Drugstore Beauty Haul!

Hello friends!

I’ve got another drugstore haul for you today because who doesn’t love hauls? And who doesn’t love products that are affordable? Nobody.

Without further ado, lets get into this.

#1. Garnier Skin Active Micellar Water (All In One Cleansing Water)

IMG_0533

Emma bought this in a hunt to try and find a dupe for her beloved Bioderma. She’s still trying it out and then she will give her opinion about it’s possible dupe status. If it is a dupe, then it’s a great price difference. I think this one was only around nine dollars. It also claims to be able to take off waterproof makeup- so that’s very exciting. If you guys have tried it and have thoughts then let us know in the comments! 

#2. NYX Colour Mascara (Mint Julep)

IMG_0536

Even though coloured mascara scares the life out of me, Emma loves it. She picked this up and I have to admit it actually looks really nice on her lashes. We both have very dark brown eyes and this seems to work well with making our eyes pop. If you’re trying to dabble into the coloured lashes game then I think we would highly suggest you try the NYX range before you make the big splurge on a high end product.

#3. L’Oreal Infallible Liner “The Super Slim”

This is pretty self explanatory. We needed a new eyeliner, this one is Emma’s fav at the moment. She usually has pretty on fleek eyes, so i’ll take her word for it. And for around eight bucks, you can’t really go wrong. PS really like the L’Oreal Infallible line in general from the drugstore!

#4. Jergens Natural Glow (Gradual Tan Lotion)

I picked this up for myself and I have to admit i’m still a little scared to try it. Seeing as I spend 99% of my time indoors, even in the summer (thanks to my three jobs) I’m pretty pale. I really want to try this, but I am slightly afraid of having some funky tan lines. If you have tried this please let me know your tips/ thoughts so I can take the plunge and finally use this.

#5. NYX Liquid Suede in “Sandstorm”

This was something on Emma’s want list for quite some time. It’s essentially NYX’s version of a liquid lip. It’s in a nice neutral brown colour that people are seeming to go crazy over. I personally didn’t dig this the first time I used it, but she really loves it. I think I might have to give it another try….

#6. Batiste Dry Shampoo for Dark Hair 

IMG_0523

We needed a new dry shampoo and we spotted this, and instantly put it into our basket. We have such dark hair and it can get very frustrating when the typical formulas leave a white-cast in our hair. We have both tried this and we have a post about it coming soon, so stay tuned for more of our opinions there!

I hope you enjoyed taking a look through our most recent purchases. Let me know what you have tried or want to try in the comments! And as always, any post requests are welcome in the comments. 

Until next time,

Drugstore Beauty Haul!

Nivea Anti-Perspirant Review: FAIL.

Hello!

I am here to talk to you today about a little fail that happened to me a few weeks ago. I was in the market for another deodorant after I finished my Nivea Double Effects in the violet senses. (empties review for that product here!) The store didn’t have the same one so I grabbed another from the same brand.  The one that I grabbed was the Nivea Invisible for Black and White Anti-Perspirant. 

(This photo is one from a store because I have since thrown mine away!)

nivea-invisible-for-black-and-white-stick-43-g-600x600My initial thoughts were this is awesome because I pretty well only wear black and white tops. It seemed like a perfect fit for me.

After I took the product home I used it a few times and noticed it didn’t go on as nicely as the other Nivea deodorant did. That was slightly off putting but it was nothing compared to what was going to happen next.

A few days later I looked down at my desk to see it had wet puddles covering the top. I found that very odd seeing as I had no liquids on the table. I looked around and tried to find the source.

I smelt the liquid and it smelt like deodorant. I picked up everything on the table including my brand new shirt (which was a gift I hadn’t worn yet) to find it soaked in a horrible brown liquid. The deodorant had completely leaked out and stained everything on the table.

So my question is, why was this leaking? It was a solid stick deodorant with no liquid in the product besides the chemicals/fragrance built into the stick. My room was at a normal temperature and it was stored in a dry safe place.

I’m still not sure as to why it leaked, but it did. Since then I have cast aside the Nivea brand for deodorants. I am not willing to risk another disaster.

I hope this has shined some light on this product for you guys. If you have tried it please feel free to leave your experiences in the comments below! Did you have a better one than I did? Did you love it, hate it?

All my love,

Meghan. x
