Mac Haul Sneak Peek

If you’re a regular reader of my blog you’ll know that my life isn’t like other people’s. The Chronic Daily Migraine and Fibromyalgia keep me housebound a lot of the time. So you’ll appreciate just how excited I was to FINALLY get some functional hours where I was able to get to the Mac store in Canary Wharf to make use of the gift cards that have been burning a hole in my pocket since Christmas. It was a happy day! (I felt very rough on way back but it was totally worth it 😊).

Two things to mention up front. Firstly, since chronic illness has crippled both me & my finances, there’s no way I’d normally be able to justify buying this much stuff in one go; only my Christmas gift cards make it possible right now. Secondly, Mac has a shocking reputation in terms of in-store customer services. I have no idea if it’s deserved or not but if you’re shopping in East London I recommend the Canary Wharf branch; Monica who looked after me was friendly and really helpful.
Today I’ll show you what products I went for. In upcoming posts I’ll review each one individually with swatches and updates on how I’m getting on with the products. I’m soooo excited to play with all this stuff 👏🏼. Up to this point the majority of my MAC purchases have been Matte Lipsticks.


  • Pro Longwear Foundation in NW15
  • Pro Longwear Concealer in NW15
  • Fix Spray (30ml Sized to Go)



  • Eyeshadow x 4 palette
  • Eyeshadows in pan – Blanc Type, Corduroy, Woodwink & Cork.
  • False Lash Effect Mascara (Sized to Go)
  • Paint Pot in Painterly


  • Lipstick – Brave Red (Cremesheen)
  • Lipstick – Brave (Satin)
  • Lipliner – Cherry
  • Lipliner – Dervish
  • Lipliner – Soar

BTW the Fix spray and mascara are mini sizes but still generous; they cost £10 each & are available online too. A handy way to trial products or grab a handbag size treat.

I’ll be back very soon with individual reviews!

Do you have a favourite Mac product?

Wishing you good luck & happy days,

Kindra x
