Hello there my lovelies, hope you all had a lovely long weekend, I know I did, I have some outfit of the day posts to show you later too :) Well the postman has been this morning with a few little items I have ordered from Mac, I actually ordered these from Debenhams, as over the Easter weekend they had a 10% off sale which made me a very happy girl.
I saw this little mirror and thought this would be perfect item to pop in my handbag for touch ups, its actually a hardened metal not glass so wont break and has a cute little pouch to keep it in, and for around £4 which I paid I love it.
Lipstick in the ever famous Hue. Hue is a pinky nude shade, in a glaze formulation, so it takes a few coats to get alot of pigmentation, but this is the perfect everyday shade and I think this would suit any skin tone.
My second purchase was another lipstick in the shade Blankety. I would describe this shade as a beige, with a slight pink undertone. Blankety is an amplified creme formulation so is very pigmented but still has a lovely creamy sheen and although blankety is still in the nude family it is alot darker than the conventional nude shade so if you are not a fan of pale nudes which can wash some people out, this would be your perfect go to shade.
The final but probably my favourite purchase was this beautiful lipstick in the shade Girl About Town. This is a vibrant shade of darkened, bright fuchsia pink, and an amplified creme finish, giving lots of pigmentation but also a nice creamy sheen. This is the perfect night time shade and for the braver among us a gorgeous summer shade, I will definitely be testing this one out during the day with a nice summer dress .
Eyeshadow in Nylon, Nylon is a very pale gold with fine
icy shimmer. It is a frost finish and is very blendable and buildable, and perfect for use on the inner corner or as a highlighter shade. This would suit most skin tones but I definitely think this looks better on those with a darker skin tone.
Eyeshadow in woodwinked. Woodwinked is a veluxe pearl, it looks alot more bronze in the pan but upon application its a warm toned gold, without any of the usual yellow undertones you get with gold shadows. Looks lovely either all over the lid or in the outer corner blended into the crease.
Pan eyeshadow in mulch. Mulch is a velvet finish and is a gorgeous brown bronze, it is known to have a slight red undertone however this does not show on my complexion. As this is a velvet so not overly shimmery makes a great crease colour for a smoky eye.

I have now converted to my eyeshadows in pan form, I have a 15 shadow pallet which I love instead of having single shadows everywhere and also a quad which I find sooo handy to pop in my four favourite eyeshadows to suit any look. I have now filled my neutral pallet so am going to work on a bright/smoky pallet do any of you gorgeous ladies have any must have colours in mind? xoxo
