Boots haul | Going nude

The Boots 3 for 2 offer is a dangerous time for me, as i'm sure it is for many of you, especially this time as pretty much the whole store is included in this deal. I restrained myself and only purchased some makeup products, i might have to venture back though and hit up the skincare!

I was on the search for a new blusher to take me through the Spring months, and i've been wanting to attempt the nude lip without getting a case of the dreaded foundation lips look. With this is mind my purchases resulted in a definite nude/ natural theme.


For blush i opted for the Revlon Powder Blush in Racy Rose, which i was drawn to as it has no shimmer in it, and looked to be the perfect pink to add a subtle glow. I've been using this everyday since i brought it which must mean it was a good buy! It blends nicely on the skin, and can be built up to give the desired flush of colour.
Lip products have become my recent obsession, weather it be a lipstick, gloss, balm or any other kind of hybrid that gets invented- i want it! I've wanted to try the new Revlon Colourburst Matte and Lacquer balms since they hit the shelves, but i wanted to make sure i got a shade that bought something a bit different to my collection. I'd read a few reviews which claimed Matte balm Complex was the perfect nude, so i decided that was the shade i would opt for as a base for my nude lip. The final product falls into the lip hybrid catergory and it's the L'oreal L'extraordinaire Liquid Lipstick in the shade Rose Melody. I saw these featured in one of Fleur De Force's recent videos and felt i needed to try one! I brought this intending to use it either as a gloss to use over the Revlon Balm, or on its own for a natural hint of glossy colour. I've tried it both ways but it's more sheer than i expected after swatching it, so i'm still figuring out how to get the best results out of this one.

Has anyone else increased their makeup collection on the 3 for 2 offer?
