So recently I came back to live in Liverpool for University and I thought since there's a MAC shop here I'd take the opportunity to buy a few bits from there as in my home town there is no MAC store or MAC counter for at least an hour and a half drive/2 hour train journey so I took the opportunity when it arose, to visit the store, even though I know I live in the Liverpool all year round but hey, I can't be buying MAC stuff all the time can I? Any excuse...
I also paid a visit to Superdrug for a few bits I needed to stock up on like the L'Oreal Micellar water make up remover and the Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder which are essentials in my make up drawer! I also picked up a few other things which I will get into in detail.
L'Oreal Skin Perfection Advanced Correcting Serum £11.99 (usually £16.99)
I hadn't really heard a lot about this before I bought it. I;d seen it mentioned on YouTube by Nicole Guerriero and she said it was a holy grail amazing product that really helped her skin. So obviously I had to pick it up as my skin stays red for a week or two after any spots disappear which is really irritating for me, so hopefully this product will help!
L'Oreal Skin perfection 3 In 1 Purifying Micellar Solution £4.99
This stuff doesn't need me to say anything good about it because everyone already knows it's amazing! I'm on my 3rd bottle and I have this one for when my current one runs out. I got this for £4.99 but in ASDA and Bodycare you can buy it for £3-3.99 which is amazing because this stuff really does rival Bioderma! One cotton pad and a bit of this takes off any stubborn make up and it's so gentle you could douse your eye in it (not that I recommend this) and it wouldn't even sting. Such a good buy!
Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder in 001 Transparent £3.99
All my oily skinned girls out there will know what a lifesaver product this is. I am OBSESSED with this powder and have bought countless ones. I am a bit OCD so HAVE to use all of a product up before starting a new one, my current powder has hit pan hard and literally only the outer edges are still in the pan and I'm still going with it! This powder keeps me matte even on the hottest of days which is hard for me to do as my skin is so oily. I do need to blot every now and again but this definitely prolongs the wear of my make up.
Maybelline Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner in Intense Black £7.99
Gel eyeliner is always something I've wanted to venture into. I saw this one recommended by Jaclyn Hill on YouTube and definitely thought I should try it as her eyeliner is always flawless and it went onto the lid so so black I just couldn't really resist! I haven't tried it as of yet but I'll definitely review it when I have.
Sleek MakeUP Brow Kit in Light £8.49
One upon a time I had this brow kit in dark and I loved it but when i dyed my hair lighter I couldn't use it anymore and never got round to buying the light one. Every time I had money it was always sold out in Superdrug and I'm not really a fan of buying online. However I went into Superdrug a few days ago and there it was sat on the shelf so I picked it up without thinking as I knew if I left it there then I'd never find it again for months on end so it was a no brainer!
MAC Veluxe Pearl Eyeshadow in Woodwinked £12.50
I'm a MAC eyeshadow newbie so I went in there and was baffled by all the colours. In the end I stick to what I knew and chose a bronze colour as I know they make my blue eyes really stand out which I love. This colour is a "veluxe colour" meaning it has a sheen to it but it isn't "shimmery" so it doesn't have bits of glitter in it. I really love this colour and want to get more colours, hopefully enough to fill up a palette!
MAC Fix+ (Full Size) £14
This spray is a make up setting spray/primer/skin refresher. Whichever you want to use it for. Personally I use it as part of my skincare routine/during the day when my make up is looking a bit tired and worn out. I really love the smell of this spray I can't quite put my finger on what it smells of but it smells amazing and I'm hoping it will last me a while!
MAC Mineralize Skin Finish in Soft & Gentle £22
I've wanted this for a while but could never part with £22 for a face powder. however being in the MAC store took a hold on me and I just gave it and bought it. This is definitely a universal highlighter and will look good on any skin tone. It's perfect for day to night and I'm really glad I purchased it!
That was my haul and I hope you liked it as much as I liked buying it!
Have you got any of these products? What do you think of them? Let me know!
