Boots Beauty Haul

Recently I ran out of a few beauty staples, so I popped into my local Boots to restock, and I may have 'accidentally' purchased some extra little goodies, which I thought I would share with you for my first blog post.

Not a lot of things, but still quite exciting!


My hairbrush broke the other day, which was a tragedy! Luckily I had a Tangle Teezer lying around, but my hair gets incredibly knotty and so I knew that I had to go out and buy a 'proper' brush as soon as possible. This is a Boots own brand set consisting of three brushes which L-R are supposed to be used for; Volume & Curl, Detangling Comb and Smooth & Shine. It was £11.99 which isn't bad considering its three brushes for the price of one!

I am also running low on makeup wipes which I use daily for taking off my makeup before washing my face at night. I'm not fussy when it comes to choosing which makeup wipes I want, and the Boots own brand had the sensitive skin type ones which I prefer, and all for a deal of three for £3, so I am now stocked up for a long time!

I also shattered the little remains of my Rimmel 'Stay Matte' powder, so I went out and got the exact same one as it works just fine for me and it is quite cheap at £3.99.

I've heard about this Rimmel 'Match Perfection' foundation from various different people, and youtubers tend to rave about it as well, so I decided to try it out. I tried it for the first time yesterday, and it was the perfect match (010 Light Porcelain) and it was quite a medium coverage, which you could build up if you wanted, but I prefer the more natural look and so I was very happy with it! It was £6.99 as well so very affordable!

Boots were having a three for two deal on all Rimmel products, and so I decided to just treat myself to a new lipstick because why not. I wasn't looking for any particular shades, but this caught my eye as a good transitional pink from Spring to Summer. It is the Kate Moss lipstick in the shade 05 and it was £5.49.

I am also running low on my holy grail concealer which is Collection 'Lasting Perfection' concealer in the shade 01 Fair. I use it every day without fail and it is only £3.99 so you cannot really go wrong.

I have two of these Bourjois liquid lipsticks already, but in the matte collection which I love and so when I saw that they had brought some glossy colours out, I had to try one. I got mine in the shade 01 'Appechissant' and it looks like a very nice pinky nude. It was more on the expensive side for a drugstore lipstick at £8.99.

I also ran out of shampoo and conditioner and so decided to try the Herbal Essences brand in the formula for 'Beautiful Ends' to prevent split ends as my hair is medium-long. These were £3.89 each.

Let me know if any of you use these products or have any other recommendations!
