I made multiple mistakes today all leading to a massive naughty haul in Boots which isn't on my list of Essential Student Finances, and therefore should shame me! I decided to let you in on it:
Mistake 1: Deciding to go to Boots after my day of boring lectures
Mistake 2: Entering Boots whilst in the knowledge of their 3 for 2 promotion on makeup, nails, eyelashes and accessories
Mistake 3: Letting myself touch makeup whilst experiencing high levels of impulsiveness
Mistake 4: Taking time to read a sign which tells you that the 3 for 2 works in your favour - by ordering your purchases in price order and giving you every third item free, rather than simply the cheapest ones (If you are buying 6 or more purchases)
Oh what lovely products!
Real Techniques Stippling Brush £11.99
Well I have been eyeing up Pixiwoo's Samantha Chapman's brushes for a loooong time. This was one of the first things I picked up! I credit some of this willingness to Rachael from Smeemies who featured a Real Techniques brush in a recent haul - think that tipped me over the edge!
No7 Perfect Light Pressed Powder in 'Fair' £11.50
A mixture of its cheap & cheerful quality and ineffectiveness when partnered with my new No7 foundation has caused me to branch out and find a replacement for my Natural Collections Face Powder
MaxFactor False Lash Effect Mascara Gold Limited Edition (£10.99) free!
Unfortunately I'm yet to write my post comparing the False Lash Effect Mascara to the Lash Architect Mascara.. I feel this gives the game away on my preference! But look out for my post as it shall (hopefully!) give balanced reasoning with both mascaras!
Real Techniques Blush Brush £9.99
When I made the decision to purchase 6 items instead of 3, this was pretty much in my hand instantly. And I'm so pleased
Bio Oil 60ml £8.99
I have ummed and ahhed over this product for an extremely long time. I have spot scarring on my chest/shoulders/back and whilst its not something which affects me day-to-day I have been unable to get any to fade, and this is championed as clearing most skin imperfections
Save The Nail 45 Second Top Coat (£6.95) free!
I have never used Save The Nail before, however my No7 Top Coat has turned gloopy and I wanted a change
Total Haul Cost: £42.47
I have no regrets.
