MAC and Origins haul :)

Yesterday I said I had some shopping planned and well, here it is :). Let's start with my little Origins purchase...

I heard about this product ages ago and contemplated buying it, but didn't actually get it. When I watched Tanya Burr's skincare routine video the other day I decided to bite the bullet and get it. The reason I couldn't decide for so long was because of the price, £20.00 a pop isn't a bargain.
It says it is a refreshing eye cream to brighten and depuff. Sounds great to me. On the box it says the product was formulated without: Parabens, Phthalates, Propylene glycol, Mineral oil, PABA, Petrolatum, Paraffin, DEA, Synthetic frangrance and animal ingredients.

After my little splurge on the eye cream I went and had a bigger splurge at the MAC counter and the CCO. .. Hehe.

I got two eyeshadows from the MAC counter - Woodwinked and Mulch.

Woodwinked is a 'warm antiqued gold'. Such a gorgeous colour. Make's my green eyes really stand out. Looks gorgeous on its own or paired with another shadow. LOVE this!

Mulch is a 'red brown colour with a bronze pearl'. It's really beautiful. Looks lovely smudged into the lash line with espresso over the lid. It is darker than in the photo.

Then I stopped off at the CCO and raided their MAC stand. I got two eyeshadows, one pigment and a cream colour base.

The first eyeshadow I picked up was Kid, a 'beige cashmere' colour. It's similar to Omega but is slightly darker and warmer.

Then, I grabbed Scene, a 'muted blue-grey' colour. I'm gonna used it to create a wearable day to night smokey eye.

 All the eyeshadows cost me £9.50.

L-R Kid, Woodwinked, Mulch, Scene (with primer)

In the middle of my little eyeshadow frenzy, I spotted Vanilla pigment - so of course, I had to get that too!

Vanilla is a 'soft ivory white' colour and it's gorgeous! It's shimmery and just lovely :).

It would look divine on the brow bone as a highlight or in the inner corner :)
It cost me £15.50.

L-R not blended, blended  (with primer)

Last thing I got was a cream colour base in Shell, a 'soft shimmery pink-beige' colour.


It would look amazing as a highlight if you had a tan!

It cost me £13.50.

Thanks for reading!
