Cherry Pie : Drugstore Haul

Drugstore Haul

Drugstore haul

So, this past weekend, like every other weekend, I decided to pop into Boots. There's one only about five minutes away and I usually have a quick peek in there on a Saturday or Sunday and pick up things that I definitely don't need and definitely can't afford!

Recently I've been scouring blogs and have kept a little list on my phone of products I've spotted and wanted to try out, so when I popped into Boots on the Saturday just gone I managed to tick a few off my list! I really wanted to get my hands on the Maybelline Big Eyes Palette in Luminous Brown and spotted the little beauties on the shelves recently. I picked up the shade Luminous Brown, which is pretty much my usual sort of brown/copper colours. The palettes have a light catching primer in them so I'm really interested to try these out.

I also really wanted to pick up the Seventeen Super Lash Mascara, which was on a special introductory offer for £4.99 with a free Super Lash Liner. Bargain, but unfortunately I made the rookie error of picking up a brown/black shade instead of pure black. SO ANNOYING!! I'm going to try it out anyway as I can't take it back now that the wrapping has been taken off. I'm such an idiot!! I guess I can always go over the lashes with a black if I really need to. Maybe the Seventeen Lash Lacquer will finally come in handy.

The nib of the Superlash Liner is really interesting. It's pretty much just a felt tip for your eyes, so I'm very interested to see what look I can get from this. I couldn't say no to a freebie so I'm definitely going to try it out and if I don't like it then I'm sure I can find a good home for it.

Last, but not least, I picked up the Seventeen Eye Eye Crayon in Platinum, which I almost forgot about until I checked my list on my phone in the middle of the store. I then saw it staring out at me. I love the white packaging of this pencil and the typography. Lovely! Can't wait to try it out.

What's in your shopping basket this week?


  1. Cool finds...really like the packaging of that mascara!

  2. The mascara looks great, reminds me of wonder woman collection MAC had a couple of years ago!

  3. Great products! I love 17, so I'll definitely have to check out the offers. What did you think of the eye crayon?

  4. All of the seventeen products look fab! I have never tried this brand before <3 I guess I shall add it on my wishlist.

  5. That Maybelline Big Eyes Palette in Luminous Brown looks very pretty & like the kind of colours I would gravitate towards.

  6. I've never seen a Maybelline palette packaged like that! It looks so cool :)
    The mascara looks really nice (other than it being in the wrong shade!) I'd love to hear more about it!

  7. I've got the Seventeen mascara & liner last week too when I bought a few items that I treated myself too :) the mascara is really good for giving me length but it can be clumpy & have excess mascara on the brush :/ but I'll find a way to bypass it :) the liner looks so good doesn't it ? I like that it looks like a felt tip pen :) hopefully it'll be easier to apply too & i won't struggle to put liner on my eyes now haha :P

  8. Ooh that palette looks beautiful, the colours are super pretty! <3

  9. Ooooh, please do a review on the eye crayon please! I'd love to see if it's an alternative to the Collection shadow sticks! But in other news the black/brown in the 17 mascaras almost looks grey on me? It might not be the same for you but I just thought I'd mention that!
