I'm back guys.. I'm sorry for my absence to the blog, theres been some life dramas that have had to have my attention over the start of November but its okay because I'm back to blogging with some great pieces to show you guys! So, let's crack on..
Christmas time is fast approaching and if you're a makeup junkie like myself, you know that means a hell of a lot of Limited Edition christmas collections.. And minus bank balances.. But its christmas right?! We all deserve a treat and I may have purchased a few over the last few weeks.
This was one of the first (and definitly not the last) purchases and you all know it had to be from MAC. Every time something from MAC that is Limited Edition comes out, it's normally gone before you can even get on to the website and decide what shade of lipstick you want. This time it seemed a litte different as quite a few items were still available online even after a few days, so this is the only time i'll allow you to stop reading this post and head on over to the MAC website. Only this once though..
The bag is the cutest little sparkly makeup bag and it's has a good depth for all you make up essentails to fit in, so it will probably end up in my handbag as it's perfect handbag size.
I've had a lipstick before (obviously) but this is the first lip pencil and lipglass I've ever had from MAC and I'm completly converted! All three of the items are incredibly pigmented, even though the lipstick is a Lusture and it's supposed to have a sheer finish, there is still good pigmentation coming from it. My favourite out of the three has to be the lipglass as they colour is just perfect for me and it gives me a true juicy nude lip. I know that the trio doesn't look like they will mesh well, but the different tones make it quite a universal trio.
I really love the attention to detail on this collection, including the box it comes in. Yes, I'm one of those weirdos that likes to keep all the pieces of the packaging! I cant help it, it makes eveything look pretty and you can't deny that you find it hard throwing away that cardboard box..
For £32, this bag is really a bargain. If you think, a MAC lipstick is £15.50 for a permanent collection one, around £14.50 for a lipglass and £12.50 for a lip pencil so you're already saving £10.50 with a makeup bag on top. Like every other girl, I love a baragin so this makes me so happy and my bank can justify the spend.
Have any of you guys had anything from the MAC Heirloom Collection? Watch this space as theres a little more from the collection coming on Pretty Chit Chat soon.. Yay to Christmas!
