
At the moment in Superdrug all Maybelline products are on a buy one get one half price offer, now is a good time to stock up on essentials or try out those Maybelline products you forever say you will but don't get around to. I first saw the Maybelline Electro Baby Lips in Walmart in Florida last July but decided against purchasing any. Well I've only had to wait a full year for them to hit UK shores and that entire time must like a lost love I've thought what if. Slightly dramatic but I have wanted to try them out for the longest time. Honesty is my policy and with that in mind I do have to declare these are not all that special. They aren't worlds apart from the original Maybelline Baby Lips, if you were hoping for crazy pigmentation, think again! They are sheer. On the plus side they are pretty cheap, great for keeping in a pocket/bag and smell great. I will get swatches up later today for those curious.

Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Fatigue Blur in Cool Rose £7.99 (not online yet)
Maybelline have a good few new launches out at the moment and since I am a fan of the original Maybelline Baby Skin I deciced to add this to my hoard. Honestly I don't quite get it. The idea is that it is a primer which blurs imperfections (pores/fine lines) as well as brightening the skin. The illuminating factor I can't disagree with but it lacks the same silky texture as the original Maybelline Baby Skin and as a result isn't a great primer. At the moment I'm still trying to get to grips with this so my full review could be as much as a week away but yeah I'm not blown away by this product.

Maybelline Lasting Drama Black Shock Gel Liner £8.99 - link
I have yet to use this - I'm saving it for dinner tonight so I have no real opinions as of yet.
Basically this is the highstreet's dupe for Benefit Benefit Criminally Easy 'They're Real' Push Up Gel Liner. From swatching this in store I can say they are very, very similar. I will obviously find out if it applies in a similar manner and what the wear time is later on this evening but if you do like the idea of the Benefit Criminally Easy 'They're Real' Push Up Gel Liner but not so much the price this could be just the very solution.

L'Oreal Color Rich L'Ombre Pure Eyeshadows £5.49 each and oddly not online via Superdrug
I am obsessed with the L'Oreal Color Rich L'Ombre Pure Eyeshadows. Obsessed!
They not only look luxe but they feel incredible on the skin, they have a light but buttery soft texture that melts on to the eyelids, blends with ease. If ever an eyeshadow could be described as dream it is this line. I will share a full review with swatches of my new additions but in essence they remind me of the L'Oreal Infalliable Eyeshadows but in pressed form. If you haven't tried the L'Oreal Color Rich L'Ombre Pure Eyeshadows do it, do it now. Oh and in Superdrug they are currently on a 3 for 2!

Superdrug Glasgow Fort Haul

Rimmel Nude Delight Moisture Renew Lipstick £6.49 - link.
I have wanted this exact shade for quite some while now, okay since I watched Lisa Eldridge apply it to Alexa Chung. The annoying thing about Rimmel Nude Delight Moisture Renew Lipstick is that it seems to be a firm favourite for many resulting in it often being sold out or as I earlier mentioned people treating the new lipsticks as testers. Luckily the new Glasgow Fort Superdrug is well stocked so I managed to snag three, two of my friends also wanted to try this warm nude out too. The formula is beautiful and feels much more luxurious than £6.49. Rimmel can do no wrong in my eyes.

Do you like the look or sound of anything that I have picked up?
Or more importantly (ha!) what have you been digging from the beauty stands on the highstreet lately? I can always go for a little encouragement.

  6. The Maybelline liner looks very interesting..would be great to try. I have heard a lot of 'not so good' things about the "They're Real" eye liner so would be good to see if this is actually better!

  15. Wasn't the Maybelline liner out before the benefit one? Can it really be called a dupe if it came first?

    ReplyDelete
  16. I'm super interested in trying the Maybelline gel liner! Glad to hear it is much like the Benefit liner so many covet! I'd love to pick up a few of the L'Oreal Mono shadows as well. The colours look so rich and luxurious.

  20. It's a shame about the Baby Skin Blur primer, the illuminating sounds great but it's the texture that I love about the original, so without that I don't think I'll be rushing out to try it!

  21. Garnier face cream is amazing, got a small trial size of it and i love it. Will be looking into the full bottle

  22. I'd really like to try the Loreal eye shadow, it looks really good!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Loooove the Loreal eyeshadows. So pretty!! But I didn't like the Garnier miracle cream. Didn't like the smell and found it to be a bit orangey on me, plus I felt my skin was left a bit dehydrated with it. Sent it back!

  24. The l'Oreal eyeshadows look beautiful!! XO

  25. I'm using the Instant Fatigue Blur, the rose one, and it works more like a skin perfector than like a primer. In my case it helps me too brighten my under eye area such is really problematic :)
    By the way, the original Baby Skin primer is a bit oily on my skin... is it the same with you?
    Have a wonderful day
    xoxo

  26. Wow there are some great releases! NZ is so behind that it will be probably months until we even get some of this stuff! The new Baby Skin Fatigue blue sounds very interesting.
