LOOK: Sweet and Golden with MAC Colour 4 Eyeshadow Quad

Photobucket

As requested by lovely reader Yumiko, I made a makeup look using the new products I got, which I reviewed in this post. I used the MAC Colour 4 eyeshadow quad, the Benefit Hoola bronzer, and the MAC Ladyblush blush on lips and cheeks. I hope you like this look!

I think this eyeshadow quad is pretty good. It is comprised of versatile neutrals with very good blendable (but all shimmery) finishes. However, for myself, its not really the best quad MAC has ever released. For you MAC fanatics out there, which is your favourite pre-made MAC eyeshadow quad? x


And... What do you think? Would you wear this look? ♥


I wore this look out to a dinner date with my bf. He really liked my makeup. He said that I 'look really sweet'. .. It must have been the MAC Ladyblush blush on my cheeks! Ha ha. I will definitely use that blush more ;)

And since we met up pretty early (around 530PM), we decided to go to Costa for some coffee and cupcakes. I let him do the ordering, and since it was pre-dinner, I just wanted to share food with him so I don't lose my appetite. To my surprise, he picked the coffee I have been meaning to try for a while - Hazelnut coffee. It was pretty good! But its not as good as the Creme Brulee latte that Costa used to serve in Christmastime though; I miss that so much.

The bf also ordered a Black Forest cupcake, which was so good yet sinfully rich! I love my sweet fatty foods though (haha, but I do feel a bit of guilt). I think I might order it again next time :)

Do you go to cafes much? What's your favourite Coffee type/cupcake combo? ♥

  1. I would totally wear this look! I am a neutral hog, I think to the extreme that it's a bad thing because I never use my other eyeshadows!

  9. I would totally wear this look! I really like the blush on your lips, looks gorgeous! I don't have a favorite MAC quad, I prefer the palettes with 6 colors because they give you more options!
