MAC'Lovin - My MAC Must-Haves.

Hi lovelies, hope you are enjoying the Bank Holiday weekend! This weekend could not have come soon enough, it has been an exhausting few weeks back at work and the extra day is definitely appreciated! How you all spending yours? The boyfriend and I are off out to York Gardens today in Twickenham, so hopefully even with the clouds, might get some awesome pictures to share of pretty fountains. Before I get on with the MAC Wishlist just wanted to share the exciting news that I was one of the ten lucky gals to become an Aussie Angel, and am absolutely thrilled about it! Congrats to everyone that were given their wings, and look forward to meeting you all in the future!

Now onto the post, as I am currently staying at the boyfriend's house, outfit posts might be a bit limited (which is why this week's Friday's Frock has gone amiss) but I am hoping for a little sunshine tomorrow so I can take some outside. So instead, I am just sharing my current MAC wishlight - which has grown since swatching the new Hey Sailor collection!

Firstly, we have the timeless MAC Russian Red Lipstick - £12.50

Since buying my first MAC lipstick last weekend, I have been desperate to add this little beaut to my collection, even more so since wearing my Gabrielle Chanel lipstick everyday this week! I swatched it again when I was in the MAC store yesterday, and just love the deepness of this red that has that sultry, starlet look to it. At £12.50 and with such long-lasting power (I could still see the swatch faintly on my hand last night despite having washed them several times since swatching) I feel this is a much more reasonable daily lipstick than Chanel which is over £20. 

Secondly, the Hey Sailor collection caught my eye, obviously with my love for all things nautical, and with the added bonus of the gorgeous packaging & pin-up colours I couldn't resist not swatching the new collection with the 'Jaunty' eyeshadow being one of my favourites:

 I swatched this for the first time today and absolutely loved it! If anyone has 'Sin' from the Naked2 Palette, it is alot like that shimmery light pink/gold colour and would make an excellent highlighter! Personally, I would use it as an everyday eyeshadow as its such a neutral colour but the shimmer gives it that added glamour effect. At £12.50, might just have to treat myself to it if I find it again, but its a worry at how fast the stock is all going!

Finally, what seems to be the most sought after piece of the Hey Sailor collection, is the MAC 'Red Racer' lipstick:

This seems to be sold out EVERYWHERE! I have looked online, I have looked in stores, and I have even turned to eBay but have had no luck so far which is just making me want it more! It looks like the ideal pin-up red, with instead of being a deep red like 'Russian Red' its more bright and eye-catching - perfect for the 50s pin-up theme. I am determined to find it somewhere, and when I do it shall be miiiiiine.

Anyway, there is endless amount of MAC products I want, but this is currently topping the list. 

What is on your MAC list? Are you loving the Sailor collection or not?

  1. Swatched Red Racer yesterday and it looks to be quite an orange-toned red, as opposed to classic blue toned reds - not a fan personally because it looks several different kinds of weird on my skintone, but may very well suit yours! xxx


Thank you for the comments! I love reading every single one, it means so much to me knowing people are actually reading my ramblings! So thanks and I will reply to each one :-)
