Selfridges haul!

So last week I was in Cairo, it was the last night before I was travelling home and I decided to go and eat in the hotels Japanese restaurant.  I never eat in restaurants when I am away, I prefer room service in the privacy of my own room-but I was feeling couped up and so my new Ipad mini and I went off in search of sushi.

The meal took so long to arrive that 2 glasses of Egyptian wine later I'd spent a small fortune on Selfridges website on my latest essential make up needs!

And it arrived yesterday in Dubai.....

Ooooh Selfridges,,,,,

What's inside? Open it open it!!

Selfridges haul

You must have been living under a rock if you love make-up and haven't heard of the Archie's Girls launch.  Now whilst it is still to launch on Mac's UK website, it is exclusive at Selfridges.

There are tons and tons of swatches online of these so I'll just post what I picked up without too much detail.

Pearlglide Intense Eyeliner in Black Swan and Pearlmatte face powder in Flatter Me

I love the Pearlglide liners from Mac-they're so pigmented and soft.  Black Swan is jet black with the subtlest shimmer to it.  I'll use the face powder as a blush-I am utterly unable to resist a peachy coral blush!

Betty lipstick in Betty Bright and Veronica lip glass in Strawberry Malt

Nars The Happening Palette

I first read about this palette on The Sunday Girl blog and immediately thought 'I want it!'

The limited edition palette contains Orgasm blush and Laguna bronzer-two of Nars biggest selling products.  It also contains 4 eyeshadows-all with subtle shimmer-a shimmery taupe, brown with gold shimmer, aubergine with gold shimmer and deep taupe infused with gold.  I can see me getting a lot of use out of this palette and it'll also be great for travelling with.  I have noticed that my Laura Mercier eye colour in African Violet is almost an exact dupe for the aubergine colour.

Clarins Rouge Eclat from the Spring 2013 range

Clarins Rouge Eclat gold packaging

I love Clarins lipsticks!  And when I saw swatches of these 2 from the Spring 2013 range popping up online I knew they'd find a home in my collection!

Estee Lauder Pure Colour Stay On Shadow Paint

Love this new cream/mousse eyeshadow from Estee Lauder.  The texture is so light, its almost feels like dipping your finger into chocolate mousse!  Very easy to spread and blend, I love this shimmery bronze colour.
