Boots Points Splurge



For the past few months, around about Halloween Time (god I miss Halloween and autumn), I decided that I spend & save, spend & save my boots points, as you all know I have a love affair with boots and I can never not walk past and not go in, my family and friends can vouch for this. So after months and months of saving my boots points I finally went a bit wild and bought some things that I loved using and bought before as well as some others that I've heard quite good things about or that I just quite liked the look of. So here is my boots spring treat! 

As you can see I picked up a little bit of everything the best part was knowing that it was being paid for with my boots points, it pays off being a massive boots addict I tell you now hahaha.



The Library Of Fragrance, now I've heard a fair few things about these and loved how each little bottle has a very unique scent. I picked up two as it was two for £25 or £15 each, I picked up Gin & Tonic and Peach. I'd been constantly spraying the Gin & Tonic fragrance on me pretty much every time I walked into boots, and loved it, I also really liked the peach scent as it just reminds me of spring, *starts dreaming of spring and warmer weather* it's very fresh and sweet and slightly different to Gin & Tonic. Honestly they smell amazing and The Library Of Fragrance have so many to select from seriously check them out. I also really love the smell of the Vanilla Cake Batter one (that's next on my boots wishlist as I SO want to buy it), they just all smell de-li-ci-ous.




Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer, This is honestly THE BEST concealer I've EVER bought, it last's all day, gives a really great coverage and just hides anything you feel a little insecure about, I have dark circles around my eyes and under and this is the best concealer I've ever bought, it doesn't go anywhere, stays exactly where I want it too and is just brilliant I picked mine up in Fair 1 as I'm very pale, they have other shades such as Warm Medium & Cool Medium. This doesn't break the bank either as it's under £5.00 you can't go wrong. My all time favourite concealer that I'd be lost without.




Eye's Wise (now that's a mouthful) I picked up a palette by Seventeen, this looked really interesting to me and one of my favourite parts about make up is eyeshadows so I picked up the Seventeen Easy On The Eyes Palette In Birthday Suit. This has a massive mirror which is just ideal, now all the shades in this palette are SO beautiful, they are quite neutral shades, I especially love the pretty pink shades, it's just beautiful and I'm really impressed as to how pigmented they are too as I swatched them and was quite surprised, it even contains an eye primer along with 3 metallic creams. I love the names of the shadows they just make it even prettier. I especially LOVE 4. Radiant Gold, 7. Toasted Almond & 8. Baked Chestnut I can't wait to give this palette a whirl.

I lastly picked up two lip products another from Collection & one from my favourite beauty brand it is of course Soap & Glory. 





I bought a Collection Matt Lip Butter in Marshmallow Pink, Now I actually didn't want this particular one I wanted the non matt one in the shade Vintage Rose, I did buy that one, took it back as it looked like a toddler had munched on it, swapped it and grabbed the wrong one *facepalms* never mind. I did swatch this one before hand and was really impressed as they give a great colour payoff it's a pretty blue toned pink. It slightly reminds me of the Brighton Rock lipstick by Topshop it's very similar. These are really really moisturising and they have a few colours to select from I was torn between this one, Vintage Rose and Pumpkin Pie. I'm looking forward to using this.

Soap & Glory are one of my favourite Makeup brands, I especially love their Archery Brows Pen and also their Supercat Eyeliner Pen, and one of my co-workers *cough cough Andrea cough* recommended their lipsticks so I thought I'd make a little purchase of one of them. I picked Perfect Day it's a pretty berry toned nude, the colour slightly reminds me of MACs Velvet Teddy, Now these are a bargainous £4.00 (atm) and they are unbelievable, super creamy, pigmented and just glide onto the lips, I'm SO impressed with these for a drugstore lipstick they are incredible and feel SO nice on the lips, not cakey and super pigmented and under £5. They have a fair few colour to choose from too, so there's a shade for everyone. Check out Soap & Glory's Makeup range they are definitely worth a purchase.

That is everything (for now ;) ) that I bought in boots, I can't tell you how happy I am with the things I've bought knowing that my addiction paid for them hahaha. Not gonna lie I did feel quite chuffed when I saw the balance on my boots card was a very pretty £0.00 hahaha that and I just got £44.17 worth of goodies as a reward for being a boots addict for 'free'.

I hope you enjoyed my little (not so little let's be honest here Jess) haul.

  4. One of the reasons I don't go in to boots as I would probably buy the whole shop and get myself in a lot of debt :P I need to use my points thinking about it, that palette looks really good, I love palettes.
