Boots Makeup Haul 2013

Here's a tip girls, when your mum says she needs to bob to Boots for some conditioner don't go, it always results in you buying things you don't need. I learnt the hard way yesterday afternoon haha, but I did pick up a few new beauty items that I had on my wishlist, so I thought I would show you. Prepare to see some beauties!

Boots Haul
Barry M Hi Shine Gel Nail Paint
Indeed Labs Hydraluron £24.99
This skincare product has been a huge hit in the blogging world over the last few months and after a long time of umming and arring, I decided to use my birthday gift voucher to pick it up. It's essentially a serum that supposedly increases the skin's hydration levels. I'm very interested to see if it lives up to the hype and I will definitely let you know how I get on.

Bourjois Magic Nail Polish Remover £4.99
I adore this product, so whenever Bourjois have an offer going on I always pick one up it was free. I now have 2 backups in my stash haha. If you would like to read my full review of this product here's the link.

Bourjois Paris 1 Second Nail Polish in 26 Blue No Blues £7.99
Strange name, but beautiful colour! I've not tried any Bourjois nail polishes before, so in the basket it went.

Barry M Hi Shine Gel Nail Paint in Key Lime £3.99
After being very impressed with the shade lychee, I decided to pick up a few more polishes from this line. This one definitely stood out to me so I bought it, much to the dismay of my mum, she's strictly a red polish girl/lady.

Barry M Hi Shine Gel Nail Paint in Prickly Pear £3.99
Again such a pretty colour it had to be bought!

Bourjois Paris Colour Boost Lip Crayon in Peach On The Beach £7.99
Being the only beauty blogger left on the planet not to own this lip crayon, I had to of course pick it up. There wasn't any left on the actual display but I sneakily looked in the draw underneath and found a few. So if your store are out of stock I definitely recommend having a look in there.

Lastly, it's not from Boots but it's still relevant.

Shabby Chic Storage
     White Wash Wooden Beauty Box Dunelm Mill

After bobbing to Dunelm Mill for bed sheets, I found this little beauty. How absolutely perfect is this little box, I had to get it, need I say more.

I really think I need to curb my spending as I go on holiday in a few weeks, though I have picked up a few holiday essentials which I will probably show you at a later date. But from now on I'm on a "Do not spend project!" I guess time will tell how I get on but I am going to try really hard, but you know what they say, leopards can't change their spots haha.

What have you picked up recently, anything to add to my list?

XOXO Claire
