Selfridges Haul with MAC & Charlotte Tilbury

Before Christmas I had a little Selfridges splurge and with everything happening in December sadly my haul has been sitting in my scheduled posts for some time SOOOOOOO I figured I'd start January off the right way with showing you all the lovely bits I purchased!

I know I'm not alone when I say I get drawn to any warm brown colour that can go on my eyelids. Having brown eyes, coppers and browns were always a go to for me growing up and it's not been something I can shake. I have seen so many bloggers talk about the CT colour chameleon eyeshadow pencils and the rock 'N' kohl pencils that it was high time I tried them for myself. As you can see from the swatches above the colour chameleon eyeshadow pencil in 'dark pearl' is absolutely gorgeous. It blends effortlessly and It can be worn as a eyeliner pencil, the whole lid coloured or filled and smudged for a softer look. I'm still playing around with eyeshadow primers so when I find the one that makes it last the longest I'll edit this here but for the most part it lasts maybe 3/4 of my 12 hr shift which isn't too bad. The rock 'N' kohl eyeliner sadly doesn't rock my world as much as it does other bloggers, while I agree it doesn't drag on the lid and it's creamy texture is perfect for application, it never seems to stay put. Is there a technique I don't know about or am I just expecting a lot out of a pencil? Either way, I do like how it applies but I just wished it lasted longer.

I posted a picture on Instagram that sparked several conversations about what your favourite MAC Lipstick shades were and there were some amazing shades recommended that I'd never even knew existed but I did come home with 3 and I love each and everyone. I'll start with Pink Pigeon as it's bright pinkness does blend in with a lot of bright pink lipsticks I already have but I had looked and candy yum yum and despite its iconic bright florescentness I swatched pink pigeon beside it and I preferred it as I knew I'd wear it more. Then I'd have to say it was violetta which is this gorgeous dark electric purple that is just gorgeous. It's more pinky then Milani - Sangria which is my usual go to vamp purple colour and I am in love with this shade! Lastly, my favourite of the 3 is snob. I'm not really a pastel kinda girl but there is something about this colour. I have had so many compliments while wearing it, it's become my everyday go to shade lately. This will definitely be a repurchase once it runs out.

Here are the 3 colours on my lips, and a makeup look below using the new eyeshadows plum dressing and nocturnelle with the rock 'n' kohl eyeliner for this pinky purply smokey look. 

I always reply to all my comments & will always return the favor.

  14. Last year I was deciding between MAC's Angel and MAC Snob - ended up with Angel but I should have opted for Snob as the frost finish of Angel doesn't translate well on my lips. :/ Oh and thank goodness they made Pink Pigeon Permanent. :-)
