Confessions of a Shopaholic: Additions to my MAC collection

Now, I can't really call this a haul, as I only bought two items - but I thought I would update you on the new additions to my Mac collection. I only started it a couple of months ago, so it is still very very small. If you'd like to see what I started with, click here.




I only really went in to look at the lipsticks. I was determined to not get the shade I did as I thought it would be over hyped, but I like to be able to browse and swatch to my hearts content. Seeing as I didn't have the time however, and the lipsticks were a pretty busy place to be, I caved in and got Velvet Teddy (£15.50).



Now I really don't have much to say about this, as I'm sure you've all heard it before, but it is, in fact, worth the hype and I am in love. It is the perfect brown nude shade, slightly cool toned on my warm toned lips, but perfect for pretty much any makeup look and occasion!



It's a matte finish (my favourite) and the stay power is perfect - something I find very rare in a lighter lipstick! I will definitely be buying more nudes in the future!

The next is something I was surprised I took the plunge and bought. After almost buying it in the Mac store in Bruges, I just couldn't resist this time! It is the cult favourite Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft and Gentle (£24).



Now this is something I knew I wouldn't be disappointed in, as the hype around it as a highlighter is strong, and from swatching it at the counter, I knew I needed it in my life.



The actual colour of the power lives up to the name, and is the perfect shade to match my skin tone. It's not too pink or too gold/yellow, but it is also packed with very fine glitters to perfectly highlight the face. It can be used sparingly for everyday, or intensely for a more dramatic, night time look.



I now know I'm a true MAC lover, and I am completely obsessed with their products and have a long list of products I'd love to add to my collection. They're products are truly the best quality and their finishes are just perfect.

I just need to decide what I want next!
