Small Boots Haul

So I wanted a couple of things from boots, but when I get there I discover a £20 gift card in my purse! I was quite pleased because there was some more bits that I wanted to get. Its silly how much this small haul excites me, but its pretty much all inspired by beauty blogs so I'm hoping it all lives up to the hype! Here is what I got:

First up we have Oilatum. This has been recommended by Pixiwoo which is the main reason I got it. I have also ran out of my Eve Lom products so it was good timing. This is supposed to be quite a heavy cream, which is good for me because since I changed contraception my skin has been very dry, so lets see if this works!
Next up is a Barry M fine glitter dust. It is in number 15. It is just a white with lots of gold glitter in it. I got this so that I can recreate Xsparkages latest tutorial (the white swan). If you haven't checked out the tutorial I would really recommend it!
Then we have the Barry M Nail Effects. This has been sold out for soooo long that I had given up hope on it, but when I popped into Boots and they had it I know I had to snap it up. For those who don't know, it is one of those crackle polishes that shrink when you put it on top of another colour.
The last thing I got was a white nail polish. This is from 17 and is called Mini Skirt. I wanted a white polish to do my valentines day manicure. I would've got one from Barry M but they didn't have any on the stand so I settled for this one. Lets hope its not thin and streaky!
So that's the end of my haul. I can't wait to try it all out. Any of the latest 'must haves' tempting you?


  1. You'll have to let us know how the 17 polish works out! Despite it being so cheap and readily available, I've never tried it.

  2. It was ok, thin and streaky but it was ok after 3 coats!
