Nic's been shopping.....

We often get asked what we have been purchasing recently or what is in our make up bag. Nic has just returned to the office with a bag of new loveliness that she is excited about so we thought we would share her purchases with you.

MAC Electric cool eye shadows
 These are part of MAC's latest launch called a Novel Romance. These are powder eye shadows which feel spongy and almost like a cream. Powder is pressed into the pot in a solid formula. They give quite a sheer wash of colour which has a high pearl finish and look similar to the MAC pigments when on the skin. There is no drop down from these products but the shimmering pigment does travel slightly on the face. Enough colour to wear alone but they do look particularly beautiful on top of other shadows to give a shimmering vibrancy.
 Nic brought three shades in Pure Flash, coli and superwatt.
 Pure flash is a champagne with a silver shimmer. Superwatt is an beige/apricot with gold shimmer and coil is a gorgeous antique rust/copper. This colour is stunning.

 These were £15.50 each and are available we believe for a limited time.

Nic loves a false lash and has gone a bit crazy for false lashes. Here's what she went for....
No 4
No 33
No 36

 These are regular lashes MAC always stocks and were £10.50 each.

Salon Systems lashes
Salon system lashes in the short length. These lashes start at around £3.00 depending on the size box you get.

Eylure Pro-brow Dye kit

Nic purchased the dye kit in brown. This lasts up to 6 weeks and gives the hairs a rich, warm brown tint to the brows.
This kit is £7.25 

 Bleached and highlighted hair is often brittle and lacking protein. Nic is loving this reconstructor from Bed Head to improve and restore the protein levels in her hair. Use after shampooing to leave the hair soft and smooth. This also smells amazing!! This was £12.00

Which I adore!

    A surprise, recently, was the Max Factor Skin Luminiser Foundation. I have dry skin and this reminds me of high end foundations like Luminous Silk, Touche Eclat and Vitalumiere. Very happy to find something I really like that is so reasonably priced.
