This week is just flying by with the double bank holiday and last week went even quicker! I wish time would just slow down sometimes so I can take in all the wonderful things and enjoy life. However, although I am very much enjoying life, working life is only just beginning and retirement won't be for another 60 odd years so for now so until the days where I can sit on my big swinging chair in the garden watching the sun go down sipping on my coke float, or if feeling adventurous maybe even a little Cherry with my old age I'm just going to have to go with the flow and dedicate those Sunday's for pure relaxation and possibly blogging!!
I hope you've all had an amazing Jubilee Weekend and have been getting up to exciting things?!
Recently I took a trip to Westfields which for those of you who don't know it is a GIGANTIC shopping centre in London with nearly every possible shop in it from your Topshop to Gucci and Louis Vuitton. Although, you wouldn't catch me in those designer shops as I spent most of my time in MAC ooohing and aaaahing over what to buy and as it was my first purchase (sad I know) I thought I'd share it with you!
I remember the days where you just got given a clear bag (- okay yes, I have brought MAC products before, but that was years ago when I didn't know anything about makeup and would fritter my money away and get con'd into buying stupid things.) and now you get these paper bags! So lets take a peak inside!
Don't they all just look pretty in their packaging?! I love new products when it comes in packaging like this, I just want to keep it looking nice and new forever!
The first thing which I knew I wanted to get was a foundation and I had heard brilliant things about the Studio Fix Fluid so was pleased when the lady suggested this one. I also had her test it out on me so I could be sure it was what I was looking for in a foundation and I can tell you it definitely is. So for £19.50 this little gem became mine and I haven't looked back since!
I also purchased the foundation pump as the foundation are in a glass bottle with just a screw top lid and I am the most messiest person ever so me trying to get a tiny bit of foundation out a glass bottle each day just isn't going to happen without lots of spillages so for £3.00 I thought it would be best to get one and it also has an extra bonus of being re-usable and is also compatible with Bobbi Brown foundations!
Finally after having my make up redone by a MAC makeup artist and looking in the mirror I noticed something I never really notice from being so fair and blonde... I HAD EYEBROWS!!! I was so impressed with my new look and had never thought to invest in an eyebrow pencil that I immediately brought their eyebrow crayon in the shade Lingering for £11.50 and I was also really pleased when she complemented me on how neat my eyebrows were, so I must be doing something right with this plucking business which now seems like a chore!
So here is my first proper purchase! Reviews on the foundation and eyebrow crayon will be coming soon. Have you brought anything from MAC before? What's your favourite product?
