Boots, Sainsburys and QVC Purchases

As I said yesterday I think it was, I had placed a few more orders before the mass spending diet fail of February is over, and they came :)
First of all was the Boots order - I noticed the other day because of some lovely ladies on twitter that the new Revlon Photo Ready Foundation had launched on the Boots website :) I ordered the colour 003 Shell and it seems a pretty good match for my skin

Now obviously because it was new the Boots site had a special offer where you got a free Revlon Matte Eyeshadow free with any Photo Ready purchase - the colour they sent me was 001 Vintage Lace - a lovely matte neutral cream / ivory
Surprisingly enough the current Boots 3 for 2 offer on Revlon was still valid so being me I thought why not and picked up another 2 bits - First of all I picked up a Revlon Matte Powder Blush in 001 Rose Rapture a gorgeous peach based pink and I love the compact with a little pop out mirror lol

I also picked up another foundation - yes that's 4 in one week - faints - this time I got the Revlon Color Stay Mineral Mousse - I got the shade 030 light

I will definitely do a review of these foundations for you in the weeks and so on to come but overall I was pretty pleased with that since I only paid for the two foundations and I got a free eyeshadow and blusher :)
I also picked up another bargain in Sainsbury's the much talked about Garnier Caffeine Eye Roll-on - I have wanted this for ages (more so since I noticed my horrible dark circles in a recent FOTD) and all their Garnier skincare was half price -I swatched the one with concealer but this one felt much more effective and a lot more cooling, and I could use it on non make up days so I picked it up x

Another package also came this morning that I forgot to tell you about - whoops - As you know I love QVC and especially their beauty shows - the Todays Special Value the other day was a kit by Mally Beauty - I must admit I had watched this show before - the MA Mally Roncal is hilarious, but I had never made a purchase until now - the kit was on 3 easy payments which is always a huge influence on whether or not to purchase - despite only ordering it on Wednesday it came this morning and so far so good. The kit came packaged in a pink snakeskin esq cosmetics bag

It contains a High Shine Liquid Lipstick in Blossom, a Black Volumising Mascara, an Eye Perfection Smoothing Eyeshadow in Twilight, a double ended brush, an Evercolor Starlight Waterproof Liner in Black Velvet, a Couture Colour Custom Blush in Bloom, and the Cancellation Concealer System with setting powder and concealer in Light / Medium

I've only tried a couple of bits (the blush and eye pencil) but so far the eye pencil has really stood out it's so soft like the Urban Decay pencils and it seems really hard wearing - I will definitely be doing a review of these products for you too
So there you have another haul - just my ASOS to go and February's failure can be consigned to history x
