MAC Haul Again... oops

Hey Lovelies,
So a while back, I put a request on the MAC website to tell me when one item came back into stock. This week, I got the email to tell me it was FINALLY back in stock. So of course I had to buy it (and some other things... I can't help its an addiction). Here is my haul...



It's only 5 things, well actually 4 things and a gift of a very lovely friend. Let's do the gift first. My friend, who sometimes pops on my blog for a mooch, saw my MAC lust list and decided to treat me to a present, this was the empty large palette. It was a surprise present that I didn't ask her to get but she got a massive hug for her troubles.
So of course when I was placing my order, the first thing that went in my basket was the 15 hole palette insert. I mean it would have been rude not to wouldn't it?



Now, the "more exciting" purchases, I treated myself to two new eyeshadows and a new lipstick. These three were all on my lust list and were purely ordered so I could get the free delivery (wink wink). I treated myself to the lipstick, Craving and the eyeshadows, All that Glitters and Gleam. I also had a little Strobe Cream Sample (which was a nice surprise).





Swatch time, I think. Eyeshadows first...




All that Glitters is described as a "Beige with gold pearl" and Gleam is described as "Barely Pinked Gold". As you can see, both of these descriptions are quite reasonable. I can see me using all that glitters a lot as a base colour alongside another colour.


Craving reminds me as a slightly pinkier version of Brick-o-la. It is described by MAC as a "burst of plum". I'm excited to try this out properly. 
I shall leave you with a picture of my new palette. I have ideas on how to fill it completely but I shall wait a bit.


Till Next Time,
Clare xxx
