Collective haul - Liz Earle, MAC, MUA, L'Oreal, Clinique and Revlon

So I have been doing a little bit of shopping, yes even in these cold winter months and I wanted to show you what goodies I picked up. 

The first is from MAC. I haven't really bought too much from MAC, why i will never know!? so needed to rectify this because I felt such a shame to the beauty world. So I decided to pick up a couple of items. As a rule, i tend to pick my two play safe items when trying out a company for real and the two products are always a lip product and a foundation. 

Mac Creamsheen Glass in Romantic Overture £17.50.

This is a glittery nude shade and i absolutely love it. It has such a great finish and isn't too sticky. The packaging is also just to die for, with the beautiful glittery touch, it really makes sense why MAC is one of the top brands and they really put their all into their products.

MAC Studio Fix Foundation NW13 £21.50

I was colour matched by the lady at the counter with this foundation and so far i really like it, i think it might be just a tad too dark but using little and blending, with powder it doesn't look strange on my skin. I really like the texture and the finish of this foundation is utterly flawless. I barely noticed any redness or anything on my skin. Truly impressed. 

I next picked up a product from the Liz Earle and i bought this online from a blogger who was selling some Clinique samples. 

Liz Earle Gentle Face Exfoliator £15.75 

I love exfoliators, since running out of my soap and glory one i was wanting to try something new. After having two samples of the cleanse and polish recently from a beauty box and advent calendar, and was impressed by the product i really wanted to try something else from the brand. The smell of this is beautiful, with it's main ingredients being Eucalyptus, it really makes you feel like you are not just at a spa, but you know you are using a product with natural ingredients. It really cleans my skin and exfoliates it so gently. I will definitely be looking to even more Liz Earle products.

Clinique Moisture Surge - Item from a Gift Set.

I am after a brand new moisturiser and before i wanted to take the plunge, i saw that someone was selling some items from a Clinique giftset, so i decided to take the change and buy this one. I have heard a lot about the moisture surge and so far, i really do like it. My skin feels so much smoother, hydrated and my skin is showing less redness and blemishes. I am glad i have tried it, as much as a i love my Dr Organic moisturiser, sometimes the rose scent is not something i fancy smelling every day. The fact this is scentless, for me, suits what i am after more, I think as soon as my full size Dr organic's are gone, i will be visiting the Clinique counter. 

And last of all three concealers, two for under the eyes and one for those pesky blemishes and spots that creep up on you.

MUA Undress Your Skin Undereye Concealer - £3.00 

I didn't have too high expectations and well this concealer was ok, it concealed but it doesn't last all too long for me, it doesn't brighten much either, not as much as the L'oreal one pictured. For the price it does it's job but there are better on the market. 

L'Oreal Touche Magique Concealer - £8.19 

The dupe for the YSL Touche' Eclat, this is a very good under eye concealer, i really like the formula and it really does give my eyes enough brightness as well as covering up the dark circles. You can tell that L'Oreal owns YSL because it really does do a very similar job. 

Revlon Colour Stay Concealer - £6.99 
I wanted to try this because a lot of people say the concealer and foundation are not much alike. I really did not like the Foundation, everyone raves about it, but for me with dry skin, it was a dry skin clinger. This one, it isn't so bad but it does seem to cling a little like the foundation. Not as much, i do prefer the collection concealer still to this as i have never had these issues. Good coverage though for sure. 

And that was my haul, i hope you liked it. If you did leave a comment and tell me if you have tried any of these products and what you liked about them.
