what i've bought recently - mac products

So, pay day rolled around and after a week back at university, with exam and assignment dates thrown at me from all angles, I thought it was pretty necessary to take myself off to Mac and have a little treat... 

Matte bronzing powder - After using my friend's a few weeks back, this had been firmly put at the top of my 'need to buy for my health and wellbeing' list(after chocolate, obviously). The high street drug store's have a distinct lack of matte bronzers, I'm sure you will agree and due to the fact I don't actually want brown and gold glitter all over my cheeks, it has been a difficult task to try and find a suitable product. The Boirjois chocolate bronzer is certainly up there with one of the best budget cheek products I've ever tried, and if you don't want to fork out a small fortune for a high end bronzer, this is a safe bet for sure. The Mac bronzing powder in my eyes however, is completely worth it - without a hint of even the slightest shimmer, this matte bronzer is perfect for both contouring or applying as a blusher and is one of the longest lasting powders I've ever known! - £20

Blankety lipstick - Blankety is a soft beige pink shade, and with an amplified finish, is very opaque. It has a very creamy consistency and is not in the slightest bit drying - I know already, that this is going to be my go-to day time lipstick - the perfect nude. - £15.50

Mehr lipstick - Mehr is one of the best matte lipsticks I've tried - this cool toned pink is the perfect Autumn shade and is very versatile, with the ability to both wear it in the day and at night. As it's a matte formula, the lasting power is good, not great, with it requiring a re-application after around 3 hours. The shade is very 'Kylie Jenner' although unfortunately, it doesn't make you instantly look like her - I want my money back...! - £15.50

 What Mac products are currently on your wish list at the moment?
