Boots Haul

Yesterday I went to boots and although I only went in for a few things I got more than I planned and spent more than I should have.

Todays buys

First off I headed for Barry M to get a Gelly nail paint as you lovely people had all raved about it as did many other beauty people online. When I got there they were on buy one get one half price so of course I bought two. I bought 319-pomegranate and 327-dragon, which I think is a rather odd name but the colour is lovely so I went for it.

The pomegranate one is quite self explanatory as it is a dark pink near red colour. Dragon however is not; I would say it is a candy pink/light barbie pink type colour.  

Next up I went to the Maybelline section and bought my fit me concealer in shade 10, this is the third one I have bought and I love it as much now as I did when I bought the first one. 

I also bought Maybellines Dream Touch Blush in shade 02. I went for this as I already have quite red checks so I just wanted something to even it out. 

Then I caught a glimpse on the Maxfactor products and bought there powder in shade 05, translucent which I have used ever since I started wearing makeup and I was running low on. Its great to stop the horrible shine from concealer and foundation and gives a natural, lasting coverage.  

Sorry, what ever I tried I couldn't get it without the horrible
reflection with my basic camera.

Then Rimmel's bronzing powder looked quite nice so I thought I would give it a go as I have never really used a bronzer.

I then went on the look for a new makeup remover and came across this 2in1 from Garnier which claims to remove makeup and also target imperfections.

And then I walked past the Real Technique brushes. As always, I tried not to look but when I saw they were on buy one get one half price meaning I would save £11, they jumped into my shopping basket and never looked back. I wanted the core collection and planned to hold off until christmas when I knew I could ask for them or spend christmas money on and then at some other point save up for the starter set. 

As you can see in the picture I quickly tried some of the core collection brushes and I can't wait to give them all a go now. 

I'm planning to do a Real techniques review in the next few weeks once I have given them all a fair try.

Have you bought any beauty items recently? Let me know in the comments.

  1. Hey!
    I LOVE the Real Techniques brushes! They're up there with my other favorites, MAC and Sigma!

    I recently just got the Rimmel bronzer and really like it. I use it as a bronzer and not for conturing because it has shimmer and I like a matte bronzer!!

    Your blogs awesome!
