My little MAC haul!

Hey ladies, So today i finally received my MAC makeup in the post! I was so excited to look at all the colours and swatch them on my hands. Unfortunately i had to carry it around with me at uni first, but i was too impatient to wait until i was home to open it haha. Here is what i got...


I ended up buying three blushes and four eyeshadows for under $130 in Australia! :)


So in the top row we have (L-R): Sheertone shimmer blush in 'Springsheen', Powder Blush in 'Frankly Scarlet' & Sheertone blush in 'Coygirl'.

On the bottom row we have (L-R): Fresh Daisy, Antiqued, Top Knot & Mega Metal eyeshadow in Odalisque.


(L-R): Odalisque, Top Knot, Antiqued, Fresh Daisy
I thought i would do a few close ups on the eyeshadows to show you just how shimmery and gorgeous the colours are! Fresh Daisy has gorgeous detailing with a flower imprinted in the middle. Unfortunately, i don't think these pictures do the eyeshadows justice. But here they are ..
(L-R): Odalisque, Top Knot

(L-R): Antiqued, Fresh Daisy

The eyeshadows are all very pigmented and even just from doing the following swatches, they were hard to get off! Therefore, they will definitely be long-lasting!
(No flash) L-R: Fresh Daisy, Antiqued, Top Knot, Odalisque

(With Flash) Same as above.
I absolutely love the blushes! I bet most of you are thinking that Frankly scarlet is too bright, but i think with a light hand and a bit of blending, it will look amazing. Springsheen is the only shimmery blush out of the three and looks gorgeous on. I can't wait to play with these colours!


(L-R): Frankly Scarlet, Coygirl, Springsheen

(With flash) L-R: Coygirl, Springsheen, Frankly Scarlet

(Without flash) Same as above

So, that is the end of my haul haha. I'm really excited to try all of these products out and will keep you all updated with how i find them. Are there any MAC products you ladies would like to suggest for me to try? I'm in the market for some highlighters and other goodies, so i would love the feedback.  I have also been thinking of doing FOTD posts (Face of the day), to show you all how i use these products. Let me know if you think i should do it :)

Until next time, Jess xoxo

  4. I use MAC NC15 studio sculpt, it's so so good for pale skin and doesn't have a hint of orange. Also, I know a lot of girls who dress vintage SWEAR by the russian red lipstick haha
