Mac Haul Sneak Peek 

If you’re a regular reader of my blog you’ll know that my life isn’t like other people’s. The Chronic Daily Migraine and Fibromyalgia keep me housebound a lot of the time. So you’ll appreciate just how excited I was to FINALLY get some functional hours where I was able to get to the Mac store in Canary Wharf to make use of the gift cards that have been burning a hole in my pocket since Christmas. It was a happy day! (I felt very rough on way back but it was totally worth it 😊).

    

Two things to mention up front. Firstly, since chronic illness has crippled both me & my finances, there’s no way I’d normally be able to justify buying this much stuff in one go; only my Christmas gift cards make it possible right now. Secondly, Mac has a shocking reputation in terms of in-store customer services. I have no idea if it’s deserved or not but if you’re shopping in East London I recommend the Canary Wharf branch; Monica who looked after me was friendly and really helpful. 
Today I’ll show you what products I went for. In upcoming posts I’ll review each one individually with swatches and updates on how I’m getting on with the products. I’m soooo excited to play with all this stuff 👏🏼. Up to this point the majority of my MAC purchases have been Matte Lipsticks.

   
 

  • Pro Longwear Foundation in NW15
  • Pro Longwear Concealer in NW15
  • Fix+ Spray (30ml Sized to Go)

   
    
 

    • Eyeshadow x 4 palette 
    • Eyeshadows in pan – Blanc Type, Corduroy, Woodwink & Cork. 
    • False Lash Effect Mascara (Sized to Go)
    • Paint Pot in Painterly 

       
      

      • Lipstick – Brave Red (Cremesheen)
      • Lipstick – Brave (Satin)
      • Lipliner – Cherry
      • Lipliner – Dervish
      • Lipliner – Soar

      BTW the Fix+ spray and mascara are mini sizes but still generous; they cost £10 each & are available online too. A handy way to trial products or grab a handbag size treat.

      I’ll be back very soon with individual reviews! 

      Do you have a favourite Mac product?

      Wishing you good luck & happy days,

        1. I went in there telling myself not to let it ruin my fun if the ladies in there were rude but the one who helped me was lovely and helpful. Any Mac shopping I’ve done before has been online but I’ll def go back to that store 🙂

        1. I’m glad you enjoyed the post 🙂
          I’m struggling with eye makeup right now as the Botox injections for chronic migraine have done some seriously weird puffy things to my upper eyelids but I’m hopeful about this mascara! Let’s see if I can apply it without getting it all over my puffy eyelids 😄 thanks for commenting x

          1. Oh no ! Sorry to hear that I’m sure the puffiness will go down in no time, yes this doesn’t clump up at all, is very lengthening and feels like your not wearing anything on your lashes. Yes fingers crossed ! And your very welcome 😊 ❤ X

      2. WOWEE! Gift cards are great!
        Looking forward to the reviews. 😀
        My favourite MAC product… hrmm you do pose a challenging question. I would say one that I use nearly daily: MAC Paint Pot in Groundwork. Amazing formula and the colour goes with everything.

      3. Shockingly I don’t actually own anything from Mac, I need to rectify this immediately because all of the products you have look amazing! I also live in Canary Wharf so I feel as though I should go there now you’ve said how nice the ladies are in that particular store!! Time to start planning what to buy – thanks for the post 🙂

        1. Thank you for reading and commenting, I’m glad you enjoyed it! Monica who helped me was lovely, I’ll definitely go back to her next time. The lipsticks in particular are a great place to start – I love both the matte & satin formulas. With one of their lipliners underneath they stay put for ages. Also really liking the concealer for under the eyes so far 🙂
