Ahh Boots 3 for 2, why do you do this to me? Honestly, you guys I needed ALL of this. I swear. There’s quite a good mix of makeup, skincare and body…care here which is always what a good Boots trip is about.
I mentioned in my latest video that I had been told to buy the Soap & Glory One Heck Of A Blot Powder (£12) for some time, even my own readers were commenting saying that they thought I would love it (maybe you guys are the influential ones after all?) so naturally, it went in my basket quicker than I could say “bankrupt”. So far, I’m pretty keen on it. It applies beautifully and doesn’t do anything in terms of adding coverage or colour so makeup still looks the same, but all shine is gone and makeup looks far more fresh – all without the chalky feeling.
I also have been trialling the Bourjois CC Eye Cream Concealer (£7.99) which is lovely stuff. It’s very light but also creamy, so it blends easily and doesn’t settle in to creases. It also seems to set in place which means there’s no budging throughout the day. I’ve only been using it a week or so but so far, so good. Bourjois have been killing it with their releases lately!
Another brand that never fail to please me is Revlon, I got my hands on this Colourburst Lacquer Balm in Demure (£7.99) and it’s pretty much all I’ve been wearing. I love these wearable pinky nudes, they look really lovely on and they’re so great for slicking on throughout the day. The quality is great, the glossy finish is perfect and the colour is just gorgeous – it looks a little like my natural lip colour but much prettier and it has a subtle shimmer. Me love.
I have been swooning over this L’Oreal Miss Manga Mascara (£8.99) lately – my first mascara purchase in what feels like forever! It’s so good to find an affordable everyday mascara that still offers a massive boost to lashes. This stuff really coats every lash for defined eyes, it’s one impressive offering lemme tell you. The brush is also great for fanning the lashes, which I think makes all the difference.
I mentioned on Instagram recently that I’ve been loving these Super Facialist Vitamin C+ Overnight Repair Radiance Capsules (£21.99) – and not just for the novelty value either. They look super cute, and they really smooth my skin and help to brighten my complexion too. All you need to do is rip open the little pod, squeeze out the contents and apply to skin – they only have a small amount in there but I find it’s enough. I’ve been using them every evening lately and I’ve already seen a difference. Great for travelling too.
Lastly, I received this Nivea In Shower Body Moisturiser (£3.56) recently and I already love it. My skin gets quite dry but I rarely stop and actually go to town on the body lotion, so this wonder will come in handy for my lazy self. The idea is to work it in after using shower gel, like the conditioner to your shampoo. It always leaves my skin feeling so smooth and soft, and it’s a pretty reasonable buy! I expect dry winter skin will be a thing of the past in no time.
Have you tried any of these?
