Pay Day Treats

I have no self restraint.

As soon as pay day came around I was straight on the Debenhams website placing an order, I'm unable to control my shopping urges - obviously. I've brought a lot of new products recently, so I'll spread the hauls out across a few blog posts and here's the first installment - hello Mac.
The first product I popped in my basket was the new Mac Mineralize Moisture Foundation because of all the hype surrounded by it. Wayne Goss, YouTube extraordinaire raved about this recently so therefore I had to get it. I got this and all other face products in NC25, in case you were wondering and this is the ideal shade for when I've applied fake tan.
Another product I'd wanted to try was the Mac Studio Tech foundation which I've been eyeing up for a while now. This offers full coverage and leaves an airbrushed finish, for some it would definitely be too heavy but I love it so far! I've also been lusting after the Full Coverage foundation but as far as I'm aware you need a Mac Pro card to be able to get your hands on that?
I also got the Mac Studio Fix Plus Powder which I've seen mentioned on multiple beauty blogs recently, it adds a little extra coverage and has a beautiful satin finish - definitely one of the best powders I've used in a while.
And finally, the last few products I decided to get were the Philosophy BB cream which has rave reviews on the Boots website, a clear Mac Brow Set and two of the Mineralize lipsticks in 'Everyday Diva' and 'Natural Luxe'.
So far I'm not massively excited by the Philosophy BB Cream, or the Mac Mineralize Moisture Foundation as they've both not lived up to the hype but I adore everything else. Full reviews to come!

Anyway, I hope you all have a lovely Bank Holiday Weekend, I'll be stuck at work but I'm sure when I look on Twitter or Instagram at what others are up to I'll be able to live vicariously through them, haha!

  1. Going to Mac it is impossible to only get out with one product or "just looking"...IMPOSSIBLE!

  6. I use Lightroom for my images but a lot of my friends use GIMP - it also works quite well once you get the hang of it.

    Love your MAC stuff!

    1. haha, I randomly stumbled upon it on the Boots website so I wouldn't worry it was just by chance that I discovered it. Undecided on it so far though I think I prefer the Garnier one better! x
