A deep purple smokey eye look  I created using the MAC Spoiled Rich Quad from the Archie’s Girls collection.

Earlier this month MAC launched their latest collection which has been inspired by the leading female characters the famous comic book series, Archie’s Girls. In the comic book, Betty and Veronica are two best friends who are polar opposites but are both madly in love with Archie. MAC have cleverly created two separate lines in the collection to reflect each of the girls personalities.

The Pearl Matte Face Powder ,Veronica’s blush and Spoiled Rich Quad were the products that I picked up from the collection because I knew I would get a lot of use from them. I am absolutely obsessed with the Pearl Matte Powder and Veronica’s blush duo because its such a versatile product that can be used to highlight, define your cheekbones and as an all over face powder. As far as MAC palette’s go, because they are so rare to find, I just had to have one and what I love about the Spoiled Rich quad is how pigmented the colours and the beautiful matt finish all the colours have. In the picture above, you can see that I have created a really pretty, deep purple smokey eye which is one of many looks this palette allows me to create.

NWB BEAUTY REVIEW: MAC CANDY YUM YUM LIPSTICK REVIEW

candy yumMAC Candy Yum Yum lipstick  is probably the most buzzed about lipstick in the beauty world at the moment. This stunning new MAC lipstick shade is described as ‘bright pink’ with a matte finish. In my opinion it is like a mix between other MAC classic shades,Up the Amp and Girl About Town. What I love about the MAC Candy Yum Yum lipstick in particularly is the fact that is its matte texture, which allows this gorgeous lip colour to stay on all day long.I would definitely recommend this as a must have Spring/Summer shade as it looks absolutely fabulous on all skin tones, whether worn in its full glory or dabbed on for a more lived in effect. This lipstick is also vanilla-scented which also adds another touch of comfort whilst wearing this lipstick loo. MAC Candy Yum Yum is now available in stores nationwide and here on the MAC website.

NWB BEAUTY HAUL: MUST HAVE LIPSTICK SHADES FOR AUTUMN/FALL

A selection of hand picked lipsticks for the Autumn/Fall including MAC, Chanel, Tom Ford and Rimmel.

THE AUTUMN/FALL NUDE AND PINK SHADES

MAC Patisserie, MAC Snob, Mac Up The Amp, Tom Ford Warm Sable and Mac Chatterbox (from to left to bottom right)

With Pink and Nude shades this season its all about the muted look so to get the best results out these lipsticks pair them with really natural eye makeup. MAC’s Snob and Tom Ford’s sable a two great shades that are very easy to wear on a day to day. MAC’s Up The  Amp is a cult classic and must have shade for every fashionista as it looks amazing on all skintones.

THE AUTUMN/FALL PURPLE SHADES

NWB loves purple this season. It’s all about those dark gothic tones. So ladies be brave and wear MAC’s Cyber on night out with the girls and MAC’s Odyssey during the day for a more subtle purple lip look. Purple lipstick was all over the catwalk early this year and is bound to be a huge trend this Autumn/ Fall.

THE AUTUMN/FALL RED SHADES

MAC Diva, MAC Ruby Woo, Tom Ford Scarlet Rouge and Chanel Gabrielle.

MAC’s Diva is definitely my favourite red shade this season. Its dark and is the perfect lipstick to achieve that Vamp look which is so on trend this season. The matte texture of this lipstick also means that it lasts throughout the day and is just really easy to wear everyday. I’m also loving Tom Ford’s Scarlet Rouge lipstick at the moment. It’s a perfect red orange which takes from day to night seamlessly. And of course you can’t go without MAC’s Ruby Woo this season because it is the perfect bright red lipstick (perfect for creating a pin up look) which in my opinion every girl should own!

NWB BEST LUXURY BUY: TOM FORD VIOLET BLONDE PERFUME

In most instances judging a book by its cover is wrong. But not with Mr Ford and his army or luxury products. This perfume smells as divine as the packaging looks. Sweet but musky this perfume is most definitely extremely sophisticated and sexy. Although it does take a few minutes for the scent to develop when it does the results are amazing.

The great thing is that a few sprays is more than enough for it to last all day long.For everything Tom Ford cosmetic and fragrance related visit this website.

NWB BEAUTY REVIEW: NARS HANAMICHI EYESHADOW PALETTE

NARS HANAMICHI EYESHADOW PALETTE AND PACKAGING

This NARS Hanamichi eyeshadow palette is certainly not your average eyeshadow quad. The term Hanamichi is a Japanese word that translates as ‘flower path’ which is what has inspired the unqiue design of this palette. Retailing at 45 pounds, this palette is a luxury beauty buy but definitely a product worth investing in.  Expect highly pigmented shades,an amazing mini NARS application brush and great packaging.

Swatches red, gold, highlight white and black

It includes three main eyeshadow colours (gold,black and red) as well as a white higlight colour which are great for creating a range of different looks great for both the day and the night. I absolutely adore this palette and it is one of my favorite eyeshadows that I reach for on a daily basis.
