In my shopping bag: Bourjois & Rimmel purchases

 Bourjois 1 Seconde instant nail polish remover, Healthy Mix concealer (52) & Volume Clubbing Black Jack mascara 
 Free Sunglasses with any 3 Bourjois purchases (Boots Stores)
Rimmel Wake me Up Foundation (200 Soft Beige)

Still well within the grips of pauperism. is that a word? Anyway, not having the spare cash at the moment to splash out on high end make-up, I tottered down to Boots in search of some baragins. And bargains I found....
All Bourjois cosmetics were 3 for 2, if you take advantage of this offer there are also a free pair of sunglasses thrown in, lovely. In need of my much beloved Volume clubbin' mascara after mine dried out I spotted the new "Black Jack" version of my old fave. At £7.99 It's the same price & brush wand as the original but this formula has tiny golden flecks added to the mix. anything with a little shimmer is always a winner in my eyes! 
I have been using Collection 2000's lasting perfection concealer for some time now, I do really like it but once it had dried up, like the fickle cosmetic junkie I am, I went in search of something new. After a recommendation from Megan of Lips so Facto I decided to give the Bourjois Healthy Mix concealer (£7.49) a go,  I do love the Healthy Mix Serum foundation so I  have high hopes for this! 
I grabbed another Bourjois 1 seconde Nail polish remover pot as my freebie ( Normal price £4.99). I already have one of these for my own use but I think it's fantastic and am happy to have another to add to my manicure kit for work. 
As I mentioned before, 3 Bourjois purchases in Boots and you get a free pair of sunglasses in this very cute case (pictured above) I was pleasantly surprised to find I actually like the style & shape, waheyyy! Just need some sun now to be able to use them!
I had a couple of free samples in various magazines of the new Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation, after hearing great things about the product I ripped open one of the sachets to see what all the fuss is about. It was love at first sight. The finish is very flawless & radiant, It gives an instant lift and glow to the skin and has a decent amount of coverage, whats not to love ehy? I liked it that much that I used both the samples and shed a little tear when they ran out. Not really but it is very unlike me to stray from my BareMinerals or Healthy Mix Serum foundations, but gotta be said I am secretly enjoying my little fling with Rimmel Wake Me Up. I paid £6.99 in Boots and am in the colour 200 Soft Beige. RRP £8.99.
