Being a Physicist and quite a bit of a nerd in my spare time the concept of MAC’s Heavenly Creatures collection very much appealed with their talk of galaxies and ‘go glamorously inter-galactic’. What more could I want? Anyway, I happened to pop along to a MAC counter recently and had a look at them. Frankly, I could have bought all of them and am very tempted to get some more. However, I was being sensible (and should continue to be) and just bought one, Universal Appeal. They retail at £16.50, so they aren’t exactly cheap but I think they are really good.
This is basically a brown/purple/gold smokey eye palette all in one baked pot. So, perfect for travelling. Perfect for having in your handbag for if you suddenly end up on a night out. Perfect if you aren’t the best at creating a smokey eye because this pretty much does it for you. Anyway, photos!

I really like my two new products in here and I think they work quite well together too. The lipstick has already become a staple and the eyeshadow will definitely be my go to for when I want a smokey eye 🙂
What do you think? Did you try anything from the heavenly creatures range?
