Blog Sale Buys :: NARS and MAC


I'm a big fan of blog sales. If I see one pop up on my feed, I'll instantly take a look and scan for potential bargains. Even though I'm on a spending ban, when I seen these on the Blog of Shadows blog sale my instincts kicked in and I knew I needed these two in my life. 

I purchased MAC's Overtime Pro Longwear Lipcreme and the NARS Hungry Heart/Orgasm duo. I've been wanting to give the Orgasm blush a go for a while now but after I purchased Deep Throat I just couldn't justify it. However £12 was just to good to resist and I'm really glad I bought it. The shimmer is not as prominent on the skin as I originally thought it would be and I can see this becoming a daily favourite. Hungry Heart feels a tiny bit chalkier than Orgasm, but is still quite buttery in texture and is a gorgeous highlighter that I'll be using on a daily basis to give my skin a bit more oomph. 

My second purchase was MAC's Overtime. This is a permanent shade in their Pro Longwear Lipcreme collection and as it retails for £16.50 I think £8 is a total steal. It's a gorgeous baby pink that was used on Jennifer Lawrence during the coronation scene in The Hunger Games. It is the softest, smoothest lipstick I have ever used. It practically melts onto your lips and still provides intense pigmentation. What  makes this even more of a winner for me is that the colour lasts.

  2. Aww I'm super happy to see this post! I'm really glad you are happy with them as they just wasn't getting used and deserved to be loved! (I have a full size orgasm that I always pulled out instead of this). I had NO idea the Overtime lipstick was used on Jennifer Lawrence! Cool fact :)
