Wow, I can’t believe I have only gone up to #3 of my Mini Haul posts on this blog. I think what happens is that I buy a few things and get too excited to use them…so I forget to Mini Haul them :(.
I popped to Boots to pick up a new Soap & Glory Brow Archery as mine had run out and I got accidentally on purpose side tracked by a few beautiful things as I made my way through the aisles. I’m going to give you a brief tour through the carrier baggy bliss that is my most recent Boots haul 🙂 enjoy!
You can see that even though I repurchased that Soap & Glory Brow Archery, I actually forgot to include it in this haul as my brain must have deemed it a boring part of the haul (oops).
The first things I picked up were some false eyelashes, which were on special offer 3 for 2. Usually I go for the really natural lashes as I have quite naturally long eyelashes anyway. This time I thought I’d branch out and get the ‘Banging Beauty’ (what an atrocious name), ‘Lightweight Eyelure No 101’ and the ‘Feline Fierce’ (marginally better name) from the Katy Perry Range.
I’m looking forward to trying these out to see how extreme they look!
The next thing I picked up is probably my favourite, it was a Barry M ‘Bold Blue’ Waterproof Eyeliner, which is simply the most BEAUTIFUL colour it makes my heart squeeze. I tried it out and fell in love with it instantly, I have included a picture for you to see as well.
There is a really lovely metallic shimmer to this shade and although the pencil is quite dark to look at when you apply it to your waterline it actually comes off a lot lighter. The formula is great as it is really soft and it can stand me rubbing my eyes (which I tend to do quite a lot) and it didn’t budge!
The next thing that I spotted was a Barry M nail polish in a lovely marshmallowy, soft baby pink colour, but it also said ‘Quick Dry’ on the bottle. I was intrigued, as I usually don’t worry about nail polish drying times as I have my trusty Seche Vite to fall back on. I thought this was worth a shot, so I’ll update you in due course. I do love the colour and think this will look great as it nears springtime. The shade is called ‘Kiss Me Quick’, had I gone shopping last week it could have been in a Valentines haul!
The next item I picked was the influence of a lovely blogger and Youtuber called Kaushul (Kaushul Beauty). She uses a really affordable Natural Collections eyeshadow in ‘Crushed Walnut’ as a cheekbone contour, so I thought I would give it a go. It’s only £1.99 so it’s definitely more affordable than a fancy bronzer, it is a very cool toned dark brown, so again I will update you once I have tried this out! I don’t like a harsh contour and to be honest I’m not very good at it so we’ll see how I get on…
The last thing I picked up was the new Colour Band eyeshadow sticks by Bourjois. I heard about these after watching a Lily Pebbles Youtube video, where she had picked up the dark brown and pinky beige colour. I was tempted to buy the brown but already have similar eyeshadow sticks so I picked up the jet black instead. This apparently is a two in one eyeliner and eyeshadow stick, so I’ve got high hopes for this. This has no shimmer in it, it is a simply VERY BLACK soft shadow stick, that looks really great to be blended in. I might do a little tutorial or post on this if you guys would be interested? 🙂
OK so I have just realised how long this post is…oops!
I hope you enjoyed reading 🙂 have you tried any of these products?
