Months of being the first customer in Boots in the morning, stalking out the aisles, filling my basket and consequently having ‘no more room at the inn’ problems within my stash have paid off because today I’m delivering to you a well-rounded freshly picked edit of the best the drugstore has to offer all wrapped in a VDM-approved bow. There are almost 20 products that get a nod this time, spanning all categories from hair, body, tanning, beauty and nails. If you ever want a taste of what budget beauty bits I’m loving there’s always the often updated ‘The Budget Buy’ category which does what it says on the tin or previous editions of this video which can be found here, here and here. Make sure you grab a cuppa before you set down for this one, it’s a bum numb-er.

    What happens if you exfoliate after applying the Loreal bronze stuff? Or do you just wait for it to fade?

  • Parisian To Be

    Ever since I saw you apply the Garnier Miracle Skin Cream, I’ve been dying to get my hands on it. Unfortunately, both it and the Maybelline glosses aren’t available stateside. But, with that being said–I think I may pick up the Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation.

    I’ve been loving the baby lips and baby skin items from maybelline. They’re so great and affordable. The baby skin is a great dup to Benefit’s Porefessional.

    It was fun watching the timed makeup. Wasn’t aware that Maxfactor’s creamy blush could be used on lips as well! I have tried a few before and they are just not worth it. Love Love the eyeshadow

    I looove your picks! This tan-heavy selection had me thinking I
    really would love a Guide to Tanning from you. You’re quite the expert and I’m a total noob.
    I’ve never tried it and I’m trying to peel out of the sun this summer.

    I am from the USA and remember when Bourjois could be purchasedat our local Ulta (it’s like a less glam Sephora they have some high end and drugstore beauty items). Sadly I can’t find Bourgois anywhere but online, shipped from Europe. Not to easy when choosing foundation, lip, and blush shades! Healthy jealousy going on here!!!
