So Today I Went To MAC

Hmmmm two sort of haul posts in a row I think shopping may have become my new obsession! Anyways I went to a MAC counter today and with me only being 17 (and having an extreme baby face) I was a bit worried. I've heard so many stories of snooty counter assistants just being mean BUT I have to say this was not the case at all they were so friendly and helpful! Didn't push sales on to you and gave you time to decide what you wanted.

 
So the first thing I looked at was a new eye shadow to use as a brow powder. Being naturally blonde I had heard that "Omega" by MAC was a great colour to use (If you watch Tanya Burr or Pixiwoo on YouTube I'm sure you've heard the same thing). So after a bit of help I settled on "Omega" and bought that at the price of £12 which I personally don't think is overly expensive as it is incredibly difficult to find a highly pigmented matte eye shadow on the high street for much less than that.


I also decided to treat myself to a new lipstick as I had been lusting after a Mac one for as long as I can remember. I have a few different nudes/nude pinks (maybe 3/4) so thought I would go for a wearable bright spring colour. I settled on one called "Vegas Volt" which is the most beautiful coral/red/pink colour! It's long lasting which is always a plus and doesn't settle too badly into my lips which are always very chapped no matter how much lip balm I apply. It cost me £14 which was a bit more of a jab at my wallet but hey it was a treat!

 

All in all I am extremely happy with my purchases but with the price of MAC makeup I don't think you guys will be seeing another "So Today I Went To MAC" post for a couple months :P

  1. Thank you for following my blog <3
    These products both look great, I hope you enjoy them!
    I've been tempted to buy and try Omega on my eyebrows too, as mine are very light.
