Wednesday Beauty Buys


I always do find myself returning to certain favourite brands that you just can't go wrong with and Mac is one of them. We are off on holiday soon so I treated myself to a few goodies from their range....

Mac Make up
It is more expensive than your over the counter products, but I find lasts and the quality is just fabulous. If I want a foundation that gives a bit more coverage than a tinted moisturiser, I go for this one.This is still a lightweight foundation but it gives a lovely, flawless finish to your skin and it remains in place all day! There are plenty of shades to choose from to suit your skin tone. It is the Pro Longwear Range.

Pro Longwear PPF10 Foundation

This is one of their powder blushes. I got it in Fleur power which is a pink coral colour - more pink than coral. Pretty for the summer. You only need a little, so again it lasts and lasts.
Powder Blush

This lip colour is one of their pro longwear range again . I have not used this product before, but wanted something that would give my lips colour through the day and last a little longer than 10 minutes. We went into town on Saturday and even after lunch at Wagamamas , I still had a blast of colour on! Amazing! However, I wouldn't trust myself to reapply the colour part of this without a mirror, as one false move and you would have colour where you didn't want it for a very long time! You do apply the stain and then a gloss on top which I did reapply during the day, but at the moment I am  loving this lip product. I went for the Perenial Rose colourway.

Pro Longwear Lip Colour

I also topped up on my favourite moisturiser of all time from Dermalogica . I get this from Look Fantastic ( link in the side bar). I love the Dermalogica range and if you read the reviews on this site I think you'd be hard pushed to find a bad one. It is such a lovely moisturiser - a great all rounder!

Skin Smoothing Cream

I am still hunting down a perfect brown, black mascara - any suggestions? I've tried so many over the years and not found one I've stuck with .............


  1. I can vouch for the Mac blusher. It's worth every penny and lasts and lasts. I always go for Max Factor Mascara's if any. I find they don't irritate my eyes and give non-flakey and un-spidery lashes. X

    1. I agree - I have sensitive eyes as well , but on that recommendation I'll try a Mac mascara on my next order I think - I do love their products! xx
