Recently, Boots did an online and in-store offer, where if you spent £20.00 on certain makeup brands, you got a gift box full of products for free, with a value of £40.00. Now, this offer has sold out, but I thought I would show you what is inside in case they do a similar promotion in the future, and I really, really hope they do.
Firstly, we have the Rimmel 60 Seconds Super Shine Nail Polish in the shade 430 Coralicious. This is a bright pink-toned red shade which will look fabulous on the toes or finger nails. It has a nice wide brush so that application is a doddle and it dries pretty quickly, which is great for me as I hate waiting for my nails to dry as I usually end up chipping them.
We then have the Sleek Matte Me Lip Cream in the shade Shabby Chic, a pretty pink-toned nude, perfect for everyday wear. The majority of these products are full-sized, as is this one and the formula is really creamy and slightly velvety, without drying the lips out.
The Maybelline Great Lash Mascara used to be such a cult beauty fave back in the day, so it is great to be able to try this out again. It has a traditional bristle brush wand and works well for an everyday lash. I wouldn't say for my fine, thin, straight lashes it does as much as other mascaras, but it will be great to take on my holidays.
Another lip product in the box is the L'Oreal Color Riche Matte Lipstick in the shade 640 Erotique. This is a rosey-toned nude, and again will work well for everyday, or for evening. I love the L'Oreal lipsticks and I haven't tried a matte one before, but this is very pigmented and not at all drying on the lips.
I love face masks, and so I was pleased to see the Garnier Skin Active Moisture Bomb Tissue Mask inside the box. I have used so many of these, and they are really hydrating on the skin, which is perfect for the colder months we have ahead of us. There is also a 1.3ml sample sachet of the L'Oreal Revitalift Filler to try.
A product I haven't tried before is the Rimmel Ultimate Kohl Kajal Eyeliner in Black. This is a thick crayon which has a pointed tip, and glides onto the skin effortlessly. The only problem I had with this is that when I went to use it the second time, the crayon had come out of the container so I couldn't use it again.
The final treat in the box is the NYX Lingerie Lip in the shade 21, a milk chocolate brown nude colour. The NYX Lingerie Lip products are amazing, and super creamy, and whilst this may not be everyone's cup of tea colour-wise, I really like it as this sort of shade suits my skin-tone.
I think this is one of the best things Boots has ever done. There is such a range of brands and products to try, and all but one are full-sized. I really do hope they release another version soon! You can check out Boots online here.
All the Loves,
