Eyes on MAC – new eye palettes

Eyeshadow is probably one of the least-used items in my makeup collection, but one thing I just love, all the same! I have TONS of them. And lots of them are MAC - they are the best, right? When I do eyeshadow, I tend to go for one of two or three different looks - a smokey eye, a glittery cream, or a bold, bright colour. I adore greens and blues, and the new MAC Eyes x 9 Palette in Tropic Cool Times Nine is perfect for me. The nine … [Read more...]

Spellbinder Shadows from MAC

MAC's new Spellbinder eyehadows are, wait for it, magnetically charged! The formula is amazing - none of this shadow will fall out of the pot - or off your eyelids! Each shadow contains black, ionised pigments, which are "magnetically charged, fusing the loose powder together, so it magically maintains its dimension" - that's what MAC say. I actually thought they were cream shadows, they are that soft! What a fantastic beauty innovation these … [Read more...]

MAC NEW Liptensity Lipstick

MAC launched a new lipstick yesterday which promises to be THE lipstick to have this autumn. And there are LOADS of colours to choose from. MAC Liptensity pushes the boundaries of colour, say the brand, thanks to the expertise of Tetrachromat Maureen Seaberg, who has the genetic ability to see up to 100 million hues, imperceptible to the average naked eye. WOW! Who even knew this was a thing? Can you imagine how amazingly colourful her life … [Read more...]

Future MAC

I've been playing around with the fabulously futuristic Future MAC collection for a week or so - and I love it.  It's the next generation of hyper-luminous Mineralize products for eyes, lips and skin, and has some really fab, quirky pieces, and some very wearable, lovely products. My absolute favourite product of all has to be the Mineralize Skinfinish Powder in Other Earthly (£24), a gorgeous trio of powders in one pan. Silver, metallic rose … [Read more...]

New York designer Zac Posen, known for his timeless, yet dazzling designs, has collaborated with MAC on a collection that is stylish and simple, with brilliant pops of colour. It's like a modern take on a retro trend - bright bold lips, and a slick of … [Read more...]

NEW M.A.C Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation

I've been deliberating over what foundation to use on my wedding day for months now. I am doing my own makeup, and whilst I want some coverage, I don't want to wear much more than my usual base. Bridal makeup is a key part of any bride-to-be's planning. So many brides choose makeup artists, and completely change their look for the day, which seems, well, just a wee bit odd. Why would you want to look different on the biggest day of your life. … [Read more...]
