I was lucky enough to receive a few MAC goodies over Christmas, including my first MAC blush and eyeshadow and a new lipstick (I really rate the MAC lipsticks as the ones I've got have all been really good in terms of colour payoff and staying power).
Blush in 'Peaches'- I really wanted a peachy blush as I don't think pinks suit me much, I like to bronze my face up quite a lot and I feel like a peach colour on the apples of the cheeks really complements the tan colour of the bronzer. You need very little of this as it's highly pigmented, just a great colour which I can imagine looks good on most skin tones.
Lipstick in 'Rebel'- I love a deep plum colour and this one is gorgeous, the fact that it works just as well as a stain as it does applied heavily with a lip brush, is the reason I think it's so great. Great for this season when dark purples are everywhere, it also transitions well into spring as the stain it leaves is more of a fuchsia colour.
Eyeshadow in 'Satin Taupe'- I definitely don't need any more eye shadows, but all the talk in the beauty world is enough to drive a girl crazy, especially when products are recommended by makeup artists and hyped by bloggers. This shadow is no exception, hyped in the beauty world, this colour was an easy choice as my first MAC eyeshadow. The brown/purple tone is something that I know I'll get a lot of wear out of as I find these colours easy to wear, they're a fail safe as I know they'll always look good. Now I just need to fill up my little palette (more excuses to suck me into the store). What colours would you guys recommend as my next 3 shadows from MAC? I'm considering cranberry, beauty marked, charcoal brown, naked lunch, all that glitters...and so on...and so on...there are too many to choose from!
Thanks for reading,
