So I made it, 100 days! On Monday 20th that was me 100 days spending free,100 days of not purchasing any beauty items. So in celebration of this I purchased some little goodies, now I didn't go mad just purchased a few little items that I've had my eye on for the past few months.
The ban hasn't been that difficult to be honest, being busy played a big part in this though. The thing I missed the most was taking a little walk about Boots which I probably do every few weeks. Even if I left empty handed I still liked looking at the makeup and things so on my ban to avoid temptation I really limited myself and didn't enter the bad at this moment in time but oh so goooood place.
So here is what I picked up:
Garnier Moisture Match - Matte
I currently don’t own a moisturiser and know I need to start using one so was this was nicely priced I picked one up.
Backcomb in a bottle
I have heard mixed reviews on this so for £1.99 I thought I would give it a try and the small size means it fits in my handbag, great for a quick boost, if it works that is.
Maybelline Dream touch lumi
I don't own a liquid under eye highlighter and heard this a YSL dupe so I'm excited to try
Maybelline Gel eyeliner in brown
I own this in black and it’s fab so recently I have been using a brown shadow to line my eyes for work as it’s less harsh but it doesn't stay put very long so I hope this does the job better
Garnier eye makeup remover
Ran out of my old one so picked up this as I've heard it does an excellent job
Barry M Flawless Matte Finish
Matte foundations in the drugstore are few and far between so when one comes up I feel like I have to test it, for review purposes obviously.....hehe
Nicki Minaj Pink Friday
I normally walk past the celebrity fragrances, only because any ones previously I've not liked so when I spotted this in the boots 70% sale and they had a sample next to the box I wondered over and had a sniff. OH MY this is gorgeous! Right up my street and I got it for £6.90!! Bargain alert!! This set comes with a lotion, the perfume and a roller ball which is perfect for my handbag and the bottle is gorgeous as well.
Now I made another trip to Boots this week to pick up the new Revlon Matte balms and while browsing online I noticed Boots had an offer of 500 points on selected premium beauty so I had a browse and spotted 2 things that I've had my eye on for a while so thought why not buy now and gain the £5 points. I picked smashbox travel size photo finish primer and Clinique bottom lash mascara. Excited with my new goodies I had a look at my receipt and noticed the extra points were not added so I popped back online only to see the extra points deal was only with purchases online DOH!! Oh well, I still have fab goodies to try eekkkk.
So I have lots of new goodies to try, I'm excited!!
