Collective beauty haul

I finally picked up some items i really wanted, Sephora had 25% off and i went to MAC to B2M for 2 lipsticks. I originally went to pick up Impassioned (perfect for summer, bright and fun) and Craving (the most awesome cherry colour)  but they were out of stock :-( But i am quite happy with the shades i picked up, very wearable.

  • Ombres Perlées de Chanel Eyeshadow Palette. Just like every beauty blogger has been raving, this palette is amazing and the shadows are buttery to the touch. (I am SO late on this one, but it's worth it, can you expect something bad from Chanel? NO!)
  • MAC Shy Girl. If you are looking for a great peachy nude, not too nude either, this is the one to get. Also if you missed on Jazzed that came out last summer, Shy girl is pretty similar on the lips.
  • MAC Lovelorn. For me this is Angel's wearable sister as angel is too baby pink on me and too pigmented, this is a lustre and more wearable.
  • MUFE waterproof cream eyeshadow in #18 mauve. I saw Lisa Eldrige trying it out on one of her latest videos and i really liked the colour on her so i picked it up. It is lovely and long wearing, however when Lisa applies it it's way more pigmented. I apply it with my fingers and i have to quite pack it on to have an intense colour payoff. I want to get YSL in grey amethyst now, i am kind of obsssed with lillac/grey cream eyeshadows!
  • Essie sole matte. Awesome vampy colour, glossy and sexy.

Swatches from left to right: MUFE cream eyeshadow #18 mauve, MAC shygirl, MAC lovelorn.

Here is Lisa Eldrige's video in question.

Also, one loathe. I got a mini OPI nail polish fromt the Katy Perry collection in "not like the movies", the colour after 2 coats is still not opaque and it's too 90s for my taste. I tolerate it under some lights, under some others i dislike it haha!. I think it looks a bit dirty too and weird. It would look better on darker skintones i think.

Are you in love with purplish/grey eyeshadows too lately?


  1. I love Shy Girl and really want Impassioned too! x xx

  2. Hi girl! I just found your blog and I love it! I live in Athens too, woohoo!!!

    I made a visit to Mac last week (the 25% sales thing always gets me), I was between Impassioned and Vegas Volt- ended up with the latter... Now I must get Impassioned before summer arrives ;)

  8. Nice blog. nice beauty tips.
    check out my fashion blog,
    if you like it follow me, I will do the same:)

  9. I have to agree about the Katy Perry collection - i got the mini's and as much as i luuurrrve the colour of the 2 glitter ones, they weren't as top quality as i would've thought - it must be the fact that the glitter is so chunky, therefore can barely brush on my nails.
    And 'not like the movies' is a bit of a disappointment for me too - i have a revlon nail polish in practically the same colour and one coat does a better job than this one. Normally OPI doesn't let me down, but the fancy 'lets-add-this-to-the-formula' polishes do :(

  10. I don't like purple/greyish nail polish at all!

  11. The cream shadow looks so pretty in the swatch. It's a shame it's not as pigmented as you expected =/

  12. my leather jacket is from the brand- Chronicles of Never and i looked .. you can't buy it online besides this ridiculously priced japanese store :( my best bet would be to contact them through their site directly if you're interested :) thanks for your comment dearest! xx
