I went to the drugstore to shop a certain collection which I stumbled upon the stores' website. Just my luck, the store I went to didn't have that collection (yet). :( As I can never walk out of a drugstore without buying anything I had a look around the cheap drugstore brands' products and what you see above is what I ended up buying. :)

I still use my two Manhattan blushers (peach and violet), but as it is such an "every day" product I decided to pick these two up. The camera didn't pick up the colour of the "sweet rose" one very well. It's way lighter and rosé in real life. I'm actually dying to try these out, because they were such a bargain (like all things p2).

The product descriptions states the following about the product:

"Feathery-light blush enriched with minerals - the high content of biominerals has a soothing effect. Used to emphasize and accentuate your cheeks. Skin tolerance dermatologically confirmed."

The colours are quite shimmery which I'm not quite sure about, but I really wanted some orange-y tones, since I have light blue eyes and orange-y eyeshadow works great with it. Sadly, most brands don't really carry orange-tones at the moment.

Rival de Loop - Berlin High Gloss Nail Colour in 65 and 55

I'm terrible with nail polishes. I pick up new ones all the time. Usually I go for pink-ish colours and my pink nail polish collection is ridiculous. So, I decided to go for other colours this time. The RdL polishes are ridiculously cheap. I've already tried the turqouise-green-ish one which... I don't know, I think I have to get used to having such a colour on my nails. The consitency was quite nice, I thought it was a bit better than some of the p2 nail polishes.

I didn't take close-ups of the Rival de Loop Nagellack Schnelltrockner spray (spray that helps your nail polish to dry quicker), but I've already used it and it really works. I applied four coats of nail polish (lol) the other day (base coat - silver - glitter - top coat) and was in a hurry, so I sprayed my nails with it after every layer and it basically saved me from running super late. Yay!

The last thing I've picked up was the p2 Perfect Face! Anti-Red Base. I wanted to try a make up base for a long time, but the only one I came across was from L'Oreal and therefore quiet expensive. So I immediately jumped on the possibility to try out a much cheaper product. I haven't used it yet, but it's supposed to make your face look fresher and hide any redness.

I'm probably trying a lot of these products tomorrow and I'm honestly super excited to use them! :D


  1. Those nail polish colours look perfect for spring!

  2. I am in desperate need of some new things x

  3. You got great products! I love the eye shadows palette and I've been looking for a mint nail polish for ever
