I went to MAC… Oh dear

Oh dear.

I know I only hauled at the start of the month, but – you guys know me, the urge to buy makeup just keeps getting the better of me!

After having mooch around the shops I went into MAC to have a look at the beautiful products (if you’re a makeup addict like me I’m sure you can relate to that), and ended up buying a couple of bits and pieces.

I thought I’d share my unexpected buys with you and I hope you enjoy!

Let’s start off with my first ever MAC lipstick! I know, I know, being a beauty blogger and all it was kind of outrageous to think that I’d never owned one of these beauties before.

After trying what seemed like a hundred lipsticks on (including Saint Germain – I did tell the assistant I didn’t like the colour but she insisted I’d love it. Turns out it is not the right colour for me!) I finally found my perfect shade – Angel. The perfect cross between pink and nude, I think! Not to mention that it’s supposedly Kim Kardashian’s staple. I’m so excited to wear it!

Here’s some swatches!

And the other thing I picked up from MAC was one of their Mineralized Blushes – another first for me, I’ve never owned a MAC blush before! Gosh, I haven’t lived have I?

I was after that ‘perfect’ blush colour – every girl needs one – and I was drawn to the shade Dainty. After dusting a little onto my cheeks I just fell in love – it is the ideal shade to give my pale skin a bit of life and colour!

I also love the formula – amazingly pigmented and it’s also so smooth and almost buttery in the pan.

Swatches, swatches!

The Mineralized blushes from MAC are beautiful, as they also have shimmer. No need to wear a highlighter!

So those were my most recent MAC purchases. Yes, I only got two little pieces but as you all know MAC is pretty pricey, and these things alone cost me almost £40!

Maybe you won’t see a haul for a while, I need a break!

I’ve got the MAC lipstick bug! Which ones would you recommend me to try next?

    1. You sound exactly like me! I think that this is the reason that I’ve never invested in the Soft and Gentle highlighter – when’s watched they just look way to glittery.
      When buying this one, I asked if I could have a little on my cheeks to see if I liked it – and you can barely see the shimmer! Just a very subtle sheen.
      With Dainty I wear it all of the time now, the light sheen means that it’s perfect for night and day – plus the colour’s beautiful!
      Thank you for commenting 🙂 xx
