Mini Boots Haul | May 2014

Oh Boots and your sneaky 3 for 2. You know the drill, go in for face wipes, come out with - well - everything else. So I thought I'd show you a few of the bits I picked up because they'll do doubt be reviewed in the coming weeks so it's like a sneak peek at what'll be on the blog in due course!

First up, L'Oreal's Miss Manga mascara. You may be thinking, but you had this in your On Trial post this month - yes, yes I did but this it the waterproof version. Crazy, I know. I'd seen Anna use it and, as someone who doesn't really use waterproof mascaras, I thought I'd give it a go. I didn't think it was out yet so when I spotted it, it went straight in my basket. I've tried it a couple of times and my only issue is that it seems to my irritating my eyes when I wear my contact lenses. Not sure if that's the mascara or my eyes are just playing up - anyone else had this problem? 

Again, another blogger induced purchase in the form of Essie's Spin the Bottle polish. This time, I place the blame with Kate who's Instagram picture of her talons instantly made me lust over this shade. It's such a pretty pink that leans a little peach which I really like. I have a feeling this could be my ideal pink-nude. Watch this space.

And finally, my favourite of the bunch - Max Factor Facefinity All Day Primer. When Adrienne posted about this on The Sunday Girl I was really intrigued. She really raved about it and said it was in high demand during Fashion Week - if it's could enough for the catwalk, well, I'm not gonna turn it down! Again, I didn't think it was out yet so when I saw it in store my eyes lit up and I grabbed the very last one. What? It was fate, surely?

As I said, I'll no doubt review these at some point so keep your eyes peeled and follow me on bloglovin' to make sure you don't miss it!

Have you tried any of these?

  1. Ohh such a lovely nail polish colour! I'm using the miss manga as well - I swear sometimes it's amazing and sometimes it just clumps like crazy! A bit hit and miss for me :)

  2. I'm totally with you on the mascara at the moment. Sometimes I love it, other times it clumps at the root - really strange! Will continue testing! x
