After watching endless makeup tutorials on youtube by the likes of lollipop26, AllThatGlitters21 and juicystar07, I've come to the conclusion that my makeup collection is awfully boring. Seeing as I am heading off to uni in 2 weeks I figured I didn't have much £££ to be spending on makeup :/ soooo off I headed to Boots & Superdrug on a budget.
My purchases included:
Collection2000 Hot looks nail varnish in:
27 - Wham
33 - Button moon
34 - Hoola Hoop (which is the prettiest pink colour)
23 - Show off
I must admit I was a bit dubious before purchasing, due to Collection2000 being a more cheap & cheerful brand, not known to have great quality. I'm pleased to say that I am in fact pleased with the products.
(I'm wearing 27 - Wham)
I actually applied this on Sunday, so 3 days ago & as you can see, it's lasted quite well. Although I did have to apply 3 times to achieve this colour. But as a whole, I'm pleased :)
Barry M Dazzle Dusts in:
39 (A goldypinky dust with gold glitter - my fave colour out of my small collection)
25 (A dark gold dust which is lovely)
53 (A chocolate brown shimmer)
78 (A lovely turquoise)
I actually did a funky smokey eye with these earlier, was very nice. These cost around £4.40 from Superdrug and you do actually get quite a fair amount in the tubs. I'd prefer to apply wet, but unfortunately they themselves seem to prefer being applied dry :/
I actually bought a Ruby & Millie 7mm eyeliner brush to apply a thin line of Dazzle dust under my eyes too, and whilst I was at the R&M booth, I saw an eyeliner I felt I had to have in Brown.
(Oh hello Niveacaregloss)
I also bought Maybelline New York Pure liquid mineral foundation in Fawn 040, as my Sand 030 seems to have gone a little bit too light and in pictures I end up looking ill :/

After watching one of AllThatGlitters21's videos about mascara, I felt the need to purchase L'oreal telescopic & I must agree, I love it. It makes my lashes look 10x longer than a lot of others I've used in the past. And by buying that in Boots, I received a £5 voucher for No7, so I paid an extra £2 on top of the voucher and had the Amazing Eyes pencil in black. The one with the blender on the other end. I love it.
Anything else? Hmmmm... YES! Eventhough these aren't make up products.
Earrings from Matalan - £4 with 75% off. A definite steal!
A cream quilted bag with black piping and a gold and black over the shoulder chain & matching shoes :)
Then bits & bobs for university, including kitchen utensils and Qtips.
So yeah, I think I've had a successful day of shopping. Eventhough I did manage to spent above my budget, but it's okay because I'm happy :)
