MAC Haul

Hey there,

So if you watched my video this weekend, you might have seen that I recently did a little MAC hauling and for once there wasn't a lipstick in sight..


So as you might be able to see I picked up a few bits recently, most of which I had been eyeing up for a while. So up first I picked up a new 15 palette and insert. I have been planning to buy a new one for a while now because they are so much easier to store and use than each individual pot.

To go with that new palette, I picked up four new eyeshadows to start the new palette off. I picked up the shades Brule, Patina, Beautiful Iris and Fig 1.

L-R Brule, Patina, Beautiful Iris, Fig 1

L-R Fig 1, Beautiful Iris, Patina and Brule

I picked up Brule and Patina as I have heard so much about these two shades but also because I have seen a few wedding make up videos recently because one of my best friends is getting married this year. I want to know all the best products to suggest to her or even lend her for the big day, so I thought it's best to pick them up for myself.
The other two shades Beautiful Iris and Fig 1 were picked up because 1) I'm partial to a purple eyeshadow 2) purple is my favourite colour and 3) I needed a dark and light purple shade because the ones I own aren't great.

L-R Stay With Me, Well Dressed, Warm Soul

Top- Stay With Me
Middle- Well Dressed
Bottom- Warm Soul

Next up I jumped into the world of MAC Blushes. I knew I wanted to pick up Stay With Me, a light peachy coral shade, after it got applied on my face during a recent trip into a London MAC Pro store. It's such a simple but beautiful shade. 
Well Dressed and Warm Soul were both shades that I have heard talked about. Well Dressed is a light pink shade perfect for pale faced ladies as a little pop of colour on the cheeks. Warm Soul is a blush I was pressured into buying by Kayleigh and Laura via twitter and I am not going to say no to those two ladies. 

Finally I picked Cherry Lip Liner (which I haven't swatched for this post but it is a simple red lip liner) and I also picked up Painterly Paint Pot.

This product is so difficult to swatch as it is nearly skin colour. I tend to use paint pots as bases for other eyeshadows. They have the strength to hold the eyeshadow in place all day. I love a good paint pot and I'm glad I picked up Painterly as it is such a simple shade that is perfect for easy, lazy make up looks.

That is my complete MAC haul (for now), if you have seen my twitter recently you might know I possibly planning another shop soon but more on that another day. What do you think of my buys? What shades do you think I need in my new palette?

Lots of Love,
