So today I'm giving you a peep of my latest haul! - Make up haul of course! I believe in the saying "We can never have too much make up!"
Who agrees!? ;)
So the first thing I headed to while in the shopping centre, Medowhall, was the Chanel counter! I've always wanted to try a Chanel foundation, and I remember when I was a young teen, my grandma gave me lots of samples of Chanel's foundations, and ever since then I have had my eye on trying them! The foundation I got was Perfection Lumiere Long-wear flawless fluid make up with SPF 10. I was matched to the colour, Beige, which is number 30. I have combination skin, so a long wearing fluid will suit my skin best, it apprently has particles of powder inside, and gives a semi matte finish. I wanted to keep the colour true to my skin tone, as I can build up bronzer for a more golden colour! I will be doing a review on this foundation when I have finished my MAC studio fix fluid!
The next thing I got was the Soleil tan de Chanel, which is a sheer illuminating fluid. I swatched it when I was at a Chanel counter in Leeds, and thought it was just stunning! It will certainly compliment a tan on your face, and add that extra glow. You can use it in so many ways: as a highlighter on the cheeks, as a base, or a mixer in your foundation to add a bronze glow! Very happy with my purchases, I just need the sunny weather to come, so I can enjoy them!
This photo is rubbish! Never mind, I think us beauty lovers will easily be able to pick out what I've brought ;)
Two more MAC lipsticks, (I currently have 25! Is that bad!?) and the MAC mineralised finish in soft and gentle.
The MAC lipsticks I got were, CB96, what a random name to call a lipstick! But I currently have been lusting over orange toned lipsticks and I spotted this one amongst all the other Mac lipsticks, tried it on and loved it! It is a Frost finish and is a very metallic orange/bronze lipstick, and willmake gals with blue eyes, pop! I certainly haven't seen a lipstick like it before! The next lipstick I got was crosswires. It is a pinky/orangeish coral. It is so easy to wear, and I was after a new pink lipstick for spring that I could just wack on (which is possible as it is a cremesheen formula!!) This colour is perfect for me! Next up, is soft and gentle highlighter, which is just beautiful on the skin! It has quite a chunky texture, but does not look it when blended on the skin. It is a very glossy, light catching highlighter that is very universal! Every highlighter addict should

Soft and gentle highlighter on my finger!
This gorgeous lipstick was purchased when my bestie, see her blog here! Told me about an offer on feelunique.com. On groupon, I could purchase a £25 voucher for £15, so I went for it and brought it, and new exactly what I had in mine to buy, a YSL Rouge Volupte lipstick! After spending ages looking upon swatches on google images and pinterest, I decide to go ahead and buy Rose Asarine, which is a gorgeous fuchsia/reddy toned lipstick. It glides on the lips so amazingly smooth, no tugging at all, it is literally a dream to apply! Also, with one swipe, the swipe on your lips will be fully pigmented! The best part is, that is smells of mangos, hmm! I was so pleased I got it for the price I did, but truthfully? I would go pay full price for another!
I forgot to mention, when I was shopping at the Chanel counter, the lady kindly gave me this sample of the new Coco Rouge's that will be coming out very soon! I cannot wait to get my mutts on a Chanel lipstick!
I hope you enjoyed my long longgggg post on make up, ha! I am a true make up addict!
