Superdrug haul: Revlon, Bourjois, Rimmel, Miss Sporty

This week's post is on some bits I picked up from Superdrug in their 3 for 2 cosmetics offer.

Firstly, the Revlon Skinlights Face Illuminator. The skinlights illuminator's were discontinued in 2006 but Revlon have now brought them back as part of their PhotoReady range. They come in three shades Bare Light, Pink Light, and Bronze Light. I chose Pink Light to brighten my skin! £11.99 each

I also picked up the Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation. I've read some great reviews of this and they've recently released a newer version with serum in but I chose this one as it's a little cheaper!

I found choosing a colour very difficult as I've never bought a Bourjois product before and the shades go from 51-55 so it didn't give me much indication! That's the thing I don't like about getting high street foundations as you always have to guess the shade and can't get it matched perfectly. In the end I settled for shade no. 52 - Vanilla

As you can see it is a little darker than my hand but it blends really well on my face so I think I picked the best shade!

I also picked up a second foundation in the 3 for 2 offer. This is because I have combination skin and I find that wearing illuminating or radiance foundations can make my skin very shiny and I need something for everyday wear when I have long days at uni! I tried the 16 hour foundation by Rimmel before and it was long lasting but still made my skin a bit greasy so I'm trying out the Stay Matte foundation this time.

Despite having pale skin and usually going for ivory shades I find the Rimmel Ivory far too pale for me so I got Soft Beige instead. I tried the Classic Beige before and that was too orange so if you're a bit of an in between skin tone like me, Classic Beige might be the right one for you!

Finally I bought the Miss Sporty Tan So Fine Bronzer in Light. This has been one of my favourite bronzers for a long time now, and I'm not usually a fan of some of the cheaper make up ranges! I've read some negative reviews of this before but I really do love this bronzer. It is similar to the Loreal Glam Shine Duo as it is two toned and the yellowy shade helps to neutralise the colour so it's a perfect shade and not too orange. Plus its a bargain!

Have you tried any of these products before? Have you been stocking up in the 3 for 2 offers?
