The Just Before Christmas Haul


Those who follow my twitter would know I’ve won a £100 MAC gift card which you can read about in this post. Went shopping after work near enough everyday last week as it was mainly to purchase the household necessities and had forget to purchase one thing had lead to another shopping visit the following day. It is like a just before Christmas haul, more like a before the Boxing Day sales haul. But I highly doubt these will be on sale.


Cosmetic Bag: £12? from TK Maxx;


Revlon Nail Enamel in Cherries in the Snow: £6.49; Revlon Nail Enamel in Stunning: Free (free gift with a purchase of 3 Revlon items); Ciate Nail Polish in Pepperminty: £4 (Tk Maxx); Revlon Colorburst Lipgloss in Embellished: £7.99; Revlon Eyeliner Pencil in Aubergine: £4.29;


MAC Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder; MAC eyeshadow in Cranberry and Carbon;


MAC Satin Lipstick in Rebel; MAC Matte Lipstick in Please Me; MAC Prolongwear Concealer in NW20; MAC Liquidlast;

lace hair replacement systems for men and women

MAC Matte;

I wanted to purchase the MAC 219 pencil brush but they were out of stock. Hopefully I’ll get my hands on it soon! Also the Illamasqua Blush Up brush is sold out too! I can’t wait to try out the lipsticks. I have photographed these in my flat rather than my family home therefore the photography style and set is different and it was more of an experiment. What do you guys think of these photos? They seem generic and the same as many other bloggers out there. Maybe I should stick to my usual?

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE! Shop more Christmas photography backdrops from: katebackdrop

    I love MAC. Really like the two shades of lipstick you picked up. Can't believe you got so much for £100. I also love the varnish shades. Good haul!

    OMG Mac is also my favourite makeup brand! The colours you have chosen are brilliant – those gorgeous deep pink and reds. Revlon nail polishes are also excellent. Good choice! Very jealous!
