MAC Nutcracker Sweet Collection

For a few months now I sort of drifted away from MAC – I don’t know whether this was due to boredom, or that I just wanted to try other niche brands on the market.  This all changed when the new Nutcracker Sweet Collection came out and suddenly this burst of colour drew me back.  Instantly attracted to the very vibrant hues in the collection, I knew I had to add these to the pro kit – not least because I have a shoot coming up next year which will work perfectly with these.  So the colours below shown are eyeshadows in Rabblerouser and Dance Flowers Dance – the lipstick is in Kingdom of Sweets.

The eyeshadows seem to be highly pigmented with a slight sheen of glitter dust.  The lipstick is a cremesheen so should give a matte appearance without being too drying.  I can’t wait to try them out! x

Product spotlight – Chanel lipstick in Rouge Coco Shine 54 Boy

I love it when a bride or fellow Artist finds a real product hero, and this lipstick is one of those gems that once you have it you’ll still remember it, or even be using it in years to come.  This utterly beautiful lipstick by Chanel was recommended by one of my brides, who wanted to use it for her final wedding look, and I can understand why.  It’s that perfect combination between pink & a subtle brown with a very ‘grown up’ shine that catches the light wonderfully – all the Rouge Coco formulas also have an added bonus of having a built in lip plumper and hydration complex, making it easy to wear anytime.

I would highly recommend using this particular shade if your trying to tie in your makeup look and can’t quite find that right hue that goes with everything, or for those that want to use a lipstick but are not used to the matte finish – yet want something that has a ‘WOW’ factor x
