MAC and Clinique Haul

Hey dollz! On Tuesday I checked my bank balance and saw that I wasn’t as poor as I thought I would be so skipped along London Bridge to House of Fraser with the wind in my hair and a smile on my face!

Without flash

With flash

A sleepy looking moi at 6.55am ZZZzzzzzzzz

I have wanted Ladyblush Blushcreme for aaaaaaages, I saw it on the Goodbyes section on the MAC website and panicked a little that it wouldn’t be in stock but it was. It’s a gorgeous matte pink colour that blends well and gives me a gorgeous dewy look I am loving it! I apply mine with my fingers, dabbing it one with one then blending it out with a clean pinky.

I have about 7-8 lipsticks that I would like I had Hue and Vegas Volt in my hand and decided to go with Hue it's a gorgeous pale pink that looks nothing like the picture on the website. It's a Glaze lippie which I find are quite moisturising.

I also picked up one eyeshadow in the colour Beauty Marked which MAC describe as 'A deep blackened red with a sparkle/twilight effect'. Look out for a FOTD/N featuring this soon. Purple is probably one of my fav colours but I made a mistake and bought Mum ♥ and I Shadowy Lady which is a matte, it's the hardest shadow to blend in the world! If you have it, please help a sista out! How the eff do you blend it? Answers below please

I have Blacktrack fluidline by MAC but it has seriously dried out, I'm finding it quite hard to use now and find I have to stop half way through a stroke to load up again. I bought Clinique brush on cream liner in true black. When I asked the SA for it he said he thought it had been discontinued but found me one. I can't wait to have a go with this! Also how cute is the packaging! This is my first ever Clinqiue product and never knew they came like this. Gorgeous!

That's it for my little haul. I tried so many swatches of lipsticks in MAC. Chatterbox, Costa Chic, Vegas Volt and Impassioned all of which I want!

What are your fav lippies, I'd love to know, I'm sure they'd make it onto my list! haha!


  1. Ohh, lucky you! I so want to buy MAC Russian Red but need to save up for that one first! X


  2. Great buys :) Beauty Marked looks gorgeous xx

  3. Oh great buys! I had been pondering Angel or Hue for ages and when I had my Back2MAC, I opted for Angel... yet it has just randomly disappeared! Guess it wasn't meant to be and will be trying Hue! :) xox

  4. Ladyblush looks gorgeous, as does Hue! Beauty Marked is a fab colour for your eyeshadow collection..I think it's got that 'special something'. It's not one of those really dupable colours.
    Would love to see a review of the clinique eyeliner. I've only ever tried Sleeks gel eyeliner!

  5. Beauty Marked looks such a pretty colour!

  6. The eyeshadow looks gorgeous! That picture you took is amazingly detailed (:

  7. Ooo I haven't really experimented with my beauty marked yet, can't wait to see what you come up with :) x

  8. If you love cream blushes.. Try something special by MAC.. It's a peachy tone and I thin it would look stunning on your skin tone.. Especially now that summer is just around the corner..

    Let us know how the clinique gel liner works for you.. I've had my eye on it for a while but i've got my bobbi brown one to use up first..

    Also beauty marked is a gorgeous colour but when applied to the lids it looks black.. so the trick is to use it wet.. That way, you'll get the purpley tone..

    Awesome haul ;)
