Recent MAC Purchases

As mentioned in my Leicester meet up post, I went on the hunt for some eyeshadows to fill my quad. I bought a quad palette a few months back and gradually filled it when Debenhams had their 10% Beauty event. It meant that the refills were only £9 so I treated myself and filled it with quite neutral, earthy colours. When they extended their offer, I bought another quad and thought i'd fill it over the next few months. It'd been over 4 weeks since I bought an eyeshadow to add to it so when I went to Leicester, I made sure I got one (or two)

I'm also a sucker for a MAC lipstick after trying out a few of their finishes, i'm definitely a Matte or Amplified kinda girl so i've been adding to my collection here too! I normally love wearing bold shades but I do occasionally, like a subtle nude lip so after buying and LOVING Velvet Teddy (see my review here), I got myself another nude! 

Refill - Nocturnelle £10.00
Eyeshadow compact - Contrast £12.50
Matte Lipstick - Honeylove £15.00

I've just got to get the hang of depotting the shadows now though. The 3 i've done already have all got a tiny chip missing where I slipped whilst trying to get the pan out! I've tried both methods that are floating around so if you know of another way, please tell me! 

Have you bought anything from MAC lately?
