New to M.A.C IS the legendary mascara that plays it two ways, it now comes in an intense carbon pigment for a shade that is blacker than black. With its innovative dual-wiper system, get lashes that are naturally defined or loaded for full-on drama. Your lashes, your look, your call. What do you think?
A little late as I haven’t had the time to put it up, it was the 50th anniversary of the stars death on the 5th August. To commemorate the great star here is a look inspired by her, Pin up style with Red Lips. It’s still a very popular look with the likes of Dita Von Teese and one of my favourites. Take a look:
The final collection to come from MAC this month is thier Electric Cool Collection which consists of a new eye shadow in 12 different shades and the 252 Large Shader Brush. The soft, lightweight, springy formula delivers hue-rich colour which will leave people asking what you use. One touch and you’ll be wired into its sensational blending power and for pro quality use the 252 large Shader Brush. The product will give you a Medium to high coverage which transforms your eyes.
The Electric Cool Eye Shadow Shades:
Switch To Blue
I’m hoping to swatch these soon to see what the colours are actually like, I’d love to try Pure Flash! or Love Power maybe these would work well as bases. Infra-Violet seems to be the most noticeable colour which really pops. Which would you try?
Mac’s first permanent nail lacquer collection consists of 30 beautiful shades with something for everyonea. The new high gloss formula has three finishes; cream, sheer and frosted. The visibly different formula provides no streak, no chip finish and also contains nail conditioners with uv protection.
The Shades are:
Faint Of Heart
Mean and Green
Spirit Of Truth
Girl About Town
I love the colours but I’ve never been a huge fan of the MAC formula, since they have a new formula I’m thinking of trying Faint of Heart or Delicate.
Will you be buying any of the nail varnishes from this collection?

The MUA palettes are amazing but I’ll tell you more of why once I review them fully. For my Olympic look I used their Going For Gold Palette, it features many different hues of Bronze, Silver and Gold some been quite pale, some bright and some shimmery. I picked the ones I thought would work the best and to be honest I’d happily wear this look on a night out pity I’m not attending the London Olympics for real I’m sure I could cheer on or maybe work behind the scenes. Anyway here is what I used:
Benefit The Pore-Fessional
Me Me Me Cosmetics – Flawless Finish Tinted Moisturiser SP15 – Porcelain Pure
M.A.C Select Moisturecover – NW15
MUA Mosaic Blusher – English Rose
Sleek Make up – I-DIVINE Primer Palette – Silver Lining and Money Honey
In my Lux Box this month I received an eco eye shadow trio from Green People, this little compact has three beautiful shades to create the perfect look. The shade I recieved in my box was Earth and I think this will create a lovely down to earth look, hence the name. Green People are a British organic product company that has been running for 15 years and they sell a wide range of organic products such as skincare, make up and hair products just to name a few. I used these to create the look:

MUA : Mosaic Blusher – English Rose
E.L.F. Pearl Eye Primer
Sleek Primer Palette
Green People: Eco Eye Shadow Trio – Earth
Benefit Eyeliner Pencil – Onyx
