I love to treat myself. Like I'm the sort of person who when buying presents for other people, I have to buy one for myself too - any excuse to spend money really. So of course, making it to the end of my first year of university is a good enough excuse as any to go on a little spending spree...

I hopped on a train to Brighton on my own and ended up doing a lot of damage - but hey, I'm off to Greece in a few weeks and was in desperate need of some summer gear okay? The trip also included me finally adding to my 15 pan palette from Mac, the last shade I picked up was Amber Lights and that was nearly a year ago. 

I only intended on picking up one shade but ended walking out with two, naturally the ladies who work in mac are very persuasive. I actually wanted something a bit more 'out there' in terms of colour as I have a fairly neutral range of colours however I'm a creature of habit and never stray to far from the warm orangey hues. 

I ended picking up Antiqued - a rich, warm, smokey copper that looks insane with blue eyes and pairs beautifully with Texture in the crease and Swiss Chocolate smoked out into the outer corner -  two shades I already own. Then she used Nylon in my inner corner and I have no highlight shades in my palette so decided to buy this too. It's a super reflective, shimmery shade that I've used everyday since. 

I desperately want to pick up Copper Sparkle pigment next.

What are your favourite mac shadows?
