Boots Autumn Haul


As soon as I got back from my holiday abroad it dawned on me that it is now basically autumn, and before that thought even had time to process in my head I realized that I had spent so much time shopping for summer make up that I had completely forgotten about my favourite season for make up! So I popped into Boots to get a few autumn lipsticks...and a couple of other things!

The first thing I popped into my basket was the Revlon ColourStay Foundation. Now I've heard lots of good things about this and some of my friends even compare it to Estee Lauder Double Wear so its quite astonishing that I haven't tried it yet! Like ELDW this foundation promises long lasting, medium to full coverage, and I also like how there is two versions for each skin type as I've never seen this with a foundation before. Out of the corner of my eye I also spied the Revlon Photoready Primer, which because of the name and because of my love for Smashbox Cosmetics Photo Finish Primer, I just had to buy! Since it was three for two on Revlon I couldn't just walk away without a Lip Butter, so I got one in 'Red Velvet' which is a stunning dark red.

After this I strolled over to Barry M to get some nail varnish and decided on two of the Gelly High Shine Polishes! I often paint my nails different colours so I decided on two which I thought would compliment each other and got one in 'Papaya' and one in 'Cocoa'. I dont know why but these are always my go to nail products as they are so affordable and pretty chip resistant!  Sticking with the nail theme I also picked up a bottle of my favourite nail varnish remover, which is the Cutex Nourishing Nail Polish Remover. This is so much better than standard removers as it whitens and strengthens your nails!

Next I decided to head to the Sleek stand and got one of their Blushers in Flushed. This is a little dark but I think this will look amazing blended out in the autumn over my Nars Sheer Glow Foundation! Sleek Blushers are such good quality yet so affordable! I also picked out a nice brown Lipstick in Vamp, which again I thought was a good choice for fall! I can't wait to wear this on a night out and test it's staying power as I've never tried these before! 


If that wasn't enough I spotted that one of my favourites was on offer near the till point and decided to stock up with two of them! The Simple Gentle Eye Make up Remover is honestly the most effective eye make up remover for people with sensitive skin, and it leaves absolutely no residue! I'm so glad I have two bottles to get through now !

What do you guys make of my purchases? Anything here catch your eye?
