My bargains today - Superdrug Special

I usually don't really do 'haul' posts. I don't even like the word the word 'haul' but I am very excited about the bargains I've made today and before taking 6 months to review the products, I thought it'd be more beneficial to write about them now, while the offers are still on. I can't tell you if the following products are good, I haven't had the chance to try them but I am super excited about them. As part of their beauty month, Superdrug is doing lots of offers and here are the ones which I couldn’t resist.


First things first, I bought this round eyeshadow brush (no.13) from Superdrug, from the Superdrug Pro Range. Ever since I saw the range blogged about on, I couldn't wait to try them. The brush was £4.99 instead of £6.99 so I thought there couldn't be a better time to purchase it.       

As you will see from the picture below, the brush handle of the Superdrug Pro Brush no.13 is much longer than a Mac blending brush 217, but the actual brush is smaller, rounder and I can't wait to use it into the nook and crannies of the crease of my eye. The offer is valid until 14 February. Not all Superdrugs hold the pro line, so check with your makeup addict friends beforehand to avoid any disappointment, tantrums and all that jazz.

I used to have a Revlon eye contour brush ages ago. The handle was too long. It would ping out of my coca cola glass which doubles up a brush holder and its mere existence would annoy me so much that it had to go a new home. However I really liked the brush in itself so when I saw the 'travel size' contour shadow brush also on offer at £3.99 (usually £5.99) I just had to get it. Please scroll down below to see how it compares handle length wise to the mac 217 blending brush and why I like to call it ‘travel size’.      



It also would have been rude not to get the bargainous Revlon covered lid brush at £3.99 (RRP £5.99)


Then I treated myself to a spare glass file, to complement my beloved
Barbara Daly glass file. The Revlon glass nail file was £3.99 instead of £4.99.

Last but not least, the ‘Special Brunette dry shampoo from Superdrug was looking at me with puppy eyes and it had go home with me. It was just £0.99 and it would have been a crime not to buy it. Not tried it yet, I can't tell you if it is as good at the Batiste brunette or any other batiste but the chocolate brownie scent is to die for. YUM.


Interested by any of these offers, be quick. They are only valid in February, with some offers ending on February 14th.

I love my Superdrug and that is all. ^_^


Have you bought anything from Superdrug lately? xx

I love Superdrug :) I love going to Superdrug's in larger cities, there's so many more brands that I can't get in my local one.

Whee I love a bargain. I prefer short handled brushes too... If the handle is too long, it hits against the mirror if I have to get right in close because of my bad eyes.

I have the Revlon covered lip brush. I love it. My superdrug doesn't stock that pro brush range and I didn't see them when I was in Birminghams' biggest one either. :o Don't like the scent of any of the Superdrug Dry Shampoos that I've tried except for the one with the Orange cap and I find it far superior to Batiste but it might just be my hair. Batiste always leaves me with residue! I picked up a lot of slimfast bars. I've written a post on those too and some Boots deals but scheduled to post.

Ooooo 99p for Chocolate Brownie Dry Shampoo! Think I need to stock up and get quite a few at that price.

Also tempted to have a look at the Revlon brushes now as they are on offer.

Thanks for the post Liloo :)

Thanks for the pictures! Now I kind of know what a Superdrug looks like! I'm always curious how your stores look over there in the UK!

PinkSweetSz said...

Your superdrug looks much better than mine lol! Love your buys x

Beauty Daze said...

Ahh that's some great purchases! Every time I go into Superdrug, I look at these brushes, but I've never bought any. Your purchases have made me seriously consider going back and having a proper look!

Charlie said...

Trip to SD is in order for me, I love make-up brushes the more the better...anything to put off the task of washing them *groan*xxx

Clare said...

I never thought I'd say this, but the revlon #13 brush looks super cute - I like how it's a short but dense brush with a tapered edge. Must investigate....

SilhouetteScreams said...

ARGH I wish they sold those Revlon brushes here! I think I've only ever seen a foundation brush sold in these parts. I swear Australia just doesn't want people to be able to buy brushes easily.

Oooh I might have to try that dry shampoo, though I do love Batiste Wild! I hardly go to Superdrug really but I did last week and I'm impressed with how much nicer it is than it used to be, they seems to stock loads more good stuff (especially the make up) too.

Thankyou for this post :) I'll be heading down to superdrug this week to take advantage of these offers :) xx
