Sunday Stash Shopping #21

I decided to pull out my MAC Fabulously Festive Face Kit in warm, to give it a go before deciding to part ways with it. These photos were taken before Chinese New Year, and after much delay, I am posting it now. Reason? Well, I have parted ways with this palette so this is like the last hurrah. I actually like this palette, don’t get me wrong, but I do have a lot of similar shades and this palette deserves more love with the new owner. If she’s reading this, I hope she’ll find some inspiration with this look I created.


MAC palette


I like that there are 4 eye shadows and a blush in this palette. Omega is great for filling in the brows (or crease) and Soft Brown is a great lid and crease colour as well. I’d use Carbon for lining my eyes, and Golden Flurry is best for lid colour. For this look, I used Golden Flurry on my mobile lids, Soft Brown on the crease, Omega on the outer corner and Carbon to line my eyes. I also filled in my brows using Omega which I think is quite a natural colour. Seasonal Appeal is run through my cheeks and I finished the look with a natural lip colour. I can’t remember what lipstick I used. Sorry!

On my face, I applied the Make Up For Ever Mat Velvet+ Foundation to cover up all redness. Otherwise, the orange blush will look really muddy on my face. When I use this foundation, I don’t need any concealers. It’s a high coverage foundation but it’s never cakey.




I hope you liked this look. Bye bye palette!

  • ….LILY! I was going to comment about how much I loved the cooler pink lip with this warmer cheek, but you don’t even remember what you used?! GURL. Seriously, if that’s your natural lip colour ‘with just a slick of balm la la la’ Imma slap you.

    Bye bye, palette! I always seem to accumulate neutral palettes too. Because useful and easy! But also often redundant in my stash XD

      LOL LOL! I really can’t remember. It might be some Chubby Stick, it might not >_< Sorry. Consider me slapped. HAHAHAHA!

  • Icaria

    Oh Lily! I think this is one of my favorite looks on you I love the thick line an you look so relaxed!

    • Lily

      Thanks Helene. I took these photos in the morning after a long shower. I guess I was relaxed!

  • *waves at the palette*

    The new owner will be seriously happy with that gorgeous blush!!

    • Lily

      She said she has warm skin tone, so I’m sure it’ll look great on her!

  • Hey Lily, looove the look you created! Gotta say this looks like a very versatile one, but by now you must have accumulated several similar alternatives with possibly more dimension and better texture!

    • Lily

      You’re right Sunny. I’m being more picky with my products. Don’t know if it’s a good thing though!

  • Hi Lily, this is actually the type of makeup I do quite often lately (with other products and brands). I think its the black eyeshadow lining the eyes that give it the characteristics “same look” thing. I really like it 🙂

    • Lily

      I think the black liner smudged all over kinda look gives more edge. Makes my eyes look bigger too. Glad to know I’m not the only one who likes this kind of look!

      • I love it. I think that’s exactly why I like it as you say, it gives an edge. (otherwise I look too “nice girl”….)

        • Lily

          Lol I know what you mean!

  • Liz

    Love the shades in that palette! Just so darn wearable and practical. Hope the new owner likes it! And I’ve used that MUFE foundation in the past – worked so much better on me than the HD foundation that everyone raved about.

    • Lily

      I bought this and the HD one at the same time. I used them interchangeably and I like them both!

  • I like the eye look you created with the black liner!

    • Lily

      Thanks Larie. Bet you’ll look great with this look on!

  • TracyBeautyReflections

    I have a Winter palette like this someplace too, but the blush is Mocha I think. I love it too, but don’t use it that often. Too much other stuff gets in the way LOL. Pretty look Lily!

    • Lily

      You’re so right about having other stuff in the way. That’s why I love my stash shopping post. Helps me filter older products!

  • liyeun

    You know, i have only tried the HD foundie and that didnt quite impress me. This matte one that you’re wearing somehow intrigues me. I think im gonna check it out someday. Anyway, i love this look on you. Very daylight appropriate, yet a little sexay. Maybe it’s your eyes! Lol

    • Lily

      If you have oily skin, this one is pretty good. However I do find that if my skin isn’t prepped properly, it’ll emphasise some pores!

  • Oh yessss I like this look! Love it, even! I can’t stop looking at your eyes 🙂

    • Lily

      Aaw Thanks Melissa <3
