Just a quick notice to say thank you to all the support I’m getting recently, all the positive feedback and great comments. I really appreciate them all! I hope you’ve all noticed too that I’ve got a proper URL now! So from now on it’ll be CatsandContours.com which is SUPER exciting! I’ve also celebrated my 50th blog post and will be announcing a new contest in the next couple of days!
Today’s post as decided by the lovely people on my twitter (here) is going to be my new makeup haul from this month so far! I’ve had a few bits from Superdrug and one item from Primark. At the moment Superdrug is running a promotion of 3 for 2 on all makeup products and naturally I wanted to take advantage of this!
I’ll start with the stuff from Superdrug first:
First are these eye shadows from the brand Freedom which are super metallic and pigmented. They remind me a lot of the MUG Foiled shadows and have a great payoff especially when using a spritz of Mac Fix+.
The first picture swatches of the shades I have (1, 2, 3 and 8), the first is taken without the flash and the second with the flash on. They come in single pans for only £2 which are magnetic to fit it with any of your magnetic palettes – This leads onto my next product!
This is the Freedom Pro Artist Magnetic Palette. It fits a fair few shadows in, it’s made of sturdy plastic with BIG mirror on one half of the palette and it was only £5!
Next up is this eye shadow by Makeup Revolution, it’s an “Eye foil” which mean that it has a very different texture to most other shadows – it’s an exact dupe of the Stila Magnificent Metals foiled eyeshadow. They suggest mixing it with the eye that they provide in the tin, however I feel that it works best pressed straight onto the eyelid with a synthetic packing brush. I already have the rose gold version of this and it creates a stunning finish. This came in at a tiny £3!
Next up are these Freedom eyebrow pomades, I’m a firm believe that Anastasia Dipbrow is the BEST thing to ever happen to my brows ever but this is an EXACT dupe! I was skeptical on ordering it and a few of the reviews said that it ran a bit dark so I ordered my usual shade of Auburn and a slightly light Caramel Brown. I didn’t find that they run dark and have found they lasts just as long as my dipbrow. I never thought I’d say it but this has definitely replaced my Anastasia Beverly Hills dipbrow (£15) as it came in at a shocking £5 and it comes in 11 different shades!
Next up is this beautiful cased rose gold lipstick in the shade Chauffeur which to be honest I only brought because the case was pretty and it was only £3 and it’s a SUPER creamy and pigmented formula.
Finally is one item from Primark which I picked up because it was super shiny! It’s just a super basic mirror to chuck in my handbag when I pop out anywhere. This was reduced and was £1
I hope you guys enjoyed this post as much as I did writing it (and playing with the makeup!)
Also as a bonus here is a random cat picture!
