Boots Bargains

I don't know about you but when Boots windows are awash with offers and discounts, I can't help but grab myself some bargains! It's been a little while since I've done a haul so I'm justifying all this on account of blog purposes, and the fact that my massive collection of nail polishes NEEDED those new Barry M releases...
The Boots where I live is fairly small so I rarely find anything that interests me, but for some reason I was drawn to so many things and actually had to limit myself for once! Here's what I picked up!

Rimmel are offering 2 for £10 on all products at the minute which I think is bloody fantastic! I thought I'd be cheeky and take full advantage of this offer, and with the recent demise of my coveted MAC foundation, I FINALLY picked up the Wake Me Up foundation. I'm already loving the concealer version, and with spring coming up, it will be nice to have a foundation that hopefully brightens the skin with just the right amount of coverage! I swatched it in store and was delighted to see that the palest shade 'Ivory', was the perfect pinky toned shade that should suit my skin down to a T!
I also picked up another Kate Moss 107 lipstick which is my absolute fave as I'm sure you'll all know by now with it being plastered all over my blog! I'm coming to the end of mine - which conveniently seems to have disappeared into the pig sty I call a it's definitely time for a shiny new one!

I've been wanting to pick up some of the Speedy Quick Dry Nail Paints from Barry M for a couple of weeks now since I first saw the release, and with their 2 for £7 nail paints offer on at the minute, I was right for biding my time! I picked up a few different colours, all of which are a pastel dream, and I'll be doing a full blog post on them shortly so watch this space! First impressions are good though and I can't wait to properly try out all the beautiful candy colours!

Saving the best until last, I finally make an investment in the new Bold Metals collection by Real Techniques. I had to stop myself from buying the whole frigging stand as they are all so beautiful, but I'm seriously lacking in the eye brush department so I chose the shiny silver Pointed Crease brush to add to my collection. The packaging is so sleek and I love the overall design. An addiction has definitely been started and I'll be marching straight back to Boots in the near future to pick up more of these badboys! I used this for the first time last night and already I'm in love! I've always been abit crap at applying eyeshadow but this little miracle makes everything look so sleek and blended! A definite thumbs up from me so far! Not sure if this was on offer but it was only £12 so I was happy either way.

  8. That's such a great offer from Rimmel, you definitely did the right thing by taking full advantage by getting the foundation!

    My fave drugstore purchase recently has been the Miss Manga mascara, it's incredible!

    I Love the Barry M Shades you picked, I'm such a sucker for pastel nails! Especially now it's spring :D


  9. I adore the Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation, it's such a beautiful formula, and I've had my eye on that R.T Brush for a while now... I picked up the flat contour brush virtually as soon as it was released but despite the horrific pricetag, I want more! Looks like you picked up some real beauts, those pastel nail polishes are just stunning!

  10. I've been wanting to try the wake me up foundation for so long! It's a really popular product in the blogging world and definitely on my list for the next pay day! I'm also a massive fan of the 107 lipstick, ive only had it about month and I sure am getting through it!
