New in Beauty, Body & Skincare



I've not really been on a makeup spree since my trip to Sydney earlier in the year and with the temptation of sales+joint shopping sprees it seemed like the perfect excuse to get a lil' spendy. Today I thought I'd show you a few of the things I've either bought or been sent recently. This isn't all of it though because I didn't fancy writing an essay. Keep an eye out for a beauty haul video soon to see the rest...

Mac Eyeshadows in Haux and Cranberry-My logic: I'll cull my Mac eyeshadow palette. *buys two more eyeshadow colours*. Said cull still hasn't happened, I'm just not sure what to do with the eyeshadow pans I no longer want. These colours though I have a lot of time for. Cranberry is one of those shades I've always been a bit scared of but I'm not sure why. I wore it out the other day and it didn't have the supposed pink-eye effect. In fact, I may have liked it. Haux isn't a colour I have worn yet but it pairs nicely with Misty Rock from By Terry so I have high hopes.

Mac Matte Lipstick in Men Love Mystery*-I have a bit of a thing for purple lipsticks at the moment. I toyed with Mac's Heroine shade a couple of years back but ended up parting with it. I totally regret that decision now. Anyway, Mac describe this as a lavender violet. It's actually quite a deep colour so it doesn't look too pastel-like on the lips which I love. It's also not as intense as Heroine so if you're intimidated by purple lipsticks, this one would be a good starting point. 

The Comforter Bubble Bar, Lush-I have picked this up so many times in Lush and put it back, largely because I felt like it seemed expensive. The price is justified though because this lasts ages. Its scent reminds me of lollies and raspberry jelly. Plus as an added bonus it tints the bath water pink. What more could you want?

Mac Blush in Mocha-Until now there's only been one Mac blush in my collection so I decided to grab another one when Emily and I did our lil' YouShop order. Mocha is described as a soft plum pink. It's quite different to my other blush colours. This blush has a matte finish which I love and it's such a stunning colour to rock in Winter.


Mac Dazzleshadows in Let's Boogie, Try Me On & She Sparkles*-These shades are all a part of Mac's Le Disko collection which I believe is on counter now/soon. Another thing to note is that these shadows are all limited edition so if they're something you're after I suggest you track them down asap. I swatched these and of all the colours, Let's Boogie, the black with sparkles is the only colour I can't see myself reaching for. She Sparkles, the light grey with silver sparkles is my favourite but Try Me On is beautiful as well. These shadows definitely aren't for the faint-hearted but if you want to up the shimmer or create a really fun eyeshadow look then you should check these out.

The Body Shop Vitamin C Glow Boosting Moisturiser*-TBS are on fire with their new launches at the moment. The latest is their Glow Boosting Moisturiser and Glow Enhancer, the latter works more like a primer. This new moisturiser is lightweight, yet so hydrating. My skin's been quite dry lately (thanks Winter) and this is really helping to combat that. 

Mac Cremesheen Lipglass in Softly Lit*-This is a repromoted, limited edition gloss which came out in a Christmas collection a couple of years back and I think it's now coming out as part of the Cremesheen Pearl collection. I'll admit I'm not much of a gloss person but they are nice to layer over lipsticks that are more matte. Softly Lit is one of those colours that could be used to amp up a peachy nude or any nude really for a bit more sheen. This one will be perfect in Summer when the whole lipgloss+hair situation is less of a reality.
