Little shopping trip goodies

So I headed up to Newry with the sister and the mothership on Saturday for a day out.  I like heading up there to see what's on offer and to hit their Superdrug and Sally's Beauty Supply for a few items we can't get in the South.

First of all let's start with Superdrug.  I was very good in here and only bought what I'd had on my list.  First of all and top of the list was the latest Sleek palette.  It's called Bad Girl and I'm sure you've heard about it online.  It has 12 eyeshadows which are all right up my street so I can't wait to start playing around with it and coming up with looks.  This was £5.99 and well worth it in my book.

I've been wanting to try Sleek's Kajal eyeliner for ages but kept forgetting when I got to the shop but not this time!  This was £3.99 and my first impressions are that I'm going to like this, it's soft and creamy and while hopefully making a good eyeliner, I'm thinking it might make a good eyeshadow base.  Swatches and reviews to follow.  Here it is in all it's glory:

Next I got 3 more shades of the MUA eyeshadows, at £1 each, I couldn't resist.  They had much more of a selection than the Superdrug in Santry but I was good and only picked up the shades I thought I'd use.  Below we have Shade 14, Shade 11 and Shade 3.  On first swatch, Shade 11 might be a dupe for MAC's tempting, but need to research that further :)

The girl at the register in Superdrug in Newry was so nice, as she was ringing my items through, she said that there was an offer going on that if you spent £10 you got a voucher for £3, or something like that hehe She was so nice and rang some items through to bring it to £10.99, then rang the rest through and I got £3 off, so I basically got those 3 eyeshadows for free :)!

Ladies, I have left the best till last.  I went to Sallys Beauty Supply to see what nail varnishes they had.  I've no idea where we can get OPI or China Glaze in Dublin, so I always have to have a lookie when I go to Newry.  I got these 2 babies:

The one on the left is called Cheers to You, it's a gorgeous silvery sparkley varnish that is beautiful and I can't wait to wear.  Just look at the varnish on the right :)  I know I said this about China Glaze's Ruby Pumps, but if Christmas was a nail varnish, it would be this one!  It's called Party Hearty and I lovvvvvvvvvvvve it!! It's a clear nail varnish with tiny silver glitter, slightly bigger green glitter and bigger red glitter all through it.  These 2 nail varnishes deserve their own post, so keep an eye out for them.  They were £5.99 each.

Did anyone buy anything exciting over the weekend?? Tell all :)


  1. I like the silver one.

  2. Hey Karen.I was in Sallys on Drury Street to pick up some wax and hair mousse and they stock both OPI and China Glaze - haven't a clue on prices though - I thought I saw €11 somewhere but could be wrong. They had the new burlesque OPI stuff which was really fab

  3. Looking forward to seeing swatches of the polish. They are lovely.
