NEW IN! The Boots Edition

Obviously, I could not have been here for more than 10 days now and not have gone into Boots and picked up a few things. So a mini haul for you lovely folks.
Lets start of with the one I'm most excited about the Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation in 55 which has replaced my trusty Happy Light that I had to leave behind. And you know what? I like it MORE. Its more coverage, but since its gel based it goes on better and stays put forever - not that I have a problem with products staying on here, I mean, its cold all the time. 
Next up, was a new Mascara I needed and the Revlon Bold Lacquer Waterproof Mascara looked much to pretty to pass up. On first try, I did not like this, but now that its dried up a bit, its pretty darn great. Its insanely lengthening and does a great job of separating, which I love or day to day. Also, I got rained on when I was wearing this - did. not. budge.
The Rimmel Brow This Way Styling Gel is supposed to be a great dupe for the Benefit Gimme Brow, but since they didn't have my colour in stock, I chose the clear version, which is very.. meh. It doesn't really hold my eyebrow hair up, and its a bit wet for my liking, but you never know, time will tell. 
Finally, the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge which I've wanted since it came out. I haven't really played around with it much, but I will tell you this - it makes the face looks flawless, even if it does take a while... review on this soon! 

So what do you think of my picks?


  1. Wooo! Boots haul! I'm surprised you haven't tried the Bourjois matte liquid lipsticks yet ;)

    Tell me more about the RT sponge? I've heard nothing compares to the original Beauty Blender, and I'm torn, because I like RT too!

    1. I haven't tried the original, so I can't say much, but it's fantastic for blending in your foundation and giving you that 'no makeup' base, y'know?
      Ugh, I wanted to! But with school where we don't wear makeup because we practice on each other, haven't had a chance to buy stuff I want, let alone use it.

    2. Ahhh, okay, that makes sense. With the holidays coming up, maybe you'll have a chance to wear it? :)
