Hauls are way more fun when you get to the till and don’t have to pay a penny. Fact. No, Mark wasn’t feeling generous – boo – I’m talking about my Boots Advantage Card, which had reached a credit amount that I was both proud of and slightly cringing at at the same time. Proud because I hadn’t caved in around a year and purchased a meal deal with it like I usually do which lead to an accumulation of points. Cringing because of course while I felt like I deserved some kind of medal for reaching said amount, it also meant that over the years I had spent a lot, I repeat, a lot of money in there. I’ve never got past £10 worth of store credit in Boots before, so what do you do when in doubt? Head to the Dior counter. And that day two things came home with me without me even having to take my card out my purse. Score.
First on my list was the Dior Healthy Glow Booster Blush in Petal. A blush that has been on my list for yonks and has remained there thanks to many beauty blogger raves. It does exactly what it says on the tin, heating up the cheeks with a subtle pink glow that looks nowhere near as clown-like as the pan suggests. It’s an entry level blush designed in such a way that you can’t go wrong with it. Blush virgins I think I’ve found your first flush to frolic with.
A less expected purchase, but in keeping with the glowy theme, came in the form of Dior’s Addict Lip Glow; a pink tinted balm that delivers a personalised shade down to some fancy schmansy technology housed inside. Now I’m not sure I buy that exactly, but it does give lips a pretty petal sheen and works for me like an amped up version of By Terry Baume de Rose. And we all know how much I love that.
Now my Advantage Card Points are back to a big fat zero. Time to get shopping again then, eh?
