Whenever I spot the bargain bucket in a store, I always at as cool as possible, as if I’m not bovvered, then slowly, whilst no one is looking at me, slip over to the bucket for a quick rummage.
I did this in my local Superdrug recently where they had a mixture of Eyeko, Taxi London and Playboy cosmetics. Those counters had largely disappeared in this branch of Superdrug so I am guessing that they were getting rid of unwanted stock.
Taxi London caught my eye. I have never tried the range before – judging by their website, they are more famous for their concealer of men.
I bought 10 things at £1 each – so I spent just £10! The thing I focused on was their City Lights lip glosses – these are similar to the NEW ID cosmetics lip glosses – they light up and have a mirror on the side.
I also LOVE sparkly glosses.
I’m not sure if I will keep all of these or if I will give some away so I only opened one that I definitely want to keep – Crystal Palace which is a sheer green-yellow:
I also bought two of the standard lip glosses in a sheer pink and a bronze gold:
The light up element:
Its a very blue light it omits but its useful if you apply your lip gloss…in the dark. As you do. Don’t want to scare those ghosts.
Swatches (I also bought three lipsticks):
I noticed Taxi London is still in one of the other stores near me but checking their site, there’s no evidence of these products so they must be discontinued.
The lipsticks are average, the lip glosses are average too. The City Lights glosses are great though, a lot of fun to use and lovely and sparkly.
