MAC Wood Winked Eye Shadow

What is it?

A spectacular golden bronze coloured eye shadow. Highly-pigmented powder. Applies evenly, blends well.

What do I think of it?

One of the things I love about this shadow is how it blends so beautifully leaving a much deeper colour than if it were just patted onto the eyelid. I like to wear this blended through my crease whilst patting it onto my mobile lid. This gives the effect of two shadows being used. Perfect for those days when you are in a hurry or travelling. Once the shadow has been blended it looks coppery and slightly darker compared to where I have simply patted it on my lid using a shadow brush.

The colour is so pretty – shimmery and with lovely warm tones. It blends beautifully and leaves me with no fall down. When I wear this I look bright eyed, even if I don’t feel it!

MAC Syrup Lipstick

What is it?

A muted cloudy pink lipstick with a lustre finish that is very wearable. Subtle plumb and berry hints mean that this gives a ‘your lips but better’ effect.

What do I think of it?

Syrup is a lustre finish which means that it applies quite sheer on the lips, although the colour is easily built up with another layer or two. The lustre formula also means that the lipstick leaves a slightly glossy finish, and the added moisture is great as it doesn’t dry out the lips – making Syrup very comfortable to wear!

I have been reaching for this lippy on a daily basis since its purchase back in June. Already I am 2/3 down – I really do need to purchase another. It is a beautiful colour with a lovely texture. Perfect for day or night.
