Help Me Spend My Boots Points!!


All beauty junkies know what a joy the Boots Advantage Card system is. You get 4 whole points for every €1 spent makes it Ireland’s most generous loyalty card, and with frequent points booster events and coupons, it’s not hard for a cosmetics obsessive like me to rack up a lot of points.

At the moment, my current points balance stands at an embarrassing impressive €70. So now I’m faced with quite a conundrum… what shall I spend my precious points on? Rather than using them on regular essentials, or indulgent body care like Soap & Glory items as I usually do, this time, I really wanna treat myself. I’ve been looking on the Boots website and have spotted some great luxury brands like Dior, Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent amongst other great brands like Benefit and Smashbox. So here’s where I need your help- TELL ME WHAT TO BUY!! I don’t own a huge amount of high-end makeup, apart from a few bits and pieces from MAC, Benefit & Urban Decay, but I want to feel like I’ve picked up a really nice luxury holy grail items. I’ve come up with a few ideas as you can see from the photos below, but I’d love to hear some other beauty bloggers recommendations!

So as you can see I’ve been toying with the idea of the Smashbox Contour Sticks, the Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat foundation, or lipsticks from Chanel or YSL, or maybe a Dior lipgloss. These are just ideas, I’d love to know other bloggers opinions or recommendations, feel free to leave links to your reviews below. Thanks in advance, now on to the comments….!

    I have a Chanel lipstick and I adore it! It’s one of my ‘special-event-only’ products… You should definitely consider it! Or have you thought about the YSL Touché Éclat? X
