Discount M.A.C Haul|Revisited
I talked about my last huge discount M.A.C haul right at the start of this blog and about my affinity for the colour palettes and long-lasting formulations of M.A.C products. Growing up, it was always a real issue trying to find the right shades of makeup for my skin tone. Until, funnily enough, I discovered M.A.C when I lived in Germany. My ex was in the stage show Saturday Night Fever and they used M.A.C and so got a discount in store. Which I took full advantage of!
And that's where it started.
I mentioned that it's not easy (darn near impossible) to find genuine, discounted M.A.C products, especially in darker shades, but I found them! In fact, I had a couple of people who understandably questioned whether or not they were genuine products. They are 100% genuine. I shop the Luxury Sales site a lot, as you'll know if you're regulars to this blog and I would never buy or use and certainly not recommend duff products or products I don't own, aspire to own or haven't been reliably recommended. It's in our honesty policy, because that's really important to me.
So, rest assured we're all above board, because I got an official confirmation from the Sales site and I have been enjoying my haul ever since. Yep, it's still going strong. So much so, I thought I'd revisit it and also do a giveaway on one of the cult products, the Strobe Cream. That's because being a busy new mum (and perhaps over ambitious in what I thought I'd achieve make up wise) has meant I haven't opened or used it - despite aching to. So I thought why not give it to someone who will?
I got up to 30% off everything I bought, which was perfect as I was just into maternity leave. I went on a major saving mission and had purposefully bought very little or bought very strategically for myself throughout pregnancy (making lists, comparing prices, researching the best deals, maximising offers as that's really what I'm like!). But, I had put some savings, vouchers and my gift money aside for a couple of push treats! I knew it would be a while before I would, so I thought of the long-term money-saving. And the mummy-saving! I was right, as I am still going strong and haven't had to buy anything further since!
