Mac 'Give Me Liberty of London' Haul

Whilst wandering around the beauty hall in Selfridges this weekend I came accross the new Mac collections. The 'Give Me Liberty of London' and 'Art Supplies' in particular caught my eye.

I was a little disappointed with what they had to offer, the best thing about the new collection was the packaging! The 'Give me Liberty of London' packaging was so cute that I knew that I had to find something from it. The beauty powders (speciffically the 'Shell Pearl') caught my attention but had unfortunately sold out!

In the end I chose the 'Blooming Lovely' lipstick which was a pale purple shade, (shown below) which was something that I hadn't tried before.

The second product I chose was the 'Runway Ripened' colour Pro Long Wear Lipstain Marker from the 'Art Supplies' collection. I have had lip stains before but never from Mac so i'm interested to see how this one works out.

The third item I brought was a little unusual for me, it was the small makeup bag from the 'Give Me Liberty' collection. I don't tend to go for their makeup bags as I find them over priced for what they are, (hence I restrained my self when the Hello Kitty collection came out) but this time I thought this particular one was so cute that I would 'throw caution to the wind' and break a habbit of a lifetime!

The other product I picked up that day was the Yerba Mate Tea Cleanser by Kiehls. I believe this was mentioned by Lollipop26 in one of her monthly favourites videos a while back and having tried a sample I thought I would give it a go. I will hopefully get around to doing a review of this product soon.


  1. looking forward to hearing your thoughts on the kiehls cleanser :) i want to try this myself :)

  2. Hi Eve,

    So far I really like it but its still early days yet.

    I would recommed that you visit a Kiehls counter if you can because they are usually really with giving out samples.

  3. The make up bag looks a lot like a pencil case, really cute though!!! The packaging is lovely.

  4. Yes it does, doesn't it! Guess that would make it the most expensive pencil case I ever brought! ouch.
