If you follow me on Twitter, you might have seen me tweet about a spending ban... I've given myself a 2 week spending ban because I've bought so much recently and it's only fair to give my bank balance a rest so for the next two weeks I can't buy ANYTHING at all (except petrol for my car) and I'm banning myself from buying food such as takeaways and McDonalds.  If I succeed in this little challenge then I'll treat myself to something as a reward, I'd really like some new boots for the colder season so I think those will be my little treat.  

I have ordered some new bits online including REN skincare, some nail polishes and today I received my MAC goodies which you can see below...
As a true MAC lover and having not bought from MAC for a good few month, I thought I'd order a couple of things to keep my addiction strong.  When I was in Vegas this summer I spotted the most gorgeous lipstick in the MAC store but they were out of stock, the shade was Up The Amp and as soon as I saw it was in stock online I quickly added it to my basket.  The colour is a a vivd lavender violet shade and the formula is an amplified creme so it's very pigmented, I know I'll get a lot of use out of this shade especially in the autumn/winter season.  Seeing the new Retro Matte collection I spotted the matching lipliner for my new lipstick in the shade Fashion Boost so threw that in the basket too.

Heres a picture of me wearing Up The Amp lipstick and Fashion Boost lipliner... I'm totally in love with this combo!
I didn't hit the £30.00 spend to qualify for free delivery so I threw in the travel size version of Fix+ spray.  This little beauty will be perfect for keeping in my handbag to touch up my makeup during the day and refresh my skin.  

My next MAC haul will be (hopefully) when the RIRI collection comes out, I only managed to grab Riri Woo last time but I've already got my list ready for this collection.

Have you tried Up The Amp?
