Mini Make-up Haul (Mac, YSL, Bobbi Brown)

So I went shopping recently and picked up a few items I had been lusting over! and thought I would share with you what I got, I went shopping a few days ago now so have had a chance to try out all of these products, so I guess you could say this post is a mini haul/review...

YSL Volume Effect Faux Cils
I love this mascara, I've been wearing it every day since I got it, I would have to say its the best mascara I've tried, it doesn't go clumpy at all which is great as i hate clumpy mascaras. It does a great job of lengthening, volumizing and seperates my lashes, the only thing is the price tag, it is pricey for a mascara at £22 and I've heard that this does dry up quickly, but I'll have to see, that may be a downside though, especially for the price.

YSL Rouge Volupte Perle 102 (Coral Sun)

This is a gorgeous coral peachy shade, the thing is its quite sheer, in the picture above i have layered it around 3 times! I prefer more pigmented lipsticks, however if your someone who just likes a touch of colour, this would be great for you. It is very very creamy and feels lovely on the lips, not to mention the gorgeous fruity smell. One thing I do find is that wear it is so creamy and sheer, I don't feel like it will last long at all. I wish it wasn't so sheer as it is a gorgeous shade, I think this is something i will reach for in the summertime more, it has SPF 15 too which is a bonus! plus isn't the packaging beautiful?!

        Mac Ruby Woo Lipstick                                               Mac Cherry Lipliner

Mac ruby woo lipstick
I've been looking for a perfect red lipstick for a while, well I think I found it. Its a great shade that I think would look good on so many skin tones, its a matte finish, which I thought would be drying. My lips are very dry but I don't find this drys my lips out at all, in fact it makes them look better!

Mac red cherry lipliner
I got this lipliner to go with ruby woo lipstick, which it works great for, would defiantly recommend this to pair with ruby woo. I have a couple of other mac lipliners but for some reason i prefer the texture of this one it glides on better.

Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner

I've wore this nearly every day since i got it too, as you can see i got the shade black ink, which is just a jet black colour. It is creamy in texture, glides on effortlessly and lasts all day. You can also wear this in your waterline which I've been doing too.

So that's everything I got, hope you enjoyed this mini haul, are there any products your lusting over right now? always love to get some recommendations!



  1. I love the lipsticks especially! Both colours are so perfect, very much in awe right now :)
