Debenhams 3/6


MAC Blush Ombre in Azalea Blossom

Finally, I managed to get my hands on this blush. Originally, It was a limited edition in the Spring Forecast Collection 2010 but I missed out. Luckly, it has been recently re-issued in the Daphne Guinness Collection.
Disappointed about the packaging as, although it's a limited editon, it's nothing special but the ordinary black Mac pot.
The product itself... ummm, I'm not sure either. I like the ombre' mix between pink and violet, resulting in a cool pink tone... but it feels a bit waxy and it doesn't write too well... I might just have to try and scratch the surface and see if it improves. 
Is anybody else's having the same problem with this blush?



Bare Minerals High Shine EyeColor in Vapor
I've only recently been discovering this brand... I think the mineral foundation is excellent so I have high expectations for other products too. :)
I decided to try the eyeshadow: there are sooo many pretty colours, they are all vibrant and with dimension. I picked Vapor as I don't have anything similar in my collection; it's a rich, high pigmented blue-ish grey.
I really like it: it's very cream and goes on beautifully without creasing. Being a powder, tho, application can be a bit tricky and definitely not something I reach for when in a hurry. 
Also, I'm not a fan of the packaging - it's very messy and feels like there's not much product in the tube. Apart from that, I'd like to try other colours too - have a look at Meteorite or Moonshine... aren't they gorgeous?!




Finally, I was so thrilled to receive a sample of Especially Escada eau de parfum as I love it!!!
Btw, I don't know what's the deal with Debenhams freebies with online orders: sometimes they send you a sample, sometimes they don't and doesn't even seem to be connected to how much you spend... boh!

  1. I've noticed that with Debenhams too, sometimes I get none or just one sample with an order and other times I've had like 5! Odd! The bareminerals eyeshadow looks gorgeous :) x
