NYX & MAC Haul!! (Warning - Picture Heavy!)

Thursday, 22 April 2010

So as mentioned in my previous Post, Sammi and I ended up at Harrods and made a few NYX and MAC purchases!

Just in case you didn't know, Harrods stocks NYX products and their stand can be found on the 4th Floor right by Juicy Couture! :)

Here's what I got!

NYX

I've always wanted the jumbo pencils, especially Milk, as a lot of Beauty Gurus use it! The Pencils were £5.95 each, a tad bit more expensive than what you'd pay across the pond or Online,  but I felt the need to go and see the products for myself, have a little swatch of them and feel them. I was very impressed with the quality of them. I couldn't leave empty-handed so I picked these up...

Milk
Slate
Gold



This one was I a bit of an impulse buy! It's a cute pink lipgloss that I feel will go perfect with my Lucky Green eyeshadow by MAC. £4.95.

Pinky Natural





MAC

I picked these up because i've been looking for a good nude lippy. Freckletone is a Lustre finish, quite sheer, but can be intensified after a few coats. Shy Girl is a Cremesheen finish, with a pinky undertone. They were £12.50 each.

Freckletone
Shy Girl




Another Impulse Buy! Sheesh! A Nude Lipliner called Summerfruit...would go well with Freckletone. £10.



I wanted a Coral Lipgloss for Summer so I bought this one. It's called Lychee Luxe...strange name, but ok. Nevertheless it's a pretty colour! £12.

Lychee Luxe





And lastly Two more eyeshadows to add to my collection. Antiqued is a very pigmented Veluxe Pearl finish, would be great in the outer corner over Painterly for a Neutral eye. Gleam is a Lustre finish pink with gold undertones...Gorj! £9 each.


Can't wait to do Tutorials with these! :D
