  • Boots Haul

    I’m soon to be a skint student so I am in saving mode. This is not great for my spending addiction though, so I made the conscious decision to spend some of my Boots points.

    DSC_0235.JPGHere is what I purchased:


    Maybelline Eraser Eye Concealer £7.99. I’ve heard great things about this under eye concealer and I’m yet to find a concealer that works for my stubborn dark circles, so here is hoping this will work a treat!


    Maybelline Colour Tattoo £4.99. Sticking with Maybelline, I decided to finally give these a go. These are cream eyeshadows. I got them in ‘Pink Nude’ and ‘Eternal Gold’. I think these will be perfect for bases or those lazy days when I just want a one colour I can sweep across the whole lid. Unfortunately, I will have to take back ‘Eternal Gold’ as the tub was completely empty.

    DSC_0248.JPGMaybelline Master Ink White Eyeliner £5.99. This is a white liquid eyeliner that is meant to be smudge proof and long lasting. White eyeliner isn’t a product I would normally go for, but I think it could be quite fun to play about with.


    NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick £6.50, Soft-Spoken. The liquid suede line is my favourite from NYX so I had to get some more. They apply very easily and dry to a matte finish but don’t feel drying on the lips. They also last a great length of time. If you’ve read my May Favourites, then you will know I am loving this shade right now.


    Sandstorm. This is the other shade of liquid suede I purchased and it is also a gorgeous colour. This is more of a brown/nude shade and it is right up my street. I can see myself getting a lot of wear out of this.


    Here you can see both swatched.


    NYX Lingerie Liquid Lipstick £6.50, Honeymoon. I already have one of these in the colour Corset’ which I love as it is very muted and perfect for every day wear so I thoughtI should get another as these sort of colours are perfect for my work. I’m yet to test this out but I am back to work tomorrow so will definitely be giving it a go then.

    Well there we go, all those products for nothing. If you don’t have a Boots card already, I would highly recommend getting yourself one.

    Thanks for reading,

      I literally wear ‘Sandstorm’ every day. It is the best! I just love all over NYX’s products. So amazing. Great haul!

      Haha, I know what you mean about saving and being a student; I’m in the same boat! I like NYX products, and they are affordable.

        I love NYX but I’ve only tried their lip products so far. Have you tried anything else?

        • June 1, 2016 / 5:16 pm

          I’ve just tried their lip products and their makeup setting spray. The setting spray made me break out, but I have sensitive skin!!

      Fab haul!
      I tried Soft Spoken and I LOVE that colour. I was a bit let down with the NYX Lingerie though – I got Beauty Mark and I thought it was so patchy! 🙁

        It’s gorgeous! I must admit, the formula of lingerie isn’t the best but with the pale/nude colours I don’t mind it. If there were a red in the collection, then I don’t think I’d like it. 😊 x

      I have the NYX Liquid Suede Lipstick in Sandstorm and it is flawless and so lightweight on the skin 🙂 Thanks for the follow, following back!

      lots of love, Jane

      Amazing haul! I picked up the NYX Suede lipsticks at Boots just yesterday! but being a nearly skint student who won’t be receiving student loan anymore I actually put it back down 😓 . Your swatches make me want to go back and actually use my points too haha xx

        Boots stock them online! Also, they are starting to be introduced to stores which is great

    13. June 2, 2016 / 7:42 pm

      oooh let me know if you write a review for the under eye concealer…as someone that suffers from dark bags, i would 1. love to read that and 2. seriously recommend sleeping with coconut oil under your eyes – it makes SUCH a difference x

        June 3, 2016 / 12:18 am

        I will be writing a review so I will definitely let you know 😊 x
