John Lewis was the first place I hit - I swatched a few eyeshadows but this one had been calling out to me for a while. It's called Alhambra and retailed for £24, I paid £21.60 and John Lewis had 10% off beauty. It was between this and Isolde (which is next on the list) but I thought I would get more wear out of these neutral peach shades for the summer. Both shades are shimmery, but one side is a natural pinky-peach and the other is a golden peach shade. They compliment each other perfectly and are beautiful enough to use separately. I also tried out the NARS Laguna bronzer but it didn't look too good on me! Although that might have been the 8 hour shift in the heat!

I went to MAC* then as I really wanted a nice matt brown shade for the crease - I was looking for something like Cork, but then I tried out Wedge on the back of my hand and really really liked it. It's surprising as I'd never really liked the look of it online. Thankfully, the eyeshadows in MAC haven't gone up in price along with the lipsticks and they are still £12.
I know I'm a long way off, but if I can get to 50 subscribers, I will be doing a giveaway of either: a MAC* Lipstick or a Chanel Nail Varnish. Possibly limited edition! You will have to be subscribed to my blog to enter so make sure you do!
