Haul: A Few Goodies From Boston

Took advantage of the lovely weather yesterday and drove through to Boston for a little bit of shopping (and to scoff a KFC!). The Boots there isn't the biggest or best stocked but I was surprised to see an Essie stand so I'm hoping the Lincoln Boots will be stocking it as well!
The Boots Advantage Points machine spat out a bonus points for a £20 spend, not hard to do in Boots! I bought:
-Essie "Dive Bar" Polish
-Soap & Glory T-Zone Oil Control Daily Moisture Lotion
-Soap & Glory Shower Puff (not photographed, it's in my shower!)
I managed to go over £20 by 49p so I got my bonus points!

The Superdrug in Boston is pretty good, a fairly new and bright building. It doesn't stock Sleek or Accessorize but the make up side of the shop is pretty spacious. I was pleased to see the previous MUA corner was now a proper stand and included MUA Pro. There was a 3for2 offer on so I got these 3 bits from MUA for the grand total of £5.00!
-MUA Pro Trio Eye Shadow "Chocolate Box"
-MUA Pro Eye Primer
-MUA Pro 3 in 1 Extreme Liner "Fresh Mint"

I also managed to snag myself a little jar sample of Benefit's new liquid foundation. I didn't want to spend £25 on a bottle when I wasn't sure about the colour match.


  1. Would love to try the mua trio eyeshadows but my local Superdrugs are rubbish, one doesn't even stock any mua stuff at all. £5 is really good for all that too!

    1. This is the first time I've seen a good MUA Pro stock locally. Most of the trios had sold out though :(

  2. Lincoln Boots has the new Essie stand :) Bad news for me because im obsessed with polishes at the minute haha xx

    1. Yay!! I thought it might do if the poky little Boston Boots had it. Must buy Mint Candy Apple next time :)

  3. The MUA chocolate box is lovely, the darkest shade I think quite complex and unusual...have worn this many times on the lid as per your last FOTD (one colour only) with some black gel liner and it looks great. The primer, well this was the first primer that I bought that I actually used... I will be interested to know how you like it! Also the extreme liners make great shadow bases if you blend them out a bit...;) x

  4. Okay, i went into Lincoln boots about 3 times this week, and i've accumlated 8, yes 8, essie polishes!! My lord, don't tell the other half haha!! Love essie, im wearing watermelon at the moment, a bright corally fuschia, which is lovely. Also bought sand tropez, cute as a button, chinchilly, not just a pretty face, fiji and chocolate cakes. Bought van d'go online :D xx
