LUSH Goodies :)

Hi girlies,

I hope you all had an amazing christmas & all excited for the New Year! :)

All the hype on twitter definitely tempted me to realms of lush & im glad it did! I was wanting a few bits & bobs anyway so what better time to pick them up when their sale is on?

For those of you who dont know, (which im sure you do by now but i shall refresh your memories!) For every £20 you spend in Lush, it doesnt matter what you spend it on christmas goodies or normal products you got to choose a christmas gift for freee! :)

I know that in some stores you could choose a goodie bag full of christmas things for every £20 spent but that wasnt the case in my lush, it was christmas gift boxes only! I found out about this offer around christmas eve time & i knew for sure i wouldnt be stepping foot into town anytime around christmas/boxing day!

So i went in yesturday not expecting to be much left but im glad i did & im happy with what i came home with!

Heres what i picked up:

  • 'Sexy Boy' Massage Bar £4.95 - I love lushes massage bars, and this is limited edition so i had to pick it up! So cute!
  • 'Butterball' Bath Bomb £2.22 - Smells absolutely amazing!
  • 'Coal Face' Soap £5.01 - This is meant to be perfect for oily skin, so hopefully its going to keep my oil at bay! Smells like coal and licqourice! Excited to use this!
  • 'Big' Hair conditioner £9.60 - I cannot wait to try this! Have only heard good things about it! Hopefully it will make my hair super shiny! :)

As you can see my freebie was the starburst christmas box *Squeals* worth £24.95!

The starburst box contains:
  • Snow Fairy Shower gel 100gram
  • Fairy Tail Sugar Scrub
  • Candy Cane Bubble Bar
  • Snow Fairy Solid Perfume
  • Star Melt
  • Angel's Delight Moon Soap
  • Double Fast Luck Emotibomb
  • 10% Discount
    I absolutely love this box and i can honestly say i am one happy girlie! Angels delight soap, snow fairy & the star melt are my christmas lush favourites so i am really pleased i got the chance to pick this up!

    Did you pick anything up from the lush sale?

This Weeks MAC Haul :)

MAC products & MAC hauls make me extremely happy! :) I love showing you guys what ive picked up & also love getting inspiration from others from what they have bought!
These are just a few things that i picked up from selfridges when i went over to Manchester on Thursday.
Here they are:
  • 'Dollymix' Sheertone Shimmer Blush - I absolutely love the colour of this blush, such a gorgeous bright pink & reminds me of tippy from the Hello Kitty collection
  • 'Pink Nouveau' Lipstick - This is quite bright for me and is stepping out of my comfort zone a little but thought it would be perfect for a night out
  • 'Snob' Lipstick - Love love this lipstick, such a perfect pink colour
  • 'Carbon' Eyeshadow - Everyone raves about this eyeshadow and thought that it would be perfect to use as a eyeliner or for a smokey eye
  • '219' Pencil Brush - I adore this brush already, perfect for the crease
  • '266' Angle brush - thought this would be perfect for eyeliner under the eye
I hope that you like everything that ive bought guys, im slowly but surely building up my make up collection! :)

My Small Mac Mineralize Skinfinish Collection + Swatches!

Hi girlies!
Feels like forever since ive posted! :) I have a haul post to show you all, but when have i not! hehe so i thought i would do something a little different & show you my small but growing MAC MSFs, some swatches & what i use them for!
I currently own 6 MSF's (which includes the MSF natural) & i absolutely love them! They are so sparkly, which i love!
Here they are...





Clockwise from top they are:
  • Smooth Merge (Trio colour one) - This is my most recent purchase from Tallulahbella's blog sale & i absolutely love it! It came out with the Colour craft collection & i use it all swirled together for a gorgeous, shimmery pink blush colour!
  • Sunny by Nature - This also came out with the colour craft collection and it is more matte and less shimmery than the other MSF's. I adore this colour and it makes an amazing bronzer
  • Cheeky Bronze - This is extremely shimmery & is a nice, pale bronze colour which i use as a bronzer
  • Porcelain Pink - Porcelain pink was a repromote which is limited edition and again came out with the colour craft collection. This is a gorgeous, pale pink and works really nice as i light flush of colour on the cheeks
  • Soft & Gentle - This is also a fairly new purchase and is from the permanent line so is still available. I ordered this online when i saw a picture of Paula with it on and she looked absolutely stunning! Its very shimmery, but works really well as a highlight colour
  • MSF Natural in Medium - What can i say about this powder? It is truely amazing! I use it every single day & i love it over any foundation! I would highly recommend this to everybody!
And the swatches :)


Left to right:
MSF Natural in medium, Soft & gentle, Smooth merge, Sunny by nature, Cheeky bronze, Porcelain pink
Hope you all enjoyed this! :) What are your views on MAC's Mineralize Skinfinishes?
