You know the story, you walk into Boots for one thing, spy a 3 for 2 offer currently running and then next thing you know your hands are possessed and there are three items sitting pride of place in your shopping basket. Whoops! Spotting the offer on L’Oreal was music to my ears as I already had my eyes firmly on the Color Riche Collection Exclusive Pure Reds in Julianne’s Pure Red. Previously owning the nude from Julianne (which FYI is one of my all-time favourite pinky/nude lipsticks) I had a funny feeling her take on a bold red would also be right up my street. A matte finish this orangey red is perfection and glides onto your lips to leave an intense layer of colour behind. Hydrating to apply, pop on straight from the bullet for a strong hit of colour or dab on with your finger for a lighter finish.
I could have left with just the lipstick but ya know, it would have been rude not to make the most of the offer ;) Surprisingly enough yet another lip crayon made it’s way home with me, completely unnecessary however too pretty to deny. The Glam Shine Balmy Gloss in 914 Fall for Watermelon is a wearable everyday shade that gives shine and shimmer to the lips. Ultra light on the lips this leaves a moisturised look that can be easily applied without a mirror. Finally, a shadow. Color Riche Mono Eyeshadow in 200 Nude is a bronzed beauty, blended out all over the lid or used with a socket colour this lasts all day without creasing and gives dimension to the eye. Now I just need to try and restrain myself from going back to Boots otherwise I can see another L’Oreal haul popping up soon…!
