MAC Haul

The eye shadows, the blush, the lipsticks. MAC, we love it all. I recently went to Birmingham with Scott and my number one priority was to go to MAC and get some eye shadows for my palette I'm building up. As expected it was packed full of people so I went back again and again, but the queue was just too much. In the end I gave up and went for the on line shop, which always seems to end up with my buying more than planned. As you can expect from the pictures.

So I picked up or clicked on these two lovely eye shadows, 'Cranberry' and 'Paradisco', I thought they would go so well together with 'Paradisco' on the lid and 'Cranberry' to contour the eye. Alternatively 'Cranberry' on the full lid with a dark brown for a contour. MAC eye shadows are really great quality. The formula is amazing and it is so pigmented so you only need a small amount for great colour. I then had a little browse of the blushers and couldn't resist 'Whole Lotta Love'. It is a lovely Matte bright pink and will be perfect for summer, when it eventually comes. It still looks amazing in the winter though, gives my pale face that bit of colour it needs.

I've heard so much about how great MAC brushes and thought I would try them out, I got a MAC 217 brush, yes, it is my first MAC brush! Don't make fun! I use this as a contour brush for my eye shadows, it blends so well and makes the colours melt into each other giving my look a more professional finish. I'm very pleased with this brush and will look at getting some more MAC brushes, any suggestions are welcome :)

As you can see in the top picture, there is a tiny little MAC tube. I think this was a Christmas offer, but I got a free tester of the MAC mascara (False lashes extreme black). I am 100% picking this up in full size. It is so good for volume and thicker lashes, but it still gives a natural look. No clumping.

I loved my little MAC splurge, have you got anything from MAC lately?

  1. I am a huge fan on MAC Blushers. I use their brown-shades Prism and Harmony to contour my face! I think "Cranberry" is a gorgeous color for this time of year, as well as for fall.. And "Paradisco" is equally fun. I think it will be perfect when spring and summer roll around, too! Thanks for sharing and enjoy your new MAC goodies!

    Much Love,

  2. I love the 217 brush! It was the first one I bought myself from MAC too! Paradisco looks so gorgeous, and I have cranberry in my collection and I use it a ton during the fall and winter! You got some great items!

  4. Great buys. Mac 217 is a classic, although I'm now a big fan of it's dupe, Zoeva 227 brush, which is even better in my eyes. x
