Boots Haul

I don't often buy a lot in Boots but seeing as their beauty products were 3 for 2, I thought I'd have a quick browse. I needed some essentials but they decided I couldn't leave the store without treating myself to a few bits.

It wasn't actually advertised in store that things were on 3 for 2, it was only because I happened to check the price of a few things online that I saw the offer. Maybe it's only just started. Anyway, the first thing I bought was the Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Pillow Plump XXL in the shade Pinkwell for £10.00. It's a plumping gloss and I picked up a sheer colour which almost comes across as see-through giving a slight hint of pink to the lips. When I first put this on, my lips were tingling, and I did notice a slight difference. It's not as sticky as lip glosses I have used in the past and maybe that's why it doesn't seem to stay on for as long as I'd have liked, but I'm going to keep using it.

The second thing I got was Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner at £7.99. This is my 3rd pot of this and I really like it. I have a strange eyeliner routine. I like to use gel liner, but I apply it with an old 'felt tip' eyeliner. My nib on my old one was getting a bit old and fluffy from the constant cleaning I was doing and my eyeliner was coming out quite thick so as you can see from my next purchase, I have replaced that too. This gel liner comes with a brush which I personally find really difficult to use, I might have to check out a tutorial or something. The liner is a really deep black colour and stays put all day without smudging.

My 'free' product as mentioned earlier was a Revlon Colorstay eyeliner pen which should have been £6.99. I really like this for the top of they eye, it creates a nice neat thin black line, but I am yet to master the 'flick' with this pen, I can't seem to get it right, which is where I am currently using my gel and my old eyeliner pen.

I then bought some deodorants, I like using a roll-on for the morning and topping up with a spray if needed. I got a Dove roll-on reduced to £1.15, its a really fresh and fruity scent. I then got a Sure compressed spray which I believe was £1.00. I won't talk about these too much as they seem a bit of a boring purchase but something I definitely needed.

The last thing I bought were some replacement blades for my razor which is a Wilkinson Sword Intuition Naturals Sensitive Care Razor. I got this razor in a Glossybox and it costs about £6.50. These 3 blades cost £6.79 but they last quite a long time. I love this razor because the blade is surrounded by soap which leaves my skin feeling so soft and meaning I don't have to use any shaving foam. These get really close to the skin as well.
