Small Mac & Benefit haul- swatch & pics

So today on my lunchbreak I finally got down to Mac to buy the one item I have been lusting over from the Mac stylishly yours collection: Cream colour base in Virgin Isle.
I also purchased the only item I really wanted from the Cham pale collection: I get no kick Eye Kohl.
I may then have stumbled into benefit in search of a peachy coloured eyeshadow, which is when I bought a benefit discontinued silky powder eyeshadow in a yummy peach colour shallow. At £6.25 I felt this was a necessary buy ;)
Mac I get no kick eye kohl, Benefit silky powder eyeshadow- shallow, Mac cream colour base- virgin isle


I get no kick, shallow, virgin isle, virgin isle blended

When I applied all the products together:

-I love love love Virgin isle and knew I would. The colour looks great on the lips as well as cheeks (worn on both in picture)

-Very happy with my Benefit sale buy, nice silky powder and lovely matte peach colour.

And how could you not like a pretty pearl coloured eye pencil- nice in the waterline and perfect for brightening corners of eyes.

  1. Oh I love virgin isle on your lips, but I don't think it is a colour that would suit me.

  2. Even though I got Rich Coral I HAD to get Virgin Isle. I ordered it online with other things yesterday so let's see how they compare.
    Loved all your purchases. That Benefit e/s looks gorgeous on you. It really make your green eyes stand out! XXX

  3. @Mercedes: Hah I would have done the same! I was so close to getting rich coral then they brought virgin isle back out, so happy! x

  4. p.s Kelsey, we are twins so it would suit you! x

  5. The benefit eye shadow looks amazing, would complement a lighter tone of blusher nicely. Maybe the Mac Chromographic Pencil. You have lovely eyes and would help accentuate them. Love and peace x

  6. @MakeOver Ltd: Thanks :) ooh yes i was considering buying the chromographic pencil..maybe on my lunch break hah. xx

  7. Yes anytime darling it a good time to buy makeup ha! I work for Mac so as you can imagine it never ends for me..... How I love this world of beauty. Love and peace xx
