who could say no?

Despite my very unhappy bank balance, I still need to buy things for my upcoming SE Asia trip. Or at least that's what I'm telling myself. Boots currently have loads of offers on - one being the 3for2 across make-up, accessories, nail stuff and eyelashes which I abused today. I needed a small brush to take, some powder (as I won't be taking any liquid foundation; kill me!) and some sponges are always good. Thanks to my No7 voucher I ended up only paying for the 17 brush, which, with discount, was only £2.55. Boom. Even I can stretch to that. Oh, and then a pretty cheapo make-up purse to put it all in of course.

And a few weeks back, just like everybody else it seems, I purchased some Models Own nail varnishes when they had their fancy offer on. With the help of Heather from effiesmakeupbox, I chose three neon colours (Aciiied, Tangerine Queen and Pink Punch) and then decided to get the Dorothy-esque Scarlet Sparkle because Disco Mix had run out at the time. Boo. I'm ever-so-happy with my choices though and have received numerous comments at work from customers, which is always nice.

And here are some recently-bought lipsticks: Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate (as in Moss) in 05, 17 Lasting Fix in Hot Chilli and 17 Lasting Fix in New Black. Love them all immensely.

Anybody else bagged any beauty bargains recently?

  1. Love that little make-up purse you've got! My ones so huge, I'm I desperate need of a smaller one so I'll definitely having a lOok round next time I'm in!
    I got to the till the other day, not realising there was a 3 for 2 offer, and was pleasantly surprised ;)

  4. I love the picture of the lipsticks on your hand, what a creative way to display them to us! I've never been a huge fan of lipstick or nail polish to be honest, but I think I'm slowly getting into red lipstick :) Following you on Twitter now! Thanks for sharing! xoxo, Veena <3

  6. I love Boots offers, but 3 for 2 would be terrible for me, I'd probably come away with half of the shop!
    I have that make-up bag in the bigger version, it's so good for taking things away!
