First MAC Eyeshadows!

Hello everyone I hope you are all having a nice Friday. I recently went on holiday and bought myself a cheeky MAC palette and two eyeshadows! I thought I would share my excitement with you!

I have already got the warm neutral palette, but I missed out on the whole customisation of colours, so I decided I would buy a palette and gradually fill it up!

L-R Patina, Copperplate

Before purchasing these shadows I read many blogposts and watched many videos on people's favourites and I ended up deciding on these two shades! 

Patina is described on the MAC website as a taupe brown with golden shimmer, and this is spot on. This shadow is a frost and looks beautiful all over the lid.

Copperplate is described as a muted mid tone grey, and again this is exactly right. This shadow is a matte2 which means its matte but is really creamy. This looks lovely in the crease with patina all over the lid.

I'm so happy with the shadows I picked out and they seems amazing so far! If anyone has any recommendations for shadows I should add to my palette, let me know!

Thankyou for reading!

Deadly Sins of Beauty ❤️

I know this tag has been going around the internet for the longest time and I'm almost definitely the last person to do this but imma do it anyway!

GREED: What is your most inexpensive beauty item? What is your most expensive?

My least expensive beauty item is a MUA blush in the shade 'Bon Bon', these are only £1 and are great quality! My most expensive beauty item is my MAC warm neutrals palette, this was....£65 (gulp) which is crazy money but is beautiful and was worth every penny!

WRATH: What beauty product do you have a love/hate relationship with? 

I would say the Collection eyeshadow pencil, when I first got this it was very creamy and easy to apply, and now it seems to have gotten really dry and flaky. I haven't had it long enough for it to have expired so I'm not too sure what's going on! I love the colour though which makes it so annoying!

GLUTTONY: What are your most delicious beauty products?

I would have to say the Tanya Burr lipglosses! I have 'Berry Picking' and 'Picnic in the Park' here, they are so beautiful and smell like strawberry laces! 

SLOTH: What beauty product do you neglect due to laziness?

I would have to say eyeliner in general, I always forget about it or when it try to apply it, it goes wrong! I love the way it looks when I do apply it though!

PRIDE: What beauty product gives you the most self confidence?

I would say mascara, when I first read the questions I immediately thought of the obvious one, foundation/concealer but I never feel right when I don't wear mascara! I just feel it makes me look awake and alive! I love the Benefit They're Real one.

Thankyou for reading! I'm unable to post next Friday as I am away on holiday but I will be able to write the Friday after! Hope everyone has a lovely weekend :)
