Meeting My Make-Up...

It should be pretty obvious to those who follow me that I'm a bit of beauty fiend. Although I'm not all that up-to-date with the newest launches and hottest beauty news I'm definitely in my element when you put me near a MAC or Benefit counter, and I've lost count of the hours I've happily whiled away in the aisles of Boots over the years.

So, without further ado, I present my collection (thus far...):

My everyday collection: Perspex drawer unit was from Amazon.

MAC Pro Palette

Benefit  Smokin' Eyes Palette

Benefit Peek-a-Bright-Eyes Palette.

Benefit Feelin' Dandy Palette.

Benefit Her Name Was Glowla Palette.

Benefit She's So Jetset Palette.

And there we go. Most of what you see I've collected over a ten year period. The Phloof eyeshadow was purchased way back in 2003 for instance. All of the the Benefit sets have been gifts from Mr. G over the past three years (except for Feelin' Dandy, which was from a friend). The L'Occitane Hand Cream was a freebie with Marie Claire or Company (I forget which) a couple of months ago.

It's quite a modest collection compared to a lot of beauty bloggers', but I consider it a work in progress; with Christmas and my Birthday in the next few months I'm hoping to be able to add a few bits and pieces.

MAC Paint Pot in Dangerous Cuvee, Urban Decay Naked 2 PaletteMAC Strobe Cream and the Riri Hearts Mac collection are pretty high up on my wish list right now. If anyone's feeling generous?

I kid, I kid....

So what's caught your eye recently?

Anything you're secretly hoping to find in your Christmas Stocking this year?
