My birthday part 2 (MAC lipsticks, temperature rising - Sun dipped bronzer and In the pulse Lipstick)

Ok so part 2 of my little birthday adventure.
I had a clear idea in my mind of the things i did want to purchase but then MAC released so many collections i was like ...... what am i doing ? where am i ? mac overload.

So im a cream-sheen girl and i love amped colour, but i suit very blue toned lipstick. So i tend to stock up on these first before i venture into any other colours as i know these will suit me, Lavender whip is just lush and my favourite. However then Temperature rising came out and of course i wanted, Feel my pulse which i was so lucky to grab one from Selfridges. However the one i and every other woman wanted was Heroine, sadly missed out and my lovely friend even went to Selfridges plus other friends went on a online hunt for me. So girls i love ya and thank you for trying. 
I cant say I'm totally without as my lovely and amazing friend Farhana who does look posts on here with me sometimes, was a gem and found me a Heroine lip pencil. Which you may think is really sad but i think that blended into my lip then Feel my pulse on top will look amazing. 

So the only other item i wanted in the Temperature rising collection was the Pro-longwear bronzer in sun dipped. Which i know was part of the Hey Sailor collection some time back. However this is just even in the picture, glowing like the sun. Its a lovely brown compact with a suede feel that NARS has. 
Now the bronze it self is really pigmented but blends out so well, i needed only a little then used my kabuki to blend this baby into my cheeks. I would say that i wish it was matte, but the shimmer is not so over the top that its too noticeable which is a blessing. I only use one layer very thinly and blended around. So no glitter-ball Tara look.... just yet lol. 
(Sorry the swatch is poor, my flash just loves the glitter, so will replace this with a natural light picture underneath)

So here comes the madness which is me on a lipstick haul of epic magnitude, well to me. 

So first up is - Temperature Rising (LE) - Feel my pulse
Beautiful and defiantly a real favourite of mine. Purple blue based colour.

Creme Cup - Cream-sheen
Iconic colour for every day use, lovely nude pink,
This is defiantly a colour that would suit more a smokey eye or one with a heavy pop of colour to add balance.

Speak Louder - Cream-sheen
Again i literally picked all the blue based pinks to add to my collection and this is one I've yet to use but its like my amped colours i love.
This would be a more half and half colour well matched with a balanced not to heavy eye look.

Speed Dial - Cream sheen
Again this is slightly lighter the Speak Louder but still a beautiful pink that i can match up well depending on my look for the day. I would use this more for a day look and neutral.

Now i also bought Hot Gossip and Lickable to add to my collection plus the Heroine pencil my friends kindly bought me. So i will upload them with swatches of those and these colours actually on my lips and not my hand so you can see how they transfer onto the lip. Giving a better indication of how they swatch to look. I have a frame that can fit the swatch, lip swatch and colour in one grid so i will do an in depth showing of them plus looks and colour i would wear them with.

What MAC lipsticks do you love ? 


  1. Gorgeous lippies lovely! I love Temperature Rising and Speed Dial, though I dont own them...I have so many lippies that I hardly wear, I cant justify it at the moment!
