Boots Loyalty Points Mini Spree

I decided to splash a few of my ever growing Boots loyalty points this week, there were a few items that I had been eyeing up, and wanted in particular to get for my trip abroad at the end of the week!

Essie Gel Couture – Topcoat and Model Citizen (£9.99 Each – 2 for £14.99)

I’d normally turn to my gel lamp for giving me a manicure that will last for a trip away, but for some reason my lamp seems to have stopped curing polish properly and it can flake off in a few days! The New Essie Gel Couture like is normal polish promising to deliver a gel like shine without the lamp and a 14 day wear time. I found it hard choosing a colour and really wanted to see them in person but the stands near me have had signs for the line for about a month – but not actually had the polishes come in! I chose the shade Model Citizen as it looks a) really close to a gel shade I’ve been wearing on my toes, and b) It’s a lovely shade of pink with a lilacy undertone which I can never get enough of! I’ve heard really positive reviews of this line so far so I will report back on how I find it!

NYX Prismatic Shadows in Golden Peach and Fireball (£5.50 Each)

Two more shadows from NYX, and guess what – another Peach shade! I was googling the swatches of the Prismatic line and fell in love with both of these. Golden Peach is a gorgeous shimmering peach, and Fireball is a terracotta, it’s not a pure red, but has hints of orange into it. I want to start getting more creative with my eyeshadow and I think this is a nice starting point, not too far from a neutral tones but different.

NYX Brow Pomade in Espresso (£5.50)

I’m really late to the brow pomade game, I’m not entirely sure that it’s gonna be my thing, the drawn on brow look is great, but I feel like it’s going to emphasise my naturally wonky brows more by making them overly defined. Therefore splashing out on cult favourite from ABH was a no no for me, but this one from NYX is really well reviewed so I thought I’d give the concept a go with a cheap alternative first.


That’s it – I told you it was mini! I’ve actually used everything in this haul over the weekend and I really like everything! So keep your eyes peeled for posts and reviews once I’ve had chance to try things more thoroughly.

  1. Those eyeshadows look gorgeous! I’m picking out shades for my Z Palette right now and I swear I picked about 6 shades just like those but made myself cool it and only choose 3 haha. I’m looking forward to hearing how you like the Essie Gel polishes, I’ve been eyeing them up!

    Are you sure those NYX eye shadows aren’t dupes of what you got from Inglot!? 😛

      1. WHAT are you using your nails for? Can opener?!! Both my left and right hands are without a single chip, just tip wear and growth at the base.

      1. Interesting. Do you remember roughly when they launched in the UK? Still haven’t seen them around here and I am getting frustrated.
