MAC Haul Burgundy Times Nine, Amber Times Nine and Whirl Lip Pencil
Christmas has been and gone and I've been buying gifts for people for the last couple of months, I thought it was about time to get myself a little treat. I was browsing the MAC site for a gift for my best friend and couldn't help but pick up a couple things for myself to, sometimes you gotta treat yourself right?

MAC Haul Burgundy Times Nine Eyeshadow Palette
I read a post a week or two ago that featured the MAC Burgundy Times Nine Eyeshadow Palette and I just thought it was the most gorgeous palette I had ever seen! The palette just looks like Winter shimmery mauve heaven and I had to get my hands on it! I'm not going to lie, I thought this palette was going to consist of 9 full size eye shadows and I'd have bagged myself the bargain of the century. In actual fact the shadows are probably half the size, but they are super cute and the palette does make the perfect hand bag accessory. The palette is filled with gorgeous burgundy hues in an array of different textures from matte to frost and satin to veluxe pearl. From left to right:
Honey Lust (lustre) | Golden peach shimmer 
Poppysead (satin) | Matte rose nude 
Quarry (matte) | Soft light nude brown
Antiqued (Veluxe Pearl) | Dark copper bronze
Embark (matte) | Dark brown with an earthy red feel
#Noir (velvet) | Deep black/brown with golden shimmer
Haux (veluxe pearl) | Rose nude matte
Star Violet (deluxe pearl) | Copper plum
Sketch (Velvet) | Burgundy with red shimmer
The shades are gorgeous and offer countless burgundy eye looks in one neat little package. I think Honey Lust, Antiqued and Star violet have got to be my favourite. The shades are beautiful and the formulas feel so soft and silky. I haven't used most of them on my eyes yet, but I have noticed the colour pay off isn't quite like the full size pans. For just £25 though, I think this is a staple for Winter time!

MAC Haul Amber Times Nine Eyeshadow Palette and Whirl Lip Pencil
I couldn't just stop at one palette, I had to pick up Amber Times Nine as well! I just couldn't choose between the two! Amber Times Nine is a beautiful selection of Amber neutral hues that will have the golden nude lover in us screaming! Again this palette has a mix of mattes, satin, frosts, lustres and velvet shades. From left to right:
Cozy Grey (matte) | Matte cool grey
Kitties (Frost) | Champagne gold
Georgia Peach (matte) | Pale rose pink
Ricepaper (frost) | Pale champagne peach
Creative Copper (lustre) | Light golden shimmer
Cork (satin) | Golden brown nude
Don't Tell (lustre) | Dark golden shimmery brown
Aromatic (matte) | Dark matte brown with subtle grey undertone
Pepper Please (velvet) | Shimmery bronze charcoal brown
This will be the perfect everyday palette. I'm a sucker for a champagne/bronze eye and I know I'll get a lot of use out of this, especially in the Summer. My favourite shades are Creative Copper, Cork and Don't Tell.

I've been meaning to buy more MAC lip liners since I got my first one Soar a while pack. I just love it so much, it really helps define your lips and up your lip game! I picked up Whirl, it's a shade darker than Soar. A dirty rose with more of a burgundy feel. This is going to be perfect this time of year. I love a warm dark rose nude lip! This will be great to create that Kylie Jenner lip. I think this is going to be perfect with Velvet Teddy and Brave!

I'm so excited to use my new MAC goodies, I can't wait to create a beautiful Winter look with my Burgundy Times Nine and Whirl lip liner!

What are you favourite MAC shadow and liners beauties?

  3. I've had my eye on the burgundy palette for so long! I do already have a few of the shades in my custom palette, but I love the look of the others! You've picked up some great products and you've seriously got me tempted! x
