MAC Cosmetics Objections of Affections Pigments - Silver and Blue!

Hey guys! So another Objections of Affections pigment review, but this time we are going for the silver and blue set. So lets get right into it!

As I spoke about it in my last post I am not really going to chat much about the packaging. The four pigments and glitter come in this cute little glitter box with a silhouette on it. Very pretty! The silver and blue one comes with a white lid which I was surprised as due to the colours being the darkest available but I love the white. 

This kit is just the prefect smokey eye pigment set. It can be tricky doing a dark smokey eye with pigments as they can be quite messy but if you power through and stay patience (which I struggle with!) you will end up with the most beautiful and highly pigmented eye. The website names these colours (from L-R) as White, Blue Noir, Deep Blue Green, Grey (Glitter) and Dark Soul. 

All I done for these swatches was use my pinky and look how amazingly they smoke out. Obviously the glitter would look better with a base/glitter glue - or what I do is put lipgloss of my eye and then make it stick to the lipgloss! Again I think this will be the most perfect dark smokey eye. Especially at times like New Year when smokey eyes are all in! 

As I said in my last post these perfect little sets are only £26 which I think is an absolute steal! Such a good deal for four mini pigments and glitter! 

These sets are available from MAC store, MAC online and then department stores such as Debenhams and House of Fraser. I would definitely recommend snapping these up. At £26 I think they will sell out fast!

Do you guys love these sets as much as I do?
Let us know!

MAC Cosmetics Objects of Affections Pigments - Pink & Rose!

Hey guys! I just love when MAC go live with their holiday collections as you are always able to find amazing deals! 
The first thing that got my eye from all the holiday collections this year was the little mini pigment sets. These include 4 mini pigments and 1 mini glitter. All this for £26, I repeat TWENTY SIX POUNDS. When normally one full sized pigment is £17. This is such a good offer for money as even though they aren't full sized, the chances of running out of a MAC pigment is slim! 
Ok enough rambling, lets show you the set!

Ok, so, the set comes in this lovely glitter effect box with a silhouette on top. Really lovely as far as boxes go and I think it would be great just  to keep some stuff in. The pink and rose set comes with a grey/black lid.

In my opinion, the colours in this set are just stunning and will be gorgeous on all skin tones. Using this for a smokey eye in the winter will be something else and I am so excited to use them. The MAC site lists the colours (from L-R) as Whisper Pink, Tan, Rose, Reigning Riches (the glitter) and then Heritage Rouge.

As it is starting to get dark at like 2pm here in Scotland I found it really difficult to get a good pic/swatch for you guys as the lighting is always off! Hopefully you can see just how stunning these pigments are. & for that price can you really go wrong? I think the 2nd is the most beautiful and think it will be amazing either all over the lid and blended itself or with all the others. & the first one will  be a gorgeous highlight! As you can probably tell, I am very excited by these pigments! 

Do any of you guys have these sets? UGH I should have got them all! WHY!! Still time though right guys? Let us know if you have picked up one of the MAC holiday sets and how you are getting on with them? 

Until next time guys!

The Christmas Tag!

Just like Slade, I really do wish it was Christmas everyday.
It is without doubt my favourite time of the year!
I love all the Christmas lights, the copious amounts of Christmas songs on the radio and of course ELF!!!

Whilst writing my last post, another tag (sorry!) I decided I wanted to do a Christmas tag!
I found this one on Fee's blog. You can check out her post doing the Christmas tag here.  

1. What is your favourite Christmas Movie/s?
Elf, Home Alone, Miracle on 34th Street and It's A Wonderful Life.

2. Do you open your presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?
I've always been allowed to open one, when we get home from Midnight Mass at church, but "Santa" hasn't been then, so it's normally a present from my gran or a friend! All the other presents get opened once I've been to bed and slept for a few hours! I'm usually too excited to sleep for an extended period once we are home from church.

3. Do you have a favourite Christmas memory?
Just spending time with my family.

4. Favourite festive food?
Roast potatoes made by my Gran. I'm such a fussy eater, so end up having Chicken Nuggets as my meal at Christmas, so the only thing I eat of the Christmas table is the potatoes!

5. Favourite Christmas gift?
A little fawn, ornament that opens up from my Gran. It has a gold love heart chain round its neck which is engraved with my name, and when you open it, it plays you are my sunshine. I burst into tears when I opened it. I love it so so much. I couldn't even thank her over the phone because I was crying so hard. Haha. 

6. Favourite Christmas scent?
Christmas Cookie by Yankee Candle.

7. Do you have any Christmas Eve traditions?
My family have a Christmas Eve tradition, where we go to my aunt's house on Christmas Eve, where we have Chinese food, before heading to Church. It's my favourite part of Christmas.

8. What tops your tree?
We always have our wee angel at the top of our tree!

9. As a kid what was the one (crazy, wild, extravagant) gift you always asked for but never received?
Probably... A puppy or something along those lines!

10. What's the best part about Christmas for you?
Having my family altogether in the one place, where everyone is happy! :-)

What is your favourite things about Christmas!
Do this tag and let us know!

My First Time!

Hey guys! So I thought it had been a while since I had done a tag post and if you have been following this blog for a while, you will know how much I love tags! This one may sound a little 'saucy' from the title but it is basically just a series of questions on the first time I did lots of different things, so lets get into it!

1) Do you still talk to your first love?
Nope, not at all! My first 'love' and I broke up when we were 15/16 so about 5/6 years ago! No hard feelings or anything, we just don't!

2) What was your first job?
My first job was as a Sales Assistant in Debenhams, menswear to be precise! I hated it, my boss was horrid and everyone else was about 5 years older than me at least!

3) What was your first car?
My first car I actually just replaced! I had a lovely little red corsa which I was completely in love with. His name was Gino and I still miss him!

4) Who was the first person who texted you today?
Sam, just saying morning!

5) Who was the first person you thought of this morning?
I think it was Sam as he was starting his new job today!

6) Who was your first grade teacher?
I think it was a lovely woman called Mrs Semple, I'm not sure if that is right though..

7) Where did you go on your first airplane ride?
Again, I'm not sure, I'll need to double check with my mum! I think it might have been to New York as I know I went when I was a baby!

8) Who was your best friend and do you still talk?
My first best friend was a girl called Nichola, we lived in the same street and grew up like sisters, always at each other's houses. I do still talk to her!

9) Where was your first sleepover?
Probably at my big cousin Nicola's house. We always had sleepovers growing up. She's my true best friend.

10) Who was the first person you talked to today?
My Mum, I think, talking about my uni graduation!

11) Who's wedding were you in for the first time?
I was a flower girl at my aunt's wedding when I was like four. Also one of the few weddings I've been too.

12) What was the first thing you done this morning?
I know it sounds really bad but the first thing I done was, text Sam back and then roll over and go back to sleep!

13) What was the first concert you ever went to?
Need to double check with the mother but I am pretty sure it was S Club 7!

14) First broken bone?
Even though I was a very adventurous child, I've actually never broke any bones.

15) First piercing?
Just my earlobes! When I was about 9. I begged for them to be done for months.

16) First foreign country?
If I am right about the plane journey then my first foreign country was America.

17) First movie you remember seeing in theaters? 
I think I have wrote about this on here before.. I know I had seen movies before but the one I always remember is See Spot Run. I have absolutely no idea why!

18) When was your first detention?
I actually never had a detention in school! (loooooserrr!)

19) Who was your first roommate?
I have yet to move out so I haven't had my first roommate yet.

20) What was the first lesson you ever took?
I used to do a lot of gymnastics and dancing when I was really young. I can't remember which one was first though. I did quit both as well!

21) Who was the first beauty related person you watched on YouTube?
Blair Fowler aka - JuicyStar07. I was obsessed with Blair a few years ago. I think it may be because she was one of the first beauty related people I had seen on YouTube.

So that is my take on the My First Time tag! I tag all of you guys to do it! It was a fun one!

Until next time guys!
