I was kindly invited to the Superdrug event where they featured the new upcoming products for the fall, especially Superdrug brand products. I didn't even know there were so many! There were tons and tons of beauty products, I felt like a little child in a sweets shop! Parts of the new range include skin care oils and BB creams. Other beauty companies like Cheeky, and GOSH were also in the exhibit. Superdrug is also bringing BlowPro to the UK market - a USA originated one stop shop service for hair styling, excellent for busy people on the go. Superdrug is also going to start in-shop vaccinations, which I think is an excellent idea, fab for the winter.
The brand that stole the show in my opinion was MUA. I am Very very excited about the new releases: eyeshadow palettes and matte lip creams which are just divine! I believe this brand will be the next big thing in drugstore makeup, following the likes of Sleek Makeup and Bourjois.
I've taken many photos from the event - enjoy! Xx
MAC Fixed on Drama lipstick is from the MAC Retro Matte Collection. It is matte brownish plum colour. It is easy to apply over moisturised lips. However because of the matte finish, it is unforgiving on dry flaky lips. I find dark colours a bit more difficult to apply perfectly, so I would recommend using a matching lip pencil.
I'm thrilled to share with you my to-go MAC eyeshadow palette. I tend to favour neutral shades with warm undertones to complement my warm skintone, and they are in general much more wearable and versatile than bright bold colours. The new MAC palettes (without inserts) can hold up to 24 eyeshadows, and here are my top 24 MAC eyeshadow picks - most from the permanent collection.
MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation is a powder and foundation in one that combines good coverage with ease of application. Designed to be used dry, the powder and pigments create a matte, velvety texture. It contains Silica, which helps to maintain a matte finish by absorbing oils on the skin, as well as Talc to provide a smoother, less reflective, matte finish. The talc has been milled to a microscopic size to provide a beautiful texture while allowing the skin to breathe. It is available in a wide range of colours. It can be applied with a brush, sponge, or a powder puff. - MAC
