Mini Beauty Haul

The other day I took a trip downtown with a few friends and came home with a couple of new products. There's nothing quite like spending your day off with good friends and a little shopping in the city! 

The first thing I picked up was the Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask ($27 CA). I've been wanting to try this mask for a while and when I saw it on the shelf at Sephora I thought, "why not?". I've used it a few times and I have to say I really quite like it! If you'd like to see a more in-depth review of this product let me know, and I can make a blog post about it. 

I also picked up the Bobbi Brown Corrector in the shade "Porcelain Bisque" ($30 CA). This corrector is meant to go under the eyes to neutralize darkness and generally brighten up the skin. A pricey product, but I really wanted to give it a try after hearing so much about it.  

MAC Brick-O-La

 MAC Plumful

Finally, I picked up two MAC lipsticks, "Brick-O-La" and "Plumful". Both of these colours have been raved about by one of my favourite bloggers essiebutton, so of course I couldn't resist trying them for myself! Brick-O-La is an Amplified Creme formula, so it is fairly opaque but still moisturizing and comfortable to wear. I love this shade! Its a beautiful berry/terracotta red. Plumful is a Lustre formula so its a little more sheer, but build-able.

I'm very happy with my purchases so far! Has anyone else done some shopping lately?
