Boots Haul

Here I am back with another haul, I honestly can't stop myself recently! There just seems to be so many new and exciting beauty/make up items in the high street that I end up getting lured in and with a full basket. What first drew me to the Boots website was the launch of the Maybelline Baby Lips which every blogger has been chatting about. As they are not in stores yet I thought it the perfect time to make an online order and to get free delivery I had to spend over £20 so that wasn't very hard.

So first things first I picked up 3 of the 6 Maybelline Baby Lips, Maybelline is currently on 3 for 2 at Boots hence why I got 3. I was tempted to get all of them but thought that was a tad extravagant considering I've never tried them before and wasn't sure what to expect. Anyway the 3 I picked up were Peach Kiss, Pink Punch and Cherry me. I haven't properly trialed these as I only got them yesterday but so far I really like them. They all smell fruity and I really like the packaging. Also Pink Punch and Cherry Me have a slight tint to them, and I'm talking very slight, but I can notice it and I rather like that about them. These are also only £2.99 which is a bargain and even better with the 3 for 2 offer on at the moment.

Next I picked up 2 Sinful Colors nail varnishes, I've wanted to try some of these for so long since they launched but never got my hands on them. Again they're a product that I, personally, can only get online due to all my local Boots not stocking them. So again this was a perfect opportunity to order some. Sinful Colors have many different finishes of nail varnishes which is nice to have the variety there within the same brand. I picked up one glitter, obviously the green, which is called 'Call You Later' and is a lovely lime/olive green glitter. I also got 'Daredevil' which I believe may be a pearl finish (if I've got that wrong then it's just a normal varnish) but it's a very bright fuchsia pink. I can't wait to try these and for only £1.99 each they're definitely a bargain.

I then got a few bits from Collection, recently I've been on the look out for a make up setting spray. I haven't actually come across many other than the Urban Decay one (which I still very much want to try) and this one I purchased. It's called 'Fix Me Up' the long lasting make up fixer. This is obviously a high street one and was a slice of the price at £4.99. I think these setting sprays could be a staple in the summer months so I'm excited to try this. I also then picked up a 'Work The Colour' eyeshadow pencil, this is an influenced purchased from Zoella featured in her recent video. I got this in the colour 'Vintage Blush' which is a gorgeous shimmery pale pink, I've only swatched this on my hand but it seems creamy and is a lovely colour which would look nice in the corner of the eyes or all over the lid. Also because I spent over £4 on Collection products I got a free nail varnish, this was a nice little surprise as I had no idea what colour I was going to get. It's actually a rather nice teal green colour called 'Electric Dreams'.

My last purchase was from 17 and is one of their creme eyeshadows called 'Wild Metallic Eyes' and I got the colour 'Wild Nude'. Again if you watched Zoella then you'll know this is another influenced purchase. It's like the Maybelline Color Tattoo's (which I already have one of and I love. I was also actually going to purchase another one of these online but all the colours were mixed up and I didn't want to receive the wrong colour) but it's less pricey. Again I've only swatched this but the colour is very wearable as you would think as it's called nude. It's also very creamy and there's just not so much shimmer in this one compared to my Maybelline one. The other thing which will define the 2 is the wear of them, the Maybelline ones really do last all day so I'm looking forward to seeing if this one matches up too that.

So that's it for my Boots Haul, I hope you enjoyed it and I'd love to know if you've tried any of the products I purchased and your thoughts on them! It's payday again today and there's already more things I want to purchase (as always) but I'm trying to hold back, let's see how long this lasts, hehe! Hope you're all having a lovely week :-)
