Haul & FOTD- Mac, Topshop, Matalan

So this is quite a lengthy post including a few mixed things and a video thrown in at the end, because I am going on holiday on Sunday for 10 days and wanted to cram in as much as possible! I went on a daytrip to Canterbury (my university town) yesterday and popped into Mac, where I treated myself to Nylon eyeshadow and Topshop, where I bought a couple of bits in the sale.
I came home to a cool new makeup storage thingy and a beach bag that my mum had picked up for me from Matalan, so I would say all of this makes a haul, wouldn't you?

First Off is Mac Nylon. I needed a highlight colour for my palette, and Have been lusting after this one for a while:
Nylon at home in it's new palette. Nylon is a Frost finish and described on the Mac site as 'pale gold' but I would say 'white gold'. Perfect inner corner & brow highlight colour (wearing my FOTD below)

And in topshop I noticed this stack of 3 Lip polishes reduced from £14(I'm not sure if this was correct labelling?) to £3! (£2.70 with my student discount ;) Bargain! What I have already from Topshop's cosmetic range I love, so I thought I'd give these babies a try.

3 shades: cherry picker, chiffon, cracker

Cherry picker, Chiffon, Cracker. (first 2 I have already tried) All have a lovely shimmer to them.
FOTD using Mac Nylon & Cherry picker lip polish:

Face: Maybelline pure cover mineral concealer, Mac studio sculpt foundation-NC15, Bourjois blush- Lilas d'or, Mac MSF-soft and gentle. Spritz of Fix+.

Eyes:Illamasqua brow cake-thunder, Mac prep+prime eye-light, Mac eyeshadows: Shroom(lid), Sable(crease), Twinks (outer corner), Nylon (inner corner & brow bone), Pixi gel liner-onyx, Maybelline one by one volum' express mascara.
Lips: Gosh Lip marker- berry, Topshop lip polish- Cherry picker.

Also from Topshop:

'R' bracelet on purple string- reduced to £2

Matalan beach bag:

Lovely and bright with rope handles. £6

And my new bright makeup storage thingy, also from Matalan (Thanks mum!):

How pretty.
And now here's a little video I filmed once I put all of my stuff into it; A makeup collection and storage video if you will:
