It's been so long since I've done a blog post! Just not been into blogging these days, plus NOTD's started to bore me ^^"
However, I have an exciting MAC haul for you guys. Also including a YSL lip product!

Without further ado, let's get started ~

Purchased 6 cosmetic items in total while in Edinburgh, Glasgow + Livingston.

First up, MAC!

MAC Prep+Prime Transparent Finishing Powder/Pressed
RRP - £17.50

A silky, colourless finishing powder suitable for all skin tones. Reduces shine while optically minimizing the look of lines and imperfections. 

I used this product today + overall, I'm impressed with it. It does its job, gives you a flawless + natural looking face. Will definitely repurchase this when I run out ^^

Strobe Liquid (50ml)
RRP - £21.50

Blending soft focus diffusers with iridescent pigments, this ultra-fluid strobe formula produces soft radiant light on the skin, reducing the appearance of skin imperfections by providing a natural looking glow. Spreads on smoothly and absorbs quickly leaving the skin looking healthier and more radiant. 

I am in love with this product! A product which I have been looking for ages. Something to give my face a dewy look without looking sweaty or shiny. I tend to mix my BB cream with this strobe liquid, then apply it onto my face. Definitely gives you a nice healthy looking glow, even after applying a finishing powder ^^
Another thing I like about this product is that there's a lock on the pump which is another nice little addition to this product ~

Pro Longwear Lipcreme (So Very Good)
RRP - £15.50

Lightweight texture, creamy finish and comfortable longwear combine in this has-it-all pro-class lip colour. Slick in use, applies without need of a top coat - and still lasts up to 12 hours. Won't feather of transfer, and the colour stays true. Helps lips stay soft and hydrated. 

So Very Good is a mid-tone plum shade with hints of pearl in it to give a bit of shimmer. I don't usually go for shades this dark but I don't mind this shade at all! I'm not sure if it lasts 12 hours but it does last quite long. 

Cremesheen Glass (Deelight)
RRP - £16.00

A lip finish that fuses the creamy, sheen-filled nature of Cremesheen Lipstick with the shine of M.A.C Lipglass. Soft, comfortable, non-sticky. 

Deelight is a mid-tone neutral shade which is great for everyday where. It does feel comfortable after applying it as described in its description. Very happy with this product! ^^

Sheen Supreme Lipstick (Bare Again)
RRP - £13.50

Combining the colour impact of a Lipstick with the shine sheen of a Lipglass, Sheen Supreme creates the perfect hybrid - with no compromise. Lightweight, non-sticky, slick to apply and comfortable to wear. 

Bare Again is a pinky neutral beige. It's a really nice neutral for everyday wear. I applied this with Deelight on top and I must say, they both go very well.

Finally, YSL!

Gloss Volupte (No.5 - Sugared Almond)
RRP - £20.50
Purchased at £10.50!

You guys are probably all wondering how I manged to purchase this YSL lip product for only £10.50. Well, theres a store in Livingston called the Luxury Beauty Store which is an outlet filled with luxury brands such as Biotherm, YSL, Dior etc for discounted prices!

I picked up the Gloss Volupte in Sugared Almond which is a nice beigey nude. When applied, it's very sheer but it gives your lips a nice shimmery look. I tried my best to take a photo of the swatch seeing as it was very sheer!

That's all from my cosmetics haul! If you guys want me to do a full review on any of these products, I'll gladly do one. Just post a comment below!
