Shopping Shenanigans: Featuring My First MAC

Shopping ShenanigansHey everyone! Last Thursday my brother and I went on a little shopping trip and of course I wanted to tell you about my day so what better way to share it than through a post?! I’m very excited to share this post with you as I bought my first ever MAC lipstick!!! Read on to find out which shade I chose. The morning started with a McDonald’s breakfast – their hot chocolates are absolutely delightful! My brother and I then traveled to Hamilton which is roughly 1hr and 30mins from where I live.

MAC SyrupIsn’t it gorgeous?!

Not long after arriving I bought my MAC lipstick. At first I was apprehensive about paying so much for a lipstick but you do pay for quality. I’ve read so many blog posts championing MAC lipsticks and I wanted to try one for myself and see what all the fuss is about. After standing at the MAC counter for what seemed like ages – and with my hand covered in swatches – I finally settled on Syrup which is described as a cloudy pink shade and has a lustre finish. I immediately fell in love with the packaging, bullet shaped casing and vanilla scent.

Nails - It's Frosty OutsideWhile my brother was browsing around a shop I captured this image of my nails. I’m wearing OPI’s It’s Frosty Outside from the Mariah Carey Holiday Sands collection.

Mother's Day GiftI also popped into The Body Shop to purchase a Mother’s Day gift for my mum and the lovely lady behind the counter gift wrapped it for me. I selected a Shea soap and a bottle of White Musk fragrance mist.

Following lunch I bought a bottle of Rimmel’s Match Perfection Foundation. I didn’t intend to buy a new foundation but decided to take the plunge and purchase it anyway. Wherever I went on Thursday I couldn’t help but look at the makeup displays and I happened to spot 010 Light Porcelain and 081 Fair Ivory. I swatched both on my hand and liked the look of Fair Ivory more. I’d previously sampled Rimmel’s Lasting Finish 25hr Foundation inΒ 100 Ivory (read my review here) which was slightly too dark for me so the lighter shade is a better match.

Overall, I had a lovely day out and I am really pleased with my purchases!

I hope you enjoyed reading about my day and seeing the new makeup I bought. I can’t wait to incorporate both of these into my regular makeup routine! Let me know if you’ve tried these products!
