New In | M.A.C, Real Techniques


Aside from a mountain of chocolate, I was fortunate to receive some beauty gifts this Christmas. I also picked up the Real Techniques Travel Essential Brushes and MAC Prolongwear Eyeshadow in Uninterrupted. The domed shadow brush will be absolutely perfect for applying cream eyeshadow. Although Uninterrupted, a medium camel brown, isn't that impressive in the pan, once blended on the eyelids it adds a warm tone that makes blue eyes pop.

A few more MAC goodies made their way into my makeup stash - MAC Woodwinked, a medium golden bronze eyeshadow, and three lip products. The MAC lipliner in Soar makes for the perfect rosy-brown 90's lip. I also received 2 stand-out lipsticks - MAC Diva and MAC Lady Danger. Katherine has found a great drugstore dupe for Diva (read more here), and the crimson shade is great for the colder months. I've since recommended it to 2 friends!

I also received a small travel sized version of Alien by Thierry Mugler, which has some of my favourite notes like vanilla, jasmine and amber. Read more about my favourite fragrances and advice on how to find a signature scent here.
