MAC Haul :)

So, yesterday I went to my local MAC counter and had a bit of a splurge. MAC is expensive but worth it. You pay more for a better product (generally), better packaging (usually) and better costumer service (hopefully). Don't get me wrong, I love a bargain but I also love the high end make up because I feel you generally get what you pay for. And anyway, Nars is more expensive that MAC... (i'm making excuses to try and make myself feel better about my devilish shopping spree). Enough with my ramblings, this is what I got :) 

 First off I brought 4 new eyeshadow pans and a quad palette.


Top row L-R: Vanilla, Omega.
Bottom row L-R Soba, Espresso.
Each eyeshadow was £9.50 and the palette was £6.50.




I chose these colours so I can create natural, subtle eyes for sixth form. Omega on the lid, Soba in the crease, Espresso in the outer corner & in the brows and Vanilla in the inner corner and on the brow bone as a highlight.




L-R Vanilla, Omega, Soba, Espresso.



I also got Hue lipstick and Love Nectar lustreglass.


Hue is a pretty soft pale pinkish colour, It's a glaze finish which means it is very sheer. It was £13.50 which really isnt a bad price for a high end lipstick.








L-R Hue lipstick, Love Nectar lustreglass.









Love Nectar is a soft apricot pink with gold flecks in it. It is such a beautiful colour and looks gorgeous over Hue lipstick, It cost me £12.50.






The applicator is a small brush, It works well for precise application.




Finally, I got the 217 brush. This is by far the best blending brush I own, It's fluffy but quite flat so it sits nicely in the crease. Works wonders with creating a cut crease look :)


It cost me £15.00.





I hope you like my haul, thank you for reading :)
