I popped into Boots today and got some half price goodies!
Although I am not a big user of Rimmel – some of the products aren’t great, and the packaging breaks on me in a matter of days, I like the look of this palette:
It comes in two tiers, featuring 15 eyeshadows, four lip colours and three blushers.
I love the layout of the eyeshadows! They are more shimmery in real life, and are well divided into blues, mauves and naturals. Rimmel eyeshadows are ok quality – not madly pigmented but they would be good for a sheer look and of course, with primer potion underneath.
I like the blushes too. The darker shade is almost a bronzer.
Price? £7.50 (sorry no links – it is all sold out online anyhow).
Next is Soap & Glory. I loved the travel bag to be honest:
Creamy Shower Gel, Bubble Bath, Shea butter and Sugar Body Polish, Body Butter, Moisturising Mist, Clay Mask, Bath Bar and Eye Mask.
The eyemask has pearls inside and I think it can be refrigerated for a cooling sensation.
I had a bit of a rash with the glossing mist so I will have to wait to see if the other products will work on me.
This kit was: £9
Then Bourjois! These gift sets are beautifully presented in novelty boxes which can be folded over:
Chocolate Blusher set:
Firecracker set with gloss and eyeshadow in Noir – its a black green and with volume mascara, £7.50/
Folded over box:
I have tried Bourjois gloss and eyeshadow here and there – although the mascaras don’t work for me, I love the glosses and quaintness of the brand.
Anything else? Well….
I found this feather headband. I ADORE it – it fits perfectly and I love the ruffles – however, does anyone know if it is suitable for a wedding? I know black is associated with funerals but sometimes if my outfit is going to be all dark, then it might not matter…but perhaps someone with more experiences of weddings can tell me if it is ok or not…
I have a wedding to go to! Finally! The make up planning begins NOW!
I have a sewing table at home so I decided to buy a mini iron so I don’t need to heat up the giant iron we have on little creases. It cost £2.50 – and as you can see, it is about the size of 2 Bourjois eyeshadows:
This wasn’t from the sale, but still it only cost me 99p! I had wanted a precision curler for a while – in my experience, plastic curlers ALWAYS break on me – maybe I am exerting too much force, but anyway, I want to try this out. I have been wanting the Japonesque precision curler for a while, but that’s about £27…
That’s all for now. Tis the early hours in England! I think it is about to snow. Say bye bye, Gingerbread Man!:
