Everyone loves a good Boots haul, it’s one of THE go to places for peeps in the UK to pick up their makeup from. I also had 2 of those classic vouchers for money off at No7 and there was also a sale on in my local Boots… so I obviously had to pick up a few bits!
The Sale Items
Rimmel ‘I Love Lasting Finish’ Nail Varnish – This nail varnish is usually £2.99, which is a pretty standard price for a drugstore nail varnish, but I picked it up in the sale for £1. BARGAIN. I got it in the shade ‘502 Hot Tropicana’ and it’s this bright, hot-pink, and it’s absolutely gorgeous. I’ve never used this range of nail polish before, and so for £1 I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to try them out.
Collection 2in1 Top Coat – This is also normally £2.99 and I picked it up for £1. I still have my Barry M 2in1 Topcoat, which I absolutely love, but, to be honest, a top coat is a top coat, they don’t vary hugely between drugstore brands. So, when I saw this for only £1, I picked it up because I get through clear nail varnish fairly quickly.
Bourjois Volume Clubbing Mascara – This is usually £7.99, which is a fairly decent price for a drugstore mascara, and it claims to stay in place even when you’re getting hot and sweaty, like you would when you were clubbing. I picked this up in a sort of spur of the moment thing because it was in the sale for £1. It is in the colour brown, and I don’t own a brown mascara and so I thought I should probs give it a go. However I find the formula really sticky, and the applicator really strange, and so I don’t know how often I will use this. A review might be coming later it ends up growing on me, or not.
Collection BB Secret Beauty Balm – This product is usually £5.99, but this was only £1!! It’s in the perfect shade for me (light), and it provides the perfect light coverage for summer, and it makes my skin feel really soft. The SPF 15 is also ideal for the summer to protect my face against the sun. I am so happy I found this and picked it up, and when this runs out I may even repurchase this in the future at full price!
No7 Soft and Soothed Gentle Toner – This is £8 currently in Boots, but I had a £5 off No7 skincare voucher and really needed some more makeup remover and so decided to pick this up. It’s really good at removing face makeup and makes my face feel fresh. However, it is terrible at taking off eye makeup, which may be because No7 do a separate eye makeup remover, but I like my makeup remover/toner to do both, so, not sure I’ll be repurchasing this.
No7 Stay Perfect Eye Pencil – I picked up an unusual shade of eyeliner this time, picking up the shade ‘Bronze’, which, as the name suggests, is a bronzy toned eyeliner. It was £7.50, but I had a £3 off voucher. I really like this, the texture and staying power as well as the colour pigmentation of this is really nice and I think I’ll be picking up some of the other colours in the future.
No7 Precision Lip Pencil – This lip pencil is only £6.75, and I also had £3 off this, and it is incredible. There are loads of shades, but I picked up the shade ‘Soft Blush’, which is a nudy-pink colour. I love the fact it’s not a pencil so you don’t have to sharpen it, and it really prolongs your lipstick as well as making my lips look fuller. This is now my favourite lip pencil and I am really intending to pick up some more!
Rimmel Stay Matt Pressed Powder – Yes, I know, how the hell do I not have this yet?! but I’ve been absolutely loving my Bourjois Healthy Balance Powder and reluctant to move on. But, everyone has been raving about this for AGES, and so I went and picked up the shade ‘translucent’. It was only £3.99, and so really cheap, and for the price you pay for it, it is flawless.
Maybelline Colour Tattoo 24 Hours – I already own two of these and absolutely love them, and so I picked up another shade, ‘Metallic Pomegranate’, which is a metallic red/burgandy colour. It’s absolutely gorgeous, and another great addition to my makeup collection.
I love going to Boots and looking at all their items, and if you pick up their magazine that comes out every other month you can pick up some great vouchers in their for extra points/money off, and the Boots near me was having a great little sale on, which.. I can’t resist a sale! I hope it was helpful seeing what I bought!
