Hauling: Duty free and MAC

So I was recently away for a few days and when in duty free I decided to splurge! :D

Before then I went to MAC and decided to look at the Surf, Baby! collection. I got talking to the MA next to me and for once she was really nice and pleasant! There was only two of the blushes left and I couldn't resist!

It's a beautiful peachy coral and I think it works really well for my skin tone and my eye and hair colour. The gold over lay is quite chunky gold shimmer but it's still gorgeous with the colour and it's a real pity it wont last. I really like it, it's along the lines of my favourite blush which is Melba.

I swatched this palette ages ago in Blackrock and when I saw it in duty free I really wanted to try it out.

It's got 12 eyeshadows and 4 cream eyeshadows. They are nicely pigmented and really wearable. And I have some nice colours to play with.

This next item was a complete whim, I wanted something new and pretty so I decided to splurge for a lipgloss from YSL

It's No.19 Golden Petal, it's a gorgeous colour! Really love it!

My the Balm bronzer broke when in transit so I needed a new one, I had heard Guerlain bronzers were really good so i saw this and decided to try it and I love it! They are gorgeous!

An in depth review is coming for all of these products! So watch out :)

Wow! It's been a long time!

So I haven't made a post in a very long time I apologize! But I am back! I think I will start with a face of the day and then go on about reviews and hauls and things like that SO lets get started! This is my face today :)

I thought I would play with some of the things I got in duty free on my holiday, I really like them all and a post will be coming soon about them. Finally! :P

I did my eyes a gold smokey eye, I think it's gorgeous personally!
I used the Smashbox Beauty in a Box Eye Palette.
I used No. 7 on the lid
No. 8 in the crease
Used my gel eyeliner on the waterline and smudged under the lashline.
My YSL mascara to give me gorgeous lashes!

I have a video which explains this a bit better when it's upload it I will put it in here.

On my lips I put a small bit of foundation to cancel out my dark lips colour and I applied YSL's Golden Gloss in No. 19 - Golden Petal. It is so beautiful!!

So on my face I used Revlon colourstay for my foundation.
My Guerlain Bronxing Duos in 00 and 02.
I used MAC's My Paradise cheek colour.
