Hi guys, I have just returned from holiday in Mexico so been a bit absent in the blogging world! I'm going to be doing a holiday heroes post this week, just going through some products I used while away which really helped with the condition of my skin and hair whilst in scorching temperatures!!!!
Anyway apart from picking up some Ghost perfume at the airport, I have been been totally makeup purchase free for the last 2 weeks!!!! (shock horror!!) So when I got back I readily started reading all you lovely ladies posts to see whats new and what I have missed out on! One product that caught my eye was a post Laura Lollipop26 did with regard to the new range of blushers from Me Me Me cosmetics.
They are boxed and look exactly like the Benefit ones and after looking at her review and swatches I decided to pick one up in my lunch hour today. The one I picked up was in the colour Rouge which is a Deep Coral shade, they do have a shade called Coral but this was more pink toned. The pigmentation in these blushes are really quite good and definitely a contender for the Benefit alternatives. I have a love hate relationship with Benefit, to me a lot of there products are overpriced, and they seem to base more emphasis on the packaging than the quality of whats inside it! The fact that Me Me ME have basically mimicked the blusher boxes for a third of the price, to me just goes to show Benefit need to up there game!!!
Oh and theres a mirror in the lid!! all for £6.49 (on offer in Superdrug £1.50 off normal price right now)
I really like the Bronze shade shown in my pic here, and think I will pick that up too!! Anyone else tried these out??

In The Groove - Eyeshadow Trio
This was by far my favourite of the eye shadows, I steer towards these pinky burgundy tones, there so easy to wear, I'm glad MAC are doing the trio eye shadows, makes them much better value for money, for £15 I think these are great. The only other one I would have possibly picked up was Soften The Mood but I was being restrained!!...lol
I Like It Like That - Cremesheen Lipstick
This is one of those colours I dithered over for ages, it's a really lovely bluetoned pink, and something which I don't have in my collection, It is however very bright and I had visions of my disaster with MAC Chatterbox which I loved but I just looks awful on me. But after swatching them both together in the MAC shop this is a much more cooler pink and having got it home and tried it, I think its going to become a favourite. Jazzed was also really nice but reminded me of Dressmaker from a previous collection which I have, so didn't pick that one up.
These are truly awful swatches!! I have a decent camera but my pictures always look rubbish!?!
I'm sure you have all seen thousands of these swatches anyway, but from the top In The Groove Eyeshadow Trio..........Middle Stereo Rose MSF and then bottom I Like It Like That Lippie!!
All in all This is one of my favourite MAC collections this year. So did you pick anything up?.....And what do you think?.....x

So from left to right MAC Vegas Volt.......MAC Dressmaker........MAC Jist.......Rimmel Coral......Maybelline Ambre Rose.
Vegas Volt and Jist have definitely become summer favourites and I wear them regularly, the Rimmel Coral is really easy to wear if you don't want an intense Coral, and Ambre Rose is a good go to every day nude. I don't tend to wear lip liner I prefer a more casual lip look and often just pat the colour on with my finger.
So whats your favourite summer Lipsticks...?..x

Silver Angel Wing earrings Top Shop....Love these!!! cant really say anymore than that!
Charm necklace Top Shop was really drawn to this, quite delicate and really liked the words and that fact that its silver and Gold so can wear with either gold or silver bracelets etc....
Black BOW ring Top Shop, thought this was really cute I like my jewellery to be a bit different, I'm after the red LIPS ring I have seen in a few magazines but cant seem to get hold of one...:(
Anyway hope you like these bits I cant wait to wear them...
