A Little (kind of) MAC Cosmetics Haul...

Mac Cosmetics Haul Lipstick Skinfinish Chromaline

Holy crap it's been over a week already?! I have no idea where the time goes, honestly. I suppose it could  be due to the fact that I managed to slam my head into a door (completely by accident, might I add), and gave myself a concussion -crying laugh emoji-. So I did what any beauty junkie would do when they're bed-bound on payday... put in a MAC order! Without further ado, here's what I spent half my wages on...

Can we just appreciate for a moment how wonderful a brand new pot of eyeliner looks?! Ugh. 
If you read my FOTD post here, you'll know that I tested out a whole bunch of new makeup products on a day out to Thorpe Park with my boyfriend. All things considered, most of the makeup held up effortlessly, especially as it got to a whopping 28 degrees that day (I walked around in shorts and everything!?!). However the one thing that let me down was my eyeliner. An avid gel liner fan, I decided I wanted to step out of the comfort zone of my usual Maybelline liner and try something different. Bad move.
The Rimmel liner I used was an absolute bugger to apply, and after spending a good 20-25 minutes trying to make good of it, it ended up flaking all over my face after about 15 minutes. So I decided it was time to bring out the big guns! I was originally going to go for the Fluidline in Blacktrack, but the Chromaline juuuust pipped it to the post as it's smudge proof, waterproof, has better reviews and is even £1.50 cheaper. Exciting much!?

If you haven't heard of this at least once yet then which rock have you been hiding under? Everyone and their grandma's-dog's-eldest-cousin-twice-removed in the blogosphere raves about this so I thought it was high time I saw what all the fuss was about! I also saw a girl in a queue line at Thorpe Park who I swear was wearing this on her cheekbones and it looked flawless. I've been trying out theBalm's Mary Lou-manizer prior to this, and although it's wonderfully pigmented it's just too golden for my pale skin. I'm hoping, with any luck this peachier highlight will be better suited to my skin tone.


Mac Cosmetics Satin Lipstick Faux Nude Pink

Satin Lipstick in Faux
I'm usually very wary when it comes to buying MAC lippies online, and I'll usually swatch them in store more times than I can count, just to make 100% sure it's the one I want. Does anyone else do this? I don't know. They're just too pricey to get it wrong, y'know?! I usually stick to the matte formulas too, so purchasing a satin one is right out of my comfort zone as it is haha! I went for 'Faux' as it seems like a nice alternative to 'Velvet Teddy', still pinky/nudey but without a lot of the browny undertones that VT has. Even though the coveted Velvet Teddy was actually in stock (shock, gasp!), I'm terrified that it'll come out way too brown on me, so Faux was a definite winner.

I even got a teeny tiny sample of the Pro Longwear foundation which was a pleasant surprise, especially as I'm in love with the concealer! I don't even want to think about how much money I've just spent on like, three things though... Oh, the life of a woman hey? 

Let me know your opinions if you've tried any of these bits and be prepared for a good few reviews once I've given them a test run haha! 

Big love,
xx
