Big Boots and US goodies haul

It's been a while since my last big haul. I've been trying not to buy too many beauty products and use up ones that I have, but after hearing that the Boots buy 1 get 1 half price deal on make up was due to end soon (Thanks Alice for the heads up), I thought it was time to make the most of the offer!

I've also been lucky enough to have a work friend visit New York, who very kindly bought me a few bits back from Sephora that have been on my wishlist for ages. 

So, what did I get? 

US goodies:

Tarte Amazonian clay blush in Glisten - This is a soft, shimmery pinky/peach blush from US brand Tarte. I had wanted one of these for ages, so I have to confess to swatching it immediately when it was given to me at work the other day!

Sephora Moonshadow baked eyeshadow palette - I've heard great things about Sephora's own brand, so after many hours on the site, I asked for one of their baked shadow palettes. Containing 10 baked eye shadows, they're highly pigmented and so versatile! 


Dior BB cream - After scraping out the pot of my mini sample, I knew I had to get this BB cream. The lightest shade is actually light (yay!) and I love the texture.

Bourjois volume glamour coloured mascaras - A dupe for the new Chanel coloured mascaras that are launching, I thought these Bourjois ones would be fun to add to the tips of my lashes for a splash of colour over the summer.

No7 extravagant volume mascara and stay perfect liner - I've not tried much from Boots own makeup lines so wanted to give one of their mascaras a try. This one promises to give the most volume, so fingers crossed it delivers!

Barry M limited edition nail polish - another Barry M polish to add to the collection, in my favourite hot pink shade.

No7 BB cream for lips - curiosity got the best of me with this buy. Turns out it's pretty much just standard lip gloss in a tube, but I like the shade! 

Maybelline lipsticks 902 and 030 - although these both look super vibrant in the tube, one is a hot fushia shade and the other is a very sheer, shimmery pink. I might try them both layered over each other, or use the sheer shade in the day and the hot pink at night. 

Have you tried any of these products? Anything you'd like to see reviewed first?
