Make Up Haul: MAC and E.L.F

A few weeks ago MAC finally opened a store in Aberdeen. Its been long awaited and to be honest I'm surprised its taken so long! The weekend it opened I was down in Glasgow for my Bodypainting course, so I couldn't resist going in and buying a few things on my day off last weekend!

The main item I went in for was a new concealer. I've been using the Studio Finish since I was 14, which I was recommended by a MAC makes up artist. It dawned on me that I really don't need such a high coverage concealer as I only really wear it under my eyes. I swatched a few and liked the consistently of the mineralize concealer the most.

I love MAC lipsticks and my manager mentioned she'd like to try Russian Red, so I bought her it as a birthday present! Of course, I couldn't buy someone else a lipstick without buying for myself! I chose Lickable, a beautiful bright raspberry colour.

I've never had an high end make up brush before and I've heard many good reviews on the 217 blending brush, so I couldn't resist picking one up!

As I'm sure many of you are aware, E.L.F had a 50% off sale. I stocked up on eyelid primer and neutral eye shadow, as well as nail polishes. One of the nail polishes I chose was a matte top coat, which I figured would be a fun addition to my collection!

I also bought the Mineral Booster, as I saw in the reviews a few people preferred it to the HD Powder, which I normally use! I love the HD Powder as it doesn't leave a residue on my face like a lot of powders seem to.

I saw the Eyeshadow Transformer palette and couldn't resist, it claims to change the hue of your eye shadows using green, yellow, pink or  purple powder that is applied on top of your own colour. I'm not convinced if it will work, but it got reviews so I decided to give it a go.

Have you bought any make up recently? Or did you take advantage of the E.L.F sale? If so, what did you buy?
