London Haul! Boots

Hello Pretties!

Today is going to be the items I got from Boots in London! I also got some Smashbox products too but I gave them a whole blog post of their own (as I was so excited) that you can see here. Some of these products are new to me and some of them are back ups for when my favourite products run out!

This is Rimmel London Lipstick in 206 Nude Pink. This is a pink lipstick (obviously) with an orange under tone which i like as it adds some warmth. I wouldn't say it is a nude colour as such but it gives you something extra to your natural lip colour and its prefect as an every day lip colour. It has a lovely sheen too it.

This is my holy grail product. I don't have many products that I can say are amazing but this is definitely one of them! I haven't even finished my last one and I've already brought a second, that is how much I love this product. It is the No7 Exceptional Definiton Mascara and it is brilliant at getting perfectly separated lashes with length aswell.

I love this mascara! Firstly, I use the above to get the separation and the length of the lashes and then this Soap and Glory Thick and Fast Mascara to thicken up my lashes. This reminds me a lot of Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara just the bristles are a little more spaced out. This is back up for when my current one runs out!

This is the L'Oreal Paris Lumi Magique Instant Radiance Enhancer. Thats a mouthful! I'm not really sure on the colour of this, once I blended this into my hand, it gave me a nice bronzed look. I think that it'll be good when it gets to summer time where I can have a 'no make up' day and it'll enhance a natural tan. It's so light like a mouse and gives and very soft finish.

Recently, I have been really into L'Oreal foundations and I am yet to try the True Match which sounds insane as so many people own it! but I saw this and I thought it would give it a go! It was sort of difficult choosing a colour so I couldn't decide between Rose Pearl and Rose Porcelain. I always go for the generic 'ivory' like i feel most people do and then work from there either up or down the colour chart. This however is the most perfect colour for my skin! It really does just melt on the skin and gives you a beautiful dewy finish.

These eye brow pencils are perfect for my brows. I find these so handy and the fact that there is a little brush on the lid helps the process to become quick and easy. These are the Rimmel London Eye Brow Pencils in Light Brown and Dark Brown.

I have had my eye on the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks for quite some time now and I saw that Seventeen from Boots were doing their own range so I thought id see how they sit on the skin. It's a lovely intense shimmer for the cheek bones but I think it only works with the more bronzed look. It is quite pigmented and gives a pink/bronzed colour pay off which can be a little too much on the subtle make up style.

This is the L'Oreal Glam Shine lip gloss. I have a lipstick that is way too light on my lips so I was after something that's going to counteract the colour and warm it up. This colour is in 101 Pink Moon which is such a pretty name! I love the finish on glosses and they have the perfect amount of pigmentation to match with the lipstick.

Have any go you guys tried any of these? Let me know!
Leave me you links below, i love looking at different blogs.
