MAC Haul and Review

Hello Lovelies,

In my recent post on what I bought in the boxing day sales, I gave you a sneak peak at what I bought from MAC. I was so excited to finally pick some things up. The makeup artist was absolutely lovely, she chose some beautiful colours that really work well with my skin tone too.

Here's what I bought...



Paint Pot in Groundwork
This is the loveliest bronzy/brown shade. It gives a lovely wearable wash of colour to the eyes, or works as an amazing base for a neutral eye.

Lipstick in Plumful
Hands down this is my favourite lipstick EVER. Not that I own an enormous amount, but this is simply beautiful. It has an amazing formulation (its a lustre), feels good on the lips and really complements my skin tone. It is a gorgeous plummy red shade that is just dark enough to have an effect, but not too dramatic either. It can be dabbed on the lips for everyday wear, or worn opaque for a night out. Bloody love it!

Eyeshadow in Coppering
I bought this as a slightly more dramatic edition to my neutral palette, it is a gorgeous red/copper shade that is surprisingly very wearable.

Blush in Blushbaby
This was one of those 'I shouldn't buy anymore so ill leave it, but then you go back to the store later and pick it up' purchases :) Dreadful as that is, I do not regret it at all. I don't think I own a blush like this. Quite simply, it is soft, matte, contouring loveliness.

Writing this post, I realise just how much I bought :P. I must say though, I am very pleased with all the products and have already used them multiple times in the last week.

Have you bought any new makeup items recently?
Much Love
Lou
