mac chatterbox from alice

This blog post is pretty long overdue as it was during the october midterm when I got an e-mail from alice explaining to me I had won her giveaway.
I feel like I should tell you a few things at this point -

1. I don't win things often. I'm not sure if this is down to karma or chance but I am just not a lucky person (or maybe I am? have you read that theory that luck is really based on whether you are a pessimist or an optimist? Either way I had never won a giveaway before!)  So I was ridiculously excited when I found out I had won alice's giveaway.

2. 'Who's Alice?' Alice is a blogger and a lot of you may already read her blog There's Something About Alice. She is around the same age as I am and her blog is really, really lovely.

3. 'What did you win in the giveaway?' I'm not sure if this should be a point (but hey, I'm making it one) since you all can clearly read and you've probably already looked at the photos above but in-case you're still unaware I won a mac lipstick in chatterbox! (is that what you say? a mac lipstick in chatterbox? or is it a mac lipstick called chatterbox? I'm so clueless..) The giveaway was a mac lipstick of your choice and I chose chatterbox.

The package that Alice sent the lipstick in is adorable - I know there's only a little checked pattern on it but it's the small details that excite me! The note (which I accidentally tore slightly when I was opening the package... I was excited, sorry) was lovely too - and the paper has owls on it ^.^

Chatterbox is quite a bright pink or at least bright for me so to tone it down I apply a lipgloss or a lip-balm on top. It was my first ever mac lipstick and I'm not disappointed. The sleek packaging... the creamy texture... uh it's just amazing.

Since receiving chatterbox I've bought another mac lipstick in lovelorn (which I am equally, if not more impressed with - possible review soon?)

So, I guess what I want to say is a huge thank you to alice for the giveaway - I never realised how much I'd love chatterbox or mac lipsticks in general.  Also winning something made me vair, vair happy - that sounds lame but it's true!

 I'm planning to have a little giveaway for you guys soon... 
what would you like to win?!

P.S I overused the words 'mac' and 'lipstick' in this post - sorry! I mean that's specifically what this blog post is about but still... it's annoying lol.

P.P.S I used lol ironically.


  1. I have Hue which is my perfect nude - finally! After ages of searching for my perfect nude lipstick I've finally found it haha, but the problem is I really want another now but they're so expensive :( love the blog by the way :) xx
