MAC Palette - Month One

Hi Beauty Lovers!

I hope you all had a great Christmas and getting ready to have a great New Year. I am so sorry for the lack of posts recently, I unfortunately do not have the type of job which I get the bank holidays off, so I've been trying to juggle Christmas, work, family and friends. But I have a few days off now so I'm back on track with blogging and wanted to share with you my amazingly pretty MAC palette.

For those of you who follow me on Instagram, you will have a sneaky peek of this palette all boxed up, that's because it was bought super early and I couldn't have it until Christmas. Well today is the unveiling of said palette and a nosey at the colours I chose.

I must say it was so hard not to fill this straight away, especially when Joe (my boyfriend) and the MAC girls were all encouraging me to, but I resisted and I'm going to add more each month, roll on payday!

I really want this palette to be filled with colours that I typically wouldn't choose, I seriously must own every neutral shade known to man. So I going to fill this with more experimental colours...wish me luck!

 This is a gorgeous maroon red shade, it has little pieces of glitter in, as you can see in the swatch photograph. I loved this shade because its a pretend neutral, it looks a deep earthy brown in the pan, but when applied its a gorgeous reddy colour.

On first impressions you might think this shade is a flat boring slate colour, but in actual fact its a shimmery pearlescent colour. It was so so hard to photograph this colour because when it catches the light it transforms to a grey/lilac colour. It has shimmer to it, so really looks gorgeous.
Pink Freeze
I bought this colour to use as a highlighter more than a shadow, and it works fabulously. It looks white in the photographs but its actually a very pale pink, when applied on top of Benefit's High Beam it looks amazing. This also has a shimmer to it, so look gorgeous when it catches the light.

So these are my first additions to my palette, I'll be sharing each colour I purchase each month. I'm open to suggestions so if you have a favourite colour/colours let me know.
