Payday arrived and i’ll be honest in the words of Amelia Liana I was #feelingspendy! It’s not hard to pick up a basket in Boots, fill it within seconds and leave the store with both a large bag with the contents adding up to over £50 and your hands covered in lipstick swatches! So today, I’m going to quickly share with you the contents of my Boots bag!
After smelling every body wash from Soap & Glory and being disappointed with the scent of their new Orangeasm range, I decided to pick up a couple of the new Imperial leather foamburst body washes. No doubt I was very curious about these body washes, which claim to 'smooth gel into an abundance of rich, creamy lather that glides across your skin like silk’ and they have both been in my shower since and I must admit they are pretty nice! Will have a full review for you soon.
I have become a little lazy recently in terms of hair care and have been slacking on the old hair washing routine. Although I do like Batiste Dry Shampoo, my scalp doesn’t, so I wanted to try something else. As a huge fan of CW Hair Care, I thought I would try their dry shampoo and once again like the majority of their products, it smells good! I have used this product a couple of times and I quite like it!
I bought this brow gel recently and really enjoyed using it and then the next thing I knew I had lost it (how does one loose makeup?!). Maybelline had a 3 for 2 promotion and I couldn’t resist and had to repurchase it. I bought the shade medium brown and love using it on lazy days, where I simply cannot be asked to fill my brows in properly, with a wax and powder. It’s basically a mascara for your brows with a ball brush. Its quick, long lasting and gives a natural finish - although FYI if you apply too much, it can go a little crispy!
I have been watching a of a lot of youTube recently (maybe a tad too much!) and this concealer keeps cropping up everywhere and was one of the products I actually went into Boots with the intention of buying! This concealer claims to ‘erase dark circles, puffiness and fine lines instantly’ all whilst caring for the eye area as it’s enriched with Goji Berry. Im not 100% keen on the sponge applicator, but hopefully the product will be so good I can look past that!
This mascara is a cult favourite of mine and as my current one was looking a little worse for wear, it went without saying that I needed to pick up a new one. You can read my review on this mascara here.
This wasn’t an intentional purchase (but then again where any of these products?!). After watching a recent youTube video where Lilly Pebbles said this was her favourite bronzer, I couldn’t not pick it up especially as Boots are currently offering buy 1 get 1 half price on Soap & Glory products. This bronzer is a 'Multi-Shade Shimmering Bronzer / Highlighter Brick for beautifully luminous skin’ and I’m looking forward to giving it a go.
With summer slowly creeping up on us, I decided I was in need of a new translucent setting powder as recently my nose has been looking a little shiny. This powder compact (claims to) 'offer world-class shine control and oil-absorption’ whilst being 'ultra-light, and give the skin a traceless, smooth, velvety finish’. Im looking forward to giving it a go, especially after hearing so much about it. The powder comes with a little round sponge applicator, but I doubt I will use it. I was thinking instead about purchasing one of the new Real Techniques retractable brushes so I can use it on the go, watcha think?
I rarely go a day without wearing a feline flick and I have been loving experimenting with new eyeliners, so when I spotted this eyeliner hiding in the Maybelline display, I was very curious about the silicon-tip applicator and the fact it is gel, so I had to pop it into my basket. It claims to give intense colour in just one click and last for 48hrs and it can only be removed with waterproof makeup remover (which is a little frustrating, but we will see!).
