A quick summary of the products in order of how much I like them so far:

Mineralize Blush in Love Thing
A gorgeous shimmery deep plum pink. Very pigmented.

Mineralize Skinfinish in Gold Deposit
Beautiful shimmery bronzey gold, again very pigmented.

Satin Lipstick in Myth
Very creamy pinky nude. Well pigmented.

Dazzleglass Creme in Passing Fancy
Sparkly frosted Barbie pink. Very sheer but buildable. Nice over the Myth lipstick.

So there you go! Please leave a comment if you have any of these products and let me know what you think. Or if you have any recommendations to further expand my new MAC collection.

Purple and Pink Glittery Eye and Nude Lip


This is a pink, purple and glittery eye look I created with my Elf 32 eyeshadow palette (in the close up picture above of the shadows, the colours I used were all the bottom four and the third one in from the left on the row above). The glitter is Barry M Fine Glitter Dust No4.

My lips are Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in Nude Delight No 700 and a lipgloss I got from Primark called Opia Plumping Lip Gloss.

Hope you like it!

Hey guys

I went to Double Take Studios in Manchester yesterday, I had bought a makeover and photoshoot there as an early birthday present for my sister.

I bought this from the Buy a Gift website. It was a really fun day and the staff were lovely. I would definitely recommend it.

We each received a mini facial, a hand massage and then got our hair and make up done, we could choose the look we wanted or leave it up to the make up artist. I asked for a pink, purple and black eye look, I fancied something a bit out there!

Then we had some photos taken together (the studios had several set pieces for us to "pose" in front of), and then we each had our own individual photos taken. We were also asked to take three outfits each and had several photos taken in each outfit.

Check out some of the photos I took myself below!

I'm not sure of all the make up they used but I know the lipstick was Myth by Mac and I'm pretty sure the bright pink eyeshadow was from one of the Sleek palettes.

And if you recommended 15 friends, you received some free goodies, see photo below!

Festive Nail Varnish - Rimmel 60 seconds in 610 Pompous

Tropical Eye Look

Hey guys

Here are some pictures from a Tropical Eye Look I created using my Front Cover palette.

I used NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk as a base, then Magic Banana (matte yellow) all over lid, Citronella Crush (lime green) on the inner half of lid, Mermaid (turquoise) on the outer corner and blended all together. Then used Baltic Sea (aqua) on the lower lash line.

Hope you like!
