Haul: MAC, Nars, Bobbi Brown

Hello everyone, hope you are all having a good weekend. I'm having a lazy Sunday and thought I should spare some time to do a little blog post :)

I went shopping in Cardiff on Friday and picked up a little more make-up than I had originally planned.. oohh dear. But here is my haul anyway...

4 pan palette
Retrospeck e/s (top left)
Satin Taupe e/s (top right)
Ricepaper e/s (bottom left)

This is all I had originally planned to get. I needed a 4 pan palette for general travel needs, and I had written down 3 eyeshadows from my wishlist.

As I was at MAC I got distracted and decided to pick up my first paint pot, in the shade 'Painterly'. It's a pretty, flesh toned neutral - ideal for eyeshadow bases or just on it's own for a more natural look.

I then scooted to John Lewis, and whilst I wandered around waiting for the Bobbi Brown MUA to match me up, I got sidetracked at the Nars counter. I ended up picking up their Laguna bronzer, which I have been tempted to buy for a while.

Then finally, at Bobbi Brown I made two purchases.

Bobbi Brown Natural Finish Long Lasting Foundation SPF15 in 'Sand'.
I originally didn't plan to get this, but the MUA applied it to me underneath the concealer I wanted to buy and I fell in love with it instantly. It has the same coverage as MAC's Studio Fix Fluid, but it feels so much lighter on the skin. Expect a full review on this in the future!

And lastly, what I had intended to get at Bobbi Brown - their Creamy Concealer. I was matched as 'Cool Sand'. I love this concealer already - I specifically bought it because I was sick of MAC Studio Fix Concealer making my skin look dry. This does the opposite!

So there is my little (or not-so-little) haul!
