I adore Liberty. I used to be a VIP card holder there and would get invited to their champagne evenings! It was the most delightful card in my purse! I get such an amazing feeling when I go into Liberty. Partly because it’s a labyrinth that I can never manage to navigate. I either can’t find most of the store and leave early or I get completely lost and can’t find my way out. I much prefer the getting lost option!!! So, when I heard that Liberty and MAC were doing a collection together I was pretty excited! I, like so many people, have mixed feelings about MAC. Yes, I get bored of their constant limited edition collections. But this, like the Hello Kitty collection, has me really excited! I secretly love MAC. I also secretly really don’t like them. How does that work??? I hate that they’ve elbowed out so many fabulous brands but then again I rely on their products and prefer them to loads of newcomers! I find it frustrating and exhausting. I find myself just giving in and loving them. So I’m EXTRA loving the Liberty collection and really wish I could rush into the store on Thursday morning and snap up the whole lot!!! Weirdest of all, there isn’t a MAC counter in Liberty so this won’t be available there. My fave two things if I had to choose would be the beauty powders and the special scarf! So pretty…
I have the same feelings about Estee Lauder. Obviously both brands are part of the giant machine that is the Lauder Group. Being a self employed freelancer I have to automatically despise all corporate machines but I can’t help finding myself wanting more and more of these brands! What is wrong with me??? Estee Lauder really seem to be coming out with some beautiful and brilliant goodies of late and I’m LOVING the look of the latest Bronze Goddess collection. The colours are so beautiful and vibrant! I think the liquid eyeshadows might be my fave thing from this particular collection. I love the look of cream products in spring and summer time and the colours look just stunning. It makes me want to don a fabulous bathing cotume, a head scarf and a pair of sky scraping wedges to strut around the beach in. Lets not speak of the fact that I’m tres pasty and pudgy right now after a long, cold winter! It’s all about the vision as opposed to the reality! I love the look of the nail varnish in this picture. It’s a metallic purple and will look amazing with the bright coral toned lip gloss! Ooooh, I really have to find a way to get my hands on all these pretty things!!!
What are you lusting after these days???
