MAC Eyeshadow Addiction & Sumptuous Olive



I just couldn't stop at 4. I tried, I really did (kind of) but I can feel the addiction taking over. My name is Nicki and I am a MAC eyeshadow addict. It has been so much fun picking one eyeshadow every month (pretty much on pay day!) to add to my quad palette but now this palette is full (see my full palette here) and I have my eye on a 15 pan palette instead. It will take a long time to fill and way too much money (seriously £10 an eyeshadow is just ridiculous, I know that) but I just can't help myself.

In fact, I know the addiction is getting bad because this month I actually bought 2!! Shocking I know! My eyeshadow of choice this month was Patina which you can read about here but I had a really crap couple of days during the month. Work was stressful, I was very hormonal and I wasn't feeling well, some days you just need to treat yourself, so I ordered another one. Oops.

My latest addition is Sumptuous Olive and I am in love already! This is a gorgeous khaki/olive green with gold shimmer and it is beautiful. When I saw swatches I was worried that it may be a bit too gold but the gold and green are well balanced and it looks lovely with pale skin and brunette hair.

My favourite way to wear this so far is over the Maybelline Colour Tattoo in On and On Bronze and with Espresso blended in to the outer corner and crease.


As my quad is full I am having to temporarily house this eyeshadow in my Unii palette and have asked my lovely husband for a 15 pan palette for my birthday. That's two more pay days away so if all goes to plan I should have 7 shades (unless I have another really awful week of course) and my palette will be almost half full, how exciting!

I currently have my eye on Sable and Smut. What shades do you recommend? Let me know by commenting below.....
