The Travel Haul Series: Drugstore Makeup


What I loved about England? There is a blooming 'Boots' EVERYWHERE. Like, everywhere. That means there was always a temptation to quickly nip in and see what its got to offer.

The UK has brands that we don't get here in Australia - like the full range of Soap & Glory products, Collection, Makeup Academy etc. As I follow many UK bloggers (HEY GUYS) it results in lusting over various products that I can't get here. So when I hit up the UK I wanted to take full advantage and finally purchase things I can't get here. So yeah, this is my lil haul. :)

Collection 'Lasting Perfection' concealer in 01 Fair & 02 Cool Medium
This is my holy grail concealer so whenever I hit up the UK I BUY UP. I bought about 5 in total. #noregrets

Soap & Glory 'Supercat Eyeliner Pen' and 'Brow Archery Sculpting Crayon and Gel'
Supercat eyeliner is another holy grail so I had to buy another one. Surprisingly the one I bought in January last year is still working perfectly so i'm very impressed with how long it has lasted for.
Also got this brow product and I think I really like it, will have to see how it goes.

Soap & Glory 'Wonderbronze' shimmer brick
Isn't it pretty?! I think this would look lovely on the cheeks in summer for a really glowy bronze look.

Maybelline Colour Tattoos in 'Pink Gold', 'Creamy Beige' and 'One and on Bronze'

This is my favourite eyeshadow ever so I was delighted to see that the UK has a larger colour range. I got these three pretties to add to ze collection. I already own "On and on bronze' but it's my ultimate staple so I had to get a back up.

Collection Eyeshadow Pencil in 'Vanilla Sky'
When I swatched this in the shop I was delighted to see that it barely budged when I was trying to wipe it off. The main reason I got this because I think it would be a great highlight under the brows and in the inner corner of the eyes. It was only like three pounds so would totally recommend picking this up, i'm really liking it.

Let me know if you've tried any of these products and what you thought of them.
