Boots 3 for 2

I think everyone heard that Boots were doing their famous 3 for 2 on cosmetics deal again, so after much consideration I decided to take advantage of this and buy myself a few treats. I went for the Maybelline Super Stay Better Skin foundation, Revlon Skinlights Face illuminator and Maybelline Brow Drama mascara as I had been lusting after these products for ages. 


Maybelline Brow Drama sculpting mascara- Medium Brown
I have tried this product a few times since I bought it and I absolutely love it. I have mostly worn it on its own when I just can't be bothered to fill in my brows. It adds a tiny hint of colour and keeps them in place all day. It looks completely natural and is so easy to use. As it doesn't add the effect of full brows you might want to fill them in first and then use this after to set them. However if you are in a hurry its a great quick fix for that no make up make up look.

Maybelline Super Stay Better Skin foundation - 030 Sand
My favourite full coverage drugstore foundation is the Maybelline Super Stay 24 hour, so when the Better Skin version came out I was excited to give it a try. It promises more even skin tone instantly and better looking skin in 3 weeks as it has an energising vitamin formula and SPF 20. I have only used this for about a week and so far so good. Its a brilliant medium/full coverage foundation, smooths on easily and lasts all day. The shade I picked is a tiny bit dark but a thin coat looks fine on my face, especially when I have applied fake tan first. I will definitely be using this foundation loads, I have no complaints and I would compare it to Mac's Studio Fix Fluid.

Revlon Photoready Skinlights Face Illuminator - 200 Pink Light
This product can be used as a highlighter along the points you wish to highlight or mixed in with foundation for a full face illuminator. It is a beautiful baby pink colour and looks stunning along the tops of your cheekbones. As it is quite shimmery you only need a tiny amount, it is very liquidy so is easy to apply and blend into the skin. When mixed into a matte foundation it really does add a fairy like dewy look, which subtly illuminates the face. I really like this product and is a nice change from powder and cream highlighters.

    1. Thanks lovely. I love the 3 for 2 sales, such worth while waiting for them. The highlighter is beautiful. I love the wake me up foundation, definitely one of my favs but I haven't tried the concealer. Was going to by the L'Oreal teint but I prefer a bit more full coverage, sounds cool though z
