MAC and Body Shop Haul!

May 1, 2014

Hey Everyone!

I went shopping with some friends and my boyfriend yesterday and I picked up some new makeup and skincare stuff that I thought I’d share. As soon as we got there I hit up Mac and it turned out to be like a Mac classics haul because all the products I picked up are pretty famous. I honestly own basically nothing from Mac (only 1 highlighter and 1 eyeshadow) so these products are all ‘new to me’ products. I also ended the trip at The Body Shop for a couple things, as it was Buy One, Get One 50% Off.

Mac

Mineralize Skinfinish Soft and Gentle

First thing I picked up is like I said, a Mac classic. It’s the infamous Soft and Gentle highlighter. I have been eyeing this for a long time and I finally decided to try it out. It’s very different from any other highlighter I own, much more golden and bronzey. The other highlighters I have all have a pretty light base, whereas the base of this is much darker. I think this will be really good for a summer glow. I have another Mineralize Skinfinish in Lightscapade that I don’t really enjoy, but I did notice that they’ve updated the packaging. The packaging on my  newer one (soft and gentle) is really sleek, it’s definitely an improvement. The old packaging was a bit clunkier, but I do wonder if there was more product in the old packaging.

Mac Lipstick- Creme Cup

I actually own no Mac lipsticks. Bizarre, but I only recently got more into lip products, so until recently I didn’t have any. Mac lipstick in Creme Cup is pretty classic and I can honestly say that I see why. I wore this today and it’s definitely a ‘my lips but better colour’. This is the perfect neutral pink to wear everyday. I am already in love.

Pro Longwear Concealer

The last thing I got at Mac was the popular Pro Longwear Concealer. The concealer I have been using is okay, but I figured I’d try this to see what the hype was about. I picked this up in the shade NW20, as that’s the shade my sister uses and our skin tone is pretty similar. I used is today and although it does cover darkness, it really doesn’t brighten as much as I’d like, so I think I’ll continue to use my NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk with it and see how that goes.

The Body Shop

I went into The Body Shop looking for a specific scent and I’m happy to say that I found it. I saw EmilyNoel83 talking about a new peach scent and I wanted to see if it smelled as good as she said.

Vineyard Peach

This smells amazing. I can’t get enough. It has such a fresh springy scent. For Canadians, you know the Peach Drink that Tim Horton’s sells? Ya it smells like that and Fuzzy Peaches candy. It’s just sweet enough, but not sickeningly. It’s very thick in consistency and takes a long time to sink in, so if you don’t like that it may not be for you. My skin is dry and I like how moisturizing this is. I really like fruity scents and this is the perfect one. MMMM :). I also picked up the matching body spray. What I like about this is that the scent lingers so you’ll just get small notes of it throughout the day.

There you have it, some of my shopping day finds. I hope you enjoyed this post, let me know in the comments what you’ve hauled lately. Also if you liked what you read, feel free to share this post, I would greatly appreciate it!

Bye for now!

      Creme Cup is the most perfect everyday pink. I have a feeling it’ll be my go to for a long time!

    I’m a sucker for TBS Vineyard Peach. I was contemplating buying the set the other day as peach is only available in the UK once a year. I think you just reminded me why I love it…. I’ll be getting it next time I’m in a TBS! 🙂

    You use the jumbo eye pencil for concealer? I have been using NC15 in the pro-longwear concealer but my skin is so fair it doesn’t really highlight like I would like. I thought about buying the setting powder but don’t really want to spend that much at the moment. Let me know how you use the eye pencil!

      I use my regular concealer and then I was taking the Jumbo Pencil and lightly drawing a little under my eyes (sort of where the bags were the deepest) and then down my nose and on my cupid’s bow just to brighten. I don’t think it would work as a concealer, it’s far too waxy. If blended really well with your fingers and you’re super fair, it seems to work! I don’t have a lighter concealer, so this seems to do the job!

    The soft and gentle highlighter looks so pretty! Might have to put that on my wish list!

      It’s definitely a cult favourite! It’s so different than some of the champagne highlighters I have, a great add to my collection. Thank you for reading!
