Recent Beauty Purchases





 Boots brought back the 3 for 2 offer last week and shock horror, I couldn't resist the urge to buy a 'few' things! My shopping addiction is becoming a bit of a problem! At this stage I might need to consider attending a few shopaholics anonymous meetings. Ha ha! 

Anyway, here's the run down of what I bought!

The first thing I picked up was the Rimmel Stay Matte pressed powder in 001 'Transparent' as my current pressed powder is almost gone (which you could probably tell from this post. Ha ha!). I've never tried this powder before and people are always raving about it so I decided to try it to see what all the fuss is about! The next thing I got at the Rimmel counter was the Scandal Eyes waterproof kohl liner in nude and I also picked up the Nearly Naked foundation by Revlon. I haven't tried out any of these yet but I can't wait to give them a whirl as I've heard great things about them.

I decided to re-purchase my holy grail cleanser which is the Sanctuary Spa Fresh Faced Purifying Wash because I've been testing out a bunch of different cleansers in the hope of finding something a little cheaper that does the same job as this. But unfortunately nothing comes even close to it! :-( I also bought the matching Pore Refining toner as there was a 'buy one get one free' offer on all of the Sanctuary Spa skincare products. I normally only go for cheap toners as I feel that you don't need a fancy toner as long you have a good cleanser that works well for you but I decided to treat myself and go for a more luxurious toner seen as in it was 'free' ;-) Only I'm hoping I don't fall in love with it because my bank balance won't be so happy! *Touches wood* ;-)

I've been obsessed with lip products lately so I picked up two when I was browsing through the Rimmel counter. The first one I bought was the Lasting Finish lipstick in 206 'Nude Pink' and the second one I got was Apocalips lip laquer in 500 'Luna'. I love both of the colours.... they're perfect for the spring! My favourite so far is the Apocalips one..... I've been wearing it non stop since I bought it! I have a feeling it will be popping up in my April favourites ;-).

And last but not least I purchased the one thing that I actually needed to buy! My hands have been really dry recently so I needed to pick up a new hand cream. I just picked up this Boots Essentials hand and nail cream mainly because it says its intensive for dry skin (that sounded good to me!) and because it was only €1.79! (that just sealed the deal even more! Ha ha!)

That's everything I bought! I think I should be banned from Boots! Ha ha! I'm excited to try all of these lovely products and I'll share my thoughts on them with you when I've used them.

I'd love to hear if you've tried any of these products and how you got on with them!

Love,
