No visit into town is complete without a trip to BOOTS! I was not happy at all to see that '17' had a '3 for the price of 2' offer on...because it meant I had to buy things...Oh, why must I fall into this consumer trap every.single.time!
This is what I bought!
This 17 Photo Flawless Skin Primer boasts of minimising pores (but it ain't no Porefessional) and prolonging foundation wear. I got this because (as silly as this may sound) I didn't want to use Porefessional from Benefit every single I applied make-up. I'm going to have this for those days where I don't really want to make too much of an effort but make-up is necessary. It says at the back of this primer that it can be worn on its own but I've never been a fan of wearing primer on its own so I won't be doing that. It has a lovely feel to it and it does minimise pores (slightly) so I think my £4.99 was well spent.
I also got this Berry Crush lipstain. It has a lipstain on one side and a balm containing Vitamin C to keep your lips hydrated on the other other side. I tried it on in the shop and fell in love! I have been looking for a new stain because I have been using Benetint for months now and it's always nice to have a change. This is more of a plum colour and richer than Benetint but it doesn't last as long so I have to keep topping it up but I knew what I was paying for.
I love this new Instant Glow Bronze that 17 have come out with in their summer range. It contains a sponge with it but I will be using a brush because I find the application is a lot easier. The sheen and glitter is gorgeous for summer evenings and I know I will be using this throughout the next few months.
17 is an under rated brand at times. They have some amazing products and always have deals on so keep an eye out next time you are shopping in your local drug store. I got all this for £10!
