Birmingham haul

Yesterday I went Birmingham to do some shopping and I bought four things which I really love. Enjoy!!!
The first thing I picked up was the MAC mineralise skin finish in soft and gentle. This is such a beautiful highlight it is a champagne gold sort of colour. It has the perfect shimmer and let's be honest there is never to much highlight. I love the packaging it looks so sleek. This is the first time I have used a Mac highlight and I love it, I really like the fact you can use it as an eyeshadow as well.
I also picked up this hexagon shape pot in copper and it looks so pretty. This is a great pot for makeup brushes because due to the shape you can fit the smaller brushes into the corners where as in a circle shape it's harder to fit all your brushes in.
This Mac prep + prime is amazing! I love the smell of this product and it makes my makeup stay on for a lot longer. This also helps my eyeshadow become more pigmented because I spray it on the brush and then put it in the eyeshadow and it becomes a lot more pigmented.
In selfridges I saw this photo frame and I fell in love. I love the colour at the moment I seem to be loving the colour copper and rose gold. I've never seen a photo frame like this so that's why I bought it because it was different.

Boots haul

If you had read my last post you would be aware that I was in Croyde and I mentioned that I was going to do a haul. All these products I'm going to mention are all at reasonable price as they are from a drugstore. Enjoy!!!
The first two things I bought were for contouring one from maybeline and one from collection. The collection master sculpt is great because I find it so easy to blend so you can make the contour as sharp or subtle as you want. The highlight has a perfect amount of shimmer. The maybeline master sculpt has to be my favourite out of the two because I think the colour is just perfect for contouring and the highlight is great as well. With this product it comes with a great sized mirror and will be easy to carry around with me.
For along time I have wanted to try out the collection concealer because I have heard so many good things about it. I haven't tried this product out yet so I can't say whether I agree with the craze or not. The other concealer is from soap and glory and I have also wanted to try this out for ages. When I first tried it I thought it was quite hard to blend with a brush but then I tried it again and it blended a lot better with a beauty blender.
This foundation is great it suits my skin tone perfectly and I find that it doesn't go clumpy on some of my dry patches which I love. It is easy to blend with a beauty blender or a brush as it doesn't leave any strokes. It does last a long time but I can't say it lasts for 25 hours because I personally don't leave makeup on for that long I put it on in the morning and take it off at night.
The Rimmel match perfection powder is great I put it on my oily places on my face like my t-zone, under eyes and my chin. It keeps my makeup in place all day so I recommend you go out and by this.
This boujoir blush is the best from a drugstore in my opinion I got mine in number 34. I love this blush because when you apply it to your cheeks it is subtle and has a shimmer to it from the gold running through it.
This number 17 'easy on the eye' is a great palette it comes with 8 nude eyeshadows, 3 cream eyeshadows and a primer. This palette would be great for beginners of makeup because they are subtle colours and they are easy to blend. Also I love that it comes with instructions so for a beginner they will learn what to do.
