I made the most of the 3 for 2 offer in Boots last week and picked up some things I have been wanting for a while. I'm not the kind of person to buy tons of make up. I'll only invest in something that I know I will use!

I've never used a cream eye shadow before but since I've heard so many good things about the Maybelline ones I decided to go ahead and get one. I used my Boots points to get the Maybelline Colour Tattoo 24hr in On and On Bronze. The colour is gorgeous and is so smooth. I was a bit sceptical to begin with since I have extremely hooded lids and I thought the colour would just not last. However this bad boy is one tough cookie. I first apply it all over and make sure I let it dry for a few minutes. Then it stays put throughout the day. You get loads of product too and for £4.99 you can't go wrong. My only gripe is that the other colours are a bit 'wishy washy', and the UK didn't get Pomegranate Punk which is so pretty :(. I just wish there were more neutrals, like Mac's Paint Pot in Bare Study and Painterly etc.

I completely ran out of mascara a couple of weeks back and was using a little sample size of a No7 one, which wasn't quite cutting it. There's so many mascaras out on the market now I just didn't know which one to choose. But I had heard so many good reviews on the L'oreal Telescopic False Lash Mascara. In all honesty I love this thing. The wand really separates and coats each lash. Perfect!

Next up is the infamous Revlon Lip Butters. Since my teeth are slowly getting straighter (thanks to Invisalign) I have decided to delve into the realm of lipsticks. After all the hype I knew I had to go on a swatching spree in Boots. The one I went to all the testers were unopened, fabulous! I only picked up two but I will definitely going back for more, plus I really want to try the L'oreal Caresse Sheer Lipsticks. Anyways the two lip butters I picked up were Tutti Frutti and Macaroon. One word: Love. They're amazing and so moisturising. If you have no yet tried these, please do!
