MAC and BeneFit Haul

Wednesday, 14 September 2011
Hiya,

I did say I had another haul coming up and here it is!
MAC's Semi Precious Collection came out a couple of months ago and I couldn't get hold of the MSF I wanted- I did end up getting it now and was so pleased!


This one is 'Rose Quartz'. The best thing about it is that it can be used in three different (or more?) ways. The outer part is a gorgeous pink, a little coral- it is such a flattering shade for blush. The inner section is a shimmery champagne shade which is perfect for highlighting. Combining the two gives a pretty (but shimmery) colour that can be used for blush too.
I don't think the swatch really does justice to the actual colour pay off. I am loving how this looks and I think it is a good buy because it can be used for various purposes and in different combinations.

Next I got the very popular 'Satin Taupe' eye shadow.



I haven't used this shade yet but to be honest it doesn't seem like such an amazing shade. Obviously I might think differently once I have used it a few times. I got it in pan form which means that I can add it as the last eye shadow to my Z Palette.

Lastly, I got the new mascara by BeneFit. 'They're Real' has had a lot of hype surrounding it. I have found that there have mainly been positive reviews and it really seems like this mascara works well.


The bristles are the rubbery type, which is the kind of mascara I usually really like. I have yet to use this too but I am looking forward to using it to see if it really is as good as reviewers have said it is.

That completes this haul, what do you think of these items?

  10. I haven't tried any of the above products, but have been lemming all of them. I just hesitate to buy satin taupe because I have come to the conclusion that I (gasp gasp gasp!) hate taupes.

  12. Great haul!

    I didnt pick up Rose Quartz bc it didn't look that interesting in the pan, but swatched out, I love it!! Satin Taupe is also my favorite shadow!

    I'm not a huge fan of the mascara bc it doesnt hold my curl too well and it does flake a little.
