mini boots haul

March 17, 2014

Here's a mini haul I had in the beauty store Boots. I guess some of you call it drugstore, but I'm not American, so it's a beauty store on the high street. British high street, that is. Now we've got that over and done with, over to the reviews!
The Rimmel London Match Perfection Foundation was bought on a whim, I needed some new foundation and as I love my Rimmel mascaras, I guessed the foundations would be good too. I'm happy enough with it, I must admit you don't get that much in the bottle for your moneys worth but the consistency of the product is nice, it's not too runny and I've now finally found a foundation that doesn't look cakey nor make me go orange. Which is weird, as usually the lightest of the light shades turn me an unsightly shade of Essex orange.
As I said above, I've always loved the Rimmel mascaras, which is why I bought the Rimmel London Volume Flash Mascara. Although it's slightly clumpy and sometimes makes my eyelashes stick together, it is an extremely long lasting product (as long as you don't rub your eyes) and doesn't come running down your face during thunderstorms - which is surprising as the mascara isn't waterproof nor expensive at only £6.69. I'd recommend this mascara to anybody and it's certainly one I'll be rebuying.
Last but not least is probably the best bargain I've had in a long time, with the Natural Collection Vanilla Body Spray. Ever since I bought it back at the end of January I've had it in my bag to spray quickly in between lessons and on breaks from work, as it just leaves me feeling clean and fresh. Yes, the smell doesn't last all day, it doesn't even last half a day, but if you're willing to spray the scent every few hours it's a great product all for a couple of quid. And it makes you smell like vanilla cake, which is always a bonus.
Have you tried any of these products before?
Love Olivia x 


  1. I've tried the Match Perfection foundation but I found it too runny really and I think the shade I got was too pale for my skin haha. I really want the vanilla body spray though! One of my friends uses it and it smells amazing considering how cheap it is! I tagged you in the Whole Lot of Questions tag if you're interested! xx
