Makeup Academy – The £1 makeup range launching at Superdrug

Posted by Lipglossiping On April - 16 - 2010

Touted as the best priced cosmetics collection available in the country, Makeup Academy is set to launch exclusively at Superdrug this month!

The range includes lipsticks, glosses, eyeshadows, mascaras, eye liners, blush, powder and nail polish in shades from neutrals to brights and every shade in between.

I’m really excited to head down to Superdrug and pick some bits up… anything in the promo images caught your eye?

    Ooo. Thanks for the heads up (sp?) My eye instantly got caught up by the purple tube (5th item from the left, on picture no.1) hoping this would be a bright purple gel eyeliner and I am already having high expectations of it. hahaha. And I also like the look of the same looking tube in light gold and dark gold. I hope this brand won’t finish like the playbox cosmetics rack at tj hughes (shambolic disgrace would be the word) but I can already predict this to be ravaged by teens and their hands full of fingers on them.

    On this topic, would love to hear everyone’s recommendations on which superdrug store tends to be better kept than others. I’ve found personally that the main superdrug in Preston is pretty much immaculately kept at all times. The one in Manchester Piccadilly, on the other hands has let me down countless times.

    I’m so intersted about this collection but I think there’s no way to purchase it for us italian customers :(

  5. Jane says:

    i think it’s good having super cheap things but the packaging just looks really horrible:( i care a lot about packaging:S

    think i’ll try some of the nail colours all the same though:) x

    Caro xxx

  8. KT says:

    Wow! This looks like a classier higher quality version of ELF. ope it works out well. Can’t wait to hear if its going to live up to my expectations!

  9. RaeRae says:

    I’m really excited to try this stuff out! I want to see how good the quality is for £1.

    I can finally add to my collection and not feel too guilty. Happy addict.

  10. Hendrix says:

    AHH, is that bright purple lipgloss? Alas, no Superdrugs in the States!

  11. Ashwini says:

    The two neutral e/s have caught my eye. This looks brilliant!

  12. Part of me wonders how it can possibly be any good at that price, but the magpie for bright colours that I am, and the budget I have to work on, I’m there already!!!

    What strikes me most of all is how much more attractive this range looks than the promo’s I’ve seen of the new Top Shop range.

  13. Holly says:

    The neutrals look lovely and some of the nail colours look interesting, But for £1 you can’t really go wrong! Will definitely be checking out the range!

  14. All the Brights. Now I’m feeling sad I’m not in the UK no easy access to the line. :-)

  15. Rebecca says:

    nail polish for £1!?! I may have to get a few 😀

  16. natalie says:

    does anyone know where i can get full range including display stands etc for my beauty salon… HELP.. i cant seem to find out anywhere!!! its excellent range

  17. Wordbird says:

    I’m loving the metallic green nail varnish and the single eyeshadows – I bought a black one and it’s an excellent eyeliner – very good pigment and not as much ‘drop’ as the sleek ones. So I’ve gone back for a dark purple and a dark green and they’re working well too. I find it good quality for the price.
