Mac/Benefit Purchases

This is going to be a tad boring to look at..but you could always watch the video which i cant really promise is going to be too exciting either.

Well.....went with my best friend to the Diner on carnaby street(BEST fries ever) and their cajun burgers are to die for. Not sure about veggie options although the fish burger did go down with my bff quite well.

So after that we decided to pop into benefit, because lord knows the girls standing outside the boutique look so adorable and so desperate for customers. I hate that, but in a way i know exactly how that feels having worked for a skin care company myself not sooo long ago. Its tough but sales means money and basic pay is pretty lame in the sales industry esp in beauty. Anyway walked in knew i wanted the bad gal mascara after buying 3 magazines just to get the samples..which i adore BUT NOT on their own, for some reasons bad gal just doesnt do anything exciting for my lashes unless i use it in combo with a lengthening mascara such as my fav(lash stilletto) and may i say my lashes have never been longer with this combo. i love it! more then dior blackout! Also picked up coralista...recommended by a fellow youtube guru.

Anyway the next day i was in westfields(my second home) and was desperate for the duey, sexy im so oily but tanned face look. u know what i mean. Think britney in slave for you video. ;) yeah i thought you would remember that. Well after no luck and some rudeness experienced at the bobbi brown counter, i decided to give mac a go. Now i am not a mac addict, i like their products, but i wouldnt go as far as to say that i am obsessed with every collection or product they bring out. But i guess thats true for a lot of make up brands.

Anyhooo i told the guy working there just what i was going for i told him i had chanel vitul(cant spell the rest) foundation and the mac mineralised foundation the first one was not recieved too warmly but whatever. He suggested going for the strobe creme and applied it to my hand and yes i fell in love. so thats the end of that story. i also picked up love nectar lipglass and pink lemonade(adore) which will go perfect with the coral lipstick from barry m which was my staple for summer!
