Hello lovelies! I hope you’ve all had a good week, my week was good except now I’ve got a ton of exams to do, woohoo! 😦 Anyway, last weekend the fam and I took a trip to Brent Cross, and it just so happens that there was a MAC there, in Fenwick. And yes, I couldn’t help myself but buy things in there. And I may have spent £30. I’ve never bought anything from MAC before so I guess I have an excuse! But I still can’t justify spending £30 in one shop… Call me cheapskate, I’m a teen ok? Ramble over, you guys requested a haul so here it is 😀
I went into MAC looking to get an eyeshadow, a lipstick, an empty quad palette, and a paint pot. I picked up all those things as well as another eyeshadow, and then realised I didn’t want to spend over £50 so I ditched a few things and came out with these lovely bits.
The first thing I got is this empty MAC quad palette. I love the idea of building up a palette full of eyeshadows that you choose yourself, and plus it works out 10x cheaper doing it this way. It was only £6.50 which I thought was reasonable, and I can’t wait to fill up those, yes you guessed it, two out of four slots…
Before I went into MAC, I had planned on getting the eyeshadows All That Glitters or Patina. I came out with neither. Although the internet helps, sometimes it’s best to see it instore yourself. I found Mulch and I loved the look of it on my skin, and on my eye (cheeky, I know). I got the pan version which is £2.50 cheaper, so basically the £2.50 is for the packaging. The colour is a gorgeous warm browny/coppery colour with a tiny hint of purple/red in. It looks stunning on brown eyes.
Lastly, I got the MAC Paint Pot in Soft Ochre after hearing and seeing Gabby from velvet gh0st use it all the time. Soft Ochre is a yellowy shade that is meant to block out any redness or veins on your eyelids. It’s also meant to create a base and act as a primer for your eyeshadow. I can’t wait to see how this works! It retails for £15 and comes in a beautiful glass pot, can we please take a minute to admire how stunning it is? Yes I’m weird, I get excited about packaging… the perks of being a #bblogger.
If I was made of money, I would have also picked up MAC Lipstick in Rebel (which I will eventually buy) and Patina and All that glitters to fill up the spaces in my palette. The other eyeshadow is Woodwinked, which I featured in my January Beauty Haul.
That’s all I picked up in MAC! I am very happy about my new make up 🙂 What have you picked up in MAC recently? What eyeshadows would you recommend I fill my MAC Quad with?
I hope you enjoyed this post! Thanks so much for reading!
Lots of Love,
