Boots Points Purchases

January 09, 2014

With Christmas over and my Boots card loaded with a load of points after the Christmas present buying, I thought i'd treat myself to a few bits with my points as a New Year present to myself. 
YSL Rouge Volupte Shine Lipstick - Boots (£24), Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation - Boots (£8.99), Real Techniques Setting Brush - Boots (£8.99)

As I had managed to accumulate almost £50 in Boots points, I didn't want to spend it on a load of random bits and bobs like I had been previously, so I thought i'd save them up and buy myself some things I wouldn't normally spend my own money on.

The first product is probably my splurge of them all and that is the YSL Rouge Volupte Shine Lipstick. I picked this up in the shade '18- Prune in Fire', which is the perfect name for this deep plum shade. As soon as I swatched this on the back of my hand I knew that I had to have it, the formula is beautiful with a glossy shine to the lipstick that I can tell won't dry my lips out throughout the day and will just look beautiful. 

The next product I picked up was the Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation, now i've had my eye on this foundation for a while and i'd been really undecided about purchasing it, but after giving it a swatch I kind of fell in love with the consistency of the formula and I think it's one i'll really get on with. 

Lastly, I decided to bite the bullet and pick up the Real Techniques Setting Brush as i've wanted this brush for such a long time and after not getting it for Christmas I couldn't wait any longer. I can't wait to start using this, it's so weird how you can get so excited over a makeup brush!

So that is everything I bought with my Boots points and i'm so glad I waited and saved up my points as these purchases feel a little bit more special.

Have you been spending your Boots points? What have you bought with them?

  1. I really can't decide what to spend my points on! I've managed to get around £40 worth but I wear minimal makeup in the day so I don't want to splash out on something that won't get used. I think perfume could be my points splurge :)

    1. See i'm exactly the same. Maybe have a little hunt on the Boots website and see if there is any skincare or bits and bobs you've had your eye on for a while. Perfume could be a really good one actually! x

  4. I'm really curious about how the lipstick looks on lips, the shade looks beautiful in the bullet. This whole points thing makes me want to move to the UK even more.

  12. I love the YSL lipsticks, their formulas are amazing and the packaging is so luxurious. Great picks!

    I love the smell of the skin tonic, it is amazing. I love the cleanse & polish but I'm more of a balm girl.

  13. I thought I saved up loads of Boots points then turned out I only have £1.03. It was such a sad time.
    I love the shade 18 of the YSL Rouge Volupté that you picked up though. I swatched it before and it is beautiful.
