Mini Boots Haul

Big Bang Apocalips|Wake Me Up Foundation| Lash Accelerator Mascara

Hello to all my blogging readers, if you've stayed with my blog then i'd like to thank you all from the bottom of my heart. Today's post will be a review well more of a little haul of what i've bought this week. Its not much but I thought i'd do a post and show you anyways. Limited myself and only bought 3 makeup/beauty items and 2 items of clothing.. saving myself for my shopping spree next week.

Boots: So i am a boots addict, i would shop in here everyday in fact i used to when i used to work near a boots even if its for dinner or for makeup they have everything!

So I finally jumped on the Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquer bandwagon and purchased one of them in the shad 400 Big Bang. This shade is a vibrant red colour very similar to this shade that Kim Kardashian was pictured wearing. I love the red glossy lip look, and this does just that, the glossy side staying for a while before eventually turning to a matte colour on the lips. But, Hey there's nothing wrong with adding a bit of your own gloss to get the glamorous look. This retailed for £5.99 but came under the 3 for 2 offer so was technically my freebie of the day.

The next thing I purchased was a 5th bottle of my all time favourite foundation Rimmel Wake Me Up in the shade 100 Ivory. As mentioned in a previous post found here. This foundation is my all time favourite, i use it every season and almost every day of the year. I like to change my shades from 110 True ivory to 100 Ivory when the weathers warming up a bit more to lighten the colour of my skin, as i find it easy to contour and highlight with a lighter foundation. I love this product so much. This retails for around £8.99 but if you catch it at asda at the moment its only £5 everything Rimmel is under £5 how frickin good is that?

The last product I bought was the Rimmel Lash Accelerator Endless Mascara I've heard many good raves and reviews about this product. Especially about the fibers in this mascara that enhance your lashes and in effect 'add extra hairs' to your lashes making them look fuller and longer. Im really into the applicator of this mascara, im quite a huge fan of plastic applicators especially for creating length and definition too my lashes and this one does just that. I've only tested it twice at the moment as I have quite a few mascaras that im already using at the moment, but I can't wait to give this one a proper whirl.

Do you have any favourite Rimmel products? Or any new products you've tried lately and think they live up to their hype?

Much Love Sophie


  1. I really want to try rimmel wake me up foundation, and if it's £5 at asda i might just have to pop down there and get some! That shade of lip colour is lovely!

    1. You should definitely try the foundation its really good for any type of skin, and such a bargain at the moment!! xx

    2. I will be getting it then :) at the moment i am using Bourjois healthy mix foundation, but i am always switching foundations. I was using collection 2000 lasting perfection for ages because i liked that it wasn't a heavy foundation and stayed on for ages and covered my blemishes. xx

    3. I've always wanted to try the Bourjois healthy mix one how do you find it ? I use their 123 Picture Perfect one mainly xx

    4. I like it but the only thing is it doesn't seem to stay on long so i normally just wear it on days when i dont put much make up on but i would say it would be more of a summer founation. But if i am going out for the day i would use revlon photo ready foundation, matches really well with my skin :) or the collection 2000 one lol xx

  2. I've heard so much hype about the Apocolips lately, I might just have to try it out!(:
