Earlier this month Boots had a special offer where if you spent £50 you received a box of products worth £50 for free. Very tempting. Two of my favourites this month were in the free box.
The first is NO 7 AIRBRUSH AWAY PRIMER This is a silky smooth primer and it really has made a difference to making my foundation look good and stay put. It just sinks into the skin and creates a perfect base for foundation.
Also in the box was MARK HILL XL VOLUME AMPLIFYING SERUM.. This serum is meant to be for fine hair, which I have, but I also have a lot of hair which tends to frizz. This makes the hair very bouncy and so far seems to be keeping the frizzies at bay. It is very lightweight and not too oily.
My local Boots has just started stocking some different brands and I picked up NYX BORN TO GLOW LIQUID ILLUMINATOR IN GLEAM L102. This is a great product for the summer as it leaves the skin with a beautiful subtle peachy glow. I’m really loving this and looking forward to trying more from this brand.
Another favourite is a product I have used for quite a long time and that I find to be invaluable in the summer months when my lips tend to get a bit dry. PIXI NOURISHING LIP POLISH is a gently lip scrub which leaves the lips hydrated and smooth. I usually put this on just before I start my makeup routine in the mornings and when I’m ready to apply my lipstick, my lips are all ready to go.
My last favourite was a bit of a pleasant surprise to me. I was watching a beauty tutorial by Rougepout_beauty and she was using a mascara from Miss Sporty. I had always overlooked this brand, thinking that it was aimed at the teenage market and I am certainly not that! So I thought I would give it a go. It is a great mascara, and so cheap. I love Lancome’s Hypnose, but this is also a great volumising mascara.
I hope your week has been a good one, and that next week is even better.
