Drugstore Make-up Haul

Recently I've been really naughty, popping into town on little shopping sprees. The location that I've chosen for my photography project is right beside town and the temptation of shopping has got me more than once. I really can't be trusted! So I thought I would share with you the make-up that I've been splashing out on.

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.
