I’ve been doing quite a bit of make-up shopping lately, so for this haul you get two hauls in one; a small drugstore haul and a MAC lip product haul.
Here are a few drugtstore pieces, I’ve picked up recently. I love EOS lip balms, and I’ve been wanted to try out the sticks and found this set of two lip balm sticks in the vanilla bean scent. I love vanilla scented things, and the scent of these lip balms is one of my favourite vanilla scents in a product. They smell like vanilla ice cream, which is so delicious! I’d never heard of the Rimmel Clear Complexion Clarifying Powder before. It claims to minimize breakouts (!), control shine, and mattify the skin. I actually haven’t tried it out yet, but if it actually minimizes breakouts, it’s a winner. I thought it was time to try out a new eyebrow pencil, and I’ve heard good things about the Maybelline Brow Ultra Slim pencil, so I picked it up in the shade 04 Medium Brown. I’m going to try it for the first time tomorrow. The last thing I purchased in the drugstore section is the Wet n Wild Prime Focus Primer Serum. I’ve already used it a couple of times, and so far I like it.
MAC lipticks are some of my absolute favourites, so I purchased a few more recently. I also purchased a lipglass, which is very unlike me, since I rarely wear a glossy lip, but all of a sudden, I’m kind of into it.
So the lipglass I picked up is the classic red shade Ruby Woo. This one is from the limited edition collection Luna Illusions from earlier this year, so obviously the packaging is really pretty. It was on sale too, which is why I decided to get it. Red is my go-to lip colour, so I thought it would be nice to be able to make a red lip glossy. I’ve worn this once so far, and I loved the way it looked. I found it quite comfortable to wear too.
I’ve been wanting a very warm, yellow-based nude brown lipstick for a long time, and I finally found it in the lipstick called Kinkster. The picture doesn’t do the colour justice, but you’ll see it in action soon. This lipstick is apparently from some nude lipstick collection I didn’t know about, but I’m really glad I found it.
I decided to get another shade from the Bronzing collection. This is the shade A La Plage and it’s a lustre finish lipstick, which I haven’t owned from MAC before. It’s quite sheer and glossy, which is the complete opposite of what I usually go for when it comes to lipstick, but as I wrote earlier on I’m kind of into a glossy lip these days, and this shade is really pretty.
Last, but not least, I had to have the MAC Maker Barbie collaboration lipstick. I loved Barbies as a child, and this is the perfect Barbie pink lipstick. This is not a colour I usually wear, but I like it a lot more than I thought I would.
