Beauty Haul

As many of you may know, Boots have been offering a mix 'n' match 3 for 2 on most of their products recently and I just had to take advantage of this (naturally)! This offer came just at the right time as I have been wanting to purchase a large number of products for weeks, even months now and this was the perfect opportunity to get what I wanted and save some pennies in the process. Some of the products featured in this haul, although new/recent discoveries, have already made it into my makeup bag, beauty must haves (expect a post on this in a few days time - yay) and beauty routine - a real win! This haul features all the products that I've bought over the last couple of weeks and I hope to do an in-depth review of my favourites sometime soon! On with the haul then.

1) Soap & Glory Kick Ass Concealer  (RRP £10) - I have heard a lot of good things about this product and am so far absolutely loving it. It is described as a '3-piece flaw camouflaging kit', with a brightening undereye concealer, complexion concealer and a transparent setting powder. It is really easy and simple to use and really does do the job. A must-have in any girls makeup bag.

2) No7 Instant Radiance Highlighter (RRP £9.95) - This product is another one which I've seen a lot of fellow beauty bloggers raving about and I can certainly see why. It comes in a chubby wind up stick format which is great  for carrying around and is oh-so easy to apply and blend. Can't wait to really test this product a thorough test!

3) Mac Pro Longwear Blush in 'Blush All Day' (RRP £20) - I was in desperate need of a blusher as I didn't actually have one - I know - so my friend very very kindly bought me this one. The colour of it is great and creates a matte finish which is just what I wanted and is meant to last for us to 8 hours! I've tried it out a couple of times so far and have found it incredibly easy to apply and blend to create the perfect light, rosy cheeks. Another promising spy.

4) GOSH shimmer brick pink (RRP £8.19) - This is the perfect mix between a light blusher and a shimmer highlighter. When I first bought it, it looked wayy too glittery/shimmery but once I had buffed it a couple of times it produced a gorgeous light shimmer - great for brightening up your complexion! (see below)

5) Maybelline Master Brow Dark Blonde  (RRP £2.99) - When I saw this brow pencil I had to pick it up. It's a two in one brow pencil and 'refined groomer' (as they call it) making the process of doing my eyebrows a lot quicker. I find the colour is perfect for me but it does get warn down very quickly - can't really see it lastly that long! We'll see.

6) Superfacialist Tea Flower Pore Purifying Clay Mask by UNA Brennan (RRP £8.99) - what a mouthful!!  I'm always on the hunt for a new face mask that really does the trick. I was recommended this one by my friend and have so far only used it twice. It left my skin feeling clean and pampered but not too sure if it actually clears up spots etc. so need to give it a couple more tries to see. 

7) Revlon ColourBurst Lip Butter in 'Strawberry Shortcake' (RRP £7.99) - Okay, I'm a bit slow to jump on the bandwagon and join the hype on this one but, I'm here! This looks perfect for the days when your lips are feeling a little dry but you want a little colour to jazz up your look. I got this in the shade 'Strawberry Shortcake' which is quite a light but strong pink colour which I think looks perfect for Spring/Summer time. 

I can't wait  to give all these products a proper try and give you full feedback on what I think of them! What products have you purchased recently/are loving at the moment? Let me know in the comments below :)
