Lately I haven't done as much makeup shopping as I usually do.. partly because there's not much I want and partly because I'm waiting till payday. I also tend to buy buy buy when it comes to MAC..and unfortunately it's not all used.. I forget I have things..and colours get neglected. With that said there were a few bits in MAC.. that recentley caught my eye!
From the MAC in High def collection, I bought the lipstick 'High Def' I really like this colour, its quite similar to those from the permanent collection, 'Twig' and 'Brave' come to mind. It's described online to be mid tone neutral coral, which I don't entirely agree with for me it's neutral dusky brown/pinkish colour. I love it tho because once on, especially my skin-tone it looks nude with a hint of pink. I was trying to steer away for nudey pinks.. and try to get more brown tones.. but this one was just calling me! The finish is amplified so it definitely gives a full lip look! It also has little freckles of shimmer so the lipstick ends up look quite glossy.
The second lipstick I got is from the permanent collection - 'Politely Pink' this lipstick is gorgeous its so sheer and so sparkly its really great on its own, dolled up with gloss or even over another colour. It sort of reminds me of 'Angel' but is much more sheer and the finish is lustre, to me it's a pink version of 'Bubbles'. It's described online as 'Well mannered dirty pink frost' and to me that is a great description..[LOL] I love my pinks and this one is FAB!
The third item I got was from the Make-Up Art Cosmetics (Maria Kalman) collection and it's the eye shadow called 'Off the Page' when I first went to buy this colour, I had forgot my pro card and wanted to wait.. then when I went back it was sold out.. I was lucky because Selfridges still had it in stock! I LOVE bright eyeshadows but when it comes to buying them I always opt for the smokey darks or neutrals, because I use them so much more. HOWEVER.. this orange is amazing its a really bright orange with a rust/gold shimmer.. It's a frost e/s therefore not as pigmented but instead super sparkly! Off the page is lovely and I can't wait to do a look around this eye shaddow! I will be sure to share it with you so watch out!
So there you have it.. 3 of my latest purchases.. If you have any questions about the products or anything else, please comment or email us! Lots of love..
