When I first came to France about a month ago, my first stop was Paris and everywhere I looked there seemed to be a MAC store. You know how they say you're never more than fifty feet away from a rat in inner cities? Well, while in Paris, I felt like I was never more than fifty feet away from a MAC store (and a rat, for that matter, because I saw about five). Naively, I assumed that MAC stores were all the rage up and down France; so when I moved to a little town near Bergerac I was shocked to discover my nearest MAC was a 25 euro and hour and half train journey away. Quelle horreure, as my new French pals would say (or not say, because I don't currently have any French pals). As I'm not made of money, I've made a little wish list so that when I next go to Bordeaux, the home of my local MAC, I can buy everything in one go, and live in a little MAC heaven until the next time I decide I new a lipstick. And I thought I'd share it with you! Aren't you lucky!

MATTE LIPSTICK IN YASH -Inspired by fashioninflux's Lydia, this orangey toned nude is as close to a coral as I'll wear as a nod to Spring which is definitely well underway here. Bright colours just don't suit me, and while I definitely don't need another MAC matte nude, I may as well complete my collection!

PREP + PRIME FIX + -Powders just aren't cutting it for me anymore; they're no match for my oily skin and the warmer climate and my face ends up looking cakey and patchy. Having been impressed with the results of Urban Decay's SETTING SPRAY, I thought I'd give MAC's offering a go.

EYESHADOW IN MOTIF -A lovely rose gold shade without all the shimmer, making it perfect for everyday wear. It has a tasteful frost finish, which was so complimentary on my skin when I swatched it instore and once I have a bit of a tan going it'll become my go-to shade.

IN EXTREME DIMENSION LASH MASCARA -Perhaps the purchase I'm most excited about is this mascara. The Internet is awash with songs of praise for it, and I desperately want to get my hands on it and put my two cents in. Who knows, maybe it'll replace my Lancôme Holy Grail!

STUDIO NAIL LACQUER IN MEAN AND GREEN -This isn't the most fitting shade for Spring / Summer, but I've had my eye on it for ages, its such a unique colour and has a nice holographic-y finish. 

FLUIDLINE BROW GELCREME IN DEEP DARK BRUNETTE -I've been on the hunt for a new brow product for a long time and this one certainly seems to fit the bill.

STUDO SCULPT DEFINING POWDER IN MEDIUM DARK -The perfect contouring powder to define those cheekbones and it comes in a wide variety of shades so theres one to suit every skin tone. 

LIP PENCIL IN WHIRL -Although Kylie Jenner has admitted to having had temporary lip fillers, I'm still in love with this nineties, your-lips-but-better mauve to exaggerate the lips or pair with my staple favourite, Velvet Teddy (also Jenner-infleunced- she must've made millions for MAC!). That being said, everything I've bought from MAC that she claims to wear has been aaa-mazing.

I hope you liked my selection from MAC- would you buy any of these products? If you follow me on INSTAGRAM you'll know that I had to buy a replacement MacBook charger, but now my laptops ready and raring to go, keep your eyes peeled for more posts soon! What have you been lusting over from MAC?
