MAC, elf and Benefit haul

I went shopping!

Benefit Sugarbomb

I couldn't decide between this and Bella Bamba, they are both really lovely and the colours suit my skin colour really well. Bella Bamba has only just come out so I decided I would get this one first, as I have wanted it the longest :) It looks kind of weird with the 4 different shades but if you swirl your brush around them you get a really nice shimmery blush. You could also use the lightest peach shade as a highlighter on your upper cheekbones!

Mac Sheertone Shimmer Blush in Dollymix and Benefit Sugarbomb

This is my first Mac blush, can you believe it?! I wasn't sure what colour to go for (I bought all of these from the website so I couldn't see the colours properly) so anyways, I scouted fellow bloggers and saw that the colour most talked about seemed to be Dollymix. I have to say that when it came through the post I was a little shocked at how bright it was. I haven't used it yet but I am very excited to try it!

Left, Mac Dollymix. Right, Benefit Sugarbomb

Illamasqua Sheer Lipgloss in Rouse

I bought this Illamasqua lipgloss mainly because I wanted to see what all the fuss was about surrounding the brand, its a lovely sheer shade of bright pink and i will definately be buying more! 

Mac Viva Glam GAGA Lipgloss

I have been wanting either the Lady gaga Viva Glam Lipstick or the Lipgloss for a while (the original one not the new one) and i finally decided to get the lipgloss (lipstick next!) I love it! Its such a lovely colour, a pale bubblegum pink, and it smells amazing.

 Left, Mac Impassioned (Amplified) Right, Mac Pink Nouveau (Satin)

These are my favourite Mac lipsticks, Impassioned and Pink Nouveau. I bought Impassioned last summer whilst my sister had her make up done for her prom, I love the punchy bright orangey, red colour (if you can imagine what im trying to describe?!) Pink Nouveau was my first ever Mac purchase, and I am on my 4th one! Its such a cute barbie pink :)

Mac cremesheen lipstick in Shy Girl

I recently bought this lippy as advised by Rachel from Glimmer and Glow :) I love this colour, its such a subtle coral colour, completely different from my recent disappointment with elf...another post to explain that! It is also a cremesheen so is so moisturising and is like wearing a lipbalm!

Bye dolls x


  1. so jealous I'm desperately wanting to hit the mac counter but really poor till next month...awww lol. Really like the mac blush. Ive never had benefit blusher, is it any good??

  2. Ooh! Great haul! I have Bella Bamba and I <3 it, and Sugarbomb is actually next on my list for Benefit! =D And now I really want Shy Girl. It's not like I need another nude, but it looks so pretty! Haha!

    Enjoy your goodies!

  3. What a fun and great haul! I have the dollymix and pink nouveau and love it, though i wouldn't pair them together hah. I want bella bamba and coralista, getting them soon hopefully! =]

  4. thanks guys!
    @ the buttonboxx, i would say benefit box blushers and bronzers are some of the best around, they are more expensive than mac but last for ages!
    @ andree, sugarbomb is such a lush colour, cant wait to wear it in the summer! and shy girl is one of my new favs! it looks so lovely on, really glossy and a beautiful coral colour, love it!
    @ sylvia, coralista is my favorite blusher from benefit, and i agree, pink nouveau is lush! x

  5. Nice haul!:D I am loving all the nudes and pinks.:D
