New MAC purchases: Whirl + Soar Lip Liner

Ever since Kylie Jenner made the likes of MAC’s Soar and Whirl lip liner household names they swiftly became top of every beauty lovers’ wish list – cue said items being sold out in every store and an online waiting list as long as your arm. The other day my email pinged and I was greeted with the joyous news that Soar and Whirl lip liner were both back in stock so I pounced online and also treated myself to two new eyeshadows that I had been lusting after for some time – Satin Taupe and Sable.

As for the eyeshadows, they are some of my favourite frosty shades and have completely lived up to my expectations after swooning over many a YouTube tutorial featuring both Satin Taupe and Sable. Satin Taupe (left, first swatch) is a gorgeous frost taupe with silver shimmer running through it. Sable (right, second swatch) is a warmer golden brown with a hint of bronze pearl and looks absolutely gorgeous paired with All That Glitters shadow.

The lip pencils are such a welcome addition to my makeup collection and I am so happy I have finally got my mitts on them after a rather long wait. The hype around these products may have died down by now but I still think they are gorgeous lip colours to own and work so well used alone all over your lip or as a lip liner to perfect and define your pout before applying one of these MAC lipsticks – Brave and Twig would both work spectacularly well! Whirl Lip Pencil (top swatch) is described as a dirty rose and Soar (bottom swatch) is a mid-toned pinky brown. I love both and am pleased to say they are both still in stock if you fancied a little Sunday splurge…just click quickly before they are gone again!

    I got myself Soar a couple of months ago and love it to pieces, thought I lost it once and was so upset! The eyeshadows are gorgeous too! Such lovely purchases!

    I've owned Satin Taupe for a while now and it's not getting as much love as it should! It's such a wonderful shadow 🙂

    My first eyeshadow from mac is Sable and I love it, it's a great everyday shade. That you can mix it up with other shades is great starter shade for everyone! Satin Taupe I think will be my next shade that I get because I find that color to be so flattering!
