Hello again makeup lovers!
We all own a few collectables in our makeup which we are too scared to touch. I hold my hands up and admit it, I am the worse culprit. As I was tidying through my makeup I stumbled across my ‘untouchables’ box and decided to share it with you all since so many of you have asked to see my makeup collection.
If I was to make a post my full collection, we would be here all day. Today I want to talk you through some my collectable items. Now, the important thing to note here is, I own a lot of makeup and I have been collecting for years. I am a hoarder. Some people collect stamps, I collect makeup! I’m sure I’ve said this before. It’s a habit that I cannot kick.
Let’s kick it off with these beauties..
You’ll never guess where I picked these up? M&S. They were only £12.50 each I think and it was a limited luxe collection for Summer a couple of years ago. They remind me very much of the Guerlain highlighters but for a fraction of the price. These are too pretty to touch, but I love admiring them.
The Burberry Runway highlighter is so intricately designed with lots of careful detail. It’s just so beautiful and I have only swatched it in the corner of the circle as I didn’t want to ruin the design. One of the many pretty highlighters I own, the packaging for this is so luxury.
I had a really big drama buying the notorious ‘Oh Darling’ that every single girl in the country was searching for last year. When it’s so sought after you need back ups right? This is my back up. I’ll always love this highlighter because the colour payoff is so insane.
This collection by MAC in collaboration with designer Giambattista Valli is one of my most favourite collections ever EVER to be made. It’s all about the packaging and attention to detail on it. I love the colours as they are so vibrant and versatile and I really feel like MAC haven’t topped any other collection since. I can confidently say I made many good friends because of this collection! Why you ask? Me and a handful of other girls were frantically waiting for the launch on these and our love of lipstick started a friendship! I am not ashamed to say I even booked a a day off for this launch as we didn’t know what time it would be up online. I could not risk it. Makeup is serious business! If your not an addict, you probably be laughing reading this. If your in the makeup community, you will totally understand what I’m saying!
From MAC’s future forward collection this is one vivid and crazy looking highlighter! Called ‘Otherearthly’ the colours in this pan are amazing, although I will never touch my own. I did swatch it in store and the one thing I kick myself for is not buying a back up. It’s something a little different MAC released and it looks so pretty!
This luxury palette purchase was made courtesy of my friend Beauty Breaks. She convinced me I needed it. It was always sold out everywhere and so hard to find. I have swatched this but I don’t want to use it! I feel like it’s going to stay in the ‘Untouchables’ box. It’s too pretty to touch!
One of the most eye dropping highlighters. Look at that floral print!! I die! I have back ups because I am mad. One set is part of the ‘untouchables’ collection and the other set I actually use. I mad about Dior. I have been collecting their limited edition pieces since I was 18. It’s a never ending love affair with Dior as they always pay so much attention to detail and packaging. Love!! Ever having a bad day? Just take a look at these to brighten your day.
It was too much to do a post on these separately so I am showing these to you together. Very recent purchases as you’ll know from my previous blog post – Mac Poesia and Mac Vibe Tribe. Equally beautiful, different and never to be touched!
That’s it for the untouchables for now. I’m sure I’ll have lots more to add on a follow up post in a few months time. I hope you all enjoyed the read xo
Do you own any of these?
