Blogging Made Me Do It: Boots 3 for 2

Since becoming a beauty blogger, I have purchased so many items, whether that’s makeup, skincare, haircare, brushes etc etc, the list literally goes on. I love reading reviews on other blogs and a lot of the time, these spur me on to make purchases I wouldn’t normally.

Not that I’m complaining, I’ve discovered some of my favourites products, I now couldn’t live without from the blogging community. I also love buying out new things and trying them for myself to review here on my blog, so that’s my justification behind my spur of the moment purchases a lot of the time.

A few minute walk round the corner from where I work is a huge Boots, it’s on an industrial estate so it’s always quiet. The makeup section in there includes all the high street brands that Boots stock, and the stands themselves are always fully stocked with in tact testers and unopened products. They also have a huge skincare range including the high end brands. It’s a dream come true I tell you.

This dream come true however does mean that I literally can’t help myself from popping in on a regular basis on my lunch hour and finding all these new items I’ve been hearing about on the blogosphere.

Earlier this week was no different, when I saw they had 3 for 2 across all makeup brands my eyes lit up and I started watching various bits straight away. I controlled myself this time and only actually bought 3 things – all of which were inspired by reviews I had read this week from fellow bloggers.

> L’Oreal Infillable 24 Hour Matte Foundation

> Soap & Glory Solar Powder 

> MaxFactor Creme Puff Blush

I’m sure reviews of these will be up very soon! Have you tried any of these products? Let me know your thoughts! What’s the most recent blogging inspired purchase you’ve made?
