If you’re like me, you will be completely unprepared for Mother’s Day. Or Christmas. Or birthdays. Or anniversaries…any important date basically. Mother’s Day seems to creep up on me every year and I am left panic buying anything I can get my hands on. But this year I am going to get major brownie points – thanks to Boots. They sent me these brilliant gift sets and therefore Little Anne won’t go empty handed (I will be getting her something else as well, I’m not a total cheapskate!) Read on to see what’s included in these Mother’s Day gift ideas box sets.
2015 marked the 30th anniversary of the iconic Color Riche range which resulted in the beautiful L’Oréal Paris Color Riche 30 Years Lipstick Collection. I bought these lipsticks in February (that must be a record) but completely forgot to blog about them *slaps wrist*.
L’Oréal Paris Color Riche 30 Years Lipstick Collection
There are lots of shades in the range but I picked these 5 as they stood out to me as the colours from which I would get the most wear over different seasons. The colours I chose, from left to right, were:
130 Androgyne (matte) – A pretty, chalky baby pink that looks amazing with a smokey eye.
132 Magnolia Irreverence (satin) – A striking fuchsia pink with a blue base.
134 Rose Royale (satin) – A slightly softer, but still very eye-catching, pink.
229 Cliché Mania (matte) – A true orange lipstick that I was nervous to wear but looks beautiful on, especially in the summer.
430 Mon Jules (matte) – A dark berry red that has really come into its own now the weather is colder.
My second part of my US beauty haul from New York is now live. This covers drugstore items from Walgreens, CVS, Duane Reade as well as other bits from Chinatown, Victoria’s Secrets and Bath & Body Works. I did so much research before I went to find the best things to buy, but ended up grabbing lots of things that caught me eye as well. So many treats!
My first video in this series was a Sephora haul which you can find HERE. SO many amazing products that I’ve been dreaming about owning for months (if not years!)
Let me know your US beauty recommendations in the comments, as I’m already building my list for next time!
Every month I try to select my favourite products and items: the things I’ve been reaching for a lot more than others and want to recommend. These posts are mini-reviews and I really enjoy doing them – it’s interesting to see how my tastes and uses change over the months!
Let’s crack on with my April favourites, shall we?
