Mini Boots HaulFriday, July 24, 2015
Since coming back from holiday I’ve been really struggling to find a base that works well for my colouring that has a bit of coverage but isn’t cakey and evens everything out. I have what I call book readers neck, in that my throat area stays pale as I have my chin on my chest reading a book for most of the time I’m away.
I’ve been scouring boots looking for a BB / CC cream but they all have SPF 15 or above and I find it gives them a white cast that I don’t want. Helen from my local No7 counter came to my rescue by discussing with me exactly what I wanted and recommending the Boots no7 Intelligent Colour Foundation. This only has an SPF6 and it changes to match your skin tone.
I used this years ago when it first came out but never went back to it again. I think that was after a holiday and when I faded and was too pale for it I just went back to using what I had before the holiday.
I have to say I’m really enjoying using it. It’s light enough not to feel like it’s going to melt off but blends the different colours of my face to match each other.
It also seems to last most of the day and when I take my make up off at night there is always lots of the product to take off. I didn’t expect it to last as well as it does on me as it’s so light.
It has an almost mouse like texture but I find I need to make sure I’ve shaken the tube before I use it as it can be a bit separated.
There was a buy one get one half price offer on so I decided to get the new mascara which was on a trail price of £10 this lengthens and curls. I have lots of mascara’s and I really didn’t need another one but I will try it soon, I just need to work through the open ones before I do start using it.
