Little Boots Haul

23 July 2013


I'm trying to be good at the moment with the spending. Really, I am! But sometimes, if I'm let alone to wander, things can end up messy - messy in the way that I have a whole swatched arm. I feel guilty, but I'm not guilty at all - do you know what I mean? Sometimes, we just have to buy the lipstick. Anyway, just a small little haul really but I picked up some new items that have only just been added to the shelves..maybe I can sway you to part with your money?

Bourjois Shine Edition Lipstick in 20: With the name 123 Soleil, I was sold before I even swatched this one! The Shine Edition lipsticks are packed with moisture and shine to give you a glossier and sheerer feel to the lips, and almost like a flipside to Bourjois' last release, Rouge Edition which are more matte. 123 Soleil is a vibrant coral that shines like crazy. Perfect for this Summer weather and perfect in my lipstick collection. I must add that the pastel and silver packaging is super cute too - I need more of this collection in my life, stat!

Bourjois Colour Boost Lip Crayon in Peach On The Beach: Another name that captured me straight away - reminds me of Peach Daquiri's on holiday somewhere..yes please! I've been desperate to try these Colour Boost Lip Crayons since they hit the scene. Honestly, I didn't find the shades of Clinique Chubby Stick that endearing, but Bourjois have released some good'uns. The Colour Boost Lip Crayons give a glossy finish without the stickiness, and Peach On The Beach is a perfect pinky coral. These will definitely give Chubby Stick a run for their money - they have such a fun, happy vibe!

Bourjois Volume Glamour Ultra Curl Mascara: Ok so it was 3 for 2 on Bourjois - it had to be done! I picked up another of my new favourite highstreet mascara (after the termination of Collection Skyscraper..sob). As I said in my last Boots Haul upload, I used this when I was a lot younger, and it always gave me the results I wanted - serious curl, and mega lift. 

VO5 Refresh Me Quick Dry Shampoo: This is maybe my 8th bottle of this stuff? I can't sing it's praises enough. A quick spritz gives your roots the refreshment they need, with no white dust in sight. Be gone Batiste. You've had your day.

Dove Colour Repair Shampoo: I'm a big believer in switching up your shampoo routine, as your hairs PH is prone to getting used to formulas which can lead to excess oils and nasties. I've always liked Dove shampoos and this one was going cheap - simple as that! I always buy colour shampoos too, as it's good to keep my hair in tip top condition due to it being dyed.

I've got a huge number of Boots points to spend..about £40 worth actually. What do you think I should spend it on? Suggestions please!
