Here's a simple look I did a few weeks ago using the newest products I've acquired from the MAC Rose Romance collection, namely Silverthorn eyeshadow and Rose Romance lipstick. Its really simple as I did this rushing out the door -lol. Well anyway, hope you like it. =)

All products by MAC unless stated otherwise ^_^


I applied on Soft Ochre paint pot as an eyeshadow base on the lid, and applied Silverthorn eyeshadow with a 217 brush.
I used Urban Decay 24/7 Liner in Zero to line the just the upper lash line.
I then used Max Factor False Lash Effect mascara on the upper and lower lashes.
Emote blush was lightly used to contour the cheek bones.
Lips were Rose Romance lipstick topped with Strawberry Blonde lipglass (from the Brunette, Blonde, Redhead collection).


So there you go. :) A really simple look, very wearable and not over-the-top. Hope you liked it! ♥

Exams finish on thursday (I can't wait!), and so I'll start posting more after then :) Can't wait to check out the new MAC collection after that too! Wish me luck guys :)

LOOK: Silverthorn + Strawberry Blonde

Here's what A Rose Romance lipstick looks on my lips!


It's a simple shot with nothing else on my face but Olay moisturiser, Urban Decay 24/7 liner in Bourbon on upper and lower lash lines, and Max Factor False Lash Effect Mascara.

As you can see, this lipstick is a nice feminine shade of pink. Reminds me of a cross between the bright pink Lovelorn and a more mauvey pink Sweetie lipstick. It's also a 'Lustre' type MAC lipstick and therefore its very creamy and glides on the lips well.

It's very wearable, and I suggest you check it out! :)

A Rose Romance Lipstick Face Shot!


I picked up a few things from the MAC Rose Romance collection today. I thought the collection was very feminine, and very pretty. :) I only bought 1 lipstick and 1 eyeshadow since I already asked my dad to get me a few things from America as my family is spending their vacation there. I asked my dad to get me A Way To Love lipstick and Summer Rose beauty powder - I don't know when I will be able to get these goodies, but I can't wait to! Haha :) Well anyway, continue to read to find out my lil haul. :)

Initially, my lil haul list comprised of A Rose Romance lipstick, Steal My Heart lipglass and Fix+ Rose.

I loved A Rose Romance lipstick when I first saw it, and more when I tried it on so I got that one. I topped it up with Steal My Heart lipglass, and that combo was really pretty. ♥ However, looking at it on the tube, it reminded me a lot of Strawberry Blonde lipglass from the Brunette Blonde Redhead collection (which I already have) so I decided to skip it.


I glanced at the eyeshadows, I thought they were quite boring - except for Silverthorn. Based on swatches already on the internet, I thought it would be like Electra eyeshadow from the permanent line, which I have. However, seeing it in person, I thought it was a blueish-silver that's really pretty! I haven't seen anything like it so I took that one too. Creme de Violet eyeshadow was pretty too, but that's in the permanent line so I'll skip for now.


I was curious about Fix+ Rose since I have never tried the original Fix+ either. The MA offered to spritz some of it on my face, and it was immediately a no for me. I thought my face felt sticky after that - and I don't think she spritzed too much either. I'll keep thinking about it though.. might do well for foiling eyeshadows. What do you think?

Well anyway, so I got A Rose Romance lipstick and Silverthorn eyeshadow. Here are swatches of them! A Rose Romance on the left and Silverthorn on the right. :)


I hope this post was useful!

MAC Rose Romance Haul + Swatches!!


I did this look the night I went out with my bf. I wanted my eyes to match my top which was navy blue with some gold foiled words on it. What do you think?

All products by MAC unless stated otherwise ^_^


I used Soft Ochre paint pot on the whole lid as a base. For eyeshadows, I used Femme Fi on the browbone, Stately Black on the crease and Goldmine on the lid. I lined my eyes with Zero Urban Decay eyeliner, and used Max Factor False Lash Effect mascara. Emote blush was used to contour, and Fun n Games blush on cheek apples. On lips, I had Oak lip pencil to line my lips and Naked Space lipglass to fill.



Do you like it? ♥
