Before we head off to Center Parcs for the week, I popped into Boots today to stock up on some essentials and some not-so-essential-but-still-really-lush beauty bits!
Ever since I gave the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer a go I’ve never used anything else to cover up my problem areas and under-eye area. I find nothing else conceals as well as this and I always opt for the lightest shade, 01 Fair, to give my under-eye area a lift and make it appear brighter. This concealer is also perfect for covering up those nasty zits that tend to spring up out of nowhere although I tend to find it can require a little pat from a finger-tip to really melt it into the skin for a natural finish.
Along with the concealer, I picked up another favourite of mine; Collection Lasting Perfection Ultimate Wear Powder. This product teamed with the concealer really do make the perfect power couple. After I’ve used the concealer I whack some of this over the top – I use a powder brush and forgo the use of the pad/sponge that comes with this powder because I have a weird thing about bacteria/germs lingering on those things – and it sets everything perfectly!
While I was in Boots I also couldn’t resist picking up a few coral/red/pinkish lipsticks. I’ve been after some lippys with more orange tones so I grabbed these three beauts – it’s just a big coincidence that all of these products are from Collection but it makes for a consistent post fo’ sho!
The lovely lipsticks are in the shades 16 Paper Rose, 17 Colour Pop and 2 Pretty In Peach and they’re all quite similar with only very slight differences but I’m very excited to give them a go nonetheless! They were also on offer in Boots for only £2.50 each so I couldn’t resist, I’m a bit of a lipstick hoarder – there’s just something about lipsticks that are so aesthetically pleasing to me I don’t know why I’m a weirdo – so I’m definitely thinking of getting a few more shades in this range if they stay at this price!
There are so many fantastic offers on at Boots at the moment and all of the Christmas boxsets and offers are in store already so if you live near a store then I’d recommend popping in for a gander.
