MAC STRENGTH COLLECTION

..And I am back with a haul!

All the recent mess cannot stop me to buy from the new Mac collection, especially because there were some lipsticks I didn't have the chance to purchase with the ''Iris Apfel'' collection and have been repromoted in this one.

So thank you one more time to the fantastic Mac counter in House of Fraser in Manchester, all the girls are very helpful in giving you good advices.

This is what I got:






                      Lipsticks in "party parrots" and "absolutely power" £ 14

                      Paint pot in "let's skate" £ 14.50

 Party parrot is a pretty bold shade, it's a orange-pinkish-peachy tone, very rich and bright.




Please do yourself a favour if you wanna wear this: exfoliate your lips first and bleach your teeth.


This lipstick will make yellow teeth stand out even more, there is no way you will get away with it.

I am thinking about wearing this with a full black outfit and just black cat eye eyeliner.

The second one, absolute power, is a deep mat blue based shade.

It really suits my skin tone but I am sure will look stunning even if you've got paler skin.



Isn't it beautiful??

I have been wearing this quite a lot recently, it's quite long lasting, even after a meal will leave a red tint on your lips.
It can dry out your lips a little bit but nothing a good layer of Vaseline cannot solve.






What do ya think?


Last product is "let's skate"; I am not sure the paint pot is from the collection itself, but there was a selection of new shade available out on the same day.



It's a very versatile shade, a frost pink with gold undertone, that can be packed to get more coverage.

I am using this by itself or like a base, as all the pain pots.




In the picture on the left I used a flat synthetic brush, whilst in the one on the right I packed it with my finger.

Can you notice the quite subtle golden sparkle? That is what I love most of this paint pot, added to the fact that it doesn't crease at all.

Did you purchase anything from the collection or are you saving from the next ones?

Anything nice coming out soon?

Share!

WHAT'S GOING ON??

Hello my dears,
finally I am back to my laptop and to this poor little blog that has been unfortunately neglected for too many days.

I really hope you will forgive this naughty blogger for not writing anything at all for such a long time, but if you follow me on twitter you know I have been through few events lately, and sitting down to write a blog post was, I can say, mission impossible.

First of all, finally, at the end of a long long time, my first very own house has been completed, so me, adorable dog and perfect husband moved to our new nest.

Of course the refurbishment is not completed at all, what I got from all this experience is that when a builder says "it's all done", he is basically saying "see you soon for all the rest".

I am not kidding...am I asking too much by expecting a floor in the living room?

Anyway, hundreds or maybe thousands of boxes have been packed and unpacked, so my question is: "how the hell I am still surrounded by all this mess after 3 weeks?"








I must admit that is all my fault, I should have asked for some help from family or friends, I really cannot do it all by myself...and this brings me to the second "relevant fact" of this post.

I think I may, once again, let a picture unveil the big secret:





No, I didn't eat a watermelon.

My "secret" is now 35 weeks and I can say I feel great and so far, everything has been under control.

Sickness is basically constant but I know how to control it now, that's probably why I didn't put a lot of weight on.

I really hope this baby is smart like the mum and doesn't decide to join us before the terms because, matter of fact, we still don't have a carrycot, a cot bed, a sorted wardrobe, not even one single nappy and adorable dog has already said he is not gonna share his bed with him.

I am still in work at the moment (call me perfect employer please) but thanks God is my last week.

Hopefully I will be able to talk to you much more now, I have been to a couple of events I cannot wait to tell you about and there are some things I bought I wanna show you.

You don't have to worry about me harassing you with a time line full of baby's pictures and mother's advices, I hate all my friends that do this and I am not gonna do the same.

I will keep on posting about make up, clothes, places and of course Pugs!

Now it's time to go to bed, see you soon!
