New finds at Superdrug

I spotted some new products that I hadn't heard about before on a trip to Superdrug a few days ago so I obviously had to pick them up! 

Rimmel have recently changed their Lasting Finish foundations so it looks like they have released a primer and concealer to go with them.

The Lasting Finish Skin Perfecting Primer claims to extend wear of foundation for up to 8 hours as well as minimising the look of pores, evening skin tone and providing endless comfort. I would describe this as a thick white lotion that has a smoothing feeling on the skin. It doesn't feel like silicone, it's more like a moisturiser. I really like the feeling of this. I have tried it once on my face and I did feel like my foundation went on a lot smoother. I need to try this more before I can develop more of an opinion on it though.

I was excited by the Lasting Finish Concealer as it felt so creamy when I swatched it. I bought the shade Porcelain which is quite a good match for my skin tone, maybe slightly darker but blends out fine. It can be used for covering dark circles, redness and blemishes. As with the primer, I've tried this once and found it to work quite well at covering those flaws but I'm still trying to work out whether it's best with a brush or fingers. I'm kind of thinking a combination of both! I did find it a little drying but I am suffering with super dry skin at the moment so I'm not blaming the concealer just yet!

I've developed a bit of an interest in the L'Oreal Color Riche Lipsticks lately after adding a few to my collection so I was really excited when I saw they had expanded their shade range and even included a few matte shades! My photo really isn't doing the shades any justice. They are much better in real life. Flamingo (136) is a gorgeous pinky nude shade in the original formula, VIP (228) is a gorgeous matte red that isn't as bright and dark as it looks in my photo. (You can probably see the colours better in my Instagram photo here!) Finally I picked up the other matte called Androgyne (130) a dusky rose shade. 

My most exciting find of the day was the Bourjois Rouge Edition Aqua Laque collection! After the success of their Velvet ones they must have decided to bring out a glossy version. There were 6 shades to choose from and I chose the more muted shades. They had some gorgeous bold red and pink shades too though. Looking on the Superdrug website has revealed a further 2 shades so it appears there are actually 8 shades!

01 Appechissant is a deep dusky pink, 02 Rose on the rocks is a lighter rosy pink and 03 Babe idole is a brigher, more coral toned pink. They are all really pretty and have a good amount of pigmentation.

What do you think of my new finds?
Are you planning to purchase any of these?
