MAC Haul: To The Beach & Pret-A-Papier & Swatches

Hi Ladies, How are we all? Hope you are all well & enjoying the long weekend!

I have a MAC haul for you which is very overdue i know, so sorry about the delay!

Onto the goodies...

♥ To the beach: 131 Brush - £27 ♥
♥ Permanent: Well Dressed Blush - £16.50 ♥
♥ To the beach: Beach Bronze Cream Bronzer - £18 ♥
♥ Pret-A-Papier: Cut to fit Eyeshadow - £11 ♥
♥ Pret-A-Papier: Tissueweight Eyeshadow - £11 ♥
♥ To the beach: Lazy Day Lipstick - £12.50 ♥
First Impressions:
  • 131 Brush - Have lusted after this forever & was probably the only thing i wanted from To The Beach! Absolutely love it & it hasnt dissapointed! Perfect for cream blush & i have even used it for foundation!
  • Well Dressed Blush - I cant believe i didnt own this before! Perfect baby pink blush for my pale complexion, love this & think every mac lover should own this!
  • Beach Bronze cream blush - I purchased this from the gorgeous Marcia as she didnt get on with it! I personally love it, it s quite greasy which on my oily skin isnt preferable but i can live with it! Its a more orange toned bronze with a hint of shimmer, which i feel is quite sheer on my pale skin
  • Cut to fit Eyeshadow - A reddy brown eyeshadow, which as a neutral girl is perfect to add a bit of colour/darkness to the crease
  • Tissueweight Eyeshadow - A great peach neutral that has a slight shimmer, perfect for an all over the lid colour!
  • Lazy day lipstick - I knew i needed this lipstick before i even saw it, a gorgeous baby pink lipstick which is a lustre so it is sheer but easily buildable, i even had to pick up a back up of this! A gorgeously, wearable everyday lipstick!

♥ Swatches ♥

  7. is the 131 brush a flat topped brush? I see it being more like a foundation brush, like a badger 190? hmm... I dunno... I bought the 130 though :)

  8. this collection looks gorgeous x

  9. Ooo I want that Lazy Day lipstick so bad! I might have to buy it when I get paid :) xx

  10. I seem to have completely bypassed this release! I'm intrigued by the 131 though and Lazy day looks nice. I've been considering Well Dressed for such a long time, I really ought to cave and get it ;)
