Mini Sugarpill Haul with Swatches

A while ago Sugarpill had an anniversary sale so I finally indulged in the Burning Heart palette some eyelashes (although still waiting on another couple of pairs as they ended up out of stock) and Asylum the famous loose red eyeshadow!

Yesterday my parcel finally arrived :)

Super sweet packaged in pink tissue, with a sparkly Sugarpill sticker and a sample of Goldilux loose eyeshadow.

Let's start with Burning Heart. I love the packaging. It looks fab and it's nice and sturdy so not likely to get battered in the bottom of a makeup bag any time soon.

The colours are incredible. All four are matte and have insane colour payoff.

All colours are swatched without a primer or base (imagine how intense they will be when using one!)

L-R Buttercupcake, Flamepoint, Love+ and Poison Plum
Next we move onto a loose eyeshadow called Asylum. It's a beautiful, sparkly red. Probably not a necessity to everyone but it's just beautiful, I couldn't resist.

Left: Asylum with no base      Right: Asylum onto of NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk
Finally are the two pairs of eyelashes which are breathtaking. One pair are long and purple, the other thick, spikey and black.

I cannot wait to play around with all of my goodies

Marcel Wanders for Mac 2 - Inez Lipstick

Another fab collaboration between Mac and Marcel Wanders.
The collection is full of beautiful products, in gorgeous packaging.

I fell in love with one of the lipsticks called Inez, a light, metallic plum colour.
As soon as the collection went up on the website I had to make it mine and good job too as it was the first item in the collection to sell out.

Now time to swoon over the packaging and lipstick in all of its glory

The Marcel Wanders is available exclusively at Mac Online now.

Mac Shop Lipsticks - Watch Me Simmer and Quick Sizzle

I picked up a couple of the lipsticks from Selfridges as they had them exclusively for a couple of weeks before they were released everywhere else this week.

The packaging is super cute and colourful, but unfortunately it's just a sleeve that goes on top of the regular black box, with the lipstick housed in the standard Mac black tube.

The two I picked were Watch Me Simmer and Quick Sizzle.

Watch Me Simmer is a Matte finish bright pink. I think of it as a matte Girl About Town which is what drew me towards it.

Quick Sizzle is an amazingly bright pink coral colour with an amplified finish. It reminds me of Viva Glam Nicki, except her coral sister.

Here are some comparisons to other Mac lip products in my collections to help you see if you need them in your lifes too.

L-R: Watch Me Simmer, Vegas Volt, Toxic Tale, Hibiscus, Ever Hip

L-R: Quick Sizzle, Girl About Town, Petals and Peacocks, Lustering, Hot House l/g

The Mac Shop, Mac Cook collections are now available at all Mac locations and online as well as in certain department stores.
