Collective May Haul – From Boots and Superdrug – La Roche-Posay, Max Factor, Barry M, Makeup Revolution and more

I haven’t shared a haul post in a bit, I used to post them quite regularly but I don’t buy as often, now, and I just don’t want to post them all of the time anyway. As such, I decided to do a collaborative haul for May, some bits I’ve picked up throughout the month – It’s all been bought with 3-for2’s or other money off deals as I am far too strict on myself to buy things at full price, haha, so lots of bargains too.

I picked up three Barry M nail paints in Superdrug during a shopping trip and this gorgeous, special which was released to celebrate 50 years of Superdrug was the first in to my basket; I just love polishes that make a jelly sandwhich look and was itching to see what this looked like on the nails. 

The other reason I was in Superdrug was to try and get some of the new Gelly Hi Shine shades but most of them were sold out! Thankfully one of my favourites was still available so this dusky blue/grey shade, ‘Elderberry’ became mine. 

I needed a third shade to complete my 3-for-2 and I’ve lusted after this metallic looking ‘Teal’ shade for a while so it finally joined my collection!
I’ve got  couple of Superdrug online orders, too, the free postage over £10 gets me a lot! As such this was two orders and the extra Makeup Revolution bits at the end were bought to top one order up to the £10 threshold, And they were three for two, arg bargains galore.

Anyway, as you can see above, I was far too tempted by the ‘Disappear Till Tomorrow’ palette by Makeup Revolution after getting their ‘Make Believe’ one in my Dream Box. For four pounds you can’t go wrong with this (You can see this swatched, yesterday, HERE)

Trying to improve my fingers for nail pictures so I’m going to try out the Sally Hansen ‘Gel Cuticle Remover’ – I’ve heard good things about this so I am hoping it works for me too.

I’ve managed to maintain my nails quite well, recently, so to try and keep that going I thought I’d try the Sally Hansen ‘Maximum Strength’ as strength is something that my nails Definitely lack.

Summer is coming so coral/orange lips are very much on the horizon for me – This pretty lipgloss will happily take a place amongst those for warmer days. 

I love love love the Makup Revolution ‘Pure Pigments’ so they were an obvious choice to boost up the order. This shade is called ‘Affluent’ and it’s just a bit beautiful. I’m going to try and put together a swatch post of the five of these that I have, soon. 

Lastly, for the Superdrug items, is another of the pigments. This pinky toned one is called ‘Confront’ and it’s really rather pretty.
I had to do a Boots order to get nappies and the likes and also to try and get myself an essential, in the form of a facial SPF product. Now I could’ve saved money and got something with mediocre reviews for £6 but when I found the La Roche-Posay ‘Anthelion XL – Untra-Light Fluid 50+’ down to £11 I thought it could well be worth the extra £5. I can’t tell you, yet, how I find it as it’s been cold and icky ever since I ordered it. Of course.

I had some money off and I also needed to top the order up a little to get free postage so a 3-for-2 Max Factor deal caught my attention. I actually paid very little for this trio when you count the money off, extra boots points, 3-for-2 and the fact that I was about £6 away from free postage (postage would have cost £4)… Ok, yes, I’m making justifications but that’s me, ’tis what I do.

I decided to get some Max Factor items as it’s a brand I’ve really not tried too much of. The first item is the one above, the ‘Miracle Touch – Creamy Blush’ in ‘Soft Candy’ – A beautiful warm orange/red shade with a sheer consistency.

I’ve been trying to get more proficient with eyeliner recently so I decided to see what an offering from Max Factor would be like. I picked the ‘Masterpiece Glide & Define – Liquid Eyeliner’ in Black/Brown as I enjoy a brown eye liner from time-to-time.

Lastly I picked up this ‘Xperience – Sheer Gloss Balm’ in ‘Coral’. I’m a sucker for balmy lip products so that’s the motivation with this one, I knew when I ordered it that the name coral wasn’t very accurate as it seemed more pink, as you can see from the end, but it’s a nice shade none the less. I’ll try to get a worn swatch of this soon I think.

So there you go – A rather nice bundle of goodies and a whole lot of savings made – I may’ve got a lot of items there but I really didn’t spend much money for them, oh I do love it when that happens! Obviously the La Roche-Posay is the expensive buy but  I class that as an essential, really.
