My MAC Eyeshadow Palette...Help?!

Hello lovelies :)
I am in need of some advice this evening! I recently got my very first MAC eyeshadow palette as a very lovely gift from my boyfriend along with 4 eyeshadows I had been eyeing (no pun intended!) for a while. I have since filled it with what I would call my 'essentials'...but I am now stuck.
It's not that I can't think of any colours that I want, I am actually spoilt for choice. I have no idea where to go next.

This is what I have so far...
(No idea why they are in this way, it made some sort of sence in my mind however it looks abit insane since it isn't filled yet!)

Top row: Shroom, Omega, Satin Taupe
Middle Row: Cork, Copperplate
Bottom Row: Corduroy, Embark, Sketch, Carbon

It seems very dull at the moment because most of them are matte, I'm just not happy with it.
The colours I am thinking of are;
Ricepaper
Patina
Sable
Woodwinked
Mulch
And some sort of dark grey, maybe Scene or Smut.


What are your must have MAC eyeshadows?
I am in need of some inspiration!
Looking forward to seeing your responses :)

Thanks for reading,

Recent Favourites.

Hey everyone :) Hope you're all doing well.
I thought about doing a february favourites but since I haven't done a monthly favourites for a while I thought I would just do a sort of catch up favourites. All of these products I have used religiously since I got them, literally daily without fail!




Neutrogena 3in1 Daily Cleansing Lotion
I love this stuff. I rediscovered this recently and had to get myself a new bottle. I use it as a toner after I have cleansed and it really gets all those last bits of makeup that you didn't even know where there off and leaves the skin super clean. It is quite strong but it is working wonders for my awkward skin at the moment so I'm pleased :D

MAC Pro Longwear Concealer NW20You may remember me having a slight fall out with the Pro Longwear range a while back, but I have since returned to this little gem and I am not regretting it! It remains the best concealer I have ever used and that is quite a statement!


MAC Harmony Blush

I bought this after reading on many blogs that this was one of the best contour colours around. It is a really nice subtle contour when you use it with a light hand and the right brush, which brings me on to...

Sigma Tapered Face Brush F25
I've wanted a few new brushes from Sigma for a while and this was one of them. I absolutally love it. It's so soft, like with all my Sigma brushes, and works perfectly to create a natural looking contour.


 







MAC Mighty Aphrodite Blush Duo
Even though I haven't had this long, I couldn't leave it out! It is gorgeous. On me it is the perfect natural blush with just a hint of sheen to make your cheeks look glowy but not overly so. I can just tell this is going to be the blush I reach for all summer!












L-R Harmony, Mighty Aphrodite Light Side, Mighty Aphrodite Dark Side, Mighty Aphrodite Both.
In this swatch Harmony looks sort of overly orangey but it's honestly not in the flesh!

The Tangle Teezer
The other picture for this seems to have disappeared, oops, but you can get the jist from the first picture! This is an ingenious little device which is so simple yet extremely effective. I remember when this appeared on Dragons Den and I was dying to try it then, but since it didn't get investment I thought that was never going to happen. However a friend of mine was raving about hers a few months ago and I had to get me one! They are now stocked in boots and several hair dressers near me. It is a specially designed brush (doesn't sound exciting, I know!) that completely gets rid of any knots and tangles in your hair and makes it so much more managable, which, for thick haired girls like me, is a godsend! I will do a full review if anyone is interested.

Thats all from me for now!
