Boots Haul

Oh dear, i've done it again! Yes i have bought more make up when i clearly do not need it! I blame Boots and there 3 for 2 offer! Yesterday i managed to get to Boots.and spent a happy hour or so browsing. I haven't been in there for ages so had a good look around. Surprisingly there wasn't much i wanted. I got  three beautiful Bourjois eye liners.I created this look with them Along the upper lashline is Contour Clubbing Waterproof  in no: 46 bleur neon. Above that, and along the waterline, is 45 bleu remix (my favourite). These are both crayon types and glide on smoothly and give good colour pay off. Along the lower lashline is their Khol & Contour pencil in 19 blue surprenant. This didnt go on as smooth and the colour payoff wasn't as good.

I bought a Rimmel Renew and Lift foundation and powder. I love the powder, but need to wear the foundation for a few days before i can give a verdict on it. I also got a Collection 2000 concealer,Rimmel 60 Second nail varnish in Pulsating (photo below)

A Collection 2000 Glam Crystals in  Dig It a gorgous gold and black glitter liner- very rock chick.
I fell in love with a No 7 eyeshadow palette. For the record, i am not usually a  No 7 fan. I think they are over rated and over priced. So i was very surprised when i found this. The colours were so shimmery and beautiful. And it was free.........IF you bought a certan mascara - which was £11. I'll be honest, i didnt want the mascara really. My hubby said -'would you pay £11 for the palette?' My answer was yes, so i got it.

But my favourite item is this gorgeous make up collection by Front Cover. You get 15 baked (dome) eyeshadows and 5 pressed ones. You also get 4 mini glitter gels a double ended brush and  a liquid that transforms eyeshadows into eyeliners (to be truthful a damp brush does the same thing just as well)

Now i haven't heard of them before but they had some nice looking kits in Boots. My husband spotted this gem and bought it for me as a present which was so sweet of him. I played with it as soon as i got home and came up with this look.

The colour was much richer in real life. I used the green from the kit all over the lid, taking it above my crease. Then i applied a Smashbox deep green shadow with gold flecks on the outer corner of the lid and crease.This created a really gorgeous smokey eye.
Well i think i've rambled on long enough. Just one  question. What beauty bargins have you got recently?
