Bits&pieces from Boots


Boots had their cheeky 3 for 2 on, so I thought I'd make the most of it and pop in and pick up some bits and pieces. 

Rimmel Lipstick £5.99 (here)    //    Rimmel 1000 kisses lip tint £5.49 (here)    //    Rimmel Apocalips in stella £5.99 (here)
As you probably all know, I'm massively into bright red lips, even for everyday. I spotted this Rimmel Kate Moss lipstick in 22 and knew I had to pick it up.  I've heard so much about lip tints recently, so decided to pink up this one in 120 Timeless Tango. On one side is the product and the other is a balm. I have the apocalips in big bang and thought it looked lonely, so I decided to pick up stella as well!

Batiste dry shampoo £4.99 (here)   //    Tresemme touchable finish hairspray £5.99 (here)   //    Toni&Guy Cleanse shampoo £5.99 (here)
I decided to take full advantage of the 3 for 2 and buy the full size Batiste as it just stays in my room. I never take even the small ones on the go. Hairspray as I need some hairspray haha...and I find Tresemme have the best hairsprays; they brush out really nicely and keep my hair in place all day. If you read my empties, then you'd have seen I ran out of my favourite shampoo, so this was simply a repurchase. 

I didn't want to link it as it was so rubbish :( (it was £1.30)
Warning: Do not buy this! This is rubbish. It dyes the polish into your nail and all around your nail on your skin. Used it a few times and it was just going worse and worse and staining my fingers to the point where even after I scrubbed at them the colour was still on my skin. I've had to chuck it out. Tried to save some money and buy a cheap nail polish remover, when will I learn?!

All reviews to follow shortly!

Have you taken advantage of boots 3 for 2?

I also wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone for how well received my last post was! It really made me smile and meant a lot.

  2. I love 3 for 2. I use it when I get all my nail varnishes.

    I find any "conditioning" nail polish remover is pants because they don't put the harsh chemicals in that are needed to remove all the gunk - I stay away from them all together now :)

    I have this dry shampoo, its awesome right?

  6. Oh, I would love any store in Germany to have these 3 for 2 offers - they're so cool! :)

    All the products you got look lovely; especially the red lip items are right up my street, as well. :) I've never heard of the Rimmel 1000 Kisses Lip Tint, though. Would you mind doing a review about it? :)

  16. In complete agreement about the nail polish remover, not even that, the caps completely messed up. It cracked and nail polish leaked into my drawer. I don't even want to get started on the amount of stuff it ruined. Eurgh!

    1. Yeah I get what you mean, if you twirl it tight it just goes completely loose again, so strange! Such a waste of money awww :( x

  21. Thanks for the comment. Lovely words!

    I have to agree with you about that nail stuff. It's naff, isn't it? I ended up with fuschia coloured nails for about three days after using it to get the polish off. Glad you're warning people!

  40. Oh girl - I got stung by that conditioning nail polish remover too!! Isn't it rubbish? It made my skin feel super weird AND took so much to remove my polish that my nail felt MORE dehydrated than usual after using it! Totally disappointing buy - I'm glad I'm not the only one!! Also glad I stumbled across your blog - followed!
