Boots 3 for 2 Haul!!

It's been so long since I treated myself to any new make up or beauty products, so when I saw Boots have their 3 for 2 on at the moment, I went a bit mad. Here's what I picked up (over a couple of trips!):

I just ran out of my L'ancome foundation and decided to try out a good "drugstore" one instead. For less than a tenner I picked up 'Match Perfection' from Rimmel. So far I've only used this once but I'm liking it. 
I'm a big fan of Revlon lip products and although I've only tried one of the Colorburst lip butters, I've had my eye on 'Strawberry Shortcake' for a while now. I think this will be a great wearable pink for Spring/Summer. 
With the 3 for 2 I then got a Superlustrous lip gloss in 'Berry Allure' free. I have one of these in a coral already (review HERE) but this particular colour has a way of luring me in and unlike the coral, this has no glitter in it, one of the main things I look for in a good gloss. It reminds me of a dark berry lipglass from Mac that I used to wear about ten years ago and loved (I don't know why I just don't buy that again actually) and I love the look of this because it has no shimmer in it- just pure pigmented gloss. Yay!



I also ventured over to the Soap & Glory minis. Up until last year I was using up the end of one of those big S & G gift sets you get at Christmas but there's still a few things I haven't tried from them so I got a mini Flake Away body scrub, Hand Food hand cream and Hand Maid (anti bacterial hand gel). I carry both hand gel and hand cream with me all the time so this little pair will be well used and like all S & G products, they smell incredible. Similarly delicious is the flake away scrub. Seriously, I just want to eat it. It probably isn't as effective as my Cocoa Brown Tough Stuff for exfoliating but it's a good product and a handy size for travel. 

Lastly, these two were House of Fraser purchases but I got money off with my points, so more saving! Hurrah!
I've been loving my Ziaja day cream for the mornings but needed a new thicker moisturiser for night time and so I turned to one of my all time favourites, Origins. I had tried a sample of this one last year (review HERE) and loved it so I got the full pot the other day. My skin is very grateful.
I also needed a new Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner after whittling down my "Corrupt" one (which I've only had since December..sob), so I went for "Smog" this time, as that's one of my favourite UD eyeshadows. 

I'll most likely be doing full reviews on a lot of these but let me know in the comments if there's anything you'd specifically like to see in more detail!

    1. Has to be done! I always end up getting things I really don't need though, which is silly!

  6. Those lippies look nice, I love UD 24/7 liners, my "Smog" is down to a small stub now, I must replace it because its nearly too short to work with.
