Cheeky Boots Purchases

Friday, 4 March 2011

The other week I popped into boots to get the essentials and ended up spending more than I planned. We all do that don't we! I couldn't say no to the 3 for 2 offers that crop up on all the different brands in store. So lets get on with the loot!


Pretty Nails, Instant nail polish remover. £2.44

I originally planned to just buy some normal nail varnish in a bottle, but when I saw this I had to have it. I have a really bad habit of being at work and picking off my nail varnish, therefore leaving me with horrible looking nails and I cant wait to get home to remove it properly! I figured this would be good just to have in my bag for those moments. Plus use it when I am at home. It's less mess, and you don't have to worry about trying to find cotton wool to remove your nail varnish. A tip though, Do not tip the tub up when you're removing the varnish, I did and nail varnish remover came out and went all over my bed! :-( Stinky! 


Natural Collection Tweezers £1.79

Tweezers in my house are like gold dust, I can never find any. Its really frustrating! I've lost count how many pairs of tweezers I have gone through. I found these when searching for a decent pair. And at only £1.79 I couldn't really say no. They have the easy grip handle which is good and the bright colour means they wont get hidden in my makeup collection. They are also really sharp too, sometimes I get tweezers that are so crap and blunt but these are good ones!


Natural Collection Moisture Shine Lipstick, Pink Mallow £1.99

I think natural collection makeup is quite often avoided due to its cheap price, but in fact they do have some great products! I have blushes, lipglosses and powders from them as well as the lipstick in Apple Blossom. Now to add to that I have pink Mallow, its quite a bright pink but really wearable. 


Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation £9.99

First up, I realise i took a photo of the wrong side of the tube. Clearly I had a moment where I convinced myself I was french/could read french lol. Anyway. I have heard so many good things about this foundation so I figured I would give it a try. I always get bored of my foundations and only on the rare occasion do I repurchase the same foundation! I am constantly swapping! I have been using it since I got it and I really like it! I'm sure there are other amazing reviews out there on it so just go to google.. unless you want me to do a proper review! 


Bourjois Bronzing Powder £6.99

I have wanted this bronzer for ages, again after hearing such great things about it. I was going to wait till I finished the Bronzer in my sleek contour kit, but as the 3 for 2 offer was on in boots, i picked it up! I always thought people were mad, when they said it smelt really nice.. but it actually does! I noticed they also do a highlighter in this style too, has anyone tried that. I have my E.L.F highlighter so I don't need a new one, but I am curious! I think I may turn into a bourjois lover!


Bourjois Blush in D'or Rose £7.49

 After reading Jennies post on her mini collection of the blush pots I knew I had to try them. Not only do they look gorgeous, after much research I found out that they were highly rated blushes. I picked up this one which quite a bright pink shade, but as long as you go along with the rule less is more, you can achieve a really nice, pink flushed look and not end up looking like a clown! 
As stated before I got all these items on a 3 for 2 basis so I actually got the Bronzer for free! Always keep an eye out for those deals as it mean's you can finally pick up a couple if items that you've wanted for ages! 

Like I always say with my haul posts, if there is anything you would like me to review, let me know. Theres such a big list and I really should start going through and getting some of them done really! woops. 

I am off to Rome tomorrow And I am not back until Tuesday. So it means there will be no In's and out's this week. Sorry! 

much love.


  1. The blush looks like a gorgeous colour! I have always been so scared to use blush as I have quite olive/yellow skin! I tend to stick to bronzer. I have been thinking about getting braver though!

  2. nice haul, i'd love to see reviews on the Bourjois bronzer and blusher, i *need* them in my life so a nice review will help me justify the spend :D x

  3. I love Bourjois blushers! Also that nail polish remover looks like an essential!
    Enjoy Rome x

  4. I may have to try that nail polish remover, at the minute I use Quickies remover pads (also from Boots) but its always worth checking out new products!
    I always spend money on the 3 for 2's in Boots, regardless of whether I have much or not. Can't wait to finally have enough points to finally have a good old splurge in there!
    Lovely blog, by the way

  5. Ha ha I always end up buying loads when I only mean to pick up a few things. The blusher is a gorgeous colour, I love bourjois little round pots, and how cute is the packaging?! :) X

  6. @Sophie The good thing about these blushes is you can build up the colour so its not so in your face at first. You should be brave and go for it!x

    @Emma. Ive added reviews of those products to my list. Will get them done soon!x

    @daisychain. That polish remover is an essential. Its great when I am on the go!x

    @Bex Thanks for the comment on my blog. :) Yes I like to save up my boots points and then when i spend them I just think to myself. Wayhey i got this for free! :) x

    @little rambling rose I know, i am a sucker for packaging... i think that helped me choose! x


Thanks for taking the time to read my post.
