Ok before anyone tells me I already know a few months ago I said that I wouldn’t buy any more make-up however I think I just can’t help myself. I took a drive to Birmingham to get the basics for myself.

The Bullring shopping centre is so beautiful. I just love the fact that it is easy to get around. The toilets are easy to find two. Useful for someone like me who has to remind her son, its toilet time. I will be going there again soon. They sell all the American treats that I grew up loving. Such as Reese’s pieces, Hershey’s and Oreo’s. If the queue for the Krispy Kreme doughnuts was not long I would have bought a dozen.

Anyway my main reason for going Birmingham was to buy some MAC products. I bought foundation StudioFix in shade NW43. I would have thought that I needed one of their C shades or NC shades as I have yellow undertones. But it looks good. I also bought powder blush in shade ‘format’, pink bronze pigment, and black tile eye shadow.

So that brings my MAC collection from 2 items to 6. I was supposed to buy a mineralizer but could not remember the shade that my friend used on me. I will definitely look to buy that next pay day as I am so into light barely there coverage. The brush the MAC lady used felt so nice on my skin it had white tip. I think its the 187 brush. But at £25 too much money for me to spend. There is always Ebay.

I would love to win £1-5k shopping spree in Bullring so I could buy some makeup from MAC, Bobbi Brown, Bare Escentuals, Nars, Fashion Fair, Iman etc etc and then splurge on clothes and whatever else takes my fancy for me and my kids.

My challenge to self is to master the black smokey eye. I can do brown and purple really good so far.
