As usual my alter ego got the better of me when I went shopping the other day.
My aim in Boots was to pick up the Real Techniques brushes whilst they were still on 3 for 2 ( we both got the stippling brush and I also got the blush brush too)
However my evil alter ego dragged me over for ‘just a quick look’ at the nail varnishes and make up.
I spotted the elusive Max Factor Fantasy Fire nail varnish and to be honest I previously thought it wasn’t all that. But of course my evil twin loved it, and so did I when I tested it out!
Cue me being head over heels for the mini bottles and I suddenly had 3 in my basket. Naughty.
Fantasy Fire / Pretty in Pink / Silver
The Pretty in Pink is a replacement for a Natural Collection peach colour that I loved but it dried up.
It’s a gorgeous pastel colour that will be perfect for spring and summer ahead.
Fantasy Fire was a splurge buy but I’m in love already, got a whole post of this ready to go already!
Silver is a jelly like polish that has a silver effect but is a dirty silver, if you understand me!
I absolutely love ‘dirty metallics’ as I like to call them.
Perfect for day, night and any occasion in between.
I’m sure there will be posts on all of these soon!
As if my evil alter ego hadn’t already distracted me enough, I suddenly found myself with 3 Rimmel items in my basket too!
The Wake Me Up concealer was first in, me and M both loved the Wake Me Up foundation (review here) so the concealer was definitely high on my priority list.
Coral Queen from Rimmel seems to fit the bill and I’m hoping that it will be a hit in my make up bag!
Lastly I picked up a 1000 Kisses Lip Tint in Perpetual Plum.
I’ve always been put off by the hype surrounding these and the Revlon Lip Butters etc, but actually the consistency of the tint coming out of the pen at one end and the balm at the other was pretty good in my books.
I was impressed that the tint could be built up, and the balm felt pretty good and moisturising too.
Hopefully another hand bag staple, good job I’ve bought a new one 😉
Hope you enjoyed the post!
Do you have an evil alter ego who throws things in your basket when you’re not looking?? Ha!
