Happy Haulidays! MAC. Bobbi Brown, Chanel, Yves St Laurent, Rituals

As you may or may not know, I had the pleasure of spending a long weekend in Brussels in the company of a smattering of my very best friends. I'll write more about my experience later on in the week. 

Today I have some holiday goodies to share with you all. I had been exceptionally good over the last few months in abstaining from placing any online orders (except for an essential shampoo order) because I knew I would probably go mad in the airports and on European soil (as per usual!). Well my buddies should have gotten the straight jackets out because I did end up going a wee bit mad.


Unsurprisingly, my first pit stop was the MAC counter at Dublin Airport. Anybody who knows Dublin Airport at all will know that it sits directly opposite the security scanners, and as I was taking off my jewellery and being frisked by security guards, I was bursting with excitement to get over there. The girls at the counter were so friendly and helpful- they let me have my own space to peruse, made useful suggestions, and one of the girls actually gave me a little black briefcase box to put all my make up in, and that box will now take pride of place in my room! I picked up blushes in 'Pinch o'Peach' and 'Fleur Power', two eyeshadows in 'Vanilla' and 'Club', another MAC Paintpot in 'Quite Natural' and four MAC lipsticks in 'See Sheer', 'Craving', 'Rebel' and 'Russian Red'. 

I passed a MAC store in Brussels also and I called in and picked myself up a nice new palette and an eyeshadow well organiser whilst I was there- I have been meaning to pick one up for the longest time and every time I tried they were sold out, I was delirah to finally get my hands on one.

Whilst in Brussels, I picked up an Yves St Laurent Rouge Volupte Shine in Shade 8, Pink in Confidence, and also a Glossy Stain in Rose Tempera. I absolutely fell in love with the shades and once I swatched them, I could not let them pass me by. I also repurchased one of my favourite shower mousses by Rituals and my favourite ever perfume, Chanel Chance Eau Fraiche,

 Lastly in all things beauty, I also picked up some bits from Bobbi Brown in the airport including a Shimmer Brick in Beige, a Skin Foundation in Sand and a slightly darker Long Wear Foundation in Warm Sand.


I am still roadtesting these so I cannot give a fully informed review of them at this stage. Suffice to say, my first impressions of everything has been extremely positive. If there is anything on this list that you would like to see a full depth review of, please let me know. Also, if you are heading off on hols soon and would like to know the prices of any of the above items and where to procure any potential discounts, drop me a line. 

Am I the only one who goes mad in the duty free when heading off on hols?
