So, it happened, again. I live across the road from a Debenhams, and it just calls out for bad things to happen to my bank account. Although, the main reason I have been spending in MAC is because I have been saving money that I would’ve spent on little things – for example, I have taken lunch to uni with me for the last two weeks. That has saved me at least £50!
I also ended up having a sneaky trip to Krispy Kreme with Glen (who you can find at lifeofglen.wordpress.com) as they have new Halloween doughnuts and 20% student discount! I would show you what they looked like, but they’re pretty squished from being in my bag!
In MAC, I purchased the 4 piece palette (£6.50) and an eyeshadow in the shade Fig 1 (£10 in pan, £12.50 in a container). One thing I don’t understand about MAC Palettes is that they sell the 2 piece and 4 piece palettes, both for £6.50 each, although they’re different sizes. Oh well!
Here is the 4 piece palette, I am now starting to get into wearing eyeshadows – as in the past, I have only gone for basic nude shades. So I’m now at the point of time in my life, that I need to spice up my make up collection (Seriously, the only eyeshadows I own is the MUA palette (which is a dupe for the Urban Decay Naked Palette) and a very old Ruby & Millie 4 piece palette).
These MAC Palettes are a brilliant idea – you can buy them with eyeshadows already in them for a reduced price, but this way you can choose the shades that you really want, depot your old favourite eyeshadows (they don’t have to be from mac – just depot and put a magnet on the bottom of them) and combine your own selection.
I decided to go for the shade ‘Fig 1’, as I have tested ‘Cranberry’ and was greatly surprised that darker tones do suit me! So, I have decided to be a bit more adventurous and thought a purple shade would look perfect for a softer smokey eye (as I am very pale).
Here is Fig 1 in the palette, I would depot ‘Cranberry’ but I quite like the packaging that it is in – so I’m too attached to it, at the moment. I decided to go for a small palette for now, as I’m not planning on buying a huge amount of eyeshadows and this will fit nicely in my handbags – if need be!
That is all that I have for you all today – just thought I would quickly share my cheeky, unexpected purchase with you.
Throw me a comment if you have any recommendations, or blog posts that you would like to see! I will be putting up swatches very soon (when the light is a bit better).
