MAC HAUL

Tuesday, 29 April 2014









Queue the excitement - this is my first ever MAC haul! I've never bought anything by MAC before because I could never justify spending that much money on make-up. Recently my outlook has changed, and after lusting after their lipsticks on countless blogs, I knew it was time for me to invest. I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.




I could have stood at that lipstick counter for hours. I'm a sucker for lipsticks at the moment; they can really brighten your face so sometimes all you really need is a colourful lipstick and you're good to go. It's definitely the one beauty product I can't live without at the moment.

Anyway, back to MAC... There are a few different finishes with the lipsticks but I was drawn to the Cremesheen, and in particular Crosswires. It's the perfect coral/red shade - good for both a daytime and nighttime look. I swatched lots of other lipsticks but Crosswires was the first one I tried and I fell in love! I don't know if it's possible to fall in love with a lipstick but boy, I did.

On my way to the counter to pay for the lipstick, I spotted the MAC brushes. I've been wanting the 217 brush for ages and my eyes darted straight towards it. It's a blending brush to blend in your eyeshadow and I've heard great things about it so in my basket it went (I didn't actually have a basket but you know what I mean).

I haven't actually used the lipstick or the brush yet but I felt a certain satisfaction when I was carrying my MAC bag. I even put a photo of it on Instagram because I was that excited. Maybe £15 for a lipstick is expensive but when they're this pretty I'm not gonna say no.
