On my recent trip to Stockholm, I bought a couple of things from the MAC shop. I first got into MAC products when I went to Paris a couple of years ago and the lady tried a few of their items on me. The Sephora item I bought was from the shop in Luxembourg.
I bought 4 eyeshadows to make a quad palette. Unfortunately, the lady did not give me the packaging that the colours came in, so I have no idea what the shades are called. All I can say is that whatever shades they are, I really like them. This is my first time trying MAC eyeshadows and I have to say that I am impressed and will be buying more.
I am also going through a phase of trying coloured lips and nude eyes, so I bought a couple of lipsticks from the shop as well. I’m not usually a lipstick kinda gal. Before this I only owned 2 lipsticks. I tended to stick more to lip glosses because I used to think that bright colours on my lips just highlighted the fact that my lips are full and I didn’t like them. However, I’m slowly accepting that they’re actually a pretty nice set of lips and I just need to find the right colours to suit them.

I also bought this lovely berry coloured lipstick from Sephora. It’s more of a purple pink in real life but for some reason it did not photograph that way. I love it. It smells lovely too. It smells like berries. It doesn’t have a name but it is shade 21 from the long-lasting colour range.
Also from the MAC shop, I picked up this lovely blush. I tend to stick to neutral blush colours because I don’t like too much colour on my cheeks and this colour is perfect! I can wear it during the day or at night and it goes with any colour eyes or lips I choose to wear.
The last item I picked up from the MAC shop was the fix+. I’ve heard good things about it, so i thought I’d give it a try. I know you can use hairspray to do the same job. I have sensitive skin, somehow I don’t think hairspray on my face would be such a good idea.
