MAC Winnings!!!

So, last month I won a giveaway!!  And not just any giveaway, but an AMAZING one, courtesy of the lovely Lauren from Lauren's Dressing Room!! The giveaway was to celebrate her blog’s anniversary and also reaching 1000 followers and the prize was incredible (one of the best I’ve seen on a blog!).

My prize was – a MAC eyeshadow, blusher and lipstick of my choice!!!! How amazing!  I was literally SO over the moon when I found out I won, I walked around with the biggest, constant grin on my face for the following week!

I choose Nylon eyeshadow, Pinch O Peach blush and Pretty Please lipstick and I adore what I chose. 

Nylon is my favourite MAC eyeshadow ever – I wear it every single day.  I use it all over my lid and up to my brow bone to highlight.  The colour is beautiful, a shimmery, golden shade.  I could not live without this in my makeup regime!

Pinch O’ Peach is a really pretty blush, but I really don’t see the peach in it, haha!  Regardless I still love it and I’ve been wearing it with a sweep of bronzer all week.  Its a sheertone blush but still nicely pigmented so I can see this lasting me ages.

Pretty Please.  I honestly don’t have a lip colour like this in my whole collection so its great to try something different.  I’d describe this as a pink pearl shimmer, which looks gorgeous over other lip colours as it adds a shimmery gleam.  On its own its slightly pale, but pretty and very unique!  My Mum and Dad both commented on my makeup when I wore this, they both really like it!  Not too sure what’d it look like on people with slightly darker skin, so if you own this then let me know!  One thing is because it is so pale – it really emphasizes any imperfections on the lips (e.g dry skin, picked skin etc).  It also applies quite unevenly but I don’t mind too much.

I would like to say a humungous thank you to Lauren, for my pressies and for being so generous!  You can visit her blog HERE

  9. Aww I'm so jealous of you :) Have you tried MAC Ricepaper eyeshadow? I quite like it and would like to try Nylon - I hear the two shades are similar. Unfortunately, the nearest MAC store (counter) is located 400 miles away from me so I really can't go there too often! I don't own many MAC lipsticks, but Pretty Please is one of the lipsticks I'm considering to purchase next, especially after your review :)
