Recent Purchases: Boots and Dealz

colorburst-thumbWhile things have been pretty slim on the buying front I have been able to treat myself now and then. For example, today I went into Boots to buy razor blades. These are more of a necessity than a treat, so they’re not included here. The rest of what I walked out with is…

Nail Polish: Maybelline Color Show in 107 – Watery Waste:


Before I begin, let me point out 2 things. Firstly, it’s ColoUr, not color. Get it right. Secondly, what were you thinking with the name “Watery Waste”? You’re not selling it to me with that name. What did sell it to me, aside from the silvery colour itself, was the big clearance sticker on it that said €2! SOLD!

Lip Crayons: Revlon Colorburst (seriously, I’m getting annoyed with the lack of U here) Lacquer and Matte Balms in 150 – Enticing (Lacquer), 220 – Showy (Matte) & 250 – Standout (Matte):


I’ve been hearing so much love for these new crayons, and with Boots having another 3 for 2 offer on, it was wrong to leave them sitting on the shelf. Normally €11.20 each the offer meant that I got them for €7.47 each instead. Bargain! In the swatches below, I’ve included the original Just Bitten Balm Stain in 020 – Lovesick for comparison.


What I’m thinking is I have nearly matching pairs here, at least on paper. Lovesick seems to be a more glossy version of Showy, and Enticing is a close match for Standout. They’re very pigmented colours though. I’m loving them already, and I haven’t even tried them on my lips yet.

Dealz Purchase:

Nail Polish: Revlon Nail Art Neon in 100 – Atomic Pink, 110 – High Voltage, 120 – Neon Light, 130 – Laser Beam & 170 – Ultra Violet:

revlon-nail-artThese were €1.49 each. I love nail polish. Enough said 😉

What have you treated yourself to recently? What else should I be buying? Are you going to fund it for me (wishful thinking)? Let me know in the comments!

  • I cannot get over the name of ‘Watery Waste’…EW!

    Also “Are you going to fund it for me?” hahaha I’m going to start writing that on my blog. If someone agrees, I’ll go halfs with you 😉

  • Looks like I wasn’t the only one to go on a beauty haul recently! I went a bit mental in Superdrug myself and did a post on how other beauty bloggers are serious enablers for all the products I bought!

    I have NEVER been able to take that ‘Watery Waste’ name seriously. Like, come on! Whoever thought it would be a good name for a make up product?! Watery Waste just reminds me of sewage for some reason.

    And I’m dying to have a try on the new Revlon balms, I have 4 of the originals and I’m curious to see how the formula is compared to them. However, it shall be a while before I get my hands on them, as I’ve put myself on a spending ban!

    • We’re beauty bloggers. Enabling is one thing we’re good at.

      I’m not taking the name seriously. I just can’t. I’m not going to tell anyone I have watery waste on my nails. They’ll never touch me again.

      The original Revlon ones are good, or at least the one I have is. I’ll say no more in case I encourage you to break the spending ban! Dani had a good piece on about them yesterday though.

  • I’m totally with you with the spelling of “colour”, it bugs me a lot too.

    Great purchase, I’m wanting to try more Revlon products but for some reason they are difficult to get here in Spain.

  • I think I used a ‘u’ in colourburst in my whole review, whoops! Great post!

  • I’m looking forward to my birthday next month for a little beauty haul. Will probably get some more nail polishes (obviously!) but want to try a decleor Skincare ylang ylang kit in the hope it sorts my oily skin out xx

    • Ooh, sounds good. Be sure to check out the Best of Beauty posts this week. All about skincare. You’ll get lots of tips.

  • I love you for your coloUr versus color comments!

    While we’re on the subject the z in Dealz annoys me no end too. It’s like, what’s wrong with the letter s? Gah!

    • It’s a total pain. The Americans don’t know how to use the English language. *waits for backlash*

      As for Dealz. They must think it makes them sound “unique”. Did they consider “ridiculous”?

  • Watery Waste?? WHAT?? Loving the the new look blog :)

    • Yeah, someone in Maybelline came up with the name Watery Waste! At least I base my choices on colour and not name!

      I’m loving the new look blog too. Not bad for 10 hours and insomnia 😉

  • I picked up the colorburst pencils and some 17 ones too. Dying to try them out. Also… watery waste… least attractive nail polish name award goes to ….

Go on, talk to me. I don't bite!
