Like a lot of bloggers/girls/women/make-up lovers in the UK I did a little squee of delight when my Boots vouchers dropped through my letterbox and there was an extra leaflet alerting me to the 3 for 2 offer that we all know and love.
Boots are great for offers, usually it's within a brand but when it's accross all make up things get very interesting and you can see why there is a lot of hype in the beauty blogger world. With the thought of Boots points and telling myself 'it's free!' I got one of my many notebooks out and started to put together a wish list.
Blogs come in so handy for this and the wish list soon grows and grows (and grows and grows...). it would have been rude not to have my own little haul. I mean, if we ignore these offers they might stop doing them! We're helping the economy! -or something.
I'm off to Disneyland (oh haven't i mentioned about 1000 times?) and after a recent tragic accident involving my HD brows palette in my suitcase I want to make sure that I only take things with my that won't get knocked about in transit and
ruin my life break. Instead of taking palettes with me I'm opting for eyeshadow crayons and rather than damage another brow palette I thought I'd take it back to the old school for 5 days and I bought myself a brow pencil. I picked up a cheap and cheerful Maybellne Master Brow in Soft Brown for £2.99, it looks like it will do the job fine.
I knew I needed to get a lip liner for my pink lipsticks and I'm always hearing great things about Rimmel Exaggerate Lip liners. I picked up East End snob for £3.99, its the perfect shade for MAC Creme Cup and my L'Oreal Julianne Moore lipstick too.
This is where I struggled, picking the 'free' thing is always difficult for me. I don't know why, it's just like you need to make sure it's good, you kinda need it, you'll use it and it's not more expensive than the other 2 as it just throws everything out of whack and ruins the point entirely.
After a little browse I ended up picking up a Collection Lip Liner Definer in shade 4 Pink for £2.79. I figured this would be great to pair with my brighter pink lipsticks and possibly corals too.
I went in a second time for another look - I just couldn't help it and it's always best to make two trips if you want to get the best out of the offer! I'm like a 3 for 2 pro! My main reason was to repurchase my
Bourjois 123 Perfect foundation (£10.99), I love this stuff, it gives me the perfect coverage and it's a foundation I always go back to.
Sticking to Bourjois I also got the Bourjois Primer Bronzer for £ 9.99 which is a great versatile product, it's great for this time of year to add a bit of colour under foundation or alone and it works really well for me to contour my cheekbones. I've been after a cream contour as I just find them easier to work with than powder, which is strange as I'm terrible with cream blush. weird.
Lastly I had to jump on the bandwagon and pick up the Max Factor Creme Puff Blush for £8.99. My Boots only had 4 of the 6 shades available which was a pain as I really wanted to try out Lavish Mauve but I decided Seductive Pink would also suit me and like most other bloggers I love it.
So I got 2 products for free saving £11.78 and I also had a '£5 off when you spend £20' voucher too so add that to the mix and you're laughing. It totally justifies buying yet more make up to add to the collection!
Did you get anything in the 3 for 2 offer?
