BEAUTY HAUL AND REVIEW

BEAUTY HAUL, MAC MAKEUP
 
Hi Lovelies
I hope your all well and 2014 is treating you kindly so far. Today I bring to you a haul which actually took place a month or so ago, but there were a few products I wanted to try out before, so I could let you how I got on with them. let’s get straight into it. 
 
Here’s what I picked up from the MAC store… 

 

First of all I picked up the much talked about MAC brush cleaner and I’m so glad I did. This stuff has saved me so much time. Before I purchased this I was cleaning my brushes weekly with baby shampoo, which don’t get me wrong, works like a dream. However it takes up a lot of time making sure all the suds are out. Now my routine is to wash weekly with this stuff and then deep clean with this and baby shampoo once a month.
Another product I had heard so much about was this fix+ spray, and now I know why. This stuff is amazing for a night out or long day; it really keeps your makeup in place. P.S. Don’t be fooled by the shine this gives when you first spray, it soon settles 🙂
Girl about town such a gorgeous colour In my opinion
Matte Relentlessly Red, this stuff is incredible. Being matte it is quite drying, but its staying power is just amazing and the colour is so gorgeous
I picked up a MAC 217 brush, some of you may have heard me harping on about this brush on twitter. It has honestly changed my life. I’d definitely recommend purchasing it if you haven’t already

 

My final purchase was of course an eye shadow. I chose Charcoal Brown in a refill pan as I plan on getting a palette 🙂 This is a perfect colour for my brows but can also be used in the crease to add a little depth to a natural look.

Avon

First up is this gorgeous eye shadow quad in the shade emerald cut

 

I decided to take a chance with this Mega Effects mascara and see if it was any good. I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to use and the look it gave.
Finally from Avon I purchased this base, Its not the best, and I wouldn’t re-purchase this one, however it was quite cheap so I’m not to worried.
Here’s a look I created with all 3 items.

 

Superdrug

 

 
I had purchased the Sleek Contour kit last year in medium but it was way too dark, so I got this again in light and am so chuffed with it. I love using this on a night out to really define my cheek bones 🙂  
This is my second Sleek eye shadow palette and I love it just the same! This one is sunset, the colours are so pigmented and go on like a dream. I LOVE THIS!!

 

Finally from Superdrug I decided to try the Barry M Gelly Hi Shine nail polish in Pomegranate. It’s a gorgeous colour, goes on lovely and looks gorgeous on, however it didn’t last as long as I’d hoped. It looks so gorgeous though that I think I’d repurchase this in a few more colours. 

 

Newlook
 
My final purchase of this haul was from Newlook. This little nail set was at the checkouts (I know, I’m a sucker for the stands at the front haha) I’ll be doing a full review on these sets shortly 🙂 
And that’s it from me, I hope you enjoyed this haul. I’m sorry if I made any of you add anything to your mental wish list, which I know I do with every haul post I read.
Have you tried any of these products? What are your thoughts?
