Mac Additions!

Saturday was such an important day for me as it was student loan day, and meant that my wages have become disposable income again. I'm no longer paying off a holiday or saving up spending money (although we are looking at going to NYC next year) and really the only thing I have to pay for from now is car insurance, which I already have money in my savings account for ! So to celebrate I took a little trip to the Mac counter (and Boots, and YSL but lets concentrate on Mac for now).

I have to say these little purchases have gotten me so excited for winter autumn time! This was actually my first red lipstick purchase of the year and you know that December isn't far off when that happens. The shade is called Lady Danger and is an orange toned red, but pretty close to a classic red. At first I wasn't sure whether or not this kind of colour would suit me, but now that I've worn it a few times I don't even care anymore because its so darn pretty! Everyone knows that the staying power of a Mac lippy is unbeatable, and it even annoys me sometimes that I have to scrub at my lips before bed to get it off! 

I also bought an Eye Shadow in Cranberry Frost, which is such a gorgeous shade that again I don't even care if it suits me or not! I'm actually thinking about buying a Mac Pro Palette and depotting my eyeshadows into it, but I don't quite have enough to fill a whole palette yet, so I might wait for a bit until I do! I actually can't get over how nice this lovely aubergine colour is, and there's nothing like a good Christmassy name to make me want to purchase it! It's also fantastically pigmented, but what else would you expect from a Mac eyeshadow ?

What do you guys think of the shades I have chosen?


  1. Im in love with the eyeshadow. I have blue eyes so love anything gold, bronze and glittery! x
