It’s that time of the month again (nah, not that one) when I find myself needing one product (in this case a blush, since mine broke *cries*), but I end up buying some more stuff…
If there is something that I can’t stop myself from buying is cosmetics. Skin care products, make-up, brushes… Bring it on! And I always seem to find at least one good reason for popping into Boots or Superdrug (which is near where I live; I heard it whispering my name once), which was totally acceptable this time!
After getting sucked into the high-end vortex inside Boots, the first thing I picked up was, ironically, not the blush I came for, but the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in 001 Transparent, I mean it’s £3.99, people! This is the third time I’ve had it, so that is saying something! (especially after the disappointment that’s been Benefit’s Hello Flawless powder, find out why here).
Next, I chose the Max Factor Creme Puff Blush in 30 Gorgeous Berries, which is not that purple-y in real life, it’s actually a very, very pretty shade of rosey pink mixed with some mauve tones. Gorg!
Now, we have two premiers, as I have never owned anything from Burt’s Bees or Soap and Glory before (I’ve been living under a rock, yes).
I’ve heard so many good things about the Burt’s Bees Honey Lip Balm, that I decided on buying the set with the hand cream as well! Never have I had hands this smooth! Oh, and my lips will probably stay moisturized until the next Easter.
Lastly, I accidentally picked up the Soap and Glory Righteous Butter, the travel size (£2.50!!) on my way to the till… #no #regrets. I’ve never been a body lotion kinda gal, as it usually takes ages for it to sink in and it feels sticky afterwards, but this one is a dream! The sweet scent lingers on for hours and it’s hydrating without being too greasy on the skin. I will think about buying the entire thing for sure after I finish this one.
That’s it, folks!
