MAC Haul

Hi everyone!

On Saturday I ordered some things from MAC and they were delivered today! Yay! They are all things I've been wanting to try so without further ado, here are the bits and bobs I bought!

Eye Kohl in 'Teddy'

Pixi2woo recommended this as her favourite ever eyeliner in a recent Youtube video. This already hooked me because I love Tanya and her videos, but the appeal of a soft, smudgy brown liner really appealed to me. I always use black but it can look harsh against my skin. I can't wait to try this out!

Plushglass in 'Fulfilled'

This look great on the website and it looks really pigmented in the tube, but it goes on clear. I tried a few coats purely to see if I could build the colour up but it stayed clear which I'm so disappointed about. Hopefully it will at least look nice over lipsticks!

Lipstick in 'Patisserie'

I love this! This is definitely 'my lips but better.' It's a lustre and applies so smoothly and gives such a nice sheen, I think Lustres are my favourite formula! I can tell I'll be using this so much, love it!

So there's what I got!

What are your favourite things from MAC?

May Favourites

Hi everyone!

Long time no blog! Sorry about that, I just haven't been inspired lately for some reason. However, as it's the end of May (I can't believe it!) I thought it would be nice to show you what I've been loving in the month of May!

Tresemme Naturals Nourishing Moisture Shampoo

I bought a travel size of this shampoo when I went to visit my friend and absolutely loved the scent and how shiny and smooth it made my hair, so I bought a nice big bottle! This makes my hair smell gorgeous!

Lancome Hypnose Perfume

I remember when this perfume first came out, I was about 13/14 and I would always go into Boots to get samples from the Lancome lady because I loved this perfume! It's stayed a constant favourite and I've used it a lot this month!

Body Shop Vitamin E Night Cream

This is a travel ste size but I bought the set quite a few months ago and I still have loads left! This is a nice thick cream and it reallys helps my dry skin hydrate itself overnight.

Urban Decay Naked Palette

This is possibly my favourite make up purchase ever! I love each and every one of the eyeshadows, the Primer Potion is brilliant and it's all I've been using on my eyes this month! Amazing!

Max Factor Xperience Foundation

I've been through about 4 bottles of this, I just love it! Great coverage, matches my skin perfectly and doesn't feel at all cakey on my skin.

Elf Powder Brush

My lovely best friend Hayley texted me when she bought this saying I needed to pick it up and she was so right! This is amazing to apply foundation with, it gives such a flawless look. The brush is so soft and supple too.

Primark Kabuki Brush

I've been using this with my bronzer and MSF and it applies just the right amount of product. It's a great little brush and I'm sure it was only like a pound!

Bourjois Effet 3D Lipgloss in Rouge Democratic

This is really pigmented and looks great on its own or paired with a pink lipstick. Just been using it loads, love it!

Maybelline Colour Sensational Lipgloss in Ivory Beige

I wouldn't say this is Ivory or Beige! It's a gorgeous shimmery peach colour that looks amazing with golden eyeshadow and bronzer! It smells nice too!

MAC Cork Eyeshadow

I've been using this every day as my brow colour, it matches perfectly and makes my brows look more defined and uniform. It's a great as a contour eyeshadow colour too!

So there are my May Favourites!
What have you been loving in May?

Superdrug Shopping!

Hi everyone!

I just thought I'd show you all my very little 'haul' from Superdrug this week! I only wanted a red lipliner but of course, you never come away with just one thing do you!

The lipliner is Rimmel's Lasting Finish liner in 021 Red Dynamite. I've wanted a red liner for ages as I always feel my red lipstick straying over onto my skin and I have to constantly touch it up, so this is perfect for lining and filling in my lips so lipstick has something to cling to!

 I also picked up a Bourjois Effet 3D Gloss in 06 Rouge Democratic. Bourjois glosses are my favourite! This is a gorgeous, shimmery cherry red and looks perfect just on its own.

Left: 597 Miss Minty Right: 598 Bubble Gum

GOSH Nail Lacquers are my favourite also so when I spotted these two I had to have them! They are such good dupes of MAC's Mischievious Mint and Ice Cream Cake! I love the formulation and application of GOSH lacquers and these shades are perfect for summer!

Hope you've picked up some nice things lately!

Primark Purchases

Hi everyone!

Today I nipped into Primark to see if I could get any last minute things for my Lady Gaga themed outing tomorrow, just some quirky bits that would make it more obvious who I'm dressing as!

I ended up picking up a few things that caught my eye, so here they are to show you.

Bag: £5.00

This is just a small bag so I thought it would look cute when I go out or go shopping, when I only need to fit a purse, phone, keys and trusty lipgloss in my bag!

Hairbands: £1.00

Boring I know, but I needed some!

Make up Bag: £2.00

I gave my old make up bag to my Mam as I never used it, then realised I don't have anything to transport my make up in, so I picked this cute bag up.

Tights: £3.00

Someone say they're Lady Gaga-ish, please! I have brown hair instead of Gaga's trademark blonde (and I'm not partial to wigs!) so no matter what I wear, people are going to think it's a genuine outfit choice.

Hair Feather: £1.00

I thought sticking this in my hair would liven it up a bit and it's something quirky that Gaga would potentially go far. God, I'm going to end up looking like a mad woman.

Earrings: £1.50

I loved the pattern on these, they're so cute!

Necklace: £3.00

This has so many charms on, it's really sweet and looks handmade and vintage inspired which I love!

Wash Mitt: £1.00

I thought this would be great for when I'm tanning, and at only a £1.00 it was a steal! Such a cute print too, I love Minnie Mouse!

So there we have it!

Have you been shopping this week?
