Sorry I have a been a bit MIA on my blog this week. My laptop charger decided to die earlier this week...and ironically, I could only get a replacement by "ordering online"! Ha!
And annoyingly, this week I have been drowning with inspiration on blog posts, so meh! Going to have to be a busy blogger and catch up with my gazillion posts!
So firstly, I thought I would show you all my goodies from the Give Me Liberty of London MAC collection. This launched in stores on Thursday and is online next Tuesday (or is it Thursday...) ? I don't quite know but I was lucky enough to receive these lippies on Monday from a little USA fairy. She sent them over for me along with an international swapsies we were doing. So I have had them for nearly a week and been dying to post about them...!

Peachstock, Petals & Peacocks, Blooming Lovely, Ever Hip
As many of you are aware, I am a super lipstick junkie. They are the one product I get most excited about and when I saw the collection on Temptalia, I knew I had to just get all of them!
I think the packaging for this collection is just adorable. Some people I know aren't keen on it at all, but I think it is super cute.
Here are some ickle swatches for you...
Peachstock - A satin finish that is definitely more brown than peachy! Already available as a pro product. I am still a little bit undecided about this one. I love my nudes and peachy lippies, and thought this would follow suit...but it is a definite orangey/brown. Reminds me of Revlon's Nude Attitude which I detest. However, I am finding this more wearable and think with a nude lipgloss over the top like Florabundance, it looks really flattering.
Petals & Peacocks - Eeek, probably the one I was most excited about getting. It is a Amplified finish and is a gorgeous bright, vibrant fuschia, pinky purple. It instantly reminded me of Show Orchid by MAC. Even though Show Orchid has a richer, bluer undertone to it, they could be comparable. So I whipped out Show Orchid to show you of their similarities...
