Boots Points high end/drug store

Okay Im stuck. I have £106.00 on my boots advantage card. (I know wow how have I not spent it already?) I can’t decide what to buy thats why. So I need your help… would you either..

Buy five high end products like;

 A YSL lipstick, I’m really craving getting one of these, I mean look at the packaging I would feel amazing taking this out of my bag, and I love the colour ‘Rose Paris’ such a pretty shade. I have also been meaning to try the Benefit fake up concealer and the Origins plantscription concealer as I have read many the rave review on blogs and I need something to hide those pesky horrible dark circle’s under my eyes. The clinique high impact mascara has been featured on a lot of blogs too, the before and after pictures look amazing and it’s just what I want in a mascara high volumed full lashes. Lastly every girl and there blog has raved about the Chanel bronze universal, I actually went to a Selfridges counter in Manchester and was told by the girl ‘oh no you can’t buy this your to pale’ and so I walked off feeling rubbish, great customer service work right there for you! I have seen this work for a lot of people no matter there skin tone so I may just ignore her lovely advice and try it for myself!

Or then do I go a little crazy for the 3 for 2 on at the moment (although I’m not to sure when it stops running) and get some of the following…

Beautysets - Bootssss

I know I can get more than this for my money but this is just some of the things I have been lusting after lately. 

The revlon suede lipsticks have had a few mixed reviews, some saying there super drying and others saying there perfect so I need to invest and see what I think of them, they have lots of pretty pink colours to choose from and I can see myself picking up a couple. I like the look of the Number 7 extreme length mascara maybe it’s just the bright blue packaging? I like the look of the wand to, and I love applying a lengthening mascara first to fan out my lashes, so I want to see how this compares to others I have tried (my favourite being L’Oreal telescopic) Also from L’Oreal there newest foundation L’Oreal Lumi Magique & the matching primer. I crave glowing skin, I love the look of a foundation mixed with a highlighter so any foundation or primer that promises glowing skin and I will be all over wanting to try it out. The Rimmel scandaleyes eye liner in nude has done its rounds in the blogging world to, used as an inner corner eye brightener and I love the look it gives of waking up your tired eyes. I love collection’s lasting perfection concealer so It would be rude not to pick it up, one of the best high coverage affordable concealers around, don’t you agree? Talking of concealers I really want to try Revlons photoready concealer as it promises to be another full coverage concealer and they are my favourite type! I also love the Bourjois healthy mix serum foundation such a lovely finish and makes my skin look flawless, it feels lovely on the skin to, super super soft! The super cheap £1.99 Sinful colors nail varnishes look really lovely, there are SO many colours, I would’t know what to choose, but I have seen lots of glowing reviews on how opaque they are after one coat so can’t wait to give these a try! I could always do with a new powder and this is the most talked about of the lot Rimmel’s Stay Matte powder so would definitely have to give this a try as my skin gets super oily in my t zone and my make up slips off my face so soon even with a primer boohoo. Lastly I love the look of Soap & Glory’s lid stuff eyeshadow palette such lovely shades and I could do with a change from my Naked palettes!! 

Wow now I would love to know what you would do?

Please help a poor make up addicted girl out, Do i splurge out on high end, or get a lot more ‘drug store’ make up?

such a tough decision!!!

    I would definitely go for the high-end products! 🙂 The YSl lipsticks and the Benefit Fake Up are such amazing products so you can't go wrong with them! Alternatively, you can get some high-end and some drugstore goodies! :))
