Mini Boots Haul: 17, Barry M and Soap and Glory

Hi everyone!

Hope you are all well :)

Today I popped into Boots as I knew they had the 3 for 2 offer on all cosmetics and I needed something a bit special (see below!) so I ended up indulging in three lipsticks! My 'Naked' palette arrived yesterday (review coming soon!) and has proved that I never need another eyeshadow again so lippies were the choice today!

I also picked up a much raved about item from Soap and Glory!

So, on with the mini haul!

Lipsticks from left to right: Barry M in shade 37; 17 Mirrorshine in Beehive; 17 Mirrorshine in Hollywood.

Now, don't think I've gone all crazy Marilyn Manson on you with the black lipstick! It's all in the name of fancy dress, as one of my pals from Uni is having a Lady Gaga themed outing, and I am attempting to dub her lips as below:

So that was the something special (or spooky!). As part of the 3 for 2 I picked up two of 17's Mirrorshine Lipsticks.

The much raved about Beehive instantly appealed to me, in part because of the hype and also because I swatched it and instantly thought, 'I see what everyone means!' It's a gorgeous glossy, pinky nude and it's like a 'my lips but better' shade. It's going to look gorgeous when I'm just casual on a daytime!

 I've been searching for a wearable red for aaages! I've had a few lipsticks but I've never picked the right shade for me and a few of them have been matte which my often dry lips can't deal with! I swatched Hollywood and LOVED it! It's glossy and a little sheer, and just the right shade of red that suits me!


I also picked up The Breakfast Scrub from Soap and Glory as I don't have a great exfoliater, just a cheapo one I picked up in Wilkinsons, and this has gotten great reviews!

It's really thick in consistency, I was expecting it to be gloopy! You can see the dint where I had a little go of it! It smells de-eee-licious! I think this will be a great scrub for my dry skin!

So that's it!

Have you taken advantaged of the 3 for 2 offer?
