Beauty, Inside and Out.

MAC Haulin'

Dino's Beauty Diary - Beauty - Mac Haul

As you can probably guess, I went on a bit of a spending spree, and what girl can resist some quality MAC purchases?! I must admit, I've shopped sparingly at MAC in the past, but thanks to some of my lovely blogging girls (FrankieHannahSarah and Sian I'm looking at you) I dove in head first and came out with some amazing purchases!

Dino's Beauty Diary - Beauty - Mac Haul

MAC Sized To Go Strobe Cream (£10.00, here)
The lovely Frankie recommended this to me after I was moaning about my constantly dry skin. 'Strobe Cream' is meant to moisten and freshen dull and tired looking skin, and I honestly don't know how I've not come across this before. My skin is in desperate need of a fix, so I can't wait to give this baby a try.

MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation in NW10 (£21.50, here)
I couldn't resist this after seeing Sian's the other day, and brought it in the same shade as the foundation to give myself that matte finish. I'm glad that the NW10 shade seems to match my skin tone perfectly - I previously used a Benefit powder, which is more suitable for when I'm at least a little bit tanned!

MAC Lipstick in 'Heroine' (£15.50, here)
This was more of an impulse buy after spending ages flicking through all the different shades online. Out of all my lipsticks, I don't think I own a purple shade! Or if I do, I don't own enough clearly...;)

MAC Lipstick in 'Velvet Teddy' (£15.50, here)
I've been seeing this beauty mentioned a lot recently, so I knew it would be something I'd have to give a try for myself! Its the perfect nude shade and I love wearing this to work. Keep an eye out for a full review coming soon!

MAC Prep + Prime Lip (£13.00, here)
I've been on the look out for a primer for my lipsticks for ages, and figured I could give this a try. It smells like the typical MAC lipstick, and I can't wait to see if it actually works.

MAC Prep + Prime Fix+ (£15.50, here)
This was another recommendation from the lovely Frankie. It can be used both before and after makeup has been applied, and helps to refresh the skin and give makeup a flawless appearance.

MAC 217 Blending Brush (£19.00, here)
Every girl needs a blending brush. Actually, every girl needs a MAC brush, right?! My Real Techniques brush is amazing but I'm always open to trying something new.

MAC Isabel and Ruben Toledo Lipstick in 'Sin' (£17.00, here)
Originally I intended to go for the shade 'Diva', but it was sold out, so I was advised this shade was basically the same. It has a gorgeous matte finish and is probably the darkest MAC lipstick I now own.

MAC Studio Fix Fluid SPF15 in NW10 (£21.50, here)
You can never have enough foundations...right? My current foundation just felt too dark for me to use at the moment, so I figured this shade is perfect for me to use as it is pretty much my natural colour. Paired with the powder I think this would give me the perfect coverage!

Dino's Beauty Diary - Beauty - Mac Haul

MAC Sized To Go Pigment in 'Vanilla' (£10.00, here)
Another recommendation from Frankie, pigments can be used in so many different ways. I own a couple already, but Vanilla is the perfect shade. As I always seem to go for a golden smokey eye at work, this is perfect for me to use day to day!

Overall, I'm so happy with my purchases (even if I did spend quite a bit, oops..). What do you think of my haul - is there anything you'd recommend? Let me know in the comments below!

You have picked up some great stuff!! I love MAC but i've only tried their lipsticks so after seeing this i think i really need to try some other things from their range! I'm also looking forward to reading the Velvet Teddy review as i have had my eye on that for a long time! Lovely post, and your photos are brilliant! Xx

You picked up some really amazing pieces! I don't own much MAC so i want to do a bit of a haul like this. I really want to try Fix+, the prep and prime lip, the pro longwear concealer and the 217 brush.

Great post!

So many amazing items! I don't really own much from MAC as I can't afford it most of the time but I'm looking forward to building my collection.

I definitely had to stalk out your other MAC haul after reading your #2 haul. You bought so many fab products. I love the sound of the Strobe cream as I do like a dewy glow. I'm also seriously intrigued by the Prep + Prime lip product so will be interested to see how you get on with that. Velvet Teddy is such a great lip shade. Good choice x
