National Lipstick Day Mini Haul ft MAC and Urban Decay

So Tuesday brought around another strange and fake 'holiday' meant to sucker people like me into buying lipstick- as if I needed to be. Casually flicking through bloglovin (follow me here haha) I noticed on Miss Budget Beauty's Blog that Debenhams had a £5 off lipstick offer and it would've been a sin to pass it up! I did restrict myself but here is what I got:


Debenhams also had a free gift with purchase. Mine ended up being the philosophy purity cleanser sample- a bit disappointing but I don't know what I was expecting!

Let's get into the lipsticks I got- starting with the Urban Decay!

Firstly- would you look at that packaging! It feels so sturdy and looks really pretty. This is the revolution lipstick in Rapture. It's a kind of plummy berry tone. I was thinking ahead to autumn/winter with this purchase and I can't wait to get wearing it. It feels nice and creamy although I haven't put it on my lips yet so I can't really judge. This lipstick actually has no scent- I found this strange but good. 

MAC Next


This is, of course, Girl About Town. I first featured this as worn by my friend Theresa in my top 3 beauty crushes ages ago- see that here. It was the first MAC lipstick I lusted after but not the first I bought weirdly. It's a lovely bright blue toned pink but not too bright or blue toned. It's very wearable. it's an amplified cream formula so is moisturising and creamy feeling and has that unmistakable vanilla scent.

And Lastly...

Yup- I got Heroine. I've been loving purples lately and this is a gorgeous one. It's a matte formula, not to dark and not too bright. I cannot wait to wear this. Not sure it's 'work appropriate' but I'll find somewhere to wear it! 

So that's all folks. The lot came to £31 with free shipping- the mac ones alone would have been that normally so essentially I got the Urban Decay for free- this is how I justify spending money!
