Haul: Chanel, MAC, Barry M & Free Benefit Skincare Offer!

Hello there :)
Shopping, every girls weakness right? After cutting down quite abit on my makeup spending, I decided to splash out a little yesterday ^_^ I was only planning to buy clothes really, but seeing the "spend £30 and get £7.50 worth of advantage card points" offer in boots, i had to oblige!

I think i pretty much knew what I wanted from the moment i stepped into the store. I was looking for a foundation, as all mine are too dark, so picked up the Revlon Colourstay which ive heared so many people rave about! Some Barry M polishes were also on the cards as i've only ever really used the crackle ones. I currently have Peach Melba on my toes, and i love it so far!
After deciding upon these 4 items, i was then stumped. What else do i get? Thats when the Chanel counter appeared, attracting me like a moth to a flame. Once i practically skipped over, there it was. The nail polish I have been lusting after for months, ever since I saw the first swatches. The colour that had inspired my yellow obsession. Yes, im talking about Chanel Mimosa! Loved and hated by many, after a slight hesitation over the price tag, I snapped it up. For me, this has just been one of those products I need! While I was there, i also got colour matched for Estee Lauder Double Wear, picking up a sample in Shell.

Theres currently a deal on in Grazia magazine offering free Benefit skincare to its readers! This mag is only £1 with a voucher redeemable at any Benefit counter, so ofcourse i rushed to find one! Being sneaky, I picked up 2, one from Boots and one from Debenhams! I've been wanting to try the range for a while so am so happy with this find! Thanks Katie for letting me know about it! This deal is only for for this week, so grab it while you can!
While I was in town I also stopped by the MAC shop, grabbing a Concealer and Viva Glam Gaga 2 Lipstick <3 I dont really have that many MAC items, but i hope to build more of a collection in the next few months.
I've apparently forgot to picture the topshop cream blush i got as well in these photos!

Revlon Colourstay Foundation in Ivory (£12.49)
Barry M Nail Paint in Mint Green (£2.99)
Barry M Nail Paint in Blue Moon (£2.99)
Barry M Nail Paint in Peach Melba (£2.99)
Chanel Mimosa Nail Polish (£16.85)
MAC Viva Glam Gaga 2 Lipstick (£13.50)
MAC Studio Finish Concealer in NC15 (£13.50)
Topshop Cream Blush in Flush (£6)

I also got a a dress from Debenhams & 2 purses, makeup bag and a dress from Primark!



  1. Thankfully I don't feel crazy enough to buy a Chanel nail polish, no matter how pretty it is!

    I totally understand the building of a MAC collection. I've looked and read online for years and I'm now at the point I just want, want, want! It shall build up and I shall be insanely happy!

    Great haul!

  2. What mac concealer did u get?? I only have a few mac products as well, and am planning on building my collection in a massive way lol :)

  3. @cosmetic chronicles I couldnt help it! Ive been craving it for months and had money to burn! Im really impressed with it an all, i think this is the start of a chanel polish obsession!

    @kendyl I got the studio finish concealer i believe xD Been watching youtube vids of "mac starter kits" to get the basics in my collection!
