One of my favourite places to shop on the high street has to be Boots. I always go in there for one thing and come out with ten! This week I went in for a nail varnish and then spied lots of other offers and new bits I wanted to try.
While looking for my perfect shade of nail varnish I passed by the make up brushes section and as always there was a great offer on Real Techniques. I said in a previous post I wanted to try an eye shadow brush so decided I would go for it and got the shading brush, which I have since found out is the perfect size for applying shadow to my crease. Result! I also decided to get a new beauty blender as my old one is on its last legs and when I got the new one out of the packaging I realised how disgusting the old one actually was!
On the way to the make up section I then had to pass the hair products and saw a Babyliss teasing brush that I hadn’t noticed before. I have been fed up of my hair going flat too quickly recently so decided to invest. Best decision ever! I used it for the first time yesterday and my hair is still nice and big this morning.
I finally managed to get to the make up counters and saw some of the new Collection Lasting Gel colours. After being slightly disappointed with the Barry M gelly chipping quite quickly I thought I would give these a go and see how it compared. Shade wise I was looking for something festive so went for the Vixen Red (3) and Goldfinger (16) and I have not been disappointed with the result. I think the gold is a winner for me so let’s hope they last! I have used my Save the Nail top coat again so if this polish chips it may be time to try another top coat. It was spend £5 and get a free lip butter so got the lip butter in Cappuccino to try.
Once I got to the till I got a voucher for a free Benefit primer. I love Porefessional so got very excited but once I got to the counter I was told they had run out. Boo 🙁 I have two already so can’t complain too much but it always nice to get something free.
