New additions to my MAC Palette: Contrast, Expensive Pink, Coppering, Lucky Green, Espresso and Satin Taupe


If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, you will know that I have been buying lots of new MAC eye shadows. I really wanted to fill my palette as soon as possible, so I took advantage of the Debenhams 10% off deal and bagged myself over 1500 points on my Beauty Card too :) YAY! The shades I got are: Satin Taupe, Espresso, Expensive Pink, Coppering, Contrast and Lucky Green. I wanted a nice variety of colours and I must admit, I am very happy with all my choices.


My first order consisted of:

Satin Taupe - a cool toned taupe colour with silver micro shimmer
Espresso - matte medium brown, perfect for filling in eyebrows. I also like using it in the crease.
Coppering - a dark coppery orange shade with a gorgeous veluxe pearl finish. It is stunning!
Contrast - navy blue with purple undertones, perfect for a smokey eye or used as a liner.

While ordering a new MAC foundation, I decided to add two more eye shadows into my basket :)

Lucky Green - bright green with gold undertones and a veluxe pearl finish
Expensive Pink - muted rose/pink shade with rose gold shimmer. It is breathtakingly beautiful!

I might have bought two more shades already... Yes, I have. I got Humid and Goldmine :) I will be featuring them in future makeup looks and in my MAC palette post. Filling a 15 pan palette was an expensive journey, but I love having a custom selection of colours. I might even start building another one, if I have some Christmas vouchers to use up :)
