I know I had Mac items in my What I had for Christmas post but they weren’t things that I bought myself so I, still, consider this my first Mac haul!
I was really lucky to have been bought some gorgeous things from Mac
by my wonderful fiance but there’s still a few things I’ve really wanted to try from the brand so I decided to invest some of my Christmas money in some key pieces.
One eye shadow (in the pan as I have a tin where I keep some de-potted shadows and I am Not paying extra for some plastic casing!), one paint pot and one lipstick.
The shadow that I picked up is ‘All That Glitters’ as I’d seen it in so many videos and I just had some sort of weird fixation on it! As it happens, it’s quite similar to a lot of shadows that I have in palettes but I do like it, none the less, and I definitely do like the Mac formula (Which you’d hope I would considering they’re £10 even just in the pan!)
For my first ever Mac lipstick I picked up ‘Syrup’ – I won’t lie, there’s something special about the feel of the packaging of Mac lipsticks… they feel Good quality and Nice.
This was something else I’d been fixated on for a while after seeing it in a number of videos/posts and I just really wanted it, I am very pleased with it and I Do see why people have Mac lipstick addictions (even if they are £15)
Lastly I picked up a Paint pot in ‘Bare Study’ – I’ve wanted a really neutral cream base, with a slight shimmer, for a while so this was the obvious choice. I wanted to see what all of the fuss was about with paint pots and I do have to say, I like it.
All in all, I quite love all three of my Mac purchases – Will you suddenly see a tonne of Mac hauls from me? No, I’m afraid not. If I had the money then, maybe, but I definitely will be sticking to my drug store purchases for the rest of the year (Other than the hauls that you’ll see which were also bought with Christmas money!)
