Boots Mini Haul

Being a student means that I'm broke all the time..but I always manage to pick something up in Boots. I went out last Saturday for a 21st...I know a 21st, it's so daunting (I feel so old)! So, I ended up picking up a few bit in Boots on my most recent trip, and these were basically all essentials that I needed for this 21st. Boots always have amazing deals on  and I always end up picking up something.

So the first thing that I bought was tan. I've been really cheap lately and using the Penneys St. Moriz tan, which is great and all, but it can also be quite dodgy at times too. I bought Garnier's Ambre Solaire tan, which I don't ever remember using. It kind of reminds me of the L'Oreal Sublime tan, but not as good. Now saying that, it was a fantastic tan, went on well and I didn't come out all streaky (I've been applying tan since I was about 13 and at this stage I should be a professional  but no, I always manage to miss a huge part of me and end up looking ridiculous). I did miss one part, but it was on the top of my leg so it wasn't too bad. It's a bit sticky and smells horrible, but the overall result I was so happy with. I would definitely recommend it to others.

The next product I bought was lashes. I am a fiend for lashes, I love them! I only started wearing them about a year and a half ago but I definitely couldn't go on a night out without them. I went through a phase of buying the Eylure Naturalites Double False Lashes, but at almost €13 a pop I really couldn't afford them. Just after Christmas I bought the Kiss Haute Couture Lashes and they're just as good, if not better than the Eylure ones. And they're also a lot cheaper (€7.99). The come with a little pink applicator thing, which is no use, stick to the tweezers girls, but it's still a really good idea! You can kind of see what they look like on below! Again, I would recommend these to anyone!

Maybelline Color Show - Solar Flare
So, on Saturday I had an outfit planned in my head, and I always do this. All I needed to complete the outfit was orange nail polish (I know orange is such a strange colour but that's the theme I was going for). I'm not too sure whether Maybelline's Color Show nail polishes are new or not, but I ended up picking up three. This was mainly because boots had on offer on, 3 for the price of 2. And at less than €5 each I couldn't say no. I bought two orange shades and a blue. I wore the metalic orange shade on my night out and to be honest, I really wasn't impressed with them. This could be because I didn't like the shade and it kind of looked watered down. I'll have to try the other two colours before I make my final judgement, but I realistically probably won't buy it again. But sure you learn from mistakes right?! The three shades I purchased were (l-r) orange attack, cool blue and solar flare, solar flare being the one I wore out!
Maybelline Color Show - €4.49 each (Boots)
The final thing I bought was an eyebrow pencil. I've been in desperate need of one for the past while and I finally got around to buying one. It's Rimmel so I automatically love it and it is probably the best eyebrow pencil I have ever bought. It goes on really well and it's easy to get a nice shape from it. The shade is 001 Dark Brown and it's actually a really natural shade. It's very reasonably priced as well at €5.49! If I had to buy one thing again it would definitely be this eyebrow pencil!

So that was my mini haul! I didn't get too much considering what I could have spent. Oh and a quick update on my Mothers Day post, my mam loved her gifts! She was delighted with them and really wasn't expecting it. At least I know they'll be put to good use and most of the stuff is already in her suitcase, which is always a good sign!
