News in my beautycase!

I got a few new things in january/february and now I found the time to take some pictures =)

MAC Eyeshadows: Paradisco, Swish, Hepcat (top row), Electra, Silver Ring (middle row), Cork, Woodwinked (bottom row)

Paradisco is such a gorgeous colour but very sheer on my complexion. I need to grub in the pan to get a visible amount of colour :(

Swish is a nice, blue-based poppy pink. It goes very well with brown eyes and has a little metalic shimmer in it.

Hepcat is a darker purple pink. It looks great paired with Swish!

Electra is the classic silver eyeshadow with a hint of blue, but not as much as Silverthorn e/s.

Silver Ring is a shimmery steel grey with a hint of blue, too, it's like a darker version of Electra.

Cork is a matte, mid-toned brown every palette needs. I was looking for Saddle e/s but it was sold out everywhere. So I got Cork as an alternative and it works great.

Woodwinked looks like a mix of antique gold and bronze. You should try it with Quite Natural Paint Pot as a base, it looks faboulous because it brings out the opulent, golden shimmer.

MAC Lipsticks: Ruby Woo (left) and Velvet Teddy

MAC Ruby Woo is a classic, blue-based red. It's the first choice for girls of my complexion if they look for a classic and bold red. It's a matte finish, on the picture I wear it with a small amount of clear gloss on top.

MAC Velvet Teddy is a matte, dark beige. It looks like my lips, just a few darker. So for pigmented lips it's a typical MLBB (my lips but better) shade. I love to wear it in everyday looks.

I finally purchased my very first Benefit products. They were in sale, 7.99€ each. I bought "Her Glossiness A-list" lipgloss in"didn't hear it from me" (what a name for a lipgloss! lol) and "The Gloss" lipgloss in "rave reviews". I love the packaging, it reminds me of the 50ies.

Rave Reviews looks like a dark red in the tube, but on my lips it is sheer. It makes my lips look a little bit more red and healthier.

Didn't hear it from me is a cute peachy pink shade in the tube, but on my pigmented lips it is invisible, so I didn't bother doing any lip swatches. But it looks great on top of peach or peachy pink lipsticks like MAC Shy Girl.

Thanks for reading and commenting!

oh, ich habe silver ring auch und mag ihn, aber auf dem Auge sieht silver grey von manhattan, den ich schon davor hatte, zum verwechseln ähnlich aus ... ich war echt sauer, als ich mich mit beiden Farben schminkte und keinen Unterschied sah ^^"
