MAC, smashbox, topshop haul!

As a present for doing well in my exams, my mum took me to the staff shop at the airport, where there is a whole wall of discounted cosmetics: mac, ysl, clinique.. everything! Yes, i was literally in heaven!

So, here's what i bought:

-Mac royal assets Keepsake which contained:
-Mac lipglass in "glamoursun"
-Mac blush in "Sunbasque"
-Mac pigment sample in "Shimmertime"
- and Mac softsparkle pencil in "Nightsky"
This was the real bargain, it cost me £12.50 for the whole set !

-Mac solar bits in "Scatterrays" - £9
-Mac e/s in "Evening aura" - £8.50
-Smashbox cream eyeliner in "Image" - £4

From L-R:
Glamoursun, Shimmertime, Sunbasque, Evening aura, Scatterrays.
(the picture doesnt do justice to what a gorgeous colour scatterrays is!)

I also stopped off at selfridges earlier in the week and bought myself a mac paint pot in "painterly"

and this top from topshop

did any of you get any bargains recently?

also does any one know of the best way to apply the solar bits, as iv found they can be very messy, but such a beautiful colour!

Organized at last..

After seeing bubblegarms recent post showing how she arranged all her jewelery etc. , it looked so pretty and nice, and after looking at the mess of stuff in my own room, i decided it was time for me to get organized! First place i knew i needed to clear was my overflowing makeup draws, i just realised what a state it was in.. seriously i had makeup in there, never used, that was atleast a couple of years old! it's shameful!

so... after a couple of hours work - the final result..
