So basically, I went into Brighton on the hunt for a graduation ball dress, and whilst I was browsing around the shops, I accidentally fell into Mac, and spent too much money (oops!). On my little haul I also managed to find my way to Benefit, Lancome and Boots (triple oops!). I felt like I should share my new little purchases with you guys!
Ive been building up my Mac Pro Palette this year, which I have found so much fun! It might be pricey, but I love the fact that the palette is unique to you, and you will always use all the colours! Plus, it looks so professional in my eyes! Just to let you know, I did already have the palette and 3 shades. The other 5 however, are the ones I’ve just purchased!
The colours are as follows, top to bottom, left to right… Nylon, Jest, All That Glitters, Honesty, Woodwinked, Cranberry, Trax and Mulch! The ones in bold are the new additions. I also purchased the Pro Longwear Concealer in NW20, which I will be doing a first impression on for you soon!
Now, onto Benefit. I had a lovely makeover in Benefit, and purchased some products that were used on me. These were the Benefit Bad Gal Liner in brown, the Sugarbomb blusher and the Big Beautiful Eyes palette, which is stunning! With this purchase, I was able to get samples of both the Benefit Big Easy Multi Balancing Complexion Perfector and Fakeup Concealer (Both of which I will be reviewing soon!).
I don’t usually purchase from Lancome (I’m not overly sure why, but I just haven’t tried their products!). But, me and my mum were extremely enticed by the excellent free gift they had at the moment in Debenhams, when you buy three products. So, I purchased one product, and mum purchased two, so that we could split the free gift! Excellent plan 😉
My product that I chose was the Teint Miracle Foundation, in shade 02 (Yet again, another product I can do a review on for you!). The free items that I got were their Hypnose Mascara (Small size), their blush in 021 Rose Paradis (beautiful bright shade of pink!), a small size of their Juicy Tubes lip gloss, their Galateis Douceur cleaning fluid and a Bi Facil non oily cleanser! I have never used high end cleansers before, so, it would be great to see what difference they make!
Lastly, I could’t possibly miss out Boots. They had a 3 for 2 offer on cosmetics, which I just had to take advantage of! I decided I really needed a white eyeliner in my life, especially as Summer is creeping up on us! So, I went for the Rimmel Soft Kohl eyeliner. Then I took a look at the Revlon section, and found a Colourburst Matte Balm that I LOVED! However, they didn’t have that one left (It was called Complex) and I was gutted. Instead, I got Elusive, which is a beautiful pink shade. Due to my love of these lip balms, I decided to try the Max Factor Colour Effect Flipstick, in the colour 15 Boreal Mauve. My last little purchase was the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge. I’ve never tried applying foundation using one of these sponges before, so would love to review this!
Wow… only after typing it all out have I realised how much I’ve actually brought! Sorry for the length of this… many a mini haul will be better next time ;p
Have you tried any of these products? Or have a Mac Pro palette? I’d love to know what colours you have!
Thanks for reading!
