Boots Haul

I popped into boots this morning to get some eye make up remover and came out with this lot!
I’ve been having real problems with my eye lids getting really sore and puffy lately. I think it might be the liquid eyeliner I am currently using, so that’s going in the bin! My make up remover has started stinging my eyes aswell so I bought something more gentle. I got nivea ‘extra gentle eye make-up remover’ and simple ‘kind to eyes’ eye make up remover pads. I haven’t had chance to use them yet but hopefully they will more gentle on my eyes.

Barry M nail paints were on offer so I got Raspberry 273 (right) and grey 293 (left). Raspberry is the most gorgeous rich, deep berry red colour and will be perfect for autumn/winter.

I’ve heard so much about the new barry M glosses so thought I would try them out for myself. I got number 4, baby pink and number 2, toffee. I’ve heard some good and some bad things about these but I have to say I love them! the baby pink is much more pigmented than toffee, which can be scary but applied in the right way creates the most gorgeous baby pink lip. Less is definitely more with these!
Baby Pink

I picked up Revlon matte lipstick in pink pout. Its a gorgeous mid tone pink that I think is really wearable because it’s not too bright.
Finally, I got Maybelline khol express in black, which is a lovely creamy eye pencil. I got the barry m kohl pencil in white, number 30 and the shimmering eye and lip crayon in gold. It’s a really pretty light gold colour, perfect for highlighting.

Swatchy Goodness!!
