First Impressions || TK Maxx & Boots

As-Salaamu Alaikum
Peace Be Upon You

— OH MY GOODNESS – This post has been sitting in my drafts inbox since May 2016!!! LOLOLOL, I’m going to be sharing it anyways because a) I worked on putting it together and b) I like the pictures, E N J O Y –

This post is a review of all the fun stuff I purchased in this video, check it out and show some love if you haven’t already.

First stop, TK Maxx. Right initially I wanted to pop into TK Maxx as I was in need of some falsies for a wedding. Unfortunately, they didn’t have any. A normal person with any self-restraint would pop out and move into the next store to grab a pair right? Nope, not me. I was insistent that I had to buy a few things, which I can clearly do without but I needed as it was the bargain of the month!!
And this is what I left the store with, not a single pair of lashes in sight!

JEAN PIERRE || Energising, 5 orange facial masks – cleared to £3.00
I’ve only tried this a couple of times and haven’t noticed a considerable difference. my skin looks a little brighter if anything, and like all sheet masks it feels super refreshing, so it felt lovely on. Not something I’m excited to use again if I’m honest, I just don’t think sheet masks are my thing.

NARS  ||  Nail Polish – Ecume – £4.99 (was £15.00) – 15ml
I was really excited to see this colour and couldn’t wait to add it into my small nail collection. It’s the perfect off-white colour to suit my skin tone and not look harsh. Two coats and the job is done.

NARS  || 3.1 Phillip Lim X Nars Nail Polish – Gold Viper – £4.99 (was £15.00) – 15ml
Now I was excited to see this colour in the range and picked it up asap! I love champagne from Models Owns and this colour has the same look and effect but in gold!! Perfect for my occasion wear moments

CHRISTIAN DIOR  ||  Rouge Diorific Haute Couture Long Wearing Lipstick – 032 Bewitching Red – £16.99 (was £26.99) – 3.5g
I love a good red lipstick, makes any glam look pop so I was ecstatic to this lipstick untouched in TK Maxx.

Paying a whooping total of only, £29.97 for the whole loot!! – That’s pretty much just me purchasing a Dior lipstick for the day and calling it quits, justification done!
I’ve noticed TK Maxx seem to be sharing old season YSL, Stila, Christian Dior, Nars and MAC makeup in there every so often, so don’t be afraid to pop in and have a look because you never know what you’ll come across.

Now having justified my mini splurge, I quickly popped into boots to grab a pair of lashes and ended up walking out with more than expected.

EYLURE  || Exaggerate Lashes – 143 – £6.99
SLEEK MAKEUP  ||  Matte Me Lip Gloss – Birthday Suit – £4.99
SLEEK MAKEUP  ||  Matte Me Lip Gloss – Velvet Teddy – £4.99
RIMMEL LONDON  ||  Exaggerate Automatic Lip Liner – Red Diva – £3.99
RIMMEL LONDON  ||  Exaggerate Automatic Lip Liner – Eastend Snob – £3.99
RIMMEL LONDON  ||  Exaggerate Automatic Lip Liner – Addiction – £3.99
RIMMEL LONDON  ||  Exaggerate Automatic Lip Liner – Obsession – £3.99

As always when in Boots, I always purchase them during an offer, so no I didn’t pay full RRP for these items.

The Rimmel lipliners are my go to drugstore liners – if you’ve followed me for a long time you’ll know that Red Diva is my thaannngg – the most perfect red you can own. Line your lips or wear it all over – it works great. An FYI – these liners are quite on the dry side, but I personally don’t mind too much as I know it’ll sit in place – just add a bit of vaseline to add hydration and shine.

Now I’m not the biggest fans of matte liquid lipsticks but I couldn’t resist these two colours by Sleek, love the plummy one especially for the colder months.

All in all, I’d say it’s a nice sporadic little haul that came about from today’s outing.

Until my next post xoxo
