Luckily one content creator has already tested out Superdrug's new makeup range – and some products are perfect for those glam nights out. 



Alicia, known online as @makeupbyaliciall, regularly shares makeup tips with her 23,000 followers. 

In one of her recent videos, the beauty fan shares her first impressions of Superdrug’s new makeup range, Studio London Cosmetics.

With most of the products under £5, Alicia wasn’t sure what to expect – but was pleasantly surprised by the results. 

“So Superdrug has launched their own brand called Studio London, where the majority of products are under £5, so we’ve got a load of products here and I thought we could try them out together.

Alicia loved the cream bronzer and explained to her followers that the lightweight formula blended in really easily. 

“Okay so next is bronzer, and we’ve got this cream bronzer in shade two. I do also have shade three as well, but I think that’s going to be way too warm. 

“I’m just going to go in with my finger and warm this product up. 

“That feels really lightweight. Pop it on my face and then we’ll blend in with a brush. 

“Okay that is blending so, so easily and quickly, and we’ve still got the coverage and the colour we want. That is lovely. 

“That blended out beautifully, like so naturally as well. So far, again, very impressed with that. 

“That’s like the perfect bronzing colour as well. I’m very happy with that. 

“This is the cream bronzer blended out and I’ve got to say, that’s one of the most beautiful cream bronzers I’ve ever used. It’s so lightweight, just like the foundation, it’s absolutely beautiful on the skin and feels so lovely. 

“Blends like a dream, the colour’s beautiful, yeah, I’m really really impressed with it.” 

Shoppers can get the range online and in-store, with prices starting at just £3. 

Fans loved Alicia’s honest review, with the video gaining more than 118,000 views.
