Beauty Haul: Summer Holiday

Goodbye money, hello beauty products! My Monday was a little sucky, mostly because I was too sleepy to be at work. In order to cheer me up a much deserved trip to the nearest Boots was in order (do you guys do that too? :p). And, as you know, when you enter the drugstore fairyland, you cannot come out with just what you actually needed...and that is exactly what happened. I'd rather not disclose how much the final bill was, but here is what I picked up for my upcoming summer holiday (Cyprus, sunshine, beach here I come!).
From left to right we have the Bourjois Paris Maxi Delight Bronzer | £8.99 (shade 2) which I have yet to try, the Bronzing Powder Brush (see here) and the beautiful Bourjois Paris ColorBoost Lip Crayon | £7.99 shade Peach on the Beach. The lipstick is already in my handbag and it is the perfect lippie to wear at the beach as it contains SPF 15 and is so moisturising! These were all Summer Collection free gifts and they couldn't have been more perfect for my summer holiday.

Additionally, I got the famous Bourjois 123 Perfect Colour Correcting Cream | £9.99 in the shade Ivory and it is a great product! I've only used it twice now but I really like how the colour suits my skin perfectly and how light yet good coverage it provides. I think a full review will be in order, what do you girlies think? I also brought home the Bourjois Little Round Pot Blusher | £7.99 in the shade Healthy Mix, a spot-on summer orangey blush. I love how it comes with a little brush and mirror, ideal for on-the-go!
L'Oreal products were on sale and who doesn't love a good bargain?! L'Oreal Infallible Mattifying Primer | £7.99 has been on my wishlist for so long; I heard great things about this primer and wanted try it out for myself to see how it worked with the Infallible foundation. Fingers crossed it lives up to my expectations. L'Oreal Paris Color Riche Exclusive Nudes | £6.99 are also fairly new and Eva's Nude is a gorgeous marsala colour that stood out for me. The lippie packaging is so expensive looking, and both of these have a reserved spot in my travel nécessaire.
Onto skincare and haircare; if you haven't already found the right solution for blackheads, look no further. Bioré® Deep Cleansing Nose Strips & Face Strips | £5.49 are quickly becoming my July favourites. They work so well and really do remove those stubborn little things. It does hurt a little when you pull, but no pain no gain right?! And last but certainly not least, the L'Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil | £9.99I reviewed this here but in short: the best oil I have ever used which makes my dry summer hair so much more manageable and shiny! Love it <3

Have you tried any of these?

Thanks for reading beauties and until next time!

  7. Lol I'm just the same as you, Pam!
    I usually can't get out of shopping with just what I needed to buy or what's the main reason why I'm at the shop..
    Well, I guess women are just like that. Let's say, you go to shop for a shampoo, but then you go home with other products aside from the shampoo ^^

    Hope you're enjoying a wonderful summertime, Pam :)

  49. Lovely post! I love the L'oreal Collection Exclusive lipsticks. My favourite is Eva's Red because it's a dark, matte red that I haven't seen in other 'drugstore' brands! It's definitely become my go-to lipstick for nights out. How are you finding the Infallible foundation and primer? I have seen lots of positive reviews on the foundation, but am dubious, as there are few 'drugstore' foundations which look good on my skin!xx
