Mini Boots Haul

I did a little bit of shopping yesterday and no shopping trip is complete without going into Boots, and I picked up a few things, so I just thought I'd show you all what I picked up! I never leave town without going into Boots, but I made an even bigger effort as they have an amazing deal on La Roche-Posay with 2 for £15 and never one to pass up a bargain, I just had to get the deal. All links are in the first caption! 

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo     //     La Roche-Posay Effaclar     //     Max Factor Flash Lash Effect Mascara     //    
Max Factor Colour Elixir Lipstick in Ruby Tuesday     //     Collection 2000 lasting Perfection Concealer

La Roche-Posay Effaclar

This is a purifying foaming gel for oily sensitive skin. My skin isn't very oily, but it is incredibly sensitive and I've heard so many amazing things about this, so I really want to try it.  It's soap and colorant free so comes out as a clear liquid that isn't too thick. Normally, I find with these unperfumed skin care, they can smell a bit off putting, but this has a nice fresh smell to it and I can't wait to try this out. 

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo

This is a product I am really excited to try as I've heard incredible things about, so when I've had a proper chance to check it out, I'll throw in my two cents worth and do a review! Like with the gel, it comes out as a clear liquid and smells really fresh. I've had a really bad break out recently due to the horrible changing weather and lots of artificial heat dries out my skin, and the Effaclar Duo targets blemishes, so I'm hoping this will clear up the problem. 

Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer in Fair (1) 
I'm going to assume that you have all already heard of this product as it really is regarded as a cult holy grail product within the blogesphere. I was a little worried that I'd be disappointed with this product as it has been hyped so much, but the hype is completely worth it! I picked the lightest shade as I have very light skin ans it is a perfect match. It doesn't appear caked on or overdone and covers blemishes and marks really well. I will definitely be repurchasing. I can't believe it has taken me this long to pick it up!

Max Factor Flash Lash Effect Mascara in Black

This is my favourite ever mascara. I've tried so many different mascaras from Benefit to Rimmel and I'm still a firm fan of Max Factor. I picked in up in Black and as soon as my current one is finished I'll be using it. It always gives me really long lashes that aren't clumped together and are spread out. I normally layer it on 2-3 times and it lasts all day and dries really quickly. 


Max Factor Colour Elixir Lipstick in Ruby Tuesday (715)

I'm a massive fan of red lipstick and I love the formula of the Max Factor Elixir lipsticks. They always are really moisturizing and long lasting and I don't have to apply a lip pencil as they stay in place. After I apply it, I always use blotting paper to blot it and then it lasts normally for 4-5 hours without me having to top it up, so I can't wait to wear this. 


What do you think of my haul; any products you love/hate?

  3. I love boots! I've tried the collection 2000 concealer and really dislike it though, I find that it looks quite cakey under the eyes, which is where I need to conceal the most! I do LOVE max factor mascaras though!

    I would love it if you guys would check out my blog! Would make my day if you followed too :D
