I havent been to Boots (UK drugstore) in so long, well shopping in general so long. We’ve been moving home and have been crazy busy with the house since Christmas, all fun stuff though 🙂 Anyway, there have been sooo so many new releases recently that I’ve been dying to get my hands on, as well as a few essentials that I’ve been running low on, so I’ve been looking forward to a well deserved trip to town. Here’s a quick look at what I picked up 🙂
Rimmel’s Apocolips, agh!! God i’ve been dying to get my hands on a couple of these. Rimmel itself stands highly in my book for quality drugstore products. I have a couple of nail varnishes, a concealer, face powder and not to forget one of my favourite red lipsticks is also actually from Kate Moss’ matte long lasting lipstick range by Rimmel, so when I heard about the Apocolip products I was desperate to give them a try. The Apocolips have literally just launched recently and have been causing quite a stir in the blogging world. They are a mix between a high shine lip gloss and a long lasting lipstick – whats not to love? As it’s coming up to summer I particularly was after the bright shades. Now unfortunately I got to Boots and went straight to the Rimmel stand but there were absolutely none left! Not a surprise thinking about it but I was upset, however did manage to find a couple left in Superdrug and picked up one in the shade “Galaxy”. I really like the colour Celestial which is sort of a darker version of a baby pink, something a bit more wearable as I dont think barbie baby pink would suit my skin tone, but they didnt have this in stock. However I picked up Galaxy and this was slightly darker, more on the purple end and I LOVE it! I will have to give it a wear and update you all later this week.
As well as this, I was also keen to pick up a couple of Niveas lip creams, they’ve been out a while now in the UK (just launched in the US) but I hadnt had a chance to test them yet. Again there was only the Caramel & Raspberry left, I didnt like the smell of the Caramel as much as I thought but did pick up the pink Raspberry which smells devine. Have any of you tried this one?
I recently just tried my first body wash by Soap & Glory (Clean Girls) which I’ll be reviewing soon now that its almost finished, but loved it so much I picked up a couple more from Soap & Glory, this time in different scents, there’s also currently a 3 for 2 on all Soap & Glory products at Boots so of course had to pick up 3 😉 god they smell gorgeous, I love shower treats and trying new things in the week, its a nice way to break up monotonous work days and having something new to be excited about.
Also picked up thisworks’s cleansing water, I’ve not heard too much about this but as I havent had luck picking up the cult favourite (Bioderma) I thought I may as well try something local and hope it’s the next best thing! Cant wait to give this a go.
Also picked up a couple of new mascaras, the “Rocket” by Maybelline, there were none left (again!!) at the stand but found one when I was paying by the till – oh yeah! I’d also already picked up another mascara, another newbie launch by Bourjois – excited to try both these out, I think im a bit of a mascara freak.
As well as those also picked up a couple of Dove’s anti perspirants, hand soaps, toothpaste and other random bits! Retail therapy really helped me this morning feel so excited to try out all my new stuff 🙂
