I only went in to boots for a nail varnish remover....

And this happened!!

Boots shopping makeup haul shopaholic cosmetics


Real Techniques Silicone Eye-liner brush
Love all the other Real techniques brushes, absolutely great quality. Wanted to give this one a try as I have recently been enjoying trying to achieve a perfect cat-eye flick... (emphasis on trying!) Hoping this will help!

Rimmel's Brow This Way in '002 Medium Blonde'
Eye-brow tinted gel to hold the eyebrows in shape. 
An affordable alternative for Benefit's Gimmie Brow. Excited to give this a whirl.

Maybelline The falsies & The Rocket Mascara
Both are in waterproof versions. I like the security of knowing if it suddenly starts raining, my mascara won't be running down my face. Picked these up as Tanya Burr recommends the Falsies and Estee from Essie-button raves about the Rocket mascara. Thought i'd give them a go, see what I think.

Saw soap and glory had brought yet another product out....

Their cat eye liner only in a thicker marker pen style! Well of course I needed to try it! Would be rude not too!!



This is really easy to use, has an angled pen tip to create a thicker solid line. 
I Like how it creates a deep black line that stays put. On me it stayed put all day, no smudging or flaking and remained a solid black line.

With it being buy 1 get 1 half price on the Soap & Glory cosmetics, I picked their eyebrow pencil ... mainly because it has a spooly on the other end. Thought it will come in handy to comb through those brows and keep them in place!

'Pink Punch'

Barry M Hi Shine Gelly Pink Punch Nail Varnish

Having never tried the Barry M Gelly nail varnishes... (shock horror!) thought it was high time I did!
This is a lovely punchy pink shade. Gives a glossy sheen and finish to the nails. Applys nicely and is a gel type formula. I have two coats on my nails (pictured left). I got a good few days before it chipped, so I will definitely be picking up more from the Barry M Gelly range!! There are plenty of colours to choose from.

Take time for you. Take care and look after yourself.
