Mini Haul & Staple Product

This post is a little bit of a departure from my standard beauty faves and reviews.  As you guessed from the title, this beauty junkie made her way to a makeup store today {I’m bad!!  So so bad!!} aIMG_2550nd thought she’d share it with all of you.

Over the past few weeks I’ve been clearing out my makeup stash {more to come on that one — stay tuned!} and had a few tons of products to return for Back to MAC.  I also ran out of my staple – can’t be without it – product, so the trip was justified, right?!

First with the must have – MAC Prep and Prime in Radiant Rose.  This stuff is killer in the best way possible.  I’ve gone without it for a little while, as I was trying to use up my YSL Touch Eclat, which I hate, btw.  There was a noticeable difference when I didn’t use this little MAC product – the dark circles were oh so clear under my normal concealer.  When I’m using the Prep and Prime, this certainly isn’t the case.  As soon as I had time this week, I ran out to fetch it and I’ll never be without it again.  The price point isn’t terrible at $31 and a little bit goes a long way.  I’ve tried this, the YSL Touch Eclat and other drugstore brightening products; none hold a candle to this bad boy.  It’s  a must have if you don’t already have it.  I believe it comes in differing undertones for every skin colour and I think you’d love it just as much as I do. IMG_2552

I decided to recycle 6 empties for a lipstick.  I did a little recon and this lippie is said to be a dupe for my beloved Charlotte Tillbury Bitch Perfect.  Now that I’ve opened it, I’m not real sure whose opinion that is and if he or she may need vision correction of some sort.

Here’s a photo of them swatched – not close.  I’m going to give it a try.  I think that this colour could be complimentary on my skin tone, however I may have to work with it a little more than Bitch Perfect.  I’ll keep you posted on that one!
