Spring Boots Haul (& Giveaway)

It happens to be the best of us, we nip into Boots with the intention of picking up just one or two things and end up with a basket full. I wasn't quite so bad this time, I still ended up leaving with a slightly lighter purse last week but I picked up what I consider to be some Spring essentials. That's the story I'm stickin' to, anyway!

I've already mentioned the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipsticks (read the full review here) last week, which were what I went in to intentionally buy before being drawn in by a few other bits. I picked up a pretty coral peach, Peach Club, and a beautiful bright fuschia, Ole Flamingo, both of which I know I'll be wearing a lot come the warmer months. They're so long lasting and are a gorgeous formula, I really can't get enough of them. I also picked up the Real Techniques Setting Brush which I bought to use with my Vichy Dermablend setting powder. This little brush allows me to use it on smaller areas of the face where I need it more.

I finally caved and bought a couple of the latest releases from No7. I've had my eye on the Pop & Glow Cream Blush sticks for a while and decided to get the pretty Mango Sorbet shade as it's more of a 'me' shade. I also picked up the Instant Radiance Highlighter Stick to help me get that pretty summer glow look. With the No7 buys I also got a free gift, but I'm giving that away to one of my lovely readers! It was a free gift for spending over a certain amount so only something little really, but if you'd like to be in the running to win it, please enter using the Rafflecopter form below. You just need to be following through Bloglovin' to be entered, and please, no professional competition entries!
