Boots haul


Today was the first day I've been completely free since my student loan came in so, being the irresponsible student that I am, I hit Westfield. Hard.
I spent far too much money on clothes, but since that would be a little bit more difficult to show here (although ootd's will be coming soon I hope) I thought I'd show you what I bought in Boots. They had a 3for2 offer across basically the whole store so I took advantage! Ooops.

Apologies though, because I have used some of these things this morning so they have some finger marks in them - I couldn't resist! Sorry!

Revlon Cream blush in 'Pinched'
I've been wanting to pick up a cream blush for a while now because as the weather starts to get warmer I like to wear more cream products on my face rather than powder products. This cream blush by Revlon is a beautiful orange/peach shade which is perfect for Summer and the texture of it is beautiful - it almost feels like a mousse. I used this this morning and my cheeks look lovely and glowy and I can't wait to wear this more.

I also bought the Real Techniques Stippling Brush to use with this but I forgot to photograph it and now it's starting to get more grey outside and I can't take one. Blogger fail!
I can, however, tell you that I love it. It's beautiful for applying the cream blush and it's incredibly soft. Finally I'm in on the Real Techniques experience. YAY!








Soap and Glory Kick Ass Concealer in 'Light'

This concealer has 3 steps - first, the peachy/salmon toned concealer for under the eyes, the second concealer for blemishes and then the setting powder to set everything into place.
I really like that this basically covers all of my concealing needs in one tiny little product!
I have been looking at this for a while but I always thought that it looked a little too dark for my very pale skin so I just left it alone but it's deceivingly pale in reality.
I'm excited to use this and see if it does what it claims to!

I also picked up 6 of the new Revlon Colorstay Shadowlinks.
I've read a few reviews about these which say they're not very pigmented at all but over the top of my Urban Decay Primer Potions I think they're just fine!
I like the colour range of these, although I do wish that they had more neutral shades in the range... although I did pick these up because I was looking for some colour.
I'm no help at all am I? Nope.
P.s. I didn't buy these, my boyfriend did. All credit to him.
 
Finally I picked up a Maybelline ColorSensational lipstick in the shade 'Hot Plum'
This is unlike anything I have in my collection. It's a very bright verging on neon blue toned pink. I'm not sure I'd call it a plum but hey ho.
I usually steer away from bright pinks but this really caught my eye, along with the rest of the range if I'm honest and I had to pick it up.
If I get on well with this which I'm absolutely sure I will then there will be a review up very soon so look out for that! 

Swatches!
