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?
