As soon as payday comes around, so does an obligatory Boots haul. Mainly to replenish those necessary empties but also to take a good old look around and see what’s new!
I already own a couple of the brushes in this Real Techniques Foundation/Base Core Collection, £21.99 set but I thought it would be nice to a) have duplicates for the brushes I already have, in case one set needs cleaning super urgently I can switch them out, and b) use a couple of brushes that I’ve never tried before, like the smaller detailing brush and the contouring brush.
These Yes To Cucumbers Soothing Facial Wipes, £2.65 have been on my shopping list for a long time and they were on offer today in Boots so it seemed like the perfect time. I have skin which is super-sensitive to harsh facial wipes and I usually always go for a wipe that includes cucumber as it’s such a soothing ingredient. These wipes include not only cucumber but also aloe vera; the dream team!
This trio of beauty products includes one that I love, the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer, £4.19 and also a couple of new buys. I have very dry skin so I’ve always been wary of powders as I don’t want to invite any cakey-ness onto my face where it’s not welcome, this Rimmel Stay Matte Powder, £1.99 looked super-lightweight and I’m excited to give it a try.
I also really liked the look of Maybelline’s Dream Bronze BB cream, £6.99. As the weather gets warmer, I like to wear less and less in the form of foundation so this bronzed BB cream fitted the bill perfectly. It also contains SPF 25 which is a huge bonus, I’ll let you know how I get on with this BB during the week.
The new nude lipstick collection from Kate Moss for Rimmel, £5.49 have been all over the blogosphere lately so when I spied them in Boots today I just couldn’t resist choosing a shade to take home. I opted for shade 45 which is a beautiful brown-based nude with a hint of pink (so don’t worry, it won’t look like you’ve got foundation on your lips). I’ll be reviewing this product in full very soon so keep an eye out for that post.
Finally, I picked up this John Frieda Frizz Ease Secret Agent Touch-Up Creme, £4.00. I’ve been using Bleach London’s Split Fix Serum to control my flyaways and to smooth out my ends for a long time now but as they were out of that in the store today I took the opportunity to look for something new to try out. I found this product and it looked like it would do the trick.
Full reviews for these products will be on the way once I’ve given them go so make sure you’re following me on Bloglovin or Twitter for all of the updates.
