Hello my lovelies
To me there is nothing better than walking around Boots and finding new products. I could quite happily spending hours walking up and down every single aisle and seeing what takes my fancy and having a look at what brands have brought out recently. I have been on a bit of a spending ban recently so I haven’t posted my standard monthly buys post because I haven’t been buying much recently.
I know I’m shocked in myself that I haven’t been shopping in a while, but I am saving myself for my trip to Paris in September so I can visit Sephora. I have never been to one of their stores before so I am extremely excited! However I was going stir crazy recently that I hadn’t picked any new products up recently and I thought to myself go and treat yourself – I didn’t need much persuading!
Collection – Contour Kit see here
I have wanted to pick this up for the longest time but for some reason it has never made my basket before. I am really getting into contouring and annoyingly most of my favourite contouring products are high end, I thought to myself surely I can find a drug store equivalent. I am hoping this will be the one, I am not 100% convinced with the highlight shade but the contour shade looks pretty good to me. I am sure I will post a review soon on my thoughts so keep your eyes peeled!
L’Oreal – Lip Paint Nude-Ist (212) see here
Liquid lipsticks are my thing. I have an awful lot, I just love them. I do feel that it is hard to get a liquid lipstick right I have tried quite a few that are not great but also a whole load that I absolutely adore. I saw recently L’Oreal brought out their own version and I just thought it was rude not to try it out. Although it is a brown lipstick, which I have a lot of this shade is completely different to anything I own. I would say that it is a purple toned brown, it’s quite beautiful. I am beyond excited to try this out and whether it lives up to my high expectations..
Rimmel – Stay Matte Liquid Lip Colour in 800 Midnight & 830 Blue Iris see here
So Rimmel have also joined the band wagon on liquid lipsticks and I thought it would be rude not to try them out. I mean for whatever reason I have gone for two colours that are more autumn/winter appropriate but I am sure I will be pulling them off all year round. I am trying to get into this whole blue lip thing, I am a little nervous but I really think it looks so good and I always say to myself you have to go out of your comfort zone every once in a while so that’s exactly what I am going to do. Their shade range is actually pretty impressive for a recent launch I really think there is a shade for everyone. Also with Rita Ora fronting the campaign I couldn’t not refuse!
Collection – Lasting Perfection Concealer in Cool Medium see here
This is a cult item for me, I can’t live without it. It’s THE best concealer on the market and I cannot be without it. I always have a backup of this and every time I am in Boots I pick it up for the price you really cannot go wrong. For anyone that hasn’t tried this little beauty out yet – WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN!? Go try it, it will change your life and also cover up everything you need to.
L’Oreal – Infallible Mattifying Base see here
I have had this in the past and I love it, it really is an amazing primer and for whatever reason I stopped buying it. When I was in Boots and I saw it I just knew I needed to pick it up. Especially as unfortunately my skin is now quite oily a matte base is exactly what I need and great for oil control. I really hope when I try it again I will love it as much as I used to!
Soap & Glory – Peaches & clean Deep Cleansing Milk see here
This now my third bottle of this stuff, I blooming love it! It really is so impressive, it does exactly what it says on the tin and I don’t really have anything negative to say about it. I have a full review of this stuff here if you are thinking of picking up this may help. I always have to have a bottle of this stuff in my collection because I know I can always rely on this little baby doing what I need it to do. I don’t think it will ever rival my Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish but it is sitting at my number 2 spot. Not bad for a cleanser that costs £8!
L’Oreal – Mega Volume Miss Baby Roll Mascara see here
I don’t own many L’Oreal Mascaras, for whatever reason a lot of them don’t agree with my lashes. My favourite is the Miss Manga it’s pretty damn amazing especially if you are needing a high impact mascara which is what I love. When I saw they brought this one out I thought it would be rude not to give it a go. I mean the packaging is so cute, I was sold as soon as I saw it. I really hope I enjoy it as much as my Miss Manga, don’t you worry once I have had a little play around with this I will be sure to post my thoughts.
Garnier – Micellar Cleansing Water see here
This stuff is AMAZING. It is seriously the BEST micellar water I have ever tried and I refuse to buy anything else. I have gone through countless bottles and long may this continue, I love that this year they have brought out a bigger bottle as it lasts so much longer and better value for money. As my current one was beginning to run out I knew it was time to get a new one so I won’t be without it. Honestly if you have never tried this, please I beg you go try it out I promise you won’t be disappointed!
Soap & Glory – Pore Refining Mask see here
These are new to the scene from Soap and Glory and I am so blooming excited to try this out. I seriously need all the help I can get when it comes to reducing the size of my pores. I have tried a lot of different masks and nothing seems to of really made a difference. I am hoping that this will actually do something because to me at £3.50 a pop this is quite expensive! I also have never used a sheet mask before so this will be a complete new experience for me. Don’t you worry guys I will report back on my findings soon.
Soap & Glory – Vitamin C Facial Wash see here
Last but by no means least another Soap and Glory product. They had buy one get one half price on and I thought it would be rude not to take advantage of this. This is another product from them I have never tried before and I am quite looking forward to trying this out. For a face wash it looks quite interesting and I am all up for trying new things. It says it smooths, cleans and purifies – these are pretty big statements and I will be sure to let you know if this is the case or not. For me this is quite an expensive facial wash at £8 but if it does what it is claiming then I will be impressed..
That’s all folks! Let me know if you have tried any of these products out yourself and what your thoughts are on them, I’d love to know!
