Super Small Boots Haul

I love popping into Boots and swatching their makeup but I have to restrain myself from spending too much money. I recently got paid so thought I would treat myself to a few bits and bobs so whilst this haul is only a small one, I still managed to spend over £40.. Oops.

The first item I stocked up on is the Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation in the lightest shade 1C0 Shell. This is a foundation that I used to swear by and when my Kat Von D one ran out the other day I decided to go back to my roots. The formula hasn’t changed since I last used it, however this colour is so light I definitely need to contour or I look a bit flat! Thank goodness I don’t tan in the summer hah! This is a medium to heavy coverage foundation which I love as I have very red cheeks that need the extra coverage. This foundation costs £30 but you only need a small amount at a time and it lasts all day. I am loving having this back in my routine and to me it is worth every penny!

The next item I picked up was the Nivea Men Sensitive Post Shaving Balm. I have seen beauty bloggers galore raving over this product after using it as a primer. Everyone and their mum has been snapping this product up and at just £5.35 it’s a lot cheaper than my usual primer and you get a lot more product!  The day after I bought it I even saw Kylie Jenner raving about it on Snapchat. Honestly girls, grab a bottle – steal your boyfriend’s if you have to, you need to try this product! It makes my foundation go on so much smoother and this is down to the ingredient glycerine. I think this is my new holy grail product. I literally love it! The only downside is the typical male aftershave scent but that soon wears away once your foundation is on top. It is also worth noting I found this in Wilko for half the price! Not sure if it was on offer or it’s the normal price but worth looking if you have one near you.

The final product I bought was the Sleek Matte Me Lipstick in Birthday Suit. I first discovered this shade when I saw it on Megan from Mostly Megan on YouTube (her amazing channel is here) and I knew I had to have it! I put some on my hand when I was working the other day and it literally stayed put. I washed my hands multiple times and even slept with it on my hand and the staying power was incredible! It applies like a gloss and sets matte. It’s not drying in the slightest and lasted for hours, even throughout lunch! I have heard this is a good dupe for the Kylie Jenner Lip Kits too, I am waiting for mine to be shipped to me so I will be sure to compare them when it arrives!

That’s it for my small boots haul! Have you picked up anything exciting from there lately?
