Recent Purchases... Chanel, Nars, Mac

Hello everyone! Sorry for being totally rubbish with blogging these last few weeks. I'm not even sure what my excuse is - how about a ridiculous amount of uni work? Yes, I think that might suffice!

Last week I managed to fit in a nice day of shopping in Cardiff with my mummy dearest. I decided to treat myself for Easter.. and treat myself I bloody did!

I am in love with everything I bought so I wanted to share it with you. I only tend to write haul posts if I like everything I've bought - just a little fyi.

I bought: (L-R) Nars cream blusher in Penny Lane, Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua, MAC Vegas Volt lipstick and a MAC lipliner from one of the new collections - god knows which one though!

Close up of Penny Lane - sorry it's already been swatched before I took this photo! I couldn't resist. It is just so pretty :) this is going to become a summer staple for me, in fact it already has now that I come to think of it. LOVE. If you are new to cream blushers then I totally recommend this - the application is full proof!

Close up of Vegas Volt - totally not something I'd usually go for as it is a sort of orange toned pink. Very bright but I love it. I bought this thinking that it would be something I could take on holiday - I love wearing a naked eye and bright lips with a tan on holiday!

Finally, some swatches of everything above. Top to bottom: Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua in shade B20, Penny Lane, Vegas Volt, Naked.

Whilst the two MAC products haven't been used excessively since I got them, I have to say I am totally loving the Chanel foundation and Nars cream blush - I think I have worn them both nearly every day since getting them.

A full review of the Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua to come soon. I won't review Penny Lane as I know it has been reviewed a thousand times - I won't bore you all!



  1. Looking forward to the Chanel Vitalumiere review, very tempted to try it!xx

  2. Can't wait to read your thoughts on the Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua foundation. I am so unadventurous with foundations at the moment even though they are probably my favourite make-up product! I am so worried I'll hate them and then it'll be a waste of money so I tend to stick with the tried and true. x

  3. I can't wait for your Chanel review. I've been planning on getting it because of all the positive attention so it'll be good to read another review before I make the splurge :) xx

  4. Ooh I've been eyeing off Penny Lane for a while now- it looks so pretty swatched.
    Hope you enjoyed the royal wedding!! :) x

  5. awesome haul!

    I have penny lane but I'm not loving it. It's just aight.. The formula of nars cream blushes have disappointed me.. I don't find them long last ting at all..

  6. great blog, please follow mine

  7. Ooo I absolutely love shopping in Cardiff :D
