A few bits from Boots

I love a good Boots 3 for 2 deal and currently, Boots are offering 3 for 2 across makeup, skincare and haircare so I guess it would have been rude not to pick up a few bits after I was paid this week.  I used my last purchase before my spending ban to stock up on some new makeup bits as my skin care and haircare stocks are adequate for the month.
The first thing iI picked up was the L’Oreal Nude Magique Eau De Teint Foundation as I’ve heard it’s a fantastic dupe for the Giorgio Armani’s Luminous Silk Foundation.  At only £9.99 it’s also a fraction of the price.  I haven’t tried it yet but I’m already curious as when you shake the bottle up and down you can hear the formula jiggle about and it sounds… wet!  What I mean by that is runny; most of my foundations are thick even if they’re light weight.
After running out of my Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer it was time to replenish the highlight concealer stocks.  This time I thought I’d go for the L’Oreal Lumi Magique which is styled as a highlighting pen.  Just like the Maybelline version, this one is also made by the same parent company that product the YSL Touche Eclat so I’m hoping there has been some sharing of information.
When I was in London last week I sadly lost my mascara in the back of a Uber (and had to go 2 days at work without any mascara on my eyes… don’t ask!) so I decided to pick up a new one in the 3 for 2 deal.  After sending out a tweet asking which mascara I should try the overwhelming favourite was Maybellines ‘The Falsies’ so naturally I picked up the waterproof version.  I’m not sure how we’re going to get on my I’m excited to try a new product as I’m still looking for that perfect mascara.
So those are my little makeup treats for this month.  Trust me, it took A LOT of restraint to curb my spending after three items.  Have you picked up anything in the Boots sale?
