Updated storage ...and wee haul!

Bit of a delayed post as I have had an essay been wrapped up with editing that the past week. All done and dusted now! hurrah!
Anyways I have been hunting for mini storage drawers forever.. every American youtuber..oh depot..ERR..Nowhere here could I find them..! Was in poundland after work one night, don't ask.. think I went to get some drain cleaner..LOL....and there they were..stacks of mini drawers in white, purple and pink! Went with the pleased with them! May have to get two more!

Here they are..fabulous for £2! (thats the MAC double dazzle promo postcard on top there)

Okay these I got a couple weeks ago, its a range at Superdrug 2True, everything is £1.90 or 3 items for £5..I just wanted a small treat..perfect! Actually love this eyeshadow..its a bit too in it is crumbly..but the colour payoff is fantastic..and it stays on 12 hours NO PROBLEM! Eyeliner matches colour wise perfect and is soft..easy to complaints. I worked the smoky purple eye for a good 3 days after getting it...lovee the colour!

The mascara is comparable to the Maybelline Volume express..which I didn't like much..but I like that clumpy look sometimes..which it creates..its better than the Maybelline..and so cheap..fine for a backup! got some mundane things..but very essential
Dry shampoo..fabulous..trying this scent out, normally go with the Tropical! Its a lifesaver morning after the gym..refreshes your hair when you don't have time for a full wash etc.
Trusty Neutrogena..its fading my acne scars ..10 year old acne scars I may add.. so..I am keeping on with it...despite the stink! Trying out this wash..its part of the DEEP CLEAN line not the Visibly clear..smells good, really tingly breakouts.

Okay here is what I picked up last Monday..had a shopping day..lovely and relaxed!

Went to MAC to get the Prep and Prime Transparent Finishing powder. Totally sold out, and not going to be back in my local store for 4 weeks. Was so upset..was the only thing I actually wanted!! The girl was super sweet and gave me a sample from the pot they had on the stand..hurrah!
I then was racking my brain what was next on my list at MAC..remembered Elle mentioning spring bean lustreglass..picked that was £10.20 or thereabouts! Just as promised..gorgeous like honey on the lips..fantastic! the shocking green colour in the tube just makes it more fun!

I had all intentions of getting Maybelline foundation..the new one and the dream mousse..I know the colour matches..not allergic..etc. Then suddenly I saw the SLEEK stand.. sleek is a brand I used as a kid.. all sorts of cheap glitter nail polishes and lipsticks.. its been relaunched..slicked up..and wow am I impressed. Got this cream to powder foundation..gorgeous.. will have to review it at a later date. Was about £ same price range as Maybelline. They have some amazing products, a brick style bronzer(cough cough looks a lot like Bobbi Brown) and the eyeshadow palettes and worth a look!

Another brand causing a stir at Superdrug, BEAUTYUK, Palettes are 2.93 (with Student discount 2.63!). This is the neutral palette..the colours and pigmentation..rock!

Anyways that's it...Now on makeup ban for 4 weeks!! Have plenty to play with for a month.. Double Dazzle is out here in 2 weeks time, so I can totally wait for that..hopefully they wont sell out fast like the Colour Ready did!
