A few Boots beauty purchases

So last week I placed a cheeky little Boots order after the new Estee Lauder Double wear nude was mentioned on beauty news. After going on the website I also found an incredible Smashbox deal so I knew I had to make a purchase which led me to this haul.
So first off we have the Double Wear nude, I have always fancied giving double wear a go as so many youtubers and bloggers say it is their holy grail however I just know I would never be able to wear it as my skin is dry and it would just go cakey. However when this was released I knew I had to give it a go. It is a water based foundation meaning it is very runny but it still offers a good amount of coverage. The shade I went for in the end was 1N0 which is the palest shade in the range. So far I am really liking it so expect a review in the coming weeks.
Next up I got the N07 Lift and luminate foundation. This is a product that Kathleen lights mentioned a couple of months ago, as a rule any foundation that she likes and recommends I tend to get on with too so I had to give it a go. Compared to the Estee Lauder it is definitely thicker however still doesn't feel heavy. Again shade wise I went for the palest shade however this is definitely darker both the EL and the NYX bases. I have heard a lot about the NYX Total control drops so I have been waiting very patiently for them to drop in stores in the UK. This is similar to the Estee lauder in terms of how thin it is. I am actually yet to try this one but again I will be putting up a review of this once I have tried it properly.
Moving on to my absolute bargain purchase I picked up the Smashbox Matte exposure palette which is a beautiful collection of both orange and purple toned mattes for £30 and then got a free be legendary lipstick in a shade of my choice for free. I went for the shade Firestorm which is a beautiful orange toned red shade. The palette has 14 shades and also comes with a nice quality double ended brush. Again there will be reviews up of both of these so keep your eyes peeled if you want to know more. 
What have you picked up recently?
