Why hello there! It's been a while since I've been on this blog and I've missed it quite a lot :( I've been working full time and more personal things have also happened which meant that blogging had to be put on the back bench. With that aside, I'm doing a Mecca Maxima haul today! I caught up with an old friend about a week ago and picked up some goodies so I'm going to share what I got with you.

Too Faced Milk Chocolate Soleil Bronzer:
Now that it's close to winter, I've gotten quite pale and decided to get a bronzer to warm up my complexion. I've never really tried a bronzer because I'm always scared it'll look too orange and muddy so I decided to try this bronzer. This bronzer is light in colour so it's perfect for people with fair skin to add warmth without it looking too orange and dark. It's also matte so it can also be used to contour lightly. Since it's a light bronzer I can quickly apply it when I'm in a rush but it's also buildable for a more bronzed look. Added bonus is that it smells like chocolate *heart eyes emoji*.

Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Naked:
I was so excited that UD is finally in Australia I had to get at least one thing from there. I couldn't pick between the Naked palettes so I decided to get a single shadow in Naked. One of my favourite Youtubers lindseyrem raved about this eyeshadow and it's the perfect everyday colour! It's a lovely matte beige-y brown shade that's buttery and smooth. It's great all over the lid or in the crease and is honestly a must have for everyone!

Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup:
I was also running low on my foundation so I decided to try a new one. I hadn't heard much about this foundation but I really wish I looked up on it. Sadly, this is the only product from my haul that I don't like. I loved the application at first and the foundation gave me a really natural finish whilst covering my acne scars and redness.  However, after trying it a couple more times I just didn't get that nice finish. It was harder to build up and I could only get a light coverage. I will say it does give a lovely matte and velvety finish but it tended to cake up on my skin. I really only wear foundation to work and prefer something with a fuller coverage, so I ended up returning this product (thank you Mecca for your amazing returns policy).

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Bronzer in Luminous Bronze Light:
This is my last product and possibly one of the most exciting things in my haul. I love Hourglass and have always wanted to purchase something from there and while at Mecca I thought 'stuff it' and went for it. This bronzer has shimmer which is something I tend to steer away from but it gives such a lovely glow to the skin. I like to dust this along my cheekbones to give me some more definition but  also adding healthy glow. It makes me look more radiant and warm which I really need in winter. It's absolutely beautiful and I'm tempted to buy their blushes now!

So that's it for today! I probably won't do another haul for a while now, but do stay tuned for a new video coming up later this week to do with lipsticks and some new blog posts :) I'm really hoping to post a lot more so fingers crossed.
