MAC Haul

Having been watching youtube videos and reading blogs for a couple of years now, i knew it wouldn't be long until i couldn't resist mac cosmetics. It is one of the most popular cosmetic brands i see and hear about, but i have never figured out why. Last week, i decided i wanted to add some brushes to my collection. I already own quite a few smashbox brushes, which some i got as a birthday gift, and some i got in a smashbox set that i purchased from QVC a couple of years ago. However, on there own they are pretty pricey. So after searching online, i honestly couldn't find much in terms of brushes. I didn't want to spend a fortune, but everyone seems to rave about mac brushes, so i thought what the hell, it won't hurt to try one. I decided to get the 217. After reading reviews and seeing videos, i guess it looks versatile. It can be used for cream products, powders and use on the lid and in the crease.

I'm pretty happy with my purchase. I was hesitant at first, because £14.50 is a fair bit of money to spend (with my not very full bank it is anyway) But as a more positive way of thinking about it, it is in a way an investment. I know i will use this brush, it looks well made and feels it - So hopefully it will last long. I used it today and i really like that it is quite flat on either side but also tapered to use it for blending.

I also bought some brush cleaner. I have always just washed my brushes under the tap with a face wash or something (not great i know) but it was such a chore, i hope this saves me a little time!

What have you been buying lately?

New Shoes!!

At first the zip was completely stuck on one boot and I couldn't get it undone, I really didn't want to send them back because they came from Germany.. Which I didn't realise at the time of buying.. But luckily my dad fixed them! Yay! They are Blowfish Hybrid Boots and I got them from this Amazon market place store.. And the delivery was pretty fast considering that they came from Germany and best of all, it was free!

Product of the Week (Possibly a new weekly thing?)

This product isn't new to me, just a little gem i rediscovered after i sorted out all my make up.
This is Barry M Dazzle Dust in number 51. I think it is the most wearable dazzle dust i own, i usually go for the bright shades when buying these.

I love using this for a bit of colour, but when im not in the mood for anything fancy or over the top, i just sweep this on the lids and blend it a little and im done!

Whats your favourite Barry M colour?
