Mac marine life swatch, What's in my bag and Topshop Beauty

Hi, a few of you has requested a swatch of Mac to the beach Marine Life high light powder, so here it is! This is what my marine life looks like after a few uses. The gold on my seahorse has completely dissapeared.


This are swatches of the two colours seperately:


and the two colours combined:

Another request was for me to do a post on what's in my bag. First of all, I would like to say..my bag is not a fake. I've had a helpful comment telling my bag was definately a fake. Thank you for your concern, it was very sweet of you to worry that my husband got ripped off. He bought it from Harvey Nichols, an upmarket department store chain that rivals Selfridges and Harrods. I doubt that Harvey Nichols would sell fake bags, and would be angry if they did. Anyway, my husband has kept the receipt incase I did not like the style of colour and would want to exchange it for another bag, so if it is indeed a fake, I can return it.

The bag is from their new collection of rose coloured studded bags, hance why it may look different from conventional Balenciaga bags.

Anyway, onto what is in my bag. Sadly, I don't carry interesting stuff. These are the everyday items I carry with me in my bag:


My phone, keys, wallet from Ted Baker, my favourite sunnies: Ray Ban aviators, Tiffany pen that was a viva passing gift from my husband, Eve Lom kiss mix lip balm (the BEST lip balm I have ever tried -and I've tried lots!), bobby Brown concealer (for my terrible under eye dark circles), Bobbi Brown lipstick in Rose (my favourite everyday colour), and an Aveda hand cream.

Topshop has recently released their new makeup line. I couldn't resist getting a few things:


I bought their skin glow in Light. Here's a swatch of it on my hand. It's an illuminator with a pink sheen for, and it gives a nice glowy look.

I also bought their duo eyeshadow in Rocky Road

Fairly neutral colours, but very pretty:

Lastly, I bought their cream blush in Neon Rose

a bright peachy pink.

  1. I can't believe ppl said your bag is fake!! I'm so offended by that. You're so right to prove them wrong, they're just jealous that you have a nice Bal bag =)

    Love the Marine Life, but I need to save money...

  2. I'm still kinda of new to some of the make up, but the MAC Marine High Light Powder to me looks more like a blush as well. What exactly does the high light powder does?

  3. Marine Life looks wonderful! I'm lemming for so many blushes from MAC recently :[

    Your Ted Baker wallet is super cute! *loves it*

  4. I'm not sure why MAC even called this a highlighter. It's super pigmented and more like a blush!
