    MAC haul

    FOTDs and Stila haul from Costco added!!!

    The boyfriend got back from Oakland yesterday. We went to Scottsdale Fashion to go to the MAC freestanding store to pick up a few stuff..

    My small haul:

    i KINDA got palette-happy *i'm borrowing your term Christiana*..i have so many eyeshadows, they won't fit my traincase anymore...I need better, BIGGER make-up storage. My caboodles ain't cutting it anymore..And since i don't go to the freestanding store that often, i decided to stock up..I'm sure these will all be filled soon..:)

    I also got a couple shadows from the Starflash collection; Grand Entrance and Glamour Check. The other two are Fig 1 (M2) and Texture e/s. I also got Peachykeen blush, Spiked brow pencil and Graphblack Technakohl which i needed since mine's about to retire soon..Oh and i included Gilded Green in the picture which i got a few days ago..

    I wanted to get more stuff, nothing in particular, was just being but i thought i'll wait til Cult of Cherry comes out next Thursday..


    I was inspired by youtuber Jude Rivera's tutorial on smokey iridescent green (i think that's the title or something like that). Anyway it was using a black base under MAC's Old Gold pigment. My version wasn't half as gorgeous as hers..wait, let me rephrase that, mine sucked..i didn't like how this came out..Thought i'd post it anyway.

    I was going for a defined crease look, but i failed since i think i over blended it..

    I took today off to be with my boyfriend..We mos def slept in til 11, i think..Then, We spent the rest of the day before he went to work, running errands..hehe..whateves, as long as we're together..

    We passed by Costco to check if they have any MAC shadows, but instead i found these which i tried getting a couple weeks back, and they didn't have it..So what i'll do is check back next week to see if they have MAC shadows already..y'all know this girl can't pass up good deals..

    I'm pretty psyched to use this..The brushes are super soft..I actually bought this set mainly for those..The shadows are aight..Very versatile all in all..for $18.99+tax, it's a winner!

    I also got my nails did last Thursday..I'm into glitter tips..But the bf thought the previous one (3d Silver inspired) i had was ghetto..So i got these instead, white tip topped with bigger chunks of glitter, it doesn't show that well here though..He actually likes this one..

    So that's all for now..

    The bf and i are about to watch The Book of Secrets..

    Good Night Ladies!

    i LOVE grand entrance - i would marry mine if i could lol <33

    my makeup doesn't fit into my traincase either. right now i'm looking at the pink one from sephora since i really need to give my makeup a proper home - they're literally scattered all over my bedroom floor :x

    Sheilla said...

    Wow, it's not really a small haul :P Love your peachykeen and starflash. Would you show off the picture of your traincase pleaseee? *Curious*! :D

    amina: i used peachykeen today..i loved it..i'll post an FOTD later..

    Cheezie: I was thinking of getting another traincase but, what i really need is a vanity and maybe one of those drawer thingy-majiggys from Costco or Officemax..

    Sheilla: I'm working on posting my MAC collection..

    Ren: I know, when the MUA swatched it together on my hand i loved it..they're so soft and so easy to blend..i wish they came out in other colors that are not similar to othe permanent ones..
