Drugstore Mini Haul: Part 1

Hey everyone:)
I went shopping at the weekend and picked up a few things from Boots and Superdrug, I'll quickly run through the first couple of items now and finish the haul later when my lightings better for pictures. (Its been snowing all day, so its pretty dark and cloudy outside)

From left to right: Rimmel Renew & Lift Brightening Power In 100 Ivory; Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in 700 Nude Delight; Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in 006 Pink Blush; Gosh Light 'N Shine Lip Glaze in 04; Gosh Touch Up Concealer in No 1; Gosh Nail Lacquer in 045 Silk; Rimmel Colour Mousse in 014 Mermaid

Rimmel had a 3 for 2 offer on in boots, and in Superdrug Gosh were doing an offer of buy any 2 products and get the Light 'N Shine Lip Glaze free. So of course I said yes to that opportunity:).

First of all the colour mousse. Initially I (niavely) thought these would be similar in consistancy to the Mac paint pots. They're a lot thicker and moussier (duh) in texture, which I guess I should have known. I noticed they also have a slight watery feel to them, but I actually like this as it makes the colour much more buildable and easier to blend. If you do build the colour up, the final result is extremely pigmented and probably not something you'd wear every day, I really like this nonetheless. I think theyre good quality for money and an interesting alternative to powders and cream eyeshadows:). (They also don't smudge after they've set on the skin which is great seeing how I always seem to end up with eye makeup all over my face, attractive!)

I'm really happy I bought this concealer. They only have it in two shades and I got the lightest of the two. This concealer is lovely, it blends nicely and doesn't apply too thick and cakey or too sparce. It stays nicely throughout the day and does help brighten shadowy areas of the face. A little of this goes a long way.

I'll return later with the rest of this haul:).
