Don’t you just love it when your Mum goes through her make up and gives all the stuff that she doesn’t want and leaves it in your hallway in a little Boots carrier bag? No? Just me then?
I was super excited to come home the other day and find that Mum had left me some presents in my hallway – mainly because I’m on my spending ban until the beginning of March (>link here<) and I’ve started getting withdrawal symptoms!
Turns out Mum is a massive MAC eyeshadow fan and I was super thrilled to have these in my collection. Luckily I don’t have them already! So from left to right, we have Omega, Espresso, Vex, Contrast and Knight Divine. I would say I’m really excited to play around with Vex, which is a frost finish and looks really pearly. Omega and Espresso are matte, neutral shades; I’m going through a real neutral phase with my make up at the mo, so I guess I’m going to get quite a bit of use out of them! Contrast is of a velvet finish and I’ve actually used this eyeshadow before when I very first started getting into make up and wanted my eyes to look bluer 🙂 Knight Divine is ‘veluxe pearl’ (I’m not sure what this means yet, but I’m guessing is blendable) metallic grey shade, which I would probably use on a night out.
Next up, Mum has given me two Bobbi Brown lip glosses. I’m going through a bold lip phase at the moment, rather than glosses, but I’m sure I’ll get my use out of these. I’m worried that Rose Sugar 3 is a little bit too orange for my skin tone, but I’m sure if I put it over the top of another colour, it’ll look fine. I haven’t tried Bobbi Brown lip glosses before, so I’ll let you know how I get on 🙂
Lastly, Mum gave me these limited edition MAC lipstick and lipgloss in I Love Winter and Deelight. I got these for Christmas from my brother in 2011, so Mum obviously bought herself them as well 🙂 She also gave me the lip pencil in Pink Treat, which looks very similar to these colours so I can probably get away with using them all at the same time 🙂
Hooray for Mums and beauty junkie daughters! Have you inherited any make up from your Mum recently?
