The Loop/Duty Free MAC haul

My brother was away with work recently so I placed two orders using The Loop's Shop & Collect service and also their discount code (looptwsum15 - valid until November 30th) to get some MAC goodies that had been on my wishlist for a while! 

Although I have lots of eyeshadow palettes (total addict), I really liked the look of the Times Nine palettes from MAC. They are the same size as a standard quad, but with nine shadows in them. I chose Burgundy Times Nine and the shadows in it are: Honeylust, Poppyseed, Quarry, Antiqued, Embark, Noir, Haux, Star Violet and Sketch. I already have two or three of the shadows but some of the others were on my wishlist, so I think this is a pretty good buy. It cost €34 in The Loop, compared to €40 on the high street.

Next up is another highlighter (yes, I know that I don't actually need another highlighter but I have wanted this one for a few years!). I bought Soft & Gentle and I am very excited to use this. I don't think I have a dupe in my collection. This cost €25.50, compared to €31 on the high street.

Up until last winter, I had never braved a red lip and that changed when I bought Nars Cruella. I really liked wearing it in winter so I decided to take the plunge and buy Ruby Woo - both the pencil & lipstick. They are beautiful in the tube/pencil so I am really hoping that they look okay on me! These were €17 for the lipstick compared to €20 in stores and €14.05 for the lip pencil compared to €17 in stores.

I also bought a Pro Longwear pencil in the shade Rebellious to wear with my berry toned lipsticks. I love the look of this & think it will match them perfectly. This was €17 compared to €20 in stores.

Finally, I bought a bottle of Fix +, which was €17 compared to €21 in stores. I don't think I've ever owned this before so I am looking forward to using it to see if it lives up to the hype!

In total, I saved €44.45 by placing two separate orders and using the €10 discount twice on top of the discounted prices in The Loop so I am very happy with that and excited to use my products! I'm crossing my fingers that Ruby Woo suits me!

Again, I would like to point out that I am not sponsored by The Loop & paid for these products with my own money - I just shared the discount code in case anybody else wants to avail of it!

Have you tried any of these  products? What is on your MAC wishlist? I'd love to hear in the comments below!
