Boots Haul!

It was that time where we both felt as if we hadn't been makeup shopping for quite a while and so we decided it was time for a much needed trip down to our local drugstore. Boots is pretty much one of the best places to shop for beauty products seeing as you have your drugstore and high end brands all in one store. We have to admit whenever we go past a Boots store we simply can not resist but take a look inside and have a peek at any new additions. Let us know if you are the same too!

So yesterday we visited Boots, surprise surprise...and we picked up some beauty bits that we thought we would share with you. Being tempted to buy the whole store as always, we managed to narrow it down to a few products that caught our eye. Most of the products we haven't tried before and so once we have a little play around with them we will hopefully have a review up soon, so keep a look out on the blog as we will keep you updated.

Products we picked up:

Revlon colurburst lipgloss -Fire:
We have always been a huge fan of the Revlon colourburst range as they have come out with some pretty awesome products, especially the lip butters which have been my absolute favourites. We decided to pick up one of their lip glosses and give them a whirl. Price: £7.99

Maybelline baby skin:
Now everyone has been talking about this little bad boy, from bloggers to youtubers and just word of mouth in general. It claims to minimise pores and fine lines and so apparently it is an excellent base for makeup! So once we give it a try for ourselves we will keep you updated on our verdict on this product. Price: £7.99

Max Factor eyebrow pencil - Ebony 1-
This was a total random purchase. Basically, we needed a new eyebrow pencil and so we decided to pick up one from Max factor. It looks like a reasonably nice shade for the brows and so we will let you know how we get on with it. Price: £4.99

Max Factor lipfinity lip colour - 340 Nude-
Ive always seen this product floating about boots for a while and so we finally thought we would pick it up and give it a try. The concept of it had me very intrigued as it consists of a lip colour and a shiny balm stick which is supposedly meant to go on top - pretty cool right! They have some nice shades to choose from and so we went for the natural nude colour for everyday wear. Price: £10.99

Max factor glossfinity nail polish - Cobalt blue-
Being honest, we both aren't huge nail polish wearers, it is once in a blue moon we decide to actually paint our nails. So your probably thinking 'why buy nail polish then?' Weirdly enough we just love collecting them because the shades are so pretty and you never know when we might decide to slap on some nail colour right? The cobalt blue particular stood out to me as it is such a nice flattering deep blue. Price: £5.99

Loreal paris superliner - Black-
This is definitely not the first time we have purchased this product and repurchasing something means it is definitely a crowd pleaser. It is probably the best drugstore liquid liners we have tried so far as it allows you to apply eyeliner effortlessly. I just love it! Price: £6.99

Rimmel scandaleyes eyeliner - Black-
Again another product we have heard so much about in the beauty community- the Rimmel scandal eyes eyeliner. We haven't tried this yet so hopefully I'm guessing it will be good from what I'm hearing. Also it was at such an affordable price. Price: £3.99

La roche posay hand repair cream-
We were in desperate need for some hand cream seeing as you get those times when your hands just need that extra TLC. So we ended up picking two hand creams and being a huge fan of La Roche Posay products I was instantly drawn into this particle one. Hopefully it won't fail to impress us. Price: £4.50

Neutrogena anti-ageing hand cream Spf25-
This was the second of the two hand creams we picked up. This particular one is anti-ageing and contains spf25 which is brilliant! Price: £3.99

Hope fully we will have more detailed product reviews on each product once we give them a trial run. Let us know which product you liked best!
Hope you guys have a lovely day! xx
