The Cosmetics Company Store MAC Mini Haul!

Hey Guys!

It took me a little while to remember that there's a Cosmetics Company Store at Gunwarf Quays in Portsmouth! And seeming I travel from Portsmouth harbour a lot I thought I'd go and have a mooch on the way home from my boyfriend's last week. Oh happy Days... I was like a child in a discount sweet shop! I limited myself to a £50 limit and, I'm proud to say I stuck to it! Very unlike me...
I only got 3 things, but it was only my first visit ;)

MAC Ombre Blush
This blush first came out in February 2010 with the Spring Colour Forecast Collection, and then again in December 2011 with the Daphne Guiness collection which is when I discovered it and loved it ever since! It's a limited addition piece so I was so happy to find it was the only Mac blush the store had!
You're pretty much getting 3 blushes in one, as the shade can be used separately or mixed together. I love that it's larger than a normal blush, so you don't have to fight with your brush to get just one shade! It's the same size as the skinfinishes/bronzers, rather than the powder blushes.
Mac powder blushes come in at £18 and skinfinishes/bronzers £20/£22.
I picked this up for £14.50! Happy Days.
MAC Pro Sculpting Cream
As far as I'm aware this isn't a product you can pick up in normal Mac Stores, but definitely hunt them down online! It's a product I hadn't heard about but I was really intrigued so picked it up anyway! I thought if all else fails, concealer! Sculpting Creams are for applying under foundation, as a more natural way of contouring your face. They only had 2 very light shades so I couldn't get one for contouring but this will be perfect for highlighting.
These retail for £17.50, but from The Cosmetics Company Store I picked mine up for a more reasonable price of £12.25. I can't wait to use this little cream to powder product! I really hope I like it!
MAC Glaze Lipstick
As soon as I saw this, I knew I had to get it! For a start, It's Green! Secondly, It's Sparkly!!! Yup. It's mine. Being a glaze, you don't get a lot of colour from the product, so don't worry if the colour was putting you off, it doesn't come out! All you get is a gorgeous, bright purple, teal, and white shimmer! The glitter in it is amazing! It's so pretty!
The micro glitter is stunning, it give a duo chrome shimmer effect because of all the colours! This lovely lippie came out in Summer 2011 with the Flower Fashion Collection and is also Limited Addition. Standard Mac Lipsticks are £14.50, I got this one for £9.50
I haven't used any of these products yet, as I was waiting to take the pictures first, but I can't wait to try them out and see what they're like! I'll do my best to put them in an upcoming look, so you can see my impressions of my new pretties!
