MAC goodies from a friend

I ordered MAC Lavender Whip lipstick from Winnie at "All Styled Up" a few weeks ago, and she was super nice to include some extras in there for me! She hits up the MAC Warehouse sales in Toronto every few months, and I always buy stuff from her. Thank you Winnie for sending these to me! :)

Here is Lavender Whip in all it's glory. It's a cremesheen finish, pastel purple shade. It's totally unique and I love shades like this, although they are more for fun, and definitely not for everyday wear. Plus it was limited edition, so you can't get it anymore.

She also included Roman Holiday Dazzleglass, which is packed full of pretty shimmers that I tried to capture in the picture here. It's like a peach/brown golden colour, really pretty.

Here is a swatch of the two lip products. Lavender Whip is quite opaque and smooth on the lips. Roman Holiday is quite nice too, gotta experiment a bit with this over some of my lipsticks.

She also included Nocturnelle Nail polish in there, which is a black jelly, supposed to be really good. And a MAC pencil sharpener too. :) Thanks again Winnie, if you ever need to unload some MAC items, you know who to contact! :)

you're welcome !
i'd like to see a nail swatch of the nail polish on you!
i can never wear black nail polish, or i'll look super weird!!! that's why i had to give it to someone who lives nail polishes, although unsure if you would like it LOL.. you'll make it work =P

roman holiday is too sparkly for my type of lipgloss...i havent used it over any lipstick i have yet but i should try !

love to see the lavender whip on your lips! to not make it so purply, i used a baby pink lipgloss over it. another way, i only put one layer on the bottom lip and move it around (god my vocabulary is terrible, i cant think of that word for what im trying to say!!)...

I have to agree with you, Justine. Winnie is a true sweetheart. I wish we would have MAC warehouse sales here on the West Coast =[
Roman Holiday is gorgeous looking. I think that it'll make a very pretty neutral nude look.
I found that the Seduce blush from Fyrinnae, when mixed with a clear gloss or lipbalm, gives me a similar looking color to Lavendar Whip.
