Mini MAC Haul

2 comments



Hi everyone! I'm so sorry its nearly been a whole month since my last post. At the moment its right in the middle of wedding season for me so I'm super busy every single day! I'm going to try my best to get back into the swing of blogging as soon as possible, however if you would like to keep update with what I'm up to please 'like' my facebook page. I update on their most days with recent photographs of weddings and bridal hair and makeup ect. 

Todays post is a mini MAC haul which I ordered recently and heres what I purchased:


For some reason I've never tried a paint pot from MAC before even though I've heard them being raved about in YouTube videos for years. After a quick look at swatches of the different colours online I chose the colour 'Bare Study'. Its a pretty champagne/beige colour which will be a perfect base for eyeshadow. I'm really excited to try out this product to see if it is as good as Urban Decays Primer Potion which I also love as a base.


This lipstick is a repurchase for my makeup kit. Its one of my popular lipstick shades with brides as it is a beautiful brown toned nude. Its also very long lasting on the lips!


If you're a regular reader of my blog you'll love how much I love matte lipsticks. This shade has been on my 'want list' for such a long time and I don't know why I didn't purchase it sooner. At the moment my go to nude every day lipstick is 'Kinda Sexy' from MAC and I think this shade may replace that. Its the perfect every day nude colour and its one of the creamiest matte lipsticks I've tried from MAC.

I hope you enjoyed this mini haul! Have you purchased anything from MAC recently? 

Love

Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray | First Impression

2 comments




Hi everyone! Todays post is all about the Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting spray. If you're a regular reader of my blog you'll know I purchased this product last month from Debenhams. I've never really tried setting sprays before so I was really excited to receive this and see if it really worked. I also bought MAC Fix + spray which you can read my review of here. Fix + is more of a finishing spray where this product is a setting spray. It locks your makeup into place and is unlike other setting sprays as this product contains thermal control technology, which basically stops your makeup melting off in heat.

I've been testing this spray out for a few weeks now and I think it is incredible. It really does keep my makeup in place all day! I'm definitely going to continue to use this product.

Have you tried a setting spray? What do you think?

MAC Fix + | First Impression

5 comments




In my most recent haul (which you can find here) I purchased MAC Fix + for the very first time. Its always been one of those products that I wanted to try out but for some reason I just never got around to it. To be honest I wasn't really sure what its purpose was to begin with. At first I thought it was a setting spray but after some research online I discovered it has several multi-use purposes.

I've been trying out this product for just over a month now and I absolutely love it. I personally use this product as a finishing spray. I spray a few pumps onto my face when I have finished my makeup to take away any excess powder. I also find that if I'm redoing my makeup in the evening to go out this spray refreshes my foundation and concealer giving it a newly applied glow. Many people mistake this product for a finishing spray (like I did to be honest) however it is totally different compared to setting sprays such as Urban Decay All Nighter. I'll have a first impression coming up on my blog soon, so keep your eyes peeled for that.

Another great use for this product is spraying it onto a brush before applying eyeshadow. It turns the eyeshadow into a slightly liquid consistency making the colour much more vibrant and giving it even more lasting power.

I've been really loving this product lately and would really recommend it if you often wear full makeup looks or have to wear makeup for a long period of time. 

Have you tried MAC Fix +? What do you think?

Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion | Review

1 comment





If you saw my recent blog post (Debenhams Haul) you'll know I purchased the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion in 'Original'. Todays blog post is a review all about this miracle little product. I've been using this eyeshadow primer since I first tried the Urban Decay Naked palette when it was released a few years ago. Before using this product I didn't think eye shadow primers made a huge difference in terms making eyeshadow last longer but this product definitely changed my mind and I've loved it ever since. A high quality primer makes a huge difference in how your makeup looks. 

This product comes in four difference shades - Original, Sin, Greed and Eden. The original primer potion is a beige/cream coloured primer which suits every skin tone. To some extent it also neutralises red tones and provides a smooth case to apply eye shadow. The primer not only keeps your eye shadow in place without creasing; it also intensifies the eyeshadow colour and really makes the colour pop! 

It is a medium consistency and very easy to blend onto the eyes! I couldn't recommend this product enough if your looking for a eyeshadow primer that will keep everything in place and really accentuate your eyeshadow colours.
Whats your favourite eyeshadow primer?

Debenhams Haul | Urban Decay & MAC

1 comment



Firstly let me apologise for being slightly MIA on my blog in the last two weeks. Work has been very busy with weddings, makeup trials, photo shoots etc! Now wedding season is in full swing for me I decided to make a cheeky Debenhams order to get some new goodies for my makeup kit! Debenhams often do 10% off their entire beauty section so make sure you watch out for that. So here's what I purchased..


I've been a huge fan of this eyeshadow primer for years now, ever since I first tried the Urban Decay Naked palette when it was released. I chose the original shade as it compliments every eyeshadow colour. The shade of this primer is a beige/neutral colour that is very easy to blend. I see a massive difference in the lasting power of my eyeshadow when I use this product, hence why its an absolute staple in my kit. It also makes colours much more vibrant and vivid.


I decided that I wanted to give setting sprays a try and after some research this product seemed to be very popular. I went for the travel size as its a fraction of the price. I'm going to be doing a first impression on this setting spray very soon! Have any of you tried it?


Another very popular setting spray in the beauty world. I've been wanting to purchase this product from MAC for the longest time but for some reason it was just never a priority. I'm going to be doing a first impression and comparison of the two setting sprays on my blog very soon. I've been trying this out for a few days and so far I'm really impressed.


If you've ever had your makeup done by me you'll know this is my holy grail foundation. I'm slowly building up to own all the shades and this time I purchased NW40. I won't ramble on about this foundation too much as I have done a full review which you can find here.

So thats what I ordered from Debenhams this time! I'm hoping to be blogging more regularly for the rest of the month so please let me know if they're are any posts you'd like to see.

Love
