Yet more shopping...

:-\ Sorry. I know it looks like all I do is shop these days. This is not true, I swear. And I'll post more looks soon, infact I'll post the make-up I wore shopping below. There you go. But...Ah! The 1st of March finally came around and I was finally able to buy all the things that are good. There were quite a few products I had wanted from the new MAC S/S collections but I cut down my list considerably because I already have lots of make-up. These are my bare minimum, could-not-pass-on items.

Now March is here and I am way happy about it. Later on today, when I head into the counter, I get to wear a Viva Glam shirt for the first time... woo! Anyway, here are some pictures of what I wore and bought on my shopping trip yesterday...




I wore Inglot eyeshadows yesterday to Shop at MAC. Gosh, I'm such a rebel. Huhuhuhhaha. Anyway, a mint green/teal fitted my mood. I also wore Bite of an Apple blush and remembered how much I adore it. I think it should be made permanant. There I said it.


From the Shop MAC & Cook MAC collections I got all four tendertones (yessssssssssssssssssssssss), Florida cremeblend blush (Optimistic Orange was already sold out, woah there!), Call Me Bubbles and Colour Added eyeshadow quads, Quick Sizzle lipstick and Scan-delicious Kissable Lipcolour.

Here is a comparison of MAC Quick Sizzle (top lip) with Illamasqua Atomic (bottom lip). I am in love with the formula of this new MAC matte lipstick. The Illamasqua one is slightly darker in colour and does feel a lot more dry to me, but I still love the blue sheen it has. Overall, glad I've got both lipsticks.

From the Vera collection I already had Flower Fantasy Pearlmatte face powder (which I was given at product update). I bought Industrial Pearlglide and now I wish I'd bought them all!. I also got Butterfly dreams plushglass (who could resist purple with blue glitter, and a plumping effect, too!)

From Chen Man I got Force of Love lipstick and gloss (because I just adored them on the promo photos) and Reflects Blue glitter. 

Sorry, this photo didn't come out so well. It was after dark in yellow lighting. Anyway, I love this combination. (Sorry for the creepy mouth close-up)
 
While I was there I also picked up my current go-to foundation - Prolongwear NC15. I got some scissors for my belt, to make cutting eyelashes down easier and two of the duo-fibre eye blending brushes from the Naturally Collection (one for the belt, one for me).


Can't wait to try out my goodies, hope you're all as excited for Spring as I am,

PS just a little reminder to coloured-haired readers. Boots is having a buy one get one free on Naked haircare again. So I stocked up. Shampoo/Conditioner and two leave in conditioner thingies. Just run out of shampoo so this was a sweet deal for me. I've loved Naked stuff the two times I've used it in the past.

  3. Quick Sizzle looks awesome on you! I kind of wanted Force of Love lipstick, but didn't know it had launched online and by the time I found out, it was too late. Ah well.

  6. Hahaha! Love that you wore Inglot to shop at MAC! Great teal/mint color on the lid! Looks like you picked up at lot of great things! Those powders from the Vera collection look awesome! The Vera collection interested me a lot more than the Shop/Cook collections.

  7. Ahhhh good call on the Naked haircare, I need to look into some colour-friendly shampoos because as it turns out the Directions I've just put on my hair isn't all that longlasting on me. Thanks :D
