Blogmas – Superdrug Black Friday Haul

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
1xLiquid liner
2xFoundations
1xConcealer
1xLip stick
3xLip cremes

Almost a full face of make up for under £23, not bad going at all.

What did you buy in the Black Friday sales?

Mia’s End of Season Sale

Arriving at a sale as soon as the doors open, not to miss a good deal, isn’t really my bag.
Until today.

Mia is a boutique with beautiful clothes, shoes, handbags and jewellery, that are good quality and at an affordable price.

This morning they held a sale where all items were £10 or less.
Of course, you’d think, that’s insane, and that they’d have left over unwanted stock in all the wrong sizes that no-one wants. But this was not the case. There were some lovely pieces in the sale, but there was only one or two of each size of the item, this is something I realised quickly, and man, I got some absolute bargains!

The first item to catch my eye was this beautiful navy patterned halter neck dress. The dress is full length, so it’ll keep out a draft on breezier days, in the last few weeks of summer. And If I don’t get a chance to wear it, then it’ll be a new piece for next summers wardrobe.

The next item I found was one that I’ve seen many times, but never had the guts to wear.
Although it is a simple jumper with a shirt and collar, I would look at this item and instantly think ‘school girl’. And the fact that it has a detailed collar, is way out of my comfort zone. Another style that I’ve wanted to try but always looked too ‘preppy’. The beaded collar was pretty nd delicate, and s e elling point. I’m thrilled with my purchase and to try 2 new looks in 1.

A cardigan is my go to look for autumn and winter. I pair them with jeans, dresses, skirts, with boots, or heels, they’re the perfect go to item. I had a few colours to choose from, but thought I’d get the most wear out if a classic striped black, white and cream cardigan.

My last, and favourite piece is this Navy and white blazer. I’m a sucker for blazers. They’re smart, effortless and a key item for every wardrobe. I’ve never been brave enough to own one that isn’t just a block colour, but I thought this one was a beauty. When I was taking pictures, I did burst into laughter when it hits me that it reminded me of Bettlejuice.
(One of my favourite films, with one of my favorite actors, with an iconic suit… So is it really a bad thing?)
Anyway, I look forward to strutting in this for every occasion I can get away with.

The sale was well worth it, and the four items cost an amazing £36.00! What a steal!

Let me know what items are your weakness in a sale, and what you look for first.
