So the MCRBC gang had a mega Saturday night out this weekend and I don’t think that I was the only one feeling a little worse for wear on Sunday
I don’t know about you but once I’m feeling alive again (usually after a gallon of tea) my skin is always lack luster, more oily and just feels grotty.
So when I saw the Skyn Iceland Hangover Kit on Cult Beauty last week I thought that it might just come in handy for my Sunday recovery session.
Skyn Iceland – Skin Hangover Kit
These represent our beauty dreams that will hopefully all come true in 2016 (and the image represents the scariest element of The Muppet’s Christmas Carol that I’d prefer not to focus on right now as I’m home alone…)
Continuing our festive theme, we cover our current ‘Can’t Live Without’ faves…
For December, we thought we would try something a little bit different than a straight forward review and it being the festive season, we took inspiration from Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol to bring you our Make Up of Christmas Past, Present & Future…
I love lipstick, Love.
Lipstick has been an icon of female empowerment for as long as I’ve had memories. It was invented about 5000 years ago (I’m not THAT old). The Egyptians wore it (slightly deadly… Let’s skip past that), Queen Elizabeth in the 16th century made bright lips infamous in England and by the end of the 19th century Guerlain began to manufacture lipstick.
The new MAC offering is an awesome red affair. Consisting of 4 lipsticks, 3 eye shadows, 3 casual colours, 3 cremesheen glasses, 1 dazzleglass, 3 nail lacquers and a beauty powder. Wow. The standout items for us are the lipsticks, casual colours and eye shadows. We picked up a couple of items when the collection launched at the end of Jan which you may have already seen @mcrbeautyclub. On the left is the casual colour in Out For Fun and the lipstick is Toxic Tale in a satin finish.The lipstick is creamy, bright and full colour of an orangey-red tone. The casual colour which can be used on cheeks and lips is lightweight and blendable. However, MAC seem to have lost some of the product in the repackaging, in 2014 we got 13ml and in 2015 we get 2.5ml for the same price?! Incredible. The eye shadow in Red Alert is in a velux pearl finish, it’s a shimmery red-brown mid tone. It’s full colour and I didn’t experience any drop when applied. It’s blendable and brown enough to wear without eyeliner, unlike MAC’s Cranberry which I look slightly ill if I skip the eyelining step!
The full collection is in stores and online now.
