A High End Haul

Last Wednesday I went on a 'make up only' shopping trip with my friend Amy. It must of been fate because my student loan came through in the morning, just in time for our spending spree! I felt we were quite controlled and only bought a few bits instead of going crazy. Here is what I bought...

We went to Harvey Nichols and from Nars I got the Pro-Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base (£19.50 here) as it is raved about among the beauty community. I've only used it a few times but so far I like it, it provides a long lasting base for my shadows. I also got bought the Radiant Creamy Concealer in Custard (£22 here) which is a bit dark for me but I have been using it everyday because I love this concealer! It is everything everyone says it is. I kept my Nars purchases very safe but next time I plan on getting some blushers and eyeshadow, they were so pretty!

At MAC we both indulged in our first MAC lipsticks! I went for Lustering (£15.50 here), a lovely rose shade with a hint of raspberry which is perfect for everyday. I'm very happy with my choice but wasn't impressed with the range of MAC products available at our counter. Leeds Harvey Nicks, sort it out!

Not everyone would class Kiko as high end because it's prices are pretty average for the high street, but because it has it's own shop I'm including it. We ended straight for the Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadow (£6.90 here) and I picked up the shade 06 which is a lovely bronzey rose gold, depending on the light. This looks great under every eye shadow I've tried with so far but I also love it all by itself! Then from the Daring Game collection I got the Ace Of Diamonds Lipstick in 21 (£7.90 here) and the matching Lipliner (£5.90 here). I love this colour because it is also another everyday pink tone for me, nude just doesn't suit me. The texture of the lipstick and lipliner is so smooth and they are quite long wearing.

All the products swatched, left to right: Nars Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base (although this is a little hard to see, Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in Custard, Kiko Ace Of Diamonds Lipstick in 21, Kiko Ace of Diamonds Lipliner in 21, Kiko Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadow in 06 and lastly MAC Lipstick in Lustering.

What was your first MAC lipstick? What do you have your eye on in the high end brands?
