Boots & Asos Haul – August 2017

It was pay-day last week so I decided to treat myself to both stuff from ASOS & Boots. I spent way too much on clothes last month I have decided that I will buy no more clothes and limit my unnecessary spending this month.


Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Lipsticks

I saw this on Soph Does Nails and it looked incredible so I rushed to buy the Moca shade, her skin tone is completely different to mine so I have no idea whether this will suit me but I will probably do a review in due course.  It was buy one get one half price in Boots when I ordered so I managed to get a second one for half the price and I picked up the shade Pink Bliss, which seems to be more of my usual lipstick shade.  These are £5.99 per lipstick when the deal is not on.


Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer

I have only ever heard good things about this concealer so when I was ordering from Boots I decided to pick it up.  I picked it up in the shade fair shade 1.  I hope that this is not too fair for my skin, if so, then I am sure it will be fine in the winter months.  This was £4.19 and I have high hopes for it.


Collection Primed & Ready Powdered by Witch Invisible Setting Powder

You may remember from my Maybelline foundation first impressions post that I wanted to try a setting powder with the foundation that I was trying out, so this invisible one jumped out at me when I was browsing the Boots website and it found its way into my basket.  The powder was £3.99 which is part of the reason it jumped out at me and it claims to tackle blemishes. I am looking forward to giving it ago before a right my full review on the foundation.


Piz Buin Allergy Sun Sensitive Face Cream SPF30

This is my favourite SPF and I wear it every day. My current one, which I first bought for Mexico is now running low so I decided that I needed a backup for when it does actually run out.  I also need to check whether they do sell these in the winter months otherwise I will be placing another order and very sharp-ish.  It is £6.00 at Boots and I think possible cheaper at Superdrug with their deals however, I was ordering for Boots so just paying a little more seemed reasonable.




I love ASOS at the minute and have placed a few orders in the last few weeks so this haul isn’t exactly big. I love the fact that you can put in your height and weight for certain products and it tells you the best size to purchase.  I have not had any trouble with this so far, which is great because I hate returning stuff.

A selection of earings

I had to take my piercings all out for the MRI, which was a pain but it also reflected that I don’t actually wear earings in my lobes enough. I wear them at Christmas time and when I think that the holes are actually closing up but it made me decide that I want to start wearing them more.  I decided to order some from ASOS as I was ordering anyway and I can’t wait to actually put these in. The set of 8 studs was £8.00 where as the heart set £5.00 and the star stud which I am hoping will look good in my forward helix was £6.00.


Barbie Pajamas

I actually wanted the other set of Barbie Pajamas that ASOS sell for the holiday to Mexico back in May.  They have long trousers so I decided that they would stop the bug bites however, I never got around to ordering.  I noticed that they now sell short PJ’s too and they looked so good so I had to order.  These were £22.00 so slightly more than what I would normally spend on Primark but these will probably be the only short Pj’s that I buy for a while. I also hope that they last longer than the Primark ones I usually purchase.  I bought these in an XS (UK size 4-6) and as you can see these are true to size and not too tight for PJ’s.  (Sorry for the bad photo, it’s the only kind of full size mirror I have in the flat.)

#FaceTheDay Collection Palette

It is Friday again, sorry if this post seems rushed I have had such a busy week as I had my MRI and my boyfriend went to Estonia at 3am this morning, so I am hoping that this strong black coffee will get me through today.  I also have a free weekend planned so hopefully I will be able to catch up on blog posts.

I picked up the #FaceTheDay Collection Palette in Boots a couple of months ago.  It is not what I had gone into the store to purchase nor had I read any reviews of it, I just happened to fall upon it and ended up purchasing!  It was a bargain at £3.99 and I have started using it regularly.

What it claims: ‘Get ready to #FaceTheDay with this essential palette that includes a highlighter, blusher, bronzer and four blendable powder eyeshadows.

Choose from 4 shimmering neutral and brown eyeshadows, a matte bronzer, shimmering pink blusher and a neutral highlighter.

It allows you to get a professional make-up look with just one palette and transform your make-up from day to night.’

Okay, so I am not sure if it does really give you a professional make up look but the matte bronzer is perfect for my skin tone and I have started wearing this daily.  I have also received compliments when wearing the highlighter – it is neutral as it claims so is perfect for work.  I don’t wear the highlighter or the blusher every day as I have a couple that I switch between but I do like them a lot.  I wasn’t expecting a lot for £3.99 but I am so impressed.

I will admit that I do not wear eye shadow on a daily basis and therefore, I cannot comment on the eye shadow shades yet.  They do look good though so my aim is to make a conscious effect to wear them more and provide a second review shortly!


  • It is very affordable at £3.99 per palette
  • It is accessible as can be purchased at Boots
  • A good range of neural colours in the palatte for every day looks
  • Perfect for work



  • I am a beginner with make up so cannot really comment on the quality of the product.


Overall I love the palatte and wear some of it almost daily! It was such a bargain purchase at £3.99 and for that price I would recommend that you give it ago! If you hate it or think that the quality is really bad it doesn’t matter too much.

Love, Minnie x
