Boots Haul (Maybelline Heavy with a bit of Max Factor too)
It’s been a little while since I did a Boots haul, so a few weeks ago I popped along to Boots to see what was on offer. I was immediately pulled-in by the Maybelline stand, which had so many new launches that I wanted to try. There’s also the newest Max Factor foundation which I tried on my hand and immediately had to buy! Boots are great for promotions and at this time there was a 3for2 on, so that made it a little more justifiable…
I do love a good base product, so I picked up three base bits, starting with the gorgeous Maybelline Brightening Creamy Concealer (£4.99 here – link) which really is as it sounds – it gives a light and creamy coverage that can be built-up to a higher level, making it ideal for both spots and eye bags. Next is the Maybelline Master Camo Correcting Pen (£8.99 here – link) which comes in four shades and I went for green to target redness. I can’t say I’ve reached for it that much, but I haven’t had as much redness to contend with recently so it might be more to do with that as I haven’t reached for any correctors. It has a soft applicator head which technically means you can apply and blend in one go, but I prefer to follow with a sponge. The Max Factor Healthy Skin Harmony Foundation (£11.99 here – link – usually £14.99) looks and sounds amazing and I was so excited to try, but annoyingly the palest shade is still too dark and a fraction too warm, so it would be quite tricky to pull off, even with the use of a lightener. It has a lovely texture with fairly decent coverage, so as long as you’re not super pale like me, you should be fine.
I’ve spoken about the amazing Maybelline Master Precise Liquid Eyeliner (£5.99 here – link) in my September Love List and it really is phenomenal, providing high pigmentation in an almost foolproof application, this will be one of those products I always keep handy, especially at such a fantastic price. The final product is the Maybelline Brow Tattoo Longlasting Tint (£12.99 here – link) which is the only product I haven’t tried so far, and this is because I need to get my brows shaped so I have a shape to work with when applying. I’ll update you with how I get on, although I am slightly nervous as it’s a tint that apparently lasts for a good few days, so presumably if you apply it incorrectly, you’re stuck with a dodgy shape! If applied correctly though (and apparently it’s pretty easy) then this could be a real game-changer.
