Boots Bits #1


Hey Guys

So in the middle of this month I popped into boots because I decided that I wanted to pick up some new bits because I was getting bored of what I had in my collection.

First I added to my basket the Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation in Shade 52 Vanilla  I decided to get this because I didn't have a foundation which was not too heavy coverage and was more than a BB cream, I have read some reviews on this foundation and decided that I would pick it up and see what I think of it.

With the weather getting warmer I decided that now could be a good time to get a BB cream as I don't like wearing foundation as much in the summer, I picked up the Rimmel BB cream Matte in light.I don't know if it is just me but this seems to be a really dark shade for the start of a line however if I get a bit of a tan or fake tan this might be a match for my skin. Since then I have picked up the Bourjois CC Cream in Ivory and have fallen in love with it let me know if you want a review on it.

For when I wanted a higher coverage I decided that I was going to get the Revlon Colour Stay in Buff. I will say that this foundation lasts all day and gives a beautiful amount of coverage. I managed to have it on for around 17-18 hours and I could see it was still in place before I removed it so I would recommend this if you are looking for a hard working foundation.

The final base product I picked up was the Bourjois Healthy Mix Concealer in 53 dark radiance now I will admit that I picked the wrong shade up when I was in store and I meant to get the lightest shade but I am going to work with it and see what I think due to the fact it doesn't look that dark , However I am also going to get the correct shade that I need in the next few weeks in order to try it properly.

I seem to have had a stage of losing all my eyeliners and for the life of me can not think where they have gone which means that I have had to repurchase a new black and also a nude one.I decided that I would just go an repurchase the Rimmel Scandel Eyes Kohl Liner.I both shades because I know that I get on with these trusty products

The final eye product which I picked up is the Loreal Color Riche Mono in Chamilion . This is a beautiful shade when you are doing a nude smokey eye and a colour which can be worn every single day. There is not a swatch of this product due to the fact that I can not get it to photograph and it to show up.


The last three products which I picked up were the Maybelline Color Drama Lipsticks , In order of the swatches top to bottom they are In with coral,Fushia Desire and Love my pink. I have worn these shades a few times now since I picked them up and have found that they are so easy to wear and they last a long time even when eating and drinking. 

What was your favourite thing that I picked up in this haul and if you want to see full reviews on anything please let me know in the comments.

  1. The bourjois concealer and foundation are great, I love the slightly lighter coverage for the summer months! They don't smell as bad as most foundations either. P.s. If you haven't used the concealer and still have your receipt, Boots do swap them if you needed a lighter shade.

    1. I have found the foundation amazing since I have started used it. I can see this become a firm favourite over the summer months. Oh I did not know you could do this shame that I had thrown the receipt away.

    1. I must admit I only like light coverage when it is in the summer months so this is going to be perfect for me over the summer.

  4. Love those lip colours! My entire collection pretty much consists of reds so I definitely need to add some pinks to my collection.

    1. They are some of the most beautiful colours. I must admit I own a lot of reds as well that is one of the reasons I went for pink shades to add some variety into my collection.
