Mac Splurge!

I’m sure the majority of you will have seen mine and M’s tweets a few weeks ago when we both went to Mac to have our make up done before we went out for my birthday.

We were super excited to have our make up done for us by a professional and also to spend some hard earned cash on some more amazing Mac products.

I picked up a few things but these lipsticks were top of my list and I have been wearing them both non stop.


I picked up Coral Bliss to wear out on the night and Vegas Volt as I’d heard so much about it.

Coral Bliss is shown below:


I already own Creme Cup which is a dusky pink nude, and Costa Chic which is a frosted orange colour and I was looking for a corally nude for the summer months.

Coral Bliss answers this perfectly, it’s a beautiful coral colour that is perfect for day time, evening, work etc and will be great when the weather finally improves!


Here are a few pictures from the night out where you can see my make up and the lipstick!


Here’s some close ups of my eye make up.

I absolutely loved what they did with it, a nude smokey eye with green smudged underneath as a flash of colour.



I wish someone could do my make up like this for me all the time!!

I learnt a lot in the makeover and always come away with some new tips to try.

So back to the lipsticks….



Vegas Volt is a gorgeous red orange colour that really suits pale skin tones. I’m sure it looks great with tanned skin also (what doesn’t!) but it sort of ‘pops’ with paler skin and I’ve seen many other blog posts with gorgeous pictures so I knew I had to have it.


You can see what I mean by the photos below, the colour is so lovely and bright but isn’t too over the top.
I’ve worn it out to the pub, nights out and shopping in the day time and it’s a great all rounder for any occasion where a full red lip would be too much.



I’m so happy with these purchases. Both wear really nicely and feel moisturising as they are both creamy.

What are your favourite Mac lipsticks? Would you choose something similar?
What would you buy at Mac if you had the choice?

    Love the makeup they did for you 🙂 Vegas Volt looks lovely on you too 🙂 I had a MAC makeup lesson a couple of months ago in the freestanding store in the Capital Centre, it was amazing 😀
