Boots "haul"...

Monday, 21 February 2011



There are so many 3 for 2 offers on, or 3 for £5 from certain ranges I was in heaven when I "popped" in yesterday.

Here is what I got...

No7 - 3 for 2

Hot Cloth Cleanser - £9 (free with offer)
I've seen this one and the Liz Earl one a lot on the blogs I read and being as this was in the offer I thought I would try it. Have used it just now and after its first use I am feeling pretty good about it so we will see how my skin is after a couple of weeks.

Colour Calmer Primer - £11
I tend to get very red cheeks (I sometimes resemble a tomato. Its not good.) and my friend who is a MUA recommended I use a green primer to balance the redness. She recommended this one and oh look its on a 3 for 2 offer ;)

LE Lipstick - Bridgette - £10
So I then had a free product to pick and after toying with the idea of a mineral blush the spring goody stand caught my eyes..there was only two left of these so after trying the tester the lipstick was very quickly in my basket.

17 - 3 for 2

Mirror Shine Lipstick - Beehive - £4.59
I have a new love for lipsticks and really fancied this colour after seeing a lot of good things about it. Its very creamy and light but buildable nude colour.

Strengthening Base Coat - £3.99 (free with offer)
Needed a new base coat and heard good things, there was an offer on so I bought it. Simples.

Mirror Shine Lipstick - Belle - £4.59
A more pinky version of beehive. Couldn't resist.

Botanics - 3 for 2

Eyemakeup Remover (x2) - £3.05 - one free with offer
I love this eyemakeup remover and won't be buying a different one ever. It removes the most stubborn eyemakeup but is so gentle. I stocked up on the offer so now have a backup after using up my first bottle of it.

Body Balm - £3.17
Currently using vaseline moisture locking body lotion and I love it, but it wasn't on picked this one up to try as I have almost run out of the vaseline. 

Natural Collection - 3 products for £5

Waterguard Mascara - £1.99 individually
I always keep a waterproof mascara around, even if it is not the most expensive, as this is less than £2 I thought I would give it a whirl. Wearing a waterproof mascara everyday annoys me a little as I have about 7 mascaras on the go for different types of eyelash looks. This has had some good reviews so hopefully I will think the same.

Blush - Pink cloud - £1.99 individually
I always tend to head for bronzer but want to start using blush a bit more. Since I won one as part of a massive competition win from peacocks that looks like the benefit blushers I have wanted to expand my collection and for the price of these I can gradually start my collection without breaking the bank.

Lipstick - Rose Petal - £1.99 individually
This little gem caught my eye as I was looking for my 3rd item, its a nice peachy shimmery colour so *poof* was in my basket.

And the good old trusty nail varnish remover. I get so bored with my nail colours that I use bottle of this like there is no tomorrow - £1.03 

I will swatch and review products as I use them and then post them up. Have any of you used them before?

As I seem to be loving lipsticks at the moment does anyone have any favourite lipsticks they would care to share? Would love to have a nose at them!

Hope everyone is well...



  1. My mum has good skin. So I just briefly took one of her SKII to use, which I assume is a moisturizer. It's good man I tell you! She gave me a small bottle of eye cream before but the effects weren't that great and I stopped using. But my mum's eye cream is good! I can feel it reacting once I applied it

  2. You've made me want to hit boots and shop.

    Good job I have no money. lol
