Small Boots Haul!

Hello Belgian buns!!
Today I'm bringing you a small haul, I haven't done a lot of beauty shopping lately because I'm spending most of my money on books at the moment (hauls a-plenty on my book blog, which is why there hasn't been many here! Check out my book blog here) so I thought I'd have a mini splurge whilst looking at all the new releases.

I've just used up my eyebrow pencil and as it's the most important thing in my makeup bag I had to snap up a new one! I've used this Rimmel Professional Eyebrow Pencil in dark brown before and I couldn't remember if I enjoyed using it and unfortunately I'm not.
It's a nice consistency, and fills in my brows well, but the colour is too warm, I prefer a cool or neutral brown rather than a reddish warm brown like this one so I think I might have to go back and see if Boots have this pencil in brown/black or if they still sell my trusty Seventeen Brow Sculpting Pencil!

My hands have been SO dry lately, I work in a kitchen so my hands always take a battering when they're immersed in water or handling hot food so I need a heavy duty moisturiser for them, and this Garnier Intensive 7 Days SOS Repair Hand Cream was on offer for £1.99 so I couldn't say no!
This is a decent 100ml size so I can use this on my feet too (TMI).

Revlon had a 3 for 2 offer on so, as I need a new liquid eyeliner, I thought I'd give the Revlon Colorstay Liquid Eye Pen a go!
I love these felt tip eyeliners but you do run the risk of them not being very black and not distributing the product properly, and that's the issue with this one.
It looked super black when I swatched it in the shop but now when I use it it feels too dry and not black enough, but it was worth a try, I did get this for free after all!

 Now onto the more exciting products, the lip products!! 
I own a lot of lipsticks so I made a bargain with myself that I'd only buy shades I didn't already own, which sounds absurd to a normal person but you wouldn't believe how many lipsticks I had that were all exactly the same colour when I had a clearout of them!
And this gorgeous Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Elusive is a unique colour to my collection, yay!
It's kind of 90's, a matte dusky pink that reminds me of Amazonian supermodels!
I love a matte lip, but I only have them in bright colours so a more neutral one is a great addition to my lipstick family!

 This is my favourite thing I bought in this little haul, it's a fairly new release from Revlon and it's the Revlon Colorstay Moisture Lip Stain in Parisian Passion.
To me, moisture and lip stain seems to be a bit of a oxymoron, usually lip stains are so drying! But this product is actually both of those opposing things!
The applicator distributes a nice amount of product and it gives a fairly opaque, glossy finish to the lips.
I think this would be a great Autumn lip for someone who doesn't want to go all out with a bold, dark lip, but still wants to keep with the Autumn trend for plum lips.
It stays glossy but I gave this lipstick the kiss test on my boyfriend and I was didn't leave behind any stain on his lips!
I would definitely buy some more colours, I'm especially interested in the deeper shades now we're moving into the colder weather (yay!).

That's my little haul!! I'm pleased with about half of the things I got, it's just the eyebrow pencil and the eyeliner that have disappointed a bit.
It's my birthday next month and I have a sneaking suspicion that I'll have one or two Superdrug/Boots gift cards to spend so expect another haul fairly soon, I think I've been bitten by the beauty bug again!
