My first ever blog post consists of a collective haul! :-)
These are just a few things i have picked up over the past two days from my local MAC, YSL and Nars counters, the CCO and also MAC online.

I will start of with my CCO mini haul which consists of MAC brushes. I have heard only good things about these brushes so i picked up my first 3!

These are them! They are the 129, 187 and 189. I plan to use the 189 for foundation, i know that it is such a huge brush but it is so soft and i think it will give my foundation a even application.

I have absolutely fallen in love with the 187! I have the GOSH stippling brush which i thought was similiar but there is absolutely no comparison at all. The MAC is so soft and 100% nicer and worth the extra money. This is such a multi purpose brush and i am so glad i picked it up! I will use it for foundation, buffing, blushing and bronzing, the list is endless!

The last brush is the 129 blush brush, i think this will be amazing for using blush on the apples of the cheeks. I am so glad i have finally started to build up a MAC brush collection and i cant wait for it to grow!

Next up was my MAC online order. I purchased 4 items, each of them been my first time purchases. I am a new MAC convert and i am trying out these items for the first time! The first ever MAC item i purchased was from the Hello Kitty collection, been the tippy blush and pink fish tinted lip conditioner and i still have them now!

Anyway back to the online order. These are the items i purchased:

It consists of:
  • Studio fix fluid foundation in NW20 - I have heard such good things about this foundation and i wanted to try it out for myself. I believe it is a full coverage foundation, which i love so im looking forward to using it.
  • Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Medium
  • Mineralize blush in Gentle - such an amazing raspberry pink colour with lots of sparkles
  • 'Close to real' lipstick from the High Def Collection - This colour is stunning! I am so happy i purchased this, it is a cross between creme d nude and gosh darling! Absolutely amazing nude lipstick.
Next up was the items i purchased from the NARS counter. I picked up my first 3 NARS products and they are:

  • Laguna bronzer - Amazing colour, with a bit of sparkle. Gorgeous packaging!
  • 'Roman holiday' lipstick - amazing sheer pink colour
  • Angelika blush - This is the most gorgeous blush i have ever seen. Light baby pink with sparkles - stunning!
As i was so impressed with the first 3 MAC face brushes that i purchased i decided to pick up 2 MAC eye brushes which were the 239 eyeshadow brush and also the 217 blending brush.

Lastly is the one item i picked up from YSL. It is one of the rouge volupte lipsticks in number 7 'lingerie pink'. This is highly talked about on blogger and youtube and seems to be a favourite. It is the perfect light barbie pink and i cant wait to team it with the NARS angelika blush!

Phew! That was a busy weekend! If you have got this far thank you so much!

My next blog post will be a little more about me! :-) Just wanted to get the huge collective haul out of the way first!
