I must be the Queen of L'Oreal!
I think if you're going to buy a drugstore foundation or mascara this is thee brand to go for.
I always find myself getting carried away but you can't complain when it's a 3 for 2 offer.
You kind of stick with what you know though when it comes to good cosmetics.
So I recently went to Superdrug and picked up a few bits and pieces.
Starting from left to right from the top picture
 
Barry M - Nail Paint in 'Matt White'
I think everyone needs a white nail polish and I really like how long Barry M polishes last on your nails. Well this type does I do not rate the Barry M Gelly paints at all but they have the prettiest colour of shades in them.
£2.99
 
L'Oreal - Lumi Magique Pure Light Primer
I think it is so so hard to find a good primer. This one does illuminate your skin making you look like you have more of a glow but it doesn't make your foundation last any longer than usual when you use it under your foundation, which is disappointing. L'Oreal you let me down on this one!
Although it does make your skin feel super soft I wouldn't repurchase this.
£9.99
 
L'Oreal - True Match Foundation
Usually sticking to my L'Oreal - Infallible 16 hour foundation. I decided to go back to one of the foundations that I used as a teen, by that I mean just leaving secondary school. I never really wore make-up in school. What I love about L'Oreal foundations is that they feel so light on the skin, so you don't have that 'cakey' feeling. They are also perfect for the coverage! I'm a coverage girl as I have quite a few skin imperfections.
 
L'Oreal - Skin Perfection - 3 in 1 Micellar Solution 200ml
 This solution removes all traces of make-up!
Not only that, but it also draws out excess oil and impurities leaving your skin feeling soft and toned.
Basically it removes make-up, unclogs pores and tones/soothes the skin, as it states on the front of the bottle. I'm a little late in purchase this beauty blogger sensation. I wouldn't go crazy over it, but it does the job!
£4.99 each
I got this on 'buy 2 for £5' in Superdrug
 
L'Oreal - Lash Architect - Mascara
If you know me by now or you've been following my blog for a while you'll know this is my holy grail mascara. It lengthens and gives your lashes volume like you wouldn't believe. Check out one of my earlier blog post's about this mascara for full details.

£10.29
 
Collection - Lasting Perfection - Concealer
I already have this concealer in Light, but I wanted a medium shade to try out and this one suits my skin tone a lot more at the minute. It's kinder like having a few foundation shades for when you have a lighter or darker tan. I love how long lasting this concealer is for the price it must be one of those beauty items that everybody and their nan has.
 
 
Barry M - Nail Paint in 'Confetti - Sour Apple'
A Sales advisor in Superdrug kind of twisted my arm in to this one telling m how amazing it look's over the top of a white polish. I'm not that keen in all fairness, but I think that's because I like to keep things plain. Boring ZzzZzz!
£3.99

Have you been using any of the products above?

    1. NO WAY!
      You're the first person I know that doesn't like it. Was it too heavy for you? I know some people like more of a natural lash.

  12. Great purchases! I've been wanting to try L'Oreal True Match foundation and Lumi Magique Pure Light Primer. It's a shame that Lumi Magique primer didn't really help with the longevity of the foundation, although I love the fact that it makes the skin looks more radiant :)

    Take care always, from Christine ~ xo

  13. Nice post :) I've been wanted to try the lumi magique primer for ages but I was worried it might be a bit too luminous? Although I am really impressed with Loreal at the moment! I saw a preview of some of their new products coming out so keep your eyes peeled they look amaze!

    1. No way! That's got me quite excited :D Thanks for informing me, I'll definitely be keeping my eyes peeled chick.
      The Primer doesn't have that effect it gives you a nice glow and your foundation glides on over the top of it. I can't wait to use it on my holiday :)
