Today I was naughty and went to Boots. I only went in for a pack of cotton wool pads (which I haven't photographed) but ended up treating myself to a few new bits and bobs. I can justify just two of the purchases; the Botanics day cream and the Botanics eye cream, as I had run out of the last two products I was using as part of my skincare routine. The rest, well the rest of the items are just naughty splurges, but I'm allowed to be naughty every now and then right?
The first thing that caught my eye were the Rimmel London Scandaleyes Shadow Sticks, in particular the Rose Gold shadow stick from the Kate Moss collection. As soon as I saw the name 'Rose Gold' I was instantly sold. It's such a pretty shade and I think I'll get lots of wear out of it this summer.
After having my nails done by WAH Nails at the #TMDarkRoom event last weekend, I decided to go out and try and find a similar shade to the nude polish I was wearing. I picked up the shade 'Eternal Optimist,' that looks really similar and I also FINALLY treated myself to the Seche Vite top coat. Whilst thinking about my nails, I thought I'd pick up some of the basics, including a cheap Boots nail brush and an emery board that has 7 different sides, each of which do something different to your nails. I'll be sure to test it out and let you know what I think!
Speaking of the Tia Maria event, I noticed that when I was having my hair done, the lovely lady from the Tony & Guy Mansfield team used a powder in my hair that gave it more volume than it as ever had before! Again, I'm not sure I've picked up exactly the same product, but this Tony & Guy sculpting powder claims to mattify, volumise and add texture, all of which my hair would benefit from. Looking forward to trying this!
Having heard my friend Sian and a few other beauty bloggers rave about the Sanctuary 5 Minute Thermal Detox Mask, I thought I'd give it a go for myself. I've heard you can really feel it heat up on your face, so I am looking forward to trying it out and hopefully getting rid of some skin nasties in the process.
Last but not least I picked up a cheap clear mascara from Miss Sporty that I'm planning on using as a brow gel. I usually use a clear mascara to set my eyebrows in place after I've filled them in a little, but the one I use at the moment (from The Body Shop) is well past it's best.
Have you tried any of these products?
What did you think of them?
