High End Makeup Haul

As you may know from my last post, I went to Dublin for the weekend for one of my auntie's fortieth birthday. Eleven of us went in total and it was so much fun and such a great weekend. We drank, we ate, we shopped and we toured. I might do a separate post on what we did and where we want so stay tuned. One of the main reasons why I buy makeup on holiday is because airports don't charge taxes and the conversion makes everything a lot cheaper, and so I tend to save my money up and buy quite a bit at a time when I go over to Ireland or any other countries. This time I bought things that I have been wanting for such a long time, so I'm excited to show you!


In Dublin I bought three products as I knew already that they weren't in the airport. I started off with Too Faced as I have been eyeing their products for the longest time. Their 'Natural Eyes Palette' has nine shades in golden/bronzy shades (so I was always going to love it really) and are all very wearable. I also bought the 'Better Than Sex Mascara' as my cousin wears this religiously and I've seen nothing but good reviews so thought I'd try it. Just opposite the Too Faced counter was The Balm counter and I spotted the 'Mary-Lou Manizer Highlighter' straight away and didn't even think twice before running directly the queue to pay.

In the airport I started with MAC - one of my favourite brands. I know I only just did a MAC lipstick collection post, but I couldn't resist picking up a new MAC lipstick in the shade 'Diva'. It is described as a reddy/burgundy but I can see slight undertones of brown too which I am excited to try out. I also got one of their beloved Mineralize Skin Finishes in the shade 'Soft & Gentle' which is just a highlighter from dreams. It is quite a gold and obvious highlighter, with a lot of shimmer and sparkle, but one of my favourite makeup products is highlighter so I always go all out and this is just perfect. I then bought a cult makeup product from Benefit which yet again I have wanted for so long - the 'Hoola Bronzer'. I expect you've all seen of or already own this, and I have been missing out, but not anymore! 

Have you bought any makeup recently?
