Beauty - Mac and The balm mini haul + swatches

Hey lovelies,
I have been bad and yet again bought more new makeup, I know I know I need to slow down on the shopping, but being ill for so long, I needed cheering up, well that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it....
So anyway I was minding my own business when a friend text me Hayley your a bad influence!! to tell me Debenhams had some beauty items with 10% off, so of course once I had this info I had to look! when I saw The balm was included in this offer I new I had to have the Mary-Lou Manizer I have been dreaming of this highlighter since Christmas when I received the Nude tude palette and loved it and new I had to get more from this brand. You can see my review of that here, I was expecting this highlighter to be good but WOW I bloody love it, its the most perfect highlighter I've tried.

It's a dreamy formula that blends beautifully and just leaves the perfect amount of highlight, it makes me skin glow! I cannot stress how immense this stuff is.
Anyway to make my order up to £30 and get free delivery I decided to order a cheeky new Mac lippie, in the shade Mehr, a beautiful mauve shade in the matte finish, which is my fav finish at the moment, I'm all about that matte.

Like I said I'm all about the matte at the moment, and this shade doesn't disappoint, it feels lovely on the lips I don't find it drying at all and as you would expect from the matte formula it lasts ages on the lips.

Mary-lou Manizer - Debenhams
Mac Mehr Lipstick - Debenhams

I'm really happy with my new makeup purchases, and would defo suggest giving these a little swatch if you see them in store!!
I am gonna try and slow down on my spending now, (as if ) if not I'm gonna quickly be poor.

Have you tried either of these items? what do you think of them?
