Sooo… I went in for one thing and came out with a few more. Always the way, am I right? In my defence, I hadn’t been in Boots for a while so it was about time!
Natural Collection Eyeshadow – Milk Chocolate
My Boots app told me I’d get 100 points when I bought two or more Natural Collection products. Who am I to disagree? I think Natural Collection is an underrated drugstore brand, as everything I’ve tried for them I’ve been impressed with considering the price. I picked up this single eyeshadow as it’s a super natural colour which could be used everyday for a subtle wash of colour on the lids. They have a great colour selection, and a couple of shimmer shades I might have to go back for…
Natural Collection Cover Up Cream
I tried this YEARS ago and decided to pick it up again. The coverage is not amazing, but if you don’t need anything heavy duty then this is great. It’s not too thick, blended well, and actually did a good job of hiding my really dark under eye circles (which was very surprising). The only negative is that there are just two shades. I’ll put this to the test and see if it can survive a full day at work, but so far so good (and such a bargain).
Maybelline Brow Drama Pomade Crayon
I found this on the new in stand and couldn’t resist. I haven’t heard or read anything about it so I’m interested to see how it fairs, but so far so good. There are three shades to choose from, all cool tones which is great. I picked up dark brown for myself, and my mum got dark blonde First impressions, the crayon is super creamy and applies really well. It fills your eyebrows in super quickly, however if you like a precise line for your eyebrows this maybe isn’t for you. I personally really like it so far, and with a couple of £s knocked off at the moment I’d recommend picking it up and having a swatch.
Max Factor Colour Elixir Lipstick – Rosewood
I saw this colour lying around on top of the display. It’s not something I’d have picked out for myself as I don’t usually wear pink colours, however I gave it a little swatch and into the basket it went. It’s a lovely dusky rose colour, with a little pearl/shimmer finish (but nothing horrific… don’t panic!) and the embossed X and gold packaging makes it look more expensive than it is. I’m already picturing this lipstick finishing off a sophisticated make up look!
Batiste Dry Shampoo
Basically the law that every month I pick up some more dry shampoo. I love the floral scent, and with buy one get one half price (or some similar deal) I wanted to try one of their “specialist” cans, as sometimes my hair can be left looking a little dry.
Boots Glycerine and Rosewater Toner
Hands down this is my favourite toner EVER. Plus it’s such a bargain coming in under £3. It smells amazing and has done wonders for my skin. I suffer from dry skin and this is one of my go to products for keeping everything moisturised – when I don’t use it, I notice it!!! It’s a little sticky on the skin initially, but under a moisturiser this is not a problem at all (don’t know anyone that would use a toner alone?). 100% would recommend this if you’re looking for a moisturising toner!
Have you tried any of these products? What have you picked up recently in Boots?
