MAC Haul

I knew that while I was in America that I wanted to stock up on all my MAC products so I thought I might as well wait till I go to America as the exchange rate will be good.
I ended up in the Millennium Mall in Florida where they have a MAC Pro Store which is where Ive got most of my products from before, however I went back to this store a few times while I was on holiday and I could not look at anything nor would I have been given the time of day either which is a shame. So instead I opted for the MAC counter at Macy's which was a lot quieter and I am SOOOOO glad I decided to buy from there as I ended up meeting the loveliest mac makeup artist ever. I spent about 45 minits on counter just chatting to her about moving to America and doing makeup and it was such an insight into how to get your foot in the door over there.
She was also amazing at her job, and so approachable. I pretty much knew exactly what I wanted besides the lipstick.
I was tempted to try out St. Germain as Ive heard and seen such good things, but when I tried it on it defiantly wasn't me. Instead I went for I'm Passioned which I totally have fallen in love with.
I took this photo while I was away of what I brought at the counter.
  • Pro Longwear Foundation NC35
  • Mineralize Satinfinish SPF 15 NC35
  • SheerTone Shimmer Blush in Peachykeen
  • Amplied Lipstick in Im Passioned
  • 182 Kabuki Brush
The whole lot came to about $156 which I thought was pretty good, considering the brush was $50. Mental money for brushes!!!!
The lipstick is so vibrant but doesn't look too much when you put it on, and its a nice pinky coral colour, looks lush with a tan and it last for hours too.
Ive only ever had a MAC cream blusher before which I was too keen on, so I opted for a powder with a hint of shimmer on it which leaves a beautiful shine to the cheekbones and highlights them! 
I needed a new kabuki brush for my bronzer, this one is super soft and does the job, but a bit on the pricey side as it came to $56 I think!!!
