Mac Pay Day Order | Featuring A Fantasy of Flowers


Hey cherubs.
Just a quick post today to share with you my recent order that I made from Mac. 
After three phonecalls and a series of emails following a missing lipstick on delivery (who'd have thought that'd be so difficult to sort?!) I've finally got my full order and a replacement for the lipstick that was whole reason for the order! 

Mac collections normally don't strike up much interest with me, but there was a certain lipstick shade from the current A Fantasy of Flowers collection that caught my eye and I mentally logged it as a 'must have'.


The shade is Dreaming Dahlia and it's a lustre finish lipstick.
On first look it looks like a similar shade to Costa  Chic (without the frosty shimmer) but it's a lot more sheer in formula and has a red tinge to the coral colour. Such an ideal easy breezy lipstick for spring days! Sorry there's no swatch of it here, but I'm hoping to get a full post on the lipstick up before the end of the week.

Lipstick - Dreaming Dahlia | £15.00

To fill out my order, I decided to get my first Mac palette and fill it with two of the most popular eyeshadow shades ever: Woodwinked and All That Glitters. Find me a Mac fanatic that doesn't own these two neutral shades! They're lovely and they look so pretty sitting neatly inside the quad. 


Mac Pro Palette (Quad) | £6.50
Eyeshadow Refills: Woodwinked and All The Glitters | £10.00 each

I've got two more eyeshadows in a drawer that I can now depot and add to this palette (Honey Lust and Bronze) so I can have my very first full Mac quad! Can you believe I've never had one before now? Hopefully having 4 key shades together will help me to get more use out of them - the two singles tend to be quite neglected at the moment!


And finally, I don't know if this is standard procedure or not as I've only ever ordered Mac products online from Debenhams before, not the Mac site, but with my original order there was a small Mac Cleanse Off Oil in the box too. It might've been because my lipstick was missing without explanation (??) or just a freebie; who knows! I'll happily try it though as it often receives positive feedback and I'm new to Mac's skincare. 

So, that's my little order from Mac.
Do you have any of these items?

Thanks for reading!

  4. That's kind of them to have given you the cleanse off oil free of charge - I've never tried any of MAC's skin care either, would be good to know what that's like! Really want to have a little splurge on their new collection too, pay day really is lethal haha!
