The lipsticks, one blush and the paint pot were all purchased from a site called Secret Sales, which is one of the best websites I could ever recommend. They launch new sales every day of the week from well-known brands (such as MAC, Prada, Michael Kors, Hugo Boss, Clinique, Jimmy Choo, etc. I could go on!) which are always between 30 and 70% off! Amazing!
I also purchased the lip liner, the other blush and the eyeshadow from Swindon Designer Outlet which is an outlet store near to where I live. Outlet stores normally sell older season items and at heavily discounted prices. I'm not bothered about everything I buy being 'in trend' and 'in season' - if I like it, then I'll buy it!
M.A.C Blush | Warm SoulSo pretty, so pink. This blush just called my name and how on earth could I resist? It's pink and sparkly - every girly makeup geek's dream (insert heart eye emoji). I can admit that it does look a little daunting and very vibrant but I can assure you that it's not as pigmented as it looks and, to me, this is a good thing, especially when it comes to blush as sometimes we can all get a little carried away and we don't want to end up looking like a clown!
I have had my beady eye on this blush for a little while now.. It's a perfect shade for these cooler Autumn and Winter months as it is quite a warm nude toned blush, yet still has that shimmer in it to give you that natural glow. Normally, I would never pick up a blush that is this shade but I decided to be open minded and try this one out to see how I liked it in comparison to my pink blushes.
M.A.C Painterly Pot | Soft Ochre
I have been lusting over this product for over a year now and I could never find it anywhere and if I could, it was always sold out! I'm hoping that this product will live up to it's high expectations that I currently hold for it.M.A.C Single Eyeshadow | Beauty Marked Velvet
M.A.C Lip Pencil | Chic TrickI have been after a red lip pencil for some time now but I just kept procrastinating and never actually got around to buying one. I saw this one called Chic Trick as I was browsing the MAC section in the Cosmetic Company Store (inside the Designer Outlet) and noticed this red lip pencil so of course I picked it up. Unfortunately, I think it's more of a bright dark pink shade but I'm sure I can work with it.
M.A.C Satin Lipstick | Mocha
Do you not just love the name of this lipstick? I don't even like Mocha's but the word just sounds really cosy and warm (no? Just me..) and, as you can see, it's a lovely warm nude colour. I used to own a beautiful nude that suited me down to a T, but of course my sister borrowed this lipstick and never gave it back and obviously now she has no idea of it's where abouts..| Verve
I kept wondering where I had heard the word 'verve' from before, then it came to me a couple of days ago and I remembered that there is a sparkly silver shadow shade in the Naked 2 palette that I own that is called 'verve'.. Anyway, I don't own many MAC lipsticks and I really don't know why because I just love them. I also don't own a lipstick that is this particular shade either and I really like how deep the shade is.| Twig
Immediately you would have thought that this lipstick shade would be more of a brown nude due to the name of it however, it's this really pretty dark pink nude. I wore this lipstick for the first time last week and the only way I can really describe the shade is that it's a darker version of my natural lip shade - which I personally really like.
What have you bought from M.A.C recently?xoxo
