The Exclusive, Luxury Beauty Brand Only At Superdrug **

I was very kindly gifted these products by the Superdrug PR team a couple of weeks ago. It wasn't necessary for me to tell you about these products but it's the first time I've used this brand and wanted to share my thoughts with you all.

B. Cosmetics is a makeup and skincare brand exclusive to Superdrug and I've always fancied giving them a go but have never come around to buying any of their products. So when I received a package full of them, I was excited to get the stuff on my face!


What makes this brand even better is that they're vegan friendly - perfect for you vegetarians and vegans!

Due to my current skincare issues, I'm not wearing full faces of makeup so some of these products I am yet to try but I'm still going to talk about them a little. I am loving the products I have been using though, and some of them I will be buying again because I just love them that much.

The first couple of things I received were the B. Vitalised Vitamin Spritz and the B. Calm Camomile Spritz. I've been loving these two sprays and have been incorporating them into my daily skincare routine. I use the Vitalised Vitamin Spritz in the morning and the Calm Camomile Spritz in the evening.

I'll start off with the Vitalised Vitamin Spritz which includes caffeine, Vitamin E and cucumber juice. This smells gorgeous and makes your skin feel light and radiant when you use it. It's dermatology tested and is great for dull skin.

The Calm Camomile Spritz is made from rose, plum and chestnut herbal extracts with camomile too (how else would it get it's name?). Camomile is known for its soothing qualities, rose helps reduce redness (taken from experience) and I have no clue about the other two - all I know is that this is the BEST smelling thing I have ever smelt.

I'm using this more often in hope to reduce the harshness of my spots and acne scarring whilst also soothe my skin because lately it's been really irritated and sore (thanks to my cystic acne). This has helped a tonne, I've noticed an improvement in my skin's appearance and it's less irritated. I am using other products and am on medication for my acne but since using this, I have seen a big change.

The Calm Camomile Spritz is definitely one I will be purchasing over and over again.

Both the Vitalised Vitamin Spritz and the Calm Camomile Spritz cost £7.99 each (per 75ml) but they're currently on offer (*as of 13/8/2018) selling at £3.95 - remind me to go and get some ASAP.

Next, I got the B. Flawless Correcting Concealer Duo which is a green and lavender concealer which balances out undertones - great for acne and dark circles. I'm actually yet to use this which is strange because I'm all in with my green concealers and primers. I did test it out when I took the photos for this blog post - I popped it on top of the attempted washed off lipstick swatches and it seemed to hide them quite well. So despite not using this on my face yet, I am expecting good things from these concealers.

You can purchase this Flawless Correcting Concealer Duo for £6.99.

The Superdrug PR team then popped in a B. Pro Contour Kit in the shade Medium/Dark. I'm actually a secret fan of contour, I never think I am but I own so many that I can't keep up. I'm always on the lookout for a good, small kit and this is just that. You can buy this kit for £8.99.

The contour shade is perfect and blends really easily on the top of my foundation. It's subtle but noticeable and is by far, my favourite contour product yet. I'll definitely be buying this again. It's perfect too for traveling - I'll be taking it with me everywhere.

As for the highlighter, since this is the medium/dark shade, and I have quite fair skin, the highlighter doesn't do much. It's a great highlighter for someone with more tanned skin than me but I think I'll be sticking to my Revolution Pro Rose Gold palette.

The next product I got was the B. Lip & Cheek Tint in the shade Crimson Caress. I've not yet used this on my lips but I have used it on my cheeks and a blush. It's a non-oily formula with a creamy texture that's easily bendable.

I apply this with my fingers to my cheeks and pat it onto my face (sometimes rubbing can cause your base to move which we don't want). It blends really easily and gives a subtle tint to my cheeks. I'm actually finding this better than the powder blushes I so religiously have used in the past. The tint is not as pigmented which makes it easier to get an even tone and not look like you've just ran a marathon.

At £6.99 I'm not sure if I'd buy it again but I'm definitely going to look into more tints like this.

Moving onto the eyes, I've still not tried any of these products but I am looking forward to doing so. I was gifted the B. Glitter Pigment in the shade Indiego and the B. Pro Longwear Gel Liner in the shade Black.

The pigment looks great, I actually don't own anything glitter in my makeup collection so I'm excited to work with this. It's super pigmented and is a lovely shade. I'm not too sure if I have any other eyeshadows that will go well with this so I'll have to start experimenting. You can buy a single pigment from B. for £4.99.

I'm not a huge fan of eyeliner and I've never, ever tried a gel liner so I'm quite excited to give this a go. I'm so rubbish at eyeliner it's unreal. From a little swatch I did, it has a smooth and velvety texture which I can imagine is something everyone wants in a gel liner! You can buy this for £.6.99.

Next I got a B. Lip Liner in the shade Cerise which is super pigmented. You can buy the liner for £4.99. It's a bright pink colour and has a smooth texture to it. The liner is a non-drying matte shade and I'm sure I've got at least 3 lipsticks to match this shade which is great. I think I might need to de-clutter my makeup thinking about it now!

I then got two lipsticks in two different shades of red. Both of which cost £6.99 and I'm in love with them.

The B. Matte Lipstick in the shade Risky Business is one I am yet to try since it's so bright. I'm a huge fan of these bright red shades though, I think that they are so underrated. The texture of this is gorgeous and smooth. I did try this on my lips before deciding against it and tried to rub it off - which let me tell you, it was hard. It's really pigmented and leaves a tint when you try and wash it away, quite a nice tint actually.

I then received the B. Matte Lipstick in the shade Virtuous which is more of a wine shade and I really really love this colour. It's not too red or too purple toned either. I've been on the lookout for the perfect wine shade for my whole life and I have finally found it!

I have tried this lipstick and it lasted for a few hours before I started eating and drinking and then it started to dry up a little bit but the colour did not budge one bit. I'm super impressed with the performance of this lipstick and am fully considering buying more of them.

Finally, I also was sent two little face mask pods which I've not used yet. I might do today actually thinking about it.

The B. Glowing Clay Mask is meant to illuminate the skin tone and give a healthier complexion. Included in the mask is finely grounded apricot granules that remove dry, dead skin cells - smoothing the skins texture. It also contains three different clays with red seaweed extract in order to eliminate impurities and soften the skin.

The B. Hydrating Leave On Mask boosts the skin hydration with Hyaluronic acid that locks in moisture. It also contains Squalane (a hydrocarbon) and Babussu Oil for skin smoothing, they help the appearance of dry and flakey skin.

They both come in a 10ml round packaging which is perfect for one use. I find with the packets of face masks that you can gat a couple of uses out of them but end up throwing the rest away after the first use. I love the little pod idea!

These cost £2.99 each, which is a little on the expensive side, but they're currently (*as of 13/8/2018) £1.45!

I'm really excited to try the products I am yet to try since they all look and sound pretty good to me! I'm definitely going to be trying out more of B.'s products.

Have you tried B. Cosmetics yet?

Until next time...
