Boots Haul Part 1

21 comments
Hello Lovelies,

I hope you are all having a nice weekend!

I've got another haul post today. Last week when I went to Laura Mercier (you can check out my haul post by clicking here) I also ended up going to Boots. I've recently changes jobs and my old colleagues got me quite a few bits as my leaving present. One of my presents was a £20 Boots voucher so thank you very much to any of my former colleagues reading this!

This is what I ended up getting:

Real Techniques Expert Face Brush
I love this brush. It's very dense and great for buffing liquid foundation into the skin. I think this brush and the Real Techniques Buffing brush are my all time favourite Real Techniques brushes. This brush is also a good shape that fits into the hollows of your cheeks, so I am going to try to use it for contouring with a cream bronzer.
 Real Techniques Blush brush
I love Real Techniques brushes for foundation and concealer. They are buy 1 get one half price at Boots so I thought I'd pick up a couple more. I'm quite disappointed with the blush brush. It's too soft and large to apply blush correctly. 
Instead of using this for blush I am using it to powder my face after I have applied my foundation. For that it work great, but I wouldn't recommend it as a blush brush.
Eyelure Evening Wear Lashes
Boots had sent me a £1.00 off Eyelure lashes with my Advantage card points, so I ended up getting some lashes. Somehow I find it a lot easier though applying fake lashes on other people than on myself!
Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer
I have read many reviews on the Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation. It's definitely a favourite in the blogging world. I thought I'd give the concealer a go as I already own quite a few foundations. I'm also a bit worried that the Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation will be too sheer for me as I like full coverage foundations. 
Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl in Nude
I've been wanting a nude coloured liner for my waterline for ages as I don't really like using white (or heaven forbid putting any make up on my waterline at all!). This one is great. It's very creamy and long wearing. I will definitely be checking out more colours from this range.

Well that's it for the make up items I bought from Boots. I've also picked up a few non-make up items that I will be putting up in another post. 

Have any of you tried these products? And what other  products can you recommend from Boots as I have a few double advantage points vouchers that I wanna use up!

Thank you for reading!

  1. I like the blush brush as a blush brush. I think it depends on the size of your cheeks. I've got chubby cheeks so it works well xx

    1. I do think the blush brush is great for powder, just not for blush. Try n get the expert face brush if you can it's brilliant! xx

  8. I don't have the blush brush but I've seen it around on blogs and I always thought it looked a bit big for blush! Love the buffing brush though, next purchase will be the stippling. Lovely blog you have here and you're really pretty honey! :)
