Make Up Haul



Hello loves! Long time no see, but unfortunately I've had show week, auditions and lots of essays due so there's really been no time. But I did take a nice trip to Westfield the other day and I thought I'd share my purchases with you guys.


So I picked up some lovely bits from MAC and Kiko, the stores in Westfield are huge and the staff were so lovely and helpful, I have heard some bad things about staff rudeness in MAC specifically, and as I'd never been to a MAC store before this day, I was actually quite nervous. But they were so lovely, and as I knew what I wanted they were able to help me quickly.

MAC Studio Fix Fluid (NW13)

So I have been wanting this for so long, and I've just not had the money for it, I've only ever used drug store foundations, and yes they look great when first applied, but if I've got a long day ahead of me, then I pretty much know my make up is going to look like poop by the end of it. I'd heard such good things about the Studio Fix fluid, so I saved up and got this beauty for myself. I have go say I absolutely love it, it stays in place all day, I went in to Central for the whole day yesterday, there was drizzle and wind and it still looked perfect when I got home at 11, I am in love!

MAC Pro Longwear Concealer (NW20)

And to go along with that I got the Pro Longwear concealer, and really my opinion on this is the same as the Studio Fix, it really does exactly what it says, it does not budge, and it really combats my dark circles, it's made me a lot more confident with those pesky dark circles!

MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot (Painterley)

I have also wanted one of these for the longest time too, my eyeshadow always smudges because I have quite cheap palettes, they're beautiful colours and great to blend but their staying power really isn't great, but since using this they are setting so well, and this way I don't have to fork out on expensive palettes, this literally does all that work!

MAC Lipsticks (Cyber, Twig)

I finally picked up some MAC lipsticks of my own! I haven't tried Cyber yet, but Twig has already had some serious love, they're both Satin finishes and, well Twig at least, is beautiful, stays put and is also very moisturising on my lips, can't complain at all, and I can see my MAC lipstick obsession starting here... (Expensive obsession, boo!)

Kiko Precision Lip Pencil (300)

I also picked up this little beauty, it's the perfect nude liner, my old one is slightly too dark for true nude shades, but this is perfect, goes lovely with Twig and Kiko is so reasonably priced!

Kiko Soft Light Powder (02)

Not that I really needed this, but at least I have a spare when I run out of powder! This is lovely on my skin and really evens everything out, a trusty little powder and again, so reasonably priced.

So that was my little haul for you guys, I hope you enjoyed reading and please check back for more posts.

  1. Great Haul!!! I was obsessed with Cyber during autumn.. I find that you can even tone easily but building it up slowly. As I found it quite dramatic when I first wore it. & nice KIKO purchases, my sister just brought me back somethings from there today actually so excited to try and definitely want to visit a store. Hope you like cyber as much as I do
