So if you follow me on Snapchat (Katierabbettemakeup) you may have seen I went on a crazy makeup shopping spree in Dublin yesterday. I save up for weeks on end to do this every few months and not going to lie, I usually spend a fortune; But. I've worked hard and some of the items are essential for my kit. If you want to see what I picked up., keep scrolling! :)
I went to Brown Thomas on Grafton Street and I love the MAC Store there. I needed a couple of foundations for my kit so I went for my trusty Studio Fix Fluid and I got the shades NC30 and NC40.
I also picked up a travel size Storbe Cream. I love this as a primer as it adds glow to the skin. And the travel size is only €10 so it's good value too!
I also picked up two lip pencils in Beet and Chestnut. I love the MAC liners. They retail at €17 and are my favourites to use.
The whole reason I went to Brown Thomas was for the BACK TO MAC scheme they have which is trading in 6 empties (glass/plastic containers) for a free Lipstick/Lipgloss. I had been gathering empties for a while so I picked up three lipsticks and saved €60!
The shades I got where Film Noir (a deep brown), Brave (Pink Nude) and Stone (Grey Brown). I am excited to use these shades so keep an eye out for looks with them.
After Brown Thomas I headed over to the Inglot Store on St. Anne's Street to pick up the 77 eyeliner, duraline and two of the body sparkles in 71 and 49 (pictured below). As I have a Pro card I received a 20% discount which was great and the girls were lovely as always.
We stopped off in Liffey Valley on the way home for some food in TGI Friday's and I'm sure there's no surprise that a quick visit to boots was essential and in particular the YSL counter. I bought the new Top Secrets Moisturiser that can also be used as a primer. A Touché Eclat in Light 1 (The limited edition one) and a YSL lipstick no 26.
L'OREAL & NARS
The least exciting but probably most practical items I got were from MUJI which is a random shop on Chathem Street just off Grafton Street. They do all kinds of nick nacks and storage and I just picked up some slim cotton tips, and some storage containers for pigments.
So that's my Haul from yesterday's travels. Have you tried any of these things? Like I said before, I did spend a lot of money but I have been saving for a number of weeks/months to get these items. They were all bought by me, with my money so no hate! :)
I hope you enjoyed this blog post. If you'd like to see more of these hauls let me know below.
Until next time,
