I popped into Boots today so pick up a few essentials and several other items; watch out for them in my haul post at the end of the month! I already knew that L'Oreal were offering a gift with purchase and planned on picking up some L'Oreal items anyway so I got that and another little free gift from 17. I'm not sure how long these will be available as the L'Oreal set has been in store for at least a week. I thought I'd better blog about them immediately so that anyone who wants to pick up the free gifts can do so.
The L'Oreal set is the larger of the two and you have to spend more to get your hands on it; £15 to be exact. You may have noticed that recently I've been enjoying several L'Oreal products so it wasn't difficult for me to spend £15. I bought a foundation and an eyeshadow, if anyone's wondering!
The kit has 'Nail It, Wing It, Gloss It' written on the packaging so as you'd imagine the contents includes nail polishes, a liquid liner and a gloss. The polishes are from the Color Riche range and the shades are You Are Worth It (blue-grey) and Opulent Pink (hot pink). The kit also includes nail stencils. The polishes are a welcome addition for me; just yesterday I posted about another Color Riche polish that I've been enjoying so I can't wait to try these two. The liner is the Superliner Luminizer in Black Diamond/Brown Eyes. I don't wear eyeliner often so this isn't something I'd have purchased myself but I'll give it a try. The fourth full sized product is a Glam Shine gloss in Magnetic Nude Glow. It's a very metallic nude shade and again, not something I'd have purchased myself but I'm interested to see how it looks over certain lipstick shades. There are also samples of the Nude Magique BB cream and True Match foundation.
If you're not in the market to spend £15 on L'Oreal, how about £5.99 on 17? I purchased the newly reformulated 17 BB cream which was conveniently priced at £5.99 and got this little bronzing set for free.
This set contains an eyeshadow called Statuesque which is a metallic taupe shade. Texture-wise it reminds me of the MUA shadows; it's very pigmented and almost creamy. There is a little pot of a cream blush/bronzer which seems to be quite sheer but buildable. I'm interested to see how this works on my face. The third product in the set is an Ultimate Volume gloss in the shade In The Nude which is another metallic nude gloss.
So there you have it. I spent £21 and got ten products between both kits and the items I purchased. That's a pretty good deal if you ask me, even if I have ended up with two slightly scary looking lip glosses!
Are you going to be picking up either of these little sets?
