Good evening friends,
The week leading up to Black Friday, I received dozens of emails, pop ups and Instagram posts with deals. I couldn’t avoid it.
I had no intention to spend, I was staying strong. Then the thought crept in, I could buy now, and use in the future?
A few months ago I decided to have a spend free month, that didn’t go as plan, instead, I’ve decided to have a No spend 2021 (upcoming blog to explain), and to, where possible use only cruelty free products.
In order to top up on the basics and not get carried away, I looked through my make up drawers to check what products I was low on/what is due to expire in the next couple of months, and made a list
Here’s what I bought –
Superdrug Studio London Natural Eyeshadow Palette
Original Price: £6.00/Sale price: £3.00
Perfect shade 12 pan palette for all seasons, night and day.
Collection Lasting Colour Lipstick
Rose Wood 21, Original Price: £2.39/Sale price £1.66
I was originally suckered in my the name, any PLL fans here? But the shade is just beautiful, creamy and long lasting.
B. Flawless Matte Foundation W4 & N4
Original Price: £2.50 each/ Sale price £1.73 each
I purchased these in 2 shades as I’m a little lighter in the winter months, and for that price, why not take your pick.
e.l.f. Expert Liquid Liner Jet Black
Original Price: £3.00/sale price £2.08
I haven’t tried this liquid liner before, but the reviews were fantastic, and is one of the most inexpensive liquid liners I’ve seen.
Revolution Conceal and Define Concealer Original Price: £3.99/ sale price £2.76
I’ve never seen such a big dofer applicator for a concealer, this will give much better coverage and less waste as one or two swoops will do the job.
Revolution Pro Microblading Precision Eyebrow Pencil Choc Original Price £3.99 /Sale price £2.76
I haven’t tried the Revolution brow pencil before, but it’s less than half the price of my normal eyebrow pencil, and almost the same shade.
Revolution Darling 122 & Heart race 113 Crème Lip & Hustle 119 Crème Lip
Original Price: £3.20 each/Sale price £2.22 each
I’m a sucker for nude and pink shades, who isn’t? All 3 are beautiful, but Hustle is a great show for NYX Abu Dhabi.
Superdrug’s own brand products are now proudly cruelty free.
I did find some absolutly great deals with other brands, but whilst googling if they were cruelty free, the animal testing pictures that popped up, broke my heart and I couldn’t bring myself to pick up a bargain for the expense of an animal.
Subtotal exc. savings£30.97
Promotional Savings- £8.59
Total inc. savings & redemptions £22.38
1×12 pan eyeshadow palette
1xEye brow pencil
Almost a full face of make up for under £23, not bad going at all.
