Mini Mac And Body Shop Haul

Yep, we did it again, another haul! We popped into town a few days ago and we simply couldn't resist picking up a few beauty bits which were simply calling out to us (not literally of course!) We didn't go completely crazy and hence why it is a 'mini' haul, so I think we deserve a good pat on the back for holding back the temptation of almost breaking the bank. First we headed to Selfridges which is one of my favourite places to shop for beauty products, and we picked up a lipstick which we're really loving at the moment. You can check out one of our other posts here on a Selfridges beauty event we attended a while back. After a long stop at selfridges, spending hours admiring all the beauty goods, we headed to the body shop and did some 'hauling' over there too! Here are few bits we picked up.

Mac retro matte lipstick- Ruby woo
This particular Mac lipstick is pretty well known I'm sure. The famous ruby woo shade is the perfect red and compliments any skin tone really well. It isn't orangey at all (as we aren't huge fan of orange toned lipsticks) but a nice deep matt red colour which is a classic beauty essential to own. I spotted this particular colour on my cousin a few weeks go and once she told me it was ruby woo, I just knew I had to have it!

Body shop all-in-one BB cream - 02
We are always on the hunt for a good BB cream which is moisturising, evens out the skin tone and doesn't break you out...I know, we're asking for almost perfection here but theres got to be one out there perfect for our skin right? One of favourites has to be the Garnier BB cream which I find pretty moisturising, however we've recently heard a lot about this body shop all in one BB cream and thought we would give it a try. The women in the shop was so nice and kindly got it matched to our skin tone which was brilliant. I can't wait to give this a trial run.

Body shop all-in-one cheek colour - Guava
Luckily for us there was a 3 for 2 offer in body shop, happy days! So that means more beauty shopping for us. As we were roaming around looking at the wonderful goodies that body shop had to offer, I randomly tested a little of this blush onto my skin and really loved the colour of it so I thought why not!

Body shop honey bronzer - 04
Now the best till last, the body shop honey bronzer. We have been itching to get our hands on this for ages ever since we've heard essiebutton raving about this! First of all lets just take a moment and appreciate the beautiful packaging and the honey comb pattern inside, I just love it! I believe there are four shades to choose from, so you can pick up one suiting your preference. Hopefully we will have a review of this product soon on the blog so keep your eyes peeled!

So thats it for our haul, we hope you guys enjoyed reading it and we would love to know what you guys liked from this haul. Let us know in the comments! xx
