First of all, Boots really know how to get me to spend. I needed an eye pencil sharpener as I didn't own one and my eye-liner was in desperate need of sharpening. The only one in store was this lovely pink one by Bourjois. However, there was a 3 for 2 offer on all Bourjois products and I'm a sucker for a deal. So I ended up buying a brown eye liner and a nail polish. The Liner Stylo in Brun (42) will be great for achieving a natural eye look and the nail polish in Tangerine Fatal (33) looks really nice on and is a colour I didn't already own. So, I'm happy with my offer.
My next little spending spree was for a friends birthday. So, I spent mostly on my friends gift (and new shoes but moving on..) but after my sisters friend showed me her Kate Moss lipstick by Rimmel it reminded me that I really wanted to try one. I also needed a new lipstick for that night as all I had was red which sort of clashed with my blue dress. I brought the shade 08 with is a beautiful, subtle pink which I just love. It's really pretty and is a really nice everyday shade.
My final trip, yesterday, was a total Rimmel show down. I really wanted to try their new Retro Glam mascara and was overjoyed to find out it was £2 off! I've just tried it on and I'm really happy with the result, I shall get a review to you by next week. On another promotional offer (I did tell you I'm a sucker for special offers), Rimmel's I Heart Lasting Finish have just released new colours so were priced at inky £1.99. I decided to buy Pear Drop (703) for my Mum which is a pretty turquoise colour. They have such a great colour selection at a ridiculously good price so I really recommend checking them out. On the topic of nails, my nails have been in real need of some TLC so thought I'd give Rimmel's Nail Nurse a try. After just one coat my nails already feel stronger, I'm so impressed. Highly recommended. Finally, I brought another lipstick from Rimmel. This time not from their Kate Moss range but I like it just the same. It's a brighter pink called Heart Breaker (016) and I am surprised by how much I like the colour. I never thought that I'd like to wear really pink lipsticks but Rimmel have changed my mind. Another lovely product.
