New in from MAC 
Eyes on MAC - Times Nine Palettes

It's a collection of 9 eye-shadows that all go really well together and offer different finishes from matte to satin and frost. 
So you've the Navy, Amber, Purple and Burgundy palettes to choose from. 

Now a quick note, looking at the price £30 for 9 MAC eye-shadows is an absolute bargain, it's only when it arrived that I realized they are smaller than usual. In fact all 9 fit in the same size casing as a 4 shadow. Still provides excellent value and such a great space saver. with a delicious selection of shades to play with I am one happy bunny!

So I chose the Purples, no surprise there... as if you don't know already purple happens to be my favourite colour! But not only that, I tend to stick to browns and more neutral shadows. Urban decay naked palette and several mac shades such as wood-winked, satin taupe all that glitters... the list goes on but you get the jist they're all similar shades.
So I wanted to step out of my comfort zone with a pop of colour and what better time than Spring!!
