Scraping the (clearance) barrel...Friday, June 03, 2011
It's Friday :) and what a gorgeous day it has been! I am loving this hot weather and I hope you have been too! Loving the fact I have a natural tan although I have some very unsightly white bits now!
Now as I mentioned in a post earlier in the week that I had a little Boots haul on bank holiday Monday due to their great advantage points offer. I however didn't mention a couple of gems that I also picked up.
I was browsing the make up counters when I came across a little clearance shelf. I found this most un-usual as I've never seen a clearance shelf in Boots before, so once I got a little closer, I started to get quite giddy as before my eyes was tons of fab make up by brands such as Maybelline, Revlon, L'oreal etc all at £1/2.00!!
I had a good trawl through and got quite a few things, however I only picked three things up for myself ( the rest were for presents etc) I picked up a Revlon lipstick- Cherries in the snow £2.00, Bourjois Illuminantor- £2.00 and Revlon lip gloss in lilac pastille- £2.00.
I was amazed as I'm pretty sure the lilac pastille lip gloss was released not that long ago, I've never seen the Boujois illuminator before but for £2.00 it was a steal and the Revlon lipstick- Cherries in the snow for some reason brought Cheryl to my head?! I remember this being quite a cult colour and it reminds me a little of MAC's Impassioned.
For £2.00 each I did get a bargain and have saved myself probably about £15.00 or more if they were full priced. If you are in your local Boots then I'd maybe have an eye out for a little clearance shelf. I'm guessing that these are shades that have been discontinued but there's nothing wrong with them!
Hope you all have a lovely evening, my face is very pink tonight and feeling very hot! Oh dear!
