MAC Style Black Haul & Volcanic Ash Exfoliator Review

Nail Lacquers-Seriously Hip, Baby Goth Girl, Nocturnelle, Mattene Lipstick-Midnight Media,
Cremesheen Lipstick-Black Knight, Glimmerglass-Bing Black, Blackware & of course Volcanic Ash Exfoliator.
Yay! So my parcel came through today, this is the most I've ever ordered from MAC.
I was disappointed though as, I got an email from MAC saying they've refunded me because Young Punk eyeshadow was sold out and this was the shadow that really appealed to me and weird enough I snapped a order as soon as it came out online.

Ah Volcanic Ash Exfoliator, I was eager to get my hands on this! This has been a positive review everywhere. So it's a hefty price of £13.50 but incredibly worth it.
The smell reminds me of the scent you get from walking into a Pagan spell shop, very unisex and divine. It can be used on the face and body and yes I tried out both!
The texture is everything you want a exfoliator to be, it has generous granules in every dollop.
This does what it says 'exfoliate' which a lot of scrubs do not! You massage this into wet skin and instantly feel the granules cleansing you out. The other most important thing is that usually exfoliators leave you feeling dry, but hey this one is the opposite it gives you seriously soft moisturised skin.
Now for what I don't like is the fact that it's not so good in the shower, as when you massage it in, it sort of flicks round your whole bathroom. I much prefer to use exfoliating soap.
Also, yes you about us getting more in the tube? It's a 100mls but it should be bigger if it's tended for your body also.


  1. I missed out on both volcanic items both times they were released -sigh- I do wish that they would make it perm!

  2. Awww I missed out on it last time. They so should make it perm, maybe they will as it's getting a lot of attention! x

  3. I'm really intrigued to try them, but I don't want to spend hours cleaning my bathroom up afterwards and that's the complaint everyone seems to have about them.

  4. hun check this out:

    lovely MACs


  5. After Dazzleglasses selling well for two collections, they went permanent. Here's hoping that will happen for the volcanic ash items.
    I probably would have bought more Style Black items had I not needed to fix my car. I really would have liked to at least to have the mineralize eye shadows and one of the Glimmerglasses. I only got Baby Goth Girl nail polish.

  6. Rosie- I think they're so worth it just for your face. x

    Rhaindropz- I'll check that out thanks. x

    Deb- I don't usually get a lot from collections. I've only gone this mad on this and the 'Heatherette' collection. It's too expensive. x

  7. wow this is a really nice haul.
    i really like this collection too

    and im a new follower and love your blog.
