MAC ‘Ageless Beauty’ Masterclass Event: Part Two

 

MAC Masterclass Event: Some of the free goodies and purchases

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A couple of months ago, I attended a MAC Masterclass event focusing on ‘Ageless Beauty’.  You can read my first post providing background on the event here.

This particular post focuses on the content covered in the Masterclass.  The Masterclass was called ‘Ageless Beauty’, with the focus on achieving beautiful skin at all ages.  The post gives more details on the class content, skin care routine, day look and evening look.

I have written a series of posts about the event which I will be posting on the site.  Each part focuses on a specific aspect, so you can either read them all or go to the one that you are specifically interested in.  Part One (read more here) provides Background to the Masterclass (what is a MAC Masterclass, cost and booking, structure, goodie bag, after the event).  Part Two (this post) covers the Masterclass Content and Look Overview (skin care, day time look, evening look).  Part Three will provide details on the tips and techniques I learned from the event.

Morphe Live in Color Artistry Palette

 

Morphe Live in Color Artistry Palette

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Morphe recently released their Live in Color Artistry Palette as part of Pride celebrations across June/July 2019.  This is the first time I have purchased a product from Morphe; I couldn’t resist this palette as I love colourful eyeshadows!

I think the Morphe Live in Color Artistry Palette is a fantastic choice if you love colour or want to add some colour to your existing collection.  There is an incredible assortment of shades, tones and finishes in the palette, giving so many possibilities for different looks and colour combinations.  The eyeshadows are incredibly pigmented, give fantastic colour payoff and are blendable, making them easy to work with when creating looks.

I feel so inspired every time I pick up this palette and find myself reaching for different shades to create fun looks.  It’s so easy to stick with the same shades in a palette, so I think it is fantastic that this palette encourages me to experiment and try out all sorts of colours.

A wonderful aspect to this palette is that 100% of net proceeds from the collection (there is also a brush set available) will be made to The Trevor Project.  The Trevor Project is a US-based non-profit organisation which helps to fund 24/7 suicide prevention and crisis intervention services for LGBTQ+ youth.  It’s really nice to feel you are giving something back through purchasing this beautiful eyeshadow palette.

You can view various looks that I have created using the Morphe Live in Color Artistry Palette on my site here.

Inglot 10 Cream Pressed Pigment Eyeshadows

 

Inglot 10 Cream Pressed Pigment Eyeshadows and Palette

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Inglot recently released the ‘Inglot 10 Cream Pressed Pigment Eyeshadows’ collection, a new formula for the brand which is part of the 10 year anniversary celebration.  The 10 shades are unique to the brand and inspired by their loose pure pigment range.

The amazing feature of this release is that you have the option to purchase all 10 shades, along with the limited edition Inglot 10 Palette (discounted to £56, usual price £65) or buy shades individually (£5 each).  It’s not often you have the choice over which shades you select, as there are times when you purchase a palette but only want – or end up using – some of them.

The Cream Pressed Pigment eyeshadows are available for purchase elsewhere in the world, if you live outside the UK and Ireland.  The ‘Inglot 10’ palette isn’t available for purchase if you aren’t in the UK or Ireland.  However, Inglot is instead offering a Freedom System Partylicious Palette, along with 10% off when you purchase the full set of 10 eyeshadows.

This post is slightly mixed, in that whilst I think these eyeshadows are amazing, there are some issues with them. I’ve discussed the versatile and beautifully sparkly nature of these eyeshadows, as well as the issues concerning their fragility, in the post in detail below.  I think the eyeshadows are definitely worth getting but it is helpful to know about the issues I have found so you can make a more informed choice on whether to purchase them.

Kiko ‘Green Me Collection’: 02 Feisty Saffron Eyeshadow Palette (re-released in 2019)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Last year, I posted about the Kiko 02 Feisty Saffron Eyeshadow Palette, which was part of Kiko’s limited edition ‘Green Me’ collection. Kiko has released the Green Me collection again this year and included the 02 Feisty Saffron Palette.  I thought it would be helpful to flag up my post from last year, in case you are considering purchasing this palette.  I thought that this palette was a great smaller and cheaper alternative to Urban Decay’s Naked Heat Palette and Tarte’s Toasted Palette.  

Last year’s post included a sneak peek of products I picked up from a recent trip to Kiko.  Click here to see the post.

I recently picked up a few of the Rimmel Wonder Swipe 2 in 1 Liner to Shadows in a 3 for 2 deal and I’ve really been enjoying using them.  These products can be used just as their name states; apply them as a liquid eyeliner or blend them out on to the lid for a sparkly eyeshadow look.

I think this product is a great way to experiment with your look, whether you choose to wear it as a bold, metallic liner along your lashline or if you like to smudge it out for a soft, gentle sparkle on the lid.  The wide choice in shades (16 on the Rimmel site) also means you can mix it up however you choose.

Too Faced Peach Kiss Moisture Matte Long Wear Lipsticks

I’m a huge fan of the Too Faced Peaches and Cream products and am absolutely loving their new Too Faced Peach Kiss Moisture Long Wear Lipsticks.  I first purchased the shade ‘Breakfast Club’ and was so impressed that I ended up picking up two more shades – Got Peach? and Peach Beach.

I love the vibrancy, opacity, smoothness and comfortable feel of these lipsticks.  They smell delicious too, due to their refreshing peachy, vanilla-esque scent.

If you are on the look out for a new matte lipstick with incredible pigment, opacity and comfort, then I highly recommend the Too Faced Peach Kiss range!

NYX Away We Glow Eyeshadow Palette

 

NYX Away We Glow Eyeshadow Palette in Hooked on Glow

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Some time ago, I posted a sneak peek of the NYX Away We Glow Eyeshadow Palette in ‘Hooked on Glow’ (you can see the post here).  The palette really caught my eye due to the beautiful mix of peach, gold and brown shades in various finishes and tones.

I’ve been using the palette for quite a while now and think it is amazing! The range of colours, finishes and tones makes the palette extremely versatile, whether you want to create easy daily looks or more complex combinations. The eyeshadows are beautifully pigmented, smooth and last well on the lids.  Win-win for me!

I mentioned in my recent ‘sneak peek’ post (you can see the post here) that one of my favourite YouTubers, EmilyNoel83, has launched two palettes, in collaboration with MakeupRevolution.  The two palettes – The Wants and The Needs – are amazing and I have really been enjoying playing with them.

Today’s post features ‘The Wants’, an eyeshadow palette with 24 eyeshadows spanning a wide range of colours, tones and finishes.  The shades in the palette have been created to inspire you, as well as to keep you in your comfort zone with your make-up.

I absolutely love this eyeshadow palette, as it has an amazing range of colours, tones and finishes, all for just £15.  I would highly recommend the palette to anyone who wants to try out lots of different, great quality shades at an affordable price.

You can read my post on ‘The Needs’ Palette here.

You can view eyeshadow combinations and look ideas using The Wants Palette on the site here! I’m really enjoying playing around with it and creating different looks.  Let me know if there are any shades you would love me to showcase in looks!

Today’s post features ‘The Needs’, an ‘all-in-one’ palette which contains everyday essentials for quick and easy make-up.  

I think this palette ticks all the boxes for anyone who wants to streamline their make-up application, have everything to hand in one place or have a travel friendly option.  The design of the palette, along with the enclosed products, make every day make-up so much easier – and quicker – to navigate.  Whether you are a fan of Emily or just someone who wants to make their make-up process more seamless, I think this product is amazing! It’s also at a great price point – £10 – so it’s a great way to try out a variety of different products!
