Just a few things that I picked up on my last little trip to Boots. I have an ever growing list of beauty products I want to try that I have good things about from the YouTube videos that I watch and the blogs that I read. So this bit of shopping was basically to cross a few things off this list!
The first things that I picked up where the two L’Oreal eye shadows which I heard lots of good things about, especially from Amelia Liana. And they were on buy one get one half price which was a bonus! I already had a matte one of these which I love and use a lot so I decided to pick up the other textures they do. I picked up a nude one in 205 Sable Lame which is a gorgeous and very pigmented gold colour. I think this will look great it summer but also just looking at it reminds me of Christmas and New Year and all that good stuff so it will be perfect for winter parties too. I also picked up a lumiere shadow in 502 Quartz Fume which is a very shimmery dark browny bronze which looks gorgeous all over the lid or just for a bit of a smokey eye. So far I am just so impressed with both of these. I really want to try some more from this collection as they are just so beautiful and for the quality I think £5.50 is pretty reasonable.
The next thing that I picked up was this lip butter crayon from Collection. I spotted this in Zoella’s most recent makeup collection video and thought the colour looked really pretty. Collection is always really reasonable so this was only £3. I love how moisturising this is and even though the colour does come up quite a bit lighter than I had expected it’s still really pretty.
Finally I used up some of my Boots points to buy a new concealer. I’ve been using the Collection ones for a while now and even though they are really good I do find them to be a little bit drying under my eyes. This one is a lot more moisturing although I do find it to be a little bit thinner and I have to use two layers. But the colour 2 is perfect for me and I’ve really enjoyed using this.
Hope you like this little and not very interesting haul. I’m sorry that I haven’t been able to post this weekend really. It was my 18th birthday yesterday so I spent most of the weekend surrounded by friends and family. I had a really great time though and I was very lucky so hopefully I will share what I got up to very soon and maybe a few of my presents too! xx
