A Whole Lot of MAC! (Plus November Favourites)

A few weeks ago I got an extremely generous present from one of my subscribers.  She works as a MAC make-up artist and sent a ton of amazing make-up to both me and my sister, Erika.  I was totally shocked and couldn't believe her generosity (you can see my reaction here!) but at first I had decided not to mention it at all on my blog or channel.  Then after using some of it in my recent videos and having been sent numerous requests to do a haul on what she gave me, I have finally given in.  I hope you don't take this the wrong way, like I'm bragging or showing off because that's not the case at all.  It was just requested so many times I couldn't ignore, and being that I didn't really buy any make-up at all this last month I thought it would be okay.  I won't be making a proper November Favourites post as I didn't purchase anything new or groundbreaking, however the first three products in this haul were the ones I used the most last month.  

So here's what my lovely subscriber sent me :)

  1. I bought the Photo Realism quad when it came out... two summers ago? And I haven't quite been able to pull it off... Any way to do a day-time look using this quad that makes brown eyes pop? It would be great if you could give me pointers or do a tutorials♥

  2. Gorgeous stuff Anna! I would love a review on the MAC Studio Moisture Tint. I usually wear foundation but I've been wondering what tinted moisturizers would be like instead as my skin is really good (normal) and the only thing I'm trying to conceal is the redness on my cheeks. Would these be enough do you think? I would also love to see a tutorial using some of those dark blue eyeshadow as I think they would look good on brown eyes (opposed to the 80's blue eyeshadow). Thanks Anna!
