A small haul

So today I ventured down to Bluewater shopping center and picked up a few bits. I have run out of my studio fix fluid and fancied a change so I decided on NARS sheer glow after all the rave reviews I got. I went to Space NK (who's customer service is appalling) and was matched up to Mont Blanc. I can't wait to try this out and will do a review after trying it out for a bit.

I also went into MAC to check out the latest offerings from the Tartan Tale collection and ended up buying two of the pearlglide eyeliners in petrol blue and undercurrent.

The picture quality is poor but it shows the shimmer in the product and you can get a clear idea of the colour. The one on the left is Petrol Blue and the one on the right is Undercurrent. They are both gorgeous colours and I think they are quite unique, I know I have nothing in my collection like these!

After swatching them on my hand I tried to smudge them but found they did not budge. 5 hours later the swatches are still on my hand so I am very impressed with these.

I think the fact that they didn't smudge means you could get away without setting them with powder too and I may even try using them as an eyelid colour.

Apart from the two pearlglides I was not impressed with this collection at all. I was tempted by the Romancing lipgloss, but not enough to get it. Everything is pretty but nothing else is truly unique or that pretty.

I think the sets are good for a person just starting to collect MAC, but I think someone who has quite a few of their products will already have dupes for most the colours in the palettes. However I do really like the brush bag sets, and I was tempted by the purple eye bag which had a fluid line and pigment in them as I don't actually own that much purple.....

Anyway today was a good shopping day and I also managed to get two pairs of sensible flat shoes and a pair of trousers, yay!


  1. Lovely haul! I have that Petrol Blue liner (somewhere- lol). Enjoy all your new treats x jeanie

  2. i werent too impressed with the collection either.. but i am soo loving my courting lilac lipstick :) x

  3. Thanks! I can't wait to start playing with them, but I won't be able to until monday :( x

  4. I've been wearing my sheer glow a lot recently. I don't know if it's better than all the other foundations (mostly MAC) I have but I like it.
