I love all these shades. I love an accent colour for eyes but I have to say, I didn’t find the texture of royal wink too easy to work with. It is a tiny bit drier than other Fluidine shades I have tried, so you have to really work the formula to get it going. Having said that, once it’s on it really sets and is super longlasting.

I love Cardinal, it is the perfect red for wearing with minimal makeup for a simple, yet chic look.

And then I am just OBSESSED with Hollywood Cerise, which I have been calling Refined Violet as this was the early sample name. It is one of the most gorgeous lipsticks I have ever laid eyes on. I think I may even like it more than Electric Pink from Tom Ford.

It lasts all day, stays super vibrant and really lights up my complexion. LOVE IT. It’s limited edition which totally scares me. I think I am going to need a back up!

MAC Philip Treacy Collection is out now. Everything I have mentioned here is limited edition and available at MAC Pro Stores, Free Standing Stores in Liverpool and Spitalfiends, also Harrods, Selfridges, Harvey Nichols London & Edinburgh, Fenwick Brent Cross and John Lewis Southampton.

You can find my beautiful Hollywood Cerise HERE. Also I am wearing it in my latest video.
