Periwinkle, pink, pastels

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. Instead of going with a straight up lilac look, I decided to go with periwinkle and pink to match the tights I wore and to stick with a pastel theme. I think the look turned out really pretty.

Double bold

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. Sometimes wearing both a bold eye look and bold lips can be a bit much, but I don’t really care. I love it!

MAC Wild Cherry collection

For the past three or four years MAC has released a cherry blossom inspired spring collection, and this year’s collection is called Wild Cherry. As you can see, I picked up quite a few items from the collection: I bought the Fix+ in the cherry blossom scent (which is my favourite Fix+ scent), the Extra Dimension Skinfinish in Petallic Metallic, the Glow Play blush in Peaches ‘N’ Dreams, the Love Me lipstick in Sakura Szn, and the Pre + Prime Lip.

Here’s the inside of the Extra Dimension Skinfinish. It’s so pretty, right?! The shade is a shifty gold to pink, which is very pretty, however, I don’t find the formula to be as good as some other Extra Dimension Skinfinishes. This one is a little less pigmented and smooth.

The MAC Glow Play blushes are some of my favourites, and this is the first time they’ve been released in limited edition shades and packaging. This shade is quite similar to the shade Groovy from the permanent line, though a little lighter.

This collection only included Love Me lipsticks, which is a creamy formula. I picked up the more nude shade in the collection, and it’s a very pretty shade (I’m wearing it here and here).

I also got some free gifts with this purchase which I thought I would include in this haul as well. I got two brushes, which is always nice, because MAC brushes are not cheap. These are the 133S Small Cheek brush and the 275S Medium Angled Shading brush.

For once I also wanted to include the free samples I got with this order, because I got a couple of interesting ones. I’ve been wanting to try both the Studio Fix Mattifine 12HR Shine-Control primer and the M·A·CStack mascara. I’ve already used up the mascara, and I loved it. I also received a Lightful C3 Radiant Hydration Skin Renewal Lotion and another Strobe Cream sample in Pinklite.

Beauty Killer 2

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I’m obsessed with this make-up look! I’m wearing the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Beauty Killer 2 palette (which I haven’t hauled yet) on my eyes, and I bought the palette purely for the two purple/indigo shades, and they are just as stunning as I hoped they would be. I also love the warm nude lip.

(Base: primer – Essence Prime + Studio Multi-Action + Protecting primer, foundation – Essence Fresh & Fit foundation (shade: 05 Fresh Porcelaine), concealers – Rimmel The Multi-Tasker concealer (shade: 020 Fair) + NYX Born To Glow radiant concealer (shade: Pale), powders – Essence Brighten Up!
