Recent Purchases

Recently I picked up a few bits and pieces from Boots and got a lot of good deals there as well so I thought I would share my purchases with you.
The other day I was starting to run out of my Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation (review to come!) and so decided instead of spend lots of money on another high end foundation that I would re-purchase my favourite high street/drug store one. This is Revlon PhotoReady Foundation and I love it. I got the shade No 4 Nude which is perfect for my skin tone right now.
Boots were doing an offer if you bought 3 Revlon products you got a free limited edition nail polish. I was completely in love with the nail polish so picked up two more products to get the deal. I got the Revlon PhotoReady Concealer which is a hand stick concealer and I must say so far I am liking it. Good coverage and very blendable. I also picked up the ColourStay Lipliner in Red. Believe it or not I didn't own any lipliners so I thought this would be great for doing the perfect red lip for Christmas. It really is long lasting and super pigmented.

The free Limited Edition Nail Polish is called Sequins and is a mixture of chunky and small glitter. It is gorgeous and so festive! I have applied some over my magenta manicure on my accent figure and it is very pretty. You can only get this nail polish if you get the deal and is not available to buy on its own.

The previous week I had also gone in to pick up a black eyeliner as my other Revlon felt tip marker liner was starting to dry up. I saw the L'Oreal Super Liner Perfect Slim and thought it looked good as it had a super slim tip. I also picked up two more L'Oreal Rouge Caresse. I'm in love with this lipstick range! I picked up Aphrodite Scarlet (a pink/coral/red) and Rock'n Mauve (a violet/purple). These are so pretty on.

If you spent £15 on L'Oreal you got a free gift set. The gift set included a L'Oreal Colour Riche Lipstick in Feeric Fushia which is actually more of a shimmering deep red. You also got a Volume Million Lashes Diamantissme Mascara, a mini Revitalift moisturiser and a Colour Riche Nail Polish in Crystalismme.

I think this is an amazing dealing getting all these products for free. The Lipstick is gorgeous and the nail polish makes such a nice shimmer top coat.


Above are swatches of the lipliner and eyeliner. So I feel guilty for buying even more make up but I think I got a pretty good deal getting lots of free products. No more make up shopping before Christmas!
