Days 13-18 of my Beauty Advent Calendars – Boots Beauty and Advent Blog Swap

Another update to show you what I’ve been getting in my Boots Advent calendar and with my fantastic Advent blog swap with the gorgeous Fiona at Beauty Fiend.
I can’t believe it’s time for another post, feels like only yesterday that I wrote the other one, arg.
On Day 13 I got a second Vichy sample from Boots, this time a Serum for eyes and lashes. From Fiona I got a Models Own polish in the shade Concrete Mixer. Initially I was worried that this would be too similar to Porchester Square by Nails Inc but, actually, it’s a much cooler shade, more grey – I really like it!


 On Day 14  was my last but one perfume sample from Boots, this time a vial of Couture Lala which I’ve smelled before after getting a sample in a beauty box. From Fiona I got a really nice Cranberry Joy hand cream from Body Shop which I really like the smell of.


On Day 15 I remembered to be sensible at take a photo of the two lots together (though, of course, thus far I’ve not had any trouble from the photos.. yeah they’re taunting me)
From Boots I got a Seventeen ‘Tattoo Me – Semi Permanent Liquid Eyeliner‘ – It’s supposed to be able to last for 48hrs which is quite a claim!
From Fiona I got nice samples plus a little pack of Kleenex ‘Shine Absorbing Sheets’ – Weirdly I’ve never tried any oil blotting papers but I’ve always meant to so that’ll be really handy to try out.
Another day where I was sensible! Day 16 brought me a mini nail file from Boots… yeah. But from Fiona I got a fab Body Shop fragrance oil in Cranberry Joy again, really nice.



On Day 17 I got a second Soap & Glory mini from Boots which is nice! This time it was a ‘Flake Away’ scrub. From Fiona I got a second Rimmel ‘Wake Me up Instance Radiance Shimmer Touch’ in Shimmering Sand’ – another of those things I’d seen people getting in poundland hauls and been soo jealous so I’m soo pleased I’ve got it now and my goodness does it shimmer!


Lastly, on Day 18, I got the final perfume sample which is Ghost – Moonlight which I’ve not smelled yet (getting headaches which can be made worse by strong smells) but I do look forward to finding out how it smells.
From Fiona, a second Sleek product (we clearly have similar tastes in brands/products, I got her Sleek too!) – This time she gave me one of their Gloss Me lip glosses in ‘Belle of the ball’ which is a gorgeous, shimmery formula in a pinky mauve shade – I’m wearing it now and I like it a lot!Been spoiled again, this time, though a couple of duds from Boots (though for the price, there’s been some fab things too). Don’t forget you can get daily pics from Instagram if you follow me petitmoi_bigworld
Can’t believe that the next post about these will be the last one! 19-24 next!
