Haul - A Girly Weekend Away!(Mini Reviews)

Hi everyone!
Sorry I havn't posted in almost a week!
My internet broke and Sky didn't send us new router until Friday, and on Friday morning I went away for the weekend :)
I went for a girly weekend in Chester and indulged in some shopping!

So here's what I bought...
Sorry the picture's not great! :D

So let's start off with the most exciting bit! The MAC make up! My first MAC purchases :)

MAC Mineralize Skin Finish in Soft and Gentle
I've wanted this for ages! It's so pretty and I loved wearing it on a night out in Chester.

MAC Cremesheen Lipstick in Speed Dial
This is a nice creamy pink that I think flatters my skin tone pretty well. I love the scent of this lipstick!

MAC Pearlmatte Face Powder in Flower Fantasy
I picked this up from a discount cosmetics shop in Cheshire Oaks, It only cost about £15.  :)

I also picked up something lovely from MAC to include in my upcoming giveaway :)

Frontcover Palette and 4 Single Eyeshadows
This was such a bargain! I got an empty palette with a brush, reduced down to £1.25 and then four single shadows for £1 each. I got the shades 'Black Ink', 'Pale Gold', 'Sunray' and 'Powder Puff'. The shadows are really nice and pretty pigmented, my favourite one is Powder Puff, it's a shimmery champagne colour.

MUA Lipsticks in Shades 3 and 4
These lipsticks are great, especially for a quid! Shade 4 is sheer, bubblegummy pink which is super moisturising. Shade 3 is a deep berry pink and is really pigmented, it's also nice and creamy.

Claire's Cosmetics Nail Varnish
This nail varnish has no name :( But it's gorgeous! It has chunky pink and blue glitter in it with fine specks of purple glitter. I loves it :D

Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Turquoise Forever
This is an amazing bright turquoise colour! I'm thinking of using this as a liner on my lower lash line, with the bronze colour tattoo on my lid.

L'oreal Colour Infaillible Eyeshadow in Time Resist White
I already have two of these colour infaillible shadows and they're really great so I thought I'd pick up this white shadow for highlighting my inner eye corner. This is so soft and pigmented.

L'oreal Caresse in Sweet Berry
I've wanted this for weeks but have never been able to find this colour in stock, its a soft, subtle berry colour which is a really wearable everyday colour for me.

No7 Concealer Brush
I bought this using a No7 voucher and it is so soft! It retails for £8 but I got it for £3, as the name suggests it is fantastic for blending concealer and I'd definitely purchase another, even at full price.

Cargo Double Ended Primer Mascara Lash Activator Extreme
This mascara retails for £23 but Boots had it for 75% off, so I decided to give it a go. I've only used it once, but I feel like the primer did make quite a difference to my lashes.

YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat Foundation Sample
I was colour matched as the shade B50, I've not tried it out yet but I thought it was lovely to get a free 7 day trial of this new foundation. :)

DKNY Be Delicious Fresh Blossom Perfume and Body Lotion
This is a lovely fresh, summery floral scent. Perfect for summer!

Avene Soothing Hydrating Serum
I've been using this for a few days and so far I love it, it's really made my skin feel a lot smoother.

Boots Botanics Night Shift Moisture Cream
This was reduced down to £2.49 in my local Boots, It's really nice and hydrating. I'm really enjoying this so far.

 Sorry for such a long post! I've been missing blogging this week :)
I hope these mini reviews will help some of you out if you're looking into buying any of these things.
If you've got a No7 Voucher hanging around, give the concealer brush a go, for £3 it won't dissapoint. :D

Thanks for reading!
