MAC Surf The Ocean Crushed Metallic Pigments

What MAC says about them: A style-wave of four limited edition shades of crushed metallic pigment individually presented in a see-through stack. Cool as water, blue and aqua-green shades shimmer amidst bronze, silver, and platinum frost. Limited edition.

What I say about them: I have been craving these Pigments for a while and went to the Covent Gardens MAC store and they were sold out :( so i went to Westfield this morning yup on a Friday morning and went for a visit to MAC. Thank goodness they were not sold out! I got them!! so i have been playing around with them this afternoon and to my happiness the color payoff is gorgeous! really really love them!

Because I was at Westfield I couldn’t help but stop in to Inglot cosmetics another brand everyone should buy. And got a few eyeshadows there. The brightness of their colors and the range of colors is absolutely amazing! So as makeup days goes it was a great one :)

One more thing! Clinique in House of Fraser has a giveaway today!! either in the one in Westfield or on Oxford st. Go to the counter and “check in” on your BlackBerry through places and show it to the Beauty Advisor there and get a free Airbrush Undereye Concealer!! I did it go for it!!

11pm on wednesday night and I’m really really inspired to do my makeup unfortunately there is no point coz as soon as I have done it it will have to come off my face!

It all started a while ago when i was tweeting (yes people i was on twitter) and I was looking at different makeup blogs and checking out different tutorials. Then I was checking out a palette that Make Up For Ever just put together and am totally lusting after its so bright and colorful and all the summery colors that one needs in their little makeup world. When it comes to Eyeshadows and MUFE the searching stops there! Their colors are vibrant and true to what you see!! Every time i went into their Flagship store in New York it reminded me why I love their shadows over any others (they are bigger and more pigmented)!! The people in the store are also really helpful and friendly. Its a small and quiet store in Downtown manhattan yet so much goes on there. I wish I still lived in NY just for that!!
Tell me you don’t want this!! These are the Color numbers if you want to get this palette together 26, 2, 99, 159, 18, 72, 92, 75, 91, 9. In order from back row left to right.

So anyway as I was saying about my inspiration, i went from place to place (online) just googling and searching makeup ideas and inspirations!! and this is why I LOVE Makeup so much. There is so much out there that can be created into a makeup look and honed and perfected into pure unadulterated beauty. Im probably waffling but my love and creativity at the moment are not being used because its so late and I have to wake up early but my heart is popping and I know I wont be able to fall asleep because my mind will be racing away at all the different makeup looks i can do in the morning and cant wait to try!

Ok ill stop! I really have to calm down and relax before bed.

Wishing everyone a peaceful and restful night (one that i wont be having)

Keep on shining and glowing
