Follow on Bloglovin



If you're an avid reader of blogs like myself, you'll understand how hard it is to keep all of your favourite blogs organised- I've read through a blog many a time which I loved, but had no means of following- so I eventually lose track and forget about it.

A handy solution to this is Bloglovin! This nifty little website keeps all of your favourite blogs together on one page, no matter what the host/platform is. It's helped me keep track of my favourite blogs for ages now and means I never forget about any hidden gems, too.

You can follow DEATH BY LIPSTICK on Bloglovin by clicking the widget on the sidebar or on the picture above.

Happy Blogging!

MAC Eyeshadows in Naked Lunch and Star Violet | Review & Swatches





MAC eyeshadows in Star Violet and Naked Lunch

MAC eyeshadows are yet another raved about product on the blogosphere, so I had to see what the fuss was all about!

I picked up two single pans in Naked Lunch and Star Violet, and a 2-pan MAC palette from the MAC store in Westfield Stratford.
 
Star Violet is a Veluxe Pearl eyeshadow, so it has a lovely shimmer to it. The colour is a slightly plummy pink, with some cranberry tones. It goes really well with green eyes! This lasted around 3 hours on my eyelids before it began to crease.
 
Naked Lunch is one I picked up due to it being reccomended by Essie from Essiebutton! It's a gorgeous pale pink frost which is great for highlighting the browbone and inner corner.

My first impressions were good- both shadows are pigmented and wear well, but I'm dubious to as if they're worth the £10 pricetag per pan; or £12 if you want to buy it packaged. For such a high price, they're pretty average and nothing special, so I'd say they aren't worth the constant hype but I'm still happy with the way they performed.

You can buy MAC eyeshadows in MAC stores, counters and on the MAC website here for £10 a pan or £12 for the single shadows.
