Latest Boots and Clinique Haul!

I had a day off yesterday and went shopping with my mum. We went to Dundrum which is right beside my house. 

I needed a few things in Boots and I always like to buy there due to the Advantage Points. Even more importantly, as I do actuarial exams, I am technically a student which means student card! :) A student travel card gives you 10% off all Boots stock (except prescriptions I think), that includes Estee Lauder, Lancome, Clinique, etc which I am luckily enough to have stocked in mine. You also get points on the balance. 

I got Colorsport eyebrow dye in Dark Brown. I dye my eyebrows every few weeks since they are naturally light blonde. I like a slightly stronger eyebrow look so I use this. It's so easy to use, just mix it up, pop it on and 10 mins later, your brows are darker. 

I love big hair and since my John Frieda just ran out, I decided to try out a new brand - Umberto Giannini Volume Shampoo. The bottle is definitely really pretty!

I saw the new Barry M Confetti Nail Paint and decided to pick it up as I love nail trends. Haven't tried it yet. 

Since there was buy more, get one half price, I also picked up the Barry M sharpener. I saw a review of this on Makeup Monster's blog ( so I thought I would try it.

For skincare, I like to use brands like Clinique and Estee Lauder. This is my second tub of Day Wear, it has a mild cucumbery smell which is quite pleasant. I felt I needed something stronger than the Clinique Dramatically Different moisturiser so I moved to this. I quite like it so far but wouldn't be adverse to trying something new next time. 

Clinique's Take the Day Off is my favourite eye make up remover. I wear a lot of mascara and eyeliner and I find this is best at taking it all off. I have tried other brands but nothing seems to work as well as this. This was actually bought in House of Fraser as they had a Clinique promotion on. If you bought two items, you got this free gift. My mum wanted a cleanser and kindly let me have the gift. I love these gifts as I travel a lot for work, so it's brilliant to have these sizes in my travel bag. 

Finally, I repurchased the No7 Beautiful Skin Cleansing Balm. It works really nicely with my Clarisonic and I had a 6.50 off No7 skincare voucher so it didn't cost very much!

I have to say, I love buying make up and skincare when out shopping. No issues about whether they have it in your size or if it fits. What's your favourite type of shopping?



  1. This is without a doubt my favourite type of shopping! This an accessories. There are some lovely things there, the eyebrow dyes are so handy, one of my sisters-in-law swears by them. I haven't tried the confetti nail polish yet either, but I have used Umberto Gian-thingy in the past and I used to love the shampoos x

  2. This is actually the first UG item I've bought. Always thought it looked a bit expensive but decided to try something different! :)
