Valentine's Day MAC Haul

I hope you have all had a splendid Saturday. Me and the bf went to London today and spent the day hand in hand, merrily skipping from shop to cafe, lingering over coffee and gazing into each other eyes! Ha! It was a delightful day, and I got treated to a few spesh Valentine goodies. :)
This is what I got from MAC.

The lippie line up from left ~ right:
Pretty Please
Costa Chic
Impassioned
Dollymix Blush
Here is the swatches of the lippies for you ladies:

Pretty Please as you can see is a very sheer oyster pink colour. I think it is divine and would be perfect to use over a brighter colour to mute it down and add a luscious finish to the lips.
Costa Chic was the purchase I was most unsure about. I picked it up in MAC Pro and then decided against it. By the time we had meandered down to Selfridges, I had decided I did actually want it! And I am so pleased I fought the voices in my head. It is an awesome colour. It has a frost finish to it, and is such a warm pinky coral lovely colour. It is so flattering and really accentuates a tan and is like a Rio Carnival on the lips!
Impassioned has been on my wishlist for some time now, and it is a perfect amplied lippie. Whereas Show Orchid is quite a cool hot pink with blue undertones, Impassioned is a very warm hot pink lippie with a hint of orange and gold running through it! Perfection!
Dollymix blush was quite an impulse buy as I hadn't planned to get another blush...but I heard this one whisper my name as I walked past and I couldnt resist. Sorry there isn't a swatch but the picture really wasn't doing it justice. It is a concentrated bright pink Sheertine Shimmer with precious gold reflexes running through it! I <3 it! :) 
As well as playing with make up, we also drank tea and ate cake!


And marvelled at French Connection's window display...! The mannakins' bunny ears were wiggling up and down...sooo cute :)


Thanks hunnies, as always, for reading my little ramblings, I hope you have all had a fab day, whatever you have gotten up to.
