Mini M.A.C + Benefit Haul!

Monday, June 16, 2014

After a harrowing two weeks of tests and examinations, I decided to treat myself to a trip down to Sephora! I had a birthday gift card to use up anyway. Surprisingly, I felt myself drawn to M.A.C more than other brand, and ended up picking three things! 

I was searching high and low for the Benefit Pushup Liner but it was nowhere to be found! They had the display for it and everything but THE TESTER WAS NOT THERE. I was so frustrated!!! I was really psyched to play with it and actually see it in person. -okay rant over-

No matter, I picked up two M.A.C lipsticks, Ruby Woo and Chatterbox. Ruby Woo is a bright, cool-toned, vintage, 'perfect 50s' red. It is a retro matte finish and despite the fact that retro mattes are dryer than their regular mattes, I have been lusting after this for AGES and am so excited to finally get my hands on this. Chatterbox is a milky, neutral pink that is definitely brighter than your regular 'everyday' nudes like Creme Cup, for example. It is, however, not too bright or neon, and I think would work as lovely with a smokey eye as with a neutral look!

Their paint pot in Vintage Selection is another one that has been on my 'want' list since I first purchased my first one, Bare Study. It is a light, peachy-pink with a hint of brown and silver (or champagne? I can't really tell) frost. I think this would look perfect just by itself as well! 

Everyone and their mother's pet cat has been raving about the Benfit Gimme Brow since its recent release. Usually I don't bother with such hyped-up products (ooh, look at me being all hipster) but my Catrice Brow Designer just was not cutting it for my messy brow hairs. I also hate faffing with eyebrows early in the morning as mine are the most tedious. 

Overall, I'm really happy with my tiny haul and I really hope these products (especially the Gimme Brow) live up to the good reviews online! 

Have you tried any of these products before? What do you think?

  1. Well I'm glad you've found something that works better for your brows! I'm not in need of much browing but some plucking and I like using brow powder and that's it! I would love to try a few mac lipsticks but currently still own none! They're double the price here but I will eventually decide on a shade to try! Lovely little haul you have!

  3. I whip out the ol' brow powder occasionally too! My favourite is Joey Heely! Where do you live? I'm expecting your lips to look lush in the lustre/cremesheen finishes! Thank you!

  4. Don't wait any longer! The reviews aren't kidding when they say Ruby Woo lasts all day! I had my three meals and it only faded a little on the inside of my lips and oh-so-gorgeous with winged liner! x

  5. MAC lipstick - pink color - look so pretty! My fav :) will be following you <3
