New in from Mac: Summer '16



By now you should all know I do love a good MAC product. Their lipsticks in particular are absolute staples in my makeup bag, along with their pencil liners and paint pots. It's been a while since I've really been won over by a MAC collection but lately they've been on top of their game so I had to make a couple of splurges. It's also mandatory to let you know about some of their new, awesome, treat yo'self worthy things too. Let's be real...

Ellie Goulding Lipstick, limited edition-Before we start, well done MAC for giving Ellie a collection. Florence Welch totally deserves one now as well. Anyway, the Ellie Goulding collection has been one of my favourites from MAC recently. It consisted of several lip products, lustre drops, which I think only ever come out in limited collections, face powders and some stunning cream palettes. By the time I found a counter with this collection, most of the products had sold out but I couldn't resist the Without Your Love lipstick. It's described as a warm, seashell pink and Temptalia notes it's a lighter, less neon version of Flamingo. I love it, and being a cremesheen it's so comfortable on the lips.

 Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolours*-Liquid lipsticks are all the rage at the moment and it seems like every beauty brand is releasing one. These ones are still some of my favourites though, and part of that is down to their applicator. I'm not sure if it's the angular tip but it makes these so much easier to slick on and not create a Miranda Sings-esque situation. I was sent the shades Lady Be Good and Tailored To Tease. Lady Be Good has Kylie Jenner vibes about it. If you're paler consider pairing this with a pinkier nude to make it more flattering, but otherwise I love this one. Tailored To Tease is a vibrant, reddy-fuschia. Despite being matte, they feel velvety on the lips and the colour sticks around.

Foiled Shadow in Joy Toy, limited edition-This eyeshadow was from the Faerie Whispers collection which was released about a month back. I love this stunning, champagne-copper hue. It's such a typical 'Sophie' colour but it's absolutely beautiful. This colour's really eye brightening and I find myself reaching for it most days. I'm that smitten with it.
