Eyeshadow Game Changer – W7 Shade & Swap


I’d never given anything by W7 a try before, but I’d always heard about them doing Urban Decay dupes and stuff and I see them in the makeup bit of Tkmaxx all the time. I was in there other week and decided to grab their Shade and Swap Makeup Colour Swapper on a whim as I thought it might be slightly better than the clearly pro method of wiping eyeshadow on my arm to clean my brush (I’m no guru ok).  Continue reading

I’d saved a lot of money up for Leeds fest this year but I decided I wasn’t going, so I ended up having a little bit of a clothes shopping spree and also treating myself to some makeup obvs. (Head to my insta to see what I got @makemeupinsidee). It was 3 for 2 at Superdrug and who am I to pass up on that so I got this MUA Undress Your Skin Highlighter in Pearlescent Sheen bc I just fell in love with it and it looked like the colour of highlight I’d been looking for for ages.

£5.99 Holy Grail Foundation


The dreaded day came last week when my Urban Decay All Nighter Foundation ran out (the horror – you can check out my review of it here). My student budget didn’t quite stretch to re-buying it, and as would only happen to me in my disaster-prone life I had to get the train home that morning with no foundation to wear to go out for a meal that night. In the hour or so after uni that I had to spare before my train I dashed into Superdrug, swatched a foundation, said “That’s probably fine”, and ended up with the Maybelline Fit Me Matte and Poreless Foundation (normal to oily) in the shade 105 Natural Ivory.

After I’d rushed out the shop I dropped a quick message to the makeup society group chat asking them if I’d mugged myself off but it turns out it’s a foundation a few of them regularly use – so I’d really hit the jackpot!  Continue reading

I’ve been trying to cut down on buying makeup recently; as you can see from this post, that just hasn’t been working out that well! But to give me some credit, these cream eyeshadows from Superdrug were on sale for just 49p each! Me being me and seeing a bargain, I bought all three shades to try out. I’d never really delved into the cream eyeshadow world before (or even the individual eyeshadow world), so let’s get into my review of the B. Stunning Vibrant Eyeshadows! Continue reading
