Getting Down At The Drugstore


Hi my names Sophie and I have a total weakness for a good drugstore bargain. 'Gift with purchase' and 3 for 2 offers, are words that never fail to make me a little giddy at the knees, and because of that I often spend a small fortune within minutes on fabulous high street gems. So It will come as no suprise that I didn't leave empty handed during my recent trip to Boots thanks to those two devilish words. 

The Seventeen Brows That Brow Kit was the first item to fall victim to my basket. Dangerously close to pan on both my E.L.F Brow Kit and Benefit Brow Zings, I couldn't resist picking up this Limited Edition gem (any excuse hey). With a full review in the pipeline I wont go into too much detail but what I will say is that its a serious contender to knock Brow Zings off the top spot (yes it really is that good). The Brows That Brow Kit is currently £6, or free if you spend £8 or more across the Seventeen line. Obviously I made the most of the offer and picked up a Skin Wow Primer Highlighter and 18 Hour Stay Time Concealer (expect a review soon). My logic?? Why spend £6 on one product when for a mere £2 more you could get three. How shameful. 

After a mooch around I was ready to hit the tills, when a row of limited edition Cherry Velvet Maybelline Baby Lips caught my attention. Its no secret that I have an obsession with these colourful balms, so it would have been rude not to leave without at least one. However I will say that the offer on this balm is a little confusing to say the least. Emblazoned across the barcode was 'limited edition sample, not for resale', yet all that was written on the board was 3 for 2. A little confused, I took to twitter to find out a little more about this mysterious Maybelline Baby Lips, when the lovely Amy came to my rescue. Basically as part of the 3 for 2 offer, aswell as getting the cheapest item free, you also get a limited edition Baby Lips (win win right?!). 

Making the most of 3 for 2, I also picked up the Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Metallic Pomegranate. Hailed as a purse friendly alternative to MAC's Cranberry I couldn't resist popping it in my basket. A Maybelline The One By One Black Mascara and a Nail Polish which I happily handed over to my friend, for good measure. 
Are you a sucker for a good drugstore bargain?!
