MAC Haul (including VG Nicki!)

Now I have so much makeup, I don’t make such large indie hauls any more – I tend to just pick up what really speaks to me, and it’s much cheaper that way, obviously! Now I’ve got so much shiz, I’m not in the ‘OMG I could have bought 6 indie lippies for that price!’ frame of mind, so I don’t mind forking out for MAC or high end stuff now and then (it’s still pretty expensive for me!)

MAC haul

Mac Hang Up 2

MAC Hang Up

Hang Up (Cremesheen)

Oooh, innit nice? I was eyeing up Cyber but I figured I’d never actually wear it, but I still fancied something dark and sexy, so this came home with me. I need to find a good liner for it, as I found it did bleed a wee bit towards the end of the afternoon. Boo.


MAC Rebel

MAC Rebel 2

Rebel (Satin)

I know there are probably a billion and one dupes for Rebel, and knowing me I probably have one, but I’ve been lusting after this lipstick for a long time, and I had a Back2Mac so I just got it. Love it!


Viva Glam Nicki
Viva GLam Nicki 2

MAC Viva Glam Nicki (Satin)

RIGHT?! Hooo, boy, this is a hot one. No idea what I’m going to wear it with – I’ll probably take a clue from the lady herself and wear it with TONS of lashes.


Viva Glam V 2

Viva Glam V

Viva Glam V (Lustre.)

I bought this after Wendy recommended it to RaeRae, and she recommend it to me. It’s a lovely, slightly mauvey netural with gold shimmers. I’ve seen this slagged a LOT online – too boring, too shimmery, blah blah blah. I love it. This, brown smokey eye, done.

Viva Glam Ricky

Viva Glam Ricky Lip Conditioner

I wasn’t going to get this, but I was powerless against the lovely man in MAC with the Vivienne Westwood necklace on, and it’s for Viva Glam, soooo…. doesn’t count? It’s a nice conditioner – it’s petroleum based, with shea butter and various oils. It does the job well, so I’m probably going to get another one for my kit.


Mac Blush Palette

Dollymix Coygirl Pinch O Peach

Dollymix, Coygirl, Pinch O’ Peach.

Springsheen Style Peaches

Springsheen, Style, Peaches.

My very first MAC blush palette! I didn’t get all these at once, obviously,  and I had to order the palette itself online - which Yodel left on my doorstep. In a huge box. Clearly marked as MAC. THANKS YODEL. Anyway, I love MAC blushes – they’re sheer but buildable, and last pretty much all day. I just wish they weren’t £18 each – most of these I got from Fragrance Direct (Dollymix was a present from Rachael <3 ) I’m quite proud that I depotted them and only put a dink in one!


  1. What a great haul! Viva Glam Nicki is much lovelier on you than it was on me; I tried it on and it was so BRIGHT. And not in a fresh, eye-catching way :( I seriously want Hang Up and Viva Glam V now... If I go to the MAC counter in the very very very near future and come home with something new, I am blaming you!

  2. Ooooh those lippies are so nice! Esp Satin. I want that. I really want that. :-) x

  3. VG Nicki doesn't look as good on me as it does on you. My lips are too dark for such amazing hot pinks. Tis v. annoying. I need to try it with a liner next time. Also blush palette = awesome. Well done on depotting... I've never tried to depot but I think I may depot some MAC eyeshadows soon... x(stupid long comment, sorry)

  4. Looks like a great MAC haul! Love the lippies. I've been pondering VG Nicki, just not sure if it is going to look good on me :( I'm jealous of your blush palette!

  5. Oh god....I didn't even vaguely want VG Nicki until I saw this :'( It looks beautiful on you!

  6. I love the way VG Nicki looks on you! I love seeing Mac hauls, thanks for showing this! :)

  7. well don't feel bad, sometimes you just got to be more luxury right!
    but even though the mac nerve never seems to disappear, i get a lot surprised from indie brands and their amazing pay off, and colours. so 50/50 on this one for me.
    though..... rebel would be nice in my stash as well hehe!/Azure

  8. Rebel was MADE for you...amazing! (I'm with you on the indie lip thing. Though, I'm doing it with MAC pigments. lol)

  9. Viva Glam V is PERFECT on you! I really love Hang Up and the blushes as well.

  10. Nice haul! I love Coygirl and Rebel!
