Yesterday me and my sister took a trip to Westfield in London, and I finally got to use my Pro Card. Naturally I went a bit crazy, but I do get a discount so I like to justify it by that.. sorry bank balance! I picked up some bits I’ve been wanting to try for a while, and here’s what I got..
We’re start with face products..
First I picked up the Volcanic Ash Exfoliator which I’d been wanting to try since I saw it on the lovely Shaaanxo’s blog. I tried it last night and so far I’m loving it. After using it I saw a visible difference in the size of my pores and my skin felt so soft and clean afterwards. I’ll have a review up after I’ve tried it some more.
I also picked up the Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft & Gentle, which I’m sure most people have heard about at some point. It’s so raved about in the beauty community so I thought I’d give it a try. I’m also loving the new packaging it comes in.
Lastly in the skin products I picked up the Face and Body Foundation which really drew me in by containing 120ml of product. I think it’s going to take me a while to get through it all! I got matched with the shade N1 which is perfect for my NW15-20 skin tone. I used this today and it feels so lightweight on the skin whilst giving a light-medium buildable coverage. I’m really liking it so far, and can see myself reaching for it more in this hot weather as it doesn’t feel heavy on the skin.
Next we have eyes and lips. I’ve never really been into lip liners, and just skipped it altogether. But I wanted to try some from MAC to try and bring them back into my routine. So I picked up the Lip Pencils in Whirl (dirty rose colour) and Magenta (a vivid pinkish-purple).
Continuing with lips I also picked up the Lipstick in Brave (a pinkish beige). I got this after seeing someone use it in a tutorial and I fell in love. As soon as I got home I applied Whirl lip liner with brave on top and they pair together so well, it’s my new favourite lip combo.
Lastly I picked up an Eye Shadow in All That Glitters, I’ve never been much of a fan of MAC eyeshadows, I’ve always preferred Stila and Urban Decay, but I wanted to give this one a try as it looks so pretty.
So that’s everything that I picked up, to be honest it felt like I brought more in store so I don’t feel as bad now. I’ve also got another haul going up tomorrow featuring mainly Kiko and a few other bits. Have you picked up any new make up bits lately?
