Mini Budget-Friendly Boots Haul!

Friday, September 25, 2015

Hi everyone,

Happy Friday! Delighted I have no college on Fridays this year. Every weekend is a long weekend now!

Anyways, I was in Boots a while ago, (and this morning actually... I love giving them all of my money) and I picked up a few budget-friendly things:

I've been hearing great things about the Boots Botanics range lately, especially the Radiance Balm, so I decided to buy it and give it a go. I also got their Radiance Concentrate Serum.

I LOVE the Radiance Balm. I've been wearing it under my foundation since I bought it, and it just makes your skin glow. You can put extra on areas like your cheeks to give a glowing, highlighted effect under your foundation. I think it looks great!
I also really liked the Serum. It left my skin looking really bright without makeup, and its really moisturising too.
Get the radiance balm here. (€7.99)
Unfortunately I can't find the serum on Boots' website but, I was in the Waterford store this morning and I saw it on the shelf and I think it's around €6.

Lately, I've been more of a lipstick girl, but, I thought I'd buy this Rimmel Oh My Gloss lipgloss because I really like the colour and it says that it lasts six hours. I got it in the colour number '130 Purrr... Glossy Cat' (weird name):

I actually really like this! The colour looks great on and it makes your lips really soft thanks to the argan oil in it. I wouldn't say that it lasts the full 6 hours that it promises, but it still does last long. Being a lipgloss, it is quite sticky and my hair got caught in it a few times, but, I like the colour and the look of it so I don't really mind.
You can buy it here. (€6.99)

I've been looking for a really good shimmery highlighter for nighttime makeup for a while now, and after reading SoSueMe's review of the Seventeen Instant Glow Shimmer Brick, I knew I had to get it and try it out!

This is fabulous! I got it in the colour 'Pink Bronze', so it's kind of like a bronzer and a blush all in one. It's so shimmery, I love it! It's actually the perfect highlighter for a night out. It makes your skin look so dewey and healthy. I use it on my cheeks above my cheekbones and on my temples. LOVE IT!
Buy it here. Seriously you won't regret it, it's only €6.99!!!

I also got two of the new Rimmel London Kate Moss nude lipsticks at the same time and you can read my review on them here and buy them here. (€6.99)
