Boots and Benefit Haul

26 comments
Hello Lovlies,
I hope you all had a great Easter! I was off work last week, and it also coincided with payday, which meant I've done a bit (ok, A LOT) of shopping lately.
I've got quite a bit of stuff to haul, and rather than putting it all in one post I've decided to break it down into a few smaller hauls. The first haul I'm bringing you is going to be on everything I got from Benefit and Boots. Unless you live under a rock (or if you live outside the UK of course), you will know that Boots are currently running their 3 for 2 promotion accross a lot of their make up, haircare and skincare. Not only that, but they also very kindly sent me double points vouchers which you can use with the Advantage Card. Now if that's not an excuse to go a little bit crazy in Boots, I don't know what is!
 
 High end brands such as Benefit are sadly never included in the Boots 3 for 2 promotions, but most of their drugstore make up brands are. What I didn't realise is that you can't mix and match across skincare, haircare and make up. So there was me, happily filling my basket with all sorts of lovely products and making sure I had the right amount to take full advantage of the 3 for 2 deal. But then when I got to the till I was told by the cashier that you have to pick 3 similar products (for example, 2 haircare products or 2 Soap and Glory products) to get one free and I ended up putting all (ok, most) unnecessary items back This annoyed me slightly, but probably also saved me from spending a lot more money than I actually did!
  
One of the things that have been on my shopping list for a while are the Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliners. I picked up the colours black and brown. So far the only gel eyeliner I've ever used is MAC's Blacktrack. The Maybelline gel eyeliners have been recommended to me by quite a few beauty bloggers on Twitter as a cheaper alternative to MAC, and since I've nearly finished my MAC Blacktrack I decided to give the Maybelline ones a go. I'm not going to open these up though until I'm all out of MAC Blacktrack, but I am really looking forward to trying them and seeing how they fare.
I also bought 2 Rimmel eyeliners, one from their Scandaleyes range in the colour taupe and a regular Rimmel Soft Kohl eye liner in the colour grey. So far I already own the Rimmel Scandaleyes eye liner in Nude which I'm a big fan of, so I'm really excited aboutthese 2 colours. I hope they're as good as the Nude one!
My local Boots is a larger one and they have quite a few high end brands including Benefit, and as I was using my double points voucher I decided to treat myself to a couple of things from there. I got the Benefit Erase Paste concealer and the Benefit Brow Zings brow shaping kit. I'm going to do a full review on both of these product, so I won't talk about them too much now. Both these items have been on my wish list for ages though so I'm really glad I finally bought them!
And that's it for my Boots and Benefit haul. My next haul will be a Clinique one, followed by a MAC one so keep a lookout for those over the next couple of weeks.
Have you been shopping lately? What did you buy?

  9. Loooove me some erase paste - i usually buy that one but tried the fake up this time around and I did like it but it doesn't beat the original! I've bought far too much already this month - including origins ginzing eye cream, an OCC lip tar and a dr hauschka lemon/lemongrass moisturiser :) xxxx
