Birthday MAC Makeup Haul

I was rather excited over the weekend as it was my birthday on Monday 14th, and I was lucky enough to be treated to a trip to the MAC store in Liverpool from my boyfriend for part of my present! It is safe to say I have been well and truly spoilt!
First of all, for anyone who has never been to a MAC store (is there anyone?!) - be prepared to spend a long time there, and make sure you talk to one of the makeup artists, as they will explain the differences between all the products, and also make sure that you get the right colours for your skin!

On this trip I got: Mineralize Foundation, Sheer Select Powder, Matte Bronzer and a Retro Lipstick. I was in heaven.

I have used this foundation for several years, and recently made the mistake of trying out something new... this was a massive error and as a result I have had to spend a lot of time doing home facials! The shade I got for this was NC20, as I am currently quite pale.

The Sheer Select Powder that I got is colour NC30, as over the summer I tend to tan quite quickly, and the makeup artist explained that although I am pale at the moment, and can just use a very light dusting to warm up my face, as I get more tanned, I can use a bit more, and it will ensure that my face matches the rest of my body all summer! Fab!

I have also been after a new bronzer recently, as ever since I saw Kim Kardashian's contouring I have been trying (in vain) to replicate her flawless makeup!

Finally I wanted a bright new lipstick for the summer! I have a habit of choosing very similar shades of lipstick, so this time I decided to be big and brave and I absolutely love it! Retro lips all the way, but a little tip - to prevent it bleeding, put some primer on your lips before you put the lipstick on, and for an even better finish, apply it with a lipstick brush! The shade that I have got is called Ruby Woo.
