A Shopaholics Journey #3- Haul from Topshop and MAC

Hey Girlies,

Hope you all are having a fab weekend. Yesterday being Saturday, I decided to hit Grafton St in search of some bargains in the sales. Typical me I ended up buying one sale item and all the rest were full price. Not to worry though as I am so chuffed with my purchases.

First off I went into Topshop, I was told by so many bloggers on twitter how fab the makeup range. When I get off the Luas, the shop is just right in front of me so it would of been rude not to go in. I went in just to have a look at the makeup, some of the products I wasn't to sure about but I did pick up a few bits. I saw a cute necklace on sale which was basically the only item I got at reduced price. I also purchased pink bow clips which I loved instore. My sister says they make your hair look so pretty.

Topshop Cream Blush

L2R Flush + Head Over Heals

Topshop Lipstick In Nevada

Next I ventured into Brown Thomas. I was planning on just window shopping here as I didn't really want to buy anything. This all changed when I seen that MAC's new collection Semi Precious and Fashion Flower was launched. I didn't think this collection was going to be released until next week. Isn't it the first Thursday of every month??

Well that being said, there was few bits in this collection I wanted. I spent a good while swatching some of the products. Finally I narrowed everything down and I came away with the following goodies.

MAC Lipsticks

L2R- Lush Amber (Semi Precious) + Ever Hip (Fashion Flower)

MAC Mineralize Eyeshadow

L2R- Rare Find + Smoked Ruby

Lastly a necessity as I recently ran out of it.

MAC Brush Cleanser

I went to another few shops but didn't see anything I liked enough to justify more spending. I really love all the products I purchased. I will put some swatches up soon.

What do you think of the Semi Precious Collection?...Is there any items you have your eye on??



  1. I didn't realise Semi Precious and Fashion Flower were out, I haven't noticed it at my local MAC counter and it's not on the website...hopefully it's there when I'm in work next! xxx

  2. I think i need Everhip in my life!


  3. I need to get those Topshop blushes, I have Butterscotch and love it but the ones you got are fab.

  4. Those semi-precious eyeshadows look amazing!
