Mini MAC Haul

Hello Ladies,

I was very fortunate to receive some MAC gift vouchers for my birthday in May, which I hadn’t had a chance to spend.  I decided to wait until I was going somewhere or until I found something I just had to have instead of wasting them on simply enhancing my current collection.

As I recently posted, Andy and I went to the races and I thought this was the perfect excuse to buy some new products.  I decided to buy some new eyeshadows. I always wear brown to create a smokey eye look as I think it is more flattering than black, so I opted for a new brown and a pink/mauve colour which was the same colour as the dress I’d be wearing.  The two eyeshadows I bought were: Jest in Frost and Satin Taupe in Frost.  When wearing them I added some Brown Down to the outer corners and crease to darken the look.  I must say these two shadows have quickly become two of my favourites and I’ve been wearing them at every opportunity since I bought them.  I really love the colours.

I also bought a lipstick, I had wanted the limited edition Cut A Caper but unfortunately it had also sold out at my local MAC.  I asked the sales advisor if she could recommend a dupe, and she initially suggested Costa Chic, but this doesn’t have the Sheen that Cut A Caper does.  I then noticed Blossom Culture in Sheen Supreme and I have to say it is a really great dupe.  I love the colour and I am waiting for an opportunity to wear it.

Believe it or not, these really are pictures of the same lipstick!

I was a bit annoyed that MAC have upped the price of their lipsticks to £14.00 but everything costs more now doesn’t it…were any of you lucky enough to get your hands on Cut A Caper?

    I'm a bit annoyed at the price increase too! I went and bought Venus from the Heavenly Creatures collection and was a bit confused when I was charged £14! x

    Satin Taupe is probably my all time favourite shadow, I wear it pretty much every day simply with Patina for a subtle smoky eye.

    I really wanted "Cut A Caper" – I wish I would have snapped it up, but I have a lipstick called "Sourire" which is a rouge coco shine by Chanel, which is quite similar I think !

    Hey darling, love your lipstick shade, it's gorgeous. It's a shame they didn't have the one you wanted though. Hope you are well x
