A high-end foundation favourite running out and my never-ending beauty wishlist meant a high-end Boots haul was inevitable sooner rather than later.
The Stila Paint Me Pretty lip & cheek palette is a gorgeous palette containing six cream blushers that I knew I had to have from the moment I first saw it just under a year a go. It includes the shades kitten, peony, gerbera, rose and petunia.
I’ve wanted to try one of Stila’s convertible colour blushers for a while now, and with my Bourjois cream blushers running out this seemed like the perfect opportunity. A single Stila convertible blush costs £16 and this set cost me just £3.50 more so was a no brainer in my eyes.
So far I’m really impressed with the formula and longetivity; the only thing I’m not so sure on is the packaging of the palette itself… each of the shades are simply in a plastic thing, but other than that I can see this fast becoming a favourite of mine.
I also had to purchase a couple of lipsticks from the new Clinique Pop lip colour + primer range. I love the idea of a lipstick having a primer which is what brought my attention to these. I suffer from dry lips so something that helps my lips whilst still being a lipstick sounds amazing in my eyes.
I went for a neutral pink shade (melon pop) and a brighter pink red shade (cherry pop), two shades that add something different to my collection. I’m finding these lipsticks extremely comfortable to wear and love the shades. A full review will be coming soon with swatches.
The product everyone has been raving about since its release, the Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue. I’m definitely a girl who prefers her lighter bases over the heavier ones so this was a product that immediately appealed to me.
The product itself is similar to a moisturiser consistency-wise with a more gel/serum like feel. It applies with ease, covers the essentials and leaves the most natural-glowy finish. I can definitely see why people have been raving about this one – I am so glad I picked it up.
The second to last product I picked up was the Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua foundation. I ran out of this about a month a go and was absolutely gutted as I love the product so much. I knew I had to repurchase this one.
The foundation is extremely liquidy but so easy to apply. It’s one that you can layer and cover any flaws with ease, whilst still feeling like nothing on the skin. It again leaves the most natural finish. Oh, and I also weirdly love the smell of this foundation. My only question why doesn’t the UK sell shade B12?
The final product I picked up was one that isn’t high-end; the Maybelline Color Tattoo in shade pink gold. I see people mention these all the time but haven’t actually owned one since I was a teenager so I thought it was about time I picked one up. After swatching the pink gold shade in store I thought it was the perfect shade so of course this meant it was mine.
And that’s the end of my haul, what have you been purchasing lately? Have you tried any of the products I picked up on my Boots haul?
