So.. I may have placed an order last week.. totally by accident you understand. No but really I went online to buy ONE blush, it started with one and grew because ‘well.. you have to buy enough to get free P&P, right?’ and then.. well.. I have no excuse for the rest. I saw someone talk about Harmony blush the other day and was totally convinced that I needed it.. I’m yet to use it so I can’t tell you if it lives up to the hype in my mind but I’m keeping my fingers crossed. It looks like it could work as a crossover contour too for my skintone. My next purchase was Fling brow pencil, it was a sensible addition as I’m STILL putting together my epic brow product review and that’s one of (if not my) all time favourites so I needed to have it for the video.. needed.
Lipsticks.. this is where I always come unstuck with MAC – there are so many I want and so many I never even KNEW I wanted until I get on the site and start googling swatches. I usually start looking for something I already wanted, it’s out of stock and I buy several I’d never heard of. In this case Chatterbox was on my list but Kinda Sexy was a total unknown.. I love them both.. that never happens. Paradisco was also on my list but I wanted some more summer colours so I chose Coral (lovely, great pay off) and Stars ‘n’ Rockets (turned out to be a sheer and iridescent but I like it) for colour pops and Blackberry for a deeper crease colour that wouldn’t be too contrasting. Most of my MAC shadows are neutral so I’m working on a colour palette – I also bought a new palette.
L-R – Paradisco, Stars’n’Rockets, Blackberry, Coral, Harmony, Fling, Kinda Sexy, Chatterbox
Overall very successful haul.. I rarely like everything I buy online but I am really happy with everything here. The only thing that was a bit of a surprise was Stars ‘n’ Rockets.. I did a little swatch-search but I obviously didn’t look far enough it to it because I was expecting a brighter, bolder colour.. I’m not sure how well this will do layered on top of other shadows but watch this space for a summery makeup look with all of the above very soon.. as well as the lipsticks in the 30 lips in 30 days series of course 😉
