I live within a mile from a Boots store, which of course is a terrible idea for a shopping addict really. How will my bank balance ever recover if i'm always within walking distance of a lot of make up? Couple this with the fact i haven't bought any new make up in over 4 weeks means i was going to break sooner rather than later.
I headed into Boots to pick up some of the 'boring'/ordinary bits we use everyday and since there were a lot of offers on instore, i thought i might aswell treat myself to one or two bits!
I had to pick up some shampoo and conditioner as my usual one's were empty (they were in my Empties post here). I Love the L'Oreal Elvive range in general, all the one's i've tried have been fantastic for my hair so while NutriGloss is my absoloute favourite, i thought i'd go with another variety. I ended up with the Full Restore5 as it's another one i really like and it helps with damaged hair. There was also 10% off shampoo or conditioner! As it was on 3 for 2 i also picked up the Conditioning Repairing Leave in Spray, which i hadn't tried yet! Another ordinary item i needed to get was a shower gel, so i picked up the Original Source Lime gel (which is my second favourite shower gel) as it was on offer for £1.
Now, onto the make up! As i'm trying to buy more eye or lip products as i have much too many blushes/bronzers/concealers/foundations you name it, i've banned myself from buying any face make up (unless it's to replace something that's run out!). In the end i picked up one of the new L'Oreal Color Riche Collection Privée lipsticks in 'Hint of Pink'. I'm pretty excited to try this as they claim to be the perfect nude lipsticks! As there was a buy-one-get-one-half-price offer on, i also bought the Bourjois Color Boost lipstick in 'Peach on the Beach' which i've just heard so many people say nice things about and after swatching it in the shop, it is a gorgeous colour!
I also picked up two Collection products too, as i love their lasting perfection concealer, i thought i'd try some more of their products. I picked up the Eyeshadow Pencil in 'Vanilla Sky' as it's such a gorgeous champagne colour and after reading how much everyone loved them, i felt like i needed my own! I also grabbed a lipstick, which is something u'd never tried from Collection before. I got the Shade '8 Cherry Pop' which is a gorgeous - you guessed it - cherry red! Look out for a review on this soon.
I recommend everyone get a Boots card as there are always so many deals on and it's really easy to save yourself money on a lot of things!
