MAC eye shadow haul

There is nothing like a MAC eye shadow haul :) This haul is actually a few months old, but I though I would still share. 

I much prefer to buy MAC shadows as refills. First of all they are a lot cheaper and I find them much easier to store in the palettes. I really like the quad palettes as they are super for going away or putting in you make-up bag for the gym etc. I love being able to mix & match and having the flexibility to make my own palettes.

So this time around I got (clockwise): Coppering, Embark, Arena and Espresso:

Coppering lives up to its name, an amazing coppery shade. Like all MAC shades it has excellent pigmentation and staying power. Embark is a matt dark brown with red undertones which really seem to make my blue/green eyes pop.

Espresso is not as dark as I though it would be as it is more of a soft brown, but it is still a great colour and a very versatile matt brown that goes with almost anything. The last shade in this haul is Arena, which is a super pretty neutral warm peachy/golden colour with a satin finish.

Rimmel Blush

My local drugstore was having a 2-for-1 on Rimmel some weeks back and I decided to try out these two Lasting Finish Soft Colour blushes. I got the shades 020 Pink Rose and 010 Santa Rose. As you can see Pink Rose lives up to its name, being a lovely rosy pink shade where Santa Rose is a more peachy toned blush. 

I have to say that I have been so impressed with these blushes! I have almost worn them every day since getting them. I absolutely love the colours, especially Santa Rose, it is just the perfect blush shade and I love how it looks on my skin. 

I guess the staying power could be a tiny bit better, but that's honestly just me nitpicking...I mean for drugstore blushes, these have good pigmentation and colour pay off. Plus they do stick around through out most of the day just fine, they just loose a bit of oomph late in the day, but nothing that makes me love them any less. I think they are absolutely fabulous :)

Shoes Of The Day - Gladiator sandals

These are my beloved suede gladiator inspired sandals. I got these on a trip to Hamburg a few years ago and they are still some of my very favourite shoes for summer. They are from the brand Scholl and I love the details, the gladiator look and the colour. They are also super comfortable and just really great. 

PS: On my nails I'm wearing my go-to colour for summer...Holiday by Chanel. Even if does look more red, than orange in these pictures :)
