The Summer Make Up Haul

For a moment I thought it had been a long time since I'd posted a haul of any kind, but alas I was kidding myself, and in fact my last haul was only just over a month ago!  Do I need to go on a spending ban again?  A question for another day perhaps, in the meantime though here's what I've bought recently...

MAC Mineralize Rich Lipstick in Elegant Accent - The latest lipstick formula to be released by MAC these Mineralize Rich lipsticks go on light and glossy, feel very hydrating and have an interesting formula that layers to build up the colour.  I immediately fell in love with this rosey shade; it goes on so much brighter than it looks in the bullet too!
MAC Mineralize Rich Lipstick in Lady at Play - The first of my purchases from the Tropical Taboo collection and a pretty bold choice for me.  This lipstick looks more pink in the bullet but comes out pretty coral on the lips.  I don't think I've ever warn a shade this light and bright, but so far I'm enjoying it and what a perfect shade for summer!
MAC Lip Pencil in Ablaze - Purchase number two from the Tropical Taboo collection.  This lip liner is described as a bright apricot, and it comes out bright indeed.  So far I've worn this on it's own with a little lip balm on top and then underneath the lipstick in Lady at Play, either way it's been great, has perfectly defined and shaped my lips and has been very long lasting.
MAC Cremesheen Glass in Fever Isle - Yep, another one from the Tropical Taboo collection (what can I say, this collection really floated my boat!).  This is my first Cremesheen Glass and the formula is very nice, not too sticky but has good staying power.  The shade I chose is a nice summery coral with a good dose of red and the fact its more on the sheer side mean it's perfect to pair with lipsticks I bought.
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Rio - This is easily my favourite purchase this year and in my opinion the best thing in MAC's latest collection.  The shade, Rio, is made up of a beautiful deep bronze with bright pink pearl (no chunky glitter!) and is fantastic on my skin now I've picked up a hint of colour.  I'm seriously considering going and buying a back up of this, I love it that much.

Urban Decay and Nars Makeup
Urban Decay Naked Palette - So I finally caved and picked up the Naked Palette, I was wandering around Debenhams, and just couldn't resist it.  I haven't actually tried any of the shades yet but with so many bloggers still in love with this palette I figured I couldn't go far wrong.  I'm pleased it came with a mini primer potion too, I have a full size one of these in my collection but it never hurts to have a back up.
Nars Satin Lip Pencil in Luxembourg - I don't know why it took me so long to discover the Nars lip pencils but I'm so glad I've found them now!  These satin formulations go on super smooth and a little glossy, the colours are bright and beautiful and they last well too!  The shade Luxembourg is a bright pinky-red, it works very well with a simple black eye liner for a sophisticated summer evening look.
Nars Satin Lip Pencil in Palais Royal - I have a serious love affair with purple shades for my lips and Palais Royal doesn't disappoint in the slightest.  It's a deep rich plum that I can see myself reaching for on evenings no matter what the season.
Nars Pencil Sharpener - not the most exciting purchase, but I couldn't for the life of me find my old pencil sharpener so I needed a replacement.

So that's it for my haul, I feel like it was quite a big one this time, but I'm certain everything I've bought will get a lot of use this summer and beyond.

Comment and let me know about your favourite summer makeup purchases this year.
