A Modest Haul & My First MAC Palette


I just popped into town as I wanted to check out the La Senza sale, which didn't have a lot really, I managed to get two of the things I wanted, which were both half price, a Grumpy but Gorgeous pyjama set reduced to £7.50 and a black silky chemise, which was down to a fiver. 

I then popped in to Boots on the off chance they had the L'Oreal colour sensation lipsticks, I was doubtful as it was a smaller one compared the one opposite where I work, and they haven't had them in. However, to my surprise, they had them. So finally, all be it a little late, I present Ambre Rose...

I then went in to Superdrug with intent to just browse and buy a drink, but I started looking at the Barry M stuff, and I've been debating over whether to get the 129 lip paint (the lilac one if you didn't know) for months. I finally gave in and bought it, however It comes out really, really lilac on my lips, and from some of the swatches I've seen on some of the other ladies blogs, it is a lot more toned down on others, so any tips on what I can team it with?? I also picked up the lip wand in number 4, I had to get it just for the smell, it's gorgeous! It's a milky pink colour and it smells like strawberry yoghurt or the strawberry body lotion from the Body Shop.

Next on to the MAC bits, I got Well Dressed blush, I've recently got into wearing blush, as I never bothered before, and I thought Well Dressed would be a good starter. I've been using it sparingly on the apples of my cheeks, and it's lovely, gives me a nice healthy glow. I also got two eye shadows, which I have already de-potted, Beauty Marked (left) and Black Tied (right), I wasn't expecting Beauty Marked to be so black, but I'm sure I'll still be able to make it work! 

Buying two eyeshadows leads me on to my first finished palette which I only had two slots to fill, so yay! I was never going to start depotting, buy then all the eyeshadows started taking up a hell of a lot of room in my make up drawer, so it makes more sense for me to have them all in a palette. So here it is, in all its glory...

Top row (L-R) Dazzlelight, Grand Entrance (from the Love That Look collection and one of my very favourites) Tempting, Sable, Beauty Marked
Middle row (L-R) Retrospeck, Woodwinked, Honey Lust, Style Snob, Top Knot
Bottom row (L-R) All That Glitters, Satin Taupe, Twinks, Smoke & Diamonds, Black Tied
So pretty :)
