Beauty addict: a Boots haul

At the weekend Harriet got a little carried away in Boots and came out with a fair few beauty items! Everything is on three for two at the moment so it's well worth having a look as you could be picking up a bargain!

Eylure false lashes
Eylure really are fab when it comes to eyelashes so I picked up these Naturalites - as they're a bit lighter than the bigger lashes they do they're much easier to stick. I haven't tried out the Individual Lashes yet but am hoping to get some use out of them at the weekend!

Barry M lipstick
I loved how vividly pink this lipstick was, I tend to either go for a fairly pale pink or a brighter red so it's a new shade for me but I wore it on Saturday when I went out to Snobs (outfit post here) and it was really easy to wear and lasted for ages so I'm definitely impressed.

Soap and Glory Brow Tint and Precision Shaping Pencil
Anyone who knows me knows I'm a bit obsessed with eyebrows so when I saw this I wanted it straightaway! I have to say, I'm not head over heels in love with it. It provides a nice subtle look so I'll definitely be using it when I'm having a laid back day with barely any make up but for the heavier look I normally go for I will have to combine it with other products.

Soap and Glory Kick Ass Concealer
My sister's got this concealer and it looked great so I thought I'd pick one up. The darker shade on the left is great for covering blemishes while the lighter shade is fab for under the eyes and then you use a little of the powder on top! Definitely worth a buy and the packaging is super cute too!

Soap and Glory Cheekmate
I LOVE this product. I've found myself using brown shades a lot recently on my cheeks to try and brighten up my pasty winter complexion but this tint is totally persuading me to go back to the pinks and reds! You only need to use the tiniest amount of this product and it takes about two seconds to apply, with any extra tint going on to your lips to give them a rosy glow. I get the feeling it will last forever because of how little you need each time but I'll certainly be repurchasing when the time comes.

Nail varnish
I don't think I've ever walked out of Boots (other stores are available!) without some nail varnish and this time was no exception. I actually felt I'd been quite restrained just picking up two. The Barry M is the textured nail one we featured on the April wishlist (click here if you haven't seen it) while the Maybelline Color Show one I just thought was a really different colour. I have lots of green shades but nothing like this. It kinda reminds me of gunge but in a cool way! I wore it on Saturday and it provided a much-needed pop of colour for the my outfit.
