Boots makeup haul

Hi lovelies! Hope your all well

So I took a little trip to Boots (the drugstore) which is a shop in the UK that sells things ranging from nappies, toothbrushes and makeup. Whoops! I spent too much, I actually went in to pick up some eyelashes and foundations for my clients and ended up going a little wild. Whilst I was there I thought why not pick up some products for my blog to review and try out.

The first thing I picked up was Revlon Colorstay foundation. I love love love this foundation it lasts and gives amazing coverage. It was on offer for buy one get one half price which was lucky. I love it on myself and clients with a drop of Illamasqua rich liquid. For a review on this foundation click here

I also picked up some foundations for myself. The first one I got was the Rimmel wake me up foundation. I have heard so much about it and have been wanting it for ages. I also got the stay matte powder which I have also heard lots about. I love that its a little compact size to put into my handbag to powder throughout the day- i chose the shade translucent.

Wake me up foundation-£8.99 Stay matte powder-£3.99

From Bourjois I picked up the chocolate bronzer and 1 2 3 foundation. I love watching Tanya Burr on YouTube and she has used the chocolate bronzer several times. Finding a good bronzer is so difficult so I thought I would give this one a try. I haven't heard much about the 1 2 3 foundation but excited to try it out and reveiw it for you guys or maybe do a first impression post. I also purchased the Bourjois volumizer mascara previously and loved it- has to be my favourite drustore mascara, no clumps and it removes so easily, so I repurchased that.

Chocolate bronzer-£7.99 123 perfect foundation-£10.99 Volumizer mascara-£10.49

If any if you guys have been following my makeup looks you will see that I use Collection 2000s lasting perfection concealor. It is simply amazing- beats any higher end concealors I have tried in terms of price and quality. I bought in my shade medium and shade fair to highlight. I was actually dissapointed when I brought them home because the tubes were broken from the top so the concealor was leaking out- so I will be returning these sadly :(.

Collection 2000 lasting perfection concealor £4.19

I received this eyeliner free as I bought 2 Collection 2000 products which is a nice felt tip pen type purple liner. Its actually really good! So pigmented, I wish they would have had it in black. It showed amazing results in one stroke and no smudging or smearing.

I also got 3 pairs of Eylure lashes. I love Eylure lashes- they have such amazing quality at affordable prices. Boots often do a three for two- but unfortunately not this time! I bought them anyway as they were for some clients.

Eylure 107-£5.35  and 145 lashes-£5.45

Do you own any of these products? What do you think? I would love to know your beauty purchases, leave them in the comments below!


Love always 



  1. Love this haul! Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation, I find, is really good! Especially for such a cheap price tag. I found Bourjois 123 Perfect to be okay but it didn't really last me throughout the day and went a bit patchy but that could it be my skin, so I look forward to how you get on with it! Revlon Colorstay sounds so good! X

  2. Love this post!! The revlon foundation looks amazing!! I do that all the time "only going for one thing, heads to check out@ that's £50 please grr! Everytime but great haul either way xxx

  3. Nice haul! I'd've the Rimmel foundation and Collection I concealer! Two of my faves at the moment.
