Boots Haul #2

Another naughty Boots spend! The item I was most keen to get my hands on was the Real Techniques brushes because I have been wanted them for so long. A couple of necessity items and then a few Boots deals.... (P.S. sorry about the quality of the pics, I'm having a bit of difficulty at the moment with my photography skills so if anyone has any good tips or related posts, please feel free to share!)

Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum
I've been after a new foundation for a little while and although I was looking for one with a bit heavier coverage, I've heard rave reviews about this so decided to pick it up. It has a similar coverage to a tinted moisturiser but I prefer that. I will do a full review soon!
Bourjois Maxi Delight Bronzer
My Rimmel Sun Shimmer Bronzer didn't last very long before I dropped it and it shattered into a million tiny pieces. So when I saw that Bourjois also had a 3 for 2 in Boots I thought I would pick this is up as part of the deal as I watched a video by LLYMLRS and she raved about this bronzer. I haven't used it yet but I'm pretty excited to use it, I love a good bronze!
Models Own Nail Polish in Blueberry Muffin and Nude Beige
I'm not going to lie, the only reason I went for the blueberry muffin shade is because of the scent it promised. I haven't tried it out yet so I don't know if this smell sticks but its still pretty cool. Plus the colour is lovely. Another brand another Boots deal (2 for £8) and as I only buy nail polishes when they're on offer I thought I would add these two to my collection. Plus I've never used Model's Own so I'm pretty excited to test them out.
Real Techniques Core Collection
Another blogging fave! In every single YouTube tutorial or 'Get Ready With Me' video that I have watched, these brushes are used. I'm a bit tight with brushes and I always think they are crazy overpriced but when I saw that for one single Real Techniques brush it would cost £9.99 I thought I was getting a pretty good deal buying 4 for £21.99. And they are lovely to use, especially the buffing brush. I actually think these brushes are changing the way I apply makeup. I love it!
Bourjois Colour Boost in Red Sunrise
This product has been reviewed by every single blog that I read so the time had come where I had to try it out for myself. I couldn't decide on the colour as I loved them all but I haven't really got a lip colour like this one so went for it. Its a deep pink/red shade and is super glossy, I love it! It applies really easily and lasts quite a while, leaving your lips feeling moisturised but not sticky. Perfect!
Boots Oval Cotton Wool Pads
A staple item in one's beauty collection, I must go through so many cotton wool pads! When I saw these slightly bigger ones I decided to go for them as they will probably last longer because I won't have to use as many.
Boots Nail Polish Remover
Another necessity. I've almost ran out of my current bottle so needed to pick one up. I believe that one nail polish remover is the same as another so I'm not prepared to splash out on a more expensive brand. #Cheap

So that was my second Boots haul, 2 in one month! I do feel for my poor bank balance. I do love Boots though, I always go for whatever they have on offer. I just love looking at my receipt after and seeing what I've saved so that later, when I have to justify my purchases when buyers remorse sinks in, I have some proof that it was actually a bargain!

Has anyone else made the most of the Boots deals? Or got their hands on some new beauty goodies recently?


  1. Haha, I'm the same! I love picking up offers to save but boots can be quite pricey. Might start looking at products there & then buy them online/elsewhere for cheaper! Looks like you picked up some great stuff though :)

    1. I know what you mean, but that's why I tend to just buy whatever is on offer unless its something I'm desperate for :) x
