Boots 3 for 2 offer! Bourjois, Revlon, Soap & Glory.

So I thought I'd wander back into Boots as this 3 for 2 offer on hair and beauty products is just too good to resist. And as expected, I didn't come out empty handed. In fact, if it wasn't for the rational part of my brain I would have come out with a lot more. (It was a change your mind, be realistic, put the excessive things back and head straight to the till before I change my mind kind of moment)

I had gone in for a hairbrush, I was working in Bournemouth for the weekend and forgot to pack a hairbrush and went in just before the store was closing. Needless to say I totally forgot about the hairbrush once I was in there, but I am pretty pleased with the products I did get. 

I got the Bourjois '1 2 3 Perfect' foundation £9.99, Soap & Glory eyeshadow quad in 'What's nude' £9.99 and Revlon Colorburst Lipgloss in 040 Crystal Water £7.99. 

I have used the foundation once and loved it. At the moment I've really suffered with my oily skin and I've found that the Loreal Lumi Magique foundation I've been using has been making the situation worse. I have always been impressed with Bourjois Foundations and I love this one. It lasted all day and gave me a matte finish with out being too matte. It also prevented my face from appearing to be oily. 

The Revlon lipgloss was something I saw on Louise (Sprinkle of Glitter) and Zoe (Zoella)'s video. It is a clear gloss with pink and blue shimmer sparkling through it when held up to the light- really pretty.


The palette includes four matte shades and one shimmer. 

Left to right: Vanilla, Pink T, Mudhoney and Aubersheen.

Swatches of the colours, I did have MAC paint pot in 'Painterly' under these colours as a primer.

Really impressed with this quad as it is perfect for me, I am a huge fan of neutral colours and you could pack this palette to go anywhere with. Definitely a brilliant contender in the nude palette market and feel like it's much easier to put in my handbag over the Naked Palette. I am also pleased that there are 3 matte shades and one shimmer. For me, I prefer matt nude colours over shimmer. So for me this was well worth the money and I'm impressed with the pigmentation. 

See you in my next post
