Boots Mini Haul: L'Oreal Paris Make-upWednesday, 12 December 2012 13:32
I had a quick trip to Boots this morning as I wanted to see if I could find a darker red lipstick for the Christmas season. I knew that Boots are currently running an offer for a free gift when you spend £15 or more on L'Oreal make-up, so I purposely looked for my lipstick from the L'Oreal counter as I was eager to get my hands on that free gift!
The first item I bought was another shade of my beloved Rouge Caresse lipsticks, which I have reviewed previously here and absolutely love. The shade I chose was 'Aphrodite Scarlet', which is a really unique pinky-red shade that is really vibrant and just beautiful. The Rouge Caresse lipsticks are £8.19 from Boots.
Of course, the whole reason for the mini shopping trip was for my Christmas red lipstick! I have a Rimmel one that I love but I wanted something a little deeper for Christmas and this shade fits the bill. It is one of the L'Oreal Color Riche lipsticks and the shade is 'Red Passion'. I've had a sneaky try of this today and it looks fab and smells like Parma Violet sweets! The Color Riche lipsticks are £8.19 each from Boots.
Finally, here are the free goodies that came in the free gift box. It includes samples of foundation, BB cream and Revitalift cream, a full size Color Riche lipstick (a dark fuchsia colour), full size Volume Million Lashes Diamonds and a nail polish. I've wanted to try the mascara for so long and it retails for £12, so this free gift is just fabulous! The free goodies are worth around £28 which I think it excellent when you only have to spend £15 to receive it.
I will be reviewing some of the products, so watch this space! Have you tried any of them? What do you think?
