At the moment, Boots is running an offer where if you buy any No7 products, you will receive a free Beautiful Blossom box, which contains an eyeshadow, a skin primer and a mascara. Today I thought I would show you the unboxing.
Sam and I were shopping in Kendal last week when I decided I needed to pop into Boots for some of my favourite foundation- Beautifully Matte in Calico and we spotted that this offer was on. Sam suggested that I buy 2 bottles of foundation, because I use the palest shade and the smaller Boots stores near my house don’t always have it in stock, s that’s what I did. I picked up the gift box and headed for the till. At this point, the sweetest old lady came up to me and gave me a £3 off No7 makeup voucher to use with my foundation, and told me that when I open the box I will also be able to get a free lipstick of my choice, let’s just say I was very happy! What a sweet lady!
Anyway, my 2 foundations cost me £26.00 (including the voucher), and then with this I have also received a gift box worth over £30. So I have basically doubled my money and got 6 products for the price of 2!
This box is so pretty! I had to resist opening it for 5 days until I got home so I could share it with you, but I would actually keep this box for decoration if I could (I’m a bit of a hoarder).
In this box you receive 4 things:
- Eyeshadow (a cool brown tone, perfect for any skin tone)
- Airbrush Away Primer (full size £16.50)
- Dramatic Lift Mascara (full size £13.50)
- A voucher for a free Moisture Drench or Match Made Stay Perfect Lipstick
Choosing the Lipstick
A few days after receiving my box, we went back to the store so I could pick out my Lipstick. I am terrible at choosing lip colours, because I’m not that used to wearing them. It must have took about 15 minutes of swatching, staring blankly at the counter and going over the same shades again and again… before Sam came back to the counter and said go for Red, when all that time I had been looking at nudes.
Anyhow, I am so happy with my final decision. This is the Moisture Drench Lipstick in the Shade ‘Soft Paprika’. It’s a beautiful bright red, which is more on the blue end of the scale then orange. It’s super rich and creamy… it’s just amazing.
This offer is only on for a short amount of time, and I really think it’s great value for money with what you get out of it. You can look on Boots.com for products to buy and claim your free gift box, and then choose your perfect lip shade too!
What do you think of this box? Did you like the lip shade I picked out?
